New Hermantown hotel opens in time for marathon weekend

A month ago, it appeared that the new Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Hermantown might not be open in time for the busy Grandma’s Marathon weekend.

But in some good news for both the business and for runners looking for a last-minute place to stay the five-story, 80-room hotel opened its doors on Thursday.

It’s located south of Miller Trunk Highway and west of Haines Road.
