Holiday Inn & Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse

Eau Claire, WI

The developers of the new Holiday Inn multi-story hotel, conference center, and Johnny’s Italian SteakHouse called upon the innovative hospitality design expertise of River Valley Architects for their new facility located adjacent to Interstate 94 in Eau Claire, WI. Schematic plans were developed to optimize the site and building orientation, to maximize views from the interstate and to create a separate identity for Johnny’s Italian SteakHouse. Through meticulous planning, franchise elements for both the hotel and restaurant were incorporated into the nearly 100,000 square foot structure that includes a conference center, bar, restaurant, 140 guest rooms, fitness area and swimming pool. This project received the 2013 Gold Award for Commercial Projects $2 – $10 million from the Associated Builders and Contractors Projects of Distinction Program.
