Longtime Aberdeen Hotel Closing, Affecting Nearly 60 Workers
ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — A longtime hotel in Aberdeen is closing after more than five decades in business.
The Ramada Aberdeen Hotel and Conference Center has 151 rooms, a restaurant and a bar, along with nearly 11,000 square feet of banquet space. It opened in 1964.
Owner Dakota Lodging says the addition of hotels and convention space in Aberdeen has created "over-supply in a flat market," and business has been slow for years.
The hotel will close after Oct. 26. Nearly 60 full- and part-time employees will be affected.
