Notes: Named for the French explorer Pierre Esprit Radisson, the hotel was located at 45 S. Seventh Street in Minneapolis, Minn. Built in 1909 at a cost of $1.5 million, the 12-story, 350-room hotel opened December 15, 1909 and was the home of the famous Teco Inn. A later addition brought the room count to 500. In the 1950s, the hotel had two cafes: the Flame Room and the Viking Room. By the 1970s the hotel was in decline and closed November 20, 1981. It was imploded on December 15, 1982.
