With access to the Sioux Falls Convention Center and the Denny Sanford Premier Center, the Sheraton is perfect for a trip to Sioux Falls or to grab a bite or drink before or after an event. 605 stopped by Water’s Edge Lounge in the hotel’s open atrium to see their version of the Old Fashioned, and to try the (delicious) Falling Water Grille.
