Usually, to see waterfalls you need to head into the great outdoors – but not in the most populous city of South Dakota. In lovely Sioux Falls, water cascades around town, next to cafes, boutiques and nightspots. The city is also known as one of the healthiest in America and has been voted as one of the best places to live in the country. Buying into the themes of wellbeing and water, hotels in Sioux Falls offer great dining, comfortable rooms and heated swimming pools. Here are the best.

1. ClubHouse Hotel and Suites Sioux Falls, for fireside conversations

Be sure to make good use of the complimentary cruiser bicycles and explore the surrounding area.

2. Courtyard by Marriott Sioux Falls, for an excellent location

Bring your dancing shoes – the Hilton Garden Inn Sioux Falls South has a ballroom, a bold counterpoint to its largely businesslike feel. Foodies are catered for with a buffet or cooked-to-order breakfast, an American restaurant, and a market that’s open 24/7. Rooms feature sophisticated decor and have custom-designed beds, microwaves and – in the upgraded suites – whirlpool tubs.

4. GLo Best Western Dawley Farms in Sioux Falls, for contemporary cool

Channeling the cascades of the Big Sioux River, GLo Best Western Dawley Farms has a blue, wave-like exterior and carpets that resemble a babbling brook. Meanwhile, the lounge is like a modern design museum, with funky swivel chairs and couches, multi-colored light fixtures on the ceiling and Lichtenstein-style paintings on the walls.

5. Staybridge Suites Sioux Falls Southwest, an IHG Hotel, for a work-away vacation

Offering spacious apartment-style studios, plus one and two-bedroom suites, Staybridge is one of the best hotels in Sioux Falls for combining work with play. Between free wifi, an indoor pool, a hot tub, fitness center and guest laundry, you can really make this a home from home. To kick back, head for a fire pit in the outdoor living space or soak in one of the whirlpool baths.

6. Hyatt Place Sioux Falls South, for Lake Lorraine views

This Hyatt edges one of Sioux Falls’ most fascinating sights – Lake Lorraine, a clear lake on the Skunk Creek aquifer. It was dug out almost entirely by one man, Duane Fanebust, who worked on the project for nearly 20 years – his noisy excavator even earned him the nickname ‘Squeek’. You can get an eyeful of his extraordinary creation from some of the suites here.

7. Holiday Inn Sioux Falls-City Centre, an IHG Hotel, for easy convention center access

8. Residence Inn Sioux Falls, for fun with all the family
