Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Visitors to the city of Duluth wishing to stay near the downtown area will have one more option return to their list of where to spend their nights.

The Radisson Hotel Duluth-Harborview is set to reopen Thursday morning.

The hotel has been closed for nearly three months due to a March 13th water main break that flooded the hotel's lower level.

The break flooded part of the hotel basement, along with the Skywalk tunnel beneath Superior Street.

The water affected the power supply to the hotel along with the boilers and heating and cooling system.

The total cost of the project was more than $3 million and suffered delays due to availability of parts and equipment to repair the damage.

"We're all set to open tomorrow and very excited. We [have] one of the state of the art equipment with top of the line efficiency. So we are looking forward to serving our guests in Duluth again," said Jim Briner, general manager of the Radisson Hotel.

The Radisson Hotel has been part of downtown Duluth for more than 40 years.
