About Holiday Inn Express & Dakota Dunes Event Center

At the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dakota Dunes – Event Center we know wedding planning usually begins long before an engagement. We want to make every vision you’ve had for your wedding a reality, and we will do everything we can to make your experience enjoyable. It’s our goal to make sure your first step into the next chapter of your life is memorable in the best way and reflects your unique vision. We cater to weddings large and small with enough event space to host up to 450 guests, and the ability to partition the room into a more intimate space for smaller gatherings.

Our stunning event space features a modern look with neutral colors, which creates the perfect backdrop for any style of décor, from lavish to minimal. Although our event space is amazing, (really, we could talk about it all day) what steals the show is our caring staff. We love what we do. There is nothing more rewarding than the glow of a newly-married couple and the loving friends and family surrounding them. We strive to create a warm, attentive environment and our team works very hard to make sure that no detail is left unnoticed. We are eager to assist in any way, from start to finish; no request is too small!

When booking our event space, you are choosing a great location at an exceptional value. Here are just a few of the perks included in the room rental fee:

  • No food and beverage minimum
  • Stage, skirting, and lighting for head table
  • Black, white, and ivory table linens
  • Lit cake table
  • Gift table and guest book table
  • Colored napkins
  • Setup, teardown, and clean-up of the event space
  • Flatware, glassware, and fine china
  • Servers, bartenders, event manager, and security
  • On-site event coordination
  • Save around 5% in taxes (when compared with venues in Sioux City, Iowa)
