I was recently caught in the 2008 Blizzard in South Dakota while on business. The staff at Fairfield Inn & Suites in Rapid City was extremely accomodating and gracious as they tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We sustained 70-80 mph winds and over 20 inches of snow with drifts up over 10 feet. I used my room key to scrape my windows when the roads were finally opened. The staff was FABULOUS to all!
