The hotel is recently remodeled (looks like work is ongoing, but didn't bother us) and it looks great. The room was nicely done and even though it overlooked the pool it was quiet once the pool hours concluded. The wireless worked well, the shower was great, the bed was comfortable, the staff were very nice (even the maintenance guys) and... More

We needed to be in Minneapolis to help set up a fund raiser for the Simpson homeless shelter there. We checked in about 2:30 on Sunday May 6th and left on Thursday May 10th. We got a great rate, and because our room had a problem with a wireless connection we were up graded to a suite. The rooms were... More

Check in was at 3 in did not get into my room until after 4. Hot tub and pool were closed and the elevator was turned off and no way for a wheelchair to get down, and my TV didn't work for one night. Supposedly re-modeled but felt very outdated, so somewhere else, or risk it but with family it... More

When needing to do business in St. Paul, this hotel and restaurant is more than adequate. Check-in was fabulous and friendly. They continue to keep the hotel upgraded and has some old world charm. The bar and restaurant were very good. Yet, I just have to mention the night time staff, was just very unhelpful and not friendly at all.... More

Just stayed here for 3 nights with a youth sports team. Here are the PROS & CONS... CONS: -3 separate buildings ( IF YOU HAVE A GROUP THIS IS A PAIN!)- when you book make SURE and request the rooms in the SAME building.

I flew into Minneapolis for a short mid-week business trip, and realized upon check-in that I'd made the right decision. The front desk staff was so personable and helpful. I stayed in one of the guest suites, which was perfectly appointed with everything I needed to be comfortable while getting my work done. The bed was super comfortable, and the... More

Good bang for your buck here. Hotel is kind of dated, but looks pretty neat. rooms were ok, but the rates well made up for it. if you're looking for a 5 star place to pamper an international business guest, you're going to have to spend a little more than these very fair rates. If you're looking for a cheap... More

Was in town for a weekend trip to watch some basketball. This wonderful gem has an old school feel to it. The decor may be a bit dated but in my opinion that gives it character. The front desk staff was very nice and extremely helpful with some directions and the answering of questions. The room was very spacious and... More

This was a very adequate stop over hotel for us in Minneapolis and we managed to get a decent rate compared to some places. The rooms were spacious and clean with decent beds and bathroom. I really liked the style of the hotel, like a European mountain lodge with a lot of wood and stained glass in pleasant communal areas.... More
