Great location close to Xcel Center, RiveeCentre, and Science Museum. Terrific Liffey's pub on first floor of hotel. Rooms are clean but small. Bathrooms outdated and small for more than one person. Staff is helpful and friendly. Great shuttle to Grand Avenue for local shopping. Try Cosetta's Italian Deli next door. Best pastries and take away salads this side of... More

Nothing fancy, but typical Holiday Inn quality. The only trouble I had was figuring out where to park while checking in! The staff are very friendly, professional, and helpful. Close to thew convention center and Science Museum.

Small, modern (updated) rooms. Our room smelled like cleaning chemicals and mold. Odd combination that left me sneezing and with a headache in the am. Overall, though, for the location, friendly staff and comfortable bed - I was okay with our one night here.

We stay at this location in June 2015. The location was conveniently located close to the east bound I-35 exit ramp (basically, exit take a right and the hotel is on the right hand corner). There is a entrance to the hotel from W 7th Street, but not really anywhere to unload. Drive a little further down a bit and... More

Started our road trip here. Hotel has a nice-looking Irish pub downstairs with a cool balcony. We went to Surly Brewing instead, about a 20 minute drive toward Minneapolis. Great brewery tour and beers, too. The hotel has a very cool old antique shop just down the street and tons of bars and restaurants within short walking distance. You can... More

We were in St. Paul to attend a wedding. This hotel was perfectly located within walking distance to any downtown St. Paul location. The hotel was very accommodating and helpful.

My girlfriends and I stayed here after seeing New Kids on the Block at the Xcel Energy Center. The location is perfect if you're going to an event there, as it is right across the street. We ate and drank in the pub located on the ground floor and enjoyed our meal (and really enjoyed the drinks). The room was... More

Best location in the area. There are several pubs, Italian grocery/restaurant, antique malls all in walking distance. We requested a room with view of St Paul's Cathedral (it's beautiful by day and night it's lit up. Spectacular!) Staff is wonderful and goes over and beyond. The Livvey Pub in the lobby closes early so please start your pub crawl here... More

This hotel does not have a huge list of amenities, but it was clean, the pillows were great! and labeled as 'soft' or 'firm'.
