We stayed here on the weekend of Lucky palooza. Check in went fast and easy. The room and Hotel was clean and the staff were helpful. The bar and restaurant are ok but there is a whole lot better ones within walking distance. The parking is in the back in a ramp that cost 15 bucks a day so remember... More

St. Paul had an inaugural "St.Patty's Day" street festival on Saturday, March 14. We saw the festival was happening and that the HISPD was VERY centrally located to/for the action and had a room left - so what the hay. Having had my share of green beer in the past, we kinda knew what we were getting into, but since... More

This hotel was pretty basic. The breakfast, service, staff were all above average. Good enough for the price. I might look for a better option next time around. Having said that I would give a three on five.

i would only stay here if I were going to the Excel energy center....it is clean, and close. That's it....not much else impressed me. The lobby and the restaurant are in need of updating, but you certainly can't beat the location.

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We were initially put in a room next to the ice machine but we were quickly given a better room when we asked. Clean, quiet and comfortable. The pool was closed for repair, which was disappointing. Great location near the Xcel Center.
