I'm not usually a Holiday Inn guy, but I like this one. I've been to St. Paul numerous times on business and I like this one the best. It's very centrally located, across front the arena. It's within short walking distance of plenty of restaurants and bars, and has a great patio for the summer. You could miss the patio... More

You are strictly paying for convenience here. Way overpriced for the type of room I had. Extra fee for parking. Difficult to find how to enter parking ramp for a first time visit. Small room that needs updating! Bathroom really small. Staff was great! Would only stay there if I needed the convenience of the location.

Stayed as part of a "wedding block." Pros: Employees were nice. Free WiFi (though it disconnects a lot). Walking distance to most things downtown. Cons: Even with the reduced wedding block price, was a bit pricy for a Holiday Inn with an additional $15 per day parking fee. Additionally, the exercise room (which was important to me in choosing this... More

All furnishings new but structurally, building was built 30+ years ago. Parking was extremely convenient, but 15./day for in and out privileges. Pros: Bed pretty comfy and both soft/firm pillows.

This was a good location for us and the staff was very helpful in getting too and from the Prairie Home Companion show at MacAlester College. Our room was a little small, but we could walk to a couple of different places for breakfast and to the Minnesota History Center. Had to pay for parking.

Price was high for a Saturday night stay. Small but clean room. No frills. Enjoyed the location, lots of bars/restaurants within walking distance or a cheap cab ride away. Easy but expensive parking on site. Would stay again if the price was right.

I stayed here over the weekend while visiting my son. Beware, the hotel is in a convenient location, but is under renovations. My room had not been updated yet and it showed (dingy carpet, running toilet, bad lighting). While I understand that the remodeling is definitely needed, they began working on the room right above me at 8:15 Sunday morning!... More

My husband, son and I were in St. Paul for a weekend wedding and spent two nights at this hotel. The room was clean, but decorated in depressing brown and beige tones. There was no vent in the bathroom, so, when showering, you had to leave the door open or try to dry off in a totally steamy bathroom with... More

Stayed for a recent show- this place gets a five for location (excel right across the street, many restaurants within walking distance, Science Museum a few blocks away as is the river) but a three for actual accommodations. Not bad, not great- I guess you could say it serves it purpose.
