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'. This hotel is within walking distance of many historic homes, water's edge of the rive (not sure which) and some great food places, a couple of antique shops and a few bohemian shops plus across the...

It is located in the heart of St. Paul near the XL Center. There are a bunch of bars and restaurants within very easy walking distance, including the Liffey which is their hotel bar and restaurant. The rooms were very modern and very clean. The lighting temperature and beds are all perfect. The only knocks that I have on the... More

An okay place to stay, but far from a quality city hotel. Clean and spacious rooms, but not high quality at all. Entrances to the lobby are a bit clunky. The one facing the main street requires you to take your luggage up a couple of steps. No ramp. To get to the "taxi-car entrance," you have to be able... More

I attended a conference here for the entire week. The parking arrangement was ok most of the time but one night there was an event at the Xcel Center which made parking impossible the next day. Parking most days was $4 but the day after the event the parking was $15. The front desk staff were not very helpful with... More

Hi benrud3, Thank you for your review of our conference room. We are glad that you were able to make use of the parking ramp next to the hotel each day, although we apologize that the charge was larger on one day due to the event. The ramp is not owned by the hotel, so unfortunately there is little that... More

I've stayed here a couple of times while in town on business. The location is extremely convenient - close to downtown locations, right across the street from Xcel Energy Center/River Centre, and near a number of restaurants. It's an easy 15-minute drive from the St. Paul Downtown Airport. The hotel itself is pretty average - not bad, not great, just... More

I stayed here for a business trip. The accommodations were very comfortable, and the room was nice and clean. Hotel check-in staff was courteous and friendly, and helpful too. I needed to connect to a local bus line, and was provided with easy to follow directions on how to find the bus stop, what to expect for a fare, and... More

One of the worst hotel experiences I've had. First this area of St. Paul is not where you want to try and sleep. You're surrounded by bars and this hotel had people coming in and out all hours of the night, many were not even guests. The walls might as well have been made of paper with all the noise... More

This a great place if you are going to the Excel center. It is a typical Holiday Inn with a fridge and microwave in the room. The room was l clean and well appointed but nothing special.

The hotel was perfectly located across the street from Xcel Energy Center. We were there for Jets vs. Wild game. The room was spacious and clean. Staff was friendly. The Liffey Pub was great fun and full of both team's fans and served up a very good burger. Was a bit overpriced but the convenience factor was the deciding factor.... More
