We asked for - and received - an upper floor room facing the cathedral. Am I ever glad we did! The cathedral is beautiful both night and day, especially when lit at night. We stayed here for the Minnesota State Fair, and even though we had to drive to the nearest shuttle point, it didn't matter because this hotel has... More

Overall it was a positive experience. Rooms are not very big but we were just here to sleep anyway. Bathrooms are small but the towels do NOT hang over the toilet which is a huge plus!! Air conditioner was very loud and probably biggest negative. Room was clean. Great bar and patio attached. Parking ramp attached. Hotel rate of $14... More

This hotel was very clean. Had a nice restaurant attached to it, although service was slow. But $15 bucks for parking.. Come on.. I'm already staying there. Anyways staff was very helpful in term of getting to Amtrak and giving easy directions. Would recommend to anyone.

Stayed at this property to attend a trade show at the nearby Saint Paul convention center. This hotel's location is perfect - practically across the street from the convention center. The hotel offers a convenient and flexible shuttle service, as well as an on-site restaurant. There is also a "rooftop" lounge that serves decent drinks and seems to capture an... More

Just another night on the road, just another room at a hotel. Came away feeling unimpressed. Arrived during a high traffic hour and had trouble figuring out the entrance, ended up circling the block. Room was on par with other chains. Ordered room service for breakfast and didn't get the entire order. Pricey breakfast. Staff were all pleasant and helpful.

We stayed here while playing the Irish Fair of Minnesota. Always a nice property, with a competent and friendly staff. The location can't be beat, with the river & the Excel Center just a walk away. Plenty of places to eat close by, too, from hip coffee shops to high end steakhouses downtown; the restaurant & pub in the hotel... More

Great place to stay when your heading to the EXCEL ENERGY CENTER.. Nice rooms -comfy beds- great shower -nice staff- quick check in. Over all great stay. I like the individual air conditioner. Can really cool off the room. Mini frigde and microwave. The only negative is the elevator is really slow. But that's nit pickin.
