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. The room was clean and moderately furnished as you would expect. One can trust that you will be treated well and have a nice stay. We had breakfast in the... More

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'. 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

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

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
