I absolutely love this place! The staff is amazing! You meet a smile with everyone you meet and they go out of their way to make your visit the best it can be. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The atmosphere is so relaxing. The train theme and the history of the building are a perfect combo. I would recommend... More

I am pleased to write about our experience this time; the last time I here I was fairly harsh in my comments. Nothing negative to report - room was clean, well-appointed and the bed and temp were perfect. Hotel lobby uniquely designed; it was formerly a train depot and they've retaining the original rails coming in. The center area (originally... More

Staff at the Best Western Plus in St. Paul were very helpful, pleasant, and welcoming. Hotel and rooms were clean and well kept. The bed was not the most comfortable, but room temp was good. Great location for my business trip. I would recommend staying at this hotel and will likely return for work again. Nice restaurant within walking distance... More

This is a great hotel. Alyssa, at the front desk is great. If you are in St. Paul, you need to stay here! Easy parking, close to food and ice rink. I highly recommend it. I like to stay in this neat, old train works.

Okay place but breakfast hours on weekend need to be extended. Beds are a bit stiff. Staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and pretty typical. Temperature gets controlled from front desk which is not particularly convenient. Convenient location for me in that I come to St. Paul to attend Hamline University Hockey games and the rink is...

The staff was like family from the minute that I arrived!! They made my stay feel like home. Notably, but not entirely: Alisa, managed bar and front desk and was great to talk with!! Sandy, the manager was also great to talk to at breakfast and during the day! She was very nice and super supportive when Gidgett was in... More

I stayed here for several nights. The service was excellent, they helped with my stay anyway they could and only charged for extra service rarely. I used their shuttle and it was always on time and glad to be there in the worst conditions.

If you like the BW formula then this is the place for you. The layout & building offer something different. The gym sauna pool combo was welcome. The train stop area for breakfast was different. Pets are allowed so if you have allergies then you might want to make sure you know who/what has been in touring beforehand/recently.

The staff was very friendly! Unfortunately, the hot tub wasn't working and I was really looking forward to it. Love the layout of the hotel and the location! Nice little bar area and nice that they had a settee area outside the rooms that were poolside!
