We loved the historic remnants of the train Depot. Rooms are very clean and updated. Linens very nice. Location is wonderful. Breakfast was very good as well. Rooms were quiet I cant say enough good things about the hotel.

The Wifi and Breakfast were great. We will be back at the property. We like the fact that it is a historic hotel. Were stayed on business and the property is very suited with amenities for the business traveler

The hotel is in a beautifully repurposed historic building with interesting room layouts and great service. We had a major issue with the temperature in the room. The room did not have individualized temperature control. Instead it was controlled from the front desk on some kind of a computerized system. Every day for five days I called and asked that...

I stayed at this hotel due to its close proximity to Kaplan Professional School. Nothing stood out as exceptional. One front desk staff person knew nothing about Kaplan even though it is directly behind the building. She told me it was a mile away. The guest room, especially the bathroom could use an upgrade. I was pleased to see a... More

Great Place to stay.... request to have your room turned down if you do not like it warm!! You cannot control the temp from your room.... But if you want to have an awesome time go meet Helen in the bar... SHE IS FANTASTIC!!! Super friendly... super helpful and a GREAT bartender!!! Adds to the stay that much more!!!

My son attends college in St Paul, so we have been up there many times. We originally liked the Best Western - Bandana Square hotel because it's not as expensive as downtown and the location makes for easy access to his college and various places to visit. This visit was very different than past experiences. First, the wifi never worked... More

Briefly, I was not impressed with the facility. For $150+ a night, I expected to not have to worry much about my stay. So let me give you a little glimpse into the 14.5hours I spent at your hotel... my first room the toilet was leaking everywhere, I shut the valve off myself to save you the mess of a... More

This hotel needs work and some help. We've stayed here often. They didn't honor my request for the style of room I wanted. The room was clean...but there was snack bags behind the nightstands. The amenities weren't replenished. Breakfast is good - as long as you get there when there is some. They don't keep it up very well. They... More

See report - we were so pleased with the hotel and the décor and that the historic features were so well used. The breakfast serving area was quite small and crowded, but charming, as well as the hotel as a whole. It was very quiet and restful The purpose of our trip was to participate in the National Senior Games... More

We were here with the Hmong Festival crowd so I did not mind the amount of noise and children in the pool. However, if you are looking for a quiet getaway, do not book during the week of July 4th. My room was nice and clean, bed was comfortable. The only issue I had was that the TV and microwave... More
