We used Costco travel to book this hotel and we were very pleased with our accommodations and the value we received. The hotel decor is very cool (old train station feel) and the morning breakfast was excellent!

I felt this hotel was way over priced for what you get. The bar and shop were expensive too. The pool hours were ludicrous, the tub didn't drain in our room and the whirlpool jets didn't work. I was also bitten by a spider while sleeping in our room. I will never stay here again

I discovered this place while on a road trip in 1996. It is a charming place built into an old railroad facility. I've returned to St. Paul twice since, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else unless Bandana Square was completely booked!

Very much over priced for what you got. Old and not the cleanest hotel that I have ever been in. Staff on phone, rude, little space for breakfast most mornings. Parking not convenient for older folks nor lack of elevator.

I was surprised to find that the hotel is built in an old Locomotive Warehouse. Rooms overlook the outside and inside. Original beams still in place adds a rustic charm. Staff was friendly, room very clean, comfy bed, good breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

Room was spacious. Hotel very clean. Staff very helpful. Also had a shuttle which was nice. Had to book a room at the last minute and did not have time to critically look at what the hotel offered. I was very pleased. Area is away from things but very nice and safe.

This hotel was very clean, the staff were friendly, and the setting of the old railway station added extra charm. There is an old train engine out front and it was very close to a multitude of entertainment and dining locations.

Stayed here with Priceline to go to a concert at the Xcel. Was a nice place but we didn't get to take advantage of any amenities. One downside was not able to control the temp or run a fan even in the room. We just turned the bathroom fan on for white noise.

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.
