If you like historic buildings that resonate with a spooky past yet offer the amenities of a modern hotel, yo will love Hotel 340.
The lobby is dark and cozy, especially the front desk. Walk into the main seating area of the lobby and you can enjoy a large and impressive fireplace and beautiful columns and hight ceilings.
We were unexpectedly upgraded to a suite which made our stay super nice. Our bright large room offered a sitting area and two separate bathrooms...which was great since we had to get ready for a wedding so there was not fighting over the mirror and the sink. There was also a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. One thing seriously missing, however, was a wardrobe long enough to hang a regular length dress or pair of pants in. Also, it would be smart o provide suitcase racks so one does not have to lug their suitcase on top of the nice wood dresser and risk scratching it.
The front desk staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The gratis continental breakfast was adequate and welcome. Friends staying in the nearby St Paul Hotel had to go out to get something to eat or even a cup of coffee.
Bus 54 starts at the airport and practically stops in front of Hotel 340 making a taxi unnecessary and we took that form of transportation both ways. At a $1.75, it was efficient and cheap and reliable.
Thanks Hotel 340 for helping us get acquainted with St Paul, Minnesota.
