We stayed at the Crowne Plaza over a weekend while attending a wedding. The staff was friendly and our check-in went smoothly.
Our room had been remodeled and was nice, but maybe a little small. The king bed did not leave much room for sitting at the desk.
The bathroom was nice and well lit. There was even a lighted side magnifying mirror. The shower did not have anywhere to set the soap or hair products, which was strange. It was also a newer design with just a short glass wall separating it from the rest of the bathroom and no door. That let a lot of water escape.
The bed was comfortable and there were several pillows from which to choose. There was no bedspread. Maybe still to come?
The hotel is located on the river and there are some nice walking paths. It was a short walk to the St Paul Farmer's market. We didn't notice a lot of shops within walking distance, but the Science Museum was next door.
The hotel had a restaurant with a breakfast buffet. Omelets are made to order, there was fresh fruit along with the usual buffet choices. The separate pub was a great lunch stop.
All in all, it was a nice place to stay.
