The hotel staff is wonderful, the outside is not what it seems until you walk inside the hotel and it was overwhelming. It was beautiful the way the layout is. Where the breakfast is located in an old train is pretty cool but kind of tight when a lot of people try to be in there. The breakfast was alright,... More

Spent last night (Thursday) and have mixed feelings. Some things were really neat, such as the building's history/architecture, the pool was clean and well maintained, and the morning staff were very friendly and available. Unfortunately some things were not good. The attendant couldn't be found after we checked in and discovered our room keys didn't work (she had been busy... More

The rail road history part with a old steam engine on display out front was quite nice for a my little boys. Price was quite good. Only down... More

This hotel is nice and very historical. The architecture is very cool. This building was used to paint trains back in the day, and the tracks are still on the floor. Rooms are modern and comfortable. The pool is nice and the staff is awesome, we enjoyed our stay here.

I had 4 horrible experiences with front desk staff. Not one --- FOUR! ALL from different staff members too. So it's not just one person. When I first booked, the first person booked the wrong dates. Another woman called to confirm the dates and when I did and had further questions since they got the dates wrong, she interrupted me,... More

Staff very kind to elderly & young guests; loved the sauna and hot tub; smallish pool not exceeding chemicals; excellent free breakfast (yogurt machine, make your own waffle/pancakes, eggs, sausages, fruit, juice, rolls, oatmeal, toast). Extremely gracious staff; sturdy beds, great sheets. Quiet, safe neighborhood, EASY parking. Good place for wheelchairs & strollers - floors poured concrete.

They have brought the past back to life with this one. Historic train out front was fascinating. Excellent breakfast. Sauna was a great start to the morning. Quiet neighborhood. Very pleasant staff. Will stay here again.

This place has great décor and history! Nice fitness center. The pool was also nice, my grandson loved it! It is located in a very convenient area, minutes from the Mall of America and also close to downtown Minneapolis.

We got there on a Friday with our kids and grandkids. That night about 10:30, we were walking to our rooms. Our 6 year old grandson ran down the hall...no noise, just running. A lady in the hall stops us and says to keep our children quiet, because they are doing a sleep study. What??? Our room has mold and... More

We had a great, comfortable stay. Our grandson had a great time visiting us and the pool was great for him. We have stayed may times here and always enjoyed our stays.
