The single biggest problem are the trains. They sound whistles at local crossings regardless of the hour, so we were awakened at 1:00 AM and 6:00 AM. Since our room was only about a hundred feet from the tracks, there's no way to say it except that it's loud.
Hotel is reasonably nice, albeit basic. Breakfast was fine. The hallway carpet was not clean, but then we didn't spend much time out there. However, I check into hotels to sleep, and that is a big problem here.
Price was a huge disappointment, high (no discounts) because of a local college function. The value for $130 was terrible, but there wasn't much choice.
Bottom line: Shame on the hotel owners for building practically on top of a train track that's been there since the Civil War. It feels disrespectful of guests. My advice? Stay somewhere else, in Saint Paul if you have to.
