“Stayed while in town for conference”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

It was a good location to walk down to the River Centre where the conference was held. It is a unique building right in the heart of downtown. Breakfast was good. The challenges were small like no juice one day, no napkins on another. The staff went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable.

Hotel employees were very friendly and the rooms looked great. Beds were very comfy and they even provided a small fridge, robes, towels, and glassware. Very impressed with everything except price. Would definitely go back again and definitely recommend.

340 is a distinctive piece of dowdy old St Paul, and has a sense of history and character. Staff was all friendly and competent and everything was clean. My room looked out on an air shaft, with blinds that did not open easily even if one would have wanted them to, which one wouldn't since one would just be looking at a grimy wall and rooftop. Location is one block from a light rail station to/from Minneapolis, but otherwise location is a little too quiet, with few restaurants or other activity within a few blocks. Convention center and arena about six blocks walk. On the other hand my work colleague had a room which looked out over the city and she had a much more positive impression than I did, because of the light and view. One's experience must vary with the type of room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, or you may get one with windows looking out on an airshaft.

This hotel is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. The lobby is very cozy, with comfortable seating and fireplace plus a grand piano. The staff there were very helpful. James was our concierge and he made our stay very nice...

I stayed here for a business trip in May, as per a recommendation from a St. Paul local. It was great to get out of the corporate hotel chains and see something different. My room was spacious with a small kitchenette and a desk, so I could get some work done. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: As for upgrade if it's a slow week.

The Hotel 340 of Saint Paul, MN is a truly unique property. The classic architecture of this old building will have you in awe and then the incredible staff will make you even happier that you chose this as your vacation destination! Trevor, James and Ned were all very accommodating, helpful, friendly, and went above and beyond what you would expect from any staff members. The room was beautiful as well with the wooden floors, marble steps, and amazing kitchenette area. Hotel 340 has managed to keep the "old world" feel to the decor but also include the modern amenities like an iHome/Bluetooth alarm clock and a huge LED television. They did not detract from the room at all but seemed to blend in...the furniture and bedding choices were well thought out and comfortable, too. There are many things to do in the area as well and many of those things are within walking distance. We were very happy that we chose Hotel 340 and will be telling all for our friends about this "hidden" gem also!

Stayed one night and really enjoyed our room once we got them corrected as much as they could. We had reserved the Jacuzzi suite for our newly wed kids and there was a mix up and it wasn't available, kinda a disappointment. But they did all they could to make it all good. Really cool lobby and classic old building, and rooms very nice. Great staff.

Room Tip: Get the bigger rooms, the basic ones are tiny, but nice.
