We stayed at this Holiday Inn simply for location. We attended a Minnesota Wild hockey game and were able to walk directly across the street to the Xcel Energy Center. It was perfect! The staff was friendly, room was very clean and spacious. We enjoyed our night very much. There are lots of cute little restaurants & pubs nearby for dining.

Another nice perk of staying there, we received a discounted rate for booking online (at their site) and chosing to not have a refundable room. Be aware that they do charge you for parking ($15/day) at the end of your stay.

Front desk employees seemed aloof when noticing our travel agency, we had pre-paid for our room. Room was fine, not elaborate but clean and functional. The fan in the bathroom had no switch to turn it off and it was very noisey. The surprise came at check-out when a bill was slipped under the door for $60.00 parking. It was never mentioned at check-in or at the time of reservation that there was a fee for parking. The hotel is convienently located, but it would have been nice to know up front about the parking.

The hotel staff was very friendly. The room was so clean. We are Priority Club Members so we were on the top floor over looking the St Paul Cathedral. It was a beautiful sight. We parked the car at the hotel lot and walked to the Ordway Theater, dinner at the wonderful Downtowner Woodfire Grill. and to the Children's Theater to meet our granddaughter.
I would recommend this hotel and will stay there again.

We were unable to get the heat to work in our room. It was so cold we could not take our heavy coats, scarves and hats off! They sent someone up to try to fix the heat but by midnight they were unable to. At this point they told us the hotel was sold out and they would have to move us to another one. Unfortunately there was not another decent hotel that had a vacancy, the front desk girl then decided that they DID have a room to move us into. We finally were able to get to sleep by about 2AM.
The rest of the stay was fine.

Stayed: January 2008

We were at the hotel for 8 nights in January at US Figure Skating Championships. Joined Holiday Inn Priority Club (free) prior to reservations to get Priority Club room. Nice, good sized, room on 5th floor facing the River. Bathroom a little small, but everything very clean. Had trouble with heating unit, so hotel replaced it (twice). Mtce guys told us hotel had recently refurbished rooms with new beds, linens, carpet, etc. Very comfortable beds with 4 good pillows each. Hotel across intersection from Excel Center, which was great because outside temp -17F with windchill of -35F. Hotel staff very good. Gave us better driving directions to hotel than website. Asked for some extra towels first day and got more every day after that w/o asking. Adjacent parking ramp not cheap, but convenient. Number of restaurants and pub style bars within couple of blocks. Didn't try Liffy's, but others said it's very good. Have to agree with other posters that doors slam, people talking in hall, and traffic noise is noticeable, but didn't seem worse than other downtown hotels like this. We also carry a small 10 inch box fan and use it at night to muffle outside noises.
