Our family and friends had the opportunity to spend the weekend of June 22 at the hotel when we met from 4 different countries to attend the wedding of my daughter. We booked 75 rooms for the destination wedding and everything was perfect. The rooms were comfortable, the service excellent and the food magnificent. Everything about this hotel it outstanding but the one amenity that will always be in the forefront is the concierge. Stephen stopped at nothing to ensure his guests were properly cared for. Thanks to Stephen, we have found a new home in the Twin Cities.

We stayed in the city to see Carole Martin (one of our absolute faves!) at the Artists' Quarter jazz club (about 3 blocks away), and couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The on site restaurant was spectacular, and the adjoining bar was small but very unique - lots of mirrors and tall ceilings.

The rooms were also smallish, as you might expect from an older hotel, but wonderfully appointed throughout.

We're planning another trip in October, and you'll find us back at the Saint Paul!

We enjoyed our 4night stay in St. Paul hotel until the last evening.
We left for the baseball game at 6pm and I called for turn down service. Upon returning at 10:30pm my husband noticed that someone had STOLEN his pain medication. They went into his shaving kit and took the entire bottle! It was a terrible way to end an other wise enjoyable time. So besides money and jewels, watch for your medications.

The hotel said they would get security on the detail but the next day we never heard from anyone. I thought it was very poorly handled.
They said they would help to find a doctor to replace stolen pills but nothing... we were on our own. We called the St. Paul police to report the stolen pills.

Walgreens told us that pills are often stolen from hotels (not just this one) so BEWARE!

Loved this hotel! You can't beat the location and the staff is excellent. As another member mentioned, "midwestern friendly" is different from other places. They really are kind, not just faking it for their day job. The conceirge can reserve transportation in their towncar or passenger van to local sites and the drivers are chatty and nice. The cars are complimentary within a certain radius (tip the driver) and a nominal fee for outer areas.

I had take away from the cafe downstairs for breakfast because I didn't want to sit in the restaurant alone and my muffins and coffee were brought out quickly with a smile. They did have to double check if they could make a latte but it was done well when I got it. The food at The Grill on the main level was average. I was surprised as a local recommended it to us. It seems to be popular for happy hour as well. We were able to take the remainder of our bottle of wine upstairs with us after dinner, which was nice.

Pazzaluna, across the street from the hotel, is excellent and serves late in the bar. We also liked Fhima, at Wabasha and Sixth, five minutes walking from the hotel.

We stayed two nights over Easter weekend, and upgraded to the Ambassador Suite. We were in town for a wedding, so we didn't get to spend a lot of time in the hotel, which was too bad. The bed and shower were wonderful, the view was very nice, and having classical music on the Bose system added to the feeling of being pampered. We didn't eat in the Grill, but I wish we had tried it. We would have liked to spend a few more minutes by the fireplace in the lobby as well. The staff was friendly and responsive.
Two things to be aware of: 1) there is no coffee maker in the room! According another review you can request one, but we didn't. However, husband was able to purchase coffee and pastry in the lobby, so that was ok. 2) It's $18/day to self-park in the garage. If you do, park on "E" level, which is where the walkway to the hotel is (if you do this you'll have to navigate some stairs w/ your luggage). Also, we tried to leave early one morning and there was no attendant in the booth so we had to call to have someone come let us out. If you have an early flight, make sure you can get out of the garage! But everyone was friendly and helpful, just perhaps a tad disorganized re: the garage and parking. I suppose the solution is to use valet parking, but we didn't want to wait for the car.

We stayed 3 nights, 1/19-1/22/07 and had an excellent weekend. We had initially booked their rack room and found that disappointing, so we upgraded to a Landmark King room - very nice and well worth the upgrade - more comfortable bed, much better view (corner room with view of the city and the park - room 1026), nicer radio (Bose), and a little bigger. The staff are fabulous, from check in to concierge (thanks, Ana) to room service to valet parking to housekeeping. We got the "romance" package for one night and the "snuggle up" package for another and both were nice additions. Only had a couple snags, e.g. the "wine and cheese" basket had very little cheese, so we called the kitchen to see if we could get something more and they brought us a nice cheese plate without hassle or extra charge. Unlimitied in room movies were included with one package and they ended up on our bill in error which was fixed right away when I pointed out the error. We'd definitely stay there again, had a great time. Try the escargot at the restaurant. If you're going to the Ordway, stay here - you can't beat a 2 minute walk to your hotel after the show.
