“Bandana Square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

See previous comment square... The property has great potential but needs a few little maintenance issues handled, some management improvements and maybe employee training I could really envision how nice it would be during the winter with the huge ceiling and indoor swimming pool.

I stayed for two nights and had a wonderful experience. All the staff was helpful and the "market", it´s a great asset,if you want/need something last minute. The breakfast is very complete and i´ll call it a full and not a continental breakfast. The property has its own magic that transport you to an old railroad station, great shuttle service. Overall highly recomendable

I stayed at this property, as it hosted the room block for my friend's wedding. The staff was very accommodating, especially the shuttle driver, Preston. He stayed past his schedule shift to pick up guests at the near by reception site. Thank you for a wonderful weekend and for being a friendly 'safe-ride' home!

Spent one night at this hotel --- was clean, nice pool area, quiet, decent continental breakfast. Convenient location to Como Park. I would recommend the hotel. Was a bit pricey but we needed to be in this area of St Paul.

Normally wary of the quality in many Best Western Hotels BUT this one exceeded expectations. A hotel inside an old rail maintenance building is very well done and a complement to the neighborhood.
Close to State Fairgrounds, and business parks on Energy Drive. Rooms are quiet and well kept.

Room Tip: Hint- if you like more light in your room ask for outside window- other rooms face indoor pool. A l...

We recently spent one night at the hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very nicely decorated and very clean. The room we had was very large with new furnishing. It was also very quite for sleeping. The bathroom was cleaning but the color scheme shows that is is aged.

From the moment we got there until we checked out the service was excellent. It was a unique style hotel in an old train station with tracks running through the floor; loved it! The value was great and overall highly recommend it!
