While the room itself was clean, the hallway, elevator, entrance area, and fitness room all needed to be vacuumed/cleaned. It made for a bad first impression. We were also told the bar would be open until 11:00. It closed at 10, but we came back early so we wouldn't drink and drive. This was disappointing, but I think it was...

Thank you for staying with us during our construction phase. As you can see we have recently opened our bar and restaurant and are still working through some things. Next time there is a game night you can be assured we will be open in the bar until 11.

This hotel made our weekend a very good experience. Close to downtown activities and they have a shuttle service. Staff was very professional and hometown friendly, hotel clean and shuttle rides were very helpful. Only complaint was the bed...not as comfotable as I would have expected.

It is very difficult to find the entrance to the hotel due to a lack of clear signage. The internet was very slow. The room was comfortable, the bed as well. Overall, it was a nice stay for the price of the room.

The hotel was very comfortable and the staff very friendly. It was also a convenient location for our visit to the St. Paul Curling Club. We will stay there again on upcoming trips and will recommend it to our family and friends.

Overall not a bad stay considering the construction was still ongoing. The room was good and hotel was quiet. Breakfast was terrible; hopefully, it will improve post construction. Location was excellent. Many good attractions within walking distance or light rail distance with light rail station close by. Downtown free shuttle is a plus. The staff and service quality were just...

Booked this hotel, as it was close to Xcel Energy Center for a concert we were attending. They were very busy when we arrived, but the manager took time to help us get a parking spot. They had a complimentary shuttle service to the concert and back afterwards. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable.

Excellent hotel located right next to Capitol. Our room had a breath taking view of beautiful Basilica of St Josephat. Bonus is the free shuttle to local attractions & restaurants. Great location to explore all of St Paul.
