“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

We had a great stay at Hotel 340. It has a lot of old school charm with some morden updates. Check-in and out was very easy, parking across the street with skyway access. That is the biggest reason we picked this place was skyway access. Easy walk to Excel center and local eating spots. Room was a little on the small size but perfect for a couple looking to relax. Bathroom was small but usable and seperate large steam shower was awesome. Bed and pillows lead to a great nights sleep. The building is old but has a lot of history and character. The room we had could use a fresh coat of paint but not a big deal to us. They did have a continental breakfest but we did not try it. It was a great value for the price. We will be back again!

We got last minute reservations to stay at Hotel 340 and it was a great experience. Andy who checked us in was very nice. The lobby of the hotel is grand. The rooms are all on the upper floors and it appears the building was retrofitted to accommodate the rooms. The hall carpet is a little worn but no big deal. The room we had (2 bed/2 bath suite) was super for the price. We used the two bathrooms when the four of us were getting ready to head out to SantaCon - who would have thought something like that would come in so handy at a hotel.

The rooms are nice - hard wood floors, a king bed and regular bed that face each other across the room, a really nice kitchenette, and the bathrooms were sparkling. The beds were really comfortable. The location is great too - just a couple blocks from the river, ordway, lowertown, etc.

We didn't have too much interaction with staff but Andy was great at checking us in - really friendly and personable. Someone else checked us out and he was great too. We met a third person coming in from the pub crawl but I don't really remember too much about that so can't comment. :-)

What I liked best about this hotel is that it isn't a chain. If you want the sameness that a chain can give you - head over to the holiday inn. If you want something a little more unique that's not the cookie cutter experience, give Hotel 340 a try.

Room Tip: Choose a 2 bath suite. Who would have thought that we would have used both bathrooms so much but it...

I love the 340! It is such a gem! The room I stayed in had an incredible view of the State's Capital and the view of the City, lit up at night, was breathtaking. The bed was one of the most comportable I have slept in. The staff were so helpful and polite. They gave marvelous suggestions of what to do in and around St. Paul. This is definitely my favorite hotel in the Twin Cities!

This hotel is under foreclosure and has the worst service I have ever had. We arrived at 7:30 and there was nobody at the front desk for 45 min! There was a tel at the desk to call when the person was gone which just rang the front desk when you called!! We got fed up and went over to the crowne plaza instead and once they heard about our poor experience at 340 the crowne plaza staff gave us a reduced rate and riverside view out of pity, probably.

Horrible experience.

When you walk through the doors of Hotel 340 you know you are someplace special. the grand lobby is your first hint that this is a special place.

The staff are unbelievable helpfully and make you feel like you are really a guest.

You can't beat the price for a downtown hotel. Yes some of the rooms are small, but for $10.00 more you can upgrade to a queen suite. Worth the money.

One of the quietest hotels I have ever been in.
