Disappointed

Stuffy, no fan, no exterior windows, no temperature control. Had to leave noisey bathroom fan on all night. Breakfast was 'uninspired' at best.

Too expensive for what offers

The hotel is a maze inside. To find your room is terrible as the signs are not clear and the staff not very helpful. Too expensive for what really is....will not return.

AvrAGE ACOMODATIONS

This hotel was average accommodations for the price. The bathroom was very small. I realize we did not request a ADA room but I was surprised by the small size. Good TV and continental breakfast.

Cleaned my room of all my personal Items

I returned to my room to find that it had been serviced so well that all of my personal items and food from the refrigerator were gone. When I went to the front desk I was told the manager was not there and that they could not do anything until he got there the next morning. I called the manager, Troy Angerhofer, and he set up a meeting time with me at 6:45 the next morning. When he finally arrived at 8:00 the next morning he told me there was nothing he could do and openly said that he did not believe my claims of my items being stolen from my room. He offered me candy as a compensation to the items taken from my room. I will not be going back to this Hotel nor will I ever recommend it to anyone.

Stat High School Hockey 2014

Hotel was under a lot of construction but, that was OK and it did not get in the way of anything nor was there any issue with construction noise. Should look very nice when completed. Room sizes were very nice with plenty of room for family of 4+. Shower curtains would not stay closed in showers.....could use a better shower curtain or pole or something.....water was all over the shower floor. had a nice bar/lounge area however, they normally close at 9 or 9:30 which for a Friday/Saturday seems a little too early. may want to consider later hours on Fri./Saturday. Parking was easy with plenty of parking space and easy access. Close to Snelling avenue for dinner options and State Fair if season was appropriate....that is a plus. Continental breakfast area was very nice and food choices and food was excellent. Pool area is more than adequate however, the water in pool was a little cold. Overall I recommend this hotel and will gladly stay at it again.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Close/short drive of 4 miles to XCel Energy Center right down I-94 to 5th street, only a couple miles to the State Fair, and general eating options to the west to Snelling Avenue.

A fun hotel, former train station

This hotel used to be a train station. They've kept a lot of the interior intact. They have a very nice breakfast in one atrium, but it ends early so you should be very careful to not be late---they take the food away exactly on time. The other atrium has a pool and the usual. There is also free popcorn in the lobby. The rooms are larger than normal. The location is convenient to highways but there's nothing within walking distance. In the hallways there can be noise from children playing in the pool area but not in the rooms---the walls are solid. This is a very fun experience.

Great hotel for the night

Very convenient to our banquet. The staff was nice, the amenities were great, fridge in room. Very nice room. Would have been a GREAT experience all around if there would have been more parking & an elevator. Would have been very disappointed if we had more luggage to haul up the stairs.

St Paul hideaway

Although five minutes farther away from the Midway than others it is a MUCH better value in the price range. Clean quiet safe and excellent homemade oatmeal.
