Needs more for the price tag

The only thing this hotel has going for it is the location - if you need to be near the Capitol AND need parking that won't set you back (free parking) then this place is it. I think an update of the rooms is needed - with particular emphasis on the beds. Can forgive and overlook most things - but beds are one of those things that a hotel should invest in!

Stayed while attending a wedding

Stayed at this hotel this past weekend while attending a wedding. Not bad, but for the price paid it should have been much better. Staff did their jobs, but were not friendly.

Great location, good rooms

For the price I paid, (about a hundred a night), this was really good value for money. Everything was only ten minutes away, max, and the rooms were very good. Staff was helpful and friendly. The restaurant is so-so, and there is a lack of snack options which was annoying. But overall i would recommend this hotel.

Clean and great location

We had a great time. We went to a Wild game and we had loved that the hotel offered free transportation to and from. We went to Mall Of America and it was very easy to navigate to and from hotel. It was nice to have a pool, but the pool area was kinda cold. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very nice. The lady cleaning our room was very nice and helpful! Hotel bar got our drinks mixed up. Overall I would recommend this hotel to others.

Weekend in St. Paul

The hotel is easy to get to and convenient to downtown to the Grand Ave. area. Though it exhibits some wear, the hotel and rooms were clean and the towels ample and fluffy. The staff was freindly and helpful.

Great place to stay for an event at the xcel center

Very friendly staff. Nice clean room with comfortable beds. Love the free parking compared to the hotels downtown. The shuttle service before and after the concert was wonderful. I will stay there again and will recommend it to others.
