The attached restaurant was great. rooms comfortable.

Great location for going to concert at xcel center-just across the street. Nice hotel- parking ramp attached. Would stay here again

Clean rooms and property. Not many restaurants available during the week within walking distance (and no breakfast available nearby at all)

Across the street from nightlife and sporting events. Kind of pricey.

Location was great!

Room smelled like it had been a smokers room at some point.

Location to the Xcel Energy Center. Didn't like that the bar was closed for updates.

I resented that although the room was selected based on 4 guests, after selecting the room, it became apparent that each guest beyond 2 were an additional $10 each. This should have been clearer at the outset.

Liked how close to the Excel. Nice rooms very comfortable. It was so cold when I was there so that part was unpleasant. But overall very nice to stay there.

The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. I awoke with a bad back ache that lasted all day. They need new/better mattresses.

We loved the free shuttle.... but hate having to add the cost for parking.

My only issue was you could hear everything in the hall. Thankfully everyone settled in to their rooms relatively early or it could have been a long night!

The property makes it very difficult to pay cash for your room, you must be able to put the entire amount on a credit card to hold the room for the night and then you can pay cash the next day at check out. This makes it very difficult for people who do not use credit cards. There was not any hot water in our room in the morning for showers. The property did remedy this by letting us shower in a different room. This did take quite some time, at least an hour to get it situated. This delayed us leaving the room by about 20 minutes. Check out time was at noon, at 10 after thete was a knock at the door telling us we would have to leave immeduately. We were just packing up. I told the gentleman what our delay was and he did remeber that we had an issue with the hot water and was nice and told us we could take our time. There was also a $15.00 charge for parking. The room rate was already inflated due to the event going on, then to have to pay an additional fee for parking was very exorbitant. Overall I'm not sure that I would stay at this particular property again!

A great place to stay. Very clean and friendly service.

The hotel was clean, in great condition, and conveniently located to the venue I needed to be at. Great experience.

Nice updated room. Clean, quiet. Tv and coffee. Excellent location, close to restaurants, bars, concert arena. Will definitely stay again when in St. Paul.

It was perfect! This hotel is acoss the street from the xcel energy center. It was GREAT!!! My friends and I also wanted to have options for dining. We had several options in walking distance.

My room was right next to the elevator. Noisy conversations in the hall woke me up several times in the night,

Hi Lisa, We apologize that there was confusion regarding cost during your stay and wish we could do more to directly address your concern; but your booking and payment were done through Orbitz, and we aren't able to alter that site. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and we trust that your experience at the hotel itself was pleasant. We do sincerely hope to welcome you back again regardless of which website the booking is done through.
