Convienient place to stay if your planning a trip to the excel for an event. Rooms are clean, parking is in back for $15 & worth it. Walking distance to almost anything you need. Elevators are painfully slow Pool is tiny

A Friend has asked me to write this, and he wanted to say that this hotel was a wonderful experience. Great staff, breakfast, room service, and convenience of being not too far from the Excel Energy Center. Although there may have been a few rowdy individuals, or vagrants outside the hotel, that isn't for the hotel to blame. I have...

We booked the room as we were attending a concert on March 17th. St. Patrick's day in St. Paul. It was probably the most action the city sees all year so the place was hoppin'--the adjoining restaurant is the Liffey an irish bar.

Clearly the most convenient hotel when planning a trip to the Xcel Energy Center. Has full service bar and room was clean and comfortable. Parking ramp was a little extra. This hotel is often completely booked during Minnesota Wild home games so it is a good idea to book early if possible.
