Is it cheaper to stay in Minneapolis or St Paul?

Hi would be grateful for any advice on whether its cheaper to stat in St Paul or Minneapolis in the downtown areas. I will be in the area of for 2 and a half days ( no car) and will use the light rail to get around. As both cities look interesting, would be happy to stay where its cheaper. Thank you

What are your dates for your stay in the Twin Cities? The hotels rates usually are in tandem with events / concerts / conventions that are in town. If it's an off weekend with not much activity, you could score a bargain.

I think either place is a good option especially since you are here for a limited amount of time. You will be able to walk to restaurants and things to do in both downtown areas and not have a car. There is a lot of free music throughout the Twin Cities during the summer months. It just depends on when you're going to be here. I'd go with checking the rates in both downtown areas and pick a rate/hotel that suits you.

The people in the last couple of posts wasn't commenting towards you. Other people are allowed to give their opinion. You only have 9 posts and most of them are telling people they are wrong.

FYI you wrote a review of the Hilton Garden Inn in Minneapolis. The HGI is not a motel, nor is it in Arden Hills.

Dates haven't been announced yet, but the 3rd weekend in June is usually when the gay pride festival is going on in Loring Park and downtown Minneapolis. It's one of the biggest pride festivals in the country (400000 people attended last year's) so I would expect hotel prices in downtown Minneapolis to spike around then. If you can adjust your trip, I would maybe do so, otherwise St Paul hotels will probably be a little cheaper and quieter.

Very good point.

Downtown will be busy.
