Clearly have a back up plan before staying here I booked a suite because we have two set of twins to only find out that they completely changed my reservation with no explanation phone call or anything Manger didn’t seem to care much and no one tried to fix the situation

I book my reservation well in advance It was booked September 2021 I hope I never have to book here again I didn’t even want to give it a star Please have a back up plan!

Audrey Geissinger

I think if no one has ever stayed here when it was the Sheraton then one would think this was a nice hotel Ever since it switched to Marriott this place has disappointed This time no cold water for a shower, no room service even though they advertise as such, room wasn’t ready at 3pm and my door was damaged and had to be repaired as it wouldn’t shut

The staff really tried and were pleasant The only reason I stayed here again was because of business I had in town I will absolutely not stay here again

This is such a beautiful place! We stayed here for my husband’s birthday Loved the fact that it isn’t the average hotel The rooms are very charming and the antique furniture and art was all lovely

Really easy to take a walk along Summit and get to nearby restaurants! I wish we had stayed longer We were up on the third floor–based on the photos we thought the room would be a bit smaller/cozier but it ended up being very spacious!

Mary Jo Bartels

Such a delight! Did not want to leave this beautiful place!We booked the master suite and just Wow! So many amazing spaces to enjoy The quality of the home, the wood, the windows and light, the furnishings, fireplaces, library, parlor Such a grand place to savor sweet musings of lives and years gone by

Will definitely come back but for a longer stay! And I plan up research the story of the family who first lived here and the evolution since those early daysThank you for making this indulgence available for us to enjoy!!

Jenny Mena

We could not have had a better stay This boutique hotel was even more beautiful than it appeared on the 3-D tour online My husband found it in a Google search

We were looking for a space for hair and makeup artists to come in to get my bridal party ready for the big day that could turn into a honey moon suite at the end We booked room 301 It looked exactly like the virtual tour accept it was more polished, more beautiful, more clean The floors and all the pictures and floor boards were pristine Their cleaning staff are amazing Since I hosted four bridesmaids, a personal attendant, three flower girls, and the two hair & makeup artists the morning of, I emailed the day before to request a clean, fresh sheets, and towels They came in after we left for the church and left everything looking like newI was worried in the restored building that the air conditioning may be unreliable but it was cool throughout the suite and stayed Cool in every room The bedroom closet was large enough to air out my cathedral length dress train during our stay The gorgeous tub was perfect for a post-wedding soak The full kitchen and fridge was ideal for the Lund’s catering we brought in for breakfast and lunch and kept everything cool and Fresh so we were able to have chilled bubbly when we returned back and cold OJ in the morning as well as midnight snacks without ever having to leave the room After a busy day, we were slow getting packed up to leave in the morning of checkout We emailed the desk from bed for a checkout extension and they responded with a two hour extension of our code without issue We had such an amazing experience we can’t wait for a reason to go back My husband even made a Facebook live video of the room before we left he was so happy with it Thank you, Davidson, for such an AMAZING stay You helped make our wedding weekend so marvelous Keep up the good work

Friendly, helpful staff (thank you Shay for the great service and caring smile) Valet and shuttle driver were extra perks! Hot breakfast provided a variety of options (son is gluten free) but odd no brown sugar for the oatmeal Classy yet cozy room with well supplied kitchen

Best of all, first time we’ve stayed in the Twin Cities without waking to sirens or traffic noise (Several were deployed, too)

Stephen Ellis

Stayed here 4 nights with my wife and kids Started with the air conditioner not working in the room We notified them multiple times they gave us a fan

Average room temp was 75-80 degrees Didn’t want to make a big deal because the said the we fixing it By yesterday we’re like pack all our kids up and goto another hotel? We just toughed it out The only good thing about this place is the pool Breakfast was sub par Good thing hopes is next door I mentioned again about the room air and their reply “Said did we tell them” Unreal! You gave me the fan So she comped us the valet parking We didn’t even use valet parking but one night because when we got back the place was surrounded by police cars Been here before a year ago and it is definitely not the same Hit or miss here

Nic Dunseith

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 months while we worked in St Paul The staff here are amazing

The hotel was well kept and well run Extra mention for Shay who made sure we had a room that was in a good location for working night shift and Luke who brush our car off when we didn’t have a snow brush and had a flight to catch the next day I cannot say enough about all of the wonderful people who made our stay amazing I wish I could give this a rating higher than 5 stars Thank you to everyone for going above and beyond – kitchen staff, housekeeping and maintenance, we are so grateful!

The lobby is nice Valet parking was convenient The morning we left, there were dozens of other people leaving too and waiting for valet

The desk staff and valet people were really hustling and did a good job getting lots of cars quicklyThe room was not great There was no mattress pad on the bedjust a fitted sheet directly on the mattress The room was not cleaned well There was dried mascara on the sink leftover from a previous guest The door handles and high touch surfaces had residue and marks showing that they clearly take no time to wipe down or properly clean such areas The shower was not cleanTheir saving grace is that they are right across the street from the excel center, which is convenient for attending events However, it may be worth it to stay elsewhere in a cleaner room and take an Uber or pay for event parking instead!

Bethany Rose Larson

We were in town for a difficult family trip (saying goodbye to a loved one), so for us, this place was a haven of much-needed rest It’s been recently remodeled and has a new feel, even though you can tell by the ceilings that the building has old bones The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast room packed but kept up with, and most memorable were the staff, who were kind and helpful

The only thing I wish I would have known about beforehand was that there was a parking lot *right* behind the hotel, which could have saved us the $35 valet fee (though the valet guys were great) We literally walked into our room, opened the windows, and looked down onto the park-and-pay parking lot It would have been a short walk up a hill and around a corner with our suitcases, definitely worth the $35 plus tips! Oh well! If we’d been having a sight-seeing trip, it would have been a perfect location for downtown events and the riverwalk Another time, perhaps!

Tara Miller

We went to a Minnesota Wild game, and love the convenience and location of the hotel to the Xcel Energy You are given valet parking, so you don’t have to find a spot to park and pricing is reasonable They have breakfast in the morning from 6 to 10 am

we have stayed there a few times for games and all the experiences have been good Would reccommend

Stay here! The place was amazing The valet were superb! Room service was on point even through this pandemic Elegance, history and ambiance all wrapped into one

The business center is perfect if you need to tend to business while you’re staying here Business center was quiet with desktops and designated area for laptops, had coffee and muffins I would definitely come back

Mary Jo Bartels

Our room was impeccable and bed so comfortable! Very roomy with classic and beautiful furnishings with modern conveniences added So charming was the lobby, live plants and fresh flowers and the valet were dressed in tux tails and top hats Thrilled to stay here! Their bar and restaurant were equally divine

Thanks for a lovely time here!

Eric Palkovich

Extremely convenient and cool locationThe Hotel has a lot of history behind it, but the rooms weren’t worth the price (I do understand the price compared to location, etc) The room was immaculately clean, though

Just not as big as we thought it’d be for what we paidThe staff were fabulous, and extremely friendly They are the primary reason why we’d returnAll in all, a very fun place to visit

Very nice luxurious feeling hotel The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms have cool lights and a nice shower AC is great! Nice view of the runway too

It was great to not have to leave the airport and go outside to access the hotel Unfortunately the TSA check point was closed to get back to the terminal so we had to take the shuttle, but it was quick and easy and in a very nice luxury van

Corey Trusty

The hotel was absolutely great in taking care of us… we got in almost 3hrs later then we were supposed too… like 2:30am… and they absolutely took care of us… from the shuttle service, to our check in… the room was clean, very spacious and very quiet even to the outside noise being by the airport The attention to detail with the little things was really good such as the lighting in the bathroom, huge shower, massive counter space, the different colored towels and the soundproof windows The few things that were missing in my very humble opinion were more places to hang towels (there was only one peg to do that); places to hang your rag in the shower

There was no place to do that at all Other than that it was a really good experience, especially with the folks who worked the graveyard shift… thank you…


I love this airport hotel I have stayed here 3 times and I have even stayed in the suite It is always clean and easy to get to from the airport via the sky bridge walkway

It has great views of the airport and you can see St Paul and downtown Minneapolis from some of the roomsMy one complaint is that during the summer the lobby can be much to warm and humid The room does take a bit to cool off also

An absolute dumpThis review is for the hotel portion onlyElevators don’t work

We have to go up and down 12 flights of stairs (twice) Stairways not marked, not lit and several floors were blocked by power tools, cords etc…The rooms are very musty and dirty Tiny sinks and toilets and rooms not stockedNobody who works for the hotel is there They have a person that sits at the front desk, but they are very quick to tell you that they don’t work there Beautiful venue, but don’t ever stay here

Stayed here for a wedding Currently no staff on premises and you get your code to get in and out of the building and roomLocation is convenient to be in downtown St

Paul Did not park a vehicle for my stayElevator was having major issues during stay Was trapped on the 12th floor in the morningNo a/c on in the main parts so the hallways/elevators were hot Room a/c worked thankfullyBathrooms had step up to enter if you have mobility issues Bed was on the firmer side Room had fridge, microwave and kureg machine

Bridget Wolff

The guy was grumpy that checked us in but another front desk person we met was nice We couldn’t use a gift card to pay for our room I booked the king room on booking

com because it was cheaper than booking with the hotel I liked the standard room better that we got the last time we stayed Our room had a kitchen, dishes, wine glasses and mini fridge with freezer We stayed for winter carnival and it was a perfect location The hotel has the top floors of the building St Paul athletic club has an awesome dry and wet sauna and really nice facilities Nice free breakfast but bring your own cup/mug since they only have disposable options They had recycling bin in the room which was a nice touch The housekeeping staff were very nice We love this hotel

Great rooms, comfortable and well appointed We upgraded and had a beautiful view of the Mississippi Daily breakfast was worth it

They have a nice lobby, hallways and parking are very industrial Service was excellent during the day One night I was treated rudely when asking for a corkscrew? Could’ve been 5 stars but the poor night service bothered me I will still go back, well worth another try

Rebecca Helfritz167

I had a wonderful stay I got into the city very early but I had breakfast which was delicious and the staff got me checked when they could I was in town for a friend’s birthday party and everyone was very accommodating

The only downside was that I attempted to print of my boarding pass for the bus and the printer would not work yet I was still charged for the internet use and copies I never actually received

Joe R

Great location on the river with exceptionally friendly staff The river views were very nice but the hotel interior was dark, very tired and in need of updating Other than the desk chair there was no other seating in the room

When I informed the staff that our room had no chair they though it was odd that there was none and told us that they would look into it We never got the chair The hotel parking garage was an adventure The ceilings in the garage were so low that they did not allow vehicles over 5’9″ to enter The lighting in the garage was terrible I felt like we were parking in a cave Next time in the area I think we will try another hotel

My family and I stopped here on our way through headed home from a week in the boundary waters Everyone was very friendly We booked late at night and showed up even later but the staff was very ready to help

Unfortunately we did not get the two double bed rooms we requested so that everyone could get their own bed but they did say they were full with a wedding and wrestling That being said It would have been really nice to know that it would not be what we requested before we got up to our roomsThat being said the 5 stars reflect the rest of our stay! My room was immaculate, the cookies were warm, the shower was so clean and refreshing, and the bed was incredibly comfortable The next morning we enjoyed a very hot and fresh breakfast on the second floor where Moe was very attentive to our coffee and needs! The coffee was fresh and hot and the bacon perfectly cooked! You could tell the staff are all hard workers!I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would like to personally thank each of the staff members we had the chance to interact with!

Matt Bozovsky

Friendly staff and great breakfast! I stayed for 2 nights in a king room The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable As mentioned in other reviews, the room was a little dated; however, nothing terrible

Parking was nice in the ramp, and the elevator opened right to the hotel lobby You do have to pay for breakfast, but there were a lot of options, and in my opinion, it was worth it I would recommend the hotel! There wasn’t a lot of traffic downtown on the weekend so that was nice as well

Rebecca Bang

First thing, great staff Every staff member we crossed paths with was pleasant and helpful Biggest kudos to Anita that checked us in

Gave info on best places to eat and gave hints on best way to navigate and get around downtown! The hotel is older as others have said and not a ton open as we thought would be Alliance Bank Center hard to get through and not a lot of restaurants open there like we thought, but still walking distance to Xcel Arena and other food options Overall room was clean, good price, restaurant in lobby was open, so overall, 5 stars because to me customer service makes or breaks it and their customer service is top notch

Mark Friedlander

I travel a lot on business, and this hotel was a wonderful surprise I often feel claustrophobic in small hotel rooms, but the rooms at this hotel are remarkably large, with 20 foot ceilings and enough floor space that other hotels might call the rooms suites The furnishings and the lobby are very nice, and the free breakfast is quite good

There is only a shower — no tub — in the bathroom, but that is the only negative that I can think of It has all the other common amenities I rate this hotel very highly

Buck M

Aside from finding the right entrance to access the parking, this place is delightful It’s the old post office, and the renovation into a hotel kept some architectural elements intact Like 20′ high ceilings in the room, 10′ wide hallways and brass elevator doors, replete with post office iconography

Very comfortable, very modern, but still personable Staff was very friendly and still professional Yes, I would stay here again

Michael Nelson-Ostrowski

We stayed one night and the room and service were great I was surprised at how tall the ceilings were and the building had quiet of bit of historical nature to it We got stuck with an interior room so it was good as the room could provide as our only views were of the interior building

The only downside (and likely the result of it being in St Paul) was the parking When coming down it seemed like there was on site parking with unlimited parking but the only thing they had was valet so that felt a bit deceitful but that could be my fault for reading The plus side is the parking ramp across the street was only $5 for our overnight

Stayed at hotel for honeymoon and it was perfect Amazing food delivered to the room from the restaurant, all staff were friendly and accommodating Everything was clean and loved the suite, the tub is large enough even my 6’5” hubby was able to comfortably relax and bathe

The common area was luxurious so it was nice to have a quiet meal in the room one night and play cards with a local friend Definitely want to go back! The rooftop bar was amazing as well!!

Emilie Christensen

I have stayed at Omni Viking Lakes a few times, and there are a some things that keep me coming back The hotel is beautiful! The Nordic Viking theme is just perfect, with subtle and tasteful nods to the Purple&Gold Vikings who’s training facility is just next door This hotel is high end while still being inviting and comfortable

Side note: If you are a MN Vikings fan, you just might end up having a drink and some great conversation with a player or coach ;)The rooms and spaces are exceptionally clean and well appointed The staff- from the front desk to the restaurant, and bar staff- have all been so kind, professional, and welcomingTheir loyalty program is so thoughtful! Sometimes a glass of champagne at check in, complimentary wine/beer at the lounges or restaurants, or complimentary coffee from the in-house Caribou Coffee branded shop are always so appreciated I recently also booked services at the spa and it was truly a luxury experienceSo, with all of the hotels to choose from in the area, I’ll continue to come to Omni

Cassandra Krzebietke

This place is excellent My fiancé and I booked a regular room and were able to upgrade to a suite for half the price We had a huge bathtub and shower room

Very clean room, comfy bedThe food down at the restaurant is good too Only complaint I have is the fries were not all that great But my Korean Fried Chicken sandwich and his steak was so yummy! We had breakfast down at the little coffee shop (wasn’t great for the price…)We also got couples massages at the spa and were treated like royalty when we went in there You can use the spa all day if you book a serviceOverall, it was a nice and enjoyable experience We were sad to leave!

Huge walk in full tile shower Bedding was clean, new, yet soft Thick and heavy window treatments kept plenty of light out in the morning, much appreciated Our room had a private outdoor deck/patio that was fairly secluded and our favorite part complementary anti pasto app and wine on arrival Delicious complementary breakfast as well Breakfast was beyond our expectations My husband prefers full leaf tea and is hard to please and said the tea was amazing Breakfast pastries were fresh and tasted even better than they looked Oranged juice was freshly squeezed Bathroom had ample shampoo and body wash in herbal refreshing scent my husband loved We will definitely recommend and return!

Pros:Well decorated rooms, central location, friendly staffCons:Because there is little sound insulation between the second floor rooms and the bustling bar/cafe downstairs, they’re very loud The proprietors seem to know this, as there’s a white noise machine in the room, but it doesn’t do much good if you’re hoping for actual quiet

The included “breakfast” is a pastry and drip coffee If you want an espresso-based coffee, a flat white in my case, it’s offered at the eye popping rate of $5 Egg? Be prepared to pay This policy felt hostile and penny pinching given the cost of the room

Although the hotel was recently remodeled and looked nice there seemed to be some deeper issues The elevators were slow and noisy and didn’t seem to run wellWe had dozens of ants in our room

The ants were in our bathroom as well as on the dresser in the main room The room also did not include a hair dry and a burnt out light bulb in the the bed side table (We did not complain until checkout as we arrived late and were gone all day We noticed the ants when we got back but we leaving early the next morning)When we mentioned the ants and light bulb to the front desk staff at check out they didn’t take note of our room number It was clear they either knew about the ant problem in the hotel or didn’t care they have an ant problem We did not ask for or expect any compensation and were only interested in seeing they cared about the issues This is not a cheap hotel and I expected much better at this price point

I am a Hilton Honors member and made a reservation at this location for one night being in town for work I had stayed here multiple times before because of its location and I liked the rooms I was asked to show the card I planned on using to pay for the room(the same card I used to make the reservation) and was told that they could not accept it

I explained to the gentleman at the front counter that it was a business card that I use while traveling and have used it at this location before as recently as the week before He said that was irrelevant and he couldn’t do anything to help I was quite furious when I left Especially because it was 1030 at night and I was exhausted I got to my vehicle, cancelled my reservation and made another one at the Hampton Inn 5 minutes down the road and didn’t have any issues paying with the same card that was turned down earlierI don’t ever plan on recommending this location to anyone nor do I plan on staying here againThank you

Rooms and public spaces were clean, which is rare these days Housekeepers said hi when they saw us in the hallways, which is niceFront desk staff wasn’t very friendly and they forgot to fulfill our request a few times

Elevator was very slow the last day When we asked about it, the front desk was obviously irritated that they had to answer about the slow elevatorPool is indoors but well maintained and clean with towels at the ready

I cannot say enough good things about this place I have no complaints The staff does an AMAZING job! The housekeeping staff takes the cake here

Soooo kind, professional, and thorough Breakfast options were plenty! Beds were comfy, pool area was clean and very well maintained I would recommend this place to anyone who’s looking for 5 star treatment with a balling on a budget lifestyle

My room was clean and we had a decent night’s sleep I walked into the Hotel and the desk person was sitting in a chair I didn’t know that he was the desk person

While I checked in a woman asked for towels for the pool area and since the person was checking me in, he didn’t tend to her needs immediately She actually waited for awhile When I checked in he proceeded to put a $150 hold on my card for incidentals, because I prepaid through a third party I personally didn’t care for this because I checked in at approximately 5:15pm and checked out at 6am the next morning Still waiting for the charge to go back on my card SmhI never experienced this at other Country Inn and Suite locations even when I purchase through a third partyAs I was checking out at 6am there were family members in the lobby? It actually made me feel somewhat uncomfortable I probably won’t stay at this location again because I didn’t feel fully comfortable

Customer service was exceptional I tried to get the women’s name that helped us check in and couldn’t get it But she was wonderful and made my daughters birthday stay feel very special

So awesomeThe room was beautiful, unique and very cleanWe loved the hotel was connected to the mall We never had to leave that was super coolOne thing that I thought was the pool was supposed to be salt water but we smelled a lot like chlorine Not a big deal the pool was also fun and loved the tables we got to have dinnerWe will absolutely be back!

Mark Drury

Hotel is very nice Radisson needs to focus on building more ‘Blu’ hotels in the USA Staff was extremely friendly, great shuttle service to and from the airport and local businesses

It’s attached to the Mall so easy access to shopping The on-site bar was excellentThe rooms were very nice but the walls were very thin; could hear doors closing down the hall and the loud TV from the next room over Overall a good stay

Denise Morgan

We came with our son for spring break The lobby is so cool and comfy The rooms were fun and funky

The bed was a little firm for me but the pillows were perfect Note that the room service menu is on the TV along with other information We kept looking for a book The in- house restaurant, Firehouse Grill is so yummy I loved that the hotel was attached to the Mall of America, it was so convenient My only complaints are that there are not many channels to watch on TV, unless you want to pay for on demand, so we just streamed from our phone The main chair in our room was stained with ink, a drink of some sort, and full of dirt The rest of the room was very clean though and we spent most of our time exploring so not a big deal The shower was a rain head with a hand attachment as well Heaven! The pool is nice but not very big It fills up fast and there is also no hot tub Room service was awesome Would definitely come again I wish I took better pics

Decent hotel and the price wasn’t bad for the location Huge shoutout to Vivian in the breakfast lounge She is amazing and quite an asset to the hotel

Great hospitality!!! Unfortunately, I do have a couple of complaints: 1 We had no idea there was a free breakfast for guests until I was walking in the hotel the first morning after picking up McDonalds already There was nothing on my reservation confirmation and we weren’t told about it when we checked in That would’ve been nice to know before I spent money elsewhere on food 2 The south facing rooms definitely hear the interstate traffic outside We could hear it well in the morning when we were trying to sleep in 3 The blackout curtains in our room weren’t perfect at keeping the light outOther than these issues, our stay was acceptable and we were overall pleased with our stay The staff was very friendly Just wish they would’ve told us about the free buffet when we checked in

(Due to a roach problem at the La Quinta in Bloomington, MN, I had to change hotels!)I found the Radisson online and checked in and I’m so glad I did! Excellent customer service! Beautifully decorated and clean rooms Prices were great and parking secure and enclosed

You need a ticket or Passcode to exitFree breakfast and even pet friendly Also great location, half mile from St Paul state capitol and expressways I will stay here again when I return!

Dylan Barth

The staff here was the most helpful hotel staff I’ve ever experienced Every interaction was helpful and positiveThe highlight was dropping my airpod down the elevator shaft

I thought I would never get it back and within 20 minutes it was hand delivered to meAbsolutely excellent experience Thankful for the folks who work here
