Neasha Tanner

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

Angela Steagall

Terry at the front desk was wonderful She is kind, personable and upbeat She got us the late checkout we needed

Our room was nice and comfortable and the hotel was quiet My one complaint was with the night staff She was rude Seemed like I was bothering her by asking for juice 30 minutes before breakfast Another employee was nice enough to help me Over all a good experience I’m not sure they should have someone with such a negative demeanor working their front desk, even if it is overnight

David Kellermeyer

I almost always book at Hampton Inn

I like the chain and it is generally reliable I seldom if ever write reviews My advice would be to avoid this particular Hampton Inn The property seems old and a bit run down There is a single elevator for a three story hotel No ice machines on either the second or third floor The parking area design is poor I don’t know how well the hotel is managedthe check-in clerk took forever to get me a room and then sent me to a room that wasn’t ready for occupancy I hate to write this, as I am a loyal customer of Hampton, but I would advise people to find a different hotel in the St Paul area I will continue to stay at Hampton Inns, but not at this one

Cassandra Rose

Staff is friendly and the breakfast was good but the rooms are tiny, the bed squeaked every time we moved and there were stains on several things in our room (curtains, desk chair, lounge chair) Hot tub isn’t working either which isn’t a huge deal but it’s one of the only amenities The building is also in a shared parking lot so it was really loud in our first floor room starting around 6am

Stephanie Holt

I am so happy I booked the carriage house instead of a hotel It afforded me a lot more privacy than your standard room, and was just so cute The meals were amazing

I think Kevin’s pancakes are the best I have ever had in my life, even better than my own! If you come to stay here, definitely don’t skip the breakfast Kevin was a great host and made the whole experience amazing Beautiful house in a beautiful neighborhood Parking was great as well and he even let us plug in a block heater for our diesel truck (good thing too because it was so cold that I don’t think we’d be able to get it started otherwise) 10/10 would visit again

Shirlee Smith

Excellent beyond expectations! We don’t expect to return to St Paul, but if we do, this is where we want to stay The Carriage House is a delightful private apartment

Kevin’s breakfasts were fantastic! And the neighborhood is absolutely charming We enjoyed trying a different restaurant each night, and on the last night went bar hopping to be sure we hadn’t messed anything — all within easy walking distance of the B&B

Theresa Watson

I wish we could rate the Historic District bed and breakfast with higher than 5 stars! It was an absolutely lovely stay in every way! The home is gorgeous and the rooms are spotless and extremely comfortable Kevin was such a helpful and kind host—not to mention an amazing chef! One of the best breakfasts we’ve ever had! We will definitely be coming back Thank you, Kevin!

Cherise Fillinger

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

Zebulen Dickey

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

Kacey Hammer

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

Brendan Allen

Stayed at this hotel with my entire extended family for a funeral Staff was extremely friendly and courteous and the General Manager Lynne was a great help in helping make arrangements for dinner at the adjoining Machine Shed (which was delicious)The hotel is very clean, and the lobby is beautiful

Very comfortable beds and large bathrooms is a plus The pool area is incredibly spacious and the kids loved itWill definitely be staying here again

Lydia Keskitalo

Clean rooms and great staff, but the floor plan is very odd Many of the rooms look into the pool which itself isn’t bad, but the windows are very thin and the pool doesn’t close until 11:00pm This can be a problem if you are here for business or if you like to get to bed early

However, good prices, clean rooms, and helpful staff makes this hotel a good place to stay in St Paul

Lisa M

Black hole of a room Overall, the hotel was fairly nice, typical Holiday Inn…HOWEVER, our room had absolutely no natural light coming in

We had a window, but it faced a wall Pitch black at all hours Hard to relax, when you have no idea what it’s like outside, or cues that it’s getting late, etc We (spouse and kids) slept terribly as we all kept waking up at various times afraid we’d oversleep (yes, we used an alarm clock), since we had no other cues it was morning Pic was taken before checkout at 9:30 am, just to show how ridiculous it wasWas never informed our room was like that when making booking, or calling in to confirm that day Unable to get new room as hotel was booked No refund as prepaid for best price We’re done with the IHG brand after this

Chelsea Harper

We were very pleased with our stay here All staff were very friendly The room was clean and the free breakfast was fantastic

The little walk in pool and water slide were perfect for our 1 year old Our housekeeper came in between our night stays and gave fresh towels and went as far to pick up our daughters baby doll toy off the floor so she could vacuum and wrapped it in its swaddle and placed its bottle next to it on the bed It was just a very sweet gesture that we appreciated We will recommend this hotel to everyone we know coming this way

Pearl White

Outstanding service, room, bed, and breakfast Showerhead needed cleaning, but the rest was amazing The room was so open and clean

It had all the amenities I neededThe service desk handled all the weird changes my company threw at her While she was working with me, she recognized the next customer in line and told them she would be “right with them” Another employee heard that and promptly came out of the office to help Wonderful service

Dylan Rybak

The hotel was nice for the price in a good location Had no issues at the beginning First maid service came through, didn’t really do the greatest job cleaning the room and didn’t take out the garbage

But whatever, COVID procedures probably we didn’t care that much But the next day the assistant manager Jordan went out of her way to tell my wife that they QUOTE “need to have a discussion” about the amount of trash in our room I was like are you kidding me? You guys didn’t take it out and we have 3 adults and two small children who are in diapers, and we’re doing our best My wife waited patiently in the lobby while the maid cleaned the room only to have that embarrassing comment made by somebody with some authority while she struggled to keep our children entertained Very demeaning I have quite a lot of nights under my belt with Wyndham hotels and haven’t run into something that ridiculous yet Now I have to say that I called and freaked out because I was so angry, she did apologize but also tried to make my complaint seem less important because we were staying on a “discounted rate” The toilet in the room had brown swirls underneath the lip you could see when sitting in the tub, kind of gross No compensation was given for our complaint which we weren’t expecting but I think would’ve been warranted I don’t think we will stay here again

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

Lisa Hudson

(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

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!

The rooms and the home itself are gorgeous, the mattress was way comfier than most hotel mattresses I’ve slept on, and the owner was an excellent host! She let our group take over the dining room for the night to celebrate a birthday with takeout and a tabletop game, and in the morning she made us french toast, even accommodating my partner’s cinnamon allergy A fantastic experience all around! We’ll definitely be back 🙂

Andrew

My wife and I stayed here for a birthday getaway and had a fantastic experience The lovely property and rich history of the neighborhood was worth it alone, but access to restaurants only a couple blocks away and a wonderful breakfast cooked by Whitney, the owner, along with an engaging conversation with her and the other guests during that delicious meal made this a truly remarkable experience

Jeff Gammon

My wife and I recently stayed a night for an early Valentine’s Day celebration The building is beautiful and cozy- as are much of the surrounding neighborhoods Parking was super easy

The owner was such a sweet and friendly person- she made a truly amazing breakfast for everyone! If a had to split hairs on potential improvements: the fireplace in our room wasn’t a working fireplace- that would have added to the ambiance on a cold winter night Also, the water has a slight sulfur smell to it Other than those minor things- would highly recommend staying here!

Couldn’t be happier with this hotel Small hotel charm with beautifully decorated room Bathroom was spacious and had lots of natural, yet private light from frosted windows

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!

Jack Rusher

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

Large room and front desk guys were friendly But the room itself had many dirty areas The sliding door that’s supposed to cover where the bathroom sink is was completely missing! Inside the fridge was dirty

Many sticky spots on the floors No paper cups for coffee, just clear plastic cups for water No laundry bag Only 4 hangars Iron didn’t work correctly (no steam on any setting) Breakfast was awful and the worker in there needs a lesson on customer service At exactly 9 am, instead of asking me and my husband and the other couple who were still eating if there was anything else we needed, she just rudely shut the door to the area where the food was! She also did not refill multiple items that were missing or empty I poured myself a bowl of cereal and then found out that both milks were empty, she didn’t refill the coffee, there was nothing in the mini fridge, no apple juice Etc The person in the room next to us was making noise for hours at night I couldn’t get to sleep until almost 4 am and then I ended up oversleeping The only thing that helped was turning the fan on so it was constantly on and my husband and I both woke up with sore throats The room had a bad smell of smoke mixed with an unclean AC There is no way to open windows here After checking out we noticed a man in a parking lot cleaning his ears and then throwing the Q-tips on the ground! Absolutely disgusting Also, when we checked out the front desk gentleman told us to have a good day but he never asked how our stay was

We had a large group stay at Celeste over the weekend The Celeste staff went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful! The bar staff were very accommodating, the included breakfast in the Chapel Room was perfectly delicious with plenty of choices to meet all dietary needs The rooms were amazing! Our view of the state capital out one window and the old church out the other was second to none

We will definitely stay at this beautiful hotel again! Thank you!

Brianna Sanders

Pros – The rooms were clean and cozy Loved the historical character that has come from the redevelopment to a hotel It is in a great location – many restaurants within a 10 minute walk, the train is right next to it, and close to the river

Booked my room online and reception was a breeze Super friendly staff as wellCons – You must climb a flight of stairs to enter through the front entrance to get to reception There is a side entrance that is a bit more accessible – just further from reception There is minimal parking in the front of the hotel for checking in Paid parking is offered down the street

Dany Stoufer

My wife and I stayed in the Celeste Suite for our anniversary and were very pleased with our stay This room had tall ceilings and windows with black out shades I loved the blue color and the architecture

Breakfast was really good as well! The building is right next to the metro train and I could hear it late at night and early in the morning; however we did have a great stay and we will stay again if we’re in the area I also did not feel like you need to religious to stay here just because it was a convent before

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!

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

So relaxing…we celebrated our 13th anniversary and stayed in the Pilots suite, complete with a separate living room and private deck This was a welcome respite from the business of everyday life The decor is homey and comfortable

Liz the owner is attentive and engaging when you want the company We brought wine and our own cribbage board but you can buy a bottle I understand and there’s lots of games and books for your enjoyment The views are stunning and the breakfast delish! We’ll be back again and stay longer!

Michelle Cable-Collins

This is a fabulous quaint place to stay that by far beats a traditional hotel My room and breakfast were fantastic!!! If I ever make my way back to St Paul, I will be staying atThe Covington Inn – I won’t settle for less!

Lovely Thao

The experience was unique & wonderful; it felt like we were away from our home without really being away The downtown city scape at night from the boat was gorgeous Liz was a good, accommodating host and cooked a delicious morning breakfast

She was also very communicative and responsive with text Would defintely come back again 🙂

Very impressed with the quality of the rooms and polite staff Loads of amenities From the coffee maker, to the fancy shampoo, the room is built to impress

We were staying for just one night but it was so great that I will definitely be booking here if I ever returnThe rooms have a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and tons of storage options We’ll lit and good temperature controlsThe bed was very comfortable and the room was so clean It was such a wonderful change of pace compared to the hotels I have stayed in recently My only complaint would be the pillows were too soft All the stuffing moved to the other side of the pillow and I woke up with a sore neck – not the end of the worldMost impressive was the breakfast With the generous hours running from 5am to 9am, and equally as generous options, you will not be disappointedThis is definitely not your typical covid time breakfast Waffles, coffee, juice, Greek yogurt, fluffy scrambled eggs, sausages and sausage gravy, biscuits, cereal and fruit, danishes, toast, bagels The staff were bringing out food even at 8:30Check in and check out were a breeze and the staff were friendly and helpfulIf you’re in the area, check out this gem

Great place to stay at a reasonable price Helpful, smiling and just the right amount of friendly, staff The suite was large with two features I have never seen before in a hotel room

A window bench which my wife just loved and a center island with a sink Very handy! Breakfast was pretty typical for this type of hotel The only drawback was the walls are fairly thin It was not a problem as everyone quieted down at night

John Schafer

Spent a night here, and it was a clean, comfortable room Room size is small, but since we were just using it for a single night, that was not a concern for us They had a basic breakfast buffet in the morning (cereal, eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, yogurt, toast, etc

), and they had access to a computer/printer to be able to print out boarding passes for our flight in the morning Very helpful young man at the front desk when we checked in, as well as when we checked out in the morning Will definitely return

Hotel is very dated The breakfast is hit or miss – day one was meat, potatoes and eggs Day two was potatoes and eggs

Day three was potatoes, french toast, and eggs Day four was cold breakfast for $9 Day five was a full spread I watched someone try to check in at 6PM and get told their room was not ready yet because housekeeping was short staffed Check in is at 3! It was comfortable enough but I will definitely try a different hotel when in the area again

Mike Beschen

I stayed here almost a month So got a really good feel for how things a run at this location I’ve stayed at several Hilton properties

This one may be the absolute worst one I asked several times for my sheets to be changed, that only happen once during my 26 day stay They never once vacuumed the carpeting in my room Also you can forget about the bar and restaurant It’s almost never open The staff is very friendly but they are working under a manager that is inept I’ll be staying at the Marriott next week

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

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!!

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

If you want to waste a lot of time finding a place to stay you picked the right group Could not book a room on the app or the website Waited on the phone for over 25 minutes and then the price is conveniently $40 more

I’ll pass, I don’t have that much time There are plenty of hotels that have efficient reservation processes This is the second time in three stays, never again!! Sad because the hotels are beautiful but not worth the headache

Anika Logan

Their still doing no cleaning due to Covid however I didn’t know that meant public areas too You’ll be waiting on the phone trying to book an reservation for 5-10 minutes, which is ridiculous The manager Samantha is absolutely rude

When asking simply questions she seem anxious and irritated Truthfully if they revived a different manager I feel as tho this hotel could be a nice However Melvin at the front desk was very nice and helpful

Brooke Schaefer

Clean, updated, spacious rooms I like there’s a “market” in the building for snacks that may have been forgotten for the trip

Having Starbucks coffee in the lobby is always an awesome feature Staff is friendly and helpful Just wish they had things in the rooms saying when the snack/drink bar closed Or a list of nearby restaurants that delivered to the hotel
