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

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

Super great stay We spent a couple days here after our wedding reception Kristen and Angel were extremely attentive staff members, amongst many others who helped make our stay that much more comfortable and wonderful

Rooms were comfortable and had a great view – rooms were stocked well with plenty of amenities Very convenient location (walking distance to target field/center, downtown) ample parking in underground garage, located in a mall Hope to stay here again soon

Jackie Lauren

My husband and I stayed here for a night on the day of our wedding (June 25th) and had such an incredible experience We ended up being upgraded to the presidential suite and the room was beautiful! So spacious and had a great view Easily the best hotel room we have ever stayed in

Also wanted to add that the woman who checked us in was so sweet and genuinely excited for us! Overall had a wonderful experience and would absolutely stay here again Thank you for making our stay so special!

My sister was visiting from NC so we opted to stay in the city for the weekend (4/8-4/10) We literally chose this hotel for the view and location I reserved our room a month in advance and added our reservation to the list for a 16-19 floor room with a view

However, when we arrived and I asked for a higher floor, I was given room 1456 which had a north view with a very tall building right across the street (I could barely see the top of it w/o putting my face on the window) and another tall dark building behind it, off center to the left There were several very noticeable stains on the floor and ottomans The shower was turned so tightly we both had trouble turning it on I had to hit it repeatedly to break it loose When we called the front desk for help we were told it would be 30-60 minutes for someone to come help There were gnats in the shower and it wasn’t until we showered that we realized why the water took forever to drain! By the end of my 30 minute showers I was in ankle deep water, wading in my own crud The ice drawers in the hall way had a bag of ice in them that was torn open, I’m assuming to take a cup at our own risk? We opted not toRoom service was very quick When we first arrived and checked in, I asked for extra towels and the awesome room service beat me to my room with them! I complained about none of this during our stay because we were busy exploring Minneapolis and St Paul before I leave for good However, I did email the hotel so they will hopefully resolve these issues for future guests!I’m giving 3 stars instead of 1 due to the location and ease or parking (very safe, gated underground ramp) Otherwise, I’m highly disappointed in the quality of this hotel

Facility is nice, however, nothing went according to plan Got two rooms and requested them adjoining, they weren’t When I first got here they had the rooms in opposite sides of the hotel

Had 3 kids with me with 2 teenagers and under the impression the room slept 6 but only 2 beds No pull out couch, only the floor Very noisy, however, there was a wrestling tournament in town so lots of kids Mini fridge was full of ice so couldn’t really use because nothing fit Overall the place seemed clean and updated Not an ideal experience

Melissa Dickison

We stayed at this a courtyard by Marriott on Thursday March 24th and rented 2 rooms, one for my family and one for my sister’s family When we arrived, Matthew the Operations Manager (which he told us over and over again), checked us in The check in process took 20 minutes and at the end he asked us if we planned to leave our car while traveling, to which we answered yes

He rolled his eyes and became very clearly frustrated and explained how he would have to do everything over and how much more expensive it would be, which we were fine with Our kids were getting restless which was clearly distracting to him and he raised his voice at my sister and I that the kids needed to “sit down and be quiet”When we finally got to our room I called the front desk to ask if we could order pizza and have it delivered to the pool The person who answered said yes Once at the pool, Matt the Operations Manager came to our table, raised his voice that we could not have food in the pool We explained what the front desk said but he said we had to “get out” of the pool area and that he would be standing there to make a sure we leftOnce back in our room I got a call from the front desk that we needed to being our friends and family documents to the front desk They never asked for them when we checked in and refused to let me email them to them like I have at every other Marriott we have used a friends and family discount at Both of my kids were sleeping so I could not go use their printer and provide them to them The woman who called explained she would be adjusting our room to the regular rate because I would not bring them down It should be a basic expectation that they ask for these documents at check in and I should not have been further inconvenienced or treated like I was acting deceptively because of their oversight and lack of operational abilityThe final straw for us was we had dirty glasses, sheets and floor in our room Also, In advance I verified they had a shuttle service to the airport and they confirmed they did starting at 4 AM When we called to set that up they said it didn’t start until 5 AM making it totally purposeless for us to stay thereWe have been Marriott members for a long time and our family always appreciates the care and service we receive at every Marriott property This location, and specifically Matt the Operations Manager, is the exact opposite of the brand and quality Marriott works so hard to lead by example with This was a terrible start to our vacation and we will reconsider our use of Marriott going forward


Got a different room than booked, charged differently than they said over the phone, sinking bed, literally even just looking at it you can see it dip towards the middle, loudest neighbor possible Then we were charged a security deposit and that was never told to us, plus they stated it could take 39 days to come back As for a roof over our head and running water, it served it’s purpose but would not stay here again

My wife and I recently stayed at this super hip and fun hotel in downtown Minneapolis The accommodations were great, the atmosphere hip, and the location pretty niceAnd while we were expecting a restaurant on the premises, we were able to find several nearby

The PROS: Cool vibe Nice amenities Super, super nice people I especially enjoyed talking with Paris Khoddami and Lynn Williams, both in the Sales/Marketing department for Moxy Also, the bartenders were superbThe CONS: No on-site restaurant (a pretty big miss, IMHO) And the windows don’t open You know, for “Fresh Air?”Other than that, superb visit

Zuly “Catholic Charismatics” K

Dog & Cat Friendly Complimentary house cocktail at check-in Free coffee

Nice gym NO free parking PARK around the corner, overnight for only $5 No pool Smaller rooms No snacks & No free breakfast Hotel smells great Funny or offensive male model DO NOT disturb signs? Awesome architecture & design Plenty of public seating space Convenient location right across trader Joe’s & Jimmy John’s Price okay? More deals are welcomed, can keep this hotel booked solid year round Consider offering hotel guests greater parking discount Finally, exceptional MUK shampoo & conditioner

Michael Bosley

feel like it needs to be said the rooms are nice but why is there a guitar and an amp in my room?? i don’t know how to play a guitar but if someone happenes to come back to their room dunk one night, they might want to try play it which wouldn’t be great for the room next to me as the rooms aren’t very soundproof

Also, the bartenders downstairs don’t know how to mix drinks beyond a simple gin and tonic so be careful just stick to the simple drink requests

I really wanted to leave a 5 star review, but couldn’t The rooms are spacious and modern The breakfast is good

I can’t give it 5 stars because of the atrium noise Guests are to follow the quiet rules beginning at 9:00 There was a wedding reception that was still going strong at 11:00 The reception was in a ballroom/meeting room, but some of the the reception guests used the atrium They were loud Very loud If paying guests are to follow the quiet hours, then should reception guests

Rochelle Burger

The bathrooms are small, mildew on the ceiling in the shower Needs an update and added ventilation to it The deck door froze over and once it warmed up it melted to the bottom

No drainage holes The living area is nice and roomy Had a room with two queen beds Did not use the pool, no sitting area (table/chairs) The attached restaurant has really good food, will definitely return for that

Alan Duck

Had an incredible experience at the Embassy during a recent post-Covid work trip The hotel made hospitality feel like the good old days Front desk was very swift and attentive

However, the bar was set in the restaurant this trip Shannon the manager had a stacked house and her staff ran the place like pros Shannon cultivated a connection with many guests, despite how busy they were Azure, a new waitress, was equally exceptional Service was fast and my entire Corporate team will now know this is the place to stay on our next visit Highly recommended

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!

I was really pleasantly surprised at how fantastic our stay was given the price was cheaper than the competition I expected, given reviews, that it would be good, but it was great! Excellent staff at the desk, who even offered to help find a discount given why we were in townThe food staff, who were kind and helpful, and created quality way above hotel normal food

Really, way better than your average hotel food–and free! Lobby and rooms were clean, well appointed, and comfortable I watched multiple times how staff took pride in their work; I watched a staff member pass just a tiny paper on the floor He stopped and picked it up They all appeared happy, too I highly recommend!

John Sandfer

My family and I stayed two nights last week (Thurs/Fri) and could not be more pleased with this Hotel Property was well kept, rooms were clean and spacious, pool was small but nice for the kids FREE Breakfast was excellent with lots of offerings hot and cold

Nightly reception with hot buffet and drinks for FREE was amazing! Staff were very friendly and helpful as was the bar and grill staff located inside the hotel At the price per night it was an awesome deal considering all the freebies they provide We originally were going to stay just one night for a concert in town but loved it so much we opted for a second Would highly recommend this property if staying in the downtown area, we will be returning again soon just for fun

Amanda Heyda

Stayed for almost 3 weeks while my loved one was in Regions Hospital The staff were amazing They were so friendly, helpful, and understanding with all the stress I was under

The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, hot breakfast and supper daily and free adult drinks at supper Which really took alot of stress off me Plus they have guest laundry room so I could wash clothes! Wish I would have made it too the pool They also have 4 elevators centrally located so there was little wait

Staff wasn’t overly friendly Called ahead to get an early check in, the gal was nice and said it wouldn’t be a problem

but when we checked in, another gal said we couldn’t check-in early So after a 4 hour drive we had to sit in the parking lot Then at 3, we went back and got our room, only to try to open the door and some guy was in the room So we went back to the front desk & they have us another room The air conditioning units don’t work well Beds were comfy, but smaller than the queens I’ve stayed in before Pillows were nice Housekeeping ladies were really nice Only 2 elevators worked and it was during a conference weekend, so that was a pain But it was a convenient location, as I was attending the conference The conference was awesome and the staff helping at the conference were great Overall I wouldn’t go back, and honestly would only recommend it as a last resort to anyone traveling that way

Kim Wilson

AJ was a great help during our stay He helped us with directions several times, he recommended places to eat, things to do, and he got us extra coffee, creamer, and toiletries when we needed them The young lady who worked with him at the front desk was also very pleasant

The beds are super comfortable, and the fridge and in-room coffee maker are great The rooms are very clean We had room service for breakfast, and it was really good I never get enough butter on my toast, but it was perfect The location is close to the mall and the airport, which is nice The box fan in the closet is a great idea for those who need white noise to sleep

Amber K

The service was excellent, and the (wellness) room was practically immaculate There was an adorable “puppy” made out of a towel right when you walk in, and the air was very soothing The staff let us know about all the amenities available, and they were very professional and kind

The pool was down for maintenance, and there is no complimentary breakfast or sauna, but overall it was a very nice hotel experience

Very friendly staff especially one of the ladies at front desk, wish I’d caught her nameOur room was super clean and fully equipped kitchenette! There was a very nice continental breakfast spread in the morning (with fresh fruits) We were able to walk from here to Mall of America pretty easily

There’s a really nice gym here which I took full advantage of and basically got to use all to myself since there was nobody in there 2 of the 3 times I went to use! 😀

Charlie Mader

Rooms are very noisy I stay in hotel rooms 10 to 15 nights per month for work and these are some of the thinnest walls and floors I’ve ever experienced I could clearly hear people conversing in the adjacent room and every step people took in the room above

Another negative is the slow and unreliable WiFiOther than that it is a nice, clean property with friendly staff, but if your primary goal is a quiet night of sleep it probably isn’t the best choice

Brad Beggs

Nice, newer hotel across the street from MOA and a five-minute drive or 15-minute light-rail trip to the airport Parking is freeRooms include a small kitchen with a real stove and oven

The pool is nice, there are a couple of outdoor seating areas, and breakfast offers a nice variety of warm options like sandwiches, omelets, waffles, and oatmealIt is very well kept and managed, with excellent checkin service from Jon

I arrived late and they didn’t have my room available The next day I was finally placed in the correct room However the initial arrival was extremely frustrating

The staff was very nice and did do their best to help us out The hotel is beautiful The decor is outstanding The beds are incredibly comfortable So if your reservation isn’t messed up, an amazing place to stay

Penny Kramer

Accommodations for my daughter’s wedding… 11/10The Rand Hotel had the white glove approach and accommodated over a hundred out of town guests for our daughter’s wedding Everything was exceptionally handled, from the guest check-in to the impeccable service in the dining area Guests commented that they were treated like royalty, and the staff bent over backwards to help meet their needs

One review came from my elderly parents When the dining area was closed for lunch, the service staff cheerfully accommodated them with whatever they desired off the menu On a separate occasion, our large family was having breakfast and wanted to sit together, so the staff orchestrated a table to seat 14 people comfortably in the tower club outside the restaurant areaKelly, the event coordinator, went out of her way so many times by overseeing the arrival of guests to organizing the welcome bags we had delivered for each guest! Kelly orchestrated a warm, welcoming environment to host a bar of welcome drinks in the Rand Tower Club, and guests were in awe at the atmosphere of the club and bar service! It’s a gorgeous space for such an eventAll hotel staff, from the reception desk to the service personnel, proved to go out of their way to make guests feel at home The downtown affair was an incredible experience and we have heard from many guests that the rooms were spotless and the beds were very comfortableThe Rand Tower impressed them beyond measure! I would recommend the Rand Tower Hotel for a stay or to host a special occasion in the Rand Tower Club on the 5th Floor!

Jon Webb

This was a fascinating place! No valet parking, or parking at all, which was a little confusing initially We paid $30 a night for parking across the street We used the sky bridge Friday to get back, but the sky bridge was locked and closed on the weekend, which was weird considering it was the access to the hotel via the parking garage

The rooms were very small but had everything we needed They didn’t do any room service while we were there, which was fineWe went to the whiskey and soda and ended up leaving because the bartender seemed flustered and didn’t talk to us to order

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!

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

Green Heron Bed and Breakfast

Very seldom do we get a chance to travel, but when we do, where do we stay? Why another bed and breakfast of course, and this one was amazing! From the location, right up the road from the Como Conservatory, close to restaurants, and surrounded by beautiful architecture, to the wonderful breakfasts and conversation Carla is delightful! She has lived there for years and knows so much about the local area and we were wowed with her culinary talent We will be back!

A magical and truly comforting experience! The entire place is gorgeous and decorated with a beautifully curated eye There’s an enchanting garden in front and it’s only a few steps from lake Como Carla is a warm and gracious host

All the little touches and extras in the rooms make you feel cared for and special I loved all the antique books and quilts!

Claire Federici

We all loved the place We had 5 family members who stayed between 5-7 nights each Carla is so gracious and interesting, her dogs are fantastic, the furnishings are endlessly interesting-so much to look at! And the breakfasts were delicious, with interesting conversations with other guests

The location just across the street from the lake and an easy walk from the band shell made it so simple to go rent a canoe or kayak or buy an ice cream I would certainly stay there again, and recommend it to any of my friends and family

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

Despite being part of the Marriott Bonvoy program for many years, this the first time I stayed in a hotel of their W brand, and the experience was great Service was excellent during my stay both in the front desk and in the Prohibition Bar The hotel is well-located, close to many eateries and attractions downtown

However, what most impressed me was the Foshay’s design I love hotels that have an extra care with their design elements and, in some of the major chains, it is hard to find something truly distinctive Given the historical nature of the building, there are strong Art Deco elements everywhere However, the interior designers were able to add many modern touches that look both glitzy and historic, while delivering a contemporary touch, especially with the use of multi-colored accent walls Just the right amount of personality — a little more and it would look pretentious The rooms are also very well designed The basic room where I stayed was definitely small (it is an old building, after all) but the use of the right furniture makes it look much more spacious The restroom is very comfortable, and I loved the large rain shower, with the area covered with the same tiles on the walls and on the floor Definitely a place I will return to in a future trip to Minneapolis

I give this 3 stars instead of 5 for this reason My husband and I came to Minneapolis for his Grandmother’s 90th birthday This is my first trip to the city

I booked the hotel over a month ago My husband and I have different last names and sometimes get confused on whose name is under Upon our arrival to the hotel we were greeted rather hastily by the woman at the front desk She asked us our name, and for our ID, right away She then very sticky said she couldn’t find us and in the same sentence asked for our confirmation number As my husband was looking for the reservation she kept repeating herself that we were not in the system As he stated to read the number he red 2 digits and she cut him off and said we didn’t book it with them that wasn’t their confirmation number She then grabbed my husband’s phone and started to scroll through flipped it around shoved it in his face and said that we booked it for the day before and that we were no call no shows I was blind sided Everything was moving so fast and she was now taking to us in such a condescending manner I was getting upset I finally said to her to look it up under my husband’s name She rolled her eyes and did She told me I needed to be better organized Started to rattle off our room number and how to get there and stopped acknowledging me She made me so mad I started to call around to other hotels because I no longer wanted to stay The 3 starts is for the fun and elaborate decor Nothing to do with the staff because we were never greeted or acknowledged in our 4 day stay at $690 total

I have never stayed at this hotel but I recently did pay a visit The best part? The observance deck is amazing! We got keys at the front desk so we could access the elevators and we went up to the 30th floor You’ll find a small museum when you exit and then you can take the stairs up which will lead you to an exit where you can go outside and see a beautiful view of the city

It was a great place to take photos We also made our way down to an area where we sat and ordered drinks The main floor had a very cool fire place and live music too! Many things to do in just one building The worst part? Parking is too hard to find and expensive so we ended up doing valet which was a little over $20 total It is also more of a dark, fancy ambient so it won’t be everyone’s vibe Drinks were also about $17-$20 each which may be too expensive for some but we were having a nice evening with a visiting friend so it was worth it for us

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
