Book a stay at our Holiday Inn® hotels in St. Paul and discover the Twin Cities’ frontier spirit, from the 19th-century wooden barracks of Historic Fort Snelling to the vintage boxcars of the Minnesota History Center.
Our St. Paul hotels lie within view of the mighty Mississippi River, which wends its way lazily past the capitol, the city’s museums and St. Paul’s business center. A stay in our hotels in St. Paul also put you in the thick of Minnesota history. Visitors revel in the cannon booms and 19th-century costumed militiamen at Fort Snelling, the birthplace of the Twin Cities. At the Minnesota History Center, you can don headsets and tap your toes to the musical sounds of native sons Bob Dylan and Prince while the kids clamber over the chutes and slides of a retrofitted grain elevator. High atop a hill overlooking the Twin Cities is the gleaming white marble dome of the Minnesota State Capitol.
From our St. Paul hotels it’s just a short drive to Grand Avenue, the Twin Cities’ favorite shopping neighborhood. Buy hand-dipped chocolates, one-of-a-kind felt hats or handbags of reconstructed materials from independent boutiques before pausing over a coffee along the avenue. Our hotels in St. Paul put you near the restaurants of St. Peter Street, where contemporary sushi bars sit beside old-school Italian joints and darkly paneled steakhouses. After hours, cool jazz and soulful blues fill the air when the neighborhood’s favorite restaurants morph into casual wine and martini bars.
Book a room at one of our Holiday Inn St. Paul hotels in summer to kayak down the Mississippi River, or in winter when Rice Park is ablaze with thousands of sparkling holiday lights.
