Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mandy19 Excellent location but no continental breakfast.
The room was close to the venue for our concert which was great. The staff was outstanding!! ( They called shortly after our arrival asking if everything was satisfactory) The pool was tiny and the hot tub seemed to have an over-abundance of chlorine and there was no breakfast provided whatsoever. Overall, great stay. Worth the $

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mominmn Quick Trip to St. Paul
I came up for a quick trip to St. Paul for a two day seminar and stayed one night at this hotel. The check-in process was fast and efficient, parking was easy to find. I stayed on the top floor and there was never a long wait for the elevator. The halls and rooms were clean. The tv worked well. The gym was clean (but smaller than I thought). The restaurant downstairs was great. I'd recommend this hotel anytime!! -- casual business traveler in So. MN.

We usually stay at the Crowne Plaza but it was not available for the dates we needed so we booked the Holiday Inn instead. We are really glad we did. The hotel is much more convenient to the convention center and the pub downstairs is a Great bonus. The pool/hottub is great. The rooms are very nice and the hotel in general was very quiet during sleeping hours. The parking is convenient and the staff was very pleasant. We will be staying here from now on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Healthytraveler Great hotel and excellent staff.
I've stayed in this hotel for the past five years when I attend a convention at the St.Paul River Centre. The hotel is conveniently locataed to the convention center and the in-hotel restaurant/bar is excellent, as is their room service. I recently had a stay there with a temporary disability. The hotel staff was very accomidating and transported me to the convention center each day in their suttle. The hotel staff was very friendly and accomidating and I would hightly recommend this hotel to anyone. One thing of note, because of the hotel's convienent location to the arena, this hotel becomes very crowded and busy when there is a hocky game. Even with the increased partying going on in the hotel, I didn't find anything disruptive and had no trouble sleeping. During this time the hotel lobby and restarant/bar becomes very crowed, however this didn't seem to slow down my room service at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hockey Fan 2014 Lost & Found
The location and rooms were excellent. I did have the misfortune to forget my iPad charger and truck key in the room. Within 2 hours I had phoned the desk. A co-worker still at the hotel waited for the staff to get the charger from my room and the co-worker mailed it to me. When I received it it did work but it was not the one I left in my room. I believe staff took the easy approach and grabbed one from lost and found, not wanting to check the room. A little disappointed they have such a great location that a couple of extra steps would have made a huge difference.

We were there for a hockey weekend. We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Downtown St. Paul. The front desk staff was very friendly when we checked in. They were able to accommodate our request for a late check out. The location is perfect if you are attending an event at the X and many local places to go for food and drink. We are planning to make this Holiday Inn our place to stay when we are attending events in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gina2414 Great stay!
I booked this room on a whim to make it to a day game at the xcel. Even though check in wasn't util 3, they got me a room before noon. Parking was an extra fee, which I wasn't super excited about, but it was no more than you would pay anywhere else less than a block away from the xcel. The rooms are a little small, but they were clean and the beds were pretty comfortable. Even the comforter looked and smelled like it had just been washed. The staff was very friendly. If I ever need a place to stay for a Wild game or concert again, I will be staying at this place. And the Liffy downstairs is great, and within walking distance from all the great bars, I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scottish Kevy Great customer service
After having my flight cancelled and my luggage lost by the airline my trip got off to a bad start and I was telling the staff about what had happened at check in. The next morning a note was slid under my door telling me the hotel were sorry to hear about my flight and luggage problems and they had arranged a free breakfast for me. I thought that was a wonderful thing to do for a customer as I never expected a hotel to go out of their way to do something like that when it wasn't even their fault and the guy at the desk was also kind enough to give us 1 night free parking. Also, when I first got to the room there was a hand written note from the housekeeper welcoming us and telling us to enjoy our stay. I've done ALOT of travelling and I have never came across such warm and personal customer service. The bar downstairs was wonderful. Great food, great service and fantastic atmosphere and the location couldn't have been more perfect. All in all the best hotel experience I have ever had and like I said, I do ALOT of travelling. Thank you so much.

This hotel was horrible and over priced. Small rooms and small beds. Not so much run down as old and outdated. Rooms were so tiny. No queen beds. Just not worth the money. Spend a few bucks more next time do I can get what I'm paying for and stay else where. Very disappointed

We chose this hotel for its close proximity to the Xcel Energy Center. After walking out of an event and into the cold winter air, it was so nice to just cross the street and be at our hotel. Rooms were nice and clean. The bar/restaurant on the main level was nice and handy. Would stay here again. My only complaint, I think it should be stated at time of reservation or time of check in that you will be charged for parking. I was alarmed to see it on my bill.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mitty702 Great service but thin walls
I chose this hotel for its proximity to the work I was doing in town. The price was great and the hotel is really nice with a friendly staff and close to restaurants. However, the exterior wall or window must have been paper thin because I could hear every truck that drove by all evening until traffic calmed around 9 pm, but then when it started to snow around 3 am I heard every snow plow and sanding truck that drove by.

This is the second time I have traveled to St. Paul and have stayed at this hotel both times. The staff is kind and helpful. I have encouraged anyone who is visiting the area to stay at this hotel.

We came down for the North Star College Cup. Of course the location is perfect. We had a lovely room which was fresh and clean. The Winter Carnival and parade in downtown St. Paul added to the fun. With all the hockey fans I was wondering if it would be noisy for sleeping but it was very quiet. The Liffey bar rocks and the house cabernet is delicious along with the late night french fries. The hotel staff was very accommodating and had extra security for the hockey tournament. No problems at all. Very fun and I want to stay there again soon!!!

We visited the lounge before the game and had great service and good drinks. After the hockey game the service and food were excellent but the drinks were watery--little alcohol. Loved being right across from the WILD venue. Weather was frigid but the rooms were nice and toasty when we go into them.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DavidHouston Great Housekeeping, location and bar... but
Stayed for a week at Holiday Inn. Housekeeping and bar is great as is location. Front desk a hit or miss -- sometimes friendly - sometimes not.
Stayed for 7 nights, 6 nights prepaid and 1 night on my points. I spoke to the front desk 3 times about making sure my points were used for the last night -- all to no avail. Monday there was a charge on my CC for Friday night -- rather than the night for points. It's all rather frustrating -- especially since I reminded front desk numerous times in my stay.
Not sure if I'll ever return to this hotel....

If you are attending anything at the Excel Energy Center is is RIGHT ACROSS the street. Could NOT be closer! Ask for a room that faces the Excel and you will have a great view. Many nice bars and eating establishments within walking distance as well. I recommend the turkey dinner at McGovern's! Also within walking distance for the MN Science Museum and the MN History Museum. All the venues we took in on our trip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ZimmCouple Clean Rooms with uncomfortable beds
Overall our experience at the Holiday Inn was enjoyable. We were granted our early check-in and late check-out requests. Staff was very friendly!! The room was larger than expected and very clean.
The only drawback of our stay was the bed; horribly uncomfortable - all the springs were felt. Also, lack of pillows to even fit across the head of the bed. However, we just caught up on our lost sleep once home!

I have to stand there at the front desk for more than 5 minutes without the lady at the front desk even looking at me and sensing of my presence. I know thar she is very busy answering all the calls left and right but at least tell me that she will be attending to my needs next, something like I will be right with you in a minute. The manager should realize that every morning is a heavy traffic hours , because everybody is trying to check0in or out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mn_family Close to downtown, but small and noisy.
We booked this hotel because we wanted to be next to the Science Museum. It was great for that purpose. King rooms were spacious but our 2-bed room was quite cramped and the beds ARE doubles and not queens. Lots of loud early morning trucks and traffic. Pool and pool area is very small. Parking is additional cost, but right next to the hotel, breakfast is not free, but coffee is. Restaurant is nice and good food, but the service was slow. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. This is a great hotel for seeing the downtown sites, but not for "hanging out" in the hotel.
