Make yourself at home in one of our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in St. Paul and get to know the vibrant capital city of Minnesota and one-half of the metropolitan area known as the Twin Cities. Follow the mighty Mississippi River to Historic Fort Snelling, where the city was born, and to the high-tech exhibits in the Minnesota History Center.
Climb the spiral marble stairways to the top of the State Capitol for views of the riverfront and the towering spires of the other Twin City, Minneapolis. Our St. Paul hotels are close to the Minnesota History Center, where you can rediscover hometown musicians Bob Dylan and Prince before inspecting the inside of a replica grain elevator. Rent a kayak and paddle along the lazy Mississippi River for spectacular views of the glass-and-steel riverfront. Beach the kayak on Raspberry Island and enjoy a lunchtime picnic.
Our hotels in St. Paul are just a short walk from the bustling restaurant scene on St. Peter Street, where the reasonably priced culinary options range from Italian comfort food to gourmet burgers. Step out from one of our St. Paul hotels and explore the independent shops along Grand Avenue, where you can buy everything from gold watches to gourmet doggie treats. End the evening with martinis or craft beers on St. Paul St. After a good night’s sleep in our St. Paul hotels, take a morning stroll past the elegant Victorian homes of Summit Avenue, once home to authors F. Scott Fitzgerald and Sinclair Lewis. Spend an afternoon with the kids at Fort Snelling listening to the crack of musket fire as costumed interpreters recount the city’s 19th-century beginnings.
Book a room at our Holiday Inn Express St. Paul hotels to immerse yourself in the year-round charm of the Twin Cities.
