Pros: the continental breakfast was very good with lots of variety.
Cons: Bigger parking lot
Location: no nearby restaurants to walk to I was disappointed I had to get in my car to get a bite to eat.
I was impressed with the cute d├ęcor of the hotel but wished the pool area would have been open until 11pm for adults. Parking in the area seemed scarce and I questioned if this may be a poor area when read signs warning that theft or damage to my vehicle while parked in their lot was not their responsibility. The room was clean comfortable and conveniently located for meeting I had the next morning I would stay their again.

Long Weekend

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: All of it especially the location and neat historic info we learned about it.
Cons: The bathrooms by the pool were a bit dirty
Location: We went to beer fest at the fair grounds but we had people got to the zoo. the location was great and within walking distance to both these places.
The hotel was great and very unique. It was a great location for what we needed and where we were going for the weekend. I would definitely stay here again and plan on it next year when we come back for the same event.

Great to be that close to the State Fair grounds.

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: I loved the fact it was an old train station. Having train cars outside and tracks inside was so different.
Cons: we turned in to the first parking lot, did not see the main entrance. Could be made more clear.
Location: State Fair grounds and Midway Stadium for the Saints were both in easy biking distance.
Wonderful staff, very good breakfast, clean and a unique setting.

Great hotel!

Posted Jun 7, 2014
This hotel was so cool with it being an old train repair shop. The old beams, rails and structure were used to make this hotel unique.

OK stay

Posted Jun 4, 2014
Pros: Was close to were we had to be the next day.
Cons: Clean carpets! :)
Staff pleasant, but room not clean. hair on floor and in tub. Our feet were black from walking in our room. But hey, 100.00 don't get you much these days! Suspicious characters were plenty. I did see a maintainance man picking up abandoned towels in the hall, so was nice to see someone care. Lotsa hair in pool. We were put in a room next to the pool, and as we have no kids, we found it very noisy.

Nice hotel, good location

Posted May 24, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: It was fine. It wasn't fancy but it filled our need.
Location: We ate at the Shamrock and the Louisiana Cafe. Recommend both!
We stayed at this hotel because it was in the neighborhood we were visiting. It was a great location to get to the places in St. Paul we were going. The hotel and surrounding buildings used to be part of train station. It was a positive way to repurpose great architecture. The breakfast buffet was very good. For the price this was a good hotel.

Unique place

Posted May 10, 2014
Pros: Unique place. Great renovation with nice pool/hot and plenty of indoor spaces. Rooms vary in size and space. Comfortable.
Location: Interior space in the hotel is fun for the whole family. Near Fairgrounds and free Zoo
Have not stayed her for several years and was glad to see they had improved the area and maintained the spaces. has a nice breakfast.

Beautiful building but it was awful.

Posted Apr 23, 2014
The building was really cool. I think it's an old train station. However, the heating/cooling system was horrible. I had the room set at 65 and it was at least 75 also humid. I could hear the people next to me clearly as their voices carried through the venting system. There was also a machine noise I could hear in my room making it hard to sleep.

Weekend

Breakfast could have been better. Sour milk & waffles didn't taste right. Orange juice warm.
