We stayed one night, attended the Prairie Home Companion show in the Fitzgerald Theater (only 5 blocks away), and had a very nice time. The hotel is in downtown St. Paul, very convenient, easy to get to off the highway, reasonable valet parking ($27/night).
"A very comfortable hotel with excellent amenities"
My daughter and I stayed at the Embassy Suites in Downtown St Paul while we attended the US Figure Skating Championship events. The staff was polite and helpful, the room was very clean, and we enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and restaurant. My daughter particularly enjoyed seeing Fred and Ethel every day - two ducks who live in the ponds inside the hotel. Part of the reason that we chose this hotel was because they offered a shuttle to and from the event center. Getting a shuttle ride to the center was very easy, but getting one back to the hotel was a bit more difficult. We ended up taking a taxi a few times, but at less than $6 for the ride, it was no big deal. We would happily stay at this hotel again.
I didn't expect a microwave and fridge. Those were a nice touch. They even provided a free shuttle to the venue.
The fitness center was nice. Don't get the buffet though. Not worth it. Many breakfast places close by that are cheaper with better food.
Quaint former working boat on the Mississippi, pleasant innkeeper, comfy bed. Breakfast was delicious! It is difficult for people with physical problems for the walk down to it and to navigate stairs on it. Taxi to downtown is reasonable.
