I liked that the check out time was noon. That was really convienent for us. I also really like the front desk ladu, she was very personable and she helped us when we had trouble.
VERY friendly staff, clean rooms, very comfortable beds/pillows, convenient location to highway, stores, restaurants, reasonable price
I loved the room. We were on 2nd floor and I loved looking across the lot at the restaurant and all it lites. The fireplace was great along with the seating and the breakfast was exceptional.We were there 3 nites. every was great
Nice, cozy room Printer at computer station would not work, had to go down the road to Office Depot
not too hot in the pool area Too hot everywhere except pool area
Location When booking the room was supposed to have a king bed and a pull out sofa, the room only had a king bed
Comfortable bed. Nice breakfast. I little pricey.
Clean, quiet and friendly service with good breakfast No
Location was excellent Showing some age in pool area

Friendly staff, breakfast included. Group across the hall yelling at each other. I realize this isn't a hotel issue, but my group was freaked out and made sure to double lock our door.
Location Could hear people talking and the tv in the next room. Could here the plumbing whenever our neighbors used it.
It was convenient. The swing outside was nice too.
Located near restaurants and shopping Toilet was not working properly

Staff was great. Rooms were very nice. Breakfast was great too. Great value.
We liked that it's close to the freeway -- easy on, easy off. And we really loved the breakfast in the morning -- so much better than a hotel's standard continental breakfast. Was a beautiful, luxurious little getaway for our little family (2 adults and a little baby).
Needed to be close to the hospital. Daughter was very ill. Didn't know how long we needed to stay. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Would recommend this establishment. Comfortable, clean rooms. Laundry available. Food was excellent. Thank you!
Very nice hotel, large rooms, fantastic included breakfast. The only downside was the highway traffic noise, which was inescapable. Request a room that doesn't face the freeway.
We like to stay at the Embassy because we like the made to order breakfast and the managers reception. The rooms are large and comfortable. We will return next year! My only complaint is that they give you only one wash cloth.
Everything Issues checking in
Once you check in, you may not want to leave until check out. Everything under one roof is provided. We were greeted in a friendly manner. Very nice atmosphere in the lobby and center courtyard. While a free shuttle was advertised, it had been booked by a whole company for 2 hours in the early morning. a little frustrating, but the staff did suggest alternate transportation (Uber) and that did get me to where I needed to go. The opportunity to eat a complimentary light snack and beverage was appreciated after the stressful I94 drive Corky's Pub was good food at a fair price, fast and efficient wait staff. Made to Order breakfast was wonderful from 6-9 am! Wonderful Chef! PARKING $$$ While absolutely no fault of the hotel, the construction mess around the Capitol is very stressful. People drive too fast and a bit rudely. Be prepared and drive attentively. Not enough parking, It is quite expensive to park around this area.$15/day in the hotel lot for registered guests. Arrive early to get a spot.
This hotel is extremely clean; modern; king room was plush. The restaurant was not up to par w/rest of hotel.
Very comfortable bed and room. Breakfast was excellent and very affordable. Great service by all staff!
The beds were amazing - very clean room No continental breakfast
The front desk staff was always courteous and helpful. The food was healthy and oh! so delicious! The chefs are great! They smile and speak. They are masters. I really hated to leave! I want an extended return trip. I will always stay at that 4 points. However, another guest told me that all 4 points offer the same great service and good time! They are decorated in wonderful neutral colors. Housekeeping was kind too! Location, location, Location! It is close to shops that you really want and need to go too. The television lounge is a novel idea. The corporate gathering places were well lite and comfortable. It felt like home without looking homely! That it was time for me to leave.
I've stayed at this property before, so I had no problem booking it again when I was going back to the area. The shuttle schedule is not always followed - when the hotel is busy and they have people to pick up from the airport, they will let you wait at the nearby mall until they get around to picking you up. That was not pleasant as the shuttle to the Mall of American runs every couple of hours.
comfort of bed and cleanliness of entire facility no free continental breakfast
Website said free parking and airport shuttle, but where told upon arrival that the website was misleading and the manager was personally working on changing the wording but did not offer anything to make up for the fact that is why I booked with them and they charge more for parking than the near by airport. Also rooms are very small with little to no room for moving around beds and furniture.
The beds were comfortable The people in the room next to us where talking so loud it sounded like they were in our room. It was well after 11:15pm and they were still going strong. We had children with us and a long drive the next day. This was very disappointing for us and for the money we spent on a one night stay made us made. Our kids are still yakking about how loud those people were. They would for sure be kicked out of any campground they went to. If we stay with you again we will be sure to ask for a room with no adjoining door between the two rooms and no one next to us. We don't need perfect silence but sleep would have been good. The next morning they were back at it early.
Everything in the hotel is beautiful and tasteful. Our room was great, bed was comfortable, loved the robes. One of the elevators was out of order, we mostly used the service elevators to get up and down. We were not particularly impressed with the staff. They were adequate, not really cordial. Pokemon players outside at night were creepy.
Very friendly staff. Top-notch accommodations. Excellent location in the heart of St. Paul.
Historic elegance No
Great location when attending an event at the Excel Center.
Convenience to Wilkins auditorium It was not as nice as I expected. The room was average. Bedding average hard bed.
Beautifully maintained historic hotel in quiet downtown St Paul. Very clean and quiet rooms Need a regular fridge and expensive snacks.
Central location for the events and activities we attended. Expensive
You can see they put thought and effort into the decor. The beds were very comfortable.. The staff was very helpful and it was obvious they care about what they do. We especially appreciated help from Lori at the front desk. She got us information about an event in Milwaukee and then found a detailed map of that area, showing one-way roads. She was even able to tell us how much parking was going to cost. The hotel is a great value. We would definitely stay there again.
Updated room Very clean Free coffee and water Parking not included
The old world feel about the place. Attentive staff. Exercise facilities. Reasonable cost.
Charming Hotel! Beautiful, romantic atmosphere. Multiple lounges with plenty of space to hang out. I had a king delux, with 2 beds, and 2 bathrooms! The beds were really comfortable, and the full kitchenette was much appreciated.The gym and pool were top notch (St Paul Athletic club) The free breakfast was great. Location is 4 blocks to Excel center or Science museum. The window blinds were not enough to fully darken the room, I would have appreciated curtins too.
The room - spacious with nice TV, and love the hardwood floors The lobby area - beautiful architecture, comfy chairs The staff - not very helpful, couldn't suggest places to go eat other than "go to Minneapolis - there's nothing good here" Shower - very small Location - granted it was a Thursday, but the hotel felt dead and there was no one at the bar, so staff from the front desk would walk over to the bar to serve people as they came up, and when we finally tried to go out every place nearby was closed or practically empty
I love the fact that you use an actual key to get in your room. I love how classy it is yet simple and humble. The view of downtown St Paul is amazing. you are right outside of the lightrail which is very convenient if ur flying or taking the bus. oh yeah and the man I brought. That was the best part! The free breakfast was free for a reason. soft boiled eggs or boiled. The waffle tasted old. fruit was frozen and not fresh. So as it thawed it wilted.
They were doing construction at 530 am
Close to I94 and easy to find. Quiet location with beautiful lake. Having Denny's next door was so nice. I rented 2 rooms, one for my sister & 89 year old Mother and one for myself for 2 days. We went site seeing on Sat. and when we came back in the evening, my sister's & Mother's room was not locked. My Mother put her hand on the door handle and the door just swung open. My sister went to the front desk and someone came with her to the room. Nothing was taken and all seemed well but my Mother was shaken that the room was not secure. She was ill at ease for the remainder of our visit.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable. Towels and soaps were good quality. Bathroom needs updating
Comfy beds, quiet. A little dated. Not like it matters.
Bed was very comfortable.
Room was very small.
We choose this hotel because I was having surgery the next day close by. The king size pillow top bed was very comfortable. We had a Lakeview room and the view was nice. The windows opened too, so we could get a nice breeze. All the facilities were clean, staff was friendly. Great stay! There is NO complimentary breakfast, but there is a Dennys next door.
I loved the modern look of the hotel. The bedding was of good quality, which is a huge plus for me! We had a beautiful view of the river from our room. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to Xcel Energy Centre, which was our destination, so I liked the proximity of the hotel to the venue. Overall I was very happy with my one night stay.
We were given an updated room. While generally nice it was a bit cramped with two queen beds. The staff were friendly overall. A bit cramped even though it was a updated room. While the staff was generally friendly, getting someone to answer a phone at the front desk and the Valet was slow and frustrating.
Very clean rooms and beds were comfortable. We had a newly renovated room, it was small but very nice with a lovely view of the river. Good location. Staff was helpful. The cost of the room was more than I'd ever paid. I was also under the impression that the parking fee was included in the price of the room, which was not the case.
Doubletree was wonderfully comfortable and affordable! They even helped us check in several hours early after our red eye, so we could nap. Thanks for a great trip and a much needed sleep.
Friendliness of staff; comfort of bed!
The front desk staff was great especially a young woman who looks like the movie star from Juno...Ellen? Do not recall her name but she was fantastic and so helpful! No baggage help or bellman. Restaurant was only open limited hours and no room service. I would only recommend this hotel if the price is right and with certain limitations.
Smoky room no free breakfast poor service in restaurant bar
convenience, location, wonderful breakfast buffet. quality faciity
The restaurant inside the hotel was fairly good and quick. The rooms were cute and cozy. My bf loved the bed mattress. The lobby had a relaxing feel to it with the neutral tones and fireplace. Hotle has been updated with modern taste. The hotel is attatched to the skywalk system which was great. On the way back from the hockey game at the Excel Center, we walked through the skywalk. You never have to go outside in the cold, very clean in there.
This hotel is in the heart of St. Paul. Walking distance to the Excel Energy Center and many dining options. Room was clean. I would stay here again. Temperature control panel in the room did not work. Had to open the window in February to cool down the room.
Just fine Just fine
Cookies at check in, comfortable beds and pillows Waking up to a call from the front desk at 8:30 in the morning on a Saturday after being out late. Not many restaurants in the immediate area.
Great value for the money. Liked the shuttle to Mall of America. no
Minneapolis was a stopover for us, so it was convenient that this hotel was not far from the airport n/a
Very friendly staff. Comfortable beds Free breakfast Location-convenience Room amenities (mini-refridgerator) TV or in-room cable system not working very well
Internet access in room.
There was a problem after booking on KAYAK that the hotel was not notified of our arrival before we got there and we were given a reservation number that did not work. The staff was very competent in asking for what they needed and making multiple calls with getaroom.com (the customer service agent pervaded by the reservation by KAYAK) to ensure our booking on my behalf. Even though it took 20 minutes or more to check in, I never once was pressured to take care of the situation myself and they were concerned about me being double-billed should they just give me a room and take care of it later. They handled the process with perfection in a frustrating situation for a customer. I also loved the comfort of the bed! The TV in the room used settings making the picture too big for the screen, and I couldn't figure out how to fix it, but I did not seek help from the hotel to resolve the issue.
Walls are a little thin. Heard the neighbours radio at 445,called the front desk and they told us they would check it out. An hour later we could still hear it. Called again and the front desk said they would have their shuttle driver check it out. Lost a lot of sleep that night.
Free Shuttles, friendly, big rooms.
The. Shower temp was very variable. Hot to ice cold and back in a few seconds. We didn't get our wake up call. Otherwise we were happy with everything. The breakfast was great. Eggs, potatoes and sausage. Got a free mall of America coupon book.
I liked that there was a hot breakfast and that there was a fridge and microwave in the room. The eggs were disgusting. Hard boiled eggs would be a much easier and better solution. Surprised to see an old school tv in the room!
There was a minor problem with the air conditioning in our room. They were so fast in getting us a different room. Very polite! I've told everyone I know about the great experience. Not a thing
Clean, updated, location
The coffee was horrible. Either in room or lounge. Otherwise nice lounge and computer access. We went out for brkfst instead. Please write at least 15 words
Staff was great, very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean an very comfortable. Quiet location. We will stay there again next year!! Parking was not bad but was not great, had to park on the opposite end of our room. Breakfast was not bad either but not that great. Didn't have many choices for gluten free guests.
Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was a little dark and the TV didn't work
I usually don't stay at anything less then 4 stars. I was in Minneapolis on business and the weather was bad so I decided to stay the night instead of driving back to my home state of Iowa. I have rewards at Mariott and Hilton. The Hilton Garden Inn was full. There were not many options. I had never stayed at a Microtel and thought that surely the room would be clean. The lobby was dirty and it didn't end there. The room smelled of dirty feet and the blankets had cigarette holes in the blankets. The mattress was horrible. Would have had better sleep on a air mattress. Do not bother people. Better options in Twin Cities.
The location was perfect for where I needed to be for some personal business. The price I paid was discounted from the regular price. I think it was an okay value for the money I paid. Smaller than expected room size but I guess that's why they call it a microtel. Could hear my neighbors cell phone ringing/buzzing as the night stand it was setting on was attached to the wall. No refrigerator in the room so do not plan on bringing food or beverages back to the room.
i absolutely enjoyed its centralized location to so many attractions we were within 15 miles of the mall the zoo and even within reasonable distance from Mickeys Diner the room smelled like a wet ashtray even being on the first floorand clearly marked no smoking signs thankfully it didnt trigger my daughters asthma
The room was clean, had a flat screen TV, we could control the temperature in the room, and it had a complimentary breakfast. It was located near Sam's Club and was just an exit away from some shopping. You could hear planes flying overhead both day and night, the room size was very small, and there wasn't a place to eat the breakfast downstairs. We had to bring the food up to our room.
Price was great, bed was decent. Room was clean, but small which was fine for a place to sleep which is all I needed it for. Breakfast was decent nothing fancy but enough I was content. The shower head was really useless. I work with my hands with oil and the like. I got into the shower and the water really had no power and minimal amount of water came out. Temps were gold but if you can't get wet it dosent do anything good for you
The rooms were dirty. It may have been vacuumed but the faucets had large amounts of calcium deposits built up. Carpeting in the room and hallways were not in good shape. The paint on the walls was falling off. Inside the elevators door tracks you could see huge piles of dirt. I was there for two nights and room service did not make my bed or clean up between days. This was very disappointing compared to other Wyndham properties I have stayed at in the past.
Great property. Very comfortable. Staff was amazing. Every person we encountered was very friendly. Food was great. Room was clean and comfortable. I will come back. Planes woke me up at about 5 a.m. We had a late night out, so this wasn't the best.
too far away from airport
clean, newly remodeled, great breakfast, quiet
The beds are really comfortable. Front desk clerk very nice. I could not sit in the pool area, the chlorine smell is soooo strong it burns your eyes.
Comfortable, clean, nice rooms with desk and closet space, good breakfast, friendly staff. No complaints!
The staff allowed us to early register, continental breakfast an extra day and kept our luggage safe for 10 hours after check out. Amazing place. no elevator
No street noise. Very nice breakfast.
Interearing, historic building with really cool design. Very unique. Comfortable beds. Free parking. Free breakfast was decent. Had all the amenities I was looking for (pool/hot tub, business center). Decent location, depending on your needs. The main problem, and for me this was a big problem, was security. Our room was located right next to an exterior door in the very back corner of the hotel, which opens up to the back parking lot. We noticed right away that the lock was broke and so anyone could enter without needing a key card. This wouldn't have been a huge problem accept the door to our room did not shut and lock without pulling it tightly closed behind us. We also noticed this right away and made sure it was locked any time we left. The room cleaners, however, did not. After a day out we returned (through the unlocked exterior door) and could see right as we walked in that our hotel room door was noticeably ajar. We went in and made sure that none of our belongings were missing and that no weirdos were hiding in the closet, and very luckily everything was fine. The worst part was that the lady at the front desk, although very nice and smiley, seemed completely oblivious to the situation they put us in. When I told her about the broken lock on the exterior door she seemed shocked, then later went on to tell me that she actually ordered a new lock earlier that day. Call me crazy but one thing I really expect out of a hotel is at least a little bit of security and safety. I can't help but wonder what they would have done if anything had been stolen from our room. At any rate, if you're staying in room 118, make sure that all the staff know they need to take extra care to make sure your door is locked, or at least closed all the way.
The breakfast was good and the lobby had an interesting decor. The hotel pool was dirty. We found clumps of hair on the bottom and deflated ballons floating around. It rained the night we were there and the floor under the windows was wet. Remote from anything else in the area.
The size of the room and the helpful, friendly staff. The breakfast lady was great!
Was fine for a one night stay. Construction going on.
Good location for my needs. Very friendly staff. Clean room. Music in the courtyard area should be reduced or turned off at night.
Very convenient to daughter's apt. Easy to find room. Wonderful breakfast selections. Nice quiet rooms. This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and will do so again.
The staff was very friendly. Very pleasant environment. The bed was terrible.
I liked how spacious the room was, the free breakfast, and the parking was close to the entrance I didn't like that the room that I booked (King), wasn't what I received (Double Queen), The room was smoke free, but smelt like smoke as soon as you entered, and the room was so warm and had no way to control the heat other than 2 other temperatures. This was good for a one night stay, for which we used the room to get ready for a concert and sleep
The history and the look of the Hotel. The bed was not comfortable and must have been old. The room and hallways needed attention with some windex and a fresh coat of paint.
Easy to find, conferable and great location. The room was clean on the spot and service was quick. The front desk staff is not the best. It appears that they don't value business from Hotels.com. They also gave me the wrong room and the facility look as needs renovation.
Wonderful, caring staff. Clean, spacious, modern and comfortable rooms. Excelent shuttle service Good food with good prices.
I booked incorrectly for the park and ride package but the lady at the desk fixed it for me. She didn't have to but she did!! Always clean and quiet and the room service was prompt and soooo tasty! Bathtub was a bit shallow and the stopper leaked a little.
No one to bother you while you are there. No restaurant around area.
Everything looked clean. The pull out bed was a little uncomfortable.
The bed was comfortable and the bath/shower was nice. The facility included a pool and gym - Hotel is in flight path of airport - flights start at 4am. - No stores or restaurants within walking distance and coffee shop on-site is expensive. Found out breakfast wasn't included in my package. Even the less expensive hotels offer a continental breakfast. Tip: Be aware that upon arrival at airport, you have to call hotel for shuttle service. There was no indication of this on the reservation.
Everyone in the staff that we dealt we were awesome i don't think you could ask for a better hotel staff from the front desk ladies who were all very nice all of them!!! to the shuttle driver and the breakfast staff!! we had just spent 7 nights in the wilderness and it was very nice to see a staff that cared so much for the guests made the transition very easy and we forgot a wallet in the room and came back after already getting to the airport came back and the shuttle driver helped us look for it as well as the two front desk ladies so nice so awesome if I'm ever back in Minneapolis i will be coming back to this hotel theirs not enough words in the world to describe the friendliness of everybody there!!! thank you all so much!!
Adult swim from 10pm to 11pm Lame breakfast buffet
Room was clean and we had a mini fridge, microwave, desk, and dividing wall between living area and the bed. Shower had amazing pressure and great quality of water. Not enough parking because tour groups parked in parking lot because they stayed there before and after trip. We were told to park in handicap parking (as were the 4 people ahead of us). Breakfast was very unappetizing as the bananas were very brown, the oatmeal was watery...
The lobby and pool area was nice and beautiful. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were uncomfortable. There was mold in the bathroom and the spider. Super strong smell from pool chemicals. We won't be back.
Friendly staff Could have been cleaner
The staff was excellent - very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and the beds and furniture were comfy. Everything seemed very clean - no mystery stains. It was nice that they had a large container of cold water with fresh lemons in the lobby that you could have at any time. The breakfast was fine - the usual hotel fare. They had mopped the entire lobby floor at once, so we couldn't avoid walking on wet areas. One person in our party has to worry about slipping and falling, so it would be better if they mopped half and left half dry for people to use.
Fitness center, pool, and awsome breakfast. They ran out of milk so i couldnt have cereal.
Loved the location of the pool and the all day coffee and water. The staff was very accommodating and friendly.
Price Needs refurbishing.
