The hotel is very nice and convenient to most everything. They offer a free shuttle to the airport, as well as Mall of America. We had a car, but didn't really need it. We also caught the train to the Vikings vs Redskins games - very convenient and inexpensive. Joan (front desk) is a real gem. Always pleasant and super helpful. They offer a free hot breakfast, as well as a snack bar/room service (pizza, sandwiches, salads, desserts). Rooms are very spacious and a unique set up. I would definately stay here again.
We stayed 2 nights. The rooms are very nice. The heat didn't work as well, we set it at 72 and it only got to 68- my kids said they were cold, but the next night, they fixed it. Breakfast was nice, but the same each day. The bar area was also very nice

There is something magical about this hotel. Old-fashioned charm, yet as clean and as modern in its facilities as one could hope for. We love the quietness of the sleeping rooms. This was our second stay here and just being here was a highlight of our stay in Saint Paul.

I stayed at the Ramada hotel before and really like the general location. It is close to the Mall of America and the light rail station. Upon my check-in I saw men and women wearing furry costumes near the lobby and immediately thought "oh no".
I was pleasantly surprised that the furries convention offered no problems and everyone was quite friendly. In fact I was invited to go to the dance that Saturday evening. I didn't go but I saw the costumes and it was very funny to see people dressed up in very creative outfits.
I will definitely book a reservation there again on y next trip to Minnesota if there is an availability and the price is decent...with or without a Furries Convention.
