The Saint Paul Hotel
The Saint Paul Hotel is a luxurious Minneapolis landmark with a century of stories woven into its fabric. It has played host to gangsters and presidents — JFK stayed here — to ballrooms and banquets, all while maintaining its status as the best address in the city. Today, it combines old world European glamour with a central location, just a short walk from the picturesque Rice Park. With fine dining, ample meeting and events space, and impeccable service, The Saint Paul Hotel remains a historic heart of city life.
- Snuggle up in one of 255 elegant guestrooms overlooking the Landmark Center
- Sip traditional afternoon tea in the lobby, with English cakes, sandwiches, and scones
- Relish classic American fare cooked to perfection by award-winning chefs at the St. Paul Grill

Whether you want to recharge after a busy day of shopping or simply immerse yourself in the lavish opulence of turn-of-the-century Europe — all grand marble staircases, crystal chandeliers, and the chance to have tea like the Queen of England — a stay here will have you feeling like royalty. Its design is the work of architect Allen H. Stern, who also created New York’s Grand Central Station, merging Italian architecture with classic English gardens to great effect.

The 255 guestrooms each have their own individual décor. Expect dark woods, rich fabrics, and 300-thread-count sheets, some on four-poster beds, with ornate furniture completing the traditional character of these rooms. You can sip your morning coffee overlooking the Landmark Center or Rice Park, or upgrade to a corner suite for an even more impressive vista.
After breakfast, go down to the concierge desk in the lobby and let the friendly staff help you plan your trip using the hotel’s complimentary local transportation. If you’d rather burn off some vacation calories, head upstairs and detox your body in the 24-hour rooftop fitness center.
The Saint Paul Hotel offers three sublime restaurants and bars, whether you fancy settling into an armchair to enjoy your favorite cocktail at The Lobby Bar or testing out your etiquette with afternoon tea. If you’d rather skip the social life and kick back in your room instead, room service is available 24 hours a day.
The St. Paul Grill – One of the finest restaurants in the Twin Cities, The St. Paul Grill features modern American fare, including steak and swordfish, accompanied by a creative cocktail list if you prefer a kick from a Minnesota mule or want to spice it up with a bourbon-and-bitters-based Lion’s Tail.
The M ST. Café – This cozy space is open for breakfast and lunch with a menu including à la carte breakfast items, omelettes, and classic comfort food like burgers, signature wild rice soup, and a California club sandwich, to name a few.
The Lobby Bar – Order a hand-crafted cocktail or a glass of your favorite vintage and spend a little time people watching at The Lobby Bar.
Enjoy the buzz of the busy hotel lobby while perusing the morning papers, chill out or work out at The St Paul’s health and fitness center, or indulge in a decadent afternoon tea complete with antique chinaware and five courses of cake.
In downtown St. Paul, you’re a 25-minute drive from The Mall of America, which caters to all your shopping needs and has plenty to keep the kids entertained, including SEALIFE and Nickelodeon Universe. A short stroll into the city, you’ll find a plethora of museums and art galleries, not to mention historical sites like the Historic Fort Snelling and Alexander Ramsey House.
