Where to stay in Saint Paul

Places to stay in St. Paul sit concentrated in the downtown area. The Lowertown Historic District, which includes some of the city's oldest buildings, makes a particularly attractive option. Hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts here can put you just steps from the Mississippi River, while the greater downtown area also offers apartment rentals and hostels. Staying downtown also puts you within walking distance of most of the city's prime attractions. Additionally, you'll find a handful of national-chain hotels on the east side of town near Interstate 494 / 694.

  • We were able to get the tour free the first weekend of the month by being Bank Of America users. Was a perfect length of a tour, house is huge. Parked on side of road and walked to house. We learned a lot and ladies were very nice.
  • Beautiful former home of the 19th century railroad tycoon James J Hill located within the historic summit avenue neighborhood. Tours are inexpensive and highly informative even beyond Hill and his families history.
  • We really enjoyed the nooks & cranny tour. It shows so much more of the house.
  • Antgousiastic tour guide :) made the experience very enjoyable. Overall, it was a great way to learn more about Saint Paul history.
  • I greatly enjoyed the walking tour. I learned a lot.
