    Wonderful to see Neil Diamond, but the venue in Glasgow was a disaster. Long queues and took 20 minutes to get two bottles of water. Couldn't see on ground floor as the floor doesn't slope, couldn't s...  more »

    I actually flew to MN for a concert here (long story) from CO. It was very similar in feel and size to the Pepsi Center, which is located in Denver. The bathrooms were actually better, although the fo...  more »

    YOU KNOW ITS GOOD WHEN YOU“RE HOARSE AND CANT HEAR. Nice setup, fast checkin (they DO check purses), nice usher in section 126 john. Seats are small so you can't be timid about touching your neighbor....  more »

    I recently attended a Wild game with a good friend of mine who's in a wheelchair. I have to say that the accessibility services at the X were outstanding. It was a relative breeze getting through security, staff were super helpful in aiding us to find what we were looking for, and the wait staff on the club level at our handicap-accessible seating were world class. They greeted us right away after we got situated, took our food and drink order right then and there, and delivered our food to us. Fantastic service!

    Just Saw Tool. Great venue for a concert. Excellent acoustics. Great for hockey games. Facilities are clean. Service is fast. A bit on the expensive side but that's expected at a concert or game.

    Brought my parents to Game 5 of the 2017 Playoff Series with St. Louis. Sat them in the Audi on the Glass seats and let them hit the souvenir shop. Every staff member we encountered was helpful and courteous. The fans we sat near were awesome. The game...well we lost...however the experience wasn't wasted. In my opinion, the best place to take in an NHL game anywhere in the world.

    It was way too hot. They didn't turn on the air conditioning until half way through the concert. Also no large screens so only view was what you could see from your seat. Sound was great fhough!

    I saw Tool here and it ruled. The venue is huge. Good view from most seats. It was clean and easy to get around, inside and out. Thumbs up for scoring such a huge act.

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.
