Great hotel. Location to Xcel was ideal and not a bad walk at all. Overall the stay was excellent we had a king room which was on the small side but well appointed and comfy bed. The highlight was the restaurant in the hotel. The citizen had a really good breakfast and drinks. Service was 10/10 and price was to be expected in a hotel setting but with everything being so good it didn’t seem to bother me. Downtown Saint Paul was a 3/10. Dirty many many streets under construction drug activity witnessed in broad daylight. The farmers market was the only redeeming thing about it we had a good time there. Stay around the xcel and down 7 th street to feel “safe” hotel can’t help any of this so the stay 10/10 but the area just a couple of blocks to the east is not good.
