On a business trip with expectations of amentities on site only to find the hotel was under construction and the pool, bar and restaurant were all closed. In addition, the business center was unable to assist me with completion of tasks as I could not access the internet or print. In addition, my bathroom ceiling flooded during my stay, though,...

Excellent hotel located right next to Capitol. Our room had a breath taking view of beautiful Basilica of St Josephat. Bonus is the free shuttle to local attractions & restaurants. Great location to explore all of St Paul.

Pool was closed. Had a 3-year old. Was not notified prior to check-in and construction was planned. A/C didn't work correctly, was 85 Degrees in the room at one point. Temperature fluctuated from cold to hot on faucets on their own.

I love this hotel. The staff is AMAZING, the location is great for the TC Medtronic race weekend, the rooms are wonderful. I felt very well taken care of. This was my second stay, and I have already booked my next. I am so happy I came across this beautiful little gem.

Best Western Plus Capitol Ridge was under going serious construction when we stayed. However, we hosted our wedding block here, and we couldn't have been happier! The manager went above and beyond, as did all his front desk staff. Housekeeping was very courteous and cheerful. We felt welcomed and well taken care of. Renting a shuttle through them was also...

The staff was excellent in handling the remodeling in the lobby area as we checked in. They were very courteous and gave us a summary of the work being done. The rooms were spotless and the beds were delightfully comfortable. It was a great choice to stay.

Great place to stay. Central to the airport the metro, sports events, sight seeing. Helpful and friendly staff. In town to celebrate my daughter's birthday with her wife and good friend and to see Blake Shelton. Awesome concert - awesome time at Mall of America, trip down the Mississippi and seeing the beautiful country side so lush and green.

Starting with the location- it's a pretty great location. You can see the stunning Cathedral of St Paul (not to be confused with the capitol building) from the south side of the hotel. You're right next to the interstate, which was a good thing since it can't be heard from inside the hotel and it makes for easy travel. The...

I booked this hotel based on price and location. Come to find out, upon arrival, that the hotel is under construction and the water would be shut off from midnight until 4 am. They did not get the water turned back on until closer to 6 am, preventing me from taking a hot shower prior to my business meeting and...
