#2 of 8 hotels in Stillwater
Travellers' Choice
Imbued with charm, history and intrigue, Lora pairs the Great North’s tradition of gracious hospitality with a past rich in folklore and fable. Located in the heart of this idyllic town just 30 minutes outside the Twin Cities on the banks of the St. Croix River, Lora is situated for tapping into Minnesota’s outdoor splendor, the region’s history and small-town charm. Housed inside a former brewery originally built in 1886, Lora will embrace, reveal, and make accessible to the public the building’s stone masonry, carriage way and the caves carved deep into the bluffs, offering a truly exceptional hotel experience that will capture the imagination of residents across the Midwest as well as travelers to the region. In keeping with Provenance Hotels’ commitment to integrating art into the hotel experience, the fables and folklore of the region’s indigenous and immigrant people will be re-imagined through contemporary works of art in Lora’s guestrooms and hallways.

We loved our stay at the Lora! We brought our dog to Stillwater for the first time, and she loved it and all the attention they staff gave her. They do a great job accommodating pets. They had a pet bed, dog bowls and treat already in the room before we checked in. The cute coffee shop had a book of photos with dog profiles and dog treats happily handed out by the staff. I hope my Penny makes the book! The parking in Stillwater is crazy busy, I suggest valeting at the hotel and not worrying about it.

The Lora Hotel is an womderful and unique place to stay. We Loved the history of it and how the stonewalls were incorporated into the structure and rooms themselves. The beds were comfortable and the employees were friendly and very helpful. We liked the location, which was at the end of the main street. Overnite parking was across the street and we enjoyed the fireplace and seating in front of the building to relax after our day.

This is a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Stillwater. What used to be a brewery is now a modern gem. Our room was immaculate and I couldn’t believe how quiet it was! It is within walking distance of anything you want to see in downtown. The bed was very comfy, the sheets were crisp white and smelled so fresh, and pillows comfy too. We would definitely stay here again.

If I could rate this a 0/5 I would. DO NOT stay here! Here’s why: we booked the most expensive room in the hotel for our anniversary and decided to bring our dog as they advertise themselves as a ‘dog friendly hotel’. They ARE NOT that hotel. Our dog barked while we were at dinner and they threatened to call animal control. This was apparently all based on one couple staying next to us that could hear a dog bark (in a dog hotel). So the hotel threatened to take our dog away, after barking. Dogs bark & this was supposedly a dog hotel so not sure where the problem came from but the amount of attitude we received from the hotel staff was out of control. It was so bad we elected to leave and not even stay. We also had other issues, like we sat down in the bar, there were two bartenders, no customers and waited over 20 minutes for an acknowledgment. Then our friends came and the whole thing was repeated, with an empty bar still. Honestly, my best advice is GO ELSEWHERE !!! If you like being treated like crap or want your dog taken away from you then this is your place.

The hotel was well very appointed and located at the end of the business district in the historic section of Stillwater. It was very well appointed with an adjacent coffee shop and a very good restaurant. Everything was easily within walking distance.
