The Pioneer Press reports that The St. Paul Hotel made Travel + Leisure Magazine's list of "500 World's Best Hotels" for 2014. It is the only Minnesota hotel to make the list, and one of only three in the Upper Midwest.
The century-old downtown St. Paul landmark has won many awards, including 30 years on AAA's Four Diamond list.
Here's the blurb from Travel + Leisure.
Despite the greeting by a doorman in a top hat, there's a delightful lack of pretense at this historic luxury hotel. Yet it doesn't come at the expense of impeccable service (or a genuine Midwestern smile) -- you can order any international newspaper you like, and it will be waiting at your door each morning. Completed in 1910 by Reed and Stem, the architects behind New York's Grand Central Station, the hotel's lobby features Waterford chandeliers and a fireplace designed to encourage lounging. In the 254 guest rooms, reproduction furniture and heavy floor-length drapes complement the soothing palette of neutrals. The hotel is also home to a lush English garden, two restaurants, two bars, and a fitness center with panoramic views of the city and the Mississippi River.
