The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Saint Paul Hotel, a historic grand dame, is so much a part of St. Paul that we sometimes wonder if the city was named after the hotel instead of the other way around. Originally opened in 1856, this property still boasts heaps of historic charm in a modern, urban setting. Major attractions like the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, the Xcel Energy Center and the Landmark Center are mere steps from the hotel’s entrance, and the St. Paul Grill is a frequent dinner destination for both hotel guests and locals. Plenty of people make the hotel part of their family tradition — a page on the hotel’s website details all the ways the hotel has played a role in important milestones like weddings and anniversaries — but it’s just as popular for long weekends and quick escapes.
