Hotels St Paul - The Top Hotels in St. Paul - The Saint Paul Hotel, Hotel 340

city center business located

While St. Paul, Minnesota is largely overshadowed by its twin city, Minneapolis, it receives a vast amount of visitors completely independent of its big sister, some of which is due to tourism or business, and a lot more due its position as the state capital. St. Paul is also the seat of Ramsey County. It has a population of 287,151, making it a large city in its own right. Some of the attractions of the city that helps to bring in both regional and national visitors are the Xcel Energy Center, Science Museum of Minnesota and the Minnesota Wild National Hockey League team. Topping the list of attractions in the city, however, is the ST. Paul Cathedral, originally established as a log chapel, but is now one of the most beautiful and well-known Roman Catholic cathedrals in the United States. In addition to leisure visitors, St. Paul receives many business travelers who come for one of the large corporations headquartered in the city, such as Ecolab and Lawson Software.

Although hotels in St. Paul can be found throughout the city, most are located in a hotel district located between the junction of I-94 and I-35E and the Mississippi River.
