Hotels in Downtown St. Paul

Despite the greeting by a doorman in a top hat, there’s a delightful lack of pretense at this historic luxury hotel.

In a city full of chain hotels, this floating inn—a refurbished 1946 towboat—is an adventurous way to experience the mighty Mississippi. Permanently moored off Harriet Island Regional Park, the B&B’s four bedrooms and salon offer perfect views of the giant river barges gliding by.
