Jun 15, 2019 Per P St. Paul, MN

The room is ok and the internet service ok. Also a convenient location for the convention center. However, the water from the tap tastes very bad - I travel very frequently all over the world, but this is probably the stinkiest tap water I have ever experienced. I expect more from a hotel in this price range.

Great place to stay with the family! Minutes away from attractions and fun restaurants. The staff was friendly and happy to be at work! Would definitely stay here again. My boys loved the mini golf. Jacob was so helpful. I was afraid to drive back home due to the rain and he was very accommodating.

The location was close and convenient to outside locations. The things offered at the hotel was enough you didn't necessarily have to even leave the hotel to enjoy yourself. Great things to do for all ages and convenient walkway to SeaWorld.

Let me start by saying I have stayed at numerous DoubleTree and Hilton properties, and have always been impressed. This location however was a disappointment. The room had overused/discolored towels, hard sheets, a squished bug in room and 10 minute walk to lobby - just a few of the issues with this location. The one enjoyable aspect was the family friendly pool area with family games surrounding it. I definitely will not stay at this location again. Read less
