The Twin Cities’ top address simply oozes sophistication, from its elegant rooms with king-sized beds and plush chenille chairs to the wood-paneled bar lined with black and white portraits of local stars. This is where St Paul’s great and good come to have afternoon tea – or even to get married – and the hotel has hosted everyone from JFK to Charles Lindberg. The location is unbeatable for St Paul too, right across from Landmark Center cultural center and within easy walking distance of the river.
There’s no denying the loveliness of the Twin Cities: with their low crime rates and high levels of cleanliness, St Paul and Minneapolis regularly feature in lists of the best places to live in the US. But don’t mistake any of that for dullness. Oh no. These are places where people love life and live it to the full, packing out their cities with an enormous range of restaurants, bars and exciting things to see and do.
Of the two metropolises, Minneapolis is the more modern and lively. Here you’ll find dozens of parks, a gorgeous riverfront along the Mississippi and three of the country’s most major sports stadiums. Thanks to its cathedral and capitol buildings, St Paul is a little more stately and elegant.
Between Minneapolis and St Paul are more than two cities’ fair share of exceptional hotels. Below are our pick of the bunch: the ten best hotels in the Twin Cities.
