Great Expectations

Condé Nast Traveler recognizes the Saint Paul Hotel for upscale service since 1910.
The glorious Saint Paul Hotel is a perennial award winner.

“When you go to Disney World, you expect to see Mickey Mouse—not just one ear, but two. That’s their brand,” says Brian Schmechel, general manager of the Saint Paul Hotel. “And we have ours.”

A fern in the lobby has always been there. The doorman always checks your luggage nametag before welcoming you. Condé Nast Traveler ranked the hotel among the Top in the Midwest last year, its ninth time since 2008.

“It’s not just a one-time thing,” says Schmechel. “It’s consistent.”
