The Twin Cities is full of places to crash for the weekend, but Hotel 340 is an attraction in its own right. Located in the heart of downtown St. Paul, this ancient boarding house has the same trappings of historic glamour as other iconic hotels, only on a smaller scale. It's a humble gem at a good price, where staff is friendly and service comes in the spirit of a neighborhood bed and breakfast. Efficiency rooms are small but characteristically cozy, modern in the amenities but graced with furniture straight out of The Chronicles of Narnia. A cavernous lobby with an old-world fireplace and wrought-iron chandeliers leads to a bookish bar carved from gorgeous cherry hardwood.
