Overall Score5.0/ 5
I stayed at Days Hotel on University Ave. in St Paul near the U of M. Friendly staff and used the shuttle to go back and forth to the hospital. That saved me parking fees. The room was very nice and clean. Enjoyed my stay with Days while my husband was in the hospital., The breakfast was also great every morning. Loved it.
