The St. Paul Hotel in Wooster started life in the early 1900s as the CCC Hotel and survived several iterations as a hotel, an apartment complex and warehouse. But in 2011, it reopened as the St. Paul Hotel, a sleek, stylish, high-class boutique hotel with top-notch amenities.
The lobby is small compared to other hotels, and visitors check with helpful and friendly staff at a freestanding kiosk. The bank of elevators is just steps away. Natural light floods a tiny seating area, containing a pair of sofas by a long, low fireplace and a single table with a few chairs. Do step into this room and turn toward the entrance: in the wall, you'll see a beautiful stained-glass window depicting Saint Paul. It's stunning.
Upstairs, the guest rooms are lavish and impeccible, with clean-lined furniture and a modern color scheme. Dove-gray walls are a soothing background to pops of orange and white. A bedroom area houses a platform bed with upholstered headboard and fine linens, and a seating area features a small sofa, an arm chair and a large, flat-screen television. Bathrooms are decked in granite and include tile showers with multiple showerheads and heated floors. Oh, and the bathroom mirror? It has a television in it. Guests can spruce up without missing their favorite shows. It's frivolous and exceptionally fun.
Starting at $110 per night for a room, a stay here is a relatively affordable luxury—one we highly recommend.
