The InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront Hotel

Our Symposium hotel is in the heart of the Saint Paul business district, close to the cultural and culinary highlights of the city and within easy reach of the state capitol, the cathedral, the Minnesota History Center, Minnesota Public Radio, the Fitzgerald Theatre (home of the Prairie Home Companion radio show), and a variety of historical sites.Saint Paul Skyline

The mighty Mississippi River flows past and extends to the horizon in both directions, offering remarkable views from most rooms in the hotel. A river walk directly below the hotel will appeal to both walkers and runners. From the hotel front door, cross the Wabasha Street bridge (seen extending over the river at right) to reach Harriet Island, home of paddleboat tours, picnics and local music festivals.

A special discounted rate of $169 per night, single or double occupancy, will be available to all APH symposium attendees. To receive the guaranteed rate, reservations must be made before the cutoff date of August 18. We expect this event to sell out early, so make your reservation now.

To book a room at the APH Symposium rate, visit, or call the hotel reservations department directly at 651-292-1900 or toll-free at 866-686-2867. Be sure to identify yourself as a registrant at the APH Symposium to ensure that you get the group rate.

The fine print: Guest room rates are subject to applicable state and occupancy taxes (currently 13.625%) in effect at the time of check-in. Cancellations must be made 72 hours prior to arrival date in order to avoid a charge for the first night's room and tax. Reservations may be cancelled only by calling the hotel directly at 800-424-6835 or 651-605-0197 to obtain a cancellation number.


The Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is located on the river between Minneapolis and St. Paul and serves both cities. Fourteen commercial passenger airlines provide service to and from MSP. The Intercontinental Hotel is 15-30 minutes from the airport by taxi or shuttle, depending on traffic.

A range of services offers travelers transportation to and from the airport. Taxi, limousine, van and shuttle services, and car rental companies all operate at MSP. Public transportation is available through Metro Transit, which provides both light rail and public bus service within the Twin Cities metropolitan area. The light rail goes from the airport to downtown Minneapolis and from there to downtown St. Paul. A light rail stop is located just a block from our symposium hotel.
