The Alumni House is situated right on the campus of Macalester College and so is a great choice when visiting the college with a prospective student. Our queen bed was comfortable, the twin was rather hard. The included breakfast was very basic - home-made pastry, a choice of cereals, coffee and teas. The staff are very pleasant and accommodating, and the building is charming. Another significant advantage is the on-site parking, especially in the winter icy months when on-street parking, if nearby, can be challenging.
