My wife and I stayed here for 1 night before the Mpls. marathon. The room faced the street so we did have some traffic noise but it wasn't too bad. The room itself was clean and larger than I expected. Bed was huge and comfortable. We had drinks in the bar (nice service even though a wedding party was taking... More

My friends and family enjoyed our stay at the hotel! The rooms were somewhat small but very clean. They really could use a microwave in the rooms..... The staff were all very friendly. We had one issue with a "unhappy" waitress that left an unpleasant taste in our mouth. Otherwise everyone was GREAT! The hotel is located right downtown near... More

We recently stayed at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is stunning and loaded with history. It is an old train station converted into a hotel. There are historical artifacts and stories to read throughout the hotel. We stayed in a Historical Suite and couldn't have been happier. The room was classic with... More

False advertisement and VERY poor service. The waterpark is small and not worth the money. It was only opened during the weekend and our stay was during the week. When I called an complained they said that they claim to only have a whirlpool. The whirlpool is located in the waterpark and also only available on the weekend. Complete false... More

I was there in May for the Minneapolis marathon. They gave us a awesome rate for the beautiful rooms. The front desk staff were so nice and accommodating. They always helped us with directions and suggested good places to go in the city. They also warmed up my oatmeal in the kitchen at 5 in the morning on race day!... More

I stayed at the "The Depot" for one night business trip. I selected the hotel based on location to the Minneapolis Convention Center where I was attending a conference. Overall its is your standard solid Marriott property. Not sure what makes it a Renaissance property as others I have been too, seemed to have more going for them. I found... More

The Depot was the host hotel for the Minneapolis Marathon. Excellent location and very accommodating. Clean fresh rooms and very friendly staff. Downtown location is within walking distance of everything. (if you like to walk)
