    Nice hotel, clean rooms, friendly staff. Rooms are well kept and the overall hotel is in good order. Good workout room with many options. Bar and restaurant in the lobby have good food and friendly staff. Walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. Close to sports stadiums and some fun, more adult, activities.

    Stayed for 2 nights this past weekend. Hotel is in a great, clean, safe area downtown Minneapolis. Checked in with a breeze and very friendly staff. Rooms are a good size and quality. Great bath products from Aveda! Restaurant and bar in the lobby is great and loved the Martini! Would certainly return if I am in the area.

    First, let me say that downtown Minneapolis is a scary place to be. I walked through the business district, and felt unsafe. However, the Renaissance Hotel at the Depot is away from that area, and closer to the Mississippi River. The area is relatively quiet, and convenient to businesses as well as great areas to walk along and across the... More

    I stayed at this hotel for a conference. We were there for a week. The hotel staff is exceptionally nice. The hotel was spotless. Food was good. My only two complaints are that my room was a long, long way from an elevator. Also, for this kind of money, the hotel should provide some type of complimentary breakfast.

    My big takeaway from this stay was that this brand is not as high end as I thought it was. The pictures show the state of disrepair in the room - very unappealing. Makes you wonder what else they are not maintaining. At this price point it ought to be far better. I always say for a hotel to pass... More

    Fantastic property. Location is near the Guthrie, Mill Museum and Mississippi River park/walking bridge. We stayed downtown near Nicollete Mall last time in Minneapolis - this location is near more dining and attractions, in a part of town that is continuing to expand offerings. Room with two doubles was good size, hotel was busy with Sr. Olympics and weddings but... More

    My in-laws selected this hotel for an event that we were all attending in Minneapolis. Our family of four was there for 3 nights. Overall, it is an attractive and interesting hotel. Our room was a decent size although bathroom vanity area a little small. Our "view" was overlooking the roof. Housekeeping was a little erratic . . .had to... More

    We stayed here from 7/10-13th. From the time of our arrival until we left the staff was friendly, professional, and especially helpful with any questions we had. The room is/was well maintained throughout our stay. Though the room was slightly smaller than other Renaissance hotels we have stayed at, it wasn't an issue for us. The hotel was a convenient...

    We were very happy with the Renaissance Depot Hotel. We had a double queen room and for the rate of $97 a night, it was wonderful. We had no view and the hotel room was very basic but good enough for us as we were in town for a wedding and were not in the room very much. The breakfast... More

    The staff was very helpful and efficient. Our room had a nice little view of the falls on the river and was very comfortable. The bed was also comfortable and I liked the fact that the duvet covers were washed in between guests. It was a very clean hotel. The patio outside was a great gathering place at night with... More
