We had the opportunity to vacation in Minneapolis with our daughter and stayed at the Depot Renaissance. it was a great experience. Check-in was efficient even though we arrived early. The room was spacious and comfortable. I cannot say enough for the location which got us to every activity we wanted through out the Minneapolis area. We have been long... More

Everything was very nice. Clean room, pleasant and very helpful staff. On site restaurant with good service and food. Hotel was convenient to where I was going. I didn't have a car so I am unsure of the parking situation.

This is a tough hotel to review. You want to rate it well but there are just too many issues to warrant doing so. First, it may be the loudest hotel in the U.S. I was on the street side close to the main entrance on the 2nd floor so I knew it wouldn't be quiet. But, the noise begins... More

I love Marriott and I love Renaissance. While we had a fine three-night experience here, I can't say I was wowed. It was clean, modern, efficient, and all that. It just didn't sizzle. That's probably because this hotel's location I believe tends to make it more convention and tourist oriented. In any event, check-in was efficient, and my wife's Platinum... More

We had a 3 hour normal drive turn into a 5 hour pouring rain, traffic filled trip, just to stay overnight while traveling through. Unfortunately our bags on the back rack of the car, we thought were packed water tight in tarp and bags which did not survive the pouring rain. The overhang and check in could not have been... More

WE have had over a dozen incredible stays at The Depot over the last 6 years and it just keeps getting better and better. The management, the staff at the restaurants and front desk are just incredibly friendly and helpful. Besides being beautiful, the buildings are historic yet extremely well maintained. Liz and Brittney are always helpful with taking care... More

Downtown location. Very clean and friendly. Nice workout room. Full service with good food and cool bar. Great little patio out back. Only a few blocks from Nicolette Mall Area with great little eateries and bars. Best value and highly recommend when in MSP.

The Depot Renaissance is located near the riverfront area with many restaurants, biking, walking, and running opportunities near by. The hotel is part of an old depot which provides for some interesting historical context. The hotel is a short walk from the light rail station providing access to the airport and Target field. However, the rooms, service, and amenities are... More

Everyone from the front desk to the valet were wonderful. The in house restaurant (Charlie's) served great food! Our waitress, Amy, was very helpful and attentive. It was walking distance to shop downtown or walk over the bridge to an area where everyone seemed to be out walking their dog or riding a bike because the weather was beautiful.

I recently stayed at this hotel for four nights and was extremely pleased. The rooms are very clean with very nice comfortable beds. The staff were all so nice and very helpful. The location of the hotel was excellent. Near the theatres, waterfront and right downtown. I dined at the hotel one evening and the food and service were excellent!!... More
