We have stayed at the Marriott Depot possibly 6 different times in the past few years. We only live 30 min away, but we like to avoid the drive home and stay in town if we're going to be at a late ball game, concert or show. The staff here has always been great!, and I mean everyone from the... More

All of the staff you encounter are warm and welcoming. Clean, updated rooms, super comfy beds. Room service quick, friendly, and great food. Nice outdoor space with fire pits is a great place to chat and relax. Very responsive to any needs/questions. Highly recommend!

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved the hotel. It was a very busy weekend (Twin Cities Marathon) but the staff did not seem harried nor rattled by the throngs of runners in their lobby at 6:30am on Sunday! The location is perfect - it is great for people who like to walk. it's close to the Stone... More

I recently stayed here for three nights and it was a great time. From the welcoming check in to my fantastic room this was a really enjoyable stay. Five stars in every aspect. The staff was very accommodating and helped me get a quiet room. My room was amazing (#486). It was a larger room with a separate sitting area... More

I enjoyed my stay here! Used self-parking which worked well, room service was fast though dessert options were limited. Relatively close to many downtown areas of interest including Nicollette mall, Target Center, etc, so inexpensive taxi or moderate walk. Also close to freeways!

We had a wonderful stay at the Depot last weekend. It was both my daughter's birthday and my birthday last week so we stayed here as a little birthday celebration. The room was beautiful (upgraded to historic suite) and the staff was awesome! They had a birthday card, sparkling cider, chocolate covered strawberries, and a plate of cookies for when... More

Utilizing the old train depot, the hotel created in and around it utilized the historic spaces effectively maintaining the orginal architecture and feel of the orginal building in many places. Location is convenient to downtown and attractions.

Nice hotel, pleasant and efficient staff - excellent value for money. Hotel is well situated with the areas of interest within walking distance. We only used room facilities and did not dine so unable to offer comment upon food.

The hotel was clean, beautiful, and cozy, but the greatest thing about it was the staff! The General Manager was walking around the hotel, every team member was smiling and seemed happy to help. The restaurant staff was particularly wonderful. Our server gave us hot coffee every morning and even though it was complimentary - she continued to wait on... More

The Depot was an excellent choice located near the Guthrie, across the street from the Carlyle and nearly adjacent to the Mississippi River Upper and Lower Locks area. Our room was very comfortable and well cared for. Easy walk to the downtown area, Nicollet Mall area and the major financial institutions. The Sky Way is within a city block. The... More
