We spent a week at the Depot for a swim meet and had a great experience. The hotel is close to the UM campus (5-10 minutes) and is close to dozens of fun restaurants. The hotel is clean, the work out area is clean and functional, and the evening bar/reception was a great way to finish of a full day... More

I stayed August 2016 at this hotel. My husband daughter and myself stayed while attending a Tiger and Twins game. The hotel is in a great location and we felt safe walking around the hotel during the day and at night. The evening social was great beers, wine, bratwurst, potato salad, chips and fruit. The breakfast the next morning was... More

I stayed at this hotel when I was in Minneapolis for a week on a business trip. The room was about the size of a small one bedroom apartment. The sink and vanity were in a dressing area near the closet in the bedroom. The toilet and tub/shower were in the bathroom. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The living... More

Our family was very pleased with our stay at this hotel. The room was large, clean, and modern. Breakfast was plentiful. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Good breakfast offerings, courteous staff, big towels at the pool, close in location for our trips to MIA, Children's Theater, and the Guthrie. The room was clean and nice. The only thing stopping a rating of five was a general wear in the room / furnishings that detracted from vibrancy. Also the bedroom was noticeably close fitting.
