We stayed here for a weekend and celebrated our 3 year anniversary. It was an amazing hotel. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful! They upgraded us to a suite for our anniversary and it was so cool! Very clean, very unique, and in a great location. We like to stay at unique hotels and it was very...

If you are looking for a "home-base" for downtown Minneapolis exploration, this is a great choice. You are close to biking and hiking trails through some beautiful and historic neighborhoods. You are also close to the interconnected walkways through the downtown business area. Great restaurants and cafes are within walking distance. We loved the Izzy for ice cream and a...

I love everything about this hotel. I was downtown for the Joyce Meyers convention, and I booked a room for 2 nights. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The room exceeded my expectations. It was fully stocked with utensils, plates, bowls cups, a toaster, strainer, pots and pans, full size fridge, dish washer, and a fire place! I was...

This is our first experience with a Residence Inn and were we impressed. First of all, I loved the exterior red brick "colonial" style. The lobby was quite welcoming with cozy chairs set near a fireplace. There also was a work area with a long table where you could comfortably work on your computer which also had a flat screen...

I have stayed at this property couple of times in 2015 and find it decent for extended stays (2 weeks or more). The location is great as it is right in middle of Minneapolis downtown and connected to the buildings around through sky walk. The metro station is at a walking distance as well. The metro takes you direct to...

We chose this hotel as a couples retreat, and upon checking in we were immediately disappointed. The hotel looks nothing like the trendy pictures online, in fact quite the opposite. We really thought we were getting upscale for our little getaway, come to find out the room is tiny and the bathroom is nothing like we expected. Well played pictures,...

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...

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.
