We spent the Thanksgiving weekend at the Depot. This was our first stay at this hotel but have been to MPLS many times. There were two adults and one child, and we were upgraded to a suite because my husband is a frequent Marriott guest. The suite is perfect for a family as the couch is a sofa bed. The bathroom, large with great shower, is on that side of suite with French doors to master ( no bathroom). I would highly recommend requesting " old" side of depot, each room is unique and even the hallways seem authentically antique. Rooms were quite, even with road outside window. Service was friendly and responsive. Room service was excellent as well. Only issues were no safe in room, two lights and broken make-up mirror and one bathrobe. The staff offered to fix all but without a safe we didn't want people in and out of room. Ice rink was large and decent , although ice not surfaced enough if you are a figure skater, fine for general population. It's a few blocks to downtown restaurants, which can seem like a loooong walk in 9 degree weather, but in normal weather, easily accessible. Downtown MPLS had several great, fun restaurants and the 8 floor Holiday Display ( a longtime tradition for MPLS ) is well worth the trip. I wish there were more shops, Saks and Neiman Marcus closed as did many others but if you are looking for a family fun weekend downtown, I would highly recommend the Depot. Last point- it is incredibly reasonably priced ! Also has water park but did not see it. Also , self park, valet will help with luggage but lot right at hotel ( adjoined to Residence Inn).
