My husband and I just spent a long weekend at the Minneapolis Marriott Residence Inn at the Depot.
The friendly staff offered a cordial welcome before we moved into the expected Marriott Residence Inn accommodations. Our living room was spacious, the kitchen well stocked and the bedroom a tad crammed with furniture.
Breakfast was of average quality, but presented abundant options for every taste and the cozy room with the pool table provided moments of fun and relaxation. While there is no bar at the Residence Inn, the one at the Renaissance, at the opposite end of the ample parking lot, is pretty good. Although a long indoor corridor will take you there, we recommend going through the parking lot to avoid the loud commotion at the Depot Waterpark indoors swimming pools, slides and arcade… On the other hand, we are sure that your kids will love it!
The very convenient location is walking distance to the wonderful Stone Arch Bridge over the Mississippi river, the surprisingly modern Guthrie Theatre (which affords sweeping views of the Mississippi river), the University of Minnesota, Nicollet Island and “old town”. We also walked to Nicollet Mall, a lovely walk along this downtown neighborhood where you can visit Mary Tyler Moore’s statue (ant take your picture next to it!), enjoy the stores, lively atmosphere and finish your day at one of the restaurants. We enjoyed cocktails and good Italian food at Zelo. A car would probably be most convenient if you'll also want to visit neighboring St. Paul.
All in all, a fine choice for convenient access to most attractions in Minneapolis.
