Overall excellent stayed at the Resident Inn, the Depot in Minneapolis. I had to stay in Minneapolis for 13 days for business and my work had reserved this hotel for us. I can said the best part of that business trip was the hotel. The desk staff was very nice and helpful and the kitchen staff was very very friendly, especially Sally. Every weekday morning, I will get a very enthusiastic “Good Morning” and “Thank You”. The hallway was bright and clean. I had a suite on the first floor #133 that included a kitchenette, microwave, refrigerator, and a dishwasher. I had no view and faced the street, so I can hear the occasional trucks and buses, that was a little annoying. But I got the higher ceiling compared the room in the forth floor , that made the room so much more spacious and comfortable. My business rate is $130/night.
The hotel included free hot breakfast from 6am-9am with egg, susage, biscuits/pancake, fruits, pastries, ready to cook waffle, juice, coffee, tea, etc. Also most of Monday through Thursday evenings have theme social hours 5:30-7pm where they have mini meal such as chili dogs, beef stew and garlic bread, etc. with all you can drink beer, wine, and juice. I was a great way to meet people and get out of the room.
The exercise room is shared with the adjacent hotel. It is adequate but toward the small size. On the to the exercise room is a indoor waterpark. Staying in either hotel can give you a discount to the waterpark admission.
There is not too much to eat around that area, but there is a Thai restaurant, Sawatdee, close by (2 blocks) that was very good with reasonable price ($12/dish). There is also a great Irish pub 4 block away with live music called Kieran’s. It is quite a walk from downtown where most of the restaurants and bars are and about three/four block from the train station. They also have parking available for $6/night.
