Stayed here for a conference. The rooms were spotlessly clean, very comfortable, and nicely decorated. The lobby was comfortable as well. I enjoyed the historical displays around the hotel - very interesting to look at. The food in the restaurant was excellent. Nice fitness center with a lot of equipment as well.

Lots to do at this location! We were there in the winter and was able to ice skate next door or have the kiddos play in the waterpark. There is also a mini game room in the swimming area and plenty to do within waking distance.

We stayed at the Depot Renaissance while in town for Art-a-Whirl and chose it because is was the suggested hotel for the event (and supposedly they had a block of rooms set aside for attendees, though I booked too late to take advantage of that.) However, the front desk clerk I spoke with had no clue as to what A-a-W...

Stayed here for a conference. Interesting hotel that harks back to origins in the mill-depot past of the city. Artifacts have been beautifully preserved and displayed to highlight this. I had a heritage room; it was plush in its décor and pleasing to the eye. However, finer details such as slippers, shower caps were missing. Housekeeping that exercised sense in...

We were excited to stay at a 4-start, centrally located property in Minneapolis for our wedding night....and I told the booking agent and the hotel staff that we chose their hotel to spend our wedding night. At check-in they proceeded to check us into a horrible room with a view of a huge, yellow HVAC roof top unit. We thought...

Dear RKRodgers Congratulations on your recent wedding! What an exciting time. I am sorry to hear that your view was not what you had hoped for. I know the reception team was working hard to try to find solutions for you on a sold out weekend. I hope that aside from the view not being a perfect one, you still...

Stopped at this hotel while on a trip in Minnesota and appreciated the hotel. The room was nice and comfortable with a very nice bed. Bathroom was very modern and functional which is always a plus. Hotel is perfectly placed for all activities downtown and also to go dining and have drinks in the Marcy Holmes district by the stone...

Our room was clean, our bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, and the hotel's location is fabulous. We walked across the pedestrian bridge to attend a wedding on a beautiful day -- lots of people out and about, bikers and walkers both. We had the breakfast buffet and both the food and service were excellent. I highly recommend this hotel.

The best hotel service I've ever experienced! Treated us like we were VIPs. Super fast check-in with a sincere smile and desire to please! The room was very comfortable and exceptionally clean. Great location within walking distance of superb restaurants and bars. We will definitely be back!

I stayed at this hotel for 6 or 7 weeks in a row and enjoyed it. The design is quite nice and has a recently redone feeling despite being in a historic building. The front desk staff was always friendly and cheerful. All of the rooms were pretty much the same, which got a little old after a few weeks,...

We stayed one night and the hotel was lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food at the restaurant was amazing. The room awesome...a new, modern design throughout the hotel and rooms which incorporates some of the history of the Milwaukee Road RR. The only thing about which I could complain would be the sound...we could hear...
