Talk about a great free breakfast, this might have been the best free breakfast I've ever had! There was eggs floretine, black and white chocolate chip Muffins, blue berry Muffins, Apple juice, orange juice, yogurt parfaits, waffle maker, potatoes, sausage, you name it! I was seriously impressed. The rooms were great too. Super clean, 1 bedroom set up with a...

I stayed at this hotel when I was in Minneapolis for a week on a business trip. The room was about the size of a small one bedroom apartment. The sink and vanity were in a dressing area near the closet in the bedroom. The toilet and tub/shower were in the bathroom. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The living...

Our family was very pleased with our stay at this hotel. The room was large, clean, and modern. Breakfast was plentiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was good- especially if you want to walk across the stone arch bridge to view to falls on the Mississippi. But the best surprise was a beer and brat social hour...

We stayed here for one night. Lobby area was very nice, modern, looked great. Front desk was very good. I asked for a quiet room, and he attempted to give us one. However, we had a few problems with the room. 1. No king size beds in the entire hotel! That's discrimination against tall people. I'm a tall person. 2....

Stayed here with the family. The rooms are very spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. It is not located on the Skyway and there is construction going on.

Thank you for your kind words! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully the neighborhood construction was manageable for you; it'll be even better when it wraps up in November. It'd be our pleasure to have you again at the Residence Inn Depot whenever you travel to Minneapolis.

Good breakfast offerings, courteous staff, big towels at the pool, close in location for our trips to MIA, Children's Theater, and the Guthrie. The room was clean and nice. The only thing stopping a rating of five was a general wear in the room / furnishings that detracted from vibrancy. Also the bedroom was noticeably close fitting.

Everyday awakened by construction noise starting at 6:30 am. Area roads and sidewalks also under alot of construction making it challenging to get around which will likely continue for the next several months. Not much near by. There is a restaurant at the connected rennaisance hotel but service is very slow. The room itself was hard to navigate as you...

We were actually in town for a family memorial service. When we arrived there was a problem with our reservation but the desk staff quickly got it resolved. Easy walk to several restaurants and Mill Museum. Also very close to walks along the river and the Stone Arch bridge. We walked down to watch the Aquatennial fireworks which were spectacular.

This is a really great Residence Inn. The staff is outstanding, the decor is very nice, and the location cannot be beat.
