I love this hotel, but.... A review of The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel
I love the depot, I stay there over 75 nights a year. It is comfortabble, convenient and affordable. If you are a business traveler, you might appreciate a few pointers. This is a family orinted hotel on the weekends, they have a beautiful ice rink and a waterpark, so watch out for waterpark specials, the place can easily fill with screaming kids. The underground heated parking is the only way to go in the winter, and its affordable. My only quibble is the street noise. Ask for a room on the courtyard side. The restaurant has improved quite a bit, and there is a wonderful coffee house just out the front door. They have a number of beautiful rooms in the old railroad depot part of the property that are great for romance, and the lobby in that building is perfect for weddings and receptions. They have a business computer in the lobby area and a wonderful bar and fireplace for relaxing. If not for the street noise, and some occasional upkeep issues (I hate that the housekeeping staff scuffs the walls with thier carts, they have very little respect for this beautiful hotel) I give it 5 stars.
