Nice, Great Staff.

Cons: No free Internet
Nice place. Good location. Very clean. Rooms are small but nice. The only complaint was they charge for internet and access to the water park.

Tornado1- Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our location and found the rooms clean. I am sorry to hear that we did not explain the waterpark access or internet options to you clearly. We do have one option that is free of charge to our guests and this is something that we should have explained to you at time of check-in. I will be sure to share your comments with my staff so that our future guests do not experience the same issues. Thank you again!

Good location, nice hotel, not so great service

Pros: close to major attractions and mass transit
Cons: No free Internet, Noisy, walls are very thin as are the bath towels
Very nice hotel with convenient location to inexpensive mass transit servicing the airport, Mall of America, Metrodome and University of Minnesota/TCF Bank Stadium. However, when we checked in Friday night, not only was there a private convention group of about 1200 people, but also a large group of students staying overnight, who they booked on the same floor as me and my husband. Hence, the service in the bar and restaurant was absolutely horrible, and the noise in the middle of the night was like staying in a college dorm. We were offered no apology or compensation for this inconvenience, and although it was better the second night, it left a very bad taste in our mouths. There are many hotels in the area, and I would probably stay elsewhere next time. In addition, they charge extra for internet service, which was annoying, since I couldn't even check my e-mail on my phone without going outside or to the business center.

nlc34- Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am so sorry to hear that the first night of your stay was affected by the convention and the loud neighbors. In most cases, we would have been happy to move you to a different room so you were not affected and I'm disappointed to hear that we did not do so. I will have a discussion with the front office team to ensure that these types of issues are addressed quickly and professionally so that our future guests do not experience the same type of inconvenience. Should your travels find you in Minneapolis again, I do hope you will give us a second chance to make up for it. Thank you again!

Absolutely beautiful.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
We were pleasantly surprised with how beautiful and historic this hotel is. We stayed here for our anniversary and will definitely stay again. We told our friends about it and one couple has already stayed here...they loved it as well. It is close to so many nice restaurants and entertainment places. The staff was very professional and our room was clean. It turned out to be the perfect hotel for us! We will definitely be back.

Surprisingly good bang for your buck.

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
The hotel is surprisingly luxurious for the price point. This was the first thing that struck me upon arrival. The decorations were tasteful and the lobby was a large enough space to not feel crowded at any point while I was there. My room consisted of a king size bed, desk, 2 night stands, spacious entry foyer with closet and a large bathroom with (conveniently) the sink outside of it. The tv had a decent channel selection included and was an impressive (again for how much the room cost) size (either 37 or 40"). There was a coffee/tea brewer with complimentary coffee and tea bags that kept me nice and warm while I was there and it was -10 degrees outside. The room had been turned over perfectly, which made it very easy to get comfortable. The shades were thick and allowed me to get in a mid-day nap after a sleepless flight. The bed was very comfortable. My only complaints were both minor: 1. the pillows could have been more comfortable, but there were enough of them to make up for it and that really only applies to those with my taste in pillows. 2. The lamp above one of the night stands didn't turn on, which was annoying but bearable. The Depot Renaissance was an overall great stay and I would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Minneapolis for either business or pleasure (there's an indoor water park).
