We met some friends at this hotel for a weekend getaway. It was an absolutely wonderful place to stay! We had a one bedroom suite, and loved all of the space! Loved the stove and full-sized fridge. Definitely easy to make simple meals in our room. The bed was incredibly comfortable! The location of the hotel is great--we walked to... More

Spent nine days traveling for business. It's a decent hotel close to a lot of restaurants and things to do around the city. The hotel itself needs some updating but the rooms were clean and in my opinion that's the most important thing. Biggest complaint about the Rome where is the shower curtain rod the top screws were missing on... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn in Minneapolis for quite a while, and the staff there is amazing. From the front desk to the breakfast and dinner attendants to the housekeepers, there might be no hotel in the world with a more thoughtful, attentive group of employees. I absolutely loved the people I met while we were here, and even... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn at the Depot for two weeks, covering Christmas and New Years. Location in Mill district is good, with proximity to downtown attractions, shopping, and restaurants. We didn't walk anywhere because of the season, but one could presumably walk in the summer. A Whole Foods & multiple coffee shops are within a few blocks. Hotel... More

Curious Oliver, Thank you for your valuable feedback of the Residence Inn Depot. We appreciate you staying with us for 2 weeks. I apologize about the noise that occurred while staying with us. I understand how that can affect our guests while staying with us. A good night’s sleep is always needed especially when traveling. Moving rooms is not convenient... More

What stood out most about this hotel for me was the extremely courteous staff. Not over the top, but very friendly and helpful. The hallways on the halls are dated in their decor, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. This hotel needs some updating, but it has not crossed over to it being a necessity before I'd stay again.

The rooms are your standard Residence Inn rooms...nothing special. The watermark is nice, but small. It's also an extra cost. I've stayed in many other Residence Inns and this one is similar to the others. The big difference is the price, but I'm sure location is a factor.

I travel for work and spend up to 2 weeks in a hotel. The Residence in sure made it a pleasure!
