“Nice Stay”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

Stayed here about a week ago and had a pleasant time. My room was on the top floor and I didn't really have a noise problem. The room was clean, the bathroom was also clean. Breakfast is ok. There is a waffle maker and the basics, muffins, bagels, toast, cereal, fruit, eggs.

The light rail station (Government Plaza Station) is about a 5-7 minute walk from the hotel. The light rail ride from the airport is 25 minutes. Very convenient.
The hotel is near the stone bridge and there are some restaurants around the area. It is about a 20 minute walk to downtown. About 25 minutes to Target Field.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Gave good advise on how to get to Uptown and where to eat.
I enjoyed my stay and would stay again if in Minneapolis.

Had a bachelorette party, and this room worked well! We got a 2-room suite, which made it easy for us all to get ready, talk, n then sleep. The only reason I give them 4-stars is because the noisy children above us early in the morning. Other than that it was a wonderful place to stay and I'll b back again!

This is a pretty typical Residence Inn with some notable exceptions. It is located in "the Depot"which is a historical building, the old Milwaukee Road Depot. It's a decent facility, maybe a little outdated. Lots of funny noises in the night and poor sound insulation from outside noises. Pros are great location within walking distance to the Guthrie, Target Field and some good restaurants. Great for families because they have a really nice water park. Cons are noise, noise and more noise. One of the nights we were there they had an event at the Depot and the music was so loud you could not sleep. I called to complain and was told they were talking to the DJ to try to get the music turned down and the event would be over at 1:00 A.M. (which was about the time I got to sleep) So, before you book it might be a good idea to check the event schedule unless your going to the event. Staff was nice, and breakfast was fine although it was over run by little ones. Ask for a high room on the north side if you can.

Room Tip: High floor - north side are quieter

We stayed at the Residence Inn this time. While the sister hotel Depot Renaissance is lovely, the Residence Inn really is in need of some major updating. Our room was typical Residence; one bedroom suite, and while clean, was shabby. Plus there was a musty smell in the room. We had to open windows to air out. However, the staff is wonderful, breakfast good, location excellent and shares a great bar with the Renaissance.

We were more than pleasantly surprised with everything at this hotel - desk service, location (we walked to the river, then downtown, out to theater with no trouble), cleanliness, amenities, breakfast, price, parking. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will return there next time I am in Minneapolis.
