    Attentive vendor!

    I worked with Brooke in sales and Mario in catering. Wow! They were both detail oriented, communicators and helpful. I love the app feature The Depot has rolled out. With a click of a button I am able to get assistance from staff instantly. They treat every event like it’s the best and their own.

    Wonderful Wedding Reception!

    The Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot was a positively wonderful place to have our daughter’s wedding reception this July 2019! The staff was extremely professional, helpful, and accommodating. Brooke and Cindy went “above and beyond” to address the needs of the Bride and Groom and the Wedding Party! Our family and friends came from all over the country, and it was very convenient for them to stay at the two adjoining on-site hotels so amazingly close to the reception in the Great Hall. In addition, the location is complemented by the energy of the vibrant downtown milling district on the river. All of our guests were dazzled by the historic beauty and sophistication of the venue. They were equally impressed with the superbly prepared cuisine, from the hors d’oeuvres to the entrees to the late-night menu offerings. The professionalism and courtesy of the staff, including the bartenders, was beyond measure. Everything about our experience was exceptional, and we highly recommend The Depot for your very special wedding event!
