Big disappointment to cut the long story short. We had a series of business meetings at the hotel, so W was the automatic choice, but if I would have known what they offer for the $300+ per night rate, I would have stayed elsewhere. Rooms were OK, although a bit worn out and smelly at times (A/C or ventilation problems),... More

I stayed at The Foshay for business. The decor was what you see at all W's, chic and upscale. Once I arrived in my room, I get a knock on the door. It was a delivery of chocolate truffles and a huge bottle of water to welcome me as a guest. What a great surprise! The room was very clean... More

We had a suite and the view was great, the bathroom large and the bedroom was as well. That is where it ended. The elevators were slow and they only seemed to have half of them working. We had to ask for "turn down service" (as we found out the next day) so we did, but THEY DIDN'T. The furniture... More

The good: fast, tasty room service. Big bathroom, and a decent view from the room. The Whatever/Whenever service was responsive for small things. The bad: After forking over 350 USD nightly for what Starwood considers a luxury experience, here's what you get: Be prepared to unload and lug your own baggage up to your room yourself. No lobby porter or... More

Great location, cool look and vibe. Good bar and staff. Clean room. Little pricey but it is downtown and is a W. One of my favorite W hotels. Been there 2 times in the last year and rank it the same both times.

I'm a big Starwood fan and really enjoyed this W on a recent business trip. Cool, old property; solid rooms; and great service from start to finish. Little things - Bellman had my bags inside before I finished paying for the cab. Was upgraded to a gorgeous room. And they had a nice car service waiting for guests. Good example... More

Art Deco meets Gothic meets funky - the Foshay is comfy, classy and quirky - check out the pink cocktail cabinet in the room!! From the Living Room at the bottom to Prohibition at the top, this hotel is a delight to be in - highly recommended.

I have stayed in most w hotels but missed this one when I have visited Minneapolis in recent years. Like the Ivy a lot but love this hotel. First, rooms are comfortable and roomy. Love the decor....some W hotels have gotten annoying....not this. Second, people in hotel are beyond nice. Last ...located in the famous Foshay tower which I never... More

I'm not sure if some of the reviews I'm reading are even from the same hotel? The W Minneapolis which I visited on 10/11/14 was the best customer experience I have ever had with a hotel. They went above and beyond to cater to our needs. From the upgraded room at check in to helping my wife locate a misplaced... More

Great location. Rooms are somewhat dark and small. Bed was disappointing and not nearly as comfortable as I would have expected from a W hotel. Valet was quite expensive, but hey on special occasions it's hard to make your gal walk the one block from the parking garage. I thought it was quiet enough and the gym was nice. So... More
