We ended up up at the W *restaurant* for dinner via the neighbor Manny's...and were glad we did. Perfect service, beautifully presented and tasty food in a very elegant and trendy setting, at more than reasonable prices. This very centrally located place is definitely worth a visit. We'll return for sure.

We do not understand why anyone would be drawn to the W. On a weekend stay, we had to wade through the smokers to get into and out of the raucously loud, booming lobby. The 17th floor room was small, dark and dusty. A good vacuuming and scrubbing is much needed in both the room and hallway. Doors banged constantly... More

Recently had business in Minneapolis and stayed at the Foshay. It was very good in every respect--room was clean, well appointed and large. The staff was very helpful with restaurant recommendations, directions, etc. The location was great--walk to everything downtown. Great place to stay.

This is a nice W centrally located in the historic Foshay tower. The only catch with this hotel is that due to a quirky central air design, every single floor and elevator is saturated with an overwhelming odor of steak and butter. Now I love a good steak but after an hour or so, that stench gets old. Once Manny's... More

There is a reason I stay at the W Foshay every time I'm in Minneapolis. It cannot be beat. This is my favorite W I have been to and it consistently delivers. What I like: - perfect location downtown close to everything. - as soon as you enter the lobby there is a chic, exciting vibe. The bar area in... More

How many people travel just to stay in their hotel? Well this was me and my friend as we travelled to Minneapolis for a friend's wedding.

For those who have any appreciation of architecture, there is nowhere better to stay in Minneapolis than the W. Starwood has done a masterful job of preserving this historic building completed in 1929 just before the Great Depression. The Art Deco style has been maintained while the rooms have the modern signature style of the W brand. It has a... More

My husband and I booked the Foshay hotel at the last minute and got a great price for a 4 start hotel. So for what we paid ie last minute deal on price line was a great value / deal for the money we spent. However, If I would have spent normal listed price($250 to 500 plus) I would have... More

If you've stayed at other W Hotels, you won't be disappointed. This is an old building that was renovated and is really rather nice. I was here for a few days at a company meeting. The meeting rooms were well appointed; the business center clean with all equipment functioning properly. The meeting room meals were actually quite good. The lobby... More

Came here from NY to catch a Twins game and a client booked me a room here at the W Foshay. Even though it's only a one night stay, I have to say I'm pretty satisfied. The room was very clean, bed is extremely comfy. I love the ambiance! I'd definitely come back!
