My boyfriend and I went to Minneapolis for fun weekend getaway. Based on previous reviews we chose The W to stay at, and pictures do not do justice to how beautiful the inside is! The art deco modern theme throughout makes the hotel so different and inviting. The rooms are great, and the showers are to die for! Beside the... More

I want to try and be balanced with this review. I'll start off by saying that the staff was lovely and tried their very best to help us at every turn. This is not a complaint about the staff rather it's a structural and possibly high level management issue that would be hard to solve. 13 of us came to... More

This hotel is slightly hidden but once inside was very impressed. The elevator is such you must have a key to a room to use them. The room was immaculate. There was no coffee machine so a kerig was brought to our room for our convenience. The staff were very polite.

I was not excited about my trip to MN for a wedding in the freezing temps. The room block and everyone was staying was elsewhere, but I wanted to attempt to have a good time so I picked the W. My trip got off to a good start- When I checked in, Lora was at the front desk and was... More

We spent an extended long weekend in Minneapolis for fun (in February!) and decided to stay at the W. We're really glad that we did: the hotel is well appointed, with sizeable rooms, great toiletries, and funky amenities. The hotel is right downtown, near the LRT and lots of shops. It's also connected to the pedways, which is invaluable. As... More

We recently stayed at the W in Minneapolis, the atmosphere was really the selling point for us. The Lobby bar and prohibition bar on the 27th floor are really neat, staff is very friendly. However there were definate shorts on value. We paid for the "cool king corner" yet were put in a queen bed room, the sheets were stained... More

Stayed there for a business trip; and although I was very busy and didn't have the chance to enjoy the hotel that much; have to say it is a very beautiful and elegant place to stay. Really business appropriate. Service was fantastic, rooms beautiful , and the view is amazing.

We stayed here for a friend's birthday party in the cities. We were close to many bars and eateries. Service was great. Room was small but met our needs. Nice shower. Our room xx06 was next to the elevators and ice machine so the noise was a bit bothersome. The decor was dark with a cool vibe.

Easy walking distance to most of the best spots in Minneapolis and the bar at the top floors is top-notch. It's off the skyway, so you don't have to walk outside in the cold and there are some great breakfast options nearby (Hell's Kitchen, so good).
