Granted, I have not spent alot of time in Minneapolis, and havent stayed at many hotels in the area. But if you find the right place, why does it matter when you found it? The answer is, it doesn't! This is a truly wonderful hotel. Its got a very modern and stylish decor, a uniquely impressive set up, and top-notch... More

Simply put the Foshay is AWESOME! Even if I had to, I really do not think I could come up with a negative. The service is by far the best aspect! Be sure to utilize the W Insider - lots of great tips!

I was speaking at a conference in Minneapolis and chose the Foshay based on a previous experience (an anniversary celebration). Nothing but great things to say about my stay - the room was comfortable, clean and quiet; room service was lovely; and when I called to ask for mint tea, they offered to run to the nearest store to buy...

Being an architecture aficionado and Starwood specialist, I’ve been a longtime admirer of the Foshay Tower and have wanted to stay here as soon as the announcement was made of the conversion of this 1929 monument into a W a few years ago. LOCATION: The W is on the corner of Marquette Avenue and 9th Street, placing it right in... More

Had a one night get way to explore the downtown night life. Hotel was lovely, we had a room on the 20th floor which does cost more. Not sure if I would pay the extra $50.00 again for a room with a better view. The hotel is very nice but a also a very modern feel. It would have been... More

I loved the Foshay W Hotel In Minneapolis from the moment I arrived. The service is impeccable, warm and friendly and the beauty of the hotel interiors could entertain a person for several days, but downtown Minneapolis is right outside the door and it's a beautiful city. Manny's restaurant is adjacent to the lobby and has excellent food. The personalized... More

I was so impressed with my stay the W Minneapolis. I had been traveling the whole month of April and was really "hoteled" out to say the least. The lobby is beautifully designed and has a very upscale feel! The front desk was so welcoming and pleasant. They signed me up to be a StarRewards member and gave me free... More

My husband raved about his recent stay at the W Foshay in Minneapolis. Aside from the aesthetics (he found the hotel stunning--very tastefully decorated and well maintained), he especially appreciated some serious TLC by staff. After settling into his room, he discovered that all the toiletries supplied by the hotel contained an ingredient to which he was allergic. He called... More

Stayed here with a friend for a conference. Hotel rooms were small but modern and fun. The ground level of the hotel included an awesome bar and club and there was also a bar near the top of the hotel (I don't think it was the actual roof though). It was a fun place to stay. However I can't imagine... More
