I stayed at the W Minneapolis on July 1 & 2nd for work, the hotel is about 15 min from the airport with no traffic, although the cab ride is pricey $43. The hotel is in downtown and close to a lot of things, restaurants, shops, there was a target near by, and it's even close to the Mississippi River... More

The W is definitely in a great location. Walking distance to all downtown attractions. Clean room, helpful staff, pretty building. Room was typically what you would expect. My hang up is with the shower. I wanted luxury, massaging water spouts, extra big tub.... Anything. It was your standard, boring, small shower. Silly gripe, but I wanted grand and it felt... More

I enjoyed the location of the hotel. I thought the Las Vegas carpets were starting to look a little tired and should be shown the door. Yes, they were clean and kept up, but very tired. 37" LCD TV's? It's 2015 and those could be updated also. No Platinum SPG Suite upgrade, but I didn't spend that much time in... More

Part awesome bar, part high-end steakhouse, part beautiful old decor in a historical building, the W Foshay is a great hotel to stay in while you're in Minneapolis. Room was clean, bed comfortable, and the lobby/bar area is really cool. Only two complaints: (a) I get the whole "night club" vibe they are selling, but the lack of light in... More

WOW! Thank you so much for the amazing stay my husband and I had at the W on Friday 6/19/15. Our room, a corner king, was absolutely fabulous and exactly the right kind of sexy/swank we were looking for to feel like we were getting away on a vacation without having to leave the cities. Being a stay at home... More

The character of the building is really impressive. Nice mix of the old and the new with the signature W trendy look and feel. Great staff - nothing too much trouble. Manny’s restaurant which is part of the hotel was top notch. Special mention to Anna Faust on the managerial team who was really lovely and spent time telling me... More

Firstly, the bed was awesome! Thank you W. The room I stayed in was well appointed and spotlessly clean. Many towels. Nice modern design throughout. Very central location. The concierge is a gem. She gave me a map of the city and excellent details along with a great orientation. I was able to get everywhere easily and efficiently. Nicolette Mall... More

My husband was invited to work in the clubhouse for the 2014 MLB All-Star Game. The W was chosen for us by Major League Baseball. This honestly would not have been my first choice, too swanky for my taste, but it was a wonderful hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. 24-hour room service made it convenient for my... More

Having stayed at W hotels before, I was excited to book a room for a special birthday/anniversary get away - and prove to the boyfriend that W hotels are the way to go. I looked up the address for the insider on the Starwood website and asked a few questions...no answer. After a few days (during which time the prices... More

The hotel is located in Foshay tower. They have done a pretty good job renovating the place. However, the work is still continuing and not all facilities have been fully updated yet. Since W is part of the SPG chain, I was excited to check out their "open with my phone / Apple Watch" feature but was told that it... More
