As always, the W Minneapolis cares about their service and my most recent experience there was very good. I wish the WiFi service was always free with the room rate, but I'm confident they will come to see that as a must. All in all, I've always had a good experience at the W Minneapolis.

Stayed one night and it was fabulous. I didn't even want to leave the hotel. Great bars-love prohibition and the incredible view. The room was great and absolutely loved the bathroom with the shower and big window looking out to the skyline. The service was spot on. Everyone was more then helpful. We wanted a fan for white noise, within... More

The hotel is very nice and so is the staff. I only stayed there one night but I would go back again and stay longer. The rooms are very spacey and the bed is super comfy. Very neat and clean and quiet. The only downside is when there is a club scene/DJ spinning at night. That is when it all... More

The doormen will greet you upon your arrival and take care of any needs you have, from your car to the bags.

Ms. M-, I have stayed at multiple W properties, most recently San Francisco. My last experience caused me concern that my good experiences in NYC and Atlanta were isolated. When my travel coordinator told me that there was a W in Minneapolis I have to admit I hesitated; I am very glad that I did accept. My experience at the... More

The ambience of the hotel is great! We stayed for a Timberwolves game and walked there and back. The room was excellent, such a refreshing change of pace from a normal hotel feel. Staff was friendly and helpful with ideas for dinner and things to do between the Foshay and Target Center. Great room for a good price! Will definitely... More

I had an amazing experience with the W Minneapolis hotel. This is the second time I have purchased a room from them for a friend's wedding night, and both times my expectations have not only been met but exceeded.

Having stayed at other W properties in various states - I was very impressed with The Foshay. The room was larger than expected, nicely appointed and the best comfortable. The front desk staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Truly a great experience. Dinner at Manny's adjacent to the bar area was also a great treat. I would... More

amazing hotel. Very high quality for the low price. The lobby is animated with a DJ on friday and saturday. The museum at the top is interesting and you can go outside. Tip: the room are smaller on the higher floor. Probably the best W I've ever seen The keys cafe is good as well.
