This great hotel and its staff are unassuming while maintaining an upscale, downtown style. The large room had great views, nice amenities, clean bathroom, and beautiful shower. The W Minneapolis is well situated for visitors to enjoy the city and then escape to a luxurious room.

We stayed here one night en route to Canada. The hotel is quirky Art Deco in style. We enjoyed the Lounge, the Prohibition Bar, the scenic overlook of the City, and Manny's Steakhouse. If you are not staying here, definitely make your way to the small museum on Forshay. Overall, it was a great way to start our visit.

Spent one night with the family (two small children) at the W Minneapolis (Foshay). This is a brilliant old Art Deco hotel in a fantastic location downtown. It's fair to say the "W style" isn't for everyone, but we like it and felt it blended well with the historical style of the hotel. Service and amenities were exactly as expected-... More

We arrived at check-in and I had asked for a room at a higher level. The receptionist asked if we wanted to join the W hotel membership and we said yes. She immediately upgraded our room to a higher level and a corner room with lots of windows. Room was clean and beautiful. When we called the concierge to have... More

I love W hotels. Loved Minneapolis. Weather in late June was perfect. Everyone at the hotel/staff was terrific. Room was great. Love how history and structure of the hotel was maintained but still included the W brand and decor. Shower/bathroom was great and love the products. I always take all the products home with me after I stay at a... More

In spite of how expensive overnight parking is as we stayed 4 nights but overall, our stay was just perfect. Great location and friendly staff. We had an issue with the original room and requested a different room- no problem and moved us to an higher floor with a great view and the rain forrest shower made it worthwhile! Valet... More

We enjoyed our stay at the W Foshay. We were very busy during our stay and were only in the room to shower and sleep. So we didn't get to take advantage of any of the amenities the hotel. I will say that the hotel is clean and the employees are very good. We did have some billing issues when... More

I was here for 1-night with my 12 year old son for a baseball game right before the 4th of July. It was very interesting how the decor of the hotel mixed modern and older 'art deco'. I had a hard time finding the hotel from the outside as there is just a silver (I think) "W" just off the... More

First of all I just want to preface my review by saying that this was a last minute trip and we booked the hotel on the same day we stayed. The hotel is very easy to get in and out of and the parking in the TCF building attached to the Foshay building is really convenient and inexpensive on the... More
