The W Forshay positions itself as a 4-5 star hotel. While I would also rate the property 4 star, my personal experience was only 2,5 star, so I have to give a total impression of 3 star (average). I booked this hotel for a concert visit and flew in from Europe. I had a 10 hour layover in Dallas so... More

I checked in very late last night, and it was nice to be able to go to the 24 hour fitness center to grab a bottle of water. Room is clean and comfortable. As with other W Hotels, lighting is generally dim. One thing I was surprised by is the lack of charging outlets at the desk. There were no... More

This is my favorite W, favorite SPG hotel. They have done a great job of carefully knitting the hip modern W interiors in to this classic early skyscraper (1929), the tallest in Minneapolis until Philip Johnson's Iconic IDS Tower & Crystal Court (kiddie corner) came along in the early 70's. Professional, friendly, and responsive staff make you feel instantly at... More

I am an SPG Member and stayed here for 3 nights on business. The service at the front desk was great - very nice, friendly, attentive, and acknowledged me as a SPG without me even saying so. The room was very clean and quiet with a great view, and the bathroom amenities were nice. The TV was a little outdated... More

We were at a concert and enjoying the city most of the night so unfortunately we didn't get to spend much time checking out all the hotel has to offer. The room was beautiful and the staff was very kind and helpful. We will definitely be back to spend some quality time in the hotel.

I'm an SPG Gold member and chose this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip. I needed something close to the Convention Center and I generally like the W brand. This is one of the best W hotels I have stayed in. The lobby is huge with a lounge and tons of seating. There is also a speakeasy called... More

I'll start by saying that the W Minneapolis is in a very cool old building and is in a great spot in downtown. The living room bar is solid, seems to be a good crowd every time I stay. Food/room service is great - as Manny's steak house is right downstairs. The not so great - the elevators take forever,... More

I've stayed here a few times before and the room size is good, not great. The decor is dark and sensual but perhaps a little too dark. The lobby bar is a great place for an after work drink and the food from Manny's next door is outstanding. Friendly staff, plush beds and that W vibe make this a great... More
