Easy walking distance to most of the best spots in Minneapolis and the bar at the top floors is top-notch. It's off the skyway, so you don't have to walk outside in the cold and there are some great breakfast options nearby (Hell's Kitchen, so good).

Awesome Historic Building which has been transformed into an above average W hotel. If you need to be in downtown Minneapolis you would be hard pressed to find a better location and the rooms themselves (or at least the one I stayed in) was very good sized with a terrific bathroom with a walk in shower - I also visited...

This is a really nice hotel. The staff was very friendly. We had a corner room on the 23rd floor with great views. Even the bathroom had a great view! The bar was packed as of 11p.m. on a Saturday night. There were two art gallery openings within walking distance on the night of our stay! (Gamut and Instinct) The... More

The valet service as well as the staff was terrific. From the moment we pulled up to the time we were in our room was about five minutes. Welcoming and efficient. It was a great experience to spend two nights and the service was exceptional. The room was very modern looking, clean, functional, yet a little small. We went to... More

My wife and I stayed at the W for a business event. Everyone who works there is so friendly. Everything was clean. The room service was quick and the concierge service was very handy. We called for our car and it was waiting by the time we walked ou the doors. If you need a place in MPLS, this is... More

It was definitely an interesting time staying at this hotel. I thought it was unique change from the typical hotels I stay at. However, it was very easy to tell that the building the hotel is in was not built for the intention of being a hotel. The "Spectacular Room" was kind of small, but the purple wall color was... More

We live in town but spend at least one night a year at the Minneapolis W while celebrating the holidays with work colleagues. We stayed at the hotel on Friday evening. The first thing we did upon arrival is manage to drop and shatter a bottle of liquor on the street as we were unloading the back of our vehicle.... More

From the moment we walked into the lobby of the hotel we were impressed. We booked a cool corner room and it was so modern and so amazing. Sadly we didn't have heat and the solution was to bring up a space heater which, ended up blowing a fuse in the room when I was using the hair dryer so... More

Stunning lobby, rooms and our favorite bars are nestled in this beautiful hotel! The Living Room and Prohibition are wonderful places to go and relax in an ambient atmosphere. We always choose the W for a downtown hotel stay!
