Delightful-charming desk staff, warm greeting, attentive and intuitive. They sent a bottle of wine and cake to my room, in recognition of my birthday, unprompted. Would absolutely stay there again-indeed, it is now my "go to" hotel in the Minneapolis area.

Great service, very nice rooms and really good location. Although the food was above average, breakfast in bed was very pricy. This is a hotel to come back when in Minneapolis again. Next time, I'll just remember not to order room service.

I flew in to Minneapolis for a business trip to a major national company located downtown. I picked the W because of its proximity to where I needed to be, and after reading the reviews here, held my breath and hoped for the best. It was the W, the doubletree or the Hilton, and the latter two just looked much... More

Wonderful service, room, staff, and dining. Anna was simply outstanding in providing personal attention to us prior to, during, and after the visit. No question we will stay at the W again when we visit the Twin Cities.

Have stayed at the downtown Marriott and the Hotel Minneapolis Autograph in the past, but ice found a new favorite hotel here. This was my first visit to a W hotel and I was blown away. Been at the lobby bar of one in NYC before and it just wasn't for me, but this one was a great experience. Very... More

The hotel itself is nice. The bar is ok. The rooms are clean and comfortable. But the steakhouse restaurant attached to it is incredibly overpriced with so-so food. But always check your rate before you book. If you consciously or inadvertently book a non-refundable rate and for good reason, have to rebook, they will not give you your money back.... More

The W hotel brand is known for being top notch and I expected the W-Foshay in Minneapolis to be up to the same standards as other W hotels I've stayed at. I have had great stays at Hampton Inns, Residence Inns, Four Points, etc. and do not have high standards when it comes to the "class" of a hotel. I... More

In the middle of downtown Minneapolis you will find the best customer service around. The staff actually 'stopped traffic' for us so we could get the car across the street. Everyone we encountered was pleasant, helpful and welcoming. The front desk is bathed in deep pink lighting which was surprisingly soothing. The room was spacious and well appointed. Although the...

This hotel is beautiful, perfectly located, the staff is excellent. Feel the "but" coming?! It was my first time staying at a W and it was for business. The rooms...the entire hotel.. Is dark. Great ambiance for a vacation... Not so great for business.
