This hotel was a bit fancy for me. My daughter was celebrating her 13th b-day weekend with a 1D concert and a few Twins game. This hotel really wasn't my style. I will not rate it bad because of that. What I can do is rate it for it's merits. Our view was a brick wall. One could not look... More

We stayed here at the end of December 2014 and had an absolute blast! We're local residents of the Twin Cities and spend a lot of time traveling. But, this time we had some friends in town and wanted to have a night downtown. The hotel met all of our needs. The room was stunning! It was an exceptional upgrade... More

My husband, a friend, and I stayed at the W the night of June 13, 2015. We were out of town guests for a friend's wedding. I called the hotel about 12:30 pm to make sure an early check in was available as requested by the bride/groom. I was told our room would be ready momentarily. We drove in about... More

We actually booked this for our daughter and her husband's 1 year anniversary using our spg points as a gift to them. As soon as I booked the room we were contacted by Lisa Heath from the hotel to ask us what they could do to make our stay the best it could be. I explained what we were doing... More

I was upgraded from a wonderful room to a spectacular room on the 19th floor because of my SPG status. The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was a large rainfall shower with a cool purple light. I've never been so exited so shower at night, with the light of the city shining in through the window in the... More

My husband and I had a fantastic stay at the W. I planned it as a birthday surprise for him. Lisa H from the hotel contacted me personally to see if there was anything she could do to help with our stay, and she ended up surprising us both with a wonderful gift of his favorite drink and a dessert...

Staying at the Foshay is an Experience from the moment you walk into the lavender lit lobby. The staff are all focused on great service and make you feel special. When I read TripAdvisor reviews about the corner rooms with windows, I just had to stay here, and it did not disappoint. I love the fact that they have restored... More

Stayed here for my 30th birthday weekend and had a blast. The concierge was super helpful and even sent cupcakes to the room for my birthday. Super sweet and thoughtful! Thank you so much! By the way, both bars are AMAZING! The view from Prohibition is great and the scene at the Living Room is great!

A staff member reached out prior to checking in to see if there was an last minute things they could help with which was a very nice added touch. Within minutes of... More

We were always intrigued by the Foshay. My wife' father worked in the building ages ago and we wanted to see how everything was converted to hotel rooms. Lovely room, great shower and great bed. The staff was great especially the men in the valet service. They made sure they looked after us. We discovered the bar was more for... More
