We ended up up at the W *restaurant* for dinner via the neighbor Manny's...and were glad we did. Perfect service, beautifully presented and tasty food in a very elegant and trendy setting, at more than reasonable prices. This very centrally located place is definitely worth a visit. We'll return for sure.

We do not understand why anyone would be drawn to the W. On a weekend stay, we had to wade through the smokers to get into and out of the raucously loud, booming lobby. The 17th floor room was small, dark and dusty. A good vacuuming and scrubbing is much needed in both the room and hallway. Doors banged constantly... More

Recently had business in Minneapolis and stayed at the Foshay. It was very good in every respect--room was clean, well appointed and large. The staff was very helpful with restaurant recommendations, directions, etc. The location was great--walk to everything downtown. Great place to stay.

This is a nice W centrally located in the historic Foshay tower. The only catch with this hotel is that due to a quirky central air design, every single floor and elevator is saturated with an overwhelming odor of steak and butter. Now I love a good steak but after an hour or so, that stench gets old. Once Manny's... More

There is a reason I stay at the W Foshay every time I'm in Minneapolis. It cannot be beat. This is my favorite W I have been to and it consistently delivers. What I like: - perfect location downtown close to everything. - as soon as you enter the lobby there is a chic, exciting vibe. The bar area in... More

I am not part of the staff or friends/family with any part of the company. With that being said I have stayed at one other W, the Cosmo Las Vegas, three bears lodge & the occasional "8". I was astonished by the service, kindness & gratitude from the staff. I don't recall mentioning my first wedding anniversary, although they did.... More

For those who have any appreciation of architecture, there is nowhere better to stay in Minneapolis than the W. Starwood has done a masterful job of preserving this historic building completed in 1929 just before the Great Depression. The Art Deco style has been maintained while the rooms have the modern signature style of the W brand. It has a... More

If you've stayed at other W Hotels, you won't be disappointed. This is an old building that was renovated and is really rather nice. I was here for a few days at a company meeting. The meeting rooms were well appointed; the business center clean with all equipment functioning properly. The meeting room meals were actually quite good. The lobby... More
