I love the W Minneapolis. Rumor has it that it will be closing or changing names. I heard this rumor and notice that their lights are no longer on "FOSHAY". Would hate to this cool hotel go. Its a beautiful hotel with a great vibe. The restaurant Mannys is amazing as well. Hope its just a rumor.

Dear RonBoss, Rumor-“a tall tale of explanations of events circulating from person to person”. I am happy to inform you that it is indeed a tall tale. The lights are currently out for repair. The Foshay letters consist of over 1,000 bulbs!! We do expect repairs to be completed in a few weeks. Glad you enjoyed Manny’s, it was recently... More

Hubby and I wanted a night away from the kids to celebrate our anniversary. I was excited to stay here since it's not the run-of-the-mill building (Historic Foshay Tower) and the decor was different than the norm. The good: Lisa, the concierge, emailed a couple days ahead of time and asked it there was anything we wanted. She was very... More

Just by walking in the front door of the W, you know you're in for a real treat. I stayed in the corner king room which provided excellent views of downtown Minneapolis. Very spacious room and bathroom. The rainfall shower was my favorite gem. The Prohibition bar on the 27th floor provided amazing views and a classy atmosphere. Anna Faust,... More

This hotel is meant for vacationers, not business travelers. The rooms are very dark with poor lighting (and weird lights that were difficult to turn on/off). I struggled to find outlets to charge everything - actually had a laptop charging on top of the toilet due to lack of more outlets. The bed was very comfortable but the room was... More

Kind and helpful fun staff from the checkin, bartenders, valet to the hilarious maintenance guy. Had a fabulous time in Minneapolis. Thanks Prince for letting me weed your purple flowers. I would stay at the "W" anytime.

Typical W style hotel with my favorite "whenever, wherever" on speed dial. Beautiful common area / lounge and great views from the 28th floor and observatory. Connection to the skyways makes the location great all year round!

Great old building but that makes for oddly shaped guest rooms with very small windows. Customer service was terrible for a W Hotel. Lounge at the very top of the hotel was the best thing with great city views. I wouldn't pay their rates again for this hotel.

This was my first stay at the W Hotel Foshay Tower but will not be my last. My wife and I enjoyed a great evening in downtown Minneapolis and the time spent in the bar at the top of the hotel over looking the city. Everyone treated us very well and we will go there again when we are looking... More

We have stayed here before and I haven't written a review of the Foshay but, I wish I had before as we really like staying here in downtown Minneapolis. There is plenty of good parking all around the area so that is not a problem. The accommodations are great with lots of comforts such as the room is inviting with... More
