I really like the atmosphere of this hotel. The people are really great and they do their best to take care of you. But after multiple visits I'm detecting a pattern of neglect - neglect that is specific to taking care of the little details. My guess is that there is little attention given to making a person feel special.... More

I am always surprised how cool the W hotels are desiged. The lobby was fantastic and the music was an added plus. The roof bar was such a great bonus. Stay here if you can. It's close to all major attractions a quick walk to the target and ball park.

After 2 days of international travel, my wife picked me up at the airport and we headed downtown to celebrate her birthday and St Patty's Day. I had booked a nice suite at the W for the occasion. We had never stayed there and I wanted to do something special for her birthday. When we checked in we were warmly... More

I grew up in the Minneapolis area and have always wanted to stay at the Foshay W Hotel. There were many positives about staying at this establishment but a few negatives that stuck out in my mind. I'll start with the pros: My boyfriend and I were greeted very professionally and given fabulous advice about the city, daily events happening... More

On a recent gal's weekend, I needed to have 3 people in one room. The national registry agent told me there were no rooms with 2 Queens, no King Suite rooms and no rollaways available. Rooms were small and there probably was not even room for an air mattress. On the day of our stay, I called the hotel directly,... More

I'm a regular W guest -- many properties, many nights -- and The Foshay is among my favorites. Honestly, the only reason why this is a four star versus a five star is that the expectations are set so high by the impressive lobby and rooms that any fault (I'll get to that small one) is noticeable. First the good.... More

Based on the reviews I was very excited to book a night there to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. it wasn't horrible but not as luxurious as expected. The elevators are slow and during the afternoon had to share them with the cleaning staff, and no thats the elitist statement it just made traveling on the elevators even slower. The room... More

The W is a hip, young, funky place. It might feel like you are in a bad B movie at first with all the art deco and crazy lighting. But, it's fun to see and do something different. The rooms are very comfortable. They even sent up complimentary wine for our anniversary. The hotel bar is fun to hang out... More
