We stayed here for just one night, and it was perfect for a mini getaway. We had a standard suite, and it still felt very nice and had really cool decor. The bed was especially comfortable, and the option of choosing the type of pillow you want was great. The entire stay we felt well cared for, the valet were... More

I asked front desk about getting to Rochester Mn, had no idea. I got to room, no plugs at desk for computer, cell phone, etc. Is this too hip to be a business hotel? Old fashioned wiring despite facelift. Surly staff. Asked for teapot in room, it was there, but no cups. A woman came who without a smile brought... More

The hotel is very hip and trendy. Cool atmosphere. Our room was a good size and clean. It was a bit cold but we cranked the heat and it was fine. We stopped up at the Prohibition bar which was relaxed and comfortable but small selection for beers and wine. That was our first night we were very impressed. Our... More

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in a Wow suite. The hotel has the feel of a boutique style hotel. The hotel has Art Deco design I liked how it was decorated. The suite was well appointed.

What a great hotel. We were here for Halloween and I feel like the staff treated us well. The option of going up the upstairs bar or the Living room was great. Neat decor and classy all the way through.

Wonderful place to stay! From the valet guys at the door to the reception desk, everyone was very helpful and friendly. The room and view were spectacular. We were there for our 25th anniversary and stayed in a suite on the 25th floor. The downtown area is great for shopping, eating and drinking!

We had brief stay at the W last week and enjoyed it very much. Our room was great and the view was fantastic - even though we were only on the 9th floor. We did go up to Prohibition, which is one of my favorite bars. We'll be back.
