My wife and I recently spent a weekend at the beautiful W Foshay in Minneapolis. The property is a magnificent modern renovation of a historical Minneapolis building. The staff provided world-class service that is rare to find even the most expensive hotels in the US. (Christian at the front desk deserves special notice.) Our room exceeded all of our expectations in terms of size and amenities. We spent the evenings in the Living Room and Prohibition lounges which are perhaps the most elegant hotspots in downtown. The bars were fun and lively with a sophisticated crowd. We ate at Manny's Steakhouse and experienced an over-the-top, high-quality meal with attentive and friendly service. All this at prices that were very reasonable considering the level of quality and service. For a sophisticated getaway or celebration, this is the best destination in the Twin Cities.
