I travel frequently for business and pleasure and must say that my stay at the W Minneapolis exceeded my expectations! The Living Room was hopping on Friday night. . . vibrant, young, fashionable crowd and great dance music when we arrived just after midnight on Friday. Since it was late and we weren't up for dancing, we went to Prohibition on the 27th floor for a nightcap. While the crowd was equally hip and the scene was bustling, it was a a great bar - with several cozy nooks and crannies. Afterwards, we escaped to our room for some rest. Fortunately, we had been upgraded to a 'Fanstastis Suite' and it was truly FANTASTIC! It was a corner room that included a large living room, flat screen tv & dining room all surrounded by huge windows and a gorgeous panoramic view of downtown Minneapolis - from atop the 23rd floor. The bedroom and separate bathroom was equally as spacious - with a huge soaking tub, in which I bathed each day and soaked in the beautiful hihrise views. . . even the scale was cool! Soft, plush robes and a safe were also provided. . . took a ride on the elevator to the top of the Foshay, to the Observation deck, for wonderful views of the entire City. The Foshay is the second tallest skyscraper in Minneapolis. It was built in 1929 and exemplifies the charm of that era. We ate brunch at Manny's, which was delicious. . . next time, we will also try Key's for brunch, which has great reviews, instead of Hell's Kitchen, which was fun but only average tasting. The W was within walking distance to all the best shopping and dining in Minneapolis - once we parked, the car stayed there all weekend, except for when we left to attend a family event in the burbs.The area was very safe and clean and made a delightful impression on me. The Service at the W was very accomodating - from providing the use of an iPhone charger to the umbrella from the door man when it started sprinkling, to extra wine glasses from room service when we had friends and family over for champagne prior to dinner. . . We stayed here from Friday to Monday and it was overall a great experience and I look forward to returning when I visit MN again in the future.
Corner suites have wonderful panoramic views & higher floors are quiet
