We stayed at the Foshay for about 6 nights while my husband attended a conference. The Foshay is a great piece of architecture and a really nice boutique hotel. The museum on the top floor was a nice surprise - the history of the place is really interesting, and it was free to hotel guests. Really nice gym. We stayed at three hotels in the midwest during this trip and the Foshay was the only one that at least offered recycling bins in the rooms. I hope they really are recycling it. Some drawbacks of the hotel are that the lighting is very very dark. The gives great ambiance, but you always feel like its nighttime when you are in the lobby or any downstairs spaces. Even in our room we were constantly turning on every light. The room was really comfortable, the bed was great with lots of pillows. The housekeeping was somewhat irregular. Some days the robes would be gone, then they'd reappear, other days we wouldn't get shampoo, or the shower door would be left hanging open, and we couldn't tell what that was all about, but it really wasn't a huge deal. In the public spaces, fairly loud dance or techno music was being played fairly loud at all times. It went well with the dark interior, but felt a little night-clubby even during daytime. Complimentary coffee and newspaper every morning was nice. Like all interior spaces in Minneapolis, the air conditioning is cranked pretty cold. On the last few days of our stay we would turn the temperature up and then we would smell an odd baby-diaper type smell, though we could find nothing like that in the room. It would only go away with the temperature turned back down. We reported this to the front desk on our way out. Still, a very nice hotel and in a really convenient location near lots of sales-tax free shopping.
