“Historic, trendy and in the heart of DT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a beautiful old building, with great restaurants, bars, the W Hotel, and is skyway connected. I would recommend staying here if you are in Mpls to visit.

“Historical building, modern hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Worth a visit and worth a stay - the W Hotel is great at what it does all over the country. Minneapolis is no exception. Eat and Manny's which is connected at the lobby. You'll have a great experience with a stay at the Foshay.

“Great place to people watch!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Between the W bar just inside the hotel entrance and the Speakeasy bar on the 27th floor, the Foshay Tower was a great place to enjoy the fun side of Minneapolis. The W bar was a bit of a hot mess, but it was still enjoyable to dance and check out folks of all ages. The fireplaces were perfect on a cold January night. The drinks on the 27th floor were more of the craft cocktails-type and their prices reflected that. Still, the service and atmosphere were worth the price. A spectacular view was a highlight.

“Great decor and services”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The ambiance is great. The bar on one of the top floors have beautiful views of the city at night. They had car service that took us to dinner. Even though, they didn't get my chocolate covered strawberries delivered when we were out to dinner, I would stay here again. Very nice for a romantic stay!
