I absolutely love this hotel. I am a frequent business traveler and have stayed at W's before. The W is known as a luxury brand but this particular property exceeded those expectations! Love the speakeasy, Prohibition!

Stayed here a few times throughout the years and it never disappoints. Beautiful, well taken care of hotel with friendly staff. The vodka drink upon check-in sure was a welcome for me! The bathroom is my favourite part of the room. Love the dark colours, purple light and view of the city. So relaxing. Little bummed my room had the... More

We finally stayed here again after a few years and the I am happy to report that the service has still stayed strong. The check-in process was fast and friendly. We upgraded to a Corner King room and while this was an upgrade, the rooms are still smaller than an average hotel of this price range. But it is well... More

Stayed here one night. I didn't get a chance to use any of the hotel facilities, so this review is for the room only. The good: Reception staff was very friendly and the check-in process was fast. The hotel lobby highlighted the historic feel of the tower. The view from the corner room was great. I suggest trying to get... More

This is a great spot for couples. We had a comfortable and modern room with a beautiful view of downtown. During the evening the hotel has a swanky vibe but it's not overdone. The top floor "speak-easy" style bar is fun and a unique part of this historic and hip hotel. We did a tour of the top of the... More

My boyfriend and I were traveling for a concert and felt welcome and 100% taken care of from the moment we pulled into The Forshay valet parking. We were created with a fun cocktail, escorted to our room and left to relax! The room was incredible. We stayed in a Cool Corner Suite. The room was contemporary and lavish. The... More

This is a beautifully converted historic building. The rooms were very nicely furnished and comfortable. I've not had as comfortable a night as in the W bed. The view was lovely and the location was great.

I recently stayed at The Foshay on a quick trip to Minneapolis. I have stayed there many times before and always loved it. I was a little worried that the hotel might have become dated. Quite the contrary. It's in excellent condition and the staff there go above and beyond the signature Midwest style of hospitality and friendliness. I love... More
