W Foshay is a great, great hotel in MN. Great staff, nice facilities, good location and very good restaurants on site. Decent nightlife on Fri / Sat if you're not working also. Lastly, good room amenities which are a big deal to me.

We've stayed here once before and loved it! The front desk welcomed us with cocktails. We decided to upgrade to a suite and it was awesome. The front desk staff and everyone was so kind, helpful and friendly. After going out on the town for the day the staff left us a bottle of champagne and a handwritten note! Such... More

Everything started off great Friday August 19th. Your check-in staff was wonderful and helpful. I especially enjoyed the colorful and creative display of arrival cocktails at check-in. The note and beautifully presented cupcakes in the guest room was equally colorful and creative. The room was clean and I like the modern design. After only an hour to enjoy our room... More

Great location. Love historical building. Room service food from Manny's excellent. Staff very friendly. However, very disappointed in my room. The furniture was sadly dinged, chipped & just old. Cannot believe that WiFi is NOT free & how expensive it is. Just expected better.

I did have high expectations. The W did not live up to them. The finish work in the rooms was sloppy. It was clean. We also wanted to dance and the DJ was not the best. As soon as she put on a good song and the dance floor would fill up and then she would change it and everyone... More

Recently stayed one night at the W in Downtown Minneapolis. Location was great as it is close to all the Bars and Restaurants. Check in was easy and room was clean and nice on arrival. The only thing I did not like in our corner room was the TV was way across the room and no way to watch it... More

Walking into the hotel feels more like entering a disco. Dim flashy lighting and loud new age jazz music made it difficult to hear the clerk during check-in. Elevator lighting was dim and difficult to pick out which button to push. In the bathroom the toilet was adjacent to a large window which was opposite two large office buildings. There... More

We stayed in their fantastic suite. When speaking with the lady to reserve this room she said the tub fits 2-3 people. In reality, it only fits one. And I was expecting the rain fall shower to come directly from the ceiling but that isn't the case. It's a shower head located on the ceiling. And the air conditioner in... More

From the minute I walked in to the décor of the building and the rooms I was delighted. The staff and the building are awesome in every way. The corner suite is a delight....the bathrooms are spacious. Loved every minute of it!

I have stayed at a few W hotels, and while this one was the least modern of them, that is simply because they restored this beautiful building instead of constructing a new hotel. As a result, you may think the rooms are a little odd for a luxury hotel, but that just adds to the charm in my opinion. Modern... More
