The museum and observation desk in the 30th floor provides a panoramic view for downtown. Historic landmark hotel. I think this property should be branded under luxury collection or curio collection or autograph collection.. They did not provide breakfast in restaurant or credits towards food for Marriott platinum and above members . they just provide grab and go breakfast in lieu of welcome points. So choose welcome points. during pandemic , they only give welcome points. Parking is expensive. But there is a municipal parking across the street (next to hilton), which costs 15 usd for 24 hours.

I stayed here on a visit to Minnesota, because of the history of the building. The lobby is beautiful, but mostly dark and bar is still closed due to COVID. I arrived on Friday, checking out Sunday morning. My first issue was when I asked the desk manager whether parking at the IDS Center was best (it’s where my GPS sent me). She didn’t know what I was talking about, so I pointed towards the Center. In the end, she had no idea where I should park. I found that odd, given that people surely must drive to the hotel at some point. I learned the hard way that most buildings are locked on weekends. To retrieve my car from the parking ramp, I had to go through the Marquette Hotel. None of the other doors were open. There were no signs indicating that you couldn’t actually get into the building on the weekend, and the desk manager was no help. Next, there was a cold front that came through the week I was there. The manager told me the heat wasn’t going to be turned on for another couple of weeks. All extra linens, including blankets had been removed from the rooms. A small space heater was provided, but my room had windows on all sides (corner room) and was cold. I couldn’t understand why the hotel wouldn’t just get the engineer in to turn the heat on, or at least provide heavier blankets or a duvet. The summer weight blanket was still on the bed. I also found that the mask mandate wasn’t being enforced. While some guests were observing it, not everyone coming in were wearing masks. I didn’t hear any of the hotel staff asking/reminding people to do so. The one high point is that The Keys restaurant was open for breakfast and gives a discount for hotel guests. Oddly, I didn’t find this out until my second morning when their online ordering was down and I called to see if they were open. No one at the hotel told me about the discount and there wasn’t anything in the room explaining the discount. My first day, I’d done the online order, so no discount then. The observation deck was open, and I’d definitely recommend a stop to check out the skyline.

This hotel is unique, the building is historic, but of course it has been remodeled by the W Brand, i really liked it, and everything is near by, even the train station, in a nice part of the city with all kinds of restaurants and businesses.

It can’t be easy running a property that is branded as a hip property that is supposed to be high energy with guests socializing. This is unfortunately not how you would describe the Covid era W Foshay in Minneapolis. Even with the Covid pitfalls this priority shines. Beautifully restored historic property with many original building elements intact. Rooms are not “spacious,” but they are modern and very comfortable. Our corner room had a decent view, spectacular bed, and a very nice over sized bathroom and walk in shower. Also love W toiletries that are not overly scented. Covid procedures killed the in room bar cart and coffee maker. But the front desk staff satisfied guest caffeine addictions with made to order coffee in the morning. Televisions were a bit small for the price point (and distance) and also would have benefited by being internet enabled like many Marriott properties. This is one of the only hotels I’ve stayed at in the Covid era that still offered valet service. Finally worth noting was the front desk staff. Super friendly and welcoming. Like many hotels these days, skeleton staff, so limited interaction elsewhere. Even more bonus points to return go the room from sightseeing and dinner to find a small birthday gift.
