I have been in Minneapolis a couple times for work but this was the first time staying at the W. me and a few co workers arrived at 12:30 pm from the airport to find that we had been over booked. The staff of the W was on top of it and already had us booked at another beautiful sister...

Me and my friends stayed at the W for a weekend getaway in the city. the Hotel is very Chic and has one of the top steak houses in the USA attached. The suite was very nice. I especially loved the bathroom and the views of the city. Great hotel in the heart of it all!

Stayed here for just one night and got a great weekend rate. The hotel is located just a 5 minute walk from the light rail (only $2.25 and 30 minutes from the airport). The hotel was a former office building built in the art deco style (reminiscent of the Empire State Building). I arrived at midnight and the lobby was...

Loved this hotel. The view from the top was to die for. The service was excellent. Room was beautiful and bed was comfortable. Make sure you visit the look out and museum on the upper floors. Use the skywalk to get to the train.

The hotel is modernly decorated. The building is old so the rooms are small. They are eye appealing & comfortable. They definitely could use some more light. The hotel has daily maid service.

The W at the Foshay in Minneapolis is extremely overpriced with so-so service as a whole. Everything from the lack of daily maid service to overpriced room service and drinks makes this a real letdown for the pictures the website provides. While the doormen and most desk staff are very polite and helpful , the Prohibition bar is outdated and...

Art, its art. This W does a great job at art. The rooms are a bit smaller as the building is quite old, however comfortable. The staff is great and so if the location. Just make sure to bring your coat in the winter.

W hotels have a cool vibe, and this one is no exception. Rather than a newer property that many W hotels are, this one appears to be a much older building, that has been extensively renovated to W standards. Location is great, right downtown. The lobby, bar and restaurant are great, staff exceptional, and the suites have the usual W...
