We stayed at the W Minneapolis - The Foshay on the dates of August 19 & 20. This is NOT an upscale or classy hotel. The room was updated. The room and bathroom are clean. The location is great. Target Field, Target Center, US Bank Stadium all within walking distance. The valet parking is ridiculously priced at over $40 /... More

I had booked the hotel for my boyfriend and I for a special night before I flew back home. I looked at the hotel online and loved everything about the modern chic.

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the observation deck and museum, cocktails at Prohibition, dinner at Mannys, and breakfast at Keys Cafe. Every staff member we interacted with my professional and made us feel welcome. The location was perfect for shopping, the Vikings game, and visiting other local restaurants. Both... More

I usually don’t write reviews on anything local ,but this needs to shared. The W deserves your consideration for your next venue. Our Families recently hosted a wedding there .The level of service we received was beyond any expectation. A few hours before the ceremony a call was made because of poor weather to move the event indoors. The W... More

Centrally located, in a historic building, with smart, hip lobby and well appointed rooms. I especially liked the restaurant (Manny's), however, which had excellent service and high-quality meats. solid hotel with solid restaurant.

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.

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.
