“An excellent example of what a hotel should be”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

The W branding strongly carries itself, but it says something when each and every staff member goes out of their way to provide professional and individualized service to you. I've stayed at many W Hotels across the nation and I will say that the W Foshay is, by far, my new favorite. Each staff member was attentive, kind and very helfpul. The hotel is clean and the rooms were impeccably serviced with a thoughful touch to detail. Being away from my family while I travel on business is hard enough and I felt that staying at the W Foshay gave me sense of calm and a wonderful living space while I was away. I would highly recommend that anyone traveling to Minneapolis stay here.

Room Tip: HIgher floor on a corner is great!

This was by far my best hotel experience in Minneapolis. From before I even got there to check out time I received top notch service! Each employee I had talked to made sure everything was the way I wanted it to be!They know how to host their guests.

This is by far the nicest hotels to stay at in Minneapolis. I always stay here when I travel to the metro. I hosted a large birthday get together here last year and received an upgrade to one of their larger suites. It was perfect. This last visit was also great. I was in town on business and had to stay at a different hotel the previous night. Big mistake. I was spoiled by the staff at The W when they learned their competitor didn't deliver. I have plans to stay again next week! 5 stars.

Room Tip: Spend a couple extra dollars and get at least a Spectacular Room!

Staff in the halls were rude and so was security. I will never stay here again or step foot in it. I was not a valued guest/customer. I absolutely do not recommend this hotel. There are much better hotels in Mpls with much more pleasing staff.

Wonderful stay at W Foshay Minneapolis! Arriving late at night, I've been warmly welcomed in this design and very well situated hotel in the city of Minneapolis. Lobby is cosy and the purple light will make you feel relax and comfortable. I had a corner room with great view on the city, huge bed with high quality mattress, bathroom was big also with lots of amenities. Definitely a good choice, I'll get back there for sure for my next stay in Minneapolis !!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room to enjoy more room / space and great view

I would like to share how very impressed I am with the staff at your hotel. Upon arrival after an extremely long stressful day Alex checked me in and offered suggestions for a light dinner and drink. The room placement was ideal. This morning James continued the same high level customer attention, offering late check out due to a flight delay and answering my many questions about the city and surrounding area.

Both of these gentlemen were professional, courteous and extremely helpful. Alex and James are an asset to your hotel. In the future, because of these employees I will not hesitate, when in Minneapolis,on staying at the W.

Best,

I've always wanted to stay at any W Hotel, so our friends got us 2 nights for our wedding as our gift (12-30 and 31 2013). Very hip, very cool and great staff. As we checked in they asked if there was a special event, and I told them we were getting married 12-31-13, so they did a nice room upgrade.

The rooms are a little dated and run down. I think they get a lot of Hotwire or Expedia deal seekers staying there, because it was a bit tired. Maybe I expected more of a Starwood property?

If you are like me and always wanted to stay at a W Hotel and get a deal, do it. Otherwise there are other much nicer hotels in MSP for less money.
