“Great Views of the City, then Steaks!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

You get great views of the city and the history of the building is fascinating. Then you can have a steak at Manny's. What's not to like?

“Great view of the city”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

In the W Hotel. Small museum and outdoor walkway on the 30th floor. Well worth the $8 price for adults.

Reviewed April 3, 2013

We thought the $8 ticket to the observation deck was well worth it. wonderful views and a small museum, explaining the life of Mr. Foshay and the construction of the gem in downtown Minneapolis.

“Great Minneapolis Gem!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

This is a great site for locals and tourists! Great photo-op + history lesson. The video presentation and display was great. The observation deck was my favorite - spent over 30 minutes just looking at the buildings!

Great old art decoish building modeled on the Washington Monument. Built by Wibur Foshay (who was sent to prison for fraud about the time it was completed) in the late twenties. Originally an office building, recently restored as a boutique hotel with bar and restarurant.
