One of the best W properties I've stayed in. They've done an amazing job retaining the beauty of the Art Deco building (carved brass elevator doors, marble flooring, amazing ceiling with chandeliers) while adding some really modern elements. The staff was amazingly courteous and helpful. We couldn't walk through the lobby without someone acknowledging our presence in the space. Room... More

We were enjoying downtown & The Loop area of Minneapolis and decided last minute to book at the W so we didn't have to cut our night short. Rates were good and the front desk quickly offered necessary amenities to make our stay comfortable. Because the hotel is located in the historical Foshey Tower, the floor layout and rooms are...

The pictures on the website do not do justice to the grandeur that is the W Hotel. When you walk in the lobby is stunning. I am more of a modern hotel person and love the sheik look. I felt as I walked in as I should be in a tailored tux with a grey goose martini in my hand.... More

We stayed for a wedding and enjoyed the facility. Valet parking overnight was easy enough, it was nice to pullup out front, and get help with bags and minimal hassle, but at a price of $34 a night. We had a discrepancy in the charges upon check-out of being billed for too many night of Valet service so review your... More

I travel regularly to Minneapolis and love every stay at the W. Staff are consistently friendly, helpful and readily available to answer any and all questions.

The foshey is a landmark building and w has managed to keep it as authentic as possible. The rooms are large and comfortable with great views. Try to ask for a corner room with 3-window bathrooms spectacular views. The bed is comfortable, service discrete but efficient, and location in downtown perfect. A great hotel!

“All rooms have a lot of natural light, not all have a "view", you should request a view of the downtown if that's what you want.”
