Rated 5 out of 5 by cali3304 Nice workation
Location convenient to Conference Center, easy to catch the 10 Bus. Acura rides were great! Knowledgeable concierge; she even gave me a free pass to a local museum. Only complaint was the bathroom shower door- it didn't close, leaking water onto the floor during use.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere I had the best birthday ever! The W gave us a complimentary bottle of wine for my birthday, which was unexpected and very well received. I felt like I had an out of town experience without leaving my town! I will be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mizbaum Great hotel, very quiet
I had a wonderful stay. The hotel is quiet. My room was very comfortable. My only disappointment was a bill for something from the "honor bar" - which I did not use. After an email and phone call, the charge was reversed, but it marred an otherwise positive experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deb777 The hotel was awesome.
The beds were very comfortable. Loved the rainforest shower. Close to everything- restaurants, entertainment, food, etc. The view of the city was great. Would definitely stay here again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PRAYAGA Hotel dissappoints with breakfast
I am literally stunned to mention the dissappointment with the complimentary breakfast at W Foshay Minneapolis hotel. First I wasnt aware of the token system and then I couldnt locate the toaster to make my bagel. I mean being a Starwood fan I never expected this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MaryL Great location in downtown Minneapolis
While the rooms are a little small (they were renovated from an older hotel), you still get the feel of a W. The rooms are well appointed, and the beds are great. The Living Room bar is hopping late at night or Prohibition is a bit quieter but still hip and chic.

This was our third stay at the "W" and once again EXCELLENT! Jason at the front door is an outstanding asset to your hotel; professional, friendly, smiling, and knowledgable! Thank you Delta for the "little extra" attention to our service! We will be back.....

It was my first time to stay at the W Hotel. Very friendly for all ages and well located in the heart of Minneapolis downtown close to most of the famous restaurants and shopping centers. Without hesitation, I will use again on my next trip to Minneapolis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nico24 Very Friendly Staff!
Just about everything was amazing as usual. The staff was super friendly, the room was awesome, the location was great! If you reserve the Acura Experience, don't let other guests ride with you (that you don't know) because it might ruin the experience.

Living room lounge was very nice and cozy. View from 21 st floor room was fantastic. Be careful when asking for a tub in the bathroom. I expected a jacuzzi tub and it was a crappy old tub for one. It did not match the rest of the upscale decor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy0000 Great stay!
Loved the amenities and ambiance. (Business center a little out of the way, but not a big deal.)
Loved the mini-upgrade to corner room, especially since I'm only Gold. Staff was fantastic! Thanks, and I look forward to staying in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at the Foshay Hotel!! Great location downtown. I recommend checking out the museum on the 30th floor and going out on the observation deck (the museum is free for hotel guests). The view was awesome!!

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and the staff, room and view exceeded our expectations. Sometimes with older buildings you are not sure what to expect in terms of modern amenities, but this building is worth visiting!

Nice room, nice view. Did find a can of pop in the bar with ashes on top of it and the phone began beeping at 7 because it was not plugged in and ran low on battery.
Shower controls not so good.
Other than that, what we expected.

Exceptionally polite doormen and valet staff. We loved the convenience of the Living Room Bar. The room was very clean and private, and the bed was extremely comfortable. We also got a great rate! We'd definitely stay here again!

W has done a fantastic job in renovating this historic building. Staff were attentive and helpful and although it took 2 days and 3 tries to fix my running toilet I still give the hotel and staff high marks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kerstin Consistent problems
Experienced multiple problems before, during and after my stay.
I happened to book the hotel through a convention listing website as part of my work, only to find out that you are not treated as the same when you do so. The hotel decided to cancel my prepaid reservation the day I am about to fly to Minneapolis for my business trip and I was left with no other hotel confirmed for me. I had to call the hotel as nobody called me back, after being told that only 'direct bookings' are honored, I found that statement very strange. I finally was allowed to stay and my reservation was honored. I find it strange that you would make a statement that unless you book direct, your reservation is not honored? Also kind of concerning to call me before I fly out and not resolve it. Had I not called, I would have arrived after traveling all night to find out that I would have no hotel room? During the stay the room had a strange smell - that of cat pee. The entire stay nothing was done to resolve the smell. I also did not have a trash can in the bathroom which I thought was odd. The shampoo was never replenished in the shower and I wondered why the housekeeping staff would have never noticed any of these small details. When I returned home my credit card statement showed an extra charge from the hotel that I did not authorize. I called the hotel and the staff told me it was for water consumed in the room, which I told her I did not use it. She confirmed that she would take care of it and have another staff member call me back to confirm the refund. |A week goes by and still no call back. Overall I am disappointed that I was someone treated 'less' than your average SPG guest because of how my reservation was made. Great hotel otherwise. I chose it for a reason but not sure I will chose it again.

We stayed at the W to celebrate our anniversary. Ashley at check in made sure that we were very well taken care of "upgrade", and even had a nice suprise for us to make the evening even more special! Thank you W!

Rated 4 out of 5 by FlyIntl Very hip, very trendy, very dark in Downtown Mpls
A great way to use an old iconic building (Foshay Tower) in downtown Minneapolis. The lobby is very dark and kind of loud from the bar. Elevators are dark, small and take some time (they're old). The rooms are plushly furnished in a trendy way but since the building is old, the layout is quirky (not bad though). Great bathroom with a plush mable shower and a huge window that you sit on the toilet or do your grooming and look out of (or let others in the next building look in to).
The gym is decent, but the ellipticals, stationery bikes and treadmills are from a not-so-easy-to-use provider.
There is a lot of booze in teh room, so if you're goal is to drink yourself to enjoyment in your room, you will easily succeed. Only problem is there is no coffee maker (or tea) in the room. I called and had a coffee maker delivered for me to enjoy my bed time hot drink and morning "wake me up".
Parking is valet, but right across the street is a parking garage ($5/nt on weekends). Location is just a block away from Nicollect Mall, all major business buildings, shopping an entertainment venues.
