Rated 4 out of 5 by BGSB Nice Hotel. Good Location.
This was my second stay and I like this hotel - a classic look (apparently the Foshay is a landmark for the City).
Staff was courteous. Rooms were nice. The view was great fro my room - pity I stayed just one night this time around.
There are some decent restaurants within walking distance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ang64 Nice room
While my room was clean, comfortable and had all the necessary amenities, the decor is ultra modern which feels a bit 'cold' to me. But that is just a perosnal preference.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jasmine Horrible caddy condescending overpriced and rude!
I will not be staying at this hotel chain ever again! From the beginning when booking the room when on the phone they were pushy saying only if I booked immediately would I get a great rate of $149, to finding on your own website a rate of $100, my friend found $80 on your website! Then beside the bell boys who were fantastic I found the people at the front desk rude and condescending! Our room key didn't work, which was a problem our friends had too, as they had a room the same night. In the morning someone entered our room w/o knocking at 8am, again same thing happened w/our friends there's was the maid and they were able to grab the door before they entered but we have no clue who entered our room! When I notified the front desk they questioned me and sent up security who was insolent and presumptious and had the audacity to say "so you THINK someone may have entered your room". Horrible and over priced experience I would highly recommend you stay clear of this hotel!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosey75432 Great Atmosphere, terrible soundproofing.
All of the staff we encountered were wonderful. The concierge helped my fiance plan a surprise and make dinner reservations at Manny's Steak House for us. She really made the evening special. The food at Manny's was amazing! The drinks at Prohabition were great. The only things that could have been improved was the level of noise/soundproofing for our hotel room on the 18th floor and dusting. Every time a police siren, ambulance or fire truck came near the hotel it was obnoxiously loud. This kept both of us up all night. The elevator was also very loud. At first we thought it was planes going over the hotel. The refrigerator in our room was making a silence consuming electrical humming noise. Our room was not dusted. There was a layer of dust of the side tables, enough so that if you wiped your finger through it, it would leave a path. The entertainment, style and staff at the hotel were again fabulous. The soundproofing was not. We hope this gets addressed. We love going to the W Hotel for entertainment and atmosphere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dick2101 Perfect Downtown stay
Our fourth visit to the Foshay Minneapolis was a treat again. We got upgrade to a perfect room on the 26nd floor with a magnificent view. Beds were awesome and the personal very responsive!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peterson12 Great historic building!
The rooms are more form over function. If you like cool and eclectic it's great - think south beach or NYC.... The lobby and building is a great Art Deco historic work and the renovation is nice but the rooms are small and not all that functional. There are better values in hotel choices in Mpls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wolfcastle Excellent Hotel in Downtown Minneapolis
The rooms were just like they were in the pictures, but the view from the 19th floor was absolutely amazing. The hotel was within walking distance of many places to eat and things to do which made it super convenient. I would definitely stay here again

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stormy107 In hot water, or not....
My recent stay at the W Minneapolis was very disappointing since there was no hot water on the second/final morning I was there. After waking, I worked out in the hotel's gym (clean but small and limited). You can imagine my surprise when I went to hop in the shower and had only late spring Minneapolis ice water flowing from the shower head. I called reception and they said it was a hotel wide issue and I could use the Y down the street. Since I was in a hurry, I did not have time to do so and took the polar plunge.
On the plus side, the room on bed were comfortable and I had a great cheeseburger from room service. It was delivered vwery quickly. All staff at the hotel were pleasant and professional.
On the negative side, in addition to no hot water, there was a loud group in the hallway making tons of noise in the middle of the night and the wifi is slow.
To stay there again, I would want reassurance that the water issue is not a recurring problem. The starpoints the hotel provided did not seem like adequate compensation for the problem, but that is a separate matter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Choodles5 Fun and relaxing stay
My Saturday night stay at W Minneapolis was simple in that I was just in and out to sleep but even the little service I needed was well taken care of. My car was valeted very promptly, check-in was quick and simple, sleep was quiet and restful and checkout and valet pickup also went seamlessly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ajameswoods Overall very fun weekend but some bumps
We had a great weekend. I made the reservations for my wife's birthday weekend. We had cocktails at the living room which was excellent. We enjoyed the comfort of the room to rest and get ready for dinner. Dinner at Manny's was excellent. Our evening concluded up at Prohibition for after dinner drinks and we loved it. This is where the good part of the evening concludes. My wife was woken up by young guests in the hallway having a verbal altercation. She informed the hotel security which promptly handled the situation. Albeit was unnecessary considering the type of quests you would expect on the 25th floor. We were disappointed to be woken in the early hours of the morning.
Next was the front desk which managed to lose all of the previous nights leftovers from Manny's steakhouse. Our bill was in excess of $250. The front desk did say that they would compensate us for that and provide a gift certificate. I guess I will have to wait and see how well we are compensated before I decide to accept the apology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy The "W" Foshay
Magnificant facility. Beautiful setting. Thank you for leaving so much of the glamor from the original building. Disappointed in the fact that we had to leave the hotel for spa services. But, the stay was fabulous and I would recommend the hotel to all.
The "Living Riom" is the best!

Rated 2 out of 5 by jana3 This hotel has a great history
The Foshay towers the elevators did not work properly. One night the boilers were down. We had to take cold showers. After contacting the front desk they assured us the boilers were up and working and we would have hot water soon. My husband waited 2 hours and still no hot water.

What a nice hotel and what makes it even better is the staff. I had a pleasurable experience there and even though I had to check out early they worked with me on that (having our first kid). I can't say enough....GO

Nice weekend stay at the W Minneapolis, but this is more of a social location than a place you'd stay for relaxation. The location was decorated nice, the staff was great and attentive to our requests, but we did hear partying guests even through our door throughout the weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KingDaddio Another fantastic W experience
It is becoming common place to expect outstanding service at the W Minneapolis - The Foshay. Upon arriving, I was upgraded to my favorite Wow suite. My favorite Keurig coffee was waiting for me along with chocolates and a bottle of wine.
Quite simply, I was Wow'd, again.

The total experience at the W Hotel in Minneapolis was exceptional. The staff was incredibly helpful and professional (including a free room upgrade), the room was comfortable with great views, the bar was filled with energy and interesting people. We will definately return.

I must say that the W here has really good customer service - extremely fast and responsive. I don't need to wait long or in vain for Whatever and Whenever to answer my dial and they deliver what I ask for instantly. Also appreciated the SPG recognition with a room upgrade.

It may not be the E-Wow suite but the Fantastic suite exceeded all expectations. Plenty of room, lots of amenities and the personal attention of the W Insiders. I recommend that all W Minneapolis loyalists experience the Fantastic suite. You will be Wow'd!

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!
