Rated 5 out of 5 by LHogen Good time in Minneapolis
We live in an eastern suburb of St Paul and were coming to Minneapolis for dinner and a show. We decided last minute to make it a night. The accomdations at The W were great. It's location to the Orpheum, restaurants and nightlife were perfect. We walked to and from the show and had a very comfortable room. Not one complaint from this satisfied consumer.

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.

I have always loved staying at the W but this time they made it even better! I stayed their for my birthday- a night out on the town. The front desk staff from that night sent up the huge piece of chocolate cake and a very nice note saying happy birthday. It was great and i will always remember that they did something a little special for me! Thank you !

I have stayed in more expensive hotels, but this was by far the best hotel experience I have ever had. The hotel staff was very accomodating. I loved having the doors opened for me when I entered and exited the hotel. The room was beautiful. I was there for training and the food was great and the wait staff was friendly and accomodating as well.

Housekeeping staff have some difficulty in scheduling their services when guests are not checking out.
One day we were out of the room for an extended period between 11:00 and 4:00 pm, but on return to the room we had to go and find the housekeeper and have her make up the room.
All in all the stay was exceptional and the facility very nice.

I have stayed at this hotel many times. Very cool vibe - you definitely know you're in a W Hotel. Rooms are comfortable, gym is solid, and food choices are very good. Plus you are right downtown near everything.

From the time I initially contacted The Foshay to checking out, the customer service was above and beyond outstanding. Lisa Hearth provide a great deal of assistance as I planned the perfect evening. I would highly recommend staying at The Foshay for every and any event. Thank you everyone at The Foshay!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VVSO So convenient!
Loved the hotel location! Easy to get to through the skyways and Hennepin theatre district. We lucked out at prohibition and ended up with the best seat in the house! We live in the TC area, but wanted a weekend get away experience and will definitely stay here again! Staff was so friendly, rooms clean and beautiful and super comfy bed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jwatts Great hotel in great location
We stayed there while a friend of mine was in town to avoid driving back to the burbs. The staff was awesome and everything we asked for was there in a hurry. There is Manny's attached to the hotel as well as a breakfast place that is awesome too. The night life at the bar is very chic and has a real LA vibe. I really enjoyed my stay,

Couldn't help but notice everyone was way over the top on Whatever whenever service. Manager I spoke to regarding a reservation cancellation, front desk at check in AND check out (Anna, both times, I believe)
great service and attitude.

Rated 4 out of 5 Room tempeture is horrible
Our room was very cold- the heat would not kick in. Called the front desk and the solution was to provide a space heater. Shocked that a high end hotel in 2014 solution is providing a spec heater- only real disappointment we experienced. Staff were outstanding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BGL1 Whatever Whenever????
They have all sorts off fees attached to your stay so be sure to understand what you're paying for before you decide to stay here. Also, they have an in room program that they call "Whatever Whenever." Its a clever name, but its completely false. They will not do anything different than what a standard hotel with in room dining will do.
This is 1 of the requests I made that couldn't be met:
They have 2 bars in the hotel which both serve Coors light. I called and asked for a bucket of Coors light and they could only sell me craft beer off the in room dining menu. They couldn't walk to the bar and order a 6 pack charge it to my room throw it on a tray and come up? I mean that would be exactly what "Whatever Whenever" means to me. I ended up going to the bar and getting it for myself and it took me ten minutes.. No big deal if they didn't advertise "Whatever Whenever." The program is advertised all over in every room but its actually just a joke/ bad ploy to try to fake you into feeling you're at a classy joint. The staff wont do anything special or go out of their way to help at all.

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!!!

We stayed with another couple to celebrate a 40th Birthday. Everything was perfect from check in to check out. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the hotel was beautiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a first class stay in Minneapolis.

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.

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 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 1 out of 5 by USTnick02 Lackluster Experience
We had no hot water (luke warm at best), the heating system was so loud (even when not running) that we couldn't get a decent night's sleep, and we were mysteriously charged $12.04 for Honor Bar items that we didn't consume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowbird14 Comfort and Style Downtown!
From the minute you walk into the lobby, you are transported to a perfect get-a-way with the modern/retro look and fabulous historic features. The staff was friendly, we received an upgraded corner room for being SPG members and had a very cool view of the city from the 22nd floor. I would absolutely recommend requesting a high floor as I am not sure the lower floors would have the WOW factor. Our room was lovely and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in! Happy Hour at the Prohibition Bar was fantastic and affordable for the budget conscious. We enjoyed the Living Room to relax during the day and left the partying for the younger folks at night. The location can't be beat for access to the sky walk and the Theater District, as well as the Target Center and Baseball Field. We chose to park in the public parking ramp in the TCF building and it worked out quite nicely and was more affordable than the valet service. All in all I would be back in a flash to the "W" for a superb get-a-way experience in the heart of Minneapolis.

Shower temp and pressure uncomfortable. Room service order was not correct, when attendant called to check on it, he was told about missing items and his response was "oh". Not a problem, just below expectation for W brand.

Excellent accomodations and truly fun stay. They know how to treat you right here, trust me. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but that's the city for you. We had a cool corner room and it was great for our needs. I'll be back in a heartbeat.

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!

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.

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.
