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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edizzle Perfect as ever
Starting with the welcome from James and Brian at the front desk, to the room service delivery from Shaady, and Kate in the Living Room Bar. Every time I come back to this hotel I have an exceptional time, fantastic service, great food and drinks. What more could you want?
The only downside is the fitness centre - it's a bit on the small side, but really, the Foshay Tower wasn't designed to house a gym.

My partner and I had a truly wonderful stay! The staff at this hotel were fantastic - always helpful, friendly, welcoming. They seemed to go out of their way to make our stay really perfect. I could not complain about a thing! The hotel itself is beautiful and fun and we were delighted to find a lot of "extras" available to us that made our stay even more enjoyable, such as being supplied with an umbrella and free drop off service. The food at the restaurant and room service was also excellent. This was probably the best hotel stay I have ever had :)

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrequentTraveler13 SPG TRAVEL ADVENTURE HOTEL # 2- WOW-WONDERLAND
Drove here from another SPG Hotel in Northern Minnesota after starting my SPG TRAVEL ADVENTURE to stay at all the SPG Hotels in the United States.
The staff surprised me by upgrading me to a WOW SUITE on the 26th floor. This suite was truly amazing and a wonderful W treat. There was a box of truffles in my room with two bottles of complimentary FIJI water.
Upon arriving at the hotel, I stopped by the concierge desk to say hello to LISA and DANIELLE who are always very sweet. They always arrange for a surprise when I stay that this hotel.
I did not realize but this was my 50th stay at this hotel and there was a welcome card in my room. Steven who is the manager at the previous hotel that I had stayed in had taken the courtesy of calling NICK at the W-Minneapolis to inform him that I was arriving the next day. I highly appreciate the inter-managerial communication between two different SPG brands.
Special thanks to JAMES at the front desk who is very friendly and courteous.
One of my TVs in the WOW Suite was not working and I want to extend special thanks to TOM from Engineering who tried hard to make it work even by replacing the TV with a new one. In spite of his sincere efforts the TV was non-operational. I did have a functional TV in the bedroom. Thank you for your hard work TOM.
I ate at KEYS located within the W and the food was excellent. The fresh orange juice is my favorite.
This SPG property is like home to me and one of my most favorite Ws.
I will continue to stay here while on the other hand I embark on my SPG ADVENTURE to stay at ALL SPG HOTELS LOCATED WITHIN THE UNITED STATES AT LEAST ONCE.
