Rated 4 out of 5 by AroundTheWorldAndBack Great Hotel, Great Staff
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 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.

My 15-year old son and I had a wonderful time in the E-Wow suite on August 8 and 9. My 12-year old son and I look forward to our return stay on August 22 in advance of attending the State Fair.

This hotel is a very unique, historic and interesting place. I enjoyed the observation deck and onsite museum. The staff was very helpful. The beautiful art deco entry way had me at hello.

I stayed here to celebrate my girlfriends birthday on a weekend.
CHECK IN: Was smooth and I want to welcome ERIC to the front desk at the W.Minneapolis. He did an excellent job.
ROOM: Was a beautiful corner FANTASTIC SUITE with an amazing view of Minneapolis.
W INSIDER: I want to immensely thank LISA for the birthday cake and for delivering the birthday flowers and balloon to my room. I also wish to thank her for making last minute reservations for us to dine at Manny's Steakhouse.
DINING: I dined at Manny's Steakhouse. I want to thank all the managers including DAVE for being courteous and sweet every time that I have visited. Above all I want to thank SAMANTHA and ALAN who have always been the sweetest ever at Manny's.
I made sure that I personally gave a piece of my girlfriends birthday cake to SAMANTHA AND ALAN.
W. STAFF: I want to thank everybody at the front desk including BRIAN for making my stay comfortable. Above all I wish to thank JAMES for the amazing person that he is. Thank you for everything JAMES.

Stayed in May and paid half the rate for a larger room that included WiFi. For the August stay the room was very small. Only bed and one desk chair for twice as much.
