Rated 3 out of 5 by HHG44 Quite Disappointing
We stayed from July 2nd to July 5th 2014. The hotel appears to cater to the 20 something crowd. It is dark in the lobby and in the hallways. Parking with in and out privileges is only available through the valet at $35/day is quite steep for Minneapolis. No coffee maker or tea maker in the room. We had to call the front desk to get it. I stay at SPG hotels quite often and I always liked the hotels, Dallas Meridian, Taipei Meridian, Westin Singapore, ... but The W Foshay is not one I will be coming back to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PK60 Great hotel, atmosphere and staff
I've stayed at the W Minneapolis a few times now and I absolutely love it there. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly. The bars down and up stairs offer great night life. The rooms are very comfortable. Everything is located in the historic Foshay building. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Delany22 Felt like I was in the dark 24/7
This hotel provides no lighting in any part of hotel except your room. Felt like I was in a night club 24 hours of the day, very gloomy atmosphere. Also for being a high priced hotel they did not have any extra blankets available. Brought something that somewhat resembled a blanket the second night. Very small rooms. The shower was the only positive thing about this hotel stay as they had the rain shower. Definitely not worth the money spent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EdwardDel Miss informed or provide more transparency
First when I checked in I was asked if I wanted to enroll in Green Maid services which I was told meant that if I declined Maid Services each day by placing the "Do Not Disturb" Sign out that I would earn rewards points but after the 1st day I found out I had opted out of the Maid Service because I had signed up for the Green Service. So I called the front desk to let them know I did not want to enroll on the Green Service and would like housekeeping to stop by to pick up garage and stock towels and shower items and the next two days they did not come to the room. Also you have to pay for a local phone call from the room which I don't quite understand. The umbrella that they provided are not worth the $13 and when I called down to the front desktop to ask if they had 2nd umbrella it might have been a good idea to inform the consumer that the umbrellas are not complementary instead of always answering a question without actually answering it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Miranda044 Stylish and comfortable
Very cool hotel, the lobby and hallways are too dark but the room was bright, modern, clean, and comfortable.
I thought the room service menu, including wine choices by the glass, were a little limited, but what I did order was tasty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nosmokyrooms Lines at the front desk are bad
Arrived to find a 25 minute line at check in with one attendant. Made it to front around 2:50 PM to be told that room was not ready as check in time is 3:00. I wondered if I should get in line again as by the time I reached the front it would be 3:00.
Upon arrival to room I walked in and noted that the room wreaked of cigarette smoke. I then changed rooms.
The room was not cleaned by 6:00 PM each day.
It is obvious that you do not have enough staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SkylineVolleyball Great place to chill after long days of volleyball
This was a "working vacation" for our family. We were playing in a national volleyball tourney in the conv ctr. The W is 2 blocks away from a skybridge connecting the two and it gave us just enough distance to be there fast...and get away fast. The chill environment, wonderful cucumber water, and excellent attentive staff made our stay very enjoyable!! Thanks!!

The staff at the Foshay made sure to recognize SPG status. Also, when I had a flat tire, the valet even changed my tire to the spare for me within 15 minutes. I didn't even ask for this, they offered. Now that is above and beyond! I love the architecture of the building and the food offerings within the hotel are top notch. There is a lot of restaurants within walking distance as well. Nicolette mall is a block away. One of my favorite hotels from the starwood properties,
