Great service, really cool rooms in the tower. 27th floor has an amazing bar - lounge. Quiet and good service. Downstairs bar-lobby has a central fireplace. Very cozy. Staff charged me the wrong room rate, but when I called, they fixed it lighting fast. Really awesome service.

The hotel itself when you walk in seems right out of Vegas. Pink lighting, interesting decor, they made us a drink at check in. I mentioned it to the staff that it was my wife's birthday and asked what I could do special but they blew me off for the next guest. The room was a corner room and it...

I booked this hotel for our anniversary as we stay here every year and eat at Mannys. Showed up at the hotel and they had no reservation. They had one room left and tried to charge me $550 so I stayed down the street at a different hotel for under 100 bucks. They valeted my car and then robbed me...

The Foshay has a wonderful hotel W that operates within this building. I have stayed there twice and both my stays have been spectacular. The tower, I have been told is the first skyscraper of Minneapolis, I like to believe that even if not true. That being said the building is different from any of your stays at another hotel....

Had a great stay at the W during a recent business trip to the Twin Cities. The property is well kept, the rooms modern and clean, and the staff friendly. Great location with easy access to downtown, and the Prohibition bar on the 27th floor is great place for a nightcap. Definitely lived up to my expectations.
