The rooms were nice, clean and well equipped. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The hotel is located close to shopping and sports. The only inconvenience were the elevators not running properly and I had to wait 3 to 5 minutes to get an elevator until the last morning of my stay when that was repaired. All in all, a nice place to stay downtown.

Stayed: July 2018, travelled on business

We were able to get a really good deal here. Its nice to have the bar in the lobby and the bar up on the top floor. you're very conveniently located in downtown Minneapolis. The rooms are tiny but clean. Bathrooms are nice size with glass showers. the views are pretty great too. In my opinion, its way over priced and parking is noin existant if you dont valet for $50

Hello jeff411,

Thank you for your review and for choosing W Minneapolis - The Foshay for your visit to Minneapolis. We are happy that you were able to enjoy The Living Room Lounge on the main floor and Prohibition Sky Lounge on the 27th Floor, both of which really showcase the bold insider atmosphere of W Minneapolis as well as our guestrooms and spacious WC's. The showers really are a treat. We are so sorry that we missed the mark on your expectations for the limited parking available in Downtown Minneapolis although our valet value is competitive for the downtown area. Please let us know the next time you visit Minneapolis as we would love to have you back.

Cheers,

Matthew Galaviz Reed

The W is usually a good brand and this Hotel has great rooms and it has an interesting architectural vibe. Here's why they lose me. No exaggeration, they have 24 hour 7 days a week 80's disco pumping in the hallways, downstairs, everywhere. its so jarring to wake up and walk out into the incessant disco nightmare. The have 80's Miami Vice neon lighting everywhere as well. It seems like maybe in 1984 this hotel would have been in Miami or at studio 54, but those times are gone. The restaurant there also feels like a thing of the past, they really only serve 4 inch thick steaks, its like something out of Madmen. could get a vegetable to save my life

Room Tip: skip this hotel

Hello Joseph U,

Thank you for your review and for choosing W Minneapolis - The Foshay for your visit to Minneapolis. We are glad that you enjoyed our guestrooms and art-deco vibe that stays true to the architectural brilliance of The Foshay Tower although are sorry that we missed the mark on your expectation of W Hotels branded tunes and bold ambiance of the rest of the property. We are very proud that Manny's steakhouse has been named one of the top 10 steakhouses world wide in Men's Journal magazine which serves a wide variety of delicious steaks, seafood, and chops although we are sorry that you did not notice the many different vegetable side dishes they have to offer.

We hope that you will give W Minneapolis - The Foshay and Manny's Steakhouse another chance when visiting Minneapolis again. Please feel free to reach out to me at matthew.galaviz-reed@whotels.com so we can discuss how we can win back your W Hotels loyalty.

Best regards,

Matthew Galaviz Reed

While they spent a LOT of money and time on the lobby / bar areas focusing on the historical nature of the building, there was not much of that in the actual room. We had a corner room on the 18th floor, so a great view of a couple of building tops but beyond a modern dark color pallet .. not much else to say. It was clean, plenty of hot water, nice bed. Get to the observation deck.. great historic display inside and nice 360 degree views.

This is a beautiful hotel in an very historic building. Rooms are decorated with lots of steel and glass, yet are comfortable. Our rooms had a huge shower that delivered a lot of water. Staff was extremely helpful and nice! Great place to stay downtown.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor for the view.
