We were treated like royalty at the W, and loved every minute of our stay. Arriving quite late after white-knuckling a several-hour-long drive to Minneapolis during a snowstorm, we were greeted with kindness and hospitality, as well as offered a room upgrade. We were visiting for my husband's birthday and a Wild game, and were pleasantly surprised to be given...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

My wife and I needed a get away. Friends had said good things about the "W" and we decided to check it out. We joined their loyalty program SPG in advance of making our booking through that tool; booking a junior suite for a little more room and luxury. On arrival, we were informed that we'd been upgraded to a...

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.

My partner and I stayed in a Cool Corner Room from March 2--March 5. We LOVED it! All of the service we received, from the valet to the room attendents to the front desk staff, was phenomenal. I initially had a small complaint about our first room, and the manager got us settled in a new room, within 10 minutes....

I stayed at The Foshay last weekend for two nights. First, I have to say I loved the vibe. My 22 year old son described it as a club with rooms due to the scene in the pre-lobby area. While I'm not into "clubbing", I did appreciate the lack of stuffiness. Plus, they offer cosmopolitans upon check-in! Second, I have...

I travel to Minneapolis monthly for business, and highly recommend staying at the Foshay if you're able. I've frequented most of the other hotels in the area if for some reason the W is booked, but nothing else compares. The staff are incredibly hospitable and observant, and tend to anticipate my needs before I even ask. The space is clean...
