This is a great hotel. The lobby and bar areas are stylish, dimly lit with cool furniture and good music. Like a hot nightclub but without being obnoxious. Check-In service was great. The room (a corner one) was lovely and comfortable. There's a good Indian restaurant across the street; a yummy diner around the corner; and it's an easy walk...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 April 2017

First of all, for a group of 4 in their mid-20's coming into the cities for a show, this hotel was close to ideal. On arrival (3pm sharp on Friday if you want to get the red carpet treatment), staff caught us off guard with a celebrity like reception. Manhattans, champagne, and a room upgrade to higher floors/better views. The...

Good location for business, and running on the river; very quiet rooms. The gym is nice; not fantastic. At $220 + tax, it's good value. Only downside: no bathtub :-( I also don't like the fully loaded minibar, which I find hard to resist, especially if I can't unwind in the tub...

Recently visited the W and had a wonderful stay! Carly at the front desk was just a delight and set the tone for a great stay. The Foshay is beautiful, clean, and in a great spot. The housekeeping staff went above and beyond, too! Can't wait to return!

The W is very unique and very modern in a lot of good ways. Room was clean and very functional for what I needed to get done. One of the softest comforters I've ever used.

Foshay -great unique place for a drink before you head to dinner,or an after dinner- drink. This place shines at night---enter into Foshay or (W hotel) and walk through the colored lobby. Take elevator to 27th floor -and you'll enter Prohibition-a unique bar area---some tables very private may have to reserve. Drinks are expensive but place is classy. There is...

Since there are not many good hotel choices in Minneapolis, this place may be acceptable to some but compared to other Ws this place is awful and I've stayed in over a quarter of all Ws. There are Alofts that are much better than this place, W should really consider taking this hotel out of their portfolio. The bad experience...
