I travel to MN often for work and stay at the Foshay or another Starwood if unavailable. However, this time it was a mix of both as I came in to town with my best friend to see a concert the same evening. I was emailed before my stay in regards to my purpose of travel and I had mentioned...

If you like historic buildings and a cool vibe at the same time, this is a good choice in the Twin Cities. Be sure to visit the museum on the 30th floor with the fascinating story of this building and the man who was the Donald Trump of his day back in the roaring 20's. Then go look at the...

Hello Barbara R, Thank you for being our guest at W Minneapolis-The Foshay and taking the time to share about your experience.

I'm a Starwood gold and stay in Starwood properties approximately 3-4 weeks per year. This is NOT a business hotel, nor is it appropriate for relaxing and unwinding (so I don't advise bringing your family here!). I usually stay at the Westin Minneapolis, which is a wonderful hotel. This time we tried the W and it wasn't a great experience....

My husband and I recently stayed at the W Foshay while in town to visit our son. The vibe is definitely modern from the hotel lobby (only red ceiling lights), and sitting rooms (you will not be curling up with a book here) dark, gleaming, flashy and fun. The Saturday we were there a dj was rocking tunes in the...

Classic. My front desk experience (makes or breaks a hotel visit) was refreshing . Wade went over AND ABOVE MY EXPECTATIONS which made my stay even more enjoyable. I did not visit the steakhouse or diner yet heard great stuff. The Foshay mini museum is worth visiting as is the rooftop lounge. I wish I had more time but i...

This was the best stay I've had in months. I stay at SPG properties frequently. The staff is beyond friendly and the manager is very attentive. They truly anticipated my needs before I asked. My daughter and I went to the 1D concert and shopped at the mall of America. Great location. Thanks to staff for going above and beyond!!
