I stayed at the Minneapolis W in January 2017. It is a typical W, but I had two atypical problems that I have not encountered before, one with billing and one with service: (1) I booked a prepaid, confirmed rate via SPG.com and received an upgraded room due to Platinum status, but when I received my bill, the hotel had...

Hello roll24tide- As a valued Platinum member, you were upgraded to the next room category which due to a system issue automatically changed the rate on your room. Thankfully it was brought to our attention prior to check out and our welcome team was able to manually adjust to mirror the original rate. Again we sincerely apologize for the billing...

Love the W - 3rd time we have stayed with our golden retriever and rescue dog. Staff are always friendly and accommodating. Great restaurants / bars - Manny's steakhouse, Living Room, Prohibition (and Keys - nice breakfast place). I know a lot of folks are concerned with the rooms - we have always liked ours - though I do agree...

I thought this place was supposed to be upscale but it is not. The rooms are old and in serious need of work. Colors are horrible too. The name of the hotel sounds cool but I would try somewhere else.

This is one of my favorite W hotels in the country. The staff here are always friendly and consistently go above and beyond.

The hotel seems rundown. Halls are shabby. Bathroom toilet handle needed to be held down. Bathroom sink was clogged. Bathroom door was hard to close. Bed was comfortable. Pillow was nice. The room was really small for $200.00 ridiculous.

I have stayed here twice and both times have been wonderful and high end. Quiet and private is best way to describe each floor. Security and access to your floor requires a room key which I appreciate as a woman.

Nice old school W hotel, the check-in experience was excellent as a true W experience. The Room was very spacious and with a great view.
