My room was great - got a Deluxe King, which the front desk attendant said was an upgrade, but I think that's just something they say to make you feel special (it worked). Room was spacious, great looking, comfortable. Staff went above and beyond. Sia, who works the front, was an absolute doll, made sure I had everything I needed/wanted...

A couple of decades ago, Starwood had no properties in downtown Minneapolis. Now, there is an embarrassment of riches. The W Minneapolis Foshay is a gem. It’s a tall, slender tower, so each floor has only ten rooms, four of which are corner rooms. These are very elegant, and comfortable. Try to snag one, if you can. And don’t miss...

My husband and I spent two nights at the W and booked the rooms via their website. First walking in, we were greeted by friendly valet staff and a beautiful lobby. Checking in was a breeze, however, we didn't get into our room until 4:00PM when check in was at 3:00PM?? Made us feel a little rushed when we finally...

This hotel was terrific. The rooms are sleek with the best bathroom showers. Very nice amenities. Matthew at Reception was most wonderful. Moved my room to have the best view, sent a handwritten Congratulation card for my recent marriage. Food and overall service was excellent. I highly recommend this venue. Only thing missing was coffee maker in the room.
