Bed was super comfortable, pillows were the best and the coffee table books were interesting and played to The W branding in a fun way. Bliss products were fantastic and all concierges were helpful.

            Room wasn't as spectacular.

            One of the worst hotels and expensive room $319/. Too many tiny towels.

          • Great location in dt Minneapolis and beautiful hotel. Modern in a classic building and prepaid for a fantastic rate of $275.40 per night plus taxes. Also loved the interior design of the room, nice staff and i ordered flowers for my wife for our anniversary and danielle the concierge was wonderful.

            A moody lobby and very low water pressure in the shower. Manny's steakhouse restaurant is expensive for breakfast.

          • The location is wonderful, the Foshay Tower is a historic skyscraper built in 1929 and rooms are very nice, hotel is very nice. The steak house below is the best in town and the Lobby is beautiful and has seating arrangements for large groups. Staff is excellent and helpful, beds are heavenly, meals are fine.

            Big design and service was good, even during busy weekend nights. Shower water pressure was low and drinks not during happy hour were very spendy $15 and up.
