Editorial review:

W Minneapolis - The Foshay is set in the historic obelisk shaped 1929 Foshay tower, with an amazing Prohibition bar, the loungey Living Room and the gourmet dining provided by Manny and Key's Café. The rooms are intriguing with their avant garde geometric rugs, signature beds with goose down comforters, Bliss products in the baths, 37 inch flat screen TVs and iPod docks. If you want that little bit of extra luxury, opt for the loft like Extreme Wow! suites.

                  The design and style, both the rooms and lounge downstairs. Bathroom was divine. Bed was super comfortable. Loved the real down pillows and duvet!

                  The staff was so "cool" that they were aloof and unfriendly, and when an error was made by them they did not apologize. The lounge was great on slower nights but was teeming and crazy during a weekend conference. If a "scene" is your cup of tea, you'll love it.

                  liked the retro feel of the place coupled with the very modern room styles

                  Walkways from the hotel don't open until late on Sunday mornings which is ok in the summer but could be tricky in the Minneapolis winters

                  The Lobby bar! The Lobby is beautiful and has seating arrangements for large groups. Beautifully colored furniture in leathers and velvet make it vary classy and comfortable.

                  My Booked.net reservation did not carry through to the hotel leaving me with no reservations and a larger bill that what I had booked with my Booked.net reservation. I did however have my email print off and they corrected my bill the next morning.

                  The location is wonderful, the staff is very nice.

                  There is no free parking for guests, and the room service is very expensive.

                  The most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Very cool ambiance, 1920's meets euro hip cool.

                  One of the worst hotels, big design, lots of hype all you get is ripped off. Over priced and over rated!!!! To start out they never had our booking from you, then they charged our card over 1000 to hold for incidentals never had that done by any hotels in my life and I travel all the time, the food was horrible, drinks were $15 a piece. Had room service for dinner, left in the morning to go to our conference came back to find food was still sitting in the room, over 16 hours in the room dirty glasses still next to bed side. Cleaning person should be fired. All around bad hotel the only 2 things that were good was a free car service from Acura and James at the front desk. Sorry, will never stay here again, rather stay at the hotel minneapolis or Doubletree.

                  This was a very nice hotel. My fiance and spent our anniversary here it was everything we imagined. It was very luxurious and beautiful!!

                  When booking the hotel they were kinda misleading. I book a room that I thought had a stand alone tub( which was stated in the description) but when we checked in it there was no tub. They did not mention there were only 2 rooms with tubs and the were not stand alone either. They also had some fees that were not mentioned when I book my reservation.

                  The room was the reason I booked my stay....very beautiful and comfortable.

                  Everything extra was extremely expensive (ie. Mini bar, valet parking, room service)
