Positive Reviews

Critically acclaimed bar and steakhouse

You will definitely be wowed with luxury, class, and amazing views of the city's skyline offered by the Prohibition Bar. The crew is amazing and serves guests with personal attention. Manny's Steakhouse, on the other hand, is loved by guests for its menu that runs through a host of delicious-looking cuts of beef.

Breathtaking rooftop view

W Minneapolis - The Foshay's rooftop and the observation deck on the 30th floor offers immaculate views of downtown Minneapolis and the Minnesota River Valley. This perk surely sets the hotels apart from other hotels in the area.

Excellent customer service

The staff members have a reputation for being accommodating, friendly, and hardworking. They will ensure that everything runs smoothly during your stay. Moreover, they are extremely approachable and can communicate well.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are quite dark

Some rooms are quite dark and have weird lighting systems that were difficult to turn on and off. Moreover, you might find it difficult to find outlets to charge your gadgets. However, you can always ask the management to transfer you to a room you're more comfortable.

Faulty elevator system

In order to access the rooms, you have to insert the room key into the slot in the elevator. However, at times your key wouldn't work. When this happens, you can ask for your key to be re-magnetized or someone from the front desk assist you in using the elevator.

Disturbing noise from the elevator and hallway

When you are in a room directly across the elevator, the constant mechanical whirring might irritate you. Moreover, the doors are thin so noise from the hallway can be heard. In addition, they have two popular bars and seem to be frequented by young crowds. Thus, make sure to tell the receptionists about your room preferences upon checking-in.
