Foshay Tower - Review

This tower which is now a hotel is a 32 storey building that was built inspired from the Washington Tower. It was the tallest building after it was built and remained so until the IDS Center was built in 1972. It is not only one of the finest examples of engineering and architecture but also the example of conspicuous consumption during the boom period of US.

The building was later listed in The National Register of Historic Places in 1978. This was a dream project of Wilbur Foshay who was an artist turned businessman and the founder of 3 large business empires. When he decided to build his 3rd he came up with the idea of setting up his office in the 27th and 28th floors of this tower.

Apart from all these the tower also has a platform that is opened to the public as a watch deck from where we can get a breath panoramic view of the whole city.

Foshay Tower, Minneapolis Reviews

  • The W is a nice hotel, the room was clean, with amazing views. I've stayed at many of the hotels Downtown and the W is at the top, but what really set this place apart is the service and staff. My wife and I stayed here the weekend of 09/17, we originally booked for one night but enjoyed our stay and the staff so much that we booked another night. I don't normally leave reviews but one staff member at the front desk took our stay from wonderful to Amazing. Chloe at the Front Desk was intelligent, helpful, and wonderful to talk to. She gave us fantastic suggestions on everything from what to see, food to try, and spots for an after dinner drink. Normally we like to try different hotels when staying downtown but we would stay here again just because of the experience we had with Chloe.

  • Wow. What a great hotel and a great view. The hotel is very modern and contemporary and is conveniently located downtown. It is also one of the most historic buildings in Minneapolis. The observation deck on the top floor offers maybe the best view of Minneapolis of any building. If you are not staying at the hotel, just ask the hotel desk for a key to access the top floor museum and observation deck. They are very friendly and the cost is only $10, but it is well worth it.

  • This is a very cool place to stay. It is filled with history as the tallest building in Minneapolis from 1929 to 1972. It is a very up-to-date and trendy now. The bar on the top floor is a must visit place. It is the original builder's office with different lounging rooms that wrap around the building. My favourite thing about the hotel is that it offers free bikes to borrow. The bikes allowed us to explore the city. The absolute best way to see Minneapolis is by bicycle!

  • Great location, staff, and service. Also a fantastic bar in the lobby as well at the top of the hotel (both are open to the public). Rooms are nice, but dated a bit. They need new paint and the furniture needs to be replaced. Nice large walk in shower is great as is the huge window in the bathroom.

  • Overall the hotel experience was good. I had to can for room service a second time for a toothbrush kit because the initial request call didn't have anyone come by. Not a deal breaker but after 20 minutes of waiting I decided to call a second time for it. Parking across the street is easily accessible and Manny's Restaurant had a tasty brisket lunch special. Hotel room clean and trendy, spacious, and nice showers.
