The Foshay Tower, now the W Minneapolis – The Foshay hotel, is a skyscraper in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Modeled after the Washington Monument, the building was completed in 1929, months before the stock market crash in October of that year. It has 32 floors and stands 447 feet (136 m) high, plus an antenna mast that extends the total height of the structure to 607 feet (185 m). The building, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, is an example of Art Deco architecture. Its address is 821 Marquette Avenue, although it is set well back from the street and is actually closer to 9th Street than Marquette.

  • Beautiful Hotel,hotel staff where amazing people with great personalities . Helpful, kind, and courteous. The wonderful Expresso machine had no instructions nor a way to decipher what flavor was what flavor. The soap in which we were to use for a shower or to wash your hands did not have the best smell a little too strong for my opinion. Maybe something a man would like. The hotel staff made the experience wonderful I would definitely stay again. Thank you for the beautiful presentation of the 2023 New Year's bash.
  • Despite being part of the Marriott Bonvoy program for many years, this the first time I stayed in a hotel of their W brand, and the experience was great. Service was excellent during my stay both in the front desk and in the Prohibition Bar. The hotel is well-located, close to many eateries and attractions downtown. However, what most impressed me was the Foshay's design. I love hotels that have an extra care with their design elements and, in some of the major chains, it is hard to find something truly distinctive. Given the historical nature of the building, there are strong Art Deco elements everywhere. However, the interior designers were able to add many modern touches that look both glitzy and historic, while delivering a contemporary touch, especially with the use of multi-colored accent walls. Just the right amount of personality -- a little more and it would look pretentious. The rooms are also very well designed. The basic room where I stayed was definitely small (it is an old building, after all) but the use of the right furniture makes it look much more spacious. The restroom is very comfortable, and I loved the large rain shower, with the area covered with the same tiles on the walls and on the floor. Definitely a place I will return to in a future trip to Minneapolis.
