It's like having your head in the clouds, your stay at W Minneapolis - The Foshay, a soaring landmark of 1920s art deco splendor, is both legendary and cutting edge cool. Infusing the city's historical and cultural heart with contemporary luxury and a fashionable attitude, you're never far from sophisticated entertainment, world-class dining, trendy shopping and top-flight professional sports. Start off with a high by taking in the entire city from the hotel's observation deck-the only one in Minneapolis.

Stake your claim on the best of Midwest dining at Manny's, famous for fabulous steaks, or celebrate the comfort of home-cookin' at Keys Cafe. Sip freely in our sky high Prohibition bar, or linger and mingle in our cozy Living Room. And after all that indulgence, why not work it off at the fully-equipped SWEAT Fitness Center or rejuvenate and revitalize with pampering spa services and massages customized just for you in private, luxurious treatment rooms?

When you're ready, unwind in your spacious room, fully stocked with every comfort, including a state-of-the-art entertainment system and a Munchie Box full of delightful surprises. Your four-legged friend will feel just as welcome with its own bed, turndown treat and personal bowl. For taking care of business, your room is completely wired so you're always connected with the world. And if you need anything else, our Whatever/Whenever team is on duty 24/7/365 to take care of all wishes and whims. (And if you like, take a piece of the W home from W The Store.) Whether you're here for business or pleasure, we'll help you enjoy the best of both worlds. Take time out from high-powered sessions at the global corporate headquarters or the University of Minnesota to check out the next big thing in the indie music scene, take in an exhilarating performance at the theater, opera or symphony, or cheer on the Vikings, Twins or Timberwolves.

Location Summary
Known as the modern and hip twin to the more conservative and quiet St. Paul, Minneapolis is home to the area's financial district, just steps from W Minneapolis - The Foshay. You're also in the city's hot spot of architectural and cultural gems, such as the Hennipen Theater District, the Minnesota Opera, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Weisman Art Museum, Orchestra Hall, the Walker Arts Center and Sculpture Garden and the new Guthrie Theatre. Jocks, take heart, the Timberwolves hoop it up at Target Center and the Twins and Vikings call the Metrodome home, all within walking distance of the hotel.

If you're looking for more style and wild, the Mall of America and Minnesota Zoo are just a few miles down the highway, in addition to the historic St. Anthony Falls, beautiful Stone Arch Bridge and scenic Chain of Lakes. Why worry about winter? Miles of climate-controlled skyways with heated footpaths mean you can work, shop, dine and explore without having to brave the elements. And when the weather gods are smiling, stroll down Summit Avenue and gaze at one of the finest collections of Victorian residential architecture in the nation, where F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sinclair Lewis and Garrison Keillor once lived. Here for work? A large portfolio of Fortune 500 and blue chip companies are a short drive away.
