    This tower felt like a mini version of the State Empire building, when I reached the top, it reminded me of that scene with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan from "Sleepless in Seattle". I loved the Art Deco fee...  more »

    This is good for about a 30-45 minute experience. Inside the W Foshay lobby, the only the elevator to the far right goes up to the top floor. I think it was $8 admission collected before the elevator,...  more »

    We did not go to the observation deck, but did visit the bar which I believe was on the 11th floor. Great, pretty drinks! Awesome views out the windows and wonderful seating areas. Just a beautiful re...  more »

    This is a pretty nice hotel, and definitely not the generic blandness you get with other chains. They put a lot of effort into the design and the feel of the place, and it works well. The beds are extremely comfortable, and overall the rooms and common areas are clean and we'll maintained. Great customer service - it definitely feels personal. I would stay here again.

    Excellent accomodations. Prohibitions Bar had a great happy hour, the chicken wings were delicious. The hotel has bikes available for use at no charge. The staff in all areas were friendly and outgoing. Would definitely stay there again.

    I've been to the foshay twice now both for conferences on the second floor right above the bar. It is a very well kept place. The bathrooms are always pristine, the food is very good and the servers are very friendly. I've never gone to the bar but it looks like a very popular place come the nighttime. For fifteen dollars there is valet available. This is very nice considering the melting pot and various other restaurants are near by. You can use the valet and go to a restaurant or walk around. Overall this place is great. If you have time go to the lookout on the roof which give you spectacular views (not the best in Minneapolis but I think very good and accessible). It does cost money to go up but if you are part of a conference and some people have rooms just ask the front desk and you should be allowed to go up. Payment is only if you don't have a room. There is also a small museum telling the history of the building and owner at the lookout.

    We ate at Keys Cafe inside The Foshay. It was amazing! Definitely the best pecan pancakes in town, and we've been to most of the restaurants that serve brunch in Minneapolis. Everything is great on the menu, and a lot of it (if not all of it) is homemade. From the hollandaise to the jam, it's quite good, although I wouldn't recommend the mimosas.

    Great place. Decor was well done. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the time spent here.

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
