W Minneapolis - The Foshay
What it is
A glamorous 1929 tower reborn for today’s glitterati, with a 30th floor observation deck, much-loved steakhouse, Prohibition Bar on the 27th floor, and so much more.
What it isn't
Just for humans. Pets are more than welcome here; they’ll even be pampered with loaner custom dog beds and dishes for the ultimate fluffy vacay.
What we think
If the Empire State Building were ever made into an ultra luxe hotel, it might look something like this: a stunningly designed ode to the Art Deco era, with modern interiors that would wow a modern day Jay Gatsby. Each guest room option here is a stunner, beginning with the 275 square foot Wonderful, Guest Room, 1 King—where you’ll find an LED lit headboard wall, gleaming brass and leather furniture, and a signature W Bed you won’t want to get out of. For more room to roam, we love the Fantastic Suite Corner Rooms, which have sculptural sofas that snake around the skyline views in the separate living room, dazzling dining rooms, and a masculine yet spa like primary bathroom that could be a cinematic backdrop in Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street.”
You're here because
You live for a view on vacation, and the 27th floor Prohibition Bar is a dream come true: where else can you sip an orchid-topped Attitude Adjustment cocktail while watching the sun set over the cityscape?
It feels like everyone who's anyone is at Manny’s Steakhouse tonight, bellied up to the bar or ensconced in the supple leather banquettes. But you’re here for one thing only: the dry aged New York strip steak, creamed garlic spinach on the side.
