    Boutique hotel

    The Foshay is a boutique hotel with friendly service.There are luxuries everywhere from the time you walk in to breakfast, lunch, dinner and the room amenities.

    It would help to have some direction (vernal and/or a sign) when you first walk in that the check-in desk is at the end of the hallway which is not obvious without walking around. Of course, this may be the intent to make you explore the opulence of the lobby with lighting features.

    Nice lobby and lounge area. Convenient restaurants either in the same building or walking distance. Museum/ observation balcony.

    Our room had poor lighting, furniture had scatches and chips. Paint on wall was cracked in the bathroom. The lounge turns into a club at night with lots of drinking, it's very loud. We had a hard time sleeping due to the number of drunk people there. We had to bring ID to be in the lounge and the bouncers were really rude.

    Hip place to be

    I liked the decor. The vibe was fun and youthful. The room was decorated nice.

    Asked for a room with a view and got the 5th floor. Wanted something a bit higher in a 28 story building.

    Horrible view from the small 2nd floor room

    Friendly staff, swank bar in the lobby and on the 27th floor. Free trip up to the museum and observation deck on floor 30

    Awful view of the HVAC equipment for the restaurant below. Smallest room on the second floor.

    Do not plan to sleep on a Friday night

    Great atmosphere & friendly staff. Great view of Minneapolis & location was convenient with great dining nearby.

    People on the floor were loud & the room we had (a corner room - 2012) allowed all sound through the walls. We could hear every door opening / closing & noise from the hall. Cannot recommend for weekend unless you do not plan to go to bed until after 2 am

    Good place for a night out on the town....

    Location is great! Cool view. Good historical place. Easy to walk to places you want to go.

    No in-room coffee. I know - details, but....

    nice, but not worth the money

    Great location, steps away from anything worth doing in Minneapolis. Friendly, helpful staff and a cool atmosphere. Keys cafe and Manny's are both downstairs. Stayed in what they call a cool corner room, so there was a decent view.

    For a place that considers itself an ultra-cool luxury hotel, it was disappointing. Pretty basic room (bed, desk, TV, etc), but burnt out lightbulbs, chipped mirror, pealing paint, our floor (10th) smelled like a deep fryer, and everything costs extra (e.g. Wi-Fi is $13/day). After paying so much for the room, I expected better.
