    If you blindfolded me and told me this was a Ritz Carlton, I'd still believe you

    Food was pretty reasonably priced for a hotel in MINNEAPOLIS. The staff was very friendly and ATTENTIVE., we felt very welcomed there, So many food options , this W hotel is very ideal for us, W San Francisco, not so much

    Negative Impression

    I've been coming here for years, but tonight the staff treated some of my colleagues poorly, so I will not be back. Plenty of other higher-end hotels in Minneapolis that will treat you better. Stay there, instead.

    Fo-Sure this is a dope spot

    Great location to be centrally located in town. Hotel is A+ for dopeness. Bar is super cool. Rooms are very trendy featuring a bar cart at beds edge. Who doesn't love that, even if you aren't a drinker...snacks galore. Safety 2nd!

    Unsafe experience

    Room was broken into and items were stolen. Management was very dismissive of issues not engaging on any level. View facilty as very unsafe. Not sure what I'm more upset by getting robbed or management attitude.

    Nice but at a price...

    First we get to the hotel and it is beautiful, and a great location. We had a corner room was very nice. Was quiet and a nice way to relax. Now with no real gas stations or anywhere to buy bottles of water or soda downtown they get ya. They charge over inflated prices for their Mini Bar items but don’t have any vending machines or anything. $6 for a bottle of water? Come on are we at Disney Land? Wholesale cost for the bottle if water is like $1. Then if you drink it not only is it $6 but a 22% restocking fee on top of the inflated prices? This alone makes me not want to stay there anymore. I understand if you want to charge $17 for a drink at the bar but in the room come on get real... Also they don’t post the prices of anything in the mini bar very clearly, they have a book called “everything you need to know” guess what. The Mini bar prices are not in there, they are written in microscopic writing hidden. Only thing labeled is the Drink Me $6 bottle of water. So for a relaxing place yes stay here but stop at a store before coming.
