Historic Art Deco on the outside, party palace on the inside with steaks and speakeasy cocktails
The former stomping grounds of Midwestern business tycoon Wilbur Foshay, the 229-room W Minneapolis pays homage to its Prohibition-era roots, with flashy Art Deco interiors updated with geometric red and fuschia rugs, buttery leather chairs-for-two and naughty low lighting. Starting at 275 square feet, contemporary rooms are for today’s titans of industry with high-tech amenities like iPod docks, media libraries and 37-inch LCD TVs. Meat-lovers will enjoy the dry-aged, corn-fed Midwestern beef served at Manny’s, the hotel’s American steakhouse. And night owls can linger in the swanky lobby lounge before heading up to the 27th-floor bar, which serves Prohibition-style cocktails like the Original Sin (tequila and vanilla-hazelnut tea extract with Vietnamese coffee and coconut water ice cubes).
In the Area
In the heart of Minneapolis’ bustling downtown, the hotel is a prime jumping-off point for exploring the Twin Cities. A short walk or bike along the pedestrian-only Stone Arch Bridge will land you in the Theater District, where independent companies like the Guthrie stage such classics as Pride and Prejudice. Stroll through the 11-acre Sculpture Garden, which features works like the iconic Spoonbridge. Hark back to your mall rat days at the 4,200,000-square-foot Mall of America in the South Loop, or visit the boutique-lined Grand Avenue in St. Paul for local handicrafts and jewelry at Bibelot and high-end kitchenware at Cooks of Crocus Hill. Kick back with local hipsters with slow-roasted pork sandwiches and a glass of sangria at the Creole-style Brasa Rotisserie or go haute with foie gras meatballs at James Beard award-winning chef Isaac Becker’s 112 Eatery.
