Unique Contemporary Venue, Remarkable Service
I actually proposed to my (now) wife at the W Hotel Minneapolis Foshay last year. When it came time to select a wedding venue, we visited at least 10 different potential venues. The last location we visited was the W Hotel Minneapolis. After just 5 minutes, it was immediately clear that we wanted to host our wedding there! Not only does the space hold a lot of personal meaning to us, but it’s also an AMAZING, world class event space with an unusually ultra-modern throwback aesthetic. UNIQUE LOCATION We fell in LOVE with the compelling history of the Foshay Tower, as well as its modern decor and aesthetic. It’s interesting that this venue is both modern in its furnishings, but also pays attention to the rich history of the building. Photographically, there are multiple spaces in the hotel which are unique and beautiful. The exterior of the building, of course, is iconic if you’re from Minnesota. The W Hotel Foshay is a pretty unique place that you just can’t find anywhere else in Downtown Minneapolis. If you want a contemporary (hipper than hip) downtown wedding (like we did) look no further than the W Hotel Minneapolis Foshay. SERVICE For our wedding, we worked with Jodi Bahr (catering sales manager) and Brandon Peterson (complex sales coordinator) who were both remarkable. Jodi took the time to answer our questions (there were many) and was remarkably flexible with any curveball we threw at her, especially the day of. Everyone on the waitstaff and hotel staff is extremely professional and friendly. Our guests were in terrific hands. CATERING Our wedding was about 130 guests. The catering is from Parasole, the same company behind some of the Twin Cities most prestigious restaurants like Manny’s and Pittsburgh Blue. Wedding food can often be hit or miss, but our guests left our wedding incredibly pleased with the plated dinners and world class service from the waitstaff and bartenders. We received multiple comments from our guests on how the food was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding. The chairs in particular are very cool looking and more importantly, are exceptionally comfortable and cushioned. Even the ceiling lighting is eye catching with circular fixates that emit a striking magenta-purple hue. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Our special day was truly amazing. The venue and the W Hotel Minneapolis team definitely were a huge part of that. This is a remarkable space to host your event, especially a wedding. We recommend Jodi, her team, and the venue in high regard.
