Win a Stay at the W Minneapolis – The Foshay


If you’ve traveled to the Twin Cities before, it’s likely you’ve at least heard of the W Minneapolis hotel. The sleek property is impressive enough in itself, but couple that with being connected to The Foshay, the once tallest building in the area that offers a 360 degree view, and one of the city’s most famous steakhouses, Manny’s, and you’ve got something that has become iconic.

Considering its presence, it might be hard to believe that the W Minneapolis is only five years old. But its true, and the hotel is celebrating in style with the Fab 5 Foshay Experience. A treasure-hunt like contest that uses downtown Minneapolis as its playing field, each Monday, for the next five weeks, a clue will be revealed on the hotel’s Facebook page, guiding you to a location where you’ll find a prize-holding W Insider. The Insiders, who will be wearing a silver “W” pin, will be at the selected locations on Fridays from 1-2 p.m.

Here’s what you could win:

  • August 23 & September 6: a one night stay in a Wonderful Room and a Living Room oak aged cocktail tasting for four. 
  • August 30 & September 13: a one night stay in a Wonderful Room and Opulent Vodka VIP bottle service redeemable at the Living Room or Prohibition.
  • September 20: a one night stay in a Wonderful Room and $100 gift certificate to Manny’s Steakhouse.

How great is that, that you get a chance to stay in the city while also exploring it?!

In addition to the contest, if you book a stay during designated weekends in August and September you can take advantage of the insider anniversary package, which includes 5 percent off the best available rate, complimentary room upgrade and parking, 250 bonus Starpoints, a commemorative souvenir, and an invitation to a hosted champagne celebration experience at The Foshay’s observation deck.

The hunt starts this week—good luck!
