"When you dream of the prefect wedding a lot comes to mind but when we found The Foshay it was unforgettable and beautiful past perfect. From the very time our guest enter to exiting it’s a dream. The service we received from The Foshay start to finish with the entire Wedding process was wonderful. They made us feel like family. With multiple trips to the venue to sort details eager to return time and time again. Also following up with any questions whether it was phone calls, emails you name it, the staff always wanted to make us happy and confident in our choice as our unforgettable memory that will be with us forever. We couldn't have imagined our wedding as much as a success without the staff from The Foshay."
-Thank you From The Tirado Family

"Jodi Bahr was a JOY to work with. She kept me focused and told me what I need to know for each step along way. She was incredibly professional and fun to chat with. Whatever you pay her, it is not enough! She is fantastic!!”
– Jessiac B. & Charlie P. wedding

“Dear Jodi, Thank you for everything you did in helping us plan and execute our wedding! It was truly an honor to work with someone as helpful, professional, organized and courteous as yourself. We have gotten nothing but compliments about the reception and accommodations. We could not have done it without you! All the best in the future.
-Luca & Lisa S. P.S. We will definitely be back to W for our 1 year anniversary!”

“Jodi, You and your team did an absolutely outstanding job.  All of our guests were so complimentary of the venue AND the service.  Any questions or issues were addressed quickly and respectfully.  I will recommend the W to all my friends.  Again, thank you for a truly outstanding wedding reception! Best wishes,”

“Thank you so much for everything, the wedding was everything we could have imagined. And of course the honeymoon was great :) We went to London and Paris for 10 days! It was great to kind of disconnect from the real world but it is also very nice to be back :)”
-Julie T.

"My wife and I got married at the W Minneapolis in June 2015 and had a fantastic experience! The setup was perfect for our guests; the spaces for the reception and cocktail hour are well integrated with the rest of the hotel. Our wedding was about 160 people, which was perfectly sized for the space. In the reception hall specifically, there is a lot of natural light that comes through the windows and a great natural focal point with the mural wall at one end.

The food was also one of the top highlights of our wedding reception. All the menu options are cooked in the same kitchen as Manny's steakhouse (one of the best in the city), and the quality does not disappoint. I cannot recommend the filet with whipped horseradish potatoes enough. Truly delicious.

To make our wedding as convenient as possible, we also set up a room block with the W. Many of our guests chose to stay there and thought the accommodations were very comfortable and a good value, especially considering other events around the city that weekend were driving up room rates. The hotel also did a great job with our suite for the night of the wedding, even going as far to have chocolate covered strawberries and a few bottles of champagne waiting for us after the reception.

However, the single best part of working with the W for our reception was working with Jodi Bahr and the hotel staff. They went out of their way to help us make the wedding day truly special. I was especially impressed with how easy they were to work with, especially as changes to our reception plan were happening all the way up to the night before the wedding. Jodi is a true professional that really understood the type of wedding we were looking to have. She was also great about responding to emails in a timely fashion and able to jump on the phone for a few minutes as needed.

You are in great hands with Jodi and the W Minneapolis! It is too bad you only get married once, because they were THAT GREAT to work with."
-Lucca S.

"Thanks again for all you and your staff did to make Julie's and Andrew 's wedding such a great party. For weeks we received cards and messages from attendees how what a great time and about the venue. Thank You"
-Teddy, Father of the Bride

"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."
-Jeff F.

"The W was a wonderful choice for our wedding! After reviewing and visiting countless venues for our wedding, my wife and I selected the W. We couldn't be happier with our decision. The experience of working with Jodi and the entire  team at the W was outstanding! Jodi went above and beyond the call of duty from day one to make sure that we understood all of our options and felt comfortable with the process. Through multiple in-person tours of the facility and many e-mails, Jodi tackled any and all questions with friendliness and speed. We always felt that we had an outstanding single point of contact with Jodi who has looking after us and our event. The facility and food at the W are beyond compare. There isn't better food anywhere. Period. The W doesn't include any hidden fees or room rental costs like most other places do which was a great feature for us. All told we feel we received an excellent value for a premium experience for our guests." 
-Julie S.

"The actual wedding reception was absolutely beautiful. The setup and food was excellent. Jodi, our wedding coordinator, was accessible on site. She made our daughter's wedding a wonderful success. The staff that worked the reception were professional and respectful of us and our guests. We also hosted a brunch the next morning for family and that was done equally as well."
-Liz B.

"Jodi, the whole evening was fantastic. I cannot praise your staff enough for the outstanding job they did. Mario Jimenez was with us from early morning through the reception. He is a gem. Matt and Robert were wonderful bartenders - truly first class! I also want to praise the following staff: Cathie Hall, Robert Newell, Matt Smetana, Jodie Duncan, Israel Velasquez, Jose Maquin, and Victor. I asked for all of their names because I wanted to praise them each personally for their outstanding service and making our evening so special. Please make sure that key people in the organization know how pleased we were with their service. Made the evening so nice. It was wonderful to have the extra rooms for sitting and visiting and several of our guests made use of them. So nice. The breakfast the next morning was perfect and again your staff was so attentive. The room was lovely with some flower arrangements from the reception; such a nice touch! I'm still a bit on cloud nine with how the whole day went . . . And a bit tired too! Thanks for all of your hard work in organizing this event! We appreciate all of your efforts...and attention to detail. Cheers!"
-Nancy, Mother of the Bride

"The W Minneapolis has always been a favorite spot in the cities for my husband and myself. When we were looking at wedding venues we searched all over the cities and I am pretty sure toured every venue we could, but weren't finding exactly what we were looking for. When we toured the Foshay it just felt right for so many reasons. We worked with Jodi and she was so wonderful throughout the entire process. The space was beautiful and the food was spectacular. We had so many compliments from guests. We were so happy we went with the W Minneapolis! They made our wedding truly special."
