• Free Use of High-Tech Boardroom for Nonprofits

    POSTED January 7, 2022

W Minneapolis - The Foshay has introduced a new initiative “Welcome at W” that provides nonprofits complimentary use of its boardroom to help plan, prepare and propel Minneapolis to a new future. The Foshay was one of the first hotels in Minneapolis to adopt WeFrame, an innovative meeting room smart board technology that nonprofits can utilize. 

The boardroom is among the 6,700 square feet of meeting space at the 32-story hotel, which is located downtown in the Foshay Tower and features 229 recently renovated guest rooms. There are seven meeting spaces, with the largest holding groups of up to 342.

Other Hotel Highlights

  • The Foshay’s newly renovated guest rooms blend Roaring 20s art deco splendor with a modern edge. 
  • Foshay Museum and Observation Deck is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the Twin Cities and one of the few open-air observation decks in the nation. Visitors can experience 360-degree views on the 31st floor of the hotel and learn about the history of the 1929-era Foshay Tower, one of the most prominent obelisk-shaped skyscrapers around. 
  • Named one of America’s top 10 steakhouses, Manny’s Steakhouse is a prime place for dinner. Indulge in USDA-Certified, dry-aged, center-cut beef, a 300-bottle wine list and more. 
  • Looking for a cocktail or place to relax after meetings? If so, head to the hotel’s Living Room, a tribute to the Art Deco facade of the building, or step back in time on the 27th floor in Prohibition Bar, where Wilber B. Foshay’s private, full-floor office and retreat has been restored to its original glory and converted into a speakeasy.

Nonprofit organizations interested in checking availability and using the property’s boardroom can contact Trina Anthony, W Minneapolis - The Foshay, at at trina.anthony@whotels.com.

Minneapolis was selected as the location for the first-ever VeeCon, being billed as a “super un-conference.” On tap is a lineup of keynote speakers, educational talks, panels, Q&A sessions, collaborative experiences and A-list entertainment for an audience of 10,255 VeeFriends token holders. It’s the first event of its kind that will be using NFT technology to provide access, build community and deliver experiences.


Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Minneapolis, located in a new 34-story building at the top of Nicollet Mall, the city’s pedestrian thoroughfare, is expected to open its doors in June 2022. Only a few short blocks from the Mississippi River, the mixed-use complex also will serve as RBC Wealth Management’s U.S. headquarters.

The Highlights


For more than 100 years, the Dayton’s building has been an important piece of Minnesota’s culture and economy as the home to Dayton’s and Macy’s department stores. The department stores served as anchors for the downtown retail and business district. Now, the landmark building at 700 Nicollet in downtown Minneapolis is being reinvented for the 21st century through a $350 million historic redevelopment.
