I spent 9/11 at the W and talk the elevator to the top not knowing what to expect. Wow what a super kool place to visit I felt I was back in NY at The Empire State Building. What great history with the tower, a must visit in town

We are bunch of tower fans. We do all of these, just go up and see the view. We weren't disappointed at all. Reasonable charge to go up, the wind added some fun. It was well worth it.

I stayed on the 23rd floor of the Foshay as part of the W, and went up one day to check it out. Very cool history here, I recommend going to the top floor if you are in here!

Really nice lobby, took the elevator to 30th Floor. Small museum and outdoor observation deck which affords good views of surrounding buildings. The lobby and elevators are very pretty.

Stayed in the luxurious hotel and loved it! It was a great experience especially with both a bar and restaurant downstairs. I did not realize that there was a pre-stocked fridge and that they billed whatever you took to the room. Just make sure that the front desk tells you beforehand. It was still an enjoyable place.

We walked the Skyway to the Foshay. If you do this, beware you might get turned around a bit. It is connected to the Skyway but only by escalator. Anyway, the building is a neat part of history. The deco style interior of the lobby is interesting. The museum on the top floor is filled with stories that were enjoyable... More

My daughter (age 7) and I went up to the 30th floor museum during a quick trip to downtown. The museum is small but has many original manuscripts. It didn't really capture her attention. The views from outside did. She is tall for her age and could just see over the walls. Shorter kids could get views from the corners... More
