Marrying a modern hotel with a vintage historic building isn't easy, but the W Minneapolis pulls it off. U.S. News and World Report Travel says the W features "swanky style with a hint of art deco flavor," while Gayot says it "blends the roaring '20s and modern day."

Located in the iconic Foshay Tower, built in 1929 and modeled after the Washington Monument, the W spent $90 million renovating the historic building into a 229-room boutique hotel. Rooms feature signature W beds with 350-count linens, Bliss Spa bath amenities and flat-panel televisions; suites not only get you more space but onto higher floors for better views. The hotel features a fitness center and in-room spa treatments, but no pool.

The W retained the 30th-floor observation deck for amazing Minneapolis views, but the Prohibition Bar on the 27th floor has views that are nearly as good along with the benefit of wine, beer and classic cocktails. Carnivores will love staying in the same place as Manny's Steakhouse, named one of the 10 Best Steakhouses in the World by Men's Journal in 2015.
