Photos from the W Hotel Opening Bash
Take a gander at photos of the W Hotel-Foshay Tower grand opening blow-out party.
All of the furniture in the hotel's living room (they don't use the word 'lobby') was custom-made.
The living room bar.
The lighting scheme at the check-in desk changes throughout the day.
The water closet (they don't use the word 'bathroom') of a Fantastic Suite. Probably the best view of any bathtub in the Twin Cities.
A view from the observation deck atop the building. The deck is open to the public.
The W logo was projected on nearby buildings.
'I used to be a model in my previous life,' Molly Sims, star of NBC's Las Vegas, said on the purple carpet.
At 9 p.m. the hotel's talent (they don't use the word 'staff') had a funeral procession up the block, with sad jazz music and a shimmering silver casket...
... that was full of top-shelf booze.
