“Elegance in the best location in winnipeg”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

The Fort Garry Hotel is an elegant reminder of athe gracious way of the past. Beautiful Palm Room bar is a great way to begin or end an evening. The breakfast buffet is lovely and service generous. Rooms are in need of a bit of a facelift; however the service, cleanliness, quality of linen and choice of bed type more than make up for the ravages of time!an added bonus: coffee in a silver service at your door with your newspaper in the morning. For the price...you get much more than anticipated.

I've stayed in the Fort Garry Hotel several times, both on business and personal visits and I've never been disappointed. I'll echo some of the other reviews: beautiful elegant hotel with comfortable rooms, fabulous staff and delicious breakfasts. I love the 24 hour coffee and tea service that comes on a silver tray with cookies. Beats having to use one of the machines you get at most places! We also had an opportunity to visit the Ten Spa for a wonderful massage. Had trouble sleeping two of the nights as our neighbour had the TV blasting. One of the drawbacks of an older hotel I suppose. Also, there was a charge for the internet and it didn't work well so that was a little frustrating. But overall this is still the best place to stay in Winnipeg and we'll be back on our next visit!

Room Tip: Make sure you specify if you'd like a room with a bath tub as some rooms only have showers.

Stayed here during a conference and all I can say about the rooms is yuck! The decor is horribly outdated and did not make for a comfortable stay. The oly saving grace of this hotel is lobby area and restaurant which were quite nice. That said you usually want a comfortable room for a hotel stay, so there are better options out there.

Laura W, Marketing Director at Fort Garry Hotel, responded to this review, 17 July 2012
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Feedback from our guests is always appreciated. I was disappointed however to read that the decor of your guest room resulted in an unfavourable impression on your overall stay. Our guest rooms feature deluxe plush Turkish cotton towels and robes, fine Italian bed linens, feather mattress, down duvet and pillows to provide a comfortable visit for our guests. We are also pleased to provide 24-hour complimentary coffee/tea and cookie delivery service to ensure you are able to relax and leave the service details to us.

Should you return to the Fort Garry, I encourage you to speak with the Front Desk during your stay if you are not satisfied with your guest room as it may be possible to relocate you to an alternate room.

Again, thank you for staying with us and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to The Fort Garry Hotel, Spa and Conference Centre in the future.

Kind regards,

I stayed here for two days one night . Breakfast was fabulous with a chef ready to cook with whatever you order. I was charge $160 only that's with 5 star breakfast for two! and a parking! not bad! The only negative comment I can say is the price to get an internet connection but they offera free internet use for public at the front desk.

Elegant is an understatement, simply GORGEOUS entrance and restaurant on main floor, the best gym I've ever used at a hotel (it's complimentary), the room was spacious and large, the staff were real pros and friendly, i would recommend this place to anyone
