Interesting place to stay

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Location: Found a new place to eat (at 1 am) that was excellent.......Johnny G's. A must stop for us now on trips in the downtown area.
Staying at the Fort Garry is an interesting experience. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. The rooms were unique and walking the hallways is an eerie but interesting experience. We will stay here again, for sure.

Pleasant stay overall

Posted Sep 5, 2014
With some modern updates as well as many vintage cues still present, my 3 night stay was great. The lobby has many new aspects, while the classic OTIS elevators are right out of an old movie. It was a nice change from the normal big chain INNS and such. My room was a bit dated, but was charming. Great stay.

Nice and comfortable

Posted Sep 5, 2014
While the rooms were dated in appearance they were comfortable. The pool is shared with a condo building and the residents there don't seem to like kids in the pool but other than that it was nice. I found the staff durning the day very nice and helpful but in the evening I felt we were bothering them. I would stay here again it is a grand hotel

Excellent place to hold an event such as a wedding

Posted Sep 4, 2014
Pros: The facilities for holding an event were excellent.
Very elegant facilities and beautiful common areas. The rooms are acceptable but not spectacular. Room service was prompt and staff was very pleasant. An excellent place to stay. The only glitch was a 20 minute wait for your vehicle to be brought up from the parking lot which in my view is minor.

Brings back Memories

Posted Aug 29, 2014
Pros: Hasn't lost a beat,. Still the class of Winnipeg.
Cons: The piano in The Palm Room was a bit too bright . At the furthest table I still had trouble hearing. The accoustics need checking out.
A Winnipeg Landmark ! The Fort Garry has lost none of it's charm . Updated but still historic. The Palm room is a great old bar to meet old and new friends . Great ideas come from this room. It is central. You can walk to the Forks , the Legislative Buildings , The Exchange District , Portage Avenue and Main and even to Osborne Village and Corydon. Easy walk to the Goldeyes and the Jets. You don't need a car but the Parking is Private and accessible. I left Winnipeg 50 years ago and the Fort Garry was a Welcome Home. Easy run from the Airport. And a park is now being built alongside to commemorate Upper Fort Garry . Check out the Food Trucks that park along Broadway for Lunch. Excellent food! The hotel rate was very good and the Service Excellent!

Not a Cookie-Cutter Hotel

Posted Aug 28, 2014
Location: Shopping centre, restaurants, train station, theatre, The Forks-historical site with shopping, restaurants and a skateboard park.
The Fort Garry is not one of your cookie-cutter hotels. Though over 100 years old, it has all the most up to date amenities. My room was spotless, linens were high quality and the bed comfortable, though the wallpaper was dated. I had a facial and pedicure at Ten Spa, which takes up the whole tenth floor of the hotel. The spa is world class. Along with the usual services, they have a real Turkish hamam that I checked out and vowed to try on my next visit. Food services were excellent. I enjoyed the surroundings of the oval shaped Palm Room and the three piece band playing in the background. Menu offers were interesting, from gourmet to 'home away from home' choices like meatloaf and pot roast. Room service was delivered hot, well appointed and on time. Staff were bright, friendly and very accommodating. I recommend The Fort Garry to anyone wanting an experience out of the ordinary.

Old Railroad hotel built in the 1912

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Hotel has a lot of character, the breakfast buffet was excellent and reasonable. The room was just redone but was small. The hallways were old like they were built back then but they smelled very musty. The carpet should be replaced in the hallways.

Beautifuly kept Older Hoter

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Cons: Chairs could be more comfortable. I have a health condition that frequently requires the need to sleep sitting up so having a recliner in the room
We enjoyed our stay at the Fort Garry Hotel. We love the charm of the older hotels over all the modern day box hotels.

Royal and elegant

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: I liked everything !
Cons: Nothing I can think of
Location: Close to the forks...just walk over, unfortunately our train was late so we couldn't go
My son and I took the train, so he could see what it's like and we booked the fort Garry as it's so close to the train station...I had been to the hotel before for a wedding. Unfortunately our train was 5 hours late and we didn't arrive until 11 pm and a we were only spending one night and taking the train back. The hotel is beautiful, the staff is great, fancy, and elegant and makes you feel the same ! We went to the lounge for a night cap and we were treated like royalty., and we enjoyed the piano and singer ! The room is delightful and charming and cozy. We had the grand Sunday brunch, again, we were pleasantly surprised and treated so special. A wonderful stay and I would truly recommend for a special stay . We even went for a quick hot tub in the morning before brunch, very nice as well.
