My favourite hotel

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Well, it's in Winnipeg...
The Fort Garry is my favourite hotel in the world. The staff is welcoming, the rooms are comfortable, the bar is beautiful - with a great lounge pianist - and the breakfast is fantastic. I want to live in this hotel. I last stayed there in 2006 and looked forward to this visit. It didn't disappoint.

Initially provided room not good

Posted Oct 10, 2014
Overall, this hotel has a grand feel and tons of charm, great location. My only issue was the room I was initially assigned, when I entered there had clearly been a major clean-up, a large fan was running and an ionizer in addition to a very bad smell. Housekeeping came, a young man who didn't have the best insight into the situation, only that the carpet must have been shampooed. Once it was clear that the smell wasn't going away, I asked the front desk to give me another room, which they quickly did. This incident was more stressful as I arrived late after a long day's travel.

Comfortable and calming

Posted Oct 5, 2014
Pros: The room service coffee delivered in a carafe with your choice of cream or coffee ... no powdered milk! The coffee was strong, hot and delicious.
Cons: The charge for a bottle of Evian water. It's was nice to have, just would have thought the 1st one was included in the price.
Location: The location is central, close to some great restaurants, art centres, museums and tourists sites
We really appreciated the friendly, courteous and pleasant service, wide hallways, tall ceilings and oh so comfortable bed! The character in this hotel is soothing, making you feel at home. The coffee/tea service available 24 hours was unprecedented for us, and much appreciated. Our room on the 5th floor provided for a lovely view of nearby tourist sites with lots of greenery and a starry sky at night.

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!
