This was my first trip to Winnipeg in 30 years and I was booked into the Fort Garry Hotel. I had a great stay for the 5 nights I was there. This is a hotel built in the days when hotels were built around the railroads and it has lost little over time. True, parts of the rooms, doors especially are showing some wear, but it is truly a graceful place, with quiet hallways and very comfortable beds. I had to work evenings and had no trouble sleeping during the daytime. Everything is clean. The staff are superb, always polite and accommodating.
I had breakfast in the breakfast room every morning, where there are two chefs waiting to make what ever you want to order. This along with a selection of freshly baked pastries and fruits make a great start to the day. The food served in the Palm Lounge is exceptional.
There is a health club attached to the hotel, with passes available. You can walk anywhere in the downtown area within 15 minutes.
If I return, I will definitely stay again.
