I was luck enough to stay at the Fort Garry for my cousin's wedding and the whole thing was quite the experience. It's a beautiful hotel, right in the middle of the city (I loved that you could walk across the street and be at the Forks!) with lots of fascinating history (and, rumour has it, a ghost or two!) There are no coffee machines or kettles in the room but you can call down for fresh coffee at any time. The fitness club is a bit of a hike to access - technically it's in the next building but once you get there you have access to a full gym. I also especially loved the bar just off the lobby - it felt like stepping back in time.
Keep in mind that, because the hotel is so old and is being historically maintained, the rooms are quite old fashioned. This isn't to say that they're bad, just not what you might expect from a classy hotel like this one. Embrace it!
