The Fort Garry hotel is Winnipeg's version of New York's Waldorf Astoria or Chicaco's Palmer House. Maybe not as reputed as the Waldorf, this old-style hotel is built close to the train station and you can feel the history in the walls of this place. The bar/ dinning room is dark with heavy wood furniture and impeccable service. Hint: as an after dinner drink, try the "blueberry tea", which is a delightful mix of alcool, citrus and tea. I've stayed many times and the rooms are all different, with the same decoration. Heavy doors, carpet and furniture that brings you back in time, but with a great mattress option of either a regular mattress or the foam "Tempurpedic" mattress, which I love. Also, the breakfast buffet is fantastic, with a huge variety of high quality ingrédients. Unbeatable breakfast! So this hotel is certainly not the most modern, but definitely is a great establishment for a business stay. And don't forget to inquire about the room with a ghost...
