“Business Lunch”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I attended a business lunch at the recently remodeled Ramada Viscount Gort and was quite pleased. The food was very good, and service was impeccable. I was able to see the beautifully renovated lobby area, but did not see any rooms etc., so can not comment on them.

My company staged a corporate event this past week and our overall impression was great. The staff was accommodating, facilities top notch, and the environment was a lot of fun. We were able to store our equipment with no questions.

I stayed at this hotel on March 1st 2014. I had reserved the premium king room which was supposed to be the better of the rooms they had. The webpage is very well done thus deceiving. The service was fine but the hotel was very run down. When my cab from the airport pulled up to the building I had to as to be sure this was the Ramada Winnipeg Hotel-Viscount-Gort. It looked like a run down motor drive in motel from the outside. The hotel lobby was recently and tastefully renovated. It's a shame the rest of the hotel wasn't. I arrived at approximately 1400 hours and my room was not ready. That was fine I quite understand. The woman at the counter said it should only take 30 mins or so before it was ready. I decided to have a late lunch at the pub in the hotel. The service was fine, the food was fine, the decor/ambiance is what you would expect from a sports bar/pub. I ask you however, what kind of luxury hotel has video lottery terminals in it's establishment? I witnessed many unsavory looking characters walking in the bar to try their luck on their last five dollars. Here's a hint management... VLT's only attract the dregs and undesirables of society. If you want to attract a more sophisticated client to your hotel this is not what they want to see.

The hotel rooms are very outdated and what you would expect in a cheap motel/hotel/dive. Paper cups, a dark and dingy room, marked up furniture, paper thin walls is not what I expected nor is it what I am used to when I stay in a luxury hotel. What is a luxury hotel? Look up Hotel Nobu or Le Germain Calgary, Hyatt Regency, even the odd Fairmont (though most of the Fairmonts I've stayed in over the past few years are getting pretty run down). The rooms were clean from what I could see and the bed was comfortable. The TV was rather small and located across the room which was quite spacious I must confess. The potential of this hotel is immense if someone put some serious cash into it, preferably tearing it down and building anew.

The swimming pool is located on the third floor. The scent of chlorine wafting through the halls was reminiscent of world war one trench warfare simulation and I am convinced the couple is the next room were making a porno. While distracting for the first ten minutes the other six hours was a bit much. Will I stay at this hotel again? No, next time I'll check with Tripadvisor like I should have done in the first place.

We would like to thank you for providing us your comments about your recent stay here with us, as we take all comments very seriously.
The Hotel went under a complete 12 million dollar renovation inside and out which included every Public area and Guest Room in the Hotel. Our renovated Guest Rooms offer comfort to help the Guest feel comfortable while away from home and to try and make their stay enjoyable.
Our check in time is 3:00pm daily and we do our best to try to Guests in to here room as soon as possible; however we just had a large Group checkout of the Hotel that morning and we did not have the Room you had requested ready at 2:00pm.
I am happy you enjoyed the service and food in our Lounge. Manitoba does have VLT's located within the Lounges and Bar's in Winnipeg and we do treat all of our Lounge Guests, Hotel Guests and VLT Players with the same respect throughout the Hotel. As anyone who comes into the Hotel is always a Guest.
We do have many wonderful TripAdvisor reviews to help the Guest review what another Guests comments were on their stay and we look forward to many many more.
Please feel free to call or email me on your next visit to Winnipeg so we can ensure that your next visit here is above your expectation.

Our stay here was very disappointing as the hot tub jets were not working. We had phoned in advance to see if everything at the pool would be working and we had been told that it was.Not true! The worst part of the experience was that I accidentally left my swimsuit in the hotel room and when I phoned housekeeping two hours after departure, they insisted that it wasn't found. I know exactly where I left it so I know that someone in housekeeping has decided to keep it. The front desk staff just stated that it wasn't there according to cleaning staff and did no further investigation. I will remember this theft when planning future vacations to this city. Shauna Smith

Room Tip: Don't leave anything in the room or it will be kept by cleaning staff.

We received your review and I am sorry that our Hot Tub was down when you arrived as we had to replace a part of the Hot Tub which was leaking and we wanted to ensure it was up and running in a timely manner. Unfortunately there are things which are out of our Control.
Our Pool and Waterslide was open during this time as we did not want to interrupt the entire Pool Area during this quick fix.
I have also spoken with our Housekeeping Manager as well and we did not find your Bathing Suit in your room. I can assure you that our Housekeeping Staff are Honest and Trustworthy as all items left in any Guest Room are reported to our their Manager and noted in our Lost and Found Log Book.
We hope you provide us the opportunity to show you the type of service we provide to each and every one of our Guests.
