Having stayed just one night at the Fairmont Winnipeg recently, however have frequently stayed at the Delta Winnipeg, I can compare them both.
Fairmont Winnipeg has a nice newer lobby, however was kinda unimpressed with the speed of check in for a Fairmont President's Club member, took around 7-10 mins. As a Delta Privilege member its always under 2 mins. The elevators are nicer at the Fairmont, though smaller, which would pose a problem on busy days with plenty of luggage.
I had a chance to try out the leisure center at the Fairmont. Gorgeous views up on the 21st floor, new gym equipment, nice salt water pool. Hot tub however was wayyyy too small, it only could fit about 3 people comfortably. The Delta Winnipeg has a massive health club, a hot tub for around 10-12 people and a massive lap pool.
Fairmont gets the nod on nicer rooms. Though from what I could see last time at the Delta Winnipeg, their rooms will be getting renovated. New LCD's are on the way according to management, a nice touch. Fairmont rooms are very nice though, new bathrooms and carpets, very nice.
Fairmont Winnipeg is an excellent location, but in terms of restaurants and such within walking distance somewhat lacking. The biggest annoyance that the Fairmont lacks is a convenience store or sundries stand, I wanted a chocolate bar, and was informed that the closest store to get it was 30 minutes walking away....a little silly in my opinion.
Overall, a very comfortable stay, no one should hesitate to stay at the Fairmont Winnipeg, its quiet, renovated, and a good option in Winnipeg, but could use some minor changes to be great.
