The Grand Winnipeg Airport Hotel
Ranked #5 of 63 Hotels in Winnipeg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I stayed at The Grand over a weekend stay in Winnipeg, and I was very impressed! The hotel is very new, with large spacious rooms, bathroom, etc. They also have modern features like Keurig machines in every room, an iPad that you can use during your stay, etc. Rooms are very clean and I enjoyed the view over the airfield. The front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We didn't realize when we booked that it is RIGHT at the airport - but actually it was a bit of a perk, since you can easily run over to the terminal to Tim Horton's, Stellas, the liquor store, etc.

I was holding off on my review as there was an error in my bill and I wanted to see how it was handled. Very pleased to report it was dealt with immediately and effectively upon emailing the hotel.

I'd definitely recommend staying here - perfect for business travellers or if you have an early flight. Much, much better than most of the hotels around the airport.

Room Tip: Make sure that your room doesn't directly face the parkade.

This is a very new hotel that has the delightfully clean and fresh feeling that new hotels generally have. While it isn't opulent, it is definitely luxurious and it offers some great perks that you don't always see in this type of hotel like spacious rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, large bathrooms with an attractive modern design, fridges and Keurig coffee makers, large screen TVs with extra features such as a PVR, and as others have noted, the vaunted in-room iPads with Netflix which is enough on its own to make me come back. (I couldn't get Netflix to stream to the TV, but the front desk clerk told me that it is possible...)

Our room was very quiet and you could only hear planes if you strained your ear - this despite being right by the airport's runways. The design was modern and minimalist, although slightly austere. The hotel offers bellhop service which is rare in Winnipeg, and there is an exercise facility that is better than average. There is a nice looking restaurant in the hotel, although we didn't try it. Service is friendly and polished. Parking is $10 a night in the airport parking garage. The location can't be beat if you have to be at the airport, as the terminal is about a 1 minute walk away.

Note that rooms facing the east have no view as there is a drab parking garage next door, although if you're high enough you might see a bit of the city off in the distance. Rooms facing the north and west have views of the terminal, airfield and a nice prairie sunset - there is quite a stark difference in quality of view depending on which side you're on.

Room Tip: If the view matters at all, opt for a room facing the west side of the hotel.

What an excellent hotel! I usually try to avoid airport hotels and this one is right at the new terminal in Winnipeg. However, this is a well put together property with excellent service. The hotel seems brand new and EVERY room has an iPad with which you can control the TV or simply surf the internet. The iPad all have Netflix accounts too so you can stream directly. There is Free wifi in the rooms and the restaurant is excellent too. Downtown Winnipeg is just a 15 min cab ride away so you don't feel cut off. I have stayed at other properties previously in the 'peg but I think I found my new home!

My husband and I stayed here after I had surgery. The hotel staff was extremely warm and welcoming. This is a quiet hotel with beautiful rooms and a great restaurant. This would be an ideal location if travelling as it's right next to the airport. We will be staying here again for sure!

On arriving at the airport very late and tired it was a joy to experience a comfortable, quiet room. The facilities were excellent and staff very helpful and friendly. Thanks to everyone. I will certainly stay at the Grand Lakeview again.

This hotel has become our favorite hotel in Winnipeg. We have stayed many times, and each and every time the friendly customer service, from remembering us by name to the personal attention, is second to none. Everyone from the bellman to the front desk staff to the restaurant and lounge staff go above and beyond every opportunity. The rooms and entire hotel are modern, clean and comfortable. The beds are fantastic. And the special bottles of water are a very nice touch. We will be staying each visit to Winnipeg, whether we are flying out of the airport or staying within the city. My husband also stays here when traveling for business for the same reasons. Second to none!

Room Tip: Love to King Corner Suites....fabulous views

Hidden gem in terms of hotels in Winnipeg. Great staff, complimentary bottle of water, chocolates in room and Keurig coffee.
I didn't use it but there is an iPad in each room with apps for hotel services.
