There are a wide variety of places to stay in Winnipeg, but we’ve narrowed it down to our top picks:
The Fairmont Winnipeg. Though unremarkable from a purely architectural standpoint, The Fairmont Winnipeg will treat you like royalty the moment you step through the front doors. Service reigns supreme here, and you’ll swear you won’t stay anywhere else in Winnipeg because of it. Situated at the famous Portage and Main intersection, The Fairmont Winnipeg is walking distance from the city’s cultural districts such as the Forks, the Exchange District, and Saint Boniface. Newly renovated rooms provide the classic Fairmont comfort, as well as amenities such as walk-in rainfall showers and Keurig coffee machines. Upgrade to Fairmont Gold to access the exclusive Fairmont Gold Lounge on the 19th floor, providing panoramic views over the city. Enjoy your breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres, and let the staff here exceed your wildest expectations.
Inn at the Forks. A stylish contemporary luxury boutique hotel, Inn at the Forks is located in one of the city’s best locations, just steps away from the shops and restaurants of The Forks, a bustling marketplace and historic meeting place at the confluence of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers. An oasis from the downtown hustle and bustle, take in a spa treatment at the Riverstone Spa, enjoy live jazz at The Current, or simply meander outside where countless boutiques, restaurants, and theaters await.
Fort Garry Hotel. Built in 1913 in the traditional Canadian railway château style, the Fort Garry Hotel appeals to those seeking high-end luxury with a heritage twist. While the rooms are beautiful, the public spaces are the stars. Enjoy a cocktail at The Palm Lounge piano bar, and splurge on the Hamam treatment at the Ten Spa — an authentic Turkish spa in the roof of this castle. A popular wedding destination, the fairytale ambience of the Fort Garry is hard to resist.
