Overview

Executive-approved stay in downtown Winnipeg with a saltwater pool and hot tub and highly-rated cocktail bar

The Lowdown

Built by the high-profile Richardson family in 1970 as a modern business hotel, this imposing 340-room landmark has hosted royalty and heads of state. Guest rooms have large windows with views of the famous Portage and Main intersection and the scenic Forks National Park recreation area. The property’s restaurant and lounge are hubs for visiting executives who sip cocktails in the popular lounge before heading to the Velvet Glove restaurant to sample Canada’s finest seasonally-inspired produce, from organic greenmarket salads to Manitoba applewood-smoked salmon.

In the Area

Head to The Forks for an afternoon’s worth of diversions from shopping for organic baked goods to locally-made cheeses at The Forks Market, to exploring the history of human rights at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR), founded in 1967 as Canada’s first national museum. Stargaze on Main Street at the Manitoba Planetarium, a short walk from the hotel, where you can marvel at a simulated night sky consisting of 9000 stars and the Milky Way. Peruse the world’s largest collection of contemporary Inuit art at Winnepeg Art Gallery, then browse the shelves of Canada’s answer to Bergdorf Goodman at cult department store Holt Renfrew.

Very good service and facility throughout the conference made the event a success. The thermostat setting was a bit on the cool temperature side especially at the banquet. Our hotel room was very accessible and had one of the best bathrooms we have experienced.

Iconic Portage & Main
Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed at the most famous corner in Winnipeg - Portage and Main, in the heart of the downtown. The location was very convenient to other key locations and attractions in Winnipeg; the baseball stadium, hockey arena, Canadian Human Rights Museum, Museum of Man & Nature, The Forks, etc. The hotel itself was excellent, well maintained and well staffed.

Banquet experience - excellent service

Our server - Ken - was excellent. He was genuinely concerned that we have a good night and was very courteous, friendly and efficient. We felt like we were his personal guests and he did everything he could to make our evening go smoothly. Thanks, Ken!
