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.

Exceptional Experience
Reviewed 1 day ago

From Mattaeus at front desk to Willy the Bellman, this property couldn't have a finer understanding of great customer service. Not only does the hotel bathe itself and its guests in luxury, the staff all truly seem to enjoy their jobs and, providing that little something extra that you don't get elsewhere.
Although on the pricier side of 4 star properties, after spending the night you understand why. Leaving rested and at home one is left with a feeling of money well spent and a longing to extend your stay to further take in the glory of the Fairmont. This is everything a hotel should be.
Definitely the only hotel to stay at in Winnipeg if you want to feel like your appreciated and deserving of some pampering.

Always a Great Stay!

Arrived to Winnipeg late on a cold Sunday night and was quickly escorted to my fabulous room at the Fairmont Winnipeg, arranged by Kareen and Wendy. The room was great; very hospitable! Always great to come back to Winnipeg and a great hotel!

Winter in Winnipeg

Had 4 great nights in Winnipeg at the Fairmont. Smooth check in for a late night arrival due to delayed flights and a nice surprise in the room left compliments of Wendy Richey.
Always wonderful service at the hotel - Helpful staff, great lounge and central location.
Business takes me to Winnipeg 6 to 8 times a year and i always make the Fairmont my #1 choice.

Food sucks here
Reviewed 1 week ago

Very expensive and not good. Sent back my first meal the Tuna Poke bowl and then had Caesar salad which sucked. Croutons were dry lumps of stale bread and pork belly was tasteless. Not impressed. Very expensive and not worth it.

Very enjoyable stay

My wife and I stayed at the Fairmont Gold Club level and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff were friendly and courteous and the complimentary continental breakfast was fabulous. The only "negative was we stayed in a room with 2 double instead of queen beds.
