I must say the Viscount has the best service of all hotels I've stayed at in Winnipeg! This is my second stay here in the past year and once again it was great.

I had to be in Winnipeg for work for 4 nights and stayed again at the Viscount Gort Hotel. I had such a good visit on my last stay, that I decided to stay there again and it did not disappoint. The staff were great, and very accommodating, and it was nice that there was free WIFI throughout the hotel.... More

Dear gazben, I am sorry that we were unable to accommodate your requests while trying to check in during your last stay. I have conducted an internal investigation in to your comments. It would appear that, while you had booked an evening’s stay with the shopping rate, your other nights were in at the regular room rate. I have interviewed... More

My wife had a booth at the mommy and kids show so we decided that we would get a hotel room the night before to make things easier. Booked through an external website and we're disappointed to learn the day of the trip that we were not getting the room pictured in the listing! We had not checked in yet... More

When I told my Winnipeg peers that I was staying at the Gort, they looked at me funny. They told me back in the days, it was not a nice place and they set my expectations pretty low. After a long day at work, I made my way to the hotel. From the outside, it looked like a work in... More

It also offered reasonably priced drinks during happy hour and great bar food. The restaurant has a great hot breakfast for $4.25, plus a beverage; approximately $7.00 per person. The service in...

We arrived and found there had been a mix up in regards to our reservations, theirs had 2 adults and no kids and my confirmation email showed 2 adults and 3 kids. The Front Desk Manager put us in another room for the same price and put a cot in for free. That's what I call Excellent Customer Service!!

We got a good rate with an online booking site so decided to try it out. Location is right near Polo Park and access may be difficult if you don't know Winnipeg so check for directions on Google maps. Access to and from Polo Park is best through the Viscount Gort parking lot on the east side of the street... More
