“Convention facility at an airport gate - good, indistinguishable from many others”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

It is a large, modern facility set up for the meeting, wedding reception and convention trade. By and large they serviced our music symposium very well, except for kerfuffles with breakfasts and special diets.

If you have attended a convention at a large airport hotel virtually anywhere in the world you will find little unique here. It's easy to feel a little cooped up. Not a lot of windows or connection to the world outside ... and when you do step outside, it's in to the asphalt - and - light industrial world of the periphery of any other airport. On the plus side ... close to the terminal. On the minus ... far from shopping, restaurants, green spaces.

Service --- 5. Thanks to the very friendly front desk staff who lent access to the baggage lock-up for my bicycle. Also for local knowledge like bike routes and the swimming pool.

Value --- 4 $129 + tax convention room rate

Sleep Quality --- 5 good bed

Cleanliness --- 4 no dust bunnies, but took a couple of days for them to spot and clean up previous guest's (?) hair in bath tub.

Location --- 4 the good news - next to airport. Not so good news - near nothing of interest.

Rooms --- 5 good sized, well laid out and equipped.

Food --- 3 (this for the convention food) - lunches and the one dinner were good, nourishing, plentiful. One dinner in the on site restaurant was great. Conference breakfasts were erratic: omelettes one day, bagels and toast the next. Man does not live by bagel alone.
FOOD ALLERGY / INTOLERANCE ALERT: the convention food services were pretty clueless re: dairy free. Yes, gluten / nuts were labelled on the food service trays. But the options for actually getting some gluten / dairy free were few, and not known by serving staff.

Spa - we didn't try the water park but literally hundreds of guests, mostly children, were. It looks to be a winner. The actual swimming area in the pool would not do to swim laps (early or late, when the kids aren't barrelling down the water slide).

Reservations were handled as part of symposium Check-In was seamless and accurate. Our phoned-in request for a quiet room (5th floor) was honoured.

Noise: remarkably little noise from the adjacent airport, and that with the window, which thankfully opened, open.

Bathroom - hooray for a full sized bath tub, and for dual flush toilet.

Amenities ---
Internet - best I have seen in a hotel. True high speed.
On the down side of "Technology", the high-tech digital phone / alarm clock / radio was undecipherable. Suggested to create a card - sized quick guide to unlock the trick to using it.

Coffee maker - Coffee maker supplied, but decaf' was absent. Hotel had run out of supplies, no result for 5 days.

TV channels - fancy high-tech digital TV, like the digital phone, was hard to operate. Hotel TV's that don't return you to the channel you last watched, rather to the ad channel for the hotel, are a pain in the butt. This must be the only Canadian hotel TV that did not get The Weather Network.

Fridge - in the room, mercifully quiet, effectively cold.

Check-Out and billing was quite seamless; billing was accurate.

Room Tip: Upper floors (4 and 5) in the east wing are adults only.

WOW Great, review, Almost a point not missed. We appreciate your time to provide your experience of our hotel.
Distance being relative, we are close to the airport and but not to the glide path of any incoming or outgoing flights so it does remain quiet in and around our hotel. Thou you may not find shopping or green space right around our hotel with in 4 or 5 minutes you can reach a few small parks, a major grocery store and Winnipeg largest shopping mall. 10 -15 minutes you can reach the 2nd largest urban park in north america as well as some of large box store shopping and local unique shopping.
We do try and stay up todate with technology, I am glad that this worked our Internet management system and we will take your suggestion for the Quick reference card in the room. Thank you again .

We were so impressed of the services we received from the staff. Even in small details they were so fast and reliable. Our big event was a complete success with the help of all the staff on that day. The night manager Aries Lee was in complete control on that day. She always made sure that everything goes well and attended to. It was indeed a excellent service.

Thank you, for great comment and specifically for mentioning a staff member that made your trip better. We like to acknowledge all our staff for a great job, but there is nothing more rewarding to people then seeing their names in Lights. Thank you again we hope to see you soon.

I didn't find a single thing wrong with my stay in fact it exceeded my expectations.
It was so super clean and the staff was so friendly and the pool also a plus. It was right by the airport and I got a free ride on their complimentary shuttle bus. It is definitely the place to stay.

Thanks to the Victoria inn for providing a free room for Myself and a support driver as I bike across canada raising money and awareness for PKU. The Victoria inn was great. I was impressed by the service the cleanliness and the restaurant has a great breakfast. If you are in Winnipeg this is a great place to stay. And if you have kids they will surely love the pool.

I stayed here because I won a free night stay and I was pleasantly surprised. The gentleman I had who checked me in was fantastic. The pool was good the kids loved it, however there were alot of unaccompanied young kids in the pool. The room was ok was a few things were not cleaned properly but overall it was good.

This is a decent place to stay if you're looking to use the Winnipeg airport, or if you happen to be attending a wedding (or other event) here and like to just walk up to your room at the end of the evening. I don't think I'd recommend it to tourists as you're far from any notable attraction. There's a large pool area that looked great for kids with a water slide, but because of some larger groups staying at the hotel (on a Saturday night) it was too packed to even try. Rooms are clean, hallways are quiet later on, lots of easy parking. Very busy hotel with conferences and other functions. Very friendly and helpful service at the front desk. Online rates are a little high, especially with all of the competing hotels new to the area.

Room Tip: I'd stay away from the main hallway as there is a lot of traffic to and from the pool. A higher...

Dear Guest: Thank you for your review. we appreciate your time and Business. I am glad that you appreciated our great staff with their helpful and friendly service on such a busy weekend at the hotel.
One of the great things that Winnipeg has going for it is that compared to most other Canadian cities our airport is only 10 - 12 minutes drive to downtown and only 5 minutes from Winnipeg's largest shopping mall and restaurant area, 10 minutes from the IKEA Shopping Complex, 7-8 Minutes from the NEW unique, only available to be seen in Winnipeg; Journey to Churchill Exhibit opening July 3rd, 2014 at the Assinibione Park Zoo, which is also the 2nd largest urban park in north america, and 4 minutes from the Western Canadian Aviation Museum, I love Winnipeg because no matter where you stay your only minutes from it all!!
