The hotel is very centrally located and it was a stone's throw from the office where I was sent to work for 12 days. Therein lies the problem. Downtown Winnipeg is not nice. The few people wandering the street after the offices close at 5:00 p.m. and during the week ends are not the type you would like to encounter. The place is desolate and uninviting if you would like to walk instead of taking taxis.
As for the hotel, I was pleasantly surprised. They now have free wi-fi in the rooms, the gym is very ample, clean, with an array of machines and weights and also a good swimming pool and whirlpool.
I asked for a quiet room and got one on the 16th floor, away from the elevators and facing the side of the building and noticed that the windows are double glazed, so noise was almost unnoticeable. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable (maybe a little too soft for my taste) and the bathroom clean and spacious. I particularly enjoyed the warm floor in the bathroom.
The room also has an ironing board and iron, which is handy. It did not bother me that the TV was in a cabinet and I found that noise is insulated from room to room as I did not hear my neighbours. I did hear someone one evening walking on the room above back and forth, although I cannot understand why as the rooms are carpeted. It must have been someone very heavy footed!
The staff was super! Always smiling, ready to serve, very accommodating, and that is an important point. I could not say anything negative whatsoever about the people at the front desk, the concierge, etc.
However, nothing is perfect. Contrary to some other hotels, the price of the room does not include the breakfast. I found the breakfast overpriced and not that great. Last time I was in Winnipeg I stayed at the Humphrey's Inn and you can read my review of it here in Trip Advisor also. The breakfast there was included and it was great! Why can't the Delta which is a chain offer a better breakfast and why does it not include it in the price of the room?
Moreover at the Humphrey's I got a newspaper at my door every morning, which I could take to read while having breakfast. Delta has abolished providing newspapers to guests, so if you wish to read one while having breakfast one must go to the front desk and ask for it. I found it a little bothersome having to plead for a newspaper every day. The least they could do and it was my suggestion to them, is that they asked guests on arrival whether they would like to have the paper delivered to their door in the morning. Anyway, they said they have placed that on my profile and next time they will do so.
I also had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel and was not impressed and did not considered it good value.
Would I return to the Delta Winnipeg? Certainly because of the free wi-fi, gym, and rooms but not for the food.
