We travel to Winnipeg annually to visit family and usually stay at the Fort Garry. We enjoy the breakfasts, the fitness facility and pool and the central location. Although our stays have usually been great, this last visit was a very strange one. First of all even though we require a family room for the four of us, our room smelled smoky and musty, there were cigarette butts in the plant. On the second day, we found two pizza crusts in the corner of the room and complained, the housekeeping woman was very nice, but clearly did not
believe us when we explained they were not there the previous night. We got the feeling that someone was coming into the room for breaks! And finally the ceiling was very water-stained, and actual pieces of plaster were falling onto one of the beds. The housekeeping staff noticed the leaks and the front desk had offered to change our room, but when we got back at 10pm, we were too tired to do so. While the staff obliged us with a complimentary late check-out on the last day,
I felt that given the odd problems with our room we should have been given more consideration. Our latest stay was certainly in contrast to our previous good experiences, perhaps the hotel is renovating floor by floor, and has yet to reach the ninth floor...don't stay on it!
