It was a surprise night for my aniversery and my mouth dropped to the floor. Total surprise and to have something like this in winnipeg. My fiance and I had the carribean room which was beauitful. There was a hotub, steam room, pool table, huge tv, comfy bed. We had dinner amd champaine and dinner was unreal. We both had ribs and pasta and it was delicious. It was a memorable night and the staff was friendly.

Thank you for your kind response. We often get surprise anniversaries happen at the hotel. It is really fun to walk into a suite and feel like you are getting away from everything. Dinner in the suite is always well received. It is nice to dine privately together in the comfort of your theme suite. The Italian meal with the salad course, pasta course and main meat item is really good value and very tasty. It is really good to know that you enjoyed everything and that you will recommend us to friends and family. We hope to see you again soon.

We absolutely loved Mariaggi's Theme Suites Hotel. With such a strong history and amazing rooms I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Winnipeg.

We stayed in the Hawaiian room and it had everything we could have wanted including a pool table, huge TV, steam shower and waterfall jacuzzi. The room itself was great but it's the little extras that make it such a comfortable place to stay when travelling, I loved that they provided full size shampoo/conditioner, bubble bath, hair dryer/defuser, etc. After spending a couple of days on the road Mariaggi's was a welcome break that really did make you feel as though you were a million miles away.

Thank you for your review. Our small family run hotel strives to provide great escapes for exceptional value. We are really happy that we exceeded your expectations during your visit with us. Most of our guests are from Winnipeg and the surrounding area. It is nice to be able to have guests from outside Manitoba stay with us too. Our historic exchange district is a wonderful area to walk around. The turn of the century architecture is really something Winnipeg is proud of. Frank Mariaggi an Italian from Corsica really had a neat vision of building one of the first 5 star European planed hotels in Winnipeg in the early 19th century. Each of his hotel suites had elegant furnishings, electric lights, steam heat and a bathroom with toilet, bathtub and sink. This was the new age of hotels and today many of the features Mariaggi introduced over a hundred years ago are now a standard practice. I like to think that if Mr. Mariaggi were alive today he would be introducing hotel suites like the ones we have. As you know all our suites have the hot tub, steam room with stereo speakers inside, big screen TV with DVD, stereo etc. What we really think is so much more interesting is the theme itself with all the extra little touches and attention to detail. We really enjoyed sharing our "Friendly Manitoba" service with you. We would love to see you again whenever you visit Winnipeg.

Thank you for your really kind review. To be rated 5 stars in every category is our goal. China is an exceptional suite with artwork and artifacts from China throughout the suite. The equipment in the room is top of the line. The hot tub is huge and very comfortable with the molded seating. The steam room with multi head tornado shower is always a fun unit and the sauna is so relaxing. We are not your standard hotel. It is nice to have guests write back and complement us on outstanding guest service. We are very dedicated to make your stay a fantastic escape from reality. Today everyone is extremely busy with work, social life and family commitments. Mariaggi's was built for guests to enjoy a romantic getaway without going away. A mini vacation right here in the city. Most guests understand what we are doing and have a really great time like yourselves. Your comment mean a lot to us. We hope to see you again soon.

I don't understand how this hotel is rated second best in Winnipeg. Overall the experience is very sleazy. To begin with there is a sandwichboard sign on the sidewalk in front of the hotel which offers rooms for daytime "getaways" of 6 hours or less. Any questions?? We were given the Roman Room which is very small and dark. The owners tried to cram a lot into the small space. The whirlpool tub is surrounded by plastic vines with overhanging vines and plastic grapes. Squeezed between the tub and the bed is a steel cafe table and chairs. I suppose that this is to make you feel like you are in a cafe in the piazza?? The very small bed is pushed up against the wall is old and sags toward the middle. Single pane windows let in a lot of street noise. We didn't meet anyone else in the hotel and there was no noise from other rooms.

I am sorry to hear that Rome did not meet your expectations. Guests usually really like the large 4'x6' hot tub and the steam room with waterproof speakers inside is pretty luxurious. I do not know of another hotel in Winnipeg that has both these features in a hotel suite. The grape vine canopy hanging over the hot tub area is artificial. However, there are also authentic figurines, art and statutes that represent the country of the theme. These special touches add a three dimensional feel to the suite and is a step above a picture of Rome on the wall and a statue in the corner. The oversized Queen bed in Rome is actually 5-6 inches longer than the standard queen and wider too. Many guests have commented on the comfortable mattress and after inspection I honestly can not see any sagging in the middle. I agree street noise can be a problem for some couples. The suites on the Albert Street side and Arthur Street side are quieter. However, I am happy to hear our soundproofing has been successful between the suites. We actually put two separate walls between rooms and it is nice that you do not have kids and other noise within the hotel disturbing you.

There are two ways guests enjoy a great escape at Mariaggi's. We are know for our romantic overnight escape from the kids, work and regular everyday stress. However, younger couples (myself included) find it difficult to find babysitting overnight and will often come for a day getaway - your choice of 4-6 hours from 10AM-10PM. Day getaways are a fun alternative to staying overnight. A little less costly and couples can still be home in the evening to tuck the kids into bed. I find nothing wrong with promoting this and will continue to do so.

Perhaps the Italian theme of Rome is just not your cup of tea. We do have a variety of other themes - some of which are much larger with oversized King beds and a variety of other amenities. My concern is you just did not find value in your stay. Please call me to discuss further. We would love to see you come back and make an imaginative getaway without having to go away.

My husband put together a wonderful evening for our first wedding anniversary at the Mariaggi's These Suites Hotel. I was very leery as the internet pics made the rooms look a bit cheesy. He chose the Hawaiian room and it really was fun. We started off with a couples massage that was fabulous. Off to the jacuzzi for 45 minutes; oh so relaxing. Our dinner arrived with a bottle of champagne he special ordered, which the plain back label was decorated with gold print with our name and Happy 1st Anniversary in Hawaii written on it. It really was cute. I must say the dinner was out of this world wonderful. We've eaten at some very fine restaurants, and this surpassed many of them. The rest of night was wonderfully romantic. It really was a fun night.

Room Tip: I'd stay in a room on the next floor up because with the Legion Club right under us, the poundin...

Everyone needs to spoil themselves from time to time. We are so glad you decided to do so in our Hawaiian Themed Suite. Our current website is dated but we should have our new one on line in a couple of weeks. Even so the rooms are always better in real life than pictures shown on the net.
Having a couples massage is so relaxing. It really puts the icing on the cake. Many guests love to dine in the atmosphere of the suite and we are really happy that you loved the Italian tastes we presented.
I am sorry to hear the music in the Legion below was disturbing you. Had we known we could have asked them to tone it down or even moved you to a different suite. Although that is tough sometime when you are cocooned in Hawaii.
I am glad you found good value in your stay and will recommend to friends and family. Our small boutique property really relies on positive reviews. We hope you come back to the new Cuba Havana suite scheduled to open in the late fall (waterfall hot tub, pool table, private 300 sq.ft. deck etc..). Fun, fun, fun!!!

Thank you for your review. It is so nice to have guests return for another great escape. China really is a great design. Not only does it have the infra red sauna but the new tornado steam and shower unit is really fun. Guests always comment that they need to get one of these in their homes!! China's multi-jet hot tub is very luxurious yet the waterfall hot tubs in India, Caribbean, Jakarta and Morocco offer a really unique experience too. We are pleased that you found our hotel experience excellent in all categories including value, cleanliness, location and service. We hope to see you again soon.

My wife and I decided to take advantage of a deal offered through a Doors Open Winnipeg tour in celebration of a birthday and anniversary 3 years ago. We do not expend much time on entertainment and I was somewhat sceptical. It was fun and at the same time romantic. It has certanly ranked as a special memory for the two of us and we would highly recommend it.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you had a chance to stay with us in Rome. The grape vine canopy hanging over the hot tub allows guests to make believe they are in a Roman Garden. I find the cloth canopy hanging over the bed area is very romantic. We are glad that you ranked the rooms 5 stars. As well, it is good to know that our cleanliness, and the sleep quality was a top ranking too. We are happy to hear that we exceeded your expectations and that you will highly recommend us to friends and family.
