“Wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed there for a wedding. We were put in the China room (tub was not working, but we were OK with that and got a discount because of it). The room was very clean, very well kept, staff (especially the owner) was very nice and helpful - you were able to call them at any time if you had any questions about how to work anything in the rooms or had any concerns. Would definitely recommend staying there, and I would stay there again.
Only big issue was parking. Lots of stores and restaurants within walking distance from the hotel.

Thank you for your kind review. China is an exceptional suite. The design and artwork in China is very well done. We took great care to create a romantic and elegant atmosphere. The tornado shower, steam room and infra red sauna allow guests to really enjoy themselves after a great evening. Next time you stay the hot tub will be in good working order and you can enjoy this too. Your family and friends were a joy to serve. We wanted everyone to feel extra special and all who I talked with had positive comments. I think the flambé prawns, the pork tenderloin with mushrooms and banana flambé were great hits. I will let housekeeping know how much you appreciated the cleanliness. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again when you need another great escape.

I stayed in the roman room and it was beautiful! Nice jacuzzi and steam shower as well as some beautiful decor which are apparently hand picked outta Rome. The room service was to die for and the cheese cake was mouth watering! We also stepped out to one of the many nearby nightclubs for some dancing the came back and enjoyed the patio for a couple hours and off to bed ;) overall it's a nice place to get away from the world and I plan on returning many times!

Rome is very romantic. The grapevine canopy that overhangs the large 4'x6' hot tub allows you to make believe you are lounging under a vineyard while soaking in the tub. Many of the figurines and artwork in the suite are from Rome. It is nice to know you appreciated the room design as well. Many of our guests feel very comfortable taking a stroll outside when the weather is nice. Our nationally recognized exchange district is one of a handful of areas in Canada that still has a variety of interesting turn of the century architecture. Guests can walk about window shopping and as you did go to a number of night clubs close by. Our deck is a convenient way to enjoy a nice summer evening. We are happy to know you are planning to return and look forward to seeing you again soon.

My wife booked the India theme room for our anniversary. We arrived early afternoon and the place was very quiet. Just a tip, you will have to climb a set of stairs to get up to the lobby. Not sure if they have any other means. Was given a brief tour of the hotel which was nice and then were shown to our room. Walking into this room is amazing. You turn the corner and see the pool table followed by the hot tub. The room also came with a steam shower which was used. Later in the evening following our couples massage, we were served supper. We ordered the Italian meal and it was very nice. Once the meal was done, we left everything in the hall way. Was a bit surprised to find that everyone had left for the evening as it was only 9:30. Back to the room. There were a lot of light switches which made it somewhat confusing to figure out. Far too many as far as I was concerned. The room has no phones which was OK. Had a great evening but as soon as 1:00am came, the nightlife really started up. This hotel is in the exchange district of Winnipeg which is downtown. With the bars closing,(we stayed on a Monday) the yelling and shouting started and continued until 3:00am. A lot of noise from the street with police and fire dept. If we thought we would get a good sleep, that was not the case. The hotel is situated in a part of the city that you are probably not going to be walking around late at night. Also, the underground parking was 1 block away which wasn't that bad. Overall, the evening was a lot of fun and I would go back.

Thank you for your review. We are happy to know you appreciated the India room design. All the art and statues are from India. The stonework took our masons a month to create. We hope guests feel like they are surrounded by the Himalayas with the slate walls and flooring resembling the mountain range. Dinner in the suite is really convenient for guests. The Italian meal has good sized portions and is very tasty. Cheesecake is homemade and delicious with no preservatives or additives. Sometimes street noise can be bothersome - especially when the bars vacate. I might recommend the new China, Morocco, Mexico or Africa suites next time as they are more interior suites and not as noisy. It is really nice to know that you would recommend our property to others and would like to return again. We hope to see you soon!

My girlfriend and I stayed in the penthouse suite after being upgraded from the china suite which we originally booked. There was an issue with the hot tub in the china suite so they upgraded us at no charge to the penthouse a few days prior to arriving. The penthouse was far too large for just 2 people but we enjoyed it all the same. The waterfall hot tub was definitely the best part of the room and the bed was very comfortable. The steam shower was OK but not what I was looking forward too when I booked the China room (I love a great shower) The meal was excellent and the staff were all super friendly and informative. I personally would definitely stay here again but not in the penthouse again due to its over all size.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask the staff if you are having any issues with the room. They are very helpf...

The Jakarta Tropical Penthouse is Canada's largest hotel suite. It is close to 3,000 sq.ft. and is meant for larger groups. However, from time to time we have just one couple enjoy it all to themselves. We have recently added a 400 sq.ft. private deck that many guests enjoy. The oversized waterfall Jacuzzi hot tub in the suite is a one of a kind hot tub. We are happy to know that you really enjoyed this feature. China does have a really great tornado shower with multiple heads that hit you from all directions. Sorry that China needed repairs and you were unable to enjoy this feature. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us just the same. Dinner is usually very well received and I will let the chef know how much you enjoyed dinning in the comfort of your suite. Hope to see you again soon.

My boyfriend and I stayed there for our second time last weekend, and both times were beyond great! The first time we went, we stayed in the Hawaii room, it was smaller than we thought it was going to be but we still had such a good time. Last weekend, we stayed in the Caribbean room and it was amazing!! We couldn't figure out the tub or how to connect our phones to the stereo system but someone came up and fixed it right away for us, any problem you have, all you have to do is go to the front desk and they help you right away :) we also had supper there this time around and it was so delicious! No complaints whatsoever! Haha we will definitely be going back!! :)

It is gratifying when we have guest return to our hotel and try a different theme suite. This usually means that we are on the right track in terms of good service and wonderful atmosphere at a fair price. All the suites are very well outfitted. Hawaii is one of the smaller suites and the Caribbean is a larger room with waterfall hot tub and pool table. They all have really interesting design and I am glad you chose to enjoy dining in the suite this time around. It is so much more comfortable dining in the theme suite than anywhere else. The food is always tasty with very good portions. Sometimes guests have problems with how to operate some of the equipment in the suite. We are always available to help answer any questions regarding room operations or anything else - anytime of the day or night. It is nice to know you called us and we helped you in a timely manner. Sometimes guests decide not to call when a problem comes up and it really does no one any good as we can not fix a problem if we do not know one exists. We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review. The African suite is being redesigned and it will have a new private deck and will be opening in a few weeks!!! Hope to see you again soon.

We heard of the hotel, but never knew exactly where it was. It looks nondescript from the outside. So when this years "Doors Open Winnipeg" came around (open house ), we decided to take this opportunity to check out all the theme suites and penthouse. It really is an amazing hotel, each rooms' decor matched its theme to a tee.For example, we were told, that the India suite was comprised mainly of pieces shipped over from a palace in India. All the suites looked spotless, relaxing and inviting, each "unique" in its own way. The Mariaggi's Hotel looks like a wonderful place to treat that special someone and forget about the hectic or mundane life beyond its walls.

Doors open Winnipeg is a wonderful way for all those who are interested in the history of Winnipeg to get a birds eye view of our wonderful heritage. We are particularly fond of the history of our Mariaggi Hotel. The building was built by Sir James Tupper son of Charles Tupper who was a founding Father of Confederation and an early Canadian Prime Minister. Frank Mariaggi developed the newly constructed building in the early 1900's. He laid claim to have the Longest Bar in the West a Gentleman's Private Dining Room and dining Grotto's in the basement where there were ponds stalked with goldfish and walls resembling Italian caves. His hotel was Canada's first European Styled with each suite having wonderful furnishings, draperies, telephone, steam heat and their own bathroom with toilet, bath and sink. It was the new age of hotels and to this day his design concept of hotel is still being copied. I like to think if Mariaggi were alive today he would recreate and design theme suites as we have done. We are continually reinventing and redesigning suites that couples can enjoy. It is a great escape and a getaway without having to go away. All the artwork, furnishing and room design represent the country of the theme and we are proud to be the first theme suite hotel built in Manitoba. For the past thirty years we have been providing a mini vacation for couples to enjoy. We hope to be here for the next thirty years. Just wait till you see our new rooms scheduled to open in a couple of months.

Couples need couple time. It is so nice to know that you had a great stay at the hotel. We really work hard at developing and maintaining very high standards. We are committed to providing the best quality rooms, most personalized service and spotlessly clean rooms at a fair price for our guests. Thank you for rating us five stars in all these categories. Please tell your friends and family in Steinbach about our hotel and spa. We really do very little advertising but we get a lot of good word of mouth and it really helps.
