This hotel is very close to Winnipeg train station and to the main shopping area of central Winnipeg. I used it for my base for a polar bear trip to Churchill with Natural Habitat, who have their own facilities in the hotel, so it is very convenient.
The rooms are very large and quiet so far as street noise is concerned. But there can be lots of plumbing noise from showers in other rooms.
The restaurants are excellent, especially the breakfasts.
The staff are very helpful, but I suspect that is enhanced by the volume of business Natural Habitat brings to the hotel.
Maintenance and upkeep is quite good, but some wear and tear is becoming apparent.
The Fort Garry is quite a way from the airport, so I might not want to choose it as just a transit stopover. But it is well located for,say, trans-Canada train travellers who want a stopover in Winnipeg.
