I am reviewing an upgraded executive suite at the Fort Garry hotel. My last stay here last year was very inadequate. This time around it is better BUT there are a few minor concerns. Of course everything about the hotel is fabulous. The drive up to the front. The exquisite exterior and regal lobby. It makes you feel special and important. I stayed in room 410. At first glance it was beautiful, spacious and luxurious but then I inspected a little closer. Issue #1 there was a pop can behind the garbage near the mini bar fridge. Not a big deal could have dropped when changing the liner. Issue #2. Our carpet in the bedroom was soaked near the window on the left side of the room. The air conditioner unit was probably leaking water and it was a freaking puddle (see picture). Issue #3. The dust... I am very allergic to dust and start getting hives, watery eyes, coughing and runny nose if i am exposed. And the blinds were covered in dust as you can see in the picture provided. Paying for internet is also very annoying since I know of other lower end properties that don't even charge for internet.
Breakfast was superb BUT not they started charging for breakfast when previously it was included in the rate Now it is $10 extra per person reasonable considering the cost is notmally $20 per person for the buffet.
Staff was amazing. Smiles everywhere, very welcoming, valet in particular, front desk and room service was a stand out Also the chef in the morning breakfast.
Other the issues stated about my room the floor plan was wonderful, the furnishings were more than adequate and the bed was one of the comfiest I have ever slept in. I really liked the room a lot besides the issues I stated.
The Ten spa in the hotel again amazing it is a ten and has always been a ten and my go to spa getaway all the time.
Little touches such as complimentary news paper Sun and Free Press, Fresh apples at the front desk and complimentary tea and coffee delivered with biscotti/cookie at anytime via room service are such an awesome perk.
All in all my stay was good. I really didn't want to complain (again) because they might think I am just out for a freebie or something when really I just want my experience to be perfect like it once was in the past.
