I stayed three nights in October, 2013 on the way to and from Churchill to see the polar bears. It is one of the many hotels built in the early days of the Canadian railway so it is a beautiful building with high ceilings, gracious public spaces and nicely updated rooms. The bath was very spacious with wonderful toiletries and a great shower. The bed was comfortable, albeit difficult to get into if one is short. Too many hotels these days have put comfy toppers on the beds which makes it high enough that it can be a trick to get into it. My room was very quiet and I slept extremely well.
The included breakfast was outstanding with many, many choices. I don't think I have had a better hotel breakfast anywhere. And one can order from room service free coffee or tea, which comes with a wonderful home made cookie!
I recommend this hotel to everyone coming to Winnipeg.
