We have to come into Winnipeg on a fairly regular basis because of medical issues, We arrive in the city about 7:30 am, dog tired, because we have no choice but to take the night bus a 11-12 hour ride from flin Flon, thanks to the government cutting subsidies and taking off the day bus. If it is possible the receptionist will find us a room and give it to us early at the medical rate.
The same when we check out the bus doesn't leave till 8 pm and rather than drag our suitcases around after check-out, the staff will store them for us and book the shuttle to get us back out to the bus station.
They don't have to accommodate us in that way; so for that reason we have stayed at the "Gort" since 1985.
