We often stay at Fairmont hotels and our last stay at the Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver was outstanding. The room at this Winnipeg Fairmont hotel was typical Fairmont style and very comfortable. My wife is a Presidents club member and check in was great as expected. We had dinner at the Restaurant in the hotel. The food was below average to poor and the price was well above what we have payed for an equivalent meal at the Waterfront Fairmont. The worst was though the eight dollars that was charged for bringing a glass of milk to our room. This was a wine glass three quarters full with milk. This price was reduced to four dollars after my wife questioned this on check out. Interestingly the price for a glass of milk at the Waterfront Fairmont - 0 dollars.

My husband and I came into town to see the hockey game. When we arrived at the hotel we were checked in quickly. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. We booked a corner fairmont king room ( normally would book a suite but we were in and out). The room was nice, decent size. Furniture was nice with modern art. The bathroom was very small however had a beautiful stand up tile shower that we both really enjoyed. The bed was soooo comfortable! Like unreal! The room had a nice mini bar stocked with beer, wines, pop, snacks... Which were all priced well. The valet service really did make our stay great! We were in a hurry to get to the game, the valet man quickly noticed my very expensive shoes and said we mustn't walk. He quickly warmed up the hotel BMW and whisked us off to the game in luxury and comfort. He was even waiting for us after the game, which was wonderful as we were not interested in waiting for a limo as it was like minus 80. We didn't get a chance to eat in the restaurant or lounge however did order room service for dinner and breakfast. Both meals were superb! They both arrived quickly, and were presented nicely. The room service menu has a great selection and good prices. We had a chance to use the pool and spa twice. The pool is great, salt water and very clean. The hot tub however was only working once and is very small. The steam room was kinda dirty and smelt bad so we did not use it. The pool area is a bit dated, however has modern furniture and lighting. Great towels as well! We have stayed at fairmonts all over the world and were not disappointed with this location even though it is smaller then most and doesn't offer all the amenities most do. But it is to be expected given it is in Winnipeg. Which isn't the most "luxurious" city. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The service and friendly staff members were really great! We will definitely be returning next time we are in Winnipeg!

Although the exterior is older, and the lobby is small, this hotel has the nicest rooms in Winnipeg. No other comes close in my opinion. All recently renovated, comfortable, great beds, linens, blankets. Nice furnishings, large flat screen. And at Portage and Main, so right downtown. You can't do much renovating bathrooms, but they did put in granite, with top shampoo's soaps, etc. Small bathtub with shower head. But the comfort of room and look and feel is best in the city.

Room Tip: Front side is noisy early morning, but not as bad as it once was. So, ask for back side if your a li...

Thank you for your feedback about your recent amazing stay at The Fairmont Winnipeg property. We are pleased to annouce that we have upgraded all our guestroom bathroom shower heads to the Rainfall Shower Head. These save water with the low-flow system and are a better shower experience for water pressure. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Stayed here on business and was very happy. Front desk was efficient and friendly. Had a room on the 15th floor and while the views weren't spectacular it was OK. The room was a good size and the bed and pillows very comfortable. A good work desk. Bathroom was on the small size and the shower disappointing. Had dinner at the Steakhouse next door which was very good. Would stay here again.

The staff was very friendly and got us into our room quickly after our late arrival. The room wasn't huge but was very comfortable. Recently renovated, it had everything we needed for our brief stay. The view of downtown Winnipeg out our window was neat to take in in the morning. The only part that we found confusing was that it was not clear where the women's change room for the pool is...had to ask several guest who also didn't know and finally found a staff member to ask...nothing a little sign couldn't fix. The restaurant was AMAZING!!! with the best service!!! Highly recommend the carafe of coffee ...the best way to wake up!

Stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights and was overall satisfied with the stay. Checkout staff was friendly and rooms were clean. Visited the lounge and had a great time there. A bit disappointed that courtesy cars were not vehicle, but was able to make it work without them. Location was good, and would definitely be back.
