“Fairmont Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We only stayed (1) night at the Fairmont Winnipeg. Although, we didn't utilize all there was to offer at the Fairrmont, we still really enjoyed our stay. I was impressed, of how helpful all the Staff were. We booked an Urban Package, and it really was a Great value. There's a choice of either Valet Parking, or Park Yourself. This Fairmont is currently under Renovations, but when it's completed, it'll be outstanding.

Hello Pat,
Thank you for your review. I am so pleased you were able to take advantage of our Urban Escape package. You are right, it really is fantastic value, however we always enjoy receiving feedback from our guests. Our renovations should be all wrapped up by October and I do hope you have the opportunity to return to the hotel and experience the completed product.
Thank you again for the review.
Kind regards,

The hotel staff was both friendly and helpful. The room was extremely comfortable and quiet. I attended a luncheon at the hotel that was attended by about 700 people. The food & service was exceptional for a large gathering. The hotel provided free papers each morning, one local and one national.

Don't get too excited that you are staying at a Fairmont as it does not compare to other Fairmont locations. I can only compare to the other Fairmont properties in Vancouver, Whistler and Seattle. First off the lobby is extremely underwhelming and they may want to consider replacing their worn out couches. Stayed on the 20th Floor and the room had a nice view. The room itself is also underwhelming and the fan in the room is extremely loud. The bathroom is quite nice and the shower had good water pressure. During one day, there was a strong odor coming into my room that smelled like a kitchen. There is no kitchen anywhere near the 20th floor so I am not sure where the smell was coming from but I would imagine it is fromt he ventilation. I addressed it to the dront desk and when I came back the smell was gone.

The breakfast is way overpriced and not good value for money. $30 for an omlette and orange juice is steep and it wasn't that good either. No turn down service unless requested and no complimentary water in the room like at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, rather you can pay $7 for a bottle of water.

I would not recommend staying here for the price they charge, but then again I am told this is the nicest place in Winnipeg.

Room Tip: Request a higher room as the hotel is going through some much needed renovations.

Dear Akash,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We certainly appreciate our guest’s feedback.

In regards to the food, please be assured that I have bought your comments forward to our Food and beverage management team to address accordingly. In regards to the lobby, we are currently renovating it to bring it up to the standard you have come to expect from Fairmont properties.

The Winnipeg Fairmont is very good, and could be excellent. Staff are friendly and efficient. The location is excellent. You can walk to good restaurants, the new Museum of Human Rights ,and just about anywhere central. It is a modern building which gives generous light filled rooms. The hotel suffers from the ubiquitous " hotel traditional " aesthetic and is in need of a lift . It is to be hoped that Fairmont looks to the modern original building and exciting contemporary hotels, rather than maintaining its generic traditional style .

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I can certainly appreciate your comments that there are areas of the hotel which need a “lift.” I am pleased to note that we are currently undergoing renovations to our lobby, restaurant, and Fairmont Gold floors. I have no doubt that you will be pleased with the finish product in October and find that it is more aligned with the contemporary feel you prefer. I do hope we will be able to welcome you back later this year to enjoy our enhancements.
Kind regards,

Extremely courteous and helpful staff. Make you feel at home from day one. Staff gives credence to the phrase " Friendly Manitoba". The hotel staff, food and services were first rate. I would recommend this hotel without any hesitation.

The hotel is a very nice property with some old school charm. The rooms are good sized and nicely fitted. If you have work or play in the downtown exchange area this is a great place to stay. And the ballpark is close also.

This is a very nice, is up to Fairmont standards. It is located in the heart of a large city. Parking can be valet or self park, we chose the latter in the adjacent garage as we only had carry-on luggage. The room was elegant and comfortable. We dined in the bar area, as we were travelling casual, and the restaurant looked more formal than we were dressed. From the bar menu we had two wonderful sharing dishes. The first was a plate of pierogies, as there is a strong Ukrainian and Polish influence in the city. They were wonderful, and worth a trip back. For a shared dessert we had a sticky toffee pudding, which was spectacular. Would definitely order again.
