This hotel is a couple of miles from Winnipeg international airport and is easy to drive to, or the hotel shuttle bus can come and collect you within 10mins of you getting into the departures lounge.
Check-in was nice and efficient, with the room key handed over within a couple of minutes. The lobby was clean and tidy, and also housed a couple of PCs, a complimentary tea/coffee station, a small section where you could pick up some nibbles or toiletries.
The double queen room on the 4th floor, and was nice and clean, as was the bathroom. Aside from that, it was a typical hotel room – nothing special. Beds were comfortable and reception handed out a access code for the wifi, so that was complimentary as had a decent speed and stability. The worst thing about the room was the air conditioning – when it was running it was very noisy, and even when you turned it off at the wall, every 20mins or so the unit would burst into life, thrum away for a few minutes and then clunk to a stop.
Breakfast in complimentary and is held just off the back of the lobby. There is a small selection of hot food (boiled/scrambled egg and sausages) a few cereals and some muffins/breads and a machine that would dispense orange/apple juice. It’s all edible, but at the more basic end of what a hotel can offer for breakfast. The dining area is also fairly small and finding a free table can be challenging at times.
There isn’t any option for easting at the hotel other than breakfast, but within a few minutes drive there are a load of strip malls with eateries on them, so this hotel really is just an upscale B&B. The hotel minivan will drop off and pick you up within its 5km radius, and they’ll give you more than enough restaurants to choose from.
The hotel is surrounded on three sides by construction work, and about the only reason there isn’t any going any on the fourth side is that’s where the railway tracks are. This makes for a reasonable amount of noise during the day, and periodically you’ll hear the freight trains going past at night. There are a number of road/rail crossings in Winnipeg so the trains regularly sound their horns, so if you’re a light sleeper, request a room at the front of the hotel. All of the building work also means the access road to the hotel is becoming a bit of a quagmire now the snow in beginning to melt during the day, and it looks as if the construction isn’t going to end any time soon.
