We enjoyed our stay at the Norwood Hotel in Winnipeg on 7/5/2010. The room was quiet, the beds were firm, but not too firm, the bath was large, clean, and had plenty of hot water. The WiFi connection was fast. We were on the fourth floor and the view was fantastic; we watched a storm as it approached from miles away and finally as it washed over us. We had all three meals in the hotel's Jolly Friar Cafe. Homemade mushroom-asparagus soup and sandwich for lunch was great. Breakfast was good. Dinner could have been better. I was disappointed with the local draft beer that I ordered, but my wife's glass of blush wine was excellent. The staff was friendly and competent, check in and check out very fast. The room rate was surprisingly low for a large hotel of this caliber, so close to downtown. Parking is free. Other hotels in downtown charge as much as $20. There is a taxi stand outside the hotel's front door. My only complaint is that a refrigerator is not included in a standard room. An upgraded room would have been about ten dollars more. I heartily recommend this hotel and will be back again when in the area.
