Winnipeg, Manitoba is considered the geographical center of Canada and the gateway to Eastern and Western Canada. As the capital of Manitoba, Winnipeg is home to the famous street corner of Portage and Main, known as possibly the “windiest corner on the continent.”
You can find much to see and many things to do in Winnipeg. The city is overflowing with venues for the arts and culture, museums – such as the Human Rights Museum, theatres, festivals, music and dance, sports, and more. From The Forks National Historic Site which has its own river walk, shops and green space, to the Royal Canadian Mint and the stunning urban forest setting of the Assiniboine Park, Winnipeg is a city with so much to offer for a vacation.
Soft neutrals and classic furnishings create an oasis in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. But it’s the coffee, tea and cookies (delivered right to your room from 7am to 11am) that really gets raves.
Under the creative direction of Executive Chef Joseph Wojakowski, The Fort Garry Hotel, Spa and Conference Centre serves sophisticated American cuisine with an International twist.

“Good location downton, 5 min walk to train station. Very comfortable and quiet with polite and helpful staff. Note no coffee maker in room, but free tea or coffee can be delivered to room. Excellent value, especially the breakfast. Recommended”
“Stayed at Fort Garry Hotel coming off train from Vancouver. One of the old, elegant train hotels. Nice rooms, good food, great location, delightful place to stay. An older hotel from the days of frequent transcontinental train travel. Worth staying in just to see the great architecture but it’s also a terrific hotel with good food and very well run.”
