Fort Garry Hotel
The Fort Garry Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg and is a mix of Old World elegance and modern style. One of Canada’s lavish railway hotels built by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway in 1913, the property has long been a symbol of the prairie city’s importance as a transportation and commerce hub. Located downtown one block from Union Station, this historic landmark and gracious accommodation built in French chateau style is Winnipeg’s finest hotel, exuding an atmosphere of the opulence that prevailed during the glory days of the development of the Canadian West.
The Fort Garry’s famous buffet breakfast is served in the elegant Broadway dining room, and guests can enjoy a relaxing drink in the Palm Lounge with its antique bar. The hotel also has a fully equipped fitness center with indoor pool, whirlpool, jogging track and steam room. A visit to the Ten Spa, an authentic Turkish-style bath and spa located on the top floor of the hotel, is a reward after a week in the Arctic chill.
