Fort Garry Hotel
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
The Fort Garry Hotel, one of Canada's lavish railway hotels built by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway in 1913, 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.
No accoutrement is spared to ensure that guests enjoy an exceptionally comfortable stay. Guest rooms feature 10-foot ceilings; exquisite beds with feather mattress, down duvets and pillows and fine Italian linens; beautifully appointed bathrooms with Turkish cotton towels, bathrobes and deluxe beauty products; TV with in-room movies, free local phone calls, free wireless high-speed Internet, and laptops available at the front desk for complimentary Internet access.
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. And, for a sumptuous indulgence—especially after you've returned from the frozen wilds of Churchill—visit the Ten Spa, an authentic Turkish-style bath and spa located on the top floor of the hotel.
