Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Giroux Great place to stay in Downtown Winnipeg
This was my first time visiting Winnipeg (came on a work trip), and I stayed at the Holiday Inn & Suites downtown. It was a nice hotel with a comfy King size bed, clean and spacious room and bathroom equipped with everything I needed. It looks like they must have renovated it recently. The location was also great. It was close to a lot of good restaurants like Stella's Cafe and the Portage Place shopping centre. The Forks are only a $7 cab ride away.
The staff at the front were friendly and helpful - they directed me where to catch a cab, and brought up toothpaste right away when I called down to the front desk.
My only complaints are :
1. When I went to use the computer at the business centre to print something off, the software was really outdated. I couldn't open up a Powerpoint presentation to print off my notes because my file wasn't compatible with their Powerpoint 2003 (11 years old!). Even after converting my file to an older version, I still wasn't able to use the full capability of the program to get my notes. Their computer was also blocking any updates I tried to download. The applications and programs on the only computer in the business centre need some major updates.
2. The windows could use better insulation from the noise at the street level. Even on the 7th floor, I could still hear the traffic at all times. The ambulance sirens woke me up a few times.
Otherwise, I really enjoyed my stay here and would probably come back if I visited Winnipeg again.
