    Fort Garry Hotel is a glorified, aging hotel in need of restoration and cleanliness. Despite its old charm, the negative reviews written on TripAdvisor are honest descriptions of what this historical hotel fails to provide and should very much improve.

    During our stay, we discovered bugs on our bed. We captured one in a glass and informed the front desk. Upon arrival of housekeeping (sent by the front desk), the insect was confiscated and a mattress inspection was not performed. The front desk suggested changing our room and reassured us that the insect was not a bed bug because it had wings. We however did not see wings. We requested that a specialist be contacted to examine the insect. A couple days later, the report findings confirmed it was a tick. Ticks do not have wings as well, so the inconsistency in what we were told at the start is unsettling.

    No guest should encounter or tolerate this. It is evident that Fort Garry Hotel is overpriced and does not maintain basic standards expected for its reputation and star class. Will never return or recommend.

    An Old Railway Hotel

    For me, this is the class place to stay in town. It can be pricier than some places but its charm makes it worthwhile. Sunday morning brunch is legendary, the molded ceilings make you feel like you are in a class joint, and the rooms are pretty good though dated.

    Unique Quality: If you are so inclined, there is a casino in the penthouse.

    Directions: On the south side of downtown.

by rdo911 about Royal Crown Revolving Restaurant

On the 31st floor of the apartment tower located directly behind the Fort Garry Hotel, you will find the Royal Crown. The whole restaurant slowly revolves around while you enjoy your meal. The secret is to come here for lunch. All you can eat buffet where you can sample from many of our favourite local dishes. Lunch is around $10CDN.

If you prefer to wear a tuxedo when you eat, come here for dinner. Expect to pay $50-$80CDN and enjoy a night time very of the city. Okay, you don't actually have to wear a tuxedo, but if you show up wearing jeans you may feel underdressed for the occation.

Malborough Hotel

by Vilmad

Can anyone advise me whether it is safe to stay at the Malborough Hotel in downtown Winnipeg. We don't have a car as we are flying into Winnipeg. Is it a safe part of town? Most of the reviews say downtown Winnipeg is crime ridden. Which part of Winnipeg is safe? Please advise.

Man, I just read through the safety in Winnipeg VT tips and it sounds dire doesn't it? I've got to revise my safety tip as well. Winnipeg has some issues. Primarily issues with pan handlers and occasional drunks on the street.

We used to be the car stealing capital of Canada - 13 and 14 year old kids would take cars for a joy ride and abandon the car a day later when it ran out of gas. The province has made immobilizers mandatory in our vehicles, and that problem has been reduced.

You will be fine in the Marlborough. It is smack dab downtown - close to the MTS Centre (arena). For all of our supposed bad reputation, I have never in fifty years had a problem walking around downtown Winnipeg. The worst that has happened to me is being approached for a handout. When I visited San Francisco, I was approached eight times a day but for some reason that is a major crime in Winnipeg.

Have a great trip!

I always stay at the Fort Garry Hotel when in Winnepeg. Great place.

The Fort Garry and the Marlborough are five blocks from each other. Safety-wise there is no difference between the two.
