About the hotel
For over 39 years, The Fairmont Winnipeg has been Winnipeg’s premiere convention, business and leisure hotel. With superb facilities and, as many guests have commented, the best service of any hotel in the country. Every staff member is committed to making every conference and meeting a success.
Located in the heart of the entertainment district and Downtown, The Fairmont Winnipeg puts our guests in the centre of it all. Connected via skywalk and concourse to Winnipeg’s business district, shopping and theatres, guests may never have to go outside. But, if they choose to venture out, the city is at our doorstep. Within two blocks, guests will be in the centre of the Exchange District, in the midst of our year-round lively theatre district and CanWest Global’s Ballpark, home to the Winnipeg Goldeyes.
The Fairmont Winnipeg boasts the most convention space of any hotel in downtown Winnipeg. We have many clients and guests who return to our hotel every year for their annual meetings, conventions and board of directors’ meetings because the experience has lived up to and beyond their exacting expectations.
The Fairmont Winnipeg is renowned for its fresh and inventive menu selections, featuring regional Canadian cuisine.
The hotel itself is truly a city within a city, proud of its ability to fulfill the needs of all of its guests. Guest rooms are equipped with today’s necessities - including voice-mail, cordless phones, express video check-out and high speed modem hook-ups. But it’s not all work - the rooms are decorated in a residential style and equipped with bathrobes, hairdryers, coffeemakers, and irons and ironing boards, for comfort and convenience.
In their free time, guests can relax in the hotel’s pool, enjoy the view of Portage and Main from the whirlpool, take a steam or enjoy a workout. The hotel’s Velvet Glove Restaurant, the only four Diamond CAA/AAA restaurant between Toronto and Calgary, and Lounge at The Fairmont offer some of Canada’s best regional cuisine and cater to every taste and budget. For those who prefer the comfort of their room, 24-in room dining offers a great dining experience.
The Fairmont Winnipeg is proud to include Fairmont Gold in its guest room inventory. The hotel within the hotel, as it is known, offers guests a home away from home with features that include a complimentary executive boardroom access to a private lounge with honour bar and cocktail hour canapes, complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, private check in and check out and dedicated concierge service.
We invite you to experience The Fairmont Winnipeg - at the corner of Portage and Main and the place to stay to experience one of Canada’s most multicultural cities.
The Fairmont Winnipeg is committed to Going Green. In keeping with Fairmont Hotels and Resorts’ industry leading initiatives, we continually look for ways to help our guests help the environment. The list of initiatives is extensive: blue boxes in every room, recycling that includes everything from tin and paper to toner and plastic, energy efficient lighting, the use of latex instead of oil paint, environmentally friendly dishwashing practices and the donation of used amenities to local organizations.
The Fairmont Winnipeg’s internal Environmental Committee is dedicated to developing new ways of providing opportunities for our guests to participate in saving our environment. We meet monthly to develop new solutions and ideas to make Green Practices an easy and positive experience for both guests and employees. Join us in our efforts to take responsibility for the planet we inhabit: reduce, reuse and recycle.
