Get Out There and Explore Winnipeg

There’s a thrill – and a comfort – in being right there. Ideally situated within Winnipeg’s top tourist destination, nowhere else will you find such reassuring proximity to our must-see spots.

Walk the cobblestone streets to the hubbub of the bustling market for local ethnic delights. Stroll the Esplanade Riel and practice your Français. Meander down the river walk in the heart of downtown or catch a live concert from your guestroom window.

Sure, summer at The Forks brings a continuous parade of festivals, outdoor activities and events. But don’t think for a minute that between the bursts of fireworks, live concerts, courtyard parties and riverside tours that winter doesn’t give the warmer months a run for the money. From pop-up river restaurants to warming hut installations, miles of skating trails on site to Western Canada’s largest winter festival nearby, staying with us in winter couldn’t be cooler.
