Fairmont Winnipeg

In the city that follows its white winters with bursts of colour, the Fairmont lies in the heart of Winnipeg’s vibrant downtown, offering a warm prairies’ welcome with luxury style and service. Surrounded by historic sites and ensconced amongst Winnipeg’s cultural hot spots, the Fairmont is the place to hole up in, but with Fairmont’s multi-award winning restaurant, The Velvet Glove, make sure you remember to make it outside.


Manitoba’s capital, Winnipeg is a city bustling with class and culture, and no more so than its downtown district. Just moments from the hotel, you’ll find the high-society treats of world-class ballet at the Royal Ballet and music by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. There’s also baseball at the Winnipeg Goldeyes Baseball Club where you can wile away an afternoon with nine innings of bat on ball action. Like your sport with a bit of bone-crunching contact? Canada’s national sport, ice hockey, is well followed in Winnipeg, with a number of nearby arenas and stadiums hosting regular match-ups. With it so close, make sure you also delve into Manitoba’s brilliant fresh produce at the Forks Market, on the banks of the Assiniboine River. Find fresh seafood, produce and artisan bakeries alongside dozens of retail outlets and speciality stores here.

Your room

The Fairmont’s classy interiors offer city skyline views and spacious comfort. Decorated with oaky brown furniture and mellow creams, the Fairmont’s rooms maintain an elegant charm that pushes our Black Tomato buttons. The suites push the dial to eleven with their enormous living space and captivating panoramic views over the Red River and the city skyline.

Why we love it

You can’t beat The Fairmont’s location and style to base your Winnipeg stay, but we love The Fairmont’s restaurant, the Velvet Glove, and as Winnipeg’s only Four Diamond awarded restaurant, we can see why it’s considered a cut above the rest. Canadian classics like Carmen Creek bison short rib and locally caught fresh fish are taste bud delights and we also love the Oak River lamb and Canadian fusion dishes like maple seared duck that will certainly have you campaigning to add another diamond to its accolades.
