3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

have stayed here a few times and continue to come back. big room for good price.

The room was absolutely beautiful. Kitchenette was great to have to store left overs and warm food, you could even cook there if you want. Next time I think I will bring some groceries and save a few dollars.Oh, and I Loved the style of the room, very modern with the dark cabinets and crisp white comforter. The bathroom was very modern and everything was clean and ready.

My room, according to hotel staff is the smallest, but it is really a studio with a full bath room, and a fully equipped kitchen (full size refridgerator, stove and oven, microwave oven coffee maker, water boiler, toaster and flatware) and dining counter. It has a sofa with otterman, 32 inch TV, and a comfortable firm king-size bed. Plenty of lights, digital temperature control, lots of closet, shelves, drawers, and cabinets, and a full length mirror in the room. Free wifi. Plenty of outlets, although an extension is still useful (I brought one) for tablet or PC use. Hotel is in downtown easy walking to conference centers, library, and other places of interest. Less than 5 minutes to bus stops. About 30 minutes to airport (No. 15 bus, $2.50 each way, exact change). I did not visit its restaurant, but heard it is quite good and resonally priced. Bring your own pots and pans if you do cooking.

This hotel is a great value. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The resturant food was average and a little pricy but other options are close by. Will stay again!

Affordable. Clean. Accessible. Friendly. Large complete corner suites.

We stayed at the Place Louis Riel. The staff was exceptionally helpful, the room was comfortable, clean, and updated. I will check on the Louis on my next trip to Winnipeg.

This was a very nice, centrally located, clean hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful in all things regarding the hotel along with orientation of the local and downtown area.

It was a very nice hotel with a super nice staff and very clean comfortable rooms with a complete kitchen. Would definitely stay here again!

Some things we liked but overall we would not stay here again. We have mobility issues so I phoned the front desk and asked them specific questions and as it turned out their answers were incorrect. They were unwilling to accommodate us and I found that they are not customer focused. The place was dirty, carpets needed to be cleaned, areas in our room had stains and the windows were very dirty. There was some signs that there was renovations going on so I guess there is hope. Some items on the menu were great but that area of town is not the best for the average traveler.

I REALLY ENJOYED THE FULLY FUNCTIONING KITCHEN.... I WAS ABLE TO PICK UP GROCERIES AND COOK MY OWN MEALS.... THE KING SIZE BED WAS VERY COMFORTABLE AS WELL. GREAT COMFORT AWAY FROM HOME FOR LONGER STAYS.

Stayed here during a bitterly cold period of the Winnipeg winter and was very satisfied. Was a bit leery after reading several reviews that stated that the location is poor, but I did not come across any of the negative things that were mentioned (aggressive panhandling, vagrants, etc) but that could have been due to the extreme cold (it was minus 20F) however the area did not look like a bad area to me. In fact I walked the streets nearby after dark every night and never encountered any problem and never felt the least bit unsafe. There are entries to the Winnipeg skywalk system not too far away to get you out of the cold. Checked in in less than 5 minutes, the room was spacious and clean with separate bedroom, kitchenette, coffee, comfy couches, internet, etc. The bed was comfortable and the room heating was excellent considering how cold it was outside. There is a restaurant and a convenience store located in the lobby. One thing to take note of in regards to location: this place is not located right in the "heart" of downtown, you will need to walk to get to the main areas, but it is only a short 5-10 minute walk up Smith street up to Portage and you are there.

The hotel was very nice. It was easy to get in and out. The staff was great. The room was very comfortable. You have to pay to park but it was secure.

An outstanding hotel on the whole. Maybe the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in - firm underneath but luxurious padding on top. Spacious, well-appointed suite. Helpful staff. I had room service twice. First a good tuna salad; then a very disappointing half rack of ribs with caesar salad and baked potato. The potato was by far the best thing.

Super location downtown, although rooms facing east face a rather unseemly senior citizen/public housing high rise. Ask for the west view with a great view of the city and Legislative building. I was upgraded to a a remodeled site that was very trendy and had a Ipod player, fridge, full stove, bar and stools, BR and big living room. The king size bed was very comfortable with lots of fluffy pillows and a beautiful spread. 2 flat screen TVs with the larger in the LR. As its in central Winnipeg, it doesn't take long to get anywhere from there. PARKING IS $10 A NIGHT. eXCUISITE Aborignal art in the room and hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel, western view. There is a convenience store downstairs. Near great hopping and restaurants and Via Rail and the Forks are a short walk away.

This hotel is not new but they had a multi-million dollar facelift and accommodations are now fabulous. Contemporary decor, new leather furnishings, marble counter tops, stainless steel fridge and stove. Spacious kitchen facilities add to the package at the same price as a smaller hotel room. Free wireless, inexpensive room service. All around great place

This was a great experience! The hotel was amazing and the staff was too. Everything we possibly could have needed was within walking distance and the staff was very helpful in helping us find it all. I highly recommend this hotel if you are going to stay in Winnipeg!

I just wanted a get away and have never been out of the Country before, so I picked Canada and this hotel. I was so glad I did! From the room or I should say suite, they were beautiful, compfy, made you feel at home, and great closet space. I love the staff, they made you feel welcome from the minute I walked in the hotel until the day I left. The view from the windows is amazing! I would definitely stay here again and again. The only thing I wish there was is a pool and hot tub but lived without it! Wonderful place!
