Best Western Plus Downtown Winnipeg was a clean and comfortable stay, and a continental breakfast was included. Had it been a bit warmer, we would have walked to all of our activities, which included shopping, eating out, Ice Castles & The Canadian Museum for Human Rights at The Forks.
I felt that parking was a bit pricey ~ $25 for two nights. Because it was so cold, we ended up driving to The Forks, and paying for parking there, too.
We stayed in a room with two queen beds. It was a bit small and a bit dated, but it was clean, and included the usuals: Wi-Fi, fridge, & coffee maker. We struggled to control the room temperature and ended up running the air conditioner through both nights so that we could sleep.
At one point, I had walked to the Starbucks (1/2 block ~ Yay!) for a drink alone. When I returned, a guy in the doorway greeted me with, “Want to buy some pot, girl?” Uhmmm... no.
Overall, our stay was fine, and the price was right. Had I been traveling alone or with children, I would not have felt totally safe in this location.
Attached is a view from our room. One of two parking lots is in view. less

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review, your feedback provided is truly valued.
Although its frustrating to pay for parking we do our best to post this information on most of the websites that represent our hotel. Our management team had negotiated a price with the company that oversees the parking lots to give our guest the best possible price. In the downtown area our hotel offers the lowest rate for parking.
We're happy to see that you enjoyed our location so close to many tourist destinations and local coffee shops like you've mention, however I am disappointed to hear about your greeting upon return. I hope you had the opportunity to let our front desk know about your concern as we do have security on 24 hours a day to take care of these isolated issues.
We hope you give us a second opportunity to prove that we are the location of choice in downtown Winnipeg.
