We stayed here for another medical appointment, and while it was not convenient to the Hospital, it was for all the other plans we had in the city. The cab ride was pre-negotiated at $22 with a receipt from the hotel to Health Science Centre Winnipeg.
Check in was swift and staff was courteous. The price we had booked during our reservation was what we signed for at check in. Our room was clean with everything we expected. I have allergies to cleaning and scented products. Our room wasn't overly 'smelly' and I didn't have any reactions for the duration of our stay. We opted to not have our room cleaned while we were visiting to minimize chemical exposure. There is a fridge in the room, but no microwave. I used the microwave in the kitchen when I needed to.
We were please to find soup and snacks upon our arrival Thursday night. Our kids were hungry. While we have encountered this perk in the past, we were not expecting it. It was much appreciated.
The breakfast offers hot and cold options. I have severe food allergies, and while I brought my own food, I was pleased to see I could have had breakfast at the hotel safely. The first day, the dairy free milk was the same brand I use, which was nice to see. It was used up and a different option was available the second day. It had soy, however, and I couldn't use it because of my allergy. The breakfast hostess noticed I had my own Almond Milk and offered the one she stocks. When I explained my allergy, she was very kind and understanding that I can't take a chance.
While we were staying at the hotel, there were two visiting University Basketball teams. They were all very cordial and represented their schools with good manners. :)
We used the pool in the afternoon and evening, usually enjoying it by ourselves or with one or two other people. Again, having an allergy to chemicals, the salt water option was welcome, as I have previously reacted to the sulfited 'shock' as well as the chlorine at different hotel pools. I could enjoy the pool and watch my kids safely.
We walked to some shops while our vehicle was being serviced. It was nice to have the option to shop and visit restaurants as needed. We took a short drive across the river and visited St. Vital park. What a beautiful retreat in the city!
Overall, we were pleased with our stay and would stay again, should we need to. less
