Holiday Inn & Suites Winnipeg - Downtown, Winnipeg, MB

I have been in Winnipeg since Monday and stayed at the Holiday Inn & Suites downtown ... it's on the corner of Colony and Portage.  I'd stayed here in August.  When I booked my room a couple weeks ago, there were only two hotels downtown that had space from Monday to Friday (there was a hockey game on Tuesday night and Fleetwood Mac were in town last night) and the Holiday Inn was one of them.

Here was my suite ...

The bed was comfy!

The room had WIFI, which was speedy.. There was a mini fridge, microwave oven and Keurig in-room brewer with coffee and tea.  The heaters are old-school ... under the windows with a dial rather than having controls on the wall.

When I checked in, I asked if I could have a room with a tub and was told that none of the rooms had tubs ... you can imagine my surprise when I saw a tub in my bathroom!  The tub, though, looked a bit raggedy so I didn't use it (too bad because I love baths).

There is a restaurant in the lobby (I ate there on Monday night) and restaurants and things to do within walking distance.

Parking is available in a parkade (a five minute walk) and is $15 a night.

Two things bothered me.  When I checked in on Monday, there was only a third of a roll of toilet paper and no spare.  Tuesday morning I asked Housekeeping for some and she gave me two rolls.  Thanks!  When I took a shower on Wednesday morning, I discovered there was no hot water ... not an enjoyable shower at all.
