Accommodations in Winnipeg

The Fort Garry Hotel

The Fort Garry Hotel is designated as a national historic site. Since 1913, this former Grand Trunk Pacific Railway hotel has stood as a symbol of Winnipeg's importance as a North American transportation hub and of the prairie city's affinity for old world elegance. One of Winnipeg's most prestigious landmarks, The Fort Garry is now in its 10th decade. In recent years, this grand hotel has enjoyed an unparalleled renaissance, winning new admirers and accolades from patrons and guests as the hotel approaches its 100th year on Broadway. Guestrooms are available at $139 plus tax per night for single occupancy and $149 per night for double occupancy including full hot breakfast in the Broadway Room. Please mention group code 1071C6 to reserve a room, as the conference has the last remaining rooms blocked for conference participants under this code. Conference rate in effect until 16 August, 2010.  Please note that the Fort Garry Hotel may not have rooms available for the conference dates.
