We stayed at the Place Louis Riel In August 2015, for four nights. I was in Winnipeg for a CT guided kidney biopsy. The procedure required that I stay in the city for a couple days following, We had an excellent stay and the staff there are very accommodating and friendly.
We will definitely be making this hotel our regular accommodation when we visit Winnipeg. :-)
this hotel is as grand as when it first opened plus all the modern conveniences we all so enjoy. We had a wonderful two night stay and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was super friendly. The rooms were clean and well appointed. I was pleased to see that the room doors appeared to be original, complete with the nicks and dents one would expect from a 100+ year old building. It just added to the charm. Gone were the transom vents in favor of air conditioning, but the room still had some features from a bygone age to remind me that this facility has seen generations of service, and not converted into a glitzy version of an unremarkable Best Western.
The food was also as expected in a "premier" hotel both for the dinner and breakfast meals we enjoyed. Being partially handicapped the staff again showed their colors and treated me with respect and dignity in helping us with our luggage and finding a place for us to park that was accessible. We definitely will stay again at the Hotel Fort Garry again. Thank you all for a grand experience.

A great hotel, within walking distance (very close) of several interesting things including the new Human Rights museum, the forks, the french quarter, Osborne Village and Corydon Street. Lovely walking trails. Lots of shopping close by.
The hotel is very modern and the rooms are very clean -- I could smell the javex!

We always stay at the Humphries if needing to be downtown. Very clean, quiet and secure. Parking is outdoors but is always being watched. We have had a car stolen at another hotel downtown, but never a problem here. Main Street is not always the best area, but always feel safe at the Humphries. 1/2 a block to the walkway to the MTS Centre, City Place and Portage Place. Can walk the underground tunnels under Main Street. Close to the Ball Park and the Forks. Hotel gives you real glasses and always a very nice hot breakfast.

My sister and I took our 87 year old dad back to his birth town of Winnipeg and to visit the Canadian Museum of Human Rights. We requested adjoining rooms and that was accommodated without issue. Staff were so friendly! Everyone in the town actually was very friendly!
Although we stayed a few nights and asked for a microwave and crib for our youngest child, they were able to provide us with a crib but they were unable to provide us with a microwave (which limited what food we could buy / cook). The mini-fridge had very little storage space, which was problematic since we have two milk-guzzling children under the age of 3 with us---but there was no room for a 4 litre jug of milk, and it was even difficult to fit a 2 litre jug of milk in there. Also, the shower was fancy but not well insulated, so it leaked onto the beautifully tiled bathroom floor. The bathroom ventilation was not adequate, so a warm 15 minute shower activated the heat sensor outside the bathroom and briefly set off the alarm.
On the plus side, the beds are extremely comfortable, and the service was friendly and terrific. They offered to pick me up from the Greyhound station if I arrived before their shuttle bus service ended. The shuttle bus also drove my family and I to another hotel that we had booked closer to the VIA Rail station. The shuttle bus is definitely a major selling point for staying at this hotel, especially if you intend to visit several places around downtown, or need a ride from / to the airport or Greyhound station. They will drop you off and pick you up during the hours of operation.
They also have a 12 PM (noon) check-out time, but were gracious to extend it an hour when it took us longer to pack up our children and things.
Having two young children, they provided a free crib and also an extra blanket to keep our youngest warm. They also gave us extra time to leave when it took an hour longer than the check-out time to repack our things. Overall, we had a great experience. Free ice machine and average priced snack machine are located on separate floors.

The Forks plaza is Downtown's lively focal point, at the junction of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers.
