NEIGHBOURHOOD

At the center of Winnipeg where the Assiniboine meets the Red River, lies the Forks - one of Canada’s top tourist destinations, surrounded by the hip and vibrant Exchange District and the historic Francophone neighborhood of St. Boniface. Located within walking distance of each other, a truly unique hotel experience awaits every lifestyle at each of our locations.

With three neighbourhoods connected by proximity and authentic local experiences, the best of Winnipeg is right here at our doorstep.
Come and explore where the rivers meet - there’s no place else you’ll want to be.

THE FORKS

The Forks, located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, has been a meeting place for over 6,000 years. Indigenous peoples traded at The Forks, followed by European fur traders, Scottish settlers, railway pioneers and tens of thousands of immigrants.  

Over the last 30 years, the abandoned rail yard has been transformed into The Forks, Winnipeg’s top tourist destination.

Come experience an exceptional array of dining options, fantastic local makers and retailers, a constantly changing slate of entertainment and events, and many unique attractions that encompass the site’s natural, historic and built features.

EXCHANGE DISTRICT

Buildings and tree-lined streets, which were once warehouses and “terra cotta skyscapers” that housed financial institutions, have since become blanketed with restaurants, galleries, coffee shops, hip clothing, lifestyle and design stores.

It’s also become the home to some of Winnipeg's most progressive businesses, including graphic design, photography studios, architecture firms, and start-ups via Innovation Alley, while above the streets many of these older building’s floors have been converted into stylish apartments.

SAINT BONIFACE

Home to the largest francophone communities west of the Great Lakes, Saint Boniface is known as the heart of Manitoba's French history and culture. The neighbourhood is positively brimming with culture, including Western Canada’s largest winter festival – Festival du Voyager. The 10 day festival invites everyone to experience the French heritage of the fur-trading past, fills the city with snow sculptures, and becomes a nightly party destination with live entertainment.

While here, you can stroll along le boulevard Provencher and peek in at boutiques and quaint cafés along the way. You can enjoy walking tours and view more than 35 designated historical sites in this culturally rich area, while ending the day with some scrumptious French pastries.
