WINNIPEG — The 122-suite Residence Inn by Marriott in Winnipeg is scheduled to open March 1.
The all-suite Residence Inn Winnipeg will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by MLS Management, Ltd. The brand-new hotel is connected to the existing Fairfield Inn & Suites, making it the first dual-branded property in Winnipeg.
Located one kilometer from Winnipeg James Richardson International Airport and 10 minutes from downtown Winnipeg, the Residence Inn Winnipeg offers its guests convenient access to Bell MTS Place, Assiniboine Park and CF Polo Park.
“We’re pleased to introduce Residence Inn hotels in the Winnipeg area,” says Diane Mayer, vice-president and global brand manager, Residence Inn. “When on the road for an extended period, our guests need space to spread out, maintain their life’s pace and restore their energy to help them maintain a healthy balance and routine while travelling. This new hotel offers them a seamless blend of modern style and functionality that allows them to settle in and thrive.”
The Residence Inn Winnipeg offers studio and one-bedroom suites featuring well-lit work desks, ergonomic chairs and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Designed for stays of five nights or more, each suite also has a fully equipped kitchen with a coffeemaker, microwave oven and residential-sized appliances.
With the everyday traveller in mind, Residence Inn has created a warm, flexible decor with a “home-plus” feel. The new design incorporates a transitional style, crisp details and signature residential textiles. Each property will offer geographically tailored options.
The Residence Inn Winnipeg offers a rotating selection of healthy choices at its free hot breakfast, including bacon and eggs, Greek yogurt, cut fruit and waffles.
