The hotel has been described by Dennis Meshes, president of Tribal Councils Investment Group, as “a beautiful hotel and one of a kind in the city of Winnipeg.”
The Wyndham Garden Winnipeg will feature 132 guestrooms offering a variety of guestroom sizes and bed configurations and is aimed at both leisure and corporate guests. It will also cater to the First Nations community visiting Winnipeg.
A franchise agreement was made with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, a midscale hotel brand with 119 hotels worldwide, while the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts brand family includes over 20 brands and 800,000 hotel rooms worldwide.
Winnipeg attractions include The Forks, a historic site at the intersection of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, with warehouses converted to shops and restaurants. Nearby, the Exchange District is known for its well-preserved, early 20th-century architecture and numerous art galleries while the Journey to Churchill exhibit at the Assiniboine Park Zoo allows visitors to get close to animals like harbour seals, arctic fox, and polar bears.
The Winnipeg Art Gallery pays homage to Canada’s Arctic landscape with a façade and galleries that flow like snow drifts. It houses an internationally acclaimed collection of over 27,000 works, spanning the Renaissance to modern Canadian and Manitoba-centric pieces, with a particular emphasis on contemporary Indigenous artists.
Qaumajuq, a new $65-million Inuit art centre, presents the world’s largest collection of contemporary Inuit art; an all-Inuit curatorial team curated its first exhibition, INUA. The WAG itself.
But perhaps Canada’s most eye-catching attraction is The Canadian Museum of Human Rights. An immersive experience features 11 interactive exhibits that lead to the CMHR’s pinnacle, the Tower of Hope (which provides a stunning view of the city). The museum charts the human experience, fosters dialogue and promotes change for a better world.
