5 things we bet you didn’t know about Delta Hotels Winnipeg
Winnipeg is full of hidden gems, and one that seriously deserves more kudos is Delta Hotels by Marriott. Located right in the middle of downtown, this overnight destination never fails to charm its guests with its modern look, helpful staff and luxury amenities. You may wonder why you should spend your next overnight vacation at the Delta – we have five reasons why.
1. Where the action is
If you’re looking to explore Winnipeg, having a downtown home base is the best way to plan your excursion. The Delta is a 20-minute walk to both the Exchange District and The Forks, which is the perfect strolling distance. If you’re in town for an event, both the RBC Convention Centre and Bell MTS Place are only blocks away – and both are connected to the downtown skywalk system, which means you never have to step foot outside in the winter. Not having to lug your jacket around at a concert? Yes please.
2. Gourmet comfort food
There are almost too many amazing restaurants to count within just a few blocks of the Delta, but you don’t have to go any further than their own lobby. Blaze Bistro knocks it out of the park when it comes to contemporary Canadian cuisine – check out our full review here – while they consistently put out one of the best burgers in town. The burgers change up every three months, so there’s always a new offering to feast on. When the Jets are playing a home game, Blaze offers a Burger & Beer special for only $16. If you’re looking for an adult beverage, Blaze’s happy hour has some of the best-value drink lists in the city between 4-6pm on weeknights. Featured wines, local beers on tap, and half priced cocktails during this time means you’ll have no shortage of options to wet your whistle.
3. Two (!) pools
We’re not kidding, this is something that even locals in the know are still surprised by. The Delta has one of Winnipeg’s best outdoor pools, nicknamed Blu, right in the middle of the downtown action. The hotel also has an indoor pool, and a whirlpool to round out the full aquatic experience. It is absolutely essential that you pack some swimwear when you stay at the Delta – you may never want to leave the poolside area. And hot tip for the locals – you can book a private function at Blu over the summer! Call the hotel and get that reservation in before it’s all booked up.
4. Living that glam lifestyle
If you’re looking to be pampered, that comes standard at the Delta. Friendly and knowledgeable staff are always ready with suggestions and tips to help optimize your trip, while the amenities are sure to impress. Heated bathroom floors and free Wi-Fi are just the start – to really feel like royalty, you can’t do any better than a club-floor room. These exclusive suites give access to the Delta’s private lounge, where breakfast and snacks are complimentary.
5. Fresh new look
Even if you’ve stayed at the Delta before, you might be surprised to see that the entire hotel, from the lobby to the rooms, recently went through a complete renovation. With a new sleek décor that emphasizes modern comfort, visitors from all over the world have been raving about the new look.
The Delta Hotels by Marriott is ready to welcome you for your next vacation, staycation, or conference. They often have special offers available, which you can find here and are updated throughout the year (the ‘Find your Retreat’ deal is perfect for staycations). Treat yourself to a trendy and curated experience next time you’re looking for next-level overnight Winnipeg accommodations and stay at the Delta.
