The new lobby at the Holiday Inn Winnipeg South

When it comes to shopping, sports, attractions and restaurants, the south of Winnipeg continues to shine… and the best spot in the area to stay and explore this hub is the Holiday Inn South (HIWS).

We’d like to say it’s an insider’s secret, but the r ave reviews for HIWS make it clear – this is one of the best properties in the city, especially when it comes to families. And right now is the time to book to make the most of your family’s spring break in the city.

The HIWS  Spring Stay and Save special offer gets you complimentary breakfast in the EnoBAR + Kitchen, plus a $20 gift card to Outlet Collection Winnipeg (more on this and the area to come) – all starting at just $134.00 CAD for two queen beds.

Plus, children 19 and under stay for free (when roomed with an adult), while children 11 and under stay and eat for free (up to four per family) any time from the EnoBar + Kitchen. There’s also no shortage of extra amenities for kids, including free board games, Sharkey’s Palace Playroom – featuring play structures and games, and a kids pool in the pool area.  

All 170 of the hotel’s guest rooms have been renovated in the last two years, along with the lobby, restaurant, lounge and fitness centre. The beds are luxurious, while the guestrooms all come with stately, comfortable furniture, microwaves, fridges, and free high-speed WiFi for all guests.

You can even bring your family pet (there is a designated pet floor for an additional $15), while the hotel provides free shuttle service to Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.

Now, about the area:

Within a ten-minute drive west you’ll be right in the midst of Winnipeg’s newest shopping mecca. The aforementioned Outlet Collection Winnipeg is Manitoba’s only dedicated fashion outlet mall. It features over 100 brands all under one roof, and is just over a ten-minute drive away from the HIWS. Right across the street from there is IKEA, with numerous big box shopping centres, FortWhyte Alive nature reserve, and family friendly attractions like Sky Zone Trampoline Park a short drive away.

Just a few blocks down Pembina Highway from the hotel is Investors Group Field, which makes the HIWS an ideal spot for fans coming into Winnipeg this summer for CFL games. On top of that, Thermëa by Nordik Spa-Nature – one of Canada’s best outdoor spas, a place brimming with Scandinavian saunas, steam rooms and thermal pools – is just a 15 minute walk or two minute drive away. You can also book a signature Thermëa package through the HIWS that gets you a night’s stay at the hotel along with access to this wonderful Nordic experience and a four-course meal at the spa’s exceptional restaurant.

A ten minute drive north from the hotel and you’ll be right in the midst of Osborne Village – one of Canada’s coolest neighbourhoods. Five minutes past that and you’ll be in the centre of the city, which includes BellMTS Place - home to the Winnipeg Jets, Manitoba Moose and countless upcoming concerts, including Rod Stewart (April 3), The Illusionists Live (April 10) and Shania Twain (May 13).
