Learn more about Fairmont Winnipeg or make a booking.
This festive season, Winnipeg’s only luxury hotel is abuzz with holiday cheer and our team is getting excited to welcome guests and locals alike. Inspired décor from Urban Jungle has transformed the hotel lobby into a twinkling setting; and special menus, visits from Santa and bespoke gifts mean there are a number of magical, stress-free ways to embrace the seasonal atmosphere:
The holidays are a time for giving, so we’ve created an opportunity for our guests to give back to the community. Help us decorate our lobby Tree of Hope by purchasing a decoration for the tree in support of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s Recreational Division Opportunity Fund and Pointe Shoe Fund. Every decoration donated will help a child to incorporate dance into their lives. Decorations can be purchased from our front desk, and everyone who donates will be entered to win a one night stay on Fairmont Gold.
See Where Santa Sleeps
This Festive season, the historic Royal Alexandra Suite, located on the 20th floor of Fairmont Winnipeg, will be home to not just its usual visiting royalty and celebrities, but also Santa Clause himself. Santa checks in on Saturday, November 19 and checks out on December 18—but while he is busy meeting toymakers or shopping in Downtown Winnipeg, guests and the public can tour his luxurious home-away-from-Pole every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Eat All the Food
Beautiful food, seasonal music, family, and friends gathered nearby; this is the stuff that memories are made of. From our traditional Christmas Eve dinner to our decadent holiday brunch, enjoy multi-course dinners prepared by Executive Chef Eraj Jayawickreme. Chef Eraj creates contemporary Manitoban fare using fresh, locally sourced produce and ingredients. There’s simply no excuse not to treat yourself.
Stay and Play
Make Fairmont Winnipeg your home-away-from-home for the holidays. Cozy up with a peppermint hot chocolate in front of the fire in the VG Restaurant or milk and cookies in the comfort of your room. Our holiday guest room packages make it easy for you to embrace the festive season in Downtown Winnipeg with fun-filled and practical inclusions like tickets to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s Nutcracker, complimentary parking, breakfast in bed, or even chocolate-covered strawberries.
Ditch the Cooking
It’s easy to pretend you’re a chef when our culinary team is handling all the details of your festive dinner in the background. There’s no need to worry about washing pots and pans or spending hours in the kitchen away from family and friends. In just one short drive to Downtown Winnipeg, you will have a complete and delicious festive meal. Our famous turkey takeout comes with all the fixings and starts at just $195.
Gather the Office Around
You most likely spend more time with them than your own family, so now is the chance to extend the warmth of the holidays and gather the team around for a hearty meal. Our 12 Days of Christmas Lunch is the perfect, family-style meal with delicious dishes to please even the pickiest diner – there’s even a sweet buffet for dessert!
Gift Giving Made Easy
Spread the joy with the perfect gift! Purchase a gift certificate for a one night stay at the hotel in either a Fairmont Room or Fairmont Gold room. Enhance your gift with dining vouchers, a bottle of bubbles, or chocolate-dipped strawberries to name just a few of the add-ons.
