... much time with them; a couple from Perth have pal-up with a couple from Townsville, and another couple from Cronulla - these 6 are all loud, 'look at me', and pretentious acting if they are absolutely loaded (I am sure Eric and Mav have more $) - I avoid them as much as I can. Though yesterday, when I dropped into the pub for a drink, I could hear some one calling 'Patricia, Patricia'! As I am known by Trish - I ignored it - It turns out it was ...
... spend some time with her now. She kept trying to feed me food she was going to have to bake in the oven, but it was getting too late, and I had some leftovers in the fridge that I needed to eat! So we just talked, and she loved the boomerang that I gave her, it actually matches in just fine with her new decor. Julie and Paul had recently painted and redecorated their whole condo, and it looked absolutely looked stunning. Julie had offered to take me to the airport ...
So, the last two months have just flown by once again, is it possible for time to actually speed up? Because it feels very much as if that is what has been happening! Of course it's now into December as I write this, and I'm having to think back on events that happened many weeks ago, it's hard not to let the blog go on the back burner while I scramble to juggle a social life, work and all the people I want to spend time with while I still have the chance. We've done some ...
... We also visited one part of the Manitoba Museum, the area we saw was the history of settlement in Manitoba. It was laid out like a time line maze starting from prehistoric times up to present day. Extremely interesting, but as we are getting used to we were asked to leave as the museum was closing for the day.

Staff had begun to wind things down as this was the second to last day the venue would be open for the summer. Some of them work seasonally and are university students. Others showcase specialized skills such as wool spinning and black smithing. One pair who were in charge of showing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Marlborough Hotel Winnipeg
Not so great
The staff doesn't seem to know what they are doing most of the time. I stayed only one night. After getting out of the pool myself and the people I was with wanted to wash our hair because of the chlorine and when we asked for extra shampoo it took about half an hour to get it. At about 7 we found it very cold in the room and asked for extra blankets. they came up about 45 minutes later. The hot tub in the pool area had a sign that said toxic chemicals don't go in. The next morning when checking out they wouldn't give us our full deposit back and said that they accidentally charged too little for the room, on the drive home we realized we were given the wrong receipt as well. Not a fantastic time.
This hotel is the pits of all hotels. I'm still trying to contact the management about the problems that I had there.
No frills but very handy to the MTS Centre! Excellent for concerts.
This is an old hotel. We found the room small (but clean) and there was no view but what we wanted was a hotel close to the MTS Centre and this was 1 1/2 blocks away. Perfect. Parking is across the street in a seperate parkade. Parking is included if you tell the staff and they give you a windshield placard. ( we weren't told ).
Young staff that tried to be helpful. Decent prices and the room was clean.
If you just want a room that's close to the MTS Centre - this is a no frills option.
Do Not Stay Here
This hotel is not a place where you want to sleep!!
The location of the Marlborough wasn't too bad, but the negatives far outweigh the positives. I stayed there last March and again in May. The room was very small and there was no soundproofing at all. I could hear every little noise come from the bathroom. I could hear the guy next to us talking and coughing all night long.
The dining room was elegant, the waiter was nice and friendly; using the pool, is a nightmare. The room was the smallest and noisiest from 10-midnight. We were on a special rate.
Lazy Management, staff outstanding!!!!
I arrived at the airport to have the front desk staff pick me up, then got to the hotel to have the same person check me in, this young lady was very helpful and sure made my stay quite pleasant, she knew the answer to all my questions. I'm a frequent visiter to the Marlborough, but a lot sure has changed. I ate breakfast in the lovely restaurant to see not 1 but all the managers eating at the same time, then later saw them again gathered like a pack of rats, then yet again. It seems to me the staff works the buns off while the management get all the credit.
This was disturbing to me, the staff there should be commended for what they do, WHAT DOES THE OWNER THINK ABOUT THIS???????
I work at a well known hotel chain and so I know what is acceptable customer service and what is not. We drove for eight hours to get to this hotel and so when we arrived, we were exhausted to say the least.
This hotel is a gem
I stayed at this lovely hotel in the summer 2003 when I visited Winnipeg for a conference. The Radisson was the conference hotel but making my reservation late it was full-booked. This was lucky, since I had to find another hotel. The Ramada was just around the corner and it turned out to be a beautiful building with good rooms and a charming breakfast room. The staff was helpful and I really enjoyed my stay - at a price much lower than the Radisson as well. I strongly recommend the Ramada hotel!
I had a great time when staying at the Ramada Marlborough! The staff was great and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. I especially would like to thank Eric Swanson (Manager) for his help and kindness during our stay. He really went the extra mile (or shall I say Kilometer for you Canadians)!
