"Great place to enjoy time away from home"
"Almost everything in the Hotel is perfect except for the pillows, we found them too hard and could not sleep with them. I have found that most hotels we stay at have a variety of soft, medium and hard to choose from where here we had lots of pillows but all were the same."

"Computers were available for use by guests, but you had to stand in a public space to use them. There did not seem to be a separate business suite you could go to to work."

"The Sunday Brunch at Fort Garry was incredible. It was the best buffet that I had ever sampled. Absolutely beautiful and delicious! The Ten Spa, the new Spa that just opened up and is located on the entire 10th floor is a world class facility. If you want to be pampered, this is where you want to stay. I will be back!"

"The Fort Gary Hotel is ideal for a romantic, yet relaxing get away. Luxurious is the most appropriate term for the interior design along with a deliciously splendid breakfast. I would more than recommend this hotel to friends and family. Sincerely, David Ounchith"
