The Victoria Inn and Conference Centre is located on the south side of Wellington Avenue and to the west of King Edward Street in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Winnipeg International Airport (YWG) is a 2-minute drive to the west of the hotel while downtown Winnipeg is about a 12-minute drive to the east of the property (driving distances - Google Maps).

The smoke-free hotel has 259 guest rooms and all rooms offer air conditioning, climate control, free local calls, coffeemakers, work desks, irons, ironing boards and hair dryers. Free Wi-Fi is available in all rooms. Pets can stay at this hotel and will cost $25 per pet, per night. Special kid-themed suites are available with bunk beds for the children in a separated bedroom, along with an Xbox gaming system, their own bathroom and TV. Xbox games can be borrowed from the front desk at no additional charge.

Facilities at the hotel include an indoor swimming pool, a kid-friendly water park with waterslides and very shallow end, a fitness centre, a gift shop and laundry service. 

Guests wishing to take advantage of the hotel's free airport shuttle can obtain a pick up from the airport by using the airport shuttle phone beside door #2 at the airport. Besides free parking for in-house guests, the hotel also offers a 10% off coupon for the airport's long term parking.

The Good
Guests that stayed at the Victoria Inn and Conference Centre were generally happy with the hotel. Guests were frequently positive about the location of the property, the hotel's pool, and the staff.

Guests that liked the hotel's location were almost entirely airport patrons. Many of these guests mentioned that the hotel had a free airport shuttle which some guests called convenient. Occasionally a guest indicated that he/she liked the location of the hotel for access to major road routes.

The pool at the hotel received a lot of praise and, according to parents, kids that were staying at the hotel really liked the waterslides. The pool area was sometimes described as more of a waterpark as opposed to a standard hotel pool. Several guests that were traveling with children seemed to appreciate having the facility and one parent/guest, for example, said that her kids had a blast.

The staff at the hotel also received frequent praise and they were commonly referred to as friendly and/or helpful.

While some guests said their rooms were quiet and no one complained about plane noise, a few guests said they could either hear guests in the hallways or in adjacent rooms.

Some guests did not like having poolside rooms due to the smell of chlorine and the noise of the children in the pool.

A few guests said they could not connect all their devices on Wi-Fi.
