Mariaggi's Theme Suite Hotel in Winnipeg

Updated: Nov 16

When you’re not staying at a chain hotel you never know what to expect. It could be one of the best or worst travel experiences. My first impression as I walked up to Marriagi’s Theme Suites Hotel & Spa was that it felt like New Orleans. The signage is subtle and the building appears tiny and indescript. In New Orleans you never really know what to expect from many of the hotels. Marriagi’s definitely provides some mystery from the outside. No beads were thrown at me though … bummer.

Once in the lobby I was greeted by the manager, Lowell. He’s very hands on and proud of his property. I asked for a tour and a history lesson … and boy did he deliver. In the first video you’ll come along for the tour but I had to cut for length, so I’ll do my best to include the other details in this blog.

If you watched the video you’ll know that Marriagi’s is rooted in the history of Winnipeg. The hotel is 130 years old and the city is about 150 years old. This place is easily one of the most important buildings in Winnipeg. As I said, the tour ran long and I had to cut the above video for length so here’s some other key points that Lowell mentioned to me:

  • The bathrooms have perfume and cologne in them. You can’t take them home but you can smell delicious while you’re there.

  • Speaking of delicious there is a 4 course Italian meal offered; start with a salad, enjoy pasta, chow on a main like chicken or beef, and then for dessert you will have a mouthgasm biting into the homemade cheesecake.

  • Marriagi’s is the perfect place for couples and anyone looking to get away from the daily grind of Winnipeg for a few days. These are their target customers.

  • Don’t get too confused when people direct you to Mariaggi’s. The hotel is located in an area with 3 names; Downtown, The Exchange, and Old Market Square. In this area you will find a lot of old and unique architecturally stunning buildings. If you’re into that sorta thing, you’ll love walking around.

With 15 rooms themed around different countries, you could probably stay here 15 times and never have the same experience. How rare is that these days?

To top this all off, Marriagi’s has won many prestigious awards that you won’t expect from a one-off hotel in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. TripAdvisor has awarded the hotel with the Travellers Choice Award and given Marriagi’s a remarkable award; Top 10 in 2012 as one of the most romantic hotels in the world. In 2013, they won best spa and relaxation hotel and Rand McNally named Marriagi’s “Best of the Road”.

It’s rather important to note that the artifacts in the rooms are either from the country they represent or they are damn good replicas. This gives a genuine feeling to the themes.

Some other quick last thoughts. Enjoy the balconies! They’re rather large by comparison. Also, for those of you with a significant other, Marriagi’s offers couple massages.

I hope you enjoyed my breakdown of Marriagi’s Theme Suites Hotel & Spa. This place was exactly what the doctor ordered if he were to ever order relaxation. I am a huge fan and I will be back!
