Winnipeg visitors frequently head to the Forks, the public cultural space where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet, and the site of multiple festivals. The Gateway to the Canadian West is brimming with art and culture, home to the oldest dance company in Canada, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and the internationally respected Canadian Museum for Human Rights. You and your four-legged friend can also enjoy 20 dog-friendly parks and trails. Book into these pet-friendly hotels in Winnipeg, hand-picked by Culture Trip.
This historic hotel and spa is unabashedly welcoming to tail-waggers. Pet bedding and bowls are available upon request, and don’t be surprised if you receive a Doggie or Kitty Surprise welcome bag upon arrival. The rooms and suites have classic touches, such as super high ceilings with ornate details, four-poster beds, soft neutrals and cozy throws. The chandelier-clad Oval Room Brasserie is a good-looking spot for a glass of house red while your pet sleeps upstairs.
A 13-minute walk from Winnipeg Art Gallery, contemporary urban style mixes exposed concrete and wood accents at this pet-friendly hotel. The One and Two Bedrooms, the Corner Bedroom, and the Spacious One Bedroom are naturally roomy – there are no cramped hotel digs here – and furnished in an uncluttered, minimalist mod-style. Just next door is the Merchant Kitchen, which specializes in Asian and Latin street-style food and creative cocktails.
Rooms and suites channel contemporary cool with shiny surfaces and modern murals and at this pet-friendly base, connected via a skywalk to the Winnipeg Convention Centre and the Canada Life Centre. Your dog will be more interested in the proximity to the green swathe of Memorial Provincial Park, a handful of blocks away. You’ll love the choice of an indoor and outdoor pool, the latter in season, of course. Great news for your fur kid: the Bonnycastle Dog Park is a 13-minute walk from the hotel.
After a flight, it’s such a great feeling to be out of the airport and have your dog off the leash as soon as possible. Luckily, there’s a grassy area outside the Sandman, which has select pet-friendly rooms – light-filled spaces with framed prints of classic architecture and monochrome striped throws. There’s a maximum of two pets, cats or dogs. Guests are allowed to leave their four-legged traveling companions unattended in the rooms if they’re in crates, so you can nip to the diner-style restaurant for a hand-pressed burger.
