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.

1. Fairmont Winnipeg, for classic comfort

Staff at this long-established Winnipeg hotel can arrange pet-sitting, dog beds and bowls, a curated dog-friendly guide to Downtown Winnipeg, and the daily dog treats. All rooms and suites have rich red throws, plus leather and polished wood – request one with views of the Exchange District. If you don’t want to leave your pooch for too long, the Grab and Go option includes tasty any-time dishes such as caesar salad with brioche croutons, and the Fairmont signature double chocolate brownie, which you can take to the park.

2. Mere Boutique, for industrial chic

This modern hotel is close to the dog-friendly Stephen Juba Park, a waterfront park on the western bank of the Red River. In contrast with the cobblestoned neighborhood, the hotel exterior is pure industrial chic with vertical colored pipes. Inside, pet-friendly rooms are grouped on the main floor with easy access to the outdoors and feature walls, bright green accents, and city or river views. Brew up a morning coffee before you start the day along the nearby Assiniboine Riverwalk.

3. Fort Garry Hotel, for old-school elegance

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.

4. Alt Hotel Winnipeg, for urban cool

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.

5. Delta Hotels Winnipeg, for clean contemporary lines

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.

6. Homewood Suites by Hilton: Winnipeg Airport-Polo Park, for flying with furry friends

This laid-back airport hotel is super handy for those traveling with animals, as you can be in your hotel room fairly quickly after disembarking from the plane. Spacious suites are warm spaces to cozy up in with orange and brown shades, and a full kitchen for stashing your duty-free in and preparing a calming doggy dinner. De-stress at the indoor saltwater pool and hot tub. Some rooms and suites are hearing accessible, featuring visual notification features to assist the hearing impaired.

7. Sandman Hotel & Suites Winnipeg Airport, for diners and dogs

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.

8. Radisson Hotel Winnipeg Downtown, for high-rise pet heaven

Cats and dogs are allowed at this high-rise, pet-friendly hotel in the South Portage neighborhood. The dog-friendly Bonnycastle Park is a 15-minute walk away. Bathed in shades of brown, the Premium One Bedroom Suite-King Bed has space for up to five adults with a separate living room and dining area. Rest assured, a pet or two won’t make a crowd in this spacious suite. Dine all day with a great view at the 12th-floor restaurant, dishing steak, seafood and veggie options.
