Those looking for a little bit of elegance and history with their meal should consider dinning at the Marlborough Hotel’s café or bar. The hotel was built back in 1914 in the very heart of Winnipeg and it still manages to capture all the charm and grace of that time period.

The restaurant, known as Joanna’s Café, serves up delicious meals in a beautiful setting. Delight at the Gothic architecture that features stained glass windows and ornate designs. The high rib vaulted ceilings, arches and decorated buttresses really add to the ambiance, as do the hanging Tiffany lamps. The atmosphere is simply charming and perfect for ladies’ brunch or a romantic couple’s dinner.

Those staying as overnight guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast from the café, but the café is also open to all diners who want to come in for a fine breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  For breakfast, you can order stacks of hot cakes, eggs benedict, or their whipped cream crowned golden waffles.  The dinner menu includes items such as herb crusted salmon, lasagna alforno, and rib eye steaks cooked just the way you like them.

The bar known as the Regal Beagle also exudes that air of high class.  Dark wood paneling help give the place its feel of sophistication, as does the wood bar where one can pull up a seat and enjoy a cold drink. There are several pool tables and flat screens for game watching which help keep it trendy.  If you want to dine on a little something with your brew they offer a full menu that includes the Regal burger, the Steak sandwich, or the steak and mushroom pie.

No matter if you love classic buildings, are a fan of Gothic architecture, or are just in need of a fine meal, dining at the Heritage building is sure to satisfy.

The Marlborough Hotel in downtown Winnipeg is known for its top-notch service, plush rooms, and fine dining. Those who enjoy architecture, or just admire beauty, also love it for its gorgeous Gothic Revival design. The hotel was built in 1914 by architects inspired by the Gothic and renaissance influences and had visions of a grand hotel in these styles.

Gothic Architecture Marlborough HotelFamous buildings with a similar Gothic inspiration include the Palace of Westminster in London England, the Cathedral of Learning in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. All have the distinct ornate qualities that make up Gothic architecture such as long rooms and hallways with breathtakingly tall ceilings. The ceilings are also often vaulted with decorated arches and carved buttresses. Stained glass, hanging lamps, and plenty of arches also define the look.

Hotels in that time period also took on this grand, detailed style of design as it made guests feel regal and pampered to be in such elegant surroundings. Many people today long for this style of building to return, and it may again in some era. For now, however, lovers of the style can enjoy the look in vintage hotels that have kept all of their charm through the years such as The Marlborough.

The Marlborough Hotel’s late Gothic Revival style is seen on the inside and outside of the hotel. The facade of the hotel, front desk, the rooms, and even the café show touches of this influence. The Marlborough Hotel is really a building you must see to believe, as it is a piece of Gothic Revival construction, and pays homage not only to Gothic Revival era, but also to Medieval England construction style, and Renaissance-style elegance.

The ambiance, one with rich polished granite and ornate cast iron, is strong and completes a tour of Winnipeg, and well represents the mood and texture of Canadian life.

Christmas is a magical time for many and one event that is always anticipated is theWinnipeg Santa Claus Parade Winnipeg Santa Claus Parade. This parade has been held in Winnipeg since 1909 and has become a family tradition for many people. If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in the area, then consider the charming Marlborough Hotel, which is only 1 block away from the parade route.

The hotel is just past the corner of Smith and Portage Avenue, meaning it will be near all of the activities and fun. The parade starts at 5pm on November 17th, 2012. At seven o’clock, there is entertainment under the canopy followed by fireworks at 7:30. There will also be block parties and all sorts of fun along the parade route to enjoy. This really is a wonderful event for people of all ages.

If you stay at the Marlborough, or live in the area, you can enjoy a warm hearty meal at The Marlborough’s café before venturing out to the parade. Joanna’s Café offers all sorts of delicious meals including the Hunter’s Steak, which is cooked with tomatoes and mushrooms and served with warm French bread. Meatball fettuccine or the steak sandwiches are also hearty offerings. After the parade, you can also stop by for a big mug of hot chocolate that is sure to warm you back up.

You can also enjoy some adult libations at the Regal Beagle, the hotel’s bar, after the parade. A mug of cider or two can certainly be a great way to end the fun festive evening. Not yet ready to call it a night? Stay for some lively karaoke that will be hosted at the bar the same evening.

Don’t miss out on this once a year event! The Santa Claus Parade is fun for everyone. Be sure to stop by the hotel afterwards for food, drinks, or even a warm, cozy bed.
