The Marlborough Hotel popular for business travellers as well as those who are looking for the perfect venue for a wedding reception. The hotel also offers an interesting history for those who want to know more about it.
The hotel has been as this site since 1914, although the name wasn’t always the Marlborough Hotel. When it opened that November, the original name was The Olympia. The original construction of the hotel, which you will still be able to see today, has a Gothic look and feel to it. The original structure was 4-stories high but by 1924, they’d added the remaining 5 floors. After the construction, the hotel received its new name, The Marlborough. The name stems from John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough. Today, the property is an important historic building.
While the historic aspect of the hotel is extremely important, not to mention interesting, history alone isn’t what makes it one of the best Winnipeg downtown hotels.
