Hotels in Canada

Canada hotels offer comfort, high-tech amenities and fine dining, as well as relaxing settings to unwind after a long day of exploring. City hotels range from classically elegant settings to modern and chic, showcasing Canada’s mix of old-world charm and contemporary cool. Located at Lake Okanagan between Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies, Vancouver’s Sparkling Hill Resort is a relaxation haven, featuring saunas, steam rooms, several swimming pools and a fitness studio. Swarovski crystals are embedded into ceilings, fireplaces and light fixtures, so it might just be the only one of Canada hotels that literally sparkles.

Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York is one of the best hotels in Canada, housed in a limestone building and furnished with glittering chandeliers. The Fairmont also features excellent dining options, including Benihana Japanese Steakhouse, Piper’s Gastropub and York’s Deli & Bakery. In Montréal, Le Place D’Armes boasts a modern yet cozy setting, where the exposed brick walls, wooden furniture and walk-in showers give it a welcoming feel. During the warm months, dine at Terrasse Place D’Armes, its lovely rooftop restaurant.

Housed in two buildings, including an old leather factory from the 19th century, the 24-room hotel appeals to young entrepreneurs with its tech-savvy touches like free Wi-Fi and plasma TV’s outfitted with Wii Fit stations.
