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.

Grand 1892 resort with one of the world's most majestic settings: a sparkling, glacial blue lake surrounded by snowcapped Rocky Mountain peaks. Swiss-inspired public spaces add to the property's alpine feel; guest rooms have less charm but are still cozy.

The stately 18th-century façade of the St.-Antoine doesn't give away what’s behind it: a modern boutique hotel, complete with sharply dressed concierges and an up-tempo lobby soundtrack. But the history of the former maritime warehouse is inscribed in its walls.

Both veteran Four Seasons fans and arty young hipsters stay at this hotel, set right next to Downtown's tony Pacific Centre Mall.

Family-friendly hotel composed of contemporary suites outfitted with working fireplaces and well-stocked kitchens-all within 100 feet of two ski gondolas.

The Setting: At Nimmo Bay Resort, two idyllic red cedar tubs, heated to 104 degrees, are secreted away in a wooded inlet, 200 miles north of Vancouver.

Perched on a rugged crag on the Avalon Peninsula, the red, Cape-style mansion has two whitewashed cottages and seven chocolate-hued suites-all with private patios that look out onto the Atlantic, where you can spot humpback and minke whales.

Deep in the Selkirk Mountains, Nelsen Lodge at Revelstoke Mountain Resort debuts with 59 rustic suites in February of 2009 (162 more are slated to open later this year) and is just 10 steps from the longest lift-serviced descent in North America, at 5,620 feet.

A formerly gritty Holiday Inn, the property fits right into rapidly gentrifying St.-Roch. Interiors are awash in charcoal grays and stark whites, with graffiti-inspired art, mod Japanese soaking tubs, and windows that look out onto surrounding steeples.
