Some of the swankiest five-star hotels in Canada are located in the major cities, often owned by some of the world’s most famous name-brand chains – Mandarin Oriental, Fairmont, Omni and Hyatt Regency are just a few of the upmarket hotel brands that you can expect to find occupying sleek city-centre properties.
Of course, not all of Canada’s five-star hotels are located in urban areas. Head out to certain resorts in British Columbia during the snowy winter and you can treat yourself to a luxurious resort experience in a log cabin, complete with a picture-postcard open fire, hot tub and an entrance you can ski back to at the end of a day on the slopes.
If the purpose of your visit is a ride on the famous Rocky Mountain Railway, you’ll find a wealth of cheap hotels in Canada’s picturesque resort town of Banff, which is set against a backdrop of mountain peaks. Lodges, resorts and chalets here offer great value for money, and are also the perfect base from which to start or end your train journey through Canada.
It’s not only Banff that features a competitive hotel scene and fabulous views, however. Over near Niagara Falls are some of the best cheap hotels in Canada, where the standard is exceptionally high and prices exceptionally low. Several hotels here also boast magnificent views of the falls, for which you can expect to pay a premium.
Romance might not be the first thing to spring to mind when planning a holiday here, but many hotels in Canada are perfect for couples and honeymooners. From resorts on private remote inlets to stately harbour houses that appear to be straight from the pages of a classic novel, the accommodation options on offer in Canada are truly boundless.
With a landscape as diverse as this, it’s not at all surprising that the country has produced some interesting hotel architecture and design.
In Newfoundland and Labrador, the rugged terrain has inspired the design of eclectic modern hotels, some of which come with floor-to-ceiling views of the North Atlantic – if you’re lucky, you might even get to see the odd iceberg float by.
In Ontario, don’t be surprised if you find yourself staying in something like a luxurious renovated iron foundry, complete with farm-to-table restaurant and views over the lake.
Choose a hotel in a vibrant city such as Toronto or Vancouver, and you won’t go begging for entertainment. Most downtown hotels are located just steps from shops, restaurants and bars.
In Vancouver, you can also combine city life with the great outdoors with a stay on neighbouring Vancouver Island, just a ferry ride from the mainland. The island is known for its snow-capped mountains and forests, where black bears can sometimes be spotted.
