Brimming with natural beauty, vibrant cities, and historical sights, Canada is home to some of the most splendid luxury hotels in the world. From its magnificent capital Ottawa to the secluded province of Newfoundland and Labrador, we are bringing you the crème de la crème of luxury Canadian hotels.
Ottawa’s Fairmont Chateau Laurier has been delivering world-class service to its guests for more than a century. Named after Canada’s seventh Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier, the hotel has been a host to prominent politicians and celebrities, as well as royalty throughout the years.
Fairmont Chateau Laurier is close to the main tourist attractions in Ottawa, like the Parliament Buildings and Rideau Canal. The Rideau Centre Shopping Mall, which includes luxury brands like Tiffany & Co. and Michael Kors, is just a short walk away from the hotel.
The castle-like architecture of the hotel makes it highly distinguishable. The interior is decorated in a chic, minimalistic style, using a neutral color palette. The luxury suites and rooms ooze old-school grandeur with the crystal chandeliers, ligneous furnishings, leather armchairs, large fireplaces, and marble bathrooms.
Fairmont Chateau Laurier features a sizable swimming pool, as well as a fitness center. Although there isn’t a spa on the property, you can book various kinds of massages during your stay.
Wilfrid’s Restaurant offers scrumptious breakfast options, delicious brunch, and one-of-a-kind dining experience – all in one place. Book an afternoon tea at the chic and glamorous Zoe’s, or opt for one of their signature cocktails like So British or Holly Mule.
Pricing-wise, double rooms start at $180 per night.
The ultra-modern and sophisticated Le Germain rightfully deserves a place on the top luxury hotels in Canada list. Sharing a building with Ottawa’s Art Gallery and a theatre, the hotel mimics the artistic and avant-garde vibe of the building. It’s only a short walk away from the Ottawa Convention Centre, Byward Market, and the Rideau Locks, so this lively location gives you the chance to explore much of Ottawa’s tourist sights.
Every suite at Le Germain is spacious, stylish, inviting, and filled with amenities that will make your stay super-comfortable. There is a Nespresso coffee machine in every suite, a kettle, and a flat-screen TV. Having a comfortable bed is an important factor when choosing an accommodation, and luckily Le Germain’s beds are extremely snug and covered with the softest fabrics. The bathrooms are commodious and come with complimentary Molton Brown toiletries.
The staff is friendly and ready to help you with any inquiries or problems that might arise. The sizable fitness center is there to give you an endorphin boost at any point during your stay.
Norca Restaurant and Bar, a popular spot among locals and tourists alike, uses local ingredients to bring you a delicious selection of dishes with an extensive list of French wine and appealing signature cocktails.
Hyatt’s Andaz Ottawa Byward Market opened only a few years ago, yet it has quickly become one of the most visited hotels in the capital. Located right in the Byward Market area, surrounded by Ottawa’s most renowned museums, art galleries, and restaurants, this prime location is one of the reasons why guests love to stay here.
With that said, for an unforgettable fine dining experience, leaving the hotel won’t be necessary since Feast + Revel serves authentic and flavorsome Canadian food. The Copper Spirits and Sights bar is located on the 16th floor, allowing its visitors access to the spectacular views of Ottawa’s skyline. Here you can sip on some of their signature cocktails while enjoying the scenic sunset.
The 200 rooms embody the Canadian spirit – the rooms feature wooden details, pearl-white walls graced with artwork, and sci-fi-esque carpets. Let’s not forget the floor-to-ceiling windows which will give you astounding views of the city. The en-suite bathrooms contain rainfall showers and complimentary toiletries. Andaz Ottawa Byward Market has a fitness center as well, available 24/7 to its guests.
