Accommodation in Canada ranges from sprawling resorts to cosy bed and breakfasts. Major cities like Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal are home to a variety of luxury hotels that offer world-class amenities and exceptional service. At the other end of the spectrum, Canada’s vast natural landscapes make it an ideal destination for glamping. Whether you’re looking for a slick city stay or a wilderness adventure, Canada offers some incredible options.

Luxury Hotels

Canada is loaded with high-end hotels that offer stunning interiors, top-notch amenities and five-star service. Travellers looking for luxury accommodation will be spoilt for choice, whether the priority is daily dining in Michelin-starred restaurants or blissful spa treatments that have the power to reinvigorate mind, body and spirit. In Toronto, the flagship property of the Four Seasons brand is pure five-star heaven. It maintains a glowing reputation for service and opulence, and is a tip-top urban retreat for luxury travellers, honeymooners and incognito celebrities. Beyond the big cities, Canada’s vast open landscapes are also home to luxury hotels. A wonderful example is the Fairmont Banff Springs, a stunning castle-like hotel that offers breath-taking views of the Rocky Mountains as well as a world-class spa, several restaurants and a championship golf course.

Boutique Hotels

Canada boasts plenty of boutique hotels that offer a more intimate and personalised experience. Small hotels deliver distinctive design, attentive service and charm by the bucket load, and they often feature individually designed rooms, curated artwork and quirky details. The Drake Hotel in Toronto is a trendy property boasting 19 unique rooms, art installations, live music and a rooftop bar. Montreal has boutiques like The William Gray and Hotel Le Germain, known for its sleek design, cosy atmosphere and character. Outside the cities, boutique stays can be found in scenic locations across the country. Nita Lake Lodge is a homely boutique hotel in the Creekside Village at the base of Whistler Mountain and is a perfect getaway for a summer adventure or an adrenalin-filled ski holiday. The compact but chic rooms feature lovely views of the lake, forest or mountains.

Bed and Breakfasts

For a cosy and intimate stay, Canada is awash with bed and breakfasts that offer a home away from home. Many B&Bs in Canada are family-run, allowing travellers to connect with locals, enjoy homemade breakfasts and receive personalised recommendations for exploring the area. In British Columbia, A Snug Harbour Inn is a welcoming bed and breakfast offering stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, featuring five guest rooms, each with a fireplace and a private balcony. Aurora seekers will love the Tuktawayin bed and breakfast in Whitehorse, Yukon - a cosy log cabin that’s designed to showcase stunning views of the elusive Northern Lights.


Canada is an excellent destination for eco-conscious travellers. The country is known for its commitment to sustainability and environmental conservation, and this is reflected in the numerous eco-friendly accommodation options available. One popular type of green accommodation in Canada is eco-lodges as they are designed to have minimal impact on the environment and often incorporate sustainable practices into their operations. They may use renewable energy sources, implement water conservation measures and utilise eco-friendly building materials. Many eco-lodges are found in pristine natural settings along Canada’s coastlines, lakesides, in the forests or somewhere in between. On the edge of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest, Nimmo Bay Resort is accessible only by seaplane or helicopter; guests fly over vast expanses of misty conifers, emerald ocean and glacial lakes to reach the eco-friendly wooden cabins for an off-grid stay amid epic scenery. In addition to eco-lodges, Canada also offers eco-friendly hotels and resorts, while a growing number of glamping sites are focusing on sustainable stays.


Canada's star attraction is its sheer vastness - the world's second largest country truly puts the 'great' in the 'great outdoors'. More luxe than traditional camping, Canada’s glamping sites offer upscale experiences, no pitching or pegs required. Glamping is all about facilities (hello bathrooms), and daily activities such as cycling, riding and kayaking. From camper vans and cabins to safari tents and yurts, there are plenty of cross-Canada options to whet your camping appetite and get you feeling connected with nature. One of our favourites is Clayoquot Wilderness Resort in British Columbia. Set along the Bedwell River, the upscale, tented resort is open seasonally, and reached only by seaplane or a 30-minute boat ride from Tofino. It’s the epitome of luxury, with 25 guest tents, two dining tents, a waterfront spa, games and activities tent, and a glass-front waterside lodge. The guest tents boast outdoor showers, antique furnishings, private decks and ambient lighting from vintage oil lamps and candles.

Original Stays

Accommodation in Canada also extends to independent stays and one-of-a-kind experiences. Unconventional accommodations range from treehouses and boats to ice hotels (in winter). Cabins and cottages are popular options for those seeking a rustic and secluded getaway. They can be found in various settings, including lakeside, mountainous or forested areas. For a memorable experience, the Hotel de Glace in Quebec City is a stunning hotel made entirely of ice. Each room features its own unique ice sculpture and the hotel also has a bar, a chapel, and a spa.
