That’s because there are some fantastic must-stay properties right here in Canada.

Oh, and seeing as 97 per cent of travellers are budget-conscious, we’ve shortlisted four hotels nationwide perfect for those looking to cash big on experiences and save on accommodations. In fact, we love these spots so much that we want you to experience them for yourselves.
