It has just enough charisma to satisfy any desires for creative decor, but with the comfort of a big chain hotel. An artistic social commentary painting of Her Majesty the Queen of England adorns the wall in the lobby lounge, and the place has just enough sophistication to make you feel like a Double-O agent.Read More
Sometimes the water runs freely like an amazon rain shower and other times it trickles out like the worst kind of drought. It's a small detail but one that I am mindful of.Read More
While I enjoy the bedding at the Fairmonts and the Westins of the world, sometimes I like the time-lapse effect of a good old fashioned small town motel — chalk it up to a cultural experience.Read More
This is my Chicago home away from home and my first choice of places to stay in the Windy City.Read More
Brentwood Bay is located close to the Victoria International Airport (YYJ) and near the famous Butchart Gardens — if you're into botanicals maybe that's where you'll find yourself. It's also a great spot for a getaway from, well — pretty much everything.Read More
Le Germain Hotel is modern business chic in the heart of Calgary's financial district. Well appointed rooms and a mini-bar that reminds me of the good old days of hotel rooms before those seemed to vanish. Throw in a nice comfy bed, Charcut Restaurant, and a great lobby bar and this is my choice of for a hotel in Calgary.

The rooms are comfortably modern without being austere, and most importantly — the beds are comfortable.Read More
My entire experience at Hotel Gault was exceptional. This 30 room boutique hotel in the heart of Old Montreal is close to some great dining, the Basilica Notre Dame, and a short walk/ride to the rest of Montreal. The service here is 5 star, and the rooms themselves are luxuriously inspiring from a visual standpoint.Read More
Hotel 10, formerly The Opus Montreal, is one of the few hotels in Le Plateau, and certainly one of the best (if not the best) one available in this hip part of town. Modern touches and big showers adorn the rooms, and you're a short walk from great eats and shopping, or a $15 cab from pretty much anywhere you might find your self in the main part of Montreal.
The rooms are Vegas chic and are guaranteed by us not to be too corporate and stuffy. This is a great spot to start and end your day in Montreal.Read More
