Canada’s Top Five-Star Hotel ★★★★★
Rosewood Hotel Georgia (Vancouver | 9.5 tRI™)
The five stars that dazzle in Downtown Vancouver
“What does Canada’s best luxury hotel look like?”, you ask. In 2018, spin your way through the revolving doors into the world of the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. With carefully chosen furnishings and luxury amenities, it’s no wonder that past guests have given near-perfect scores to this Downtown Vancouver institution.
You may anticipate the Italian linens, deep-soaking tubs and skyline views in-room, but plunging into the hotel’s indoor saltwater lap pool under soaring ceilings is beyond imagination. A spotlight on the Rosewood Georgia also points to dining options from the Prohibition Cocktail Bar (alluding to the hotel’s Roaring Twenties past) to macarons at Bel Café, from nibbles on the Garden Terrace to award-winning haute cuisine at Hawksworth Restaurant.[button text="Book me in! »" href="https://www.trivago.ca/vancouver-53875/hotel/rosewood-hotel-georgia-1800653"]

How were the winners chosen?
Just as trivago aggregates hotel prices from across the web, we also aggregate guest reviews and ratings for a wide variety of amenities and services for all hotels that display prices on trivago. The reviews are then assigned an overall score by amenity or service category using an internally developed algorithm. The overall score is displayed on trivago, making it easy for travellers to compare amenities and services offered as they search for their ideal hotel.
For the trivago Awards 2018, the hotel with the highest score in each awarded category is deemed the category winner. To ensure accuracy, a minimum of 20 reviews were required for award eligibility.
The result: A comprehensive list of the cream of the crop in hospitality, and prestige and recognition for the hardworking hoteliers behind the winning hotels.
Canada’s Top Independent Accommodation
BranCliff Inn 1859 (Niagara-on-the-Lake | 9.5 tRI™)
The picturesque stay for an extra special time in Niagara-on-the-Lake
It’s only fitting that Canada’s favourite independent accommodation should be in Niagara-on-the-Lake, possibly the country’s cutest small town. It shouldn’t be any more surprising then to find three other winners in the Niagara region.
The BranCliff Inn leads the charge with its quaint six-suite bed & breakfast just one block over from the shops of Queen Street. A generous breakfast spread, a particularly warm welcome and the building’s inherent charm as a former schoolhouse have won the hearts of trivago users.[button text="Book me in! »" href="https://www.trivago.ca/niagara-on-the-lake-57076/hotel/brancliff-inn-1859-2733188"]
