Some hotels take the art of hospitality so seriously that magic happens and you want to live in them forever, like Eloize on the “tippy top floor” of the Plaza. The places on this list of the Best Hotels in Canada are like that, but with Canadian scenery and friendly Canadians en plus! Why not dig in and find your dream getaway?

Methodology: This is a list of the top hotel in each province and territory in Canada, followed by the 50 hotels in Canada according to Yelp. All the businesses on this list are in the Hotels category on Yelp. “Best” is measured using an algorithm that looks at the number of reviews and star rating for a business, among other things.

#2 BC Victoria Abigail’s Hotel, honeymooners favourite: “We arrived to beautifully laid out extras– a bottle of champagne and roses and chocolate strawberries. The bed was so comfortable, pillows were fantastic, and the room, cozy. The bathroom on its own was incredible, with a tub the both my husband and I could comfortably sit in.” Maya B.

#5 QC Québec Auberge Saint-Antoine, next level service: “Best hotel we’ve stayed at and there is not a close second. My wife and I are big Atlanta United supporters and we asked the staff about a bar we could possibly find the match at, but they said they would be happy to allow us to watch it in their movie theatre. They definitely went above and beyond for us and seemed happy to do so.” Jason R.

#16 The Fairmont Banff Springs, a heritage site midst the mountains: “Early on you’ll get a sense of history and luxury associated with this majestic building (it’s actually a UNESCO world heritage site). The views in and around the property are breathtaking. Banff is so beautiful to begin with and this property overlooks it all.” Kevin L.

#37 AB Lake Louise Post Hotel & Spa, deep, deep relaxation: “The staff was friendly; the complimentary afternoon tea was wonderful. The room with a fireplace and king-sized bed was comfortable and romantic, and the spa treatments were heavenly! We got the 90 min couples massage and it was probably the best massage I’ve ever received.” Clara W.
