Charlottetown Hotels

Dominating the small Prince Edward Island, which rests just off the coast of Canada, Charlottetown is a quaint and historical city - where friendly chatter fills the city center, and nostalgic nods to the town's Victorian heritage and influential past are everywhere. The small city is effectively several merged villages, meaning a disarmingly relaxed atmosphere - bonded by community - makes Charlottetown a refreshing and welcoming vacation destination.

Things to see

The green space of Victoria Park looks out over the waters bordering Charlottetown, welcoming visitors as they arrive by boat. The park is charming all year round, offering a cooling outdoor swimming pool in the summer months, and the chance to enjoy the leaves slowly turning deep brown and rich maroon during the fall. Stunning views of the ocean are also available from the grounds of Beaconsfield Historic House, which is a portal back into the town's era of Victorian splendor. The lovingly restored mansion, which has stood proudly since the 1870s, is full of remarkable trinkets and antiques, and enthusiastic guides are on hand to explain the significance of each object. St. Dunstan's Basilica, meanwhile, channels the spirit of countless grand European cathedrals, and its large rose window glows with flecks of bright color whenever the sun rises high. Culture vultures should prey upon the Confederation of Centre of the Arts, which - along with The Guild - provides the town's live entertainment and art. Bombastic shows, and vibrant musicals, run throughout the year, with the highlight being the summer's Charlottetown Festival - which has showcased the very best in Canadian musical theater for over 50 years.

Hotels in Charlottetown

Charlottetown is a relatively small destination, but it belies its size by offering a great accommodation selection. Modest options are available, but turning down the extra trimmings at the more expensive hotels won't be easy. Gloriously indulgent 4 post beds, and baths so deep that life jackets should be required, are waiting for those who take the luxury route. The hotels offer great access to the downtown area, with achingly beautiful waterfront views on offer from a lucky few rooms. For a gentle evening, retire to the hotel bar for a nightcap, or browse the net in bed using the free WiFi offered by the vast majority of Charlottetown hotels.

Where to stay

The complete lack of noise you'll experience from your hotel room, even in the center of Charlottetown, means you could be forgiven for forgetting you're in the heart of a city. Despite the sleep-friendly environment, the hotels couldn't be much closer to the bars, restaurants, and shops, and are near enough to the harbor to allow you to enjoy evening strolls along the marina, welcoming the small fishing boats home from a tough day at sea. The other option is to stay in West Royalty, where the smell of fresh flowers from pristine lawns will be the first thing you notice after waking on a spring morning.

How to get to Charlottetown

Charlottetown has its own small airport, meaning travelers can quickly and conveniently hop over from nearby destinations such as New York, Toronto, and Montreal. Swarms of taxis offer an easy way to get around once you arrive in the town, although practically everything can be reached on foot. Prince Edward Island is completely separate from the mainland, but road access is simple thanks to the stretching, 9 mile long, Confederation Bridge. Various small ferries also operate between Charlottetown and Caribou.
