    The Westin Harbour Castle sits in the city's Harbourfront area, nestled between Toronto's ferry stops and Queens Quay.

    Sheraton on the Falls Hotel
    Niagara Falls, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 8232 reviewsTripAdvisor (8232)
    Free WiFi

    Situated just north of the thundering waters of Niagara Falls, Sheraton on the Falls lures guests with its outstanding views and family-friendly amenities. Kids can splash around in the 3-acre Fallsview Indoor Waterpark – which is directly connected to the Sheraton – while parents soak in the 7th floor rooftop pool (open during the warmer months) or rejuvenate at Christienne Fallsview Spa. The numerous on-site and nearby dining options also cater to all members of the clan: The Rainforest Cafe Niagara Falls with its animatronic animals and 6,000-gallon shark tank will appeal to the younger set, while adults looking to savor a refined meal of fresh, local seafood and produce will enjoy the on-site Windows by Jamie Kennedy Fresh Grill & Wine Bar. When the day is done, retire to your well-appointed accommodations; each room is outfitted with a 37-inch LCD flat-screen TV, a minifridge, complimentary in-suite Starbucks coffee and Tazo tea and wireless internet access (for a fee); however, guests weren't thrilled with the extra fees (like the daily resort fee). Though some guests lament the hotel's thick crowds, especially around the holidays and when conferences are held on-site, many say the property's prime location and striking scenery are compelling reasons to plan a future stay. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Park Hyatt Toronto
    Toronto
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1852 reviewsTripAdvisor (1852)
    Free WiFi

    The Park Hyatt Toronto's illuminated awning pokes through the urban landscape alongside the high-end shops and restaurants of Toronto's Yorkville neighborhood. All accommodations offer spacious work areas, minibars and complimentary Internet access. For health nuts, fitness and pampering opportunities are easy to come by. The hotel features a bicycle valet program that includes a bike, helmet, lock, bottled water and city map. The on-site Stillwater Spa offers a Zen ambiance that guests praise, although many note the prices can be steep. Consider saving your money for dinner at Annona restaurant, where international cuisine is on the menu from award-winning executive chef Joan Monfaredi. Or grab a table at Morton's, The Steakhouse, known for its prime cuts of meat. After you're well-fed, savor a cocktail on the Roof Lounge — its sprawling cityscape views draw crowds to kick back in leather chairs and enjoy a diverse drink menu. Though many past visitors applaud this Hyatt branch for its superb location and attentive staff, some do bemoan the hotel's high price tags and describe the hallways as slightly dated. On the plus side, if you're looking to earn or use rewards points for your stay, you're in luck; the Park Hyatt Toronto participates in the Hyatt Gold Passport program.
