Originally established in 1864, this Victorian-style hotel sits at the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, a small town located about 15 miles north of Niagara Falls. Inside, guests are greeted by an old world ambiance enhanced with modern-day amenities. Guest rooms feature period pieces like canopied four-poster beds (in some rooms) and antique light fixtures, as well as Keurig coffee makers, Bose Wave systems and high-speed wireless Internet access (included in the room rate). Visitors are especially impressed with the property's cuisine: Noble, the on-site restaurant, serves local specialties paired with wines from the region. But to really get a taste of the Victorian lifestyle, savor Traditional Afternoon Tea in the Victorian Drawing Room. Most previous visitors say the decadent experience is worthwhile, praising the charming atmosphere and tasty cuisine. Indulge even further with a rejuvenating body treatment or massage at the Secret Garden Spa. Guests are also invited to explore the nearby facilities at the Prince of Wales' sister properties, Queen's Landing and Pillar and Post.

Perched between two lakes, with a high mountain backdrop, this hotel has the best view in town. A high steeple crowns the building, which is fantastically ornamented with eaves, balconies, and turrets.
