Adjacent to leafy Stanley Park in Vancouver, Rosellen Suites is a collection of stylish one- and two-bedroom apartments. Decor is luxe, with wood-burning fireplaces, plush sofas and neutral palettes. For a large party, the old Hollywood-esque Katharine Hepburn Penthouse sleeps up to 12 adults and has separate lounge and dining areas, a wraparound deck and an outdoor barbecue.

As the name suggests, Sky Residences is where to stay in Canada for fans of the high life, stretching far into the Vancouver skyline. Each of the four apartments (there’s a one-, two- and three-bed, plus a penthouse) makes the most of the views with floor-to-ceiling windows in each room. Kitchens are fully equipped, bathrooms offer walk-in showers and tubs, and there’s a lounge, dining area and laundry facilities, too.

The floor-to-ceiling windows allow for an abundance of natural light, and bathrooms have rainfall showers and Aveda amenities. If you’re looking for a quiet night in, a private cinema room is available on request.

Stretching high into the Toronto skyline, Sky Suites Yorkville is perfectly placed next to the famed Mink Mile – so shopping is a must. Residences are mostly monochromatic, with thoughtful design and panoramic views of the city. Marble-clad ensuites are a staple here, and kitchens include a ceramic cooktop and blender, should you want to make a morning smoothie.

5. Lofts du Vieux-Port, Montreal

A short stroll to the Old Port, Lofts du Vieux-Port in Montreal is a collection of design-led apartments, studios and lofts. Ceilings are high, and the decor will appeal to minimalists (think exposed brick or stone walls, king-size beds and monochromatic bedrooms.) When you manage to pull yourself away, the neighborhoods of downtown, the Village and Chinatown are all within walking distance.

6. Maison Saint-Vincent, Montreal

Behind a gray brick facade, which dates to 1858, Maison Saint-Vincent offers a very modern abode. Each of the 10 rooms is individually decorated, with soft color palettes – blush pinks and royal blues feature regularly. There’s a touch of European flair here, too, with French door windows, floating shelves, clever kitchenettes and pared-back artwork adorning the walls.

7. LEVEL Furnished Living Yaletown Seymour, Vancouver

Plonked neatly in downtown Vancouver, LEVEL sits alongside plenty of buzzy eateries, bars and clubs. There are four types of suites, from studio-style to one- and two-bedroom apartments and even a townhome – the latter comes with an open-air patio as well. For when you want to unwind, make a beeline for the heated outdoor saltwater pool.

8. Bill's Place, Alberta


In the Rocky Mountain town of Canmore, fringing the ever-picturesque Banff National Park, Bill’s Place is where to go in Canada for scenic adventures. With five beautifully appointed bedrooms (each of the four ensuites has underfloor heating), larger parties will love the privacy it affords. When you’re not cooking in the kitchen or lounging in one of the living areas, you’ll be captivated by the mountain views through the windows.
