The photogenic Wolastoq meanders through New Brunswick’s historic capital, connecting it to the Bay of Fundy. Our recommended hotels in Downtown Fredericton, Canada, are ideal places in which to soak up history while sampling the local cuisine and the extensive selection of craft beers in the city. Or, choose lower prices, and go for highway convenience at our other options – they’re bookable with Culture Trip.

1. Delta Fredericton, for barbecue and beer

Based here at the elegant Delta, right on the riverfront, you’ll enjoy sunset views from your room or from the hotel dock. The seven-story hotel has just over 200 light-filled rooms and 19 suites, provisioned not just with minifridge and microwave but with actual cutlery, too – so you can dine properly. Onsite is the popular barbeque restaurant STMR 36 BBQ & Social, which serves STMR.36 Pale Ale and many local brews. The Delta has both indoor and outdoor pools and a spa. It’s a 20-minute stroll past Wilmot Park to Downtown, four minutes by car – just note that parking isn’t included in the room rate.

2. Swim and steam at Crowne Plaza Fredericton-Lord Beaverbrook

Here you’re on the eastern side of Downtown, next to the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, which displays the oldest birchbark canoe in the world (a remarkable relic built 260 years ago). This four-star hotel sits along the river and about 90km (55mi) of groomed trails. Part of the InterContinental brand, it has comfortable rooms of sedate modern style; five are completely wheelchair accessible. Two restaurants are on site, including the Joyce, with its farm-to-table cuisine and 37 New Brunswick beers on tap. The large indoor saltwater pool has room for both doing laps and for splashing kids; relax afterward in the hot tub and steam room. Parking costs extra, but pets can stay in ground-floor rooms for free.

3. Hilton Garden Inn Fredericton, for family stays

Downtown, across Queen Street from the Crowne Plaza and the river, a skywalk connects the 110-room hotel to the Convention Centre – convenient when the weather is not playing ball. You’re super-close to the Fredericton Playhouse and a handful of unique places to eat; at the hotel, Southside Shake is the first gin bar in Fredericton. Rooms are brightened with dashes of color and, with minifridges and microwaves, are great for families. Several rooms are spaciously designed for wheelchair users, with lowered switches, vanities, toilets and closets, plus accessible roll-in showers with seating. Parking is not included in the rates.

4. Lobster heaven at Fredericton Inn

One of few Fredericton hotels not part of a chain, this 200-room inn is popular for conventions and for kids’ sports teams traveling to tournaments. In Upper Fredericton, just off the Fredericton Bypass (Route 8) next to the Regent Mall, it’s 10 minutes by car to the riverfront downtown. The decor is retro, in a heavy-dresser, brass-handled kind of way, and the place is good for kids, who are happy splashing in the indoor pool and popping to the nearby mall. If it’s lobster season, be sure to try the offering of lobster supper. The two onsite restaurants each offer a classic buffet at lunch or dinner.

5. Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Fredericton, for nature nearby

Four minutes down the highway from Regent Mall is this contemporary midsize hotel. It’s set back from the road in fine surroundings – next to a swathe of the extensive forested parklands in the city (60% of the municipality is forested). Local art hangs on the walls, and a convenient lap-desk allows you to work in the armchair with your feet up. Several rooms are accessible for people with mobility or hearing disabilities, with roll-in showers, easy-to-reach amenities and visual alarms. A protein-laden hot breakfast is included, and you’ll have a minifridge and microwave in your room. There’s even a small indoor pool to plunge into, to rinse away the day.

6. City sophistication at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Fredericton Hotel in Fredericton by IHG

There’s plenty of commerce going on around here – car dealerships, auto glass shops, a few restaurants – yet tranquillity reigns at this hotel: you’re almost next door to the Fredericton Botanic Garden and the immense Odell Park with its 400-year-old trees. The hotel provides a friendly maritime welcome in its spacious lobby, with several places made for hanging out, plus a buffet breakfast with lots of sweet and savory treats. There’s a convenient station to fill your reusable water bottle, and pets are welcomed without a fee. Rooms are more city-sophisticated than suburban and have a microwave, a minifridge and even a pillow menu.

7. Quality Inn & Suites Amsterdam, for simplicity and serenity

Charge up your e-car while you play Nintendo at this moderate property overlooking Route 8. Rooms are perfectly comfortable, spruced up by grey accent walls and great for budgeteers – there’s a minifridge, while a hot breakfast with eggs served every which way is included in the room rate. If you get a ground-floor room, you’ll have both a door to the interior hallway and, motel-style, out to the parking lot – coveted by anyone traveling with a dog. Two pets are allowed, each at a charge of $15 per night.

8. Comfort Inn Fredericton, for traditional reliability

This moderate Fredericton hotel is a welcome two-story brick affair. It’s near Route 8, but you’re unlikely to hear its traffic, and it backs on to forested Odell Park. The cheerful red-accented lobby extends a warm welcome – there’s a fireplace – and spacious rooms are equal parts elegant and simple, in tones of taupe and wood (request a room with a minifridge and microwave if you plan on economizing). Ground-floor rooms open to the parking area, and the hotel allows pets for no extra charge. Rates include a free hot breakfast. A fitness room and coin-operated laundry are at hand if you want them.
