Just northeast of the biggest metropolis in Canada, Toronto, Markham is a culturally diverse city with 19th-century buildings, quaint art galleries and plenty of trademark Canadian natural beauty. Whatever draws you here – business meetups in the local tech district, family gatherings or the thrills of nearby theme park Canada’s Wonderland – you’ll be needing somewhere comfortable to stay. Here are the best hotels in Markham, Canada – bookable on Culture Trip.

Hilton Toronto / Markham Suites Conference Centre and Spa, for first-rate fitness facilities

If you’d like a stay with a bit of nearby green space, Hilton Toronto / Markham Suites Conference Centre and Spa is a natural pick – here, you’re right across the street from pond-dappled Millennium Park, where there’s a skating rink. If you’re a business traveler, there’s even more to like, including extensive conference facilities and an executive lounge. At the end of a long day of meetings, unwind by the indoor pool, at the fitness center – complete with yoga classes and a squash court – or in the on-site spa.

Fussy about interior style? Book into Toronto Marriott Markham, a glossy new build close to the trendy restaurants and tech business hubs of downtown, as well as the vibrant Varley Art Gallery. The rooms, dressed in sleek dark woods with pops of abstract art, provide vistas of the city sprawled out below, but the views don’t get better than from the rooftop lounge bar, complete with sun-drenched seating areas. There’s a large fitness center and an infinity pool with colorful window art, too.

Liberty Suites, for self-catering convenience

You certainly won’t go hungry when you book into Liberty Suites Hotel. The apartment suites here are moments from seafood eateries, juice bars and Korean barbecue restaurants – but they also come fully kitted out with their own kitchenettes, so you can prep a slap-up breakfast in your pajamas if you fancy. Rooms are dressed in neutral greys and cream with pops of red. Meanwhile, a 24-hour concierge will provide you with hotel-style service, even if you are planning to self-cater.

Courtyard by Marriott Toronto Northeast / Markham, for city center exploration

Like to take in a bit of the local area when you’re away? This hotel puts you just where you want to be. For outdoor fans, Milne Dam Conservation Park and Rouge Valley Park are both nearby for scenic walks. For culture vultures, the capital of Ontario, Toronto, is an easy drive to the south. If you want to stay put, this is still a great place. The cheery bedrooms with sky blues, cloud whites and pops of sunshine yellow are comfy, and many sleep up to four people – perfect for families.
