Set in three 17th-century buildings, this boutique hotel is very close to the Musée de la civilisation.
Boasting over 300 years of history, the property was used as a wharf, cannon battery and a port for British merchants. Archeological digs around the sites found artifacts dating back to 1600s. The luxurious hotel was a significant sentry of Quebec's history.
Originally built in 1846, the hotel was remodeled in 1854 for more luxurious accommodations. In 1864, the hotel housed the Charlottetown Conference where Prince Edward Island became the Birthplace of Confederation. Over the course of a hundred years, the properties were renovated and repaired while maintaining its roots.
Originally named Hotel Albion in 1830, the hotel's name was changed to Hotel Victoria in 1895. In 1902, the hotel was destroyed by fire and had to be renovated. It became a popular and fashionable destination in high-society during the 1920s thanks to its outstanding gastronomy. Two decades later, the hotel was again partially burned down and was again rebuilt while maintaining its reputation for extraordinary cuisines. During the 50s, its walls were a meeting place among the young local crowd. In 1988 and later in 2012, the hotel was repeatedly renovated with modernity and luxury in mind.
The hotel was named after the Duke and Duchess of York, later known as King George V and Queen Mary. Built around 1864, the hotel underwent many renovations over the course of a hundred years. In 1975, it was bought by the Wiens family who expanded the property. It was later included in the Vintage Hotel Properties in 1997.
Named after John Palliser. The hotel was built within Edwardian-era architecture in mind and Renaissance-inspired interiors. Opened in 1914 and gained a Heraldic Badge granted by the Crown in 1993. Within its walls, prime ministers, royalties and celebrities lived to experience the Canadian rockies and the bright city of Calgary.

Prized dearly for its Second Empire Architecture. Although it was originally built as a private residence in 1869 by William Ritchie as a wedding gift, the hotel was vacant for several years after they decided to open in up for tenants. In 1897, it was used as a local church and a private school until 1906. It was again repurposed as a hotel but only until the Roaring Twenties did the hotel gain a steady influx of travellers. Due to the budding tourism in Annapolis Royal, the vintage architecture became popular and sought-after to travellers and history-lovers alike.
