From coast to coast, the true north has some pretty incredible places to visit, eat, explore and stay – but who comes out on top? Fellow publication Travel and Leisure has just published their annual list of 10 best city hotels in Canada and man, do we wish it was a better time to travel.

This year, like those before it, each hotel was nominated, voted on and scored by readers from all over the globe using a rubric that included everything from facility management and service to food and overall value – which is a whole lot to take into consideration.
