Closer to home, the Ritz-Carlton in Montreal was ranked as Canada's top hotel for 2021, while the Ritz-Carlton in Toronto took fourth place. 

Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Vancouver, B.C. took the place of the second-best hotel in the country.

Here's the list of Canada's top five hotels of 2021, according to U.S. News:

  1. Ritz-Carlton Montréal

  2. Rosewood Hotel Georgia (British Columbia)

  3. Fogo Island Inn (Newfoundland)

  4. The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto 

  5. Fairmont Pacific Rim (British Columbia)

U.S. News' statement says it did not include COVID-19 data in its rankings for 2021.  

You can view the top five hotels in each global region on the U.S. News webpage.

If you don't have enough reason — or money — for a staycation at the Ritz, you can still get the Ritz experience by dining at its restaurant, grabbing a drink at its bar or relaxing at its spa... once those things open up again.

Or you can bring the Ritz to you by ordering food from Maison Boulud, available for take-out and delivery via DoorDash.
