Where to Stay

Hamilton’s lodgings are a clear reflection of the city’s attributes. Modern, downtown hotels are close to the action for lovers of the arts, dining and nightlife. Suburban hotels and motels offer comfortable accommodations at family-friendly rates.

But hotels are just the beginning. As more travellers seek a room with authentic character, Hamilton’s bed-and-breakfast facilities are coming into their own. There are more than two dozen, each as unique as the owner and the building. Another option is provided by the three separate college and university residences that offer value-packed summer stays when the students head home for the holidays.

And for those who like their nature up close and personal, there are a variety of camping options, both in public conservation areas and private campgrounds.
