Fall Foliage Hotels :: Prince of Wales Found In Ontario
October 1, 2008 at 9:18 AM
October begins today. The month ushers in with it the transformation of brightly colored leaves and crisp, comfortable air. After we finish our trips to bungalows on the beach and before we head off to ski resorts, there are a few places best suited for taking in Autumn.
At Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, Canada, in addition to the abundance of foliage in the surrounding areas, fall offers the town's best wine tours and its annual Shaw Festival, a play series held at local venues. The most renowned and, well, fanciest hotel in town is Prince of Wales, which takes its moniker literally.
Afternoon tea is serious business there and the ornate Victorian décor is worthy of a visit by Charles himself.
It's also centrally located right on the town's main street and next to its main park. Amenities include an indoor pool and a spa. Bathrooms even have bidets. Now that's royal treatment.
To set yourself up with hot spots for taking in the changing leaves all through autumn, check out our Fall Foliage Hotel Picks.
