C1A 7M4 Travel Guide
This is not so much a bar hop as a bar marathon that runs (get it?) the entire length of Canada. If you have the stamina, so do we.
You’re in the wind-battered east coast of Canada, in Charlottetown, PEI to be exact. The autumn weather’s chilly off of the water and you’re looking for a cozy place in which to warm up. Well, if that’s where you are right now, then The Holman Grand hotel’s Redwater Rustic Grille is where you should be.
Well, it didn’t take 25 years to build, but it is the first hotel to be built in downtown Charlottetown in 25 years, located in the smallest Canadian province of Prince Edward Island.
For those of us who believe that there’s more to PEI than Anne of Green Gables, this hotel - in the old home of the Holman Department Store - puts you in the very center of the action in Charlottetown. Connected to the Confederation Centre of the Arts (housing several theaters and an art gallery highlighting Canadian art), The Holman Grand is found in the historic section of town, with shopping and restaurants right there.
The hotel definitely has a nature / nautical theme going on, with rooms having hardwood floors, light woods, and accent colors of marine blue, moss green or rust red – appropriate since this is a maritime city with red sand beaches close by. Staying away from cutting-edge design, the rooms are light and contemporary, and make you feel like curling up with a blankey, a pot of tea and finally making a start on Moby Dick.
