With four stunning properties, including three in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., and one in Caledon, Ont., Vintage Hotels invites meeting planners to leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind for the serenity of greener surroundings.
Prince of Wales, Pillar and Post, Queen’s Landing and Millcroft Inn & Spa are all CAA/ AAA Four-Diamond properties featuring upscale accommodations, fine dining and historic charm. The award-winning hotels offer a combined 40,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space and can accommodate groups of between 10 and 400.
In 2009, Prince of Wales was voted number- one Hotel in Ontario by Travel + Leisure magazine and has also appeared on the Condé Nast Gold List. Established in 1864, the elegant 110-room hotel with its Victorian décor is one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s most historic landmarks. The hotel features the fine dining of Escabèche, as well as traditional afternoon tea in The Drawing Room and the pampering treatments of the world-class Secret Garden Spa.
Country charm and contemporary accommodations characterize Pillar and Post, Ontario’s only Five-Star Country Inn (Canada Select). Functional meetings are a priority, with more than 11,000 sq. ft. of flexible space. Accommodations at Pillar and Post include luxurious features such as plush hypoallergenic duvets, 300-thread-count sheets, 37-inch LCD televisions and high-speed Internet, while many of the 122 guestrooms feature the added comforts of fireplaces and jetted tubs. Pillar and Post also offers the mouthwatering cuisine of Cannery Restaurant, complemented by a wide array of awardwinning wines. After a long day of meetings, 100 Fountain Spa is the place to unwind with its 12 treatment rooms and manicure and pedicure salon.
The stately Georgian-style mansion setting of Queen’s Landing earned the 142- room property a number-one ranking among Ontario hotels in the Condé Nast Readers Choice Awards for 2009. Overlooking the scenic Niagara River, Queen’s Landing offers more than 15,000 sq. ft. of state-of-the-art executive meeting facilities, ranging from the elegant and grandiose setting of the Grand Georgian Ballroom, to more than a dozen smaller meeting rooms for breakout sessions and more intimate gatherings. Many of the hotel’s guestrooms feature cozy fireplaces and jetted tubs, while additional hotel amenities include valet parking, an indoor saltwater pool and sauna facilities.
Winner of the Fodor’s Choice Award of Distinction in 2008, Millcroft Inn & Spa is the ideal country retreat for a brainstorming session or intimate group event. Just 45 Vintage Hotels minutes from Toronto, the 52-room inn is seemingly worlds away, with its Four-Diamond accommodations, delectable cuisine and more than 4,500 sq. ft. of intimate meeting space in the rolling hills of Caledon. When it comes to functional meetings, the vintage-style property’s historic charm gives way to modern elegance with a host of superb business amenities.
