  • Share a fun experience to remember with your Dad
  • Stay at gold winners of Hotels.com Loved by Guests Awards 2016

TORONTO – May 26, 2016: Instead of giving your Dad the proverbial new necktie this Father’s Day, why not give him an experience you will both remember? Spend some quality time with him doing something he loves while doing it in a different setting. To inspire your gift-giving, here are five activities popular with Dads that you can try in different places in Canada. We’ve paired them with nearby hotels that are gold winners of the prestigious Hotels.com™ Loved by Guests Awards 2016.*

The guests are the judges in this annual awards program from Hotels.com. Pulled from more than 25 million genuine and trusted reviews from guests who have actually checked-in, the Loved by Guests awards recognizes those hotels who have achieved the best average guest review rating. Here are five hotels with dad-approved activities to match.

CATCH A BASEBALL GAME IN TORONTO
Trump International Tower and Hotel
Guest Review Rating: 4.8/5 on Hotels.com
Get your father off the couch and take him out to the old ball game, specifically to a Blue Jays game at Rogers Center in Toronto. A major-league baseball game deserves a stay in a major-league hotel, so for your downtown visit, check in to the Trump International Tower and Hotel. It’s a lavish, five-star hotel that offers exceptional service and rooms with a view. Rooms available from $311 per night. **

GO GOLFING IN CAPE BRETON
Hampton Inn Sydney Nova Scotia
Guest Review Rating: 4.7/5 on Hotels.com
Canada has a host of top-notch golf courses. Some of the best can be found in Cape Breton in Nova Scotia including Cabot Links in Inverness. It’s considered by many to be the best in the country which is no surprise for an area that so closely resembles golf’s birthplace of Scotland that they named the province New Scotland. Stay in Cape Breton’s biggest city, Sydney, at the Hampton Inn, a gold winner of Hotels.com’s Loved by Guests Awards. Rooms available from $117 per night

RIDE A MOUNTAIN BIKE IN WHISTLER

Four Seasons Resort Whistler
Guest Review Rating: 4.7/5 on Hotels.com
If your father is the sporty type, he might like to try his hand at a bit of mountain biking and what better place to do it that among the Rocky Mountains, the most beautiful in Canada. Take him to the Whistler Mountain Bike Park where he can get a few lessons from the best in the business. Soothe your sore muscles afterwards at the spa at the Four Seasons Resort in Whistler, a five-star establishment that is a favourite with guests. Rooms available from $297 per night.

ENJOY FINE FOOD AND DRINK IN MONTREAL

Hotel Le St-James Montreal
Guest Review Rating: 4.8/5 on Hotels.com

When it comes to food, there’s no better place in Canada to indulge yourself than Montreal. Only New York City has more restaurants per capita than Quebec’s largest city. Take your father to one of the city’s many eateries that run the gamut of styles from smoked meat and poutine to the finest of French cuisine. To complete the treat, spend your time in one of the city’s most opulent boutique hotels, Le St-James in Old Montreal. Rooms available from $975 per night.

GO FISHING IN WINNIPEG

Homewood Suites By Hilton Winnipeg Airport-Polo Park, Winnipeg
Guest Review Rating: 4.7/5 on Hotels.com

Coursing through the heart of Winnipeg are the Assiniboine and the Red Rivers, both popular spots for urban anglers. Pickerels and walleyes are fish species commonly found here, but if you want to catch something bigger, hire a guide to take you out on the water to go after the massive channel catfish that lurk in these waters.  After your day on the river, relax at the Homewood Suites by Hilton, a short drive from downtown. It’s known for exceptional service and comfort that earned it gold in the Hotels.com Loved by Guests Awards.  Rooms available from $117 per night.

All of these stunning, award-winning hotels, plus hundreds of thousands more, can be booked online via Hotels.com or through the mobile app available for IOS, Android, Windows and Amazon Kindle devices, where customers also have access to special Secret Prices*** to help them save even more on their next stay away.
