Overlooking Halifax Harbour, the Westin Nova Scotian’s Crown Suite (above) is where visiting royals often rest their heads in Halifax. It only sleeps two, but the suite is kitted out like a condo—albeit one with a boardroom! Queen Elizabeth II overnighted in 1959 and 1976, while Prince Charles and Princess Diana attended a state dinner here in 1983. A crowds of thousands swelled outside the hotel hoping to catch a glimpse of the couple before they returned to the HMY Britannia for their departure.

Strawberry Hill Resort, Little Rapids, Newfoundland
Nestled in Newfoundland’s tranquil Humber Valley, Queen Elizabeth II visited the charming Strawberry Hill Resort in both 1959 and 1978. A spacious suite was built just for her visit, and guests booking into the Queen’s Room (above) can lounge on the exact same furniture as Her Majesty. Make the most of your own royal visit by putting on your wellies and hitting the trails that criss-cross the property, followed by afternoon tea on the terrace overlooking the majestic Humber River.
