Where to stay in St. John's

The popularity of St. John's means you can choose from a decent selection of accommodations in town. Most consist of budget and mid-range hotels lining the bay--you can expect complimentary breakfast and free parking at humble but comfortable lodgings. Look a few streets back from the water, around VC Bird Monument, for more affordable options.
