Where to stay in Charlottetown

There's no better area from which to enjoy the city's iconic buildings than the center and its neighboring suburb, Spring Park. Here, you'll find the bulk of the city's accommodations, typically guesthouses or inns housed tastefully in restored old buildings. If you want views over the harbor, look closer to the waterfront to choose from several higher-end hotels. The neighborhood of West Royalty, located conveniently close to the University of Prince Edward Island, also offers a selection of budget to mid-range accommodations.
