Niagara-on-the-Lake is a charming destination year-round, but becomes something truly special during the holidays feeling like you’ve stepped right onto the set of a Hallmark movie.
Just a 1.5 hour drive from the city, it’s the perfect place to recharge, and what better way to do it than at a luxurious hotel and spa in a quaint town?
124 on Queen is a modern, boutique-style accommodation with an onsite spa located right on the town’s picturesque Queen Street, just steps away from tons of shops, cafes, galleries, and restaurants.
The hotel has undergone a number of renovations over the past two years, including the addition of 39 guestrooms, the world-class Spa at Q with hydrotherapy circuit, new lobby bar and restaurant, outdoor garden and event space, lobby Starbucks, and underground parking garage.
From the street, the hotel blends right into the surrounding heritage buildings, but once you step inside, you immediately notice the contemporary, luxe touches.
The 72 rooms and suites are noticeably spacious compared to what you’d find in the city, in elegant shades of whites, greys, and royal blues complemented with gold accents. You can have your choice between signature king and queen rooms, or opt for a larger suite or villa.
From the marble rainfall showers stocked with L’Occitane products to the in-room electric fireplaces, you’ll never want to leave your room; however, there’s so much more pampering to be done just a few floors below.
The Spa at Q spans 12,000-square-feet, with a robust menu of offerings like massages, facials, body treatments, and mani-pedis. The main attraction however is its gorgeous hydrotherapy circuit, featuring pools, a sauna, steam room, sensory showers, and an incredible snow room where it even snows inside.
The spa is open to non-hotel guests as well, who can book a pass or treatment and stop by for the day.
Once you’re finished getting pampered at the spa, stop by the NOTL Bar & Restaurant for a cocktail or bite to eat, located on the main floor.
Alternatively, head just next door to the intimate farm-to-table Treadwell Cuisine restaurant, serving up a rotating menu of local flavours from the surrounding area farms.
Don’t miss the wine, as Treadwell’s cellar boasts the largest number of Ontario wines in the world, and will pair it perfectly with your selections from the four-course dinner menu.
Nearby, there’s no shortage of incredible wineries just a short drive away. If you visit during the holiday season before January 7, you can also catch Canada’s largest free outdoor light festival, the Winter Festival of Lights.
124 on Queen has a number of winter packages you can browse on their website to plan your ideal winter escape.
