Travel + Leisure announces the World’s Best Awards 2022

Magnolia Hotel & Spa is thrilled to be named #4 Best City Hotel in Canada, as voted for by Travel + Leisure readers, with an overall score of 93.60.

Every year the readers of Travel + Leisure, the largest travel magazine brand in the United States, vote on their favourite hotels, resorts, destinations and travel brands and the winners are announced in the annual World’s Best Awards. 

“We are truly honoured to be included in this landmark list, especially when placed alongside such incredible company,” says Bill Lewis, general manager of the Magnolia Hotel & Spa. “We’d like to thank each guest who took the time to vote for us, as well as our talented and dedicated team who deserve every ounce of this recognition.”

According to Travel + Leisure correspondent Liz Cantrell: “In choosing the best city hotels in Canada, readers prioritized service and location. In the port city of Victoria, British Columbia, that meant proximity to the picturesque harbor, which serves as a jumping-off point for whale-watching tours. Of the No. 4 Magnolia Hotel and Spa, one traveler said, “Every staff member we came in contact with was exceptional. Will be back for sure and have told my friends about it.”

The category showcases excellence in Canadian city accommodation and features just one other boutique hotel, Auberge Saint-Antoine in Quebec City (#1). Other luxury properties include the Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Vancouver (#2) and the Ritz Carlton Montreal (#5). Victoria was recognized as #3 Best City in Canada and Vancouver Island secured #3 Best Island in Canada

The full result list will be published in the August 2022 issue of Travel + Leisure and available online at
