Whether we’re discovering hidden gems off the beaten path or dining at a restaurant full of locals, we’re always determined to feel at home when we travel. The annex, a brand new boutique hotel named after the Annex neighbourhood, understands that hotels aren’t just a place to sleep – they’re also a place to live. That’s why they’ve dispensed with all the unnecessaries so you can settle into your home away from home and live like a local.

Check in ahead of time online, let yourself in with a code, and start making yourself at home. The hotel is filled with work from handpicked local artists and musicians to bring the community to your doorstep. Help yourself to BMV books and Sonic Boom records in your room, then snuggle up in a Merchant Sons sweatshirt blanket. If you don’t feel like leaving, there’s so much going on at the annex to keep you entertained. Reunion Island Coffee will fuel all your caffeine needs in the lobby, while Seven Lives Tacos and Big Trouble Pizza are prime snacking spots located inside the annex Commons.

To celebrate the launch of the annex, we’re giving away a very special staycation package for one lucky Escapism reader and a guest. The winner will also receive a dinner experience for two with a wine pairing.
