Ontario hotels opening in 2024

Somewhere Inn Collingwood

128 St Paul St., Collingwood

Somewhere Inn, a revived boutique motel two hours outside of Ottawa, may have been a product of the pandemic (owners Joel Greaves and Devon Vaillancourt opened the hotel in 2021), but the success of retro motel dwellings never dulled. Even after lockdowns lifted, Ontarians have been actively seeking quirky getaways within the province.

This year sees an extension of the brand with the opening of a 10-room property in Collingwood slated for March 2024. Staycationers will be able to enjoy adorably decorated rooms — without TVs, because, relaxation — just two hours outside of the GTA. Plus, Somewhere Inn's lobby lounge will act as a café in the morning for coffee and local treats, before turning into a laid-back spot to grab a glass of natural vino later in the day.

The Postmark Hotel

180 Main St. S., Newmarket

This landmark building will be getting a glam alter-ego in spring 2024 when the highly anticipated Postmark Hotel opens its doors. The transformation from a historical post office and community hub on Newmarket’s charming Main Street to a boutique hotel, restaurant and bar is almost complete. And, given that it's from the same group as The Broadview Hotel, we have seriously high hopes for this gorgeous opening.

Moxy Ottawa
