Close to the water’s edge in the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Shaw Club — although traditional and quaint on the outside — boasts a sleek, modern interior reminiscent of a private club. You can enjoy an exclusive lounge decked out with an entertainment system, as well as free Wi-Fi, parking and a shuttle into town each evening. The hotel restaurant, Zees Grill, is highly rated as one of the town’s best dining spots, where you can eat inside or outdoors on the patio.
The hotel is small and intimate with a contemporary design, and the staff are attentive without being overly intrusive, giving it a member’s club feel. The dedication to service here is evident in the hotel’s many awards and accolades.
The hotel has a number of room types, each with complimentary Wi-Fi, a plasma TV with DVD player, refrigerator, coffee maker and bathrobes. The King Suite and some of the deluxe king rooms have a private balcony, while others feature a whirlpool bath or fireplace. In the bathrooms you’ll find huge rainfall showers and glass vanity units with stainless-steel basins.
Shaw Club stands opposite Shaw Festival Theatre on one of the town’s main streets. You can explore local attractions either on foot, by bicycle or making use of the free shuttle. Walk down Queen’s Parade and within 10 minutes you’ll reach the National Historic Site of Fort George. A short walk in the other direction takes you to many of the town’s best shops and restaurants. Niagara Falls is just a 35-minute drive from the hotel.
Food and Drink
Zees Grill serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner daily. The restaurant puts together a varied menu and has won several awards for its imaginative dishes. You can enjoy pre- or post-theatre dining, or linger over a leisurely brunch on the patio.
The King Suite can sleep up to four guests, with a sofa bed in a separate room.
Facilities and Activities
There’s a private lounge in the lobby exclusively for guests, with an entertainment system, a laptop with Internet access, and complimentary hot drinks. You can also pick up a DVD to watch in your room.
The hotel also offers off-road parking, a bicycle share scheme and a complimentary shuttle service into town.
We like how Shaw Club maintains its traditions within a modern, boutique setting. We found the staff extremely welcoming and attentive, right down to the finer details. This is a stylish property in the scenic setting of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
