Top 5 Restaurant/Hotel Combos

By Patrick Bisson

If you find yourself in beautiful Kingston, you’ll likely notice our abundance of awesome restaurants. And while we certainly wouldn’t want to discourage you from discovering a new favourite on your own accord – can we make a suggestion?
Some of the best restaurants in the world are just a stone’s throw away from a hotel lobby! So get ready, because we’re shining the spotlight on some of Kingston’s gems – all located in Kingston’s finest hotels (talk about convenient for you out-of-towners)!

AquaTerra + The Vu

1 Johnson Street, Delta Hotels Kingston Waterfront

Literally located on the waterfront in the Delta Hotels Kingston Waterfront, AquaTerra has been featured on Where to Eat in Canada for more than a decade and has a reputation as one of Kingston’s premiere, not-to-be-missed dining experiences.

Next time you feel like indulging, try something from their new lunch menu which features tried and true classics like grilled cheese and tomato mozzarella – or for the more adventurous, give their Tuna Nicoise or Tarte Flambe a taste.

The Cavelier Room

2360 Princess Street, Travelodge Kingston LaSalle

Located in Kingston’s west end, The Cavelier Room at the Travelodge Kingston LaSalle Hotel might just be the city’s best-kept brunch secret. Popular yet unassuming, The Cavelier Room features a pretty robust breakfast menu with all the usual suspects, plus a build-your-own omelette option. Their lunch and dinner menu is just as diverse and delicious (here you’ll find items that range from Club Sandwiches to Escargots Bourguignonne) and the price points are pretty competitive. Topped off with ample parking, see for yourself why The Cavelier Room is a winner.

Dox Restaurant + Lounge

2 Princess Street, Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront

Tucked away inside the Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront is Dox Restaurant + Lounge, a hidden gem known for their beautiful views of the waterfront, buffet breakfast and during warmer months, their fantastic patio. Offering a unique blend of Canadian Fusion cuisine, the culinary team behind Dox has created an eclectic menu that has a little something for everyone.

JM’s Restaurant + Lounge

1550 Princess Street, The Ambassador Hotel + Conference Centre

Conveniently located inside the Ambassador Hotel + Conference Centre is JM’s Restaurant + Lounge, known locally as a great family restaurant with excellent service and the best roast beef in town. They recently launched an exciting new wine menu, featuring favourites from Peller Estates.
Try them out over the holidays, when they feature a Christmas Day Buffet ($29 for adults and $14.50 for children 10 and under) with seatings at 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 pm and a New Year’s Eve Buffet with Prime Rib. You don’t need to make reservations for either, but they’re recommend.

King Street Sizzle Restaurant + Bar

285 King Street East, Four Points by Sheraton

You don’t need to be a guest at the Four Points by Sheraton to enjoy a dinner (or lunch or breakfast, frankly) at King Street Sizzle Bar + Restaurant. Guests rave about the exceptional service and the fast and delicious breakfasts, with many praising the affordable price points. With a welcoming atmosphere and fresh made entrees crafted with the finest organic ingredients available, Sizzle is one Kingston restaurant you should definitely think about enjoying.

Stop by this winter and try their new Local Teaser combo, featuring 4 Ontario draft beers from Mackinnon Brothers Brewing, Mill Street, and Steam Whistle plus 1 Waupous Pear Cider – accompanied by a classic charcuterie board of local meats and cheeses for just $35.
