Our expert advice on where to stay in St. John's

To appreciate the history and colorful architecture of North America's oldest colonial city, there's no better place to stay than in the city center. This popular neighborhood displays the city's iconic, brightly painted Victorian houses, with a selection of guesthouses and inns clustered around Government House. Staying just west of the city center, near the Memorial University of Newfoundland, works as a pleasant alternative, with the expansive Pippy Park right at your doorstep.
