For now, though, let’s focus on our recommendations for the best hotels in Kelowna.
Enjoy a Waterfront Location at the Hotel Eldorado and Manteo Resort
The Hotel Eldorado and the Manteo Resort sit side by side on the shore of Okanagan Lake. And while they are different accommodation options, they share the same ownership.
Established in 1926 by Countess Bubna, an aristocratic English woman, the Hotel Eldorado is rich in warmth, heritage, and old-world charm. And the passing decades have only added to this character!
Today, this hotel makes an excellent choice for your vacation due to its stunning waterfront location, private boardwalk, luxury marina, and Kelowna’s number one outdoor venue — its rooftop terrace complete with unobstructed, unparalleled views of the lake and mountains.
And the sunset views are spectacular from this vantage point too. The Manteo at Eldorado Resort is a more modern blend of calm, comfort, and convenience.
The resort covers seven acres of prime lakefront real estate. It has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, incredible on-site restaurants, and bars and lounges with gorgeous views of the valley.
The Hotel Eldorado and Mateo Resort are within walking distance of boutiques, cafes, and world-class wineries, so there’s plenty to explore over multiple days.
But if you’re only in town for a short stay, find inspiration for an action-packed trip with our one-day itinerary for visiting Kelowna.
Rest and Relax in the Modern and Luxurious Hyatt Place
As the newest hotel on this list, it’s no surprise Hyatt Place has chic modern interiors.
This hotel sits in Kelowna’s business district, not far from highly-rated restaurants and typical shops.
The elegant rooms and suites have thoughtful design touches like the signature Cozy Corner, the perfect place to curl up and relax between adventures in and around town.
Hyatt Place ticks every box for discerning travellers with complimentary breakfast and internet, a fitness center, a swimming pool, a laundry service, a restaurant, and a bar.

Stay Central at the Stylish Coast Capri
Located in Central City, Coast Capri is the perfect option for anyone who wants to be in the thick of the action. This bustling part of Kelowna is home to inviting bars and restaurants. Our farmers’ and crafters’ market is a short distance away too.
And you’re only a few blocks from Bernard Avenue, the city’s main shopping street. This, in turn, leads to the heart of downtown Okanagan Lake, lakeside parks, public art in the Cultural District, and much more.
At Coast Capri, you’ll find that what many other hotels class as extras come as standard. Free internet, free parking, pet-friendly suites and rooms, and use of a seasonally opened, heated pool — this centrally located hotel makes a stylish and comfortable home away from home.

Find Nature Views and City Convenience at the Delta Hotel
Another of Kelowna’s premier lakeside hotels, the Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort, offers scenic luxury with all the conveniences of being downtown.
This hotel overlooks Okanagan Lake, so expect picturesque views of the water framed by the mountains beyond. The Waterfront Park, Kelowna Boardwalk, and Tugboat Beach are on the hotel’s doorstep, too, so you can head for a refreshing morning walk, a leisurely after-dinner stroll, or anything in between.
