Welcome to the Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel

The Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel offers the best location in the city overlooking Lake Superior and the vibrant Waterfront District. With fantastic views over the bay to Sleeping Giant Provincial Park and VeraJohn casino, this large and charming hotel abounds with true northern hospitality.

Prince Arthur’s Landing & Marina Park with its children’s splash park, playgrounds, sailing tours, lakeshore promenades, festivals and restaurants are less than 5 minutes away by foot.

The eclectic downtown Waterfront District is also steps away from the hotel. Here you’ll find independent boutiques selling clothing, antiques and jewellery, as well as world-class restaurants, cafés and bars.

All of our rooms feature classic contemporary décor and free Wi-Fi. It’s well worth upgrading to one of the lakeview rooms, many of which include suites with jacuzzi tubs, overlooking Thunder Bay’s waterfront and marina.

Our onsite dining room; Portside, specializes in classic steak and seafood dishes for dinner, while the Lounge Bar serves pub food and light bites, including afternoon tea.

We also provide classic catering and events services. With over 10,000 square feet of banquet space, we are an irresistible venue for your next conference or special occasion.

Birth of the Remembrance Poppy

The iconic red Remembrance Day poppy worn on lapels originates from our historic Thunder Bay hotel. In 1921, the first meeting of the Great War Veterans Association of Canada (a predecessor of the Legion) was held at our very own Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel. We often get visited by veterans' groups from Wisconsin and Minnesota who pose for pictures in front of our historic plaque.


Prince Arthur & The Connaught Crest

The Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel is granted special permission for the use of the Connaught crest, a British Lion above a ducal coronet. The coat of arms, incorporated with the Canadian Northern Railway monogram, appeared on all of the hotel’s chairs, china and many other furnishings. Prince Arthur, the Duke of Connaught visits the hotel in 1912 shortly after being appointed Canada’s Governor General.
