Our Neighbourhood is Very Colourful

Your hotel shouldn't be simply where you stay while on vacation, it should add to the experience. Our rooms will do just that. The Murray Premises Hotel is as distinctive as the colourful city it calls home, and we'd love to be a part of your next St. John's trip.

There is so much to see and do in this city, the question is not what can I do today, but how can I fit it all in? One way to do it is to stay in a downtown hotel, right on the St. John's waterfront. As you step out into Murray Premises Hotel's courtyard and up the steps to Water Street, you might start your day shopping at our city's many boutique and specialty shops or by being pampered at a day spa. Maybe you'll take in a tour, by land or by sea, or spend the day travelling through history at one of our museums or historical sites. In the evening, enjoy a meal at one of the city's numerous notable restaurants or drinks and appetizers at a traditional Newfoundland pub. After dark, the city comes alive with entertainment, drinks, dancing and buskers on the world renowned George Street. Finish your day in one of Murray Premises Hotel's luxurious rooms and wake to a complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, a perfect start to another day's adventure in historic downtown St. John's.


No matter what you're craving, downtown St. John's is sure to have something to satisfy your appetite. You can dine in the Murray Premises building at the upscale The Gypsy Tea Room restaurant, which offers European & Mediterranean cuisine with specialization in seafood, pasta and risotto, and features an extensive collection of international wines. If you wish to explore, however, you can discover everything from traditional home cooked meals, pub-fare, five star dining or a glass of wine and tapas all nearby on Water Street, Duckworth Street and the nooks and crannies between.
