Hotels in Montreal
Compared with other major North American cities, hotels in Montreal are quite reasonably priced and cater to a wide range of tastes and budges. You’ll find a healthy menu of hotel options when you visit Montreal, ranging from French and Victorian-style inns to trendy boutique hotels in the heart of the hipster Plateau, upscale accommodations and reliable chains scattered throughout downtown and Old Montreal.
Some of our favorite hotels in Montreal include Le St. James, a luxurious landmark hotel located in the heart of Old Montreal, moments away from attractions like the World Trade Center, the Notre Dame Basilica and the Old Port and boasting five-star amenities like a full-service spa, an upscale on-site restaurant and a library; The Ritz Carlton, equally glitzy and located in downtown Montreal, steps away from a number of galleries and boutiques, shopping centers and nightlife attractions; the Hotel Pierre du Calvet, a charming family mansion in Old Montreal boasting Old World luxury (antique furnishings; mahogany canopy beds) and New World amenities; and the Hotel Nelligan, an Old Montreal hotel lodged in two restored buildings and featuring some of the structure’s original architectural details, like exposed brick and stone.

Housed in two buildings, including an old leather factory from the 19th century, the 24-room hotel appeals to young entrepreneurs with its tech-savvy touches like free Wi-Fi and plasma TV’s outfitted with Wii Fit stations.
Hôtel Le Germain is a testament to its French-Canadian province with original art, locally made furniture, and bedding by Quebec fashion designer Marie Saint Pierre. The rooms, renovated in 2009, have large windows providing natural light and city views.
The hotel consists of a 22-story tower and the former headquarters of the city’s Gazette newspaper.
A five-story building dating back to 1886, Auberge Bonaparte has dormer windows, solid oak doors, and original stone, including a frontispiece made for the first resident, Judge Joseph-Amable Berthelot.

The too-cool faux-hawked staffers at this über-chic boutique hotel might be off-putting if the rooms weren’t so stylish and comfortable. Playful fabrics—suede headboards, cowhide chairs, faux-fur throws—brighten the dark walnut floors and cool, white walls.
Located at the intersection of Rue Sherbrooke and Boulevard Saint-Laurent—equidistant from downtown and the Plateau—this property should have been a slam-dunk when it opened in 2004 as the design-driven Hotel Godin.
