Hotels in Montreal

After a day of shopping in the frosty air, check into this hotel with a heated outdoor pool.

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.

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.

Set among the 19th-century warehouses that line the riverside Rue de la Commune, this 27-room inn could pull in guests for its address alone.

Montreal’s reputation as a city of style is getting another boost with the newly minted W Montreal. Housed in a formerly lackluster bank building on the border of historic Old Montreal, the hotel is a haven of singular design.

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.

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.

The hotel consists of a 22-story tower and the former headquarters of the city’s Gazette newspaper.

Family-friendly hotel in the heart of downtown, and only one hour away from ski resorts and 20 minutes from golf.


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.

105-room hotel with warm interiors (dark-wood furniture; fireplaces), carved out of three 19th-century warehouses in Old Montreal. 

Stepping into the St-James feels like stepping back into a genteel, Gilded Age manse.

Consisting of three combined 19th-century office towers, the hotel features boutique-style rooms that mix historic details from the buildings’ past (soaring columns, exposed bricks, arched windows) with sleek, contemporary interiors.

Thick stonewalls, a Breton façade, and iron shutters hint at the heritage of La Maison Pierre du Calvet, built in 1725. Located on a cobble stone street in Old Montreal, the hotel has a library for guests, plus an outdoor garden terrace and indoor greenhouse with parrots.
