Hotels in Vieux-Montréal (Old Montreal)

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

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 era of the minimalist design hotel may be drawing to a close, but this surprisingly affordable hotel shows no signs of losing its edge.

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.

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.
