It hardly gets more central than this: you’re in the same building as Montreal’s main rail station, connecting the city to the airport, Toronto and further afield. Yet Hotel Bonaventure feels miles away from the commuter rush, with a lobby set off by contemporary loungers and floor-to-ceiling windows that let the sunshine pour in. Guest rooms are smartly dressed in creamy or slate hues, but the highlight? A rooftop pool, where you can swim until late, gazing across to the shimmer of Montreal’s high-rises.

Now from $134 per night
Hotel Le Cantlie Suites is perfectly placed for two things: shopping and nightlife. Head out from your crisp-white and polished-wood room to take in the stores lining Sainte-Catherine Street or the buzzy bars of Crescent Street. A rooftop pool, open in warmer months, gives you top-notch views of the Montreal skyline, while a fitness center lets you work off the calories gained from heaps of poutine (cheese curds, fries and gravy).

If what you’re seeking is a Montreal stay with a slick vibe – the kind of place you can party as well as unwind – then the W is a no-brainer. During the day you can work in the Living Room, sipping coffees until cocktail hour comes round. On warm evenings, drain sangrias or mai tais on the terrace, then bed down in rooms dressed in clean whites with pops of flashy gold and black. You’re just a short walk from the central station, so the sights are at your fingertips, too.

    It might not be quite as extravagant as the French palace that inspired its name, but Montreal’s Chateau Versailles still has plenty to recommend it. At the base of Mount Royal Park, moments from the Museum of Fine Arts, this historic, stone-fronted building has both presence and intimacy. Enter to a roaring fire, and sink into a comfy armchair; fall asleep under molded ceilings and grand chandeliers. Extra perks include an exercise room, sauna and a traditional afternoon tea.

    Le Mount Stephen is set in an opulent 1880 building that was once home to an exclusive members club. These days, it feels just as fancy, with an atmospheric cocktail bar and a spa menu offering anti-aging facials and energizing massages. Rooms are elegant yet classic, with underlit beds and, in suites, double-decker lounge areas. Book in for weekend brunch of pain perdu or caviar-topped crumpets in the wood-lined dining room.

    The exterior is eye-catching: splashes of dramatic rainbow, more than half a dozen stories high. Inside, things are a bit more subdued, but just as contemporary, with round beds and hanging pod chairs. Other ways Le Germain will get your attention? Dinners of beef tartare in the restaurant; a 24-hour fitness center overlooking the city; flexible checkout so you can build a stay that suits you. The location, near McGill University and bustling Sainte-Catherine Street, is also ideal.
