Griffintown is an increasingly buzzy neighborhood, known for its contemporary art scene and characterized by converted warehouses and condo developments. Located in the southwestern part of the city, Griffintown is bordered on one side by the Lachine Canal and blends into the downtown area on the other. As you’re planning your trip to the city, here are some of the best hotels in and around Griffintown, Montreal – now bookable on Culture Trip.
Hotel ALT Montreal is a trendy, boutique choice for your stay in Griffintown. You’ll find spacious rooms that are decorated with contemporary art, colorful accents, and exposed concrete. Here, you’ll be a stone’s throw from Old Montreal, downtown, and the Lachine Canal. There is an on-site rooftop cocktail bar, 7th Heaven, that is best enjoyed during the warmer months. Additionally, one of the great things about the ALT hotel chain is that there is no fixed check-out time, so you can sleep in as late as you want.
L’Hotel Particulier Griffintown operates as a B&B, offering garden views for up to 16 guests. Conveniently located between the Underground City and Old Montreal, this accommodation features just eight rooms. Breakfast comes from the nearby bakery La Bête à Pain and it can be served as a typical continental breakfast or delivered straight to your room. There’s also a public art gallery associated with the hotel; it showcases Canadian contemporary artwork. All units at L’Hotel Particulier are fitted with a flat-screen TV.
Little Burgundy / La Petite Bourgogne
Located just west of Griffintown in the Little Burgundy neighborhood of Montreal – also often referred to by the French La Petite Bourgogne – Hotel Bon Soleil offers convenient access to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, in addition to a number of nearby bars and restaurants. Take note that despite the name, it is more of a hostel and thus features shared bathrooms and a kitchen area. If you’re looking for a simple, cheap place to stay, this is a good option. Free Wi-Fi is available.
Repos and Manna is a B&B located in Little Burgundy and offers five comfortable rooms in a modern townhouse setting. There is free Wi-Fi, a family room, and cooked or light breakfast options included in the price of your stay. The guest kitchen also provides mini-fridges and a microwave, and there’s even an outdoor hot tub. If you check-in directly through their website between May and October, you can receive a complimentary bottle of red or white wine at check-in.
Located in downtown Montreal, close to Griffintown, Auberge Les Bons Matins offers a European-style B&B in the setting of three historic Victorian townhouses. There is a range of rooms and suites available, as well as separate sitting areas and living rooms. There are 10 wood-burning fireplaces throughout the inn, and some of the suites have kitchenettes. Most rooms and all of the suites feature whirlpool tubs. You can choose to have breakfast delivered to your room, or in a communal dining room.
The Marriott stands downtown, which means that it’s close to Old Montreal, Griffintown, and all of the shopping, event locations, and attractions that characterize these districts. The rooms have a comfortable, classic feel, and the hotel offers an in-house restaurant as well as some shops, a spa and a gym. Conveniently, the hotel also provides direct access to the Montreal metro system. You can take an elevator right down into Bonaventure station, so the whole city is right at your doorstep.
