As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the city, Old Montreal is home to many highly rated hotels—many of which combine luxury with the district’s sophisticated historic vibe. Prices can climb quite high during the warmer months, however, so keep that in mind if you plan to make this area your base during your visit. Here’s a list of some of the best hotels in Old Montreal that will give you value for money.
Le Petit Hôtel & Café is a romantic boutique hotel with historic charm in the heart of Old Montreal. Housed in a 19th-century structure and located close to the district’s fine dining and brunch spots, rooftop bars, shops, and more, it is slightly removed from the bustling tourist areas. The décor is contemporary with a European flair. Amenities include free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast.
Auberge du Vieux-Port is another upscale, historic spot in Old Montreal, housing 45 rooms and Taverne Gaspar, a gastro-pub located in the cellar. The Auberge is the city’s only hotel located along the Saint Lawrence River—and you can enjoy exclusive views from the rooftop terrace or one of the 15 rooms that face the waterfront. Amenities include deep soaker tubs, Jacuzzis®, jetted showers, Wi-Fi, and a 24-hour beverage bar in the lobby. There are also loft suites, which are located a short walk from the hotel and are great for longer stays—they feature kitchenettes and offer more privacy away from the hotel.
Hotel Gault lies on a quiet street in Old Montreal. The rooms are classy, and in addition to the regular comforts, you’ll find modern showers, heated bathroom floors, and balconies for some rooms. Although the hotel is slightly off the beaten track, it’s within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, significant sites, the Metro, and the Old Port.
Le St-Sulpice is beautifully situated in the Old Port, offering comfortable and spacious suites that include kitchenettes, so it’s a great option for a longer stay in the city. The hotel is a stone’s throw away from the best sights, shops, and dining experiences in the district, with access to Chinatown and the downtown festival zone. The hotel is also a certified member of the “Pets Can Stay” program so that you can bring your pooch along.
Hôtel Nelligan is an Old Montreal mainstay combining rustic charm with elegance. There are two on-site restaurants: choose from contemporary French cuisine at Verses Bistro or steak and seafood with craft cocktails at Méchant Boeuf Bar-Brasserie. There is a 24-hour fitness center, in-room spa services, car services, and meeting rooms—for when you’re traveling for business.
Some of the luxuries that you’ll encounter at the elegant Hôtel Bonaparte are the acclaimed in-house French restaurant, free breakfast, and Jacuzzi® suites. You can explore all of the romantic Old Montreal district on foot from the hotel, from the Clock Tower to the Basilica de Notre-Dame, Place Jacques Cartier and Bonsecours Market.
Hôtel Place d’Armes has great balconies, Jacuzzis®, and an on-site spa. The hotel is connected to Montreal’s Underground City, which offers guests direct access to countless shops and eateries. Also within walking distance are the nightlife and restaurant hubs along Boulevard St. Laurent, as well as the river’s waterfront and the main attractions of Old Montreal. There is also an award-winning in-house restaurant that offers Quebec cuisine, a nightclub, and a rooftop terrace.
The SpringHill Suites by Marriott is a popular hotel in the Old Montreal district and offers free Wi-Fi and a hot breakfast buffet.
