Lined with cobblestone streets and charming boutiques, Old Montreal is one of the most interesting and romantic parts of the city.
The well-preserved Old Montreal neighborhood might be one of the prettiest and most fascinating quarters of the city. While summers give way to lively street festivals and restaurant terraces brimming with energy, winters offer a much mellower and relaxed pace.
By simply wandering around the cobblestone streets, visitors will stumble upon something interesting, beautiful, or delicious (or all three!). While there are plenty of restaurants to choose from, visitors should beware of tourist traps offering low-quality food at outrageous prices.
This 105-room historic boutique captures the charm of Old Montreal, with attractive details like fireplaces, wrought-iron railings, and exposed brick walls. It offers multiple eateries, including the popular summertime Nelligan Terrace, situated on the hotel's roof, and a charming bar/art exhibit in the hotel's atrium. The fitness center is 24-hour, but the hotel doesn't have a pool or full-service spa (just a "massage room" attached to the gym). Its obvious strengths are its historic, European elegance and its location in the heart of Old Montreal.
