If your days in Montréal will be filled with history, culture, and local flavour (and they will!), then why not treat yourself to accommodation that gives you all these things too? Trust us, it is possible to have quality and comfort, along with a generous helping of charm. Here are eight independent gems that feel like they’re an organic extension of our stylish city:

Auberge Le jardin d'Antoine

A gem in Montréal’s collection of small hotels, Auberge Le jardin d’Antoine is just a few minutes’ walk from Place des Festivals, theatres, bars, restaurants, and transport. There’s no shortage of personality to the rooms (divided into four price categories, from suite to budget), with everything from exposed brick walls to carved wooden bedposts.
