Montréal is a multi-faceted city, and this diversity is reflected in the variety of accommodations options available, from sophisticated classic design to chic urban style to cozy Old World charm. Whatever experience you’re looking for, you’re sure to find the perfect hotel to suit your personality and make your getaway unforgettable.

The daring urban explorer 

The urban explorer is the one who can’t wait to see what the city has in store. You’ve barely arrived and you’re already itching to explore on foot or see the sites as you glide by on a BIXI. The gorgeous Hotel Monville is a great fit to set up your headquarters and is the starting point for an adventure that can never be too grandiose. Located at the crossroads of downtown and Old Montréal and with free indoor valet parking, adding a few extra day trips in and around the city during your stay is too enticing to pass up.

The chic style hunter

From the fashionable downtown shopping to the incredible array of home decor shops that dot Old Montréal and neighbouring Griffintown, the style hunter will gleefully find one prized possession after another as they cover the city. The Hotel Gault, a beautiful boutique hotel located in the heart of Old Montréal, with it’s 19th-century facade, contemporary decor, extraordinary amenities and friendly service, is your stylish home away from home.

The eclectic insider

The most eclectic of us love to find those offbeat, bohemian places that work because they are so different from anything else you’ve ever seen. Hotel Chez Swann, with its wild, outside-the-box decor is the place your friends wish they had found first but you’re the one with the eye for the unique. With French pastries and breakfast to get your day started right, there’s no end to the possibilities that lay ahead, whether they are planned out or your day leads off the beaten path.

The jetsetter

See and be seen, that’s the motto of the jetsetter. With more glitz and glam than you could ever imagine, the Ritz-Carlton Montréal is the hotel of choice for those on-the-go and in-the-know. An exquisite hotel in Montréal’s fabled Golden Square Mile, the Ritz offers a 5-star experience that includes a world famous restaurant that provides room service when those camera flashes become a little too much, a rejuvenating and relaxing spa and a rooftop pool that opens onto an enchanting view of downtown.

The superstar

When Hollywood comes to town, the cast and crew of many of the movies that are filmed in the city stay at the glamorous and luxurious Saint-Sulpice Hotel in Old Montréal. The superstar likes to be seen but enjoys a little anonymity when desired. The Saint-Sulpice features full-service suites that include kitchenettes, closed bedrooms and even electric fires and balconies in some of the suites making it a great choice for an extended stay. This wonderful hotel is perfect for those looking for a little peace and quiet after a long day of work or play and if you should choose to not use the kitchenette for an evening, the hotel’s restaurant, OsKar, is an upscale bistro serving some of the best locally inspired food.

The entertainment lover

From fabulous festivals and concerts to one-of-a-kind exhibits and attractions, Montréal offers a plethora of choices to the entertainment lovers who flock to the downtown core every year. The Doubletree by Hilton Montreal is a swanky hotel located in Quartier des spectacles, the epicenter of entertainment in the city and an excellent choice for those who want to be in the middle of the action. When you're not singing along to your favourite concerts and festivals, enjoy proximity to downtown shopping either outdoors or through the connection to the Underground City or explore an endless choice of inspired, world-class restaurants in Old Montréal.

The sophisticated traveller

A warm, regal welcome awaits those guests who like to keep coming back for more at the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel in the heart of downtown Montréal. Sophisticated and modern, this recently renovated hotel features an upscale bar, a superb cafe, an enchanting market featuring local and world-renowned products, a delightful restaurant and a terrasse with a spectacular view of the new promenade at Place Ville Marie and beyond.

The old-world aficionado

A European-inspired vacation awaits those with a flair for old-world wonder in charming Old Montréal. Located along one of the neighbourhood’s cobblestone streets, the Hotel Nelligan is magical any time of the year, but especially during the summer months when you can enjoy the view and a glass of wine from their gorgeous rooftop terrasse. The charming hotel is located in a fully restored, historic building and offers luxurious accommodations for travelers looking to feel like they’ve stepped out of North America and into the bustling streets of Europe. Each of the rooms, suites and penthouses in the hotel have been designed to bring out the details of centuries-old brickwork and architecture.

The planning perfectionist

While some like to plan every minute of their vacation, down to the minute, when in Montréal, you should always leave room for the unexpected.
