You couldn’t ask for a more scenic part of Montreal for a hotel to be located in.
Overview Outside are the pretty cobbled streets of Old Montreal, lined with cosy bars, restaurants and independent galleries, while just a few steps away is the epic Notre-Dame Basilica.
The hotel itself, with its soft lighting, polished woods and smattering of heavy leather chairs, has an old-world European kind of glamour, but still pulls off a relaxed atmosphere.
In fact this is exactly the kind of warmly luxurious place you’d want to be holed up in when it’s snowing heavily outside – which of course during the winter in Canada is extremely likely.
Wow factor Almost all of the rooms come with their own faux log fire – the pretend flames flickering through the evening create a real atmosphere.
If you can stop yourself sinking onto the huge soft sofa and uncorking a bottle of red wine every time you come back in the evening then you’re extremely strong-willed (and missing out).
Rooms Absolutely huge, and equipped with all the mod-cons, from a fancy Nespresso machine to a dock for your iPhone.
Ask for a room with windows facing onto the streets to get a view of the city with a fresh blanket of snow first thing in the morning in the cold months.
Bill, please Doubles from £134pn.
