The City of Saints’ original boutique hotel, near top shopping and the bustling downtown
This chic 101-room boutique remains one of Montreal’s most cherished stays because of its intimate vibe, attention to detail and staffs’ passion for sharing the city’s best with guests. Loft-like digs radiate Zen vibes, with furniture designed and crafted in Quebec and dark woods set against earthy creams, silvers and whites. The requisite technology is all here too: flat-screen TVs, iPod/iPhone docks and wide working desks with plenty of outlets. Glass-enclosed showers provide a bit of a tease, but keep it classy with a shower shade if you’re so inclined. On-site restaurant Laurie Raphaël Montréal is the sibling of the same-named Quebec City mainstay, but it more than holds its own with wonderfully authentic Quebecois fair served in a seventh-floor dining room with sparkling city views.
In the Area
Take a stroll down Rue Ste-Catherine, right outside the hotel’s door, to shop in Montreal’s most stylish luxury boutiques. Take in a concert amidst archangels and apostles in Bourgie Hall, a 107-year-old church that opened as a performance space in October 2012. Then move on to dinner at Martin Picard’s cult eatery Au Pied De Cochon (“the pigs foot”), a carnivore favorite where even the French fries come topped with foie gras. The century-old Parc La Fontaine is rife with bike trails, jogging paths and ski and snowshoe routes in winter. Waterfalls, fountains, playing fields, tennis courts and an open-air theater are sprinkled throughout.
