Great location!
Reviewed 4 days ago

This hotel is very centrally located. Within easy walking distance of the sites, the beautiful waterfront and many, many fabulous restaurants. We stayed here for a long weekend during single digit temperatures and found it easy to walk wherever we wanted to go. There is valet parking but we found that we did not need to use it for the entire stay. The overall property is beautiful and clean as was the room. THE KING SIZED BED WAS HEAVENLY!! Overall a wonderful and restful stay.

We have been fortunate to stay in the finest hotels in the world, The Nelligan makes our list as such. All aspects of the hotel are lovely and welcoming but especially the staff. Special salute to Dimitar Concierge 'extraordinaire.'

Incredible location in the heart of Vieux-Montréal

The Nelligan is a charming boutique hotel in Old Montreal. My husband and I have stayed there several times and will continue to return. The breakfast is delicious, the street its located in is lively and full of restaurants and shops and within walking distance to the metro and the hotel is elegant and comfortable. Highly recommend!

A great hotel

We’ve made the Nelligan our home away from home. The front desk staff are wonderful to deal with, they greet you like long-lost friends, they’re efficient and attentive, always greeting with a smile and doing their best to accommodate your idiosyncrasies, we’re always put in room 331, a petite suite, our favorite. The rooms are spacious, well cared for, and warm and comfortable in a welcome-home type of way. The bathroom is large, well-stocked with high-end toiletries, and everything works, always a plus.
The hotel was obviously carved out from Old Montreal buildings, lots of exposed brick, high ceilings, and just a warm delightful feeling, and its location in Old Montreal could easily lead one to think they were stepping out to a Paris night or day.
The restaurants in the hotel are both very good and you can walk through the hotel to the bar in Méchant Boeuf, the best eating bar in Montreal.
Really, what more could one ask for?

a lovely stay in a luxurious space

I am a frequent traveler to Montreal. I have always enjoyed the sophistication of Sofitel but now have a new favorite. The in house bar and attached restaurant were lovely and the staff was attentive. I will return often.
