Step into this late-19th-century hotel and you’ll wonder if you’ve been transported to one of Montreal’s top art galleries. The walls are adorned with 250 original works by pop and postwar masters, and each guestroom is individually decorated in honor of a famous artist, like Lichtenstein, Chagall and Warhol. Georges Marciano, co-founder of Guess jeans, bought and renovated the hotel in 2010 expressly to display his priceless collection — the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has even come calling to borrow some of the pieces. As you might expect, the hotel’s design is bold and eclectic, just like the city’s vivid cultural scene. It opens onto what was once known as Canada’s Wall Street, and it’s close to the must-see sights, galleries, museums and cobbled streets of the Old Port. If what you want is pampering, however, the staff can arrange an in-room massage or a trip to Bota Bota, a stylish luxury spa anchored in the St. Lawrence River. When visitors get back after a long day, the best perch is the neon-lit Botero Wine Bar, which offers expertly crafted martinis as well as top vintages.
In the Area
Visit the Notre Dame Basilica (a tour of the old and new chapels is a great introduction to Montreal’s history) and Place Jacques-Cartier, where you’ll find street performers, world class dining and galleries galore; an alfresco stop for a glass of a local craft beer and some people watching is a must. Within a mile of the hotel you’ll find the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Place des Arts, the Montreal symphony, Rue. Ste. Catherine’s shopping and the Underground City, a network connecting 1,700 shops, department stores and even Canada’s government-run liquor stores (it also provides needed respite from the city’s bitter winter chill). Whether above or below ground, the area is best explored on foot, and no matter how far you wander in Old Montreal you’ll be able to take in the French- and British-influenced architecture of what is one of the oldest neighborhoods on the continent.
How to Get There
Booked two rooms, one for us, one for family. We had stayed @ L’Hotel before - first time for family. It never disappoints. Location is perfect, rooms outstanding and service impeccable. What more can I say?
very well priced, very nice-to-elegant hotel located in an ideal spot in the old city district of Montreal. Many historical & artistic sites/options in the immediate neighborhood; most things are in easy walking distance. Very comfortable, spacious, high-ceilinged rooms. Lots of pop art throughout the hotel.
Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel strongly.
I dont often give hotel reviews since so often they are boring and the same dull ambience. I was at a conference at the westin. It was full and landed here by accident. First the price was better. Second the accommodations were nice and staff helpful. It took about a day to recognize the artwork on the wall were not prints but the real thing. Miro, Stella, Hirsch, Leichenstein..it was a pure pleasure. In fact on Friday i sent to the Beaux Arts museum. It was nice but i really like the art work here. Would come back. Plus so convenient to old town, conference center and great restaurants.
Very friendly staff at reception and concierge, artistic hotel with many paintings in lobby and room, good location close to the Old Port area, clean room with massaging shower facilities, and healthy breakfast food.
I came to Montreal to visit my granddaugter and stayed até Lhotel a couple of nights. This is an experisnce of a life time. All the paintings and sculptures are original . Robert Indiana and Botero right on the front. Andy Warhol on the lobby. The bed was brand new and the sheets crispy. Very clean and confprtable Room. My breakfast was included on the rate and its was fantastic . I wll for sure return. I foud a better deal when I was comparing prices after I called the Hotel directly, the receptionist offered me a better rate.
