Hôtel Nelligan
106 Rue Saint-Paul Ouest, Old Montreal
Just minutes from the Basilique Notre-Dame, on a quiet stretch of Rue Saint Paul, Hôtel Nelligan makes a great home base for those looking to hit the pavement and explore everything Old Montreal has to offer. Each of the 105 no-frills rooms strike a balance between modern and character-filled (we like the century-old brickwork and cherry wood furnishings), and are equipped with all the necessary conveniences: free WiFi, air-conditioned rooms, and a mini bar. And we've heard good things about the on-point concierge should you require some extra guidance while you're in town.

Hôtel William Gray
421 Rue Saint-Vincent, Old Montreal
A delightful mix of old and new, Hôtel William Gray opened in Montreal's old quarter in 2016. At 127 rooms strong and occupying two historic townhouses, plus an eight-story glass tower, the overall vibe expertly plays up the juxtaposition. (See rich leathers mixed with raw concrete.) A newly opened (seasonal) outdoor pool is a big hit on the second floor. Downstairs, Off the Hook, a local boutique with a cult following is stocked with everything from exclusive Vans collaborations to wool baseball caps by Polar Skate and Arc'teryx base layers, as well as their own line of streetwear-inspired tees and beanies. The in-house restaurant, Maggie Oakes, named after the wife of Montreal's first sheriff, serves up a solid charcuterie board, grilled seasonal veggies, and for heartier appetites, dry-aged Canadian rib eye.
