Hôtel Nelligan
106 Rue Saint-Paul W., 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 strikes a balance between modern and character-filled (we like the century-old brickwork and cherrywood furnishings) and is equipped with all the necessary conveniences: free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, 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. It's 127 rooms strong and occupies two historic townhouses plus an eight-story glass tower, with an overall vibe expertly plays up the juxtaposition. (Think 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 its own line of streetwear-inspired tees and beanies. The hotel's 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.

Industrial Two-Bedroom Loft
exact address upon booking, Old Montreal
A collaboration between stylist Annie Horth and Nathalie Bouchard, Creative Flats is network of lofts (available for both short- and long-term stays) in Old Montreal. This one is two blocks north of Notre-Dome, meaning you're within striking distance of some of the neighborhood’s best shops and cafés. The penthouse apartment is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows and features an open layout, so there’s plenty of space to spread out, making it a great option for a small family or couples traveling together. We’re especially partial to the design details here, like polished cement floors, high ceilings, vintage decorative objects mixed with mid-century modern furniture, and an open kitchen. Creative Flats has other lofts available for rent throughout the city, plus a particularly dreamy country house in the Eastern Townships.
