Fodor's Review

Three splendidly ornate Victorian commercial buildings were merged to create Old Montréal's largest boutique hotel, pleasing jet-setters and business execs alike with rooms that combine old-fashioned grandeur with sleek, modern furnishings. Some of the high-ceiling guest rooms feature exposed brick or stone walls, and the large bathrooms are tiled in black granite and white marble. A 2,000-square-foot spa includes the city's first hammam (Middle Eastern–style steam bath). For socializing, there's a rooftop bar and restaurant; a lobby brasserie; Suite 701, where the after-work crowd quaff martinis; and a clubby room with billiards and a huge flat-screen television. The Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal is just across the square, and the Palais des Congrès is nearby.
