LHOTEL

262 rue St-Jacques Ouest, Montréal, Québec, H2Y 1N1, Canada

Fashion mogul George Marciano, the man behind Guess? jeans, bought this opulent hotel in the financial district to double as a personal art gallery and guest house for his well-heeled friends (note the Ferraris parked outside). Marciano's collection of modern American art by Jim Dine, Frank Stella, and Jasper Johns lines the walls, beneath crystal chandeliers, 14-foot ceilings, HD televisions, and Second Empire moldings. Wood-paneled bedrooms feature vintage photos of movie stars, airy bathrooms, coffeemakers, and new carpets. Business guests appreciate the location in the middle of the financial district and a block from the city's convention center.
