Where on the St. Denis in Montreal is the best area to stay in?

I have been reading about all of the neighborhoods in Montreal for a place to stay. The area in the northern end of St. Denis is described as being especially quaint and interesting. The Anne Ma Soeur Anne is located on St. Denis near the Rue Rachel Est. and seems to be in the center of this area. The Chateau de L’Argoat is located on Rue Sherbrook, further south off St. Denis. Which area or hotel would you recommend?

definitely the northern part of st denis is nicer, imo.
It's an interesting part of the city, I would call it edgy and urban as opposed to quaint, I guess it depends what you call quaint.

Old Montreal for me is quaint.

My new favorite restaurant is on St Viateur street,
called les 2 Singes de Montarvie; don't have the # on hand but it turns up on a google search.

I agree that the location near Rue Rachel would be more interesting. If you go to the restaurant on St. Viateur you should also be sure to pick up some bagels at the bakery on that street, #1127. It is open 24/7

We stayed at Anne Ma Soeur Anne and loved the location on St. Denis. Lots of restaurants, cafes, boutiques. The Anne Ma Soeur has private balconies that are great to enjoy a glass of wine - several liquor boutiques close by (there was one across the st). At most of the restaurants you can purchase your wine and take into the restaurant. We had a great greek meal close by - maybe two blocks.

The walk to Old Montreal is about 15-20 minutes.

Not sure about the subway. We simply parked our car ($5/day) and walked. I am sure if you contact the hotel they can tell you its proximity. The subway runs along St. Catherines St and that is only a few minutes away.

You will be convenient to the Metro between the Mt royal and Sherbrooke subway stops. You can buy tourist tickets to the public transit system or get strips with six tickets at a reduced rate.
