Auberge du Vieux-Port
Modern luxe meets old world charm at this upscale inn located right on the waterfront.
Surround the senses with winding cobblestone streets, the click-clacking of horses and horns blowing from the boats docking at the bay. It’s all part of Montréal’s Vieux-Port experience that includes craft shops, an Imax theatre and a human labyrinth. The hotel boasts breathtaking accommodations within walking distance of charming French restaurants and beautiful art galleries. The Hector Lamontagne Heritage Building in which it is housed dates back to 1882. It was first a depot, then a warehouse and a grocery store. The space became a leather factory for over 100 years until the family decided to close its doors in 1989. There are 27 rooms with high-speed Internet access, 24-hour concierge service and complimentary newspaper. The real draw here is the rooftop terrace with spectacular views of the St. Lawrence River and Vieux-Port, a perfect place to share a glass of red with a loved one or friends. Guests enjoy a daily wine cocktail with cheese canapés between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. The hotel also offers 17 apartments with all of the comforts of home for longer stays.
