Thinking of heading up to the beautiful, bilingual, Paris of North America?

Your experience in Montreal is dependent on where you stay.  Not just the hotel, but the location in the city. The last time I visited, I stayed at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth, before its new renovation, and was left with a sort of “eh” feeling on the city. See, if you’re staying around there, the city feels mildly European, but nothing like being immersed in Old Town. Old town is right off the water with cafes, cobbled streets, and an aire of old Europe. That’s the reason most people venture to Montreal, and it was the feeling we missed when we visited in 2015. That’s where Le St Sulpice Hotel Montreal comes in. You could not find a better location for your stay.

One of the Main Attractions in Montreal is Notre Dame Basilica. Le Saint Sulpice Montreal is literally next door.

The Exterior

There is a sliver of a building in between Le St Sulpice and Notre-Dame that is currently under construction, so temporarily it’s a bit hectic, but otherwise it’s perfectly located on a very charming and main street.

Check In

A small, charming, and well decorated lobby that is fitting for this boutique hotel. The hotel is also Dog friendly with no additional charge for your pet, just a cleaning fee upon check out.

The Room:

The space is incredible; however, the bathroom is showing its age a bit, and the weirdest part is the overall setup. The bedroom is partitioned off in the middle of the suite with a double bed. The bar also had plates, bowls, utensils, etc. For a large suite in a swanky hotel, a double bed is quite the let down. Our room overlooked the courtyard where you could you also dine.

Personally, the “style” of the room isn’t my preference, but Miles loved it. He felt like he was back on safari and loved hanging out the window. What a weirdo.

I had a picture of the tub/shower, and I apologize, it’s just not worth publishing. It wasn’t dirty or anything like that, it’s just looking a bit dated.

Gym and Spa.

Not located on premise, but they have negotiated deals with offsite establishments. These images are courtesy of the hotel.

Is this not the cutest work center you’ve ever seen?

Dining and common spaces

The hotel was very full and events were held in the restaurant two of the three nights we were there. Plus, there are so many open air spots in the area we wanted to venture out and discover. Nevertheless, they had an affordable prix fixe menu and I thought the feel was very inviting.

I’d come back here in a heartbeat.

The staff was extremely welcoming, it’s dog friendly, well appointed, large rooms, and the location is prime. I would try and get a room with a bigger bed though. I mean just look what’s a few steps out your door!
