Price Range: $$$
Location: Old Montréal (Vieux-Montréal)
There's a cultivated air of refinement echoing through this ultraromantic hotel, a landmark on rue St-Paul named after Québec's most passionate poet, Émile Nelligan. The hotel, just a block south of the Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal, occupies two adjoining buildings from the 1850s, when thick stone and brick walls were common. Some suites have terraces with views of the river; others overlook the four-story, brick-walled atrium. All beds are king-size, and the bathrooms are big enough to park your car. At the pub-style bar, Méchant Bœuf, make sure to snag a table near the window overlooking rue St-Paul and watch the world hustle by. And for breakfast with a view of the Old City and the harbor, try the rooftop terrace. Pros: welcome cocktail included; Fodorites recommend the rooftop terrace and restaurant for great views of the Old City; lively bar right on rue St-Paul; huge bath tubs. Cons: weekend wedding traffic; valet parking is $28 plus tax. www.hotelnelligan.com. 105 rooms, 28 suites, 2 penthouses. In-room: a/c, safe, Internet, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bar, gym, parking.
