We spent 3 nights beginning of Oct. at Auberge du Vieux-Port and upon our arrival we knew we chose the right place. They met our taxi and took our bags into this small hotel facing the St. Lawrence, then invited us to go down to their restaurant Ramparts (downstairs) to partake of their evening complimentary wine and cheese for guests (from 5-6 each evening). We needed this..after our long day of travel. While relaxing with our wine, our bags were taken to our room and we 'checked in' after our wine. The rooms (we started first night in a 'loft' room as we arrived on a Sat. and the hotel was full), then moved to the hotel for the next 2 nights. Both rooms were very nice, but the loft wasn't for us ... too many stairs and we like to be situated in the hotel to really enjoy the amenities more easily. The loft, however, would be great for a family as it had a small kitchen and a very large sitting/dining area. The breakfasts were very good -- small buffet of baked goods, fruit, juices, coffee, cereal, plus you can in addition order from the menu. Robes and slippers, stocked bar and old world style furnishings made the rooms/stay so pleasant. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We mainly dealt with David at check-in and when changing rooms....and he was very nice and helpful. They volunteered to make any reservations we wanted. We highly recommend this hotel and especially Old Montreal -- if you want a relaxing, romantic and charming experience - surrounded by good restaurants!! (Bonaparts, Pavarotti are a couple. Didn't get a chance to try Ramparts which is in this hotel). We did alot of walking downtown Monreal on St. Catherines and were glad we didn't choose a hotel there -- location to many restaurants good, but the noise.....rap music playing very loudly -- not for us!!
