This the most amazing, historic hotel. Built in 1725, Benjamin Franklin stayed in this house for 10 days in 1775, during his failed attempt to entice the Canadians to join the American Revolution. Today, the combination of three houses and a warehouse a few hundred feet from the St. Lawrence River in Old Montreal make up this incredible 9-room family-run, boutique hotel with very large rooms (ours had a fireplace) and top-rated restaurant. Decorated with antiques, majestic four-poster beds, leather couches and Oriental rugs throughout, it's a treasure. The atrium houses the owners' parrots and doves, and the open-air terrace surrounded by 40-foot tall rock walls provide a lovely place for the free continental breakfast or sipping wine in the evenings. Everywhere you look, there is something of interest, from photos, paintings and furnishing to books. One of the owners sculpts in bronze, so be sure to visit his "gallery" behind the restaurant. The three third-floor rooms have access to a shared terrace that overlooks the rooftop and downstairs terrace. The staff, from the housekeeper to the bartender, chefs, waiters, front desk staff and owners, are friendly and fun to visit with. You can tell they enjoy working there. Breakfast is simple, but delicious and filling: a carafe of coffee (or tea), a pitcher of fresh orange juice, a bowl of diced fruit, toast and fresh baked muffins all served to you in the formal dining room or on the terrace. Because it's in the old part of the city, it's easy to walk to many of the museums, historical churches and sites, restaurants, gift shops and galleries as well as the Old Port, China Town and the Latin Quarter. It's about a 10-minute walk to the closest Metro station, which will take you to the Botanical Gardens, Olympic Park, Mont Royal, and a slew of other places. Would we stay here again? In a heartbeat. And, honestly, if you don't book a room here be sure to stop by and walk around...perhaps order a glass of wine? It's right across the street from the "Sailor's" Church and museum.

Room Tip: I'm sure all of the rooms are excellent. The three 3rd floor rooms have access to a shared terra...

The hotel is situated in old part of the town and is also very old by itself too. The decoration imitates the Louis the XVII era- and does it very well. The rooms are spacious with many details of the time. One must however take into notice that there is no elevator in the hotel. One funny detail is parrots close to reception and terrace. One or two of them can even speak. Very good and hospitable service, thou Wi-Fi was working only occasionally. The beakfast is also "French" meaning toast, jam, muffin, coffee AND a lovely bowl of fresh fruit salade. That was some bonus in fairly limited breafast. The hotel is worth visiting.

I walked past this place 5 years five years ago on my first trip to Montreal. I knew immediately that I would have to stay here next time I was in town and made a note of the name and location.
Fortunately, I had a conference in Montreal the past few days and the best decision I ever made was to stay here instead of the conference hotel. The service was amazing, the location idyllic, my room was to die for (I actually felt like a princess staying there), the restaurant was perfect. This place is the oldest b and b / chateau in Montreal, and is hands down the most unique lodging experience I have ever had in North America. My only disappointment was that my husband wasn't with me (I was there solo on business), as it's quite a romantic destination. In any case, I can't wait to go back!

If you are a fan of non chain, unique and character filled hotels, consider booking this hotel. Part restaurant, part charming Inn, this is a perfect place to enjoy a few days in the Old Town of Montreal. I had Room #10 and felt like a Prince. What a grand and memorable room.

Yes, the staff could have given more information on the area, yes, the room could have been cleaner, yes breakfast could have been better but try this for the ambiance and character.

Room Tip: Room 10 was lovely and very quiet despite a lot of foot traffic outside.

The hotel and the room left me speechless -- with incredible character and charm -- this is one 'house' that has aged well! Situated in Old Montréal, it is a prime location to wander to and from with ease. I cannot wait to return.

On a prime corner of Rue Bonsecours in Old Port Montreal is this gem property. The original home built in 1725. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful, kind and accommodating. We loved the feel of stepping back in time which included a gourmet selection of appetizers and main course in the on-site restaurant - Les Filles du Roy. They baked a small cake for my husband's birthday and had it waiting in our room when we returned from Cirque du Soleil which was a short walk away - less than 10 minutes! Wonderful nights sleep and lovely petite breakfast. Great coffee!!! We will stay here again!

Room Tip: The floors can be a bit squeaky (albeit well carpeted), so I'm glad we had the 3rd floor.

Its hard not to have a good time in the Old Port of Montreal, but the entire experience can be crowned off by staying in this very old, period piece, authentic hotel. The rooms are beautiful, filled with ornate furniture. They are also very comfortable, with windows that open, flat screened tv, fireplace, and modern bathrooms. The restaurant, and the lobby rooms are also lovely and the parrots are a hoot.
The location is prime with the old Seaman's Church across the street, as well as the Bonsecours Market. Lots of restaurants and art galleries to visit as well. The owners and staff are lovely - friendly and knowledgeable.
