Hotel William Gray

Whether it’s from the magnificent rooftop terrace or from the uber-stylish rooms, Hotel William Gray boasts some of the best panoramas of the city you can get in Old Montreal.

It’s also one of the best spa hotels in Montreal, where you can enjoy some pampering after a long sightseeing day in the city.

Auberge du Vieux Port by Gray Collection

Much like French-founded New Orleans and Savannah, Montreal started from the river. The difference between the Canadian city from the US counterparts, though, is the fact that there are not many hotels by the banks in Quebec’s capital. Auberge du Vieux Port is a unique exception that also happens to be one of the top Old Montreal hotels. That means incredible St. Lawrence River views from the units, something of a treasure among the accommodation scene of the city. Also, you’ve got a beautiful interplay of modern and historic in design (the hotel is set in a 19th-century warehouse), impeccable service, and atmospheric Taverne Gaspar with French fare. 

Key Amenities:  

  • Rooftop Terrasse sur l’Auberge with panoramic views of the St. Lawrence River

  • Lobby bar with cocktails and wine

  • 24-hour concierge service and valet parking
