Montreal, Canada is one of my favorite cities to visit. With excellent food, a charming old town, and plenty to do (even in winter!) Montreal is always a good idea! Wondering where to stay in Montreal? This post will cover the nine best places to stay in Montreal Canada.
Since It would be difficult for one person to stay in all these locations, the Montreal accommodations recommended below are a combination of places I’ve stayed, my trusted friends have stayed, or I’ve considered staying based on my research. I’ll never recommend any places I wouldn’t personally book.
Map of the Best Places to Stay in Montreal, Canada
Sonder Apartments, Richmond Ave.
Highlights: Full-sized apartment with kitchen, excellent customer support, long-term stays available, several locations around Montreal. Read Sonder Reviews Here!
We stayed in the Sonder Apartments in Griffintown for several weeks and loved it! Seriously, if I could pack this apartment up and travel with it, I would. Sonder apartments are a great choice if you want a beautifully designed, spacious, full-sized apartment during your stay in Montreal.
Even better, there are several sonder locations in Montreal with high-quality service. We stayed at the Sonder in Griffintown but there are also locations in Quartier des Spectacles, The Village, and other desirable neighborhoods.
Since you get a full apartment instead of just a room, you can expect a full living room with a pull out couch, kitchen, eating area, bedroom, and bathroom. Our unit even had a washing machine. The Griffintown building was still under construction when we were there but they had a gym and had an excellent reception area in a modern building.
Courtyard Marriott Downtown Montreal
