Gay Montreal Montreal City Guide

The charming, French-kissed cosmopolis of Montreal is unlike anywhere else in Canada, home to a welcoming bunch of people with a unique European heritage that colours everything from its architecture to its nightlife. Proud and progressive, Montreal’s population live vibrantly diverse lifestyles, whether in upscale tree-lined avenues or chaotic, neon-lit Chinatown alleys. Refusing to be contained, the rainbow-flag clad Gay Village spills out onto surrounding areas, livening up the historic district with shops, spas and delicious cuisine – from poutine to Portuguese chicken – reflecting the city’s position as a cultural melting pot of the world.

The best hotels in Montreal

Let’s kick off this gay Montreal travel guide with a roundup of the best hotels in Montreal. A great place to start is the Ritz-Carlton, reopened in 2015 with a fresh new look, yet with the classic elegance and service, one would expect from a Ritz-Carlton property. For that fun living room hangout vibe, the W Montreal is the trendy option. A solid option where you might run into some musical acts during concert season is Hotel Le Crystal, which happens to have an outstanding outdoor rooftop hot tub.

The Hotel Le St-James, though, is a tough one to beat. This landmark property with its avant-garde style has impeccably detailed guest accommodations, each room and suite possessing its own personal charm. Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel is another decadent option, only offering suites, which they describe as personal living spaces, decorated with the perfect mix of Old World and new, showcasing the beauty and character of Old Montreal, yet fitted and finished with amenities of today. And then there is Hotel William Gray, Mr Hudson’s choice for an upscale boutique. With only 127 rooms and suites, located in the centre of Old Montreal, this property was carefully designed to not only be aesthetically appealing but ultra-convenient for guests, with an upmarket grill restaurant, a rooftop bar, a lobby bar, café and even a high-end retailer. Additionally, the hotel offers a multi-functional Living Room with a library, pool table and music station, as well as a full-service spa with an outdoor pool and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.
