Boutique hotel concept:
The concept of a boutique hotel appears in the 1980s’ in the United States. The aim was to find a response to the larger hotel chains standardization. This distinctiveness was based on location, the size, the architecture and design, the history of the hotel and the development of ultra-personalized services.
Boutique hotels appeared in Old Montreal in the early 2000s’. Le St-Sulpice hotel Montreal, built in 2001, belongs to the first boutique hotel wave and gathers all the characteristics of a boutique hotel.
Ideally located in the heart of Old Montreal, steps away from the Basilica Notre-Dame, one of the most historic attractions of Old Montreal. Old Montreal is the most touristic, historic and cultural area of Montreal: with its numerous museums, historic buildings with their unique French colonial style, boutiques and art galleries, bars and award- winning restaurants and all the touristic attractions of the Old Port…You will be in the heart of the action!

This boutique hotel was built on the historic foundation of Charles Le Moyne and Jacques Le Ber’s house, both were famous fur traders in the 17th century. The site became in the early 19th the head office of the Consolidated Plate Glass of Canada Ltd and later on a parking. The first stone of le Saint-Sulpice hotel was laid on March 2001.
To notice, the hotel offers a great view on the discrete but famous garden of the St-Sulpice Seminary, occupied by the Sulpicians since 1685. This seminary and the St-Sulpice religious community are linked to the evangelization and Christian movement coming from France in the 17th century. And more specifically though the missionary M. Jean-Jacques Olier who wanted to settle a colony in Ville-Marie (Montreal) in 1642 and to evangelize the Native American.
With 108 elegant and spacious suites the hotel welcomes you in a warm, cozy atmosphere and invites you to feel at home. The U-shape building opens on the hotel’s courtyard garden and creates a lovely and friendly environment.
The attentive staff, some of whom have worked for the hotel since its opening, welcomes you warmly and offers an ultra-personalized service. Many of our guests appreciate our staff loyalty: they always welcome with a smile and they will be able to anticipate your needs, by knowing your habits and preferences.
Its design :
With its European touch, the architecture of le Saint-Sulpice Hotel Montreal respects the spirit of the French colonial style of Old Montreal. The simple stone facade doesn’t reveal all of about the warm and friendly atmosphere you will experience once you enter our boutique hotel.
The cozy lobby with its warm and gold colors invites you to relax on the couch in front of the fireplace. Follow the hall of caramel leather columns and discover the modern and glass space of the Sinclair restaurant.
As the hotel was built on a parking lot, the architects of Béïque, Thuot, Legault could have all liberty and the space to draw the plans of the 108 different suites.
The classical and cozy style of our suites is reflected in the woodwork you can find on the walls and kitchenettes. Year after year, the designers added contemporary touches like the arabesque figures in the black and white carpet, the red in the bed covers or in the artworks, or the modern design of the glass coffee tables and the lights.
