Alexandre Logan (1870), Montréal, Québec $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Passersby might never guess that this inconspicuous brown brick building on the edge of the Gay Village is actually a historic 1870 mansion that houses a bed and breakfast. Owner Alain Pigeon spent three years restoring the period arches, moldings, and hardwood floors—original details still found in local apartments. The spotless rooms are furnished simply (to be expected, given the reasonable rates), but they're quite cozy, thanks to finishing touches like a chaise longue, knotty pine floor, or claw-foot tub. Two of the five rooms share a hallway bathroom; book as early as possible to guarantee en suite facilities. The communal living room, with an electric fireplace, (unstocked) fridge, and an outdoor courtyard add to the homey, congenial vibe. There is also a computer for guests as well as free wireless Internet access in all the rooms. Complimentary breakfast is served between 9 and 10:30 a.m. according to the chef's whim (usually something heavy and traditional, like French toast or crêpes) but the staff is sensitive to dietary restrictions.
