Hotel Nelligan, Montréal, Québec $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
A stone's throw from the old port, the 105-room Nelligan, opened in 2002, combines classic Old Montréal charm (original stonework, dark woods) with modern touches (a soaring atrium). It's a favorite of visiting Hollywood producers, and its brasserie, Verses, is equally popular among locals. As with most design-motivated hotels, service isn't its strongest asset (it's best to order room service before you feel a hunger pang). And for those seeking a sumptuous spa retreat, the modest massage salon will be a disappointment—although you can trek to the sister Hôtel Place d'Armes (55 St. Jacques St. W.; 514-842-1887; www.hotelplacedarmes.com) for more elaborate treatments if you're desperate. The Nelligan's fortes are its hipness, its ambience, and its location. All told, the fluffy cushions, overstuffed sofas, and padded area rugs make the rooms feel warm and inviting, or très chaleureux, as they say in Montréal. The owners have purchased the building next door, and in 2007 opened an expansion that holds 44 guest rooms, conference facilities, and a second brassierie, Méchant Boeuf.
