Hotel XIX Siecle Old Montreal Boutique Hotel

Posted on 09 February 2010 by admin

L’Hôtel XIXe siècle is full of old world charm and located in the heart of Old Montreal. You’ll find all the modern amenities of Montreal hotels within a beautifully renovated “French Second Empire” building.

The Old Montreal boutique hotel has elegant, spacious rooms with high ceilings and large windows. Each room is unique and has been furnished with panache in Louis-Philippe style. Amongst Montreal hotels, the XIXe Siècle distinguishes itself thanks to its unparalleled commitment to service.

The architecture of the building is pure Second Empire, inspired by the French Renaissance. Inside, the restoration of many original architectural elements, such as the ceiling  friezes in the Entrance Hall and the staircase leading to what was once the vault and is now the library, help to preserve the spirit of the 19th century all the while maintaining a modern Montreal hotel commitment to quality.

All just a stone’s throw away from the Palais des Congres Convention Center, downtown Montreal  shopping on Ste-Catherine street and the business district.

In Old Montreal you’ll be able to admire one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival style, the Notre-Dame Basilica built in 1829, as well as countless museums, monuments, art galleries, cafés, shops, and more.

L’Hôtel XIX siècle is proud to be a part of that glorious Victorian past. Built in 1870 and designed by Michel Laurent, our building was originally the head office of the Montreal City and District Savings Bank. In 1945 the bank began renting office space and attracted many law firms, including that of Jean Drapeau – who would go on to become Montreal’s most beloved and controversial mayor for three decades, building the Metro system and Place des Arts and bringing the 1967 World Exposition and 1976 Olympic Games to Montreal.

After 3 and a half years of renovations, l’Hôtel XIXe siècle opened its doors in May 2001.
