Get a taste for Montreal’s glamorous side at the Ritz-Carlton, or stay close to the port at Auberge du Vieux-Port, which is housed in a 19th-century leather merchant building facing the St. Lawrence River. Travelers looking to mingle with locals should visit the Hotel Nelligan, home to one of the city’s most popular rooftop bars.
