Tips For Staying In Plateau Mont Royal, Montreal

Plateau Mont Royal is a residential area of Montreal, situated north of Mont Royal. This area is well suited for travellers who prefer staying outside of popular tourist areas and enjoy a more true experience of local life.

Ample Budget-Friendly Hotels
Located away from the more touristy areas of Montreal, Plateau Mont Royal offers several affordable hotel options. These smaller budget-friendly hotels are independently owned, minimally furnished and have few on-site amenities. However, many of these small hotels offer a free breakfast and are nestled in quiet residential areas. If you're driving to Montreal, be careful when booking one of these hotels, as some do not have on-site parking.

Our Editor's Pick for this area, Hotel Kutuma, is an affordable boutique hotel with an African flair. This hotel is well located for exploring the Plateau area and the Latin Quarter, which is only a 6-minute walk away. The rooms are spacious, well decorated and well equipped with amenities. 

Hotels Near Popular Tourist Attractions
There are several larger chain hotels located along Sherbrooke Street, the east end of the Plateau Mont Royal area. These hotels are more expensive than the above budget hotels, but they are well located for guests looking to walk to neighbouring attractions. The Latin Quarter, the Place des Arts and Old Montreal can all be found within a 15-minute walk. 

On the eastern edge of Plateau Mont Royal, the Hilton Garden Inn Montreal Centre-ville is another of our Editor's Picks. With competitive prices, clean rooms and free Wi-Fi, this hotel offers great value. But it doesn't end there; this hotel also features a rooftop pool, an on-site convenience store and on-site dining. 

Getting Around
If you choose a hotel on or near Sherbrooke Street, like our Editor's Pick Hotel Kutuma, there are many attractions within walking distance and the nearest subway stations (Place des Arts, Sherbrooke and Saint-Laurent) are within a 5-minute walk. Subway fares are $3 per ride or $10 for a day pass. 

Other hotels in Plateau Mont Royal are closer to the Laurier subway station and the Mont Royal station. Another transit option in the Plateau is the public transit buses. There are several bus routes in this area and single-ride tickets for the bus are $3.

Come to Eat
The eclectic nature of this neighbourhood is evident in the dining offerings. As is common throughout Montreal, many area restaurants allow patrons to bring their own wine. One highly recommended breakfast and lunch restaurant is Beauty’s Luncheonette, found in the northern area of Plateau Mont Royal. This restaurant has been a fixture in Montreal since its doors opened in 1942 and the original owner, now in his 90s, still sits at the door and directs customers to their seats. On the weekends, this restaurant is lined up out the door!

However, Le Nil Bleu at Hotel Kutuma is another great option, and a favourite with the locals, voted best restaurant in Montreal several years in a row by Montreal Mirror readers. And, if you're too tired to make it downstairs, you can just order room service!

Exploring Plateau Mont Royal
Make time on your trip just to roam around this trendy neighbourhood on foot, perusing the shops, cafes, bars, art galleries and architecture of the century-old homes with wrought-iron staircases. 
Known for its funky vibe and diverse francophone demographics, Plateau Mont Royal is considered by some locals to be the real Montreal.
