OPUS Hotel Montreal

10 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest
Montreal , Quebec , Canada
(866) 744-6346

Located at the intersection of Rue Sherbrooke and Boulevard Saint-Laurent—equidistant from downtown and the Plateau—this property should have been a slam-dunk when it opened in 2004 as the design-driven Hotel Godin. But after much ado, things fizzled, thanks in large part to the owners’ inability to get a liquor license. Thankfully, Vancouver’s playful Trilogy Group took it over in 2007, and the comfortable, well-sized rooms are now brighter and more colorful (albeit rather generic), and the property—finally!—can serve booze. The vibe is still resolutely young, but the Opus professionalism shines through.

Insider Tip: Take advantage of the ground-floor gym, which has floor-to-ceiling windows and top-of-the-line equipment.

Room to Book: The executive suites, for their extra-large spa baths.
