Hotel de Paris is an old family manor turned hotel on Sherbrooke street in Montreal, and I was lucky enough to call it home for 10 days. The hotel has been operating for over 30 years and has quite a cool growth story, starting out with only 9 rooms and expanding over the years to their current size which holds 43. It speaks to the quality of the hotel that they are able to keep expanding for their growing popularity- I was fortunate to be accommodated last minute.
I’ve really grown to love boutique hotels like this one- they have more character and charm, providing for a personalized experience. I also appreciate a hotel that is small and intimate where you can actually interact with the staff. Since I’m always on the road, it’s really meaningful to me when I find a place that feels cozy and as if I’m really at home. It’s not everyday that I find a place that feels like a sanctuary amidst an ever-turning and twisting, rocky road that is my travel lifestyle, so when I do, I appreciate it beyond belief.
From check in to check out, I felt comfortable and completely taken care of at this hotel. It was truly a great experience, and I haven’t even shown you the room yet…

There are some moments during my travels when I’ve looked around me, then up at the sky and wondered “Is this real life?” That’s how I felt when I walked in to my suite.
The Sam Wimisner Suite, aka my new favorite hotel “room” in Canada and beyond, is on the 4th floor and sleeps up to 6 people. There I was with it all to myself, wondering what I’d do with all the space. A truly great “problem” to have. 😉
The suite had dream decor for a girly girl like me- pink chairs and Paris themed everything.
There was even a princess nook in a second loft above the queen bed downstairs.
Most nights I sat and watched the sun go down from my “Princess nook” and felt like I was not only on cloud 9, I was living there.
Downstairs every morning, from 7:30-10:30, there was a breakfast spread that made a breakfast person out of me.
And in the afternoons I took in surrounding scenery like this…
Between the weather and the amazingness of the suite I found myself wanting to stay in more than usual.
I mean, there’s a jacuzzi tub in the room…how could you want to leave THAT?
I told Dino, the owner, that I wanted to move in permanently. He laughed, but I was serious. This loft suite is my dream apartment. If only I could spend every night in a place like this, I may even consider staying in one city, and that’s really saying something because I am a TRAVEL BLOGGER after all…😆
I (reluctantly) checked out on Friday and felt a little tug on my heartstrings when I walked out of the suite and down the hall. I’ll miss Hotel de Paris– and I’ll really miss that Princess nook!
After battling with my first-ever REAL Winter, spending time at this hotel was the ultimate treat and the perfect way to end my time in Montreal.
