Tucked behind the landmark Notre Dame Basilica, but only a three-minute walk from the convention center, Montreal’s smart new Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel straddles the business-leisure divide. Like its Concorde Hotel affiliates (such as Paris’ de Crillon), the 108-room, all-suite boutique proffers refined comforts, including fireplaces, kitchenettes, and contemporary bathrooms. Guest room views through floor-to-ceiling French windows regard either Old Montreal’s cobblestone streets or the hotel’s courtyard gardens. From $144. (514) 288-1000,
