Hotel Pierre du Calvet is one of the oldest standing buildings in Old Montreal. It was built in the year 1725 and became the home of French settler Pierre du Calvet and his family in 1758. Pierre du Calvet was largely involved in the political tensions that took place throughout the 18th century, having worked with both the British and the Americans. In fact, it is said that Benjamin Franklin himself visited the home of du Calvet during the American Revolution!

In the 1960s, the Trottier family purchased the property and transformed it into the boutique hotel we know it as today. When walking in, you’ll truly feel as though you’ve stepped into the 18th century. The nearly 300 year old stone walls have remained in place and much of the furniture in the hotel is of Baroque and French Colonial inspiration. Antique wooden dressers, lavish gold murals and luxurious bedding await you in all nine individually designed rooms at Pierre du Calvet. Yes, they have TVs and Wi-Fi too, in case you were wondering. Also featured in the castle-like hotel: a secret chamber, a library, a Victorian greenhouse, an outdoor terrace, a living room and the upscale and authentic restaurant Les Filles du Roy.

With its fascinating history, stunning decor and relaxed and romantic atmosphere, Pierre du Calvet Hotel-Chateau is everything you want in a hotel and more. Give yourself the royal treatment and book your stay at Pierre du Calvet.
