Notre-Dame Basilica (French: Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal) is a basilica in the historic district of Old Montreal, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The church is located at 110 Notre-Dame Street West, at the corner of Saint Sulpice Street. It is located next to the Saint-Sulpice Seminary and faces the Place d’Armes square.

The church’s Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Casavant Frères pipe organ, dated 1891, which comprises four keyboards, 92 stops using electropneumatic action and an adjustable combination system, 7000 individual pipes and a pedal board.

Great value, great location!

We stayed for a full week and had an overall great experience. The hotel was a wonderful deal for the price we paid. The location is excellent with dozens of restaurants of all types in easy walking distance since this area is near the Universite de Quebec a Montreal. We had a room with shared bath that was large enough for two people. The bed was comfortable. The Internet connection was faster than many. Breakfast included croissants, eggs, bread, cereal, juice, and coffee. We had more than enough to eat. My one complaint was unreliable hot water–sometimes fine, sometimes only warm. All the staff were friendly. Some guests could have been quieter when they came in at 3:30 am after the bars closes, but that’s not really the hotel’s fault. I would stay here again.
