Pointe-à-Callière has been recognized as a national historic site since 1998.

Since it opened, it has welcomed more than 350,000 visitors a year. Nearly 4.5 million people have come to the Museum since 1992. Pointe-à-Callière has been honoured with more than fifty national and international awards.

Super clean, friendly staff, and amazing neighbourhood

We came for a music festival.. We were in the heart of bars, bistros, microbreweries and restaurants. The room was smaller but very very clean, the staff was helpful and very pleasant. We were only there for sleeping. We found the bed very comfy. We didn’t have breakfast there as we were out and off to the local restaurants.. It was a little odd the set up, but the price and location (2 blocks from the metro) was perfect. We will be staying here the next time we are in Montreal!!
