Le Mount Stephen

Explore Montreal’s Historic Golden Square Mile

Le Mount Stephen is located within the heart of Montreal’s Golden Square Mile, making our hotel the perfect choice for exploring this urban neighbourhood. Just walk outside your door to discover all this historic area has to offer.


The Golden Square Mile is nestled at the base of Mount Royal and between Rue Guy, Boulevard René-Lévesque O and Rue University. This 1-square-mile area was once home to some of Montreal’s wealthiest residents and featured unique architecture never before seen in Canada. Most of the elaborate homes that stood here have since been destroyed, but some remain intact and have been converted into museums, embassies, hotels and McGill University buildings.

Take a walking tour of these architectural treasures and admire their mix of medieval, renaissance, Greek, Roman, gothic and Germanic features. Afterwards, head to the Underground City for some shopping and dining below the city.
