Spend a night at the museum in the Auberge Saint-Antoine (from $179), where the towering lobby was once a seventeenth-century gun battery and 750 local artifacts are displayed throughout the 95-room hotel. The rooms are bigger than most Manhattan studios, and come with river-facing terraces.
Book a loftlike suite at Auberge Le Vincent (from $159) in the Saint Roch neighborhood, a once-scruffy corner of town that now mirrors the indie bars and brunch spots of the Lower East Side. Your room will have exposed brick walls, glassed-in showers, flat-screen TVs, and floral-free bedding.
Prepare your palate at the Auberge J.A. Moisan (from $107), a B&B perched above J.A. Moisan, the oldest grocery store in North America. Soak in a claw-foot tub and fantasize about tomorrow's breakfast: berry-heaped waffles, fresh croissants, and pâtésall from the shop downstairs.
