Expert Tip. Renoir restaurant takes its name from the famous French painter. Initially, the owner of the hotel possessed Renoir's original painting, "Still Life with Melon and Peaches," but has since donated this masterwork to Montreal's Museum of Fine Arts. A copy now rests on an easel at the restaurant's entrance.
