Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Cantlie Suites Montreal
Nice, inexpensive hotel
Nice hotel. Clean, comfortable room. Good location. Relatively inexpensive. Would definitely stay there again.
Gestapo at the front desk
Stopped in for a 2 night stay on my way up to Mont Tremblant. While at the hotel we had 2 friends staying in the area visit our room. The lobby immediately phoned the room and wanted to know who the people were and if they would be spending the night as there was a 25 CAD per person extra charge. Given the size of the room (2 double beds and a sofa-bed), I couldn't understand the need for these gestapo tactics.
Once I explain the situation to the clerk, it seemed to get resolved.
However, over the next day and half my fiance and I were hassled as to whether or not the 2 individuals had spent the night. I've never run into a situation like this at a hotel in my life. Would not recommend staying here to anyone. If you like the location, stay right around the corner at the Marriot Residence Inn. I stayed at that hotel 2 years ago for 1 week and had a great experience.
It is located on Peel St., just 1 block away from Sherbrooke.
Pretty dissappointing stay for my wife and I... We decided to spend a week-end in Montreal for our anniversary only to be treated with great hositility at this supposed 4 star hotel! Being of African-American descent, it was quite disappointing to see an all-white staff in a city that boasts about their multiculturalism!
Choose another hotel.
We stayed at the Le Cantlie Suites this October, 2003. The hotel was included in a package deal to Montreal (not at trip advisor). What a disappointment! The hotel is run down and dirty. The Le Cantlie Suites' web site states there are "spectacular views of the Montreal skyline," but the first room we were offered - as a free upgrade no less - faced another building over an alley next to the elevator. When we complained we were shown a room on the 15th floor with a little view of Mont Royal between two buildings across the street. But like another reviewer found, the windows were filthy. So, we didn't know the city, we had gotten lost driving from Durval airport to downtown, we where tired, and we were stuck. Don't let it happen to you. Absolutely choose another hotel if you're going to Montreal. I have no idea why anyone would recommend this hotel.
Would not recommend le Cantlie Suites
Stayed here before. Pleased in the past, location is good. However, this time staff was not helpful, uninformed, housekeeping had many problems, beware of free h'or deurves in bar as they never materialized. Booked for 3 people but had to constantly ask and follow up for towels, cups, soap, just the basics. Roof pool was unheated in August and only vending service is on the 27th floor for the entire hotel. Bar was not open until 6 or 7 at night to serve sodas. Staff would listen to request and then do nothing.
Mixed Emotions over Le Cantlie Suites
My husband and I stayed at Le Cantlie Suites in late July, 2003. The hotel was attractive; the lobby was nice; the room itself was fine, but smaller than I anticipated. We booked a deluxe studio suite. Each room comes equipped with a European Kitchen. I never knew what a European kitchen was until I entered our room. Next to the bed is what appears to be a double-doored closet. When you open the door, you find a small refrigerator (holds approx. 12 cans of soda--nothing else). Above that is a small sink with a microwave oven. There are overhead cabinets with a set of plates and coffee cups as well as a toaster and silverware.
So, does that mean Europeans don't use stoves in their kitchens? Oh, well.
There is a placard on the desk which advertises the continental buffet.
Don't be fooled into thinking this is free. It's not. Also, the valet parking costs approx. $13US/day (I think--I have trouble converting Canadian to US$).
We were given a room on the 11th floor, so though the Hotel hypes their beautiful window views, we found none of that. As a matter of fact, the windows were so filthy even if there were wonderful views, we could barely see through the windows! The dirty view from our window was the rooftops of shorter buildings.
The location of the hotel itself is wonderful. It's on a large but quiet street and is just a few blocks to the shopping areas on St.
Catherine as well as a short walk to the Museum of Fine Arts (which is free of charge for the standing exhibit).
All in all, the hotel was fine, though I think next visit I will stay elsewhere.
A great place to stay
Being so close to Montreal we travel there apprx every 8 weeks, for at least a night and spend a week in the summer. This is the best value in places to stay. The rooms are well appointed and have everything you need. The hotel is close to EVERYTHING. The staff has always been wonderful to us. We don't stay anywhere else.
NOT UP TO PAR
The front desk staff was overworked and nbot very coopertive. The outdoor pool was too cold to enjoy in July. Housekeeping tried but there were problems. Location was good, but next time we will be staying at another hotel.
Simply wonderful. Unbeatable location (1/2 from Ritz Carlton, across the street from the Omni, 1 block from Peel Station on Metro). Hotel & Staff--The staff was gracious, polite, and very helpful. Although they were renovating when we stayed (July 2002), the hotel was quiet and nicely kept. Accomodations--The rooms are quite large compared to most other hotels, especially those in the same price range. Our standard suite was 400 sq feet with a queen size bed and queen size sofa bed, picture windows, desk/work area, tv in armoire, large closet, and European kitchenette. There was sufficient room to spread out and lounge around in after a day of sightseeing. The rooftop pool is small but it is definitely sunsplashed (unlike the Omni pool across the street which is visible from Cantlie rooftop pool and is shadowed by bulidings). Rue St. Catherine is a stone's throw away (many shops, bars, cabarets, etc.) With sensible footwear and weather permitting, you can even walk to Old Montreal. My only wish is that they had better breakfast offerings, but not to worry Chez Cora is around the corner!Otherwise, you really can't go wrong by choosing to stay here!

... is stunning, especially in winter. the water is frozen, there is snow everywhere and the ships were all covered in snow. Across the port I saw probably the most incredible building I have ever seen in my life. I didn't even know this building existed until I saw it, but it is called habitat 67. it was originally designed by an architecture student and than built in 1967 for the Expo 67 held in Montreal. It is apartment buildings that overlook the port. Google it to get ...
... still flying along so it was a bit disappointing to not really get to see the colours of the trees as they flashed past us, we were delayed a few times once by a train with a broken down engine that only was going at a slow walking pace so as a result we were an Hour late into Halifax, we de-trained and got a taxi to the hotel and Booked in so tomorow is our first full day in Halifax Nova Scotia so talk soon sleep well all.
Cheers Baz and Taz.
... Takeoff time came and went and it remained warm and quiet. I realized that the engines hadn't started and had a sense of foreboding. It was confirmed a few minutes later when they reported that the aux power center was 'unserviceable' and they couldn't get the engines started. So, we were waiting for a jump cart. Twenty minutes later, the jump cart had failed and we were waiting for another jump cart. 45 minutes after that and we ...
... paid tickets stamped for our bus tour of the city.
We strolled across the park to “Jean” and boarded his bus where, for 2. hrs 30 mins we were treated to a commentary and guide…how quickly the time passed. Fascinating. Charming houses with pretty doors and iron balustrades resembling Paddington Z in Sydney!!
... a very pleasant two hours learning about Canada. Emerging into lighter rain we decided on a quick trip along Rue Ste Catherine, although we are not shoppers when on holiday (knowing you have to add anything you buy to your already heavy backpack acts as a deterrent). As usual, we were seduced by the classical music section of an HMV shop ...
