    Historical Traveler Reviews Chateau Versailles Montreal

    Charming hotel


    Stayed at the Chateau Versailles one night. We were upgraded to a king room, complete with fireplace. The room is stylish and charming. The hotel staff is very friendly. Continental breakfast very nice.

    Would stay there again.

    Great location for points of interest in Mtl.

    Old world charm updated.


    This hotel is housed in an elegant old townhouse, and has a character all its own. We thought the conversion, (and recent renovation, I believe) were most successful; our room was pleasant, comfortable and well-appointed, and the communal areas really enhanced our stay, with their gracious but domestic scale and interesting artworks. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast lounge, where one could enjoy a substantial and varied buffet meal to the accompaniment of light classical music. There is also a gym/sauna, and modern internet facilities. We thought the place combined French refinement wjith Canadian friendliness, but if you want or need a lift (elevator), a really big room or a cooked breakfast other than from room-service, you'd probably be better off across the road at the high-rise Versailles Meridien.

    Great experience


    I stayed at this hotel for 3 days last week and had a great experience.

    The staff were all very helpful. They even gave me a space heater upon check in becasue they were worried my room might be cold (it wasn't.) The breakfast is good, the location is perfect for visiting Montreal.

    The room was very clean and nicely decorated.

    Our room is in the basement?


    We got a fabulous rate on this hotel ($100 CDN a night) which we thought was a steal for such a well reviewed hotel. What we did not know is that this rate obviously secured us the basement closet. I'm sorry, but no matter what sale or discount you get, you assume that you will get a nice room that is on par with the other room offerings of that hotel. I wasn't expecting a suite, but I was expecting to be able to see sunlight.

    All in all, disappointing.

    Excellent accommodations


    The Chateau Versailles is the only place I stay when I travel to Montreal. It is centrally located is an easy walk to the metro, museums, and bars and restaurants on Crescent or Ste Catherine. The people there are very nice and the rooms are very cozy.

    Nice but hot (even in the dead of winter)!


    My husband and I spent three nights here in December of 2002. We liked the hotel very much, especially the friendly service of the staff. Our room was small but generally comfortable. When we first arrived, the toilet in our bathroom was "running," and the problem was fixed immediately. However, there was one "unfixable" problem. Even though it was in the 20's (Fahrenheit) outside, the heat in the hotel was stifling such that I could hardly sleep. (I must, in fairness, add that I have to be pretty cool to sleep comfortably any time of year.) There are no individual room thermostats. Opening the window helped cool the room temporarily, but the traffic was too noisy for this to be a permanent solution. When my husband asked that the heat be turned down, he was told that other guests had asked that it be turned up! This is a lovely hotel but perhaps not for the heat-sensitive.

    Perfect weekend!!


    For our first visit to Montreal, we could not have chosen a more charming and romantic hotel than Chateau Versailles.

    The rooms were apparently recently renovated -- very clean and tastefully decorated with warm, contemporary decor.

    For the winter, the suite with the fireplace is worth the extra money. It's much more spacious with a sitting area, although the bathroom is considerably smaller and not suitable for more than one person at a time. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well, and the location was central to most everything. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this hotel over a larger chain.

    Elegance at an affordable price.


    In rebuttal to the first comment about the heat, I would say that one should request the first floor if that is a concern. I did not see a third floor room but ours was spacious and cool! After all, cold air falls, oui? The staff was friendly and well spoken, and the continental breakfast was good. Though our room was clean, there was an issue with the dishes at the breakfasts. A glass my wife picked up had lipstick on it and the other dishes definitely had leftover residue from the dishwashing process. The only other complaint would be the thinness of the walls and floors. Running kids at 11pm and wake up calls at 6 may be heard. All in all, I intend to stay there again if I return to Montreal.

    Nice but Hot


    Very nice hotel - friendly staff, decent breakfast. But - DON'T GO IN SUMMERTIME!!!

    2 important things. We stayed in a "deluxe room" - which simply meant it was on the 3rd floor instead of the first. The room was a little small although the bathroom was nice.

    More importantly, because the hotel was older, rooms did not have control of air conditioning. I ignored other web comments that this was a potential problem. This was a mistake. Our room was very, very , very warm - almost 82 degrees and they could not fix it. It was very difficult to sleep there if you are used to sleeping in cooler environments.

    In winter or fall this would be a great hotel. But, don't stay here in the summer!!!

    Great location.


    Stayed at Chateau Versailles for 5 nights. Room was small and faced an inner courtyard. First impression of the room was great until I found a previous guest's hair on the sheets and on the bathroom floor. Decor was nice. Room service comes from the hotel across the street and is quick. Food was ok. Overall a good hotel in Montreal but needs to do a better cleaning job!

This one is highly recommended in the "apportez votre vin" category and, like many of these smaller places, has two evening sittings (we took the 6 pm) and serve a "table d'hote" of soup, appetizer, dish and dessert for $12 over the cost of your main dish.

    ... cooling syrup to create a still-warm viscous lollypop of the maple syrup, which he ate immediately.

    We were fascinated and watched it happen a few times before ordering our own and rolling it up to try. The syrup was still warm, but not hot, and had the texture of a taffy or soft caramel, but with a rich, roasted maple syrup flavor. It was very fun to try, and the next time I'm staying somewhere with fresh snow I'll try to recreate ...

She nicely told me I could ask someone else in the line to spend the day with us. But who would want to do ...

    ... could drag a bubble up around you with a hoop. One of my favorites was the infrared showing thingy. It was just inside the entranceway of the first exhibit I went to. Was interesting seeing the change in heat emitted caused by removing my winter coat. They had an interesting section on "truth or hoaxes". I loved the one where it showed you diff amazing emails that forward the net and you guess if they are truth or hoaxes. I also loved the one where a magician revealed ...
