Historical Traveler Reviews Chateau de l'Argoat Montreal
A wonderful place to stay
We have stayed here twice. The rooms are very nice and clean, the location is perfect, the staff most helpful and friendly, and the price is right!
The reviews are true!
With this price, the place is perfection! The staff are very friendly and the rooms are bright and cheery. A variety of tasties are available each morning as well as coffee or tea throughout the day. It is a short walk to the Metro and parking is convenient. Montreal is a fantastic city and this is the place that will make you fall in love with the city
Chateau de l'Argoat is Wonderful!
I have been staying at Chateau de l'Argoat for over 20 years. I even remember the previous owners! My friend and I, and also my kids and I, used to come to Montreal for hockey games and other recreation -- sometimes I just came by myself to get away from it all. The place is clean, comfortable, tres European, wonderful bargain, with a great location, nice staff. Cannot beat it! My favorite hotel in town. My (second) wife and I had our honeymoon here six years ago and we hope to celebrate our anniversary at the jazz festival this year!
The perfect spot
I stayed at this hotel because of the comments on your web site, and it was a perfect choice. The hotel is very conveniently located (near the metro Sherbrooke and Berri Uquam, near rue st Denis). The staff : very nice. A very good breakfast is included. For my next stay, I will return to Chateau l'Argoat.
Great Family Stay
I recently traveled to Montreal with my younger brother, younger cousin, and Grandmother. We had no idea where to pick to stay in a city the size of Montreal.
Our choice with Chateau de L'argoat was perfect. A close walk to Rue St. Denis and the subway station was across the street. Being that Montreal is so easy to get around, this location was great.
We had a huge window view onto Sherbrooke street from our double queen room. The three story building feels older, but in a comfortable friendly way. Their staff was very friendly and very hospitable for breakfast. The next time I go back to Montreal, this hotel will be my first consideration.
Clean, Close to Rue St Denis
This hotel is in an excellent position - a short walk to a large selection of cafes and restaurants on the Rue St Denis (3 blocks)and also a couple of blocks to a metro station. It is surprisingly reasonably priced for what you get. The rooms are clean and breakfast is included. It also has internet access. Staff were very helpful. Our room faced the back parking lot and we were not bothered with any traffic noise at night. The interior decorating was functional but you wouldn't spend too much time indoors when you are so close to the busy Rue St Denis.
We love Chateau L'Argoat !
Chateau L'Argoat is adorable, reasonably priced, and the service is excellent. The rooms are spotless, quaintly decorated in a very European style, roomy, with SPOTLESS modern bathrooms, some with whirlpool tubs. The staff is attentive, helpful and friendly. It is located near a great area for restaurants & bars but is on a quiter street. We love it !
What a little treasure!
I visit Montreal 2-3 times a year, and I will now stay only at Chateau De L'argoat. Conveniently located, free parking (even though it is outdoors), continental breakfast prepared to your specific order. The room was exceptionally clean, the carpet is made for barefeet. I loved the jacuzzi. The staff is friendly and efficient. I will be going back in June 2003 and my reservations are already made!
The perfect spot
Chateau De L'Argoat is very conveniently located, moderately-priced with comfortable, beautifully-decorated rooms. The staff, for the most part, was quite helpful. If you want a spot in the middle of all the action, this is not the place. If you want a place near the action, convenient to the metro, and where you can get a good night's sleep, this is.
For those who want a room that doesn't look like all the others
I have been staying here off and on for about five years now. When they say European style hotel, what is meant is that the rooms don't all look alike, and they sure don't at the "Argoat". I have my favourites. Prices vary greatly between the "astronaut rooms" and larger rooms, one (35) with a very big jaccuzi. All of them sport a reasonable price for an in-town location, which is near the popular St-Denis and University districts. A metro stop is two blocks away. The rooms are not lavishly furnished, but they are home-y. Be advised of the drawbacks; the small hallways and stairs are difficult to navigate with a lot of luggage, and the 'continental breakfast' may not fill up larger appetites. On the other hand, the place does offer free parking, free local phone calls, and no 'honor bar' -- all of which are used in other locations to sneak CDN$ 40 - 50 to your bill. Rooms are clean and the clientelle seems to be upscale if not wealthy. Lastly, the management have recently added an internet monitor, for those who can't do without their e-mail twice a day.

... restaurants): Just this morning at 8 am we partook in the best croissants ever at a bakery called Fous Dessert (note to Gilles for his next trip to town). A young sales clerk at the Hudson Bay store (here the Bay is called Compagnie de la Baie D'Hudson) told us about it (best in la cite, she said). She was right about both the cream she sold me and ...

As we wandered up the hill that the square is on, we saw a Cabane a Sucre, or a Sugar Shack, that was set up at the top of the square. A Cabane a Sucre is a wooden shack set up to sell maple sweets during the winter. The larger ones have a variety of winter-related activities, like sled rides, and the custom of having these houses that converted the maple syrup to ...
This morning after much debate (aggravation/ tension on Noel's behalf) we managed to get all of our luggage, bikes, wheels etc into the car. Nicole and I had to share just over one seat for the long trip back to Montreal. It took us two and a half hours. My seat was taken up by Nicole's bike case.
We eventually arrived at our friends, Jacynthe and Gilles home. We unpacked the luggage ...
... it with my scarf, but them my scarf got wet from condensation from my breath! My thighs were freezing....like I was standing in barrel of icy water... And one of my toes went numb. When I was in "Place De Armes" (like a plaza) I took off my glove to work my phone, it so cold my fingers were in pain. Then my phone shut down and said it was outta battery. ??? It had 40%??? Just too cold I guess. Anyway. After the phone died I went to Maccas for a hot chocolate. That defrosted ...
... At the top of the range and seriously expensive but mouth wateringly good is “Le Filet”. The place is crowded and noisy but every course tastes different to anything I have ever had before. Booking is essential and make sure your credit card won’t go over the limit! Another ************ but excellent for a long lunch is the seafood platter at le Pois Penche on 1230 Maisonneuve. $90 for a huge platter of crab, lobster, oysters, clams, ...
