We awoke to a beautiful sunny morning. I had decided today we would go to the Jean Drapeau Island. This is where the formula 1 is held each year, and it was also the site of the 1967 Olympics. Although I had been advised against going from Alison (the woman who drove us to our hotel from the train station) because all of the activities are overpriced and not very good, we had done everything else in the Lonely Planet book. I couldn't sit in my ...

... was just in time, as I needed to give 24 hours' notice to change my bus. I got up for the free breakfast, went back to bed for a couple of hours, then wandered to a chain cafe that the others had said they had had amazingly delicious crepes at the day before, for lunch. I made the mistake of ordering a savoury crepe, which are probably never as good – although the ham, cheese an egg one I had at that stand in Paris was delicious. But I just rarely feel like sweets for a main meal! ...
Where do I start... I'm in Montreal. Point Clare, actually, which is a suburb of the city. This trip has been an experience. Half of it is absolutely wonderful, and the other half is challenging on several fronts. The first would be MM, and I can't say much about that on here, as the person is a reader. I just wish I felt differently. My personal inabilities on this subject are frustrating and make everything ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Hotel & Suites Downtown Montreal
HELL NO, you've got to be kidding me!!!
1st. the damn door in the room wouldnt close properly. 2nd no alarm clock. 3rd stains all over the floor in the room and in the hallway.
4th the lighting in the room was so dark could barely see anything even during the day. 5th location of hotel in not so great part of town. 6th Not so friendly looking people in across the street front of the pay per hour motel (you know what I mean). 7th The tv in the room was so old probably from the late 1970's only got 13 channels. 8th No Ice Machine even though they provided an ice bucket in your room. 9th They advertise that it is a Hotel - really it is a dirty motel. 10th The parking was free - GREAT! but the parking was structured so poorly and unorganized people would even park infront of your car and leave it there (parking is first come first serve only). = The only reason I gave this hotel a 2 star was because of the very friendly lady behind the front desk even though to get her attention after all the phone calls she recieved and people hovering all over the desk because she was the only one there she was very polite and friendly. The other good thing about this place was the price, it was very cheap (you pay what you get). If you ask why we stayed at this place it was because my girlfriend and I came down to Montreal for the Jazz Fesitval and our first 5 hotel picks were all booked and the only place available for our entire stay was Hotel Taj Mahal. People beware this place is worth the price you pay, great price but thats all it is. Finally if you have no other place to stay you can always know there will be a room at the Taj Mahal and trust me when you walk into your room dont be surprised to catch yourself saying "HELL NO!!! you've got to be kidding me".
A Shady Stay
First of all, I've read some of the latest reviews for this "hotel" on this website, so this info should have givin me an idea of what to expect. I was expecting a bright, clean, newly-renovated room at a very good rate, but instead I was givin a room that was the total opposite.
The room that I stayed in was on the second floor...I believe this is one of the rooms that had not been renovated yet (I wonder if any of the rooms in this hotel were renovated as they claim???) Eventhough I turned-on every single light in this room, it was still very dim. The lighting in this room was terrible, even in the bathroom. I did not want to keep the drapes open because it was facing the parking lot & bus terminal...a girl needs a little privacy. You figure after a long day of sightseeing & shopping, wouldn't you want to take your shoes off and relax? Nope. I couldn't even do that. The carpet was so old & dirty that I had to place the blanket on the floor so that I could walk on it...with my socks on still! The television was so old that I was only able to get 13 channels...there was no cable! As for the bedding, I don't think they even changed the sheets...they just made my bed...and that was it. As for the staff...what staff??? There was only one person at the front desk. She answered internal & external phone calls, took care of guests checking in & out, and other small tasks. This staff member was quite polite though. The location of this "hotel" wasn't the greatest either. It's in the heart of the bad & dirty side of downtown Montreal. I guess that's what anybody should expect for a price that I paid.
Big change !!!
Changes, changes, the taj mahal has had a dromatic chance in the past seven mounths, of my 4 week trip during the grand-prix F1 week-end with my family, 2002 was a horriable experence my family and I had, but we still agread for one final shot, do to hearing that there was a new owner in the hotel busines. well, big changes have been made from the view of our eyes, such as a brand new staff, an active restorant, and sweet hospatality. A welming heart of the city of montreal, great stay. by: Christine Zacotrie
Not a highlight of Montreal
Oh My where to start....Horrible experience... Reception couldn't speak English (probably not French either). Room was ok, but no TV remote and reception couldn't/wouldn't help. Stains on the carpets, damage to the walls of the rooms, bathroom water ran all night long, and not to mention the buses backing up. No in-hotel food (even though they advertise a resto/bar) and no radio in room (advertised as well). On top of this the Manager didn't care of complaints. The only positive was it is better than the surrounding hotels.
Terrible Hotel.. Staff were ------, and it was a dirty hotel. Friends car got broken into at the hotel parking lot and the staff did nothing but tell us to go ----- ourselves. Room was dirty and very small. Only good thing about the hotel was the location and the liqour store across the street. Will never stay here again and not recommened
More of a motel than a hotel
This hotel looks more like a motel than a hotel, i have to admit, me going there a few times i have noticed that they made some renovations, but still, they also raised there prices, for the same prices, you are better off going to hotels like quality inn or holiday in. I have to say it has an ok location downtown montreal if you are driving. But, right accross the street, you will notice some motels where you pay per hour, we all know for what purpose. But it is perfect for students, it is right next to a greyhound station .
i was appauled after reading the list of reviews. i stayed at the Taj the second week of march in 2001. not only were the employees ------, they were not helpful with directions and general questions. maybe it was because we were a bunch of drunk college kids, but even when asked nicely they were --------. you cant beat the price but the service is awful...
I love Taj-Mahal
I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the Taj-Mahal! The rooms are beautiful, the people are soooooooo nice, I get lots of pillows, and my lover and I had a great time. To the first person that left a review - my friends and I were the drunk people in the hall. We spent way too much time at the bars and strip clubs, and then we brought the strip club back to the hotel - those are the friends in the hall way. you and your lover should have came out and joined us. go to the taj-mahal!
Taj-Mahal...I think not!
I stayed at the hotel Taj-Mahal this past weekend with my lover. The hotel is clean with small rooms and a not so accommodating staff. The room we were given was next to the elevator. The elevator was loud, very loud. When we requested a room change, we were denied. The concierge claimed all rooms were booked, a lie I say. The next day we requested 1 extra pillow each, we were denied that also. For what you pay and for what you receive, it is not a good value...a small room with 1 pillow and the sound of a dinosaur crashing every 5 minutes. The only thing that drowned the elevator noise out was the drunks yelling in the hallway.
The place to stay near the party district, and spend as little as possible room
great location, not even a block to st. cathrines st. (the party district - bars, clubs, resturantes, and strip clubs as far as the eye can see). if you just want a place to sleep (and pass-out at) after a night on the town than look no furter, its cheap. the service isnt the most friendly, and a word of advice.. dont eat their breakfast! Seriously, im thinking ill stay there again when i go back in the summer, cant beat the location.
