Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel du Fort Montreal
Great stay,highly recommend this place
decent location, near 2 metro stops. helpful staff. nice breakfast in classy restaurant. will stay here again when in montreal
We spent in this hotel 3 nights in mid June. The rate was around $130 with breakfest and parking (2 levels under hotel) included. Breakfast is ok regular. Staff is helpful. The Room was nice and clean. All the rooms are on top floors, and ours had an amasing view. The Kitchenette was great. There are many restorants around the hotel. The area around hotel is not really upscale, but i guess it was ok. It takes 10 mins to walk to Cresent str, maybe 18 mins to NotreDame de Montreal. 10 mins to metro (Guy Station). The Hotel does not have a pool. Almost all point of interest located 10-30 mins walking North East by St Caterine str. Overall the stay was good
My favorite hotel
What to say about this hotel? I stayed there 4 times in the last year. Nice staff, large rooms, great view of downtown, great location. Only downside is the breakfast (quite basic). All in all, excellent.
Fantastic room, value & location
We booked this hotel unsure of it's location...it seemed far from the central downtown shopping, nightlife etc on the map. However, we were pleasantly surprised, it only took about 5-10 minutes by walking. The entire city can be discovered by walking; a half an hour walk took us to old montreal. As we had a kitchenette in our room, we decided to go across the street to the supermarket to grab some snacks and breakfast for the next morning. Be warned that the kitchette does not have any utensils or plates...i suggest grabbing a couple plastic utensils from the supermarket. The room was very clean, quite spacious, and had a great view of the city. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I received a rate of $90 /night from the Montreal-tourisme website (last minute deals). By Montreal standards, it's quite a deal!
Great Value, Location
We enjoyed our stay (Oct. 3-6) very much. When I made reservations, I mentioned that we would be celebrating our wedding anniversary and we were surprised with a complimentary upgrade to a suite. We had an immaculate corner room with big windows and views in three directions, a very comfortable king-sized bed, loveseat, big desk, kitchenette and a pop-up vanity. We could not hear traffic noise or our neighbors. A AAA package that includes parking and breakfast makes it affordable.
The breakfast buffet included croissants, bagels and other pastries, cereal, fruit, ham, cheese, yogurt and more. The hotel is convenient to public transportion. The friendly staff was helpful and provided excellent maps and at checkout, made sure we had the right forms for tax rebates. My only criticism, a nit, really, is the slow elevators.
IN THE ARMPIT OF MONTREAL
It wasn't all that great. I am a smoker and had requested a smoking room. Upon entering the room it smelled as though they had just had a keg party there. We then got a non-smoking room that was much better.
The rooms are ok but the Hotel itself does not offer much of anything.
No bar,ice machine only on one floor w/ vending of somethings. Parking is not included in the price of the room, we had to pay x-tra when the site leads you to believe it is included. Nothing is included!!!
Cleaning of the rooms everyday was only what had to be done.
The hotel was great for the price, we had booked it during the labor day weekend. It was in a good area and close to the st. cathrine st.
the staff was real nice and the rooms we clean. the room we had a small kithchen area. Would real recommend the hotel if available under $110.00 before taxes. also the parking is available under the hotel for extra $11.00 before taxes per day. But in montreal parking is hard so it was worth it. also the hotel is close to thier subway which is about 4-5 block away.
Very enjoyable stay.
Montreal is a wonderful place to visit and the Hotel du Fort is a very nice place to stay. We were greeted by an extremely friendly and helpful front desk clerk. Since it was our first time in the city, she gave us all kind of pointers on how to get around the city using their mass transit system and a list of some special events happening in town that weekend. (Note: Don't drive in Montreal. It's very difficult to read the tiny road signs and the drivers are not forgiving. You can walk faster to most places than you can drive! The Metro is extremely clean, safe and easy to use. It will take you just about anywhere you want to go. The 3 day pass was $14 and worth every penny.) Parking the car in the ramp next door to the hotel was very convenient. You don't need to go outside to access your car.
The room was very spacioius and clean. We had a nice view of the city lights at night. The room had a nice sitting area and a handy efficiency kitchenette. And 5 stars plus to the bed. Without a doubt the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I want to find out what brand it is so I can buy one for home!
Although the food always smelled very good when riding in the elevator, we never ate breakfast at the hotel. It is a little pricey. However there is a very handy mall area about a 1/2 block from the hotel. It has a wonderful restaurant/bakery that you can get a good breakfast at a reasonable price. And the pastries looked fabulous. (We found breakfast to generally be the most over priced of meals in Montreal.
Especially at formal resaurants.)
My only "disappointment" was that this hotel is in downtown, which we found to be surprisingly dirty. If Hotel du Fort was located in the "Old City" it would have been perfect.
Pretty good Hotel
I stayed at the Hotel du Fort during 4 days of the Grand Prix weekend in June 2003. The hotel is located several blocks west of Crescent Street at the corner of Ste. Catherine and Rue du Fort. It is a good location though it is several blocks to walk to a metro station. The hotel is quiet, comfortable and well managed. It is not luxurious but it meets the same standard as a Marriott Courtyard. My room was spacious and it had a kitchenette. Across the street were a grocery store and an internet cafe--both very convenient amenities to have nearby. It's not my favorite hotel in Montreal, but it is good and it's reasonably priced. I recommend it, esp. if you can get a good rate.
Would Stay Again
The Hotel du Fort was the perfect hotel for our first stay in Montreal. We requested a room with a view and were treated to a large room with a spectacular view of downtown. Location was great; neighborhood (Rue St. Catherine) was vibrant and filled with wonderful cafes and eateries.
Paid $95 (American) a night (Expedia) plus $14 a night parking fee. Service was carried out in a friendly and attentive manner. We would suggest eating breakfast at one of the nearby establishments, as breakfast was rather limited and pricey. That was the only negative.
For the traveller who is looking to stay in a quiet, comfortable hotel, in a jewel of a city, you need to look no farther than Hotel du Fort.

... I popped out to discover said rock-sports bar. If you sit and write in a busy place, it is a universal sign to others to jog on and leave you alone. For only truly hardcore writers write when there is a heady, very French combination of music, sports and wine going on.

... going to a hot country I'll pack a more comfortable pair of walking sandals, too, since I find it uncomfortable to do any serious walking in flip-flops. The optional ones are the little black heels. Hey, I'm five foot one, so sue me if I like a couple of inches of extra height now and again. If I know I won't have much occasion to dress up, I'll skip these and just manage with the flip-flops or hiking shoes.
