Travel Blogs from Montreal

Disarray on the job site.

I took a morning walk to the old part of the city, which is only a couple blocks from the hotel, and got a good look at the exterior of the Notre Dame cathedral, and some other historic buildings before getting a call from the client. I got to the job site to find that the client hadn't picked up all the hardware he was supposed to have picked up. …

Parks, Playgrounds and Little Italy

... the troops in that direction. Turns out it was the one on the map that was noted as worth seeing. It was huge, as are most of the churches in Montreal. Montreal is full of churches but I get the distinct feeling that they are mostly empty come mass time. Unfortunately the map lied to me and there was no park next to the church. Samuel was extremely unhappy but what could he do?! We walked on. Thankfully we found a park. Although I wasn't overly happy about him playing ...

... 8220;waarom toch?'

Met een zeer zwaar hart stap ik het vliegtuig op. Niemand die langs me zit en twee goede films (De rouille et d'os EN The East) zorgen ervoor dat de vlucht snel voorbij is. In de Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau de Montréal luchthaven zit ik anderhalf uur te wachten voor een immigratie beambte me verder helpt. '”Cest interdit de travailler dans l'industrie du sexe” krijg ik nog mee van de vriendelijke ...

Montreal Fun!!

... art which adds further exuberence to the square. Around the fringes of the square street artists and musicians entertain the crowds and provide auditory delight to this fun community space. As you walk up the square you notice tiny alley like streets extending away from the square including one such alley which is filled with venders selling artworks known as artist alley. At the top of the square there is a noticeable column with a man perched on top of it. The column strikes ...

Saguenay to Montreal

... the day was filled with queries and emails. Antoine and I packed up at about 4 and said goodbye to the team and then left.

We stopped to get fuel on the way to the airport. I checked in with Air Canada then returned my rental car keys. It was 4:45 and Antoine just realized his plane was leaving at 5, luckily he was flying with Star Alliance and they just said tsk tsk and let him on.

I went through security to the gate and then boarded my ...

    We recommend this hotel

    from

    Whenever I'm in town, I try to stay in this hotel. It's in a convenient location and it's got a good size parking garage. The staff is friendly and helpful. The lobby is well decorated.

    A pleasant surprise

    from

    I was pleasantly surprised with this Holiday Inn. The rooms were larger than most Holiday Inns I've stayed in, the lobby is beautiful and the price seemed to be a bargain. Location is great and in the middle of everything.

    Hotel was good enough for our stay

    from

    My friends and I stayed at the Holiday Inn during the labour day long weekend in 2003. It is located in Chinatown and within walking distance of Old Montreal. Hotels during Labour Day are quite expensive and fully-booked, and we managed to get a deal here through a friend. The hotel was just average, we basically just slept there and that was it.

    Avoid this hotel

    from

    Unfortunately our time in this great city was marred by our experience of the Holiday Inn, Centre Ville. Its decent position in the Downtown area is the hotel s only good feature. Despite the fact that it is rated as four-star according to Montreal s own system of ratings, it is far from this level of quality. The interior is shabby and old fashioned, the sheets are threadbare, and every amenity stingy cracked coffee cups, smoke alarms that go off when you take a shower, tiny towels, et cetera, et cetera.Our biggest disappointment was that the hotel froze $400 on our credit card at the beginning of our stay for possible expenses, without informing us that they were going to do this. We had already paid upfront for our accommodation for three nights. We have traveled extensively throughout the US, Europe and Australia and nowhere else have we experienced this bond arrangement for staying in a third-class hotel room. How on earth could we have racked up a $400 bill in three nights? There wasn t even a fridge with goodies to consume! And why weren t we informed that the money would be charged to our credit card? Is this even legal? We certainly did not give our consent for this to happen. That money was explicitly for our holiday in Montreal, and as a result we had to scramble around for other options when our card was declined at a restaurant much to our surprise and chagrin!When we complained to the Holiday Inn, they said that the money is usually refunded five days after the end of your stay, but they would ring Visa and ask them to refund an initial $200 which would take 24 to 48 hours. Neither this, nor the rest of the sum has been refunded as yet and it has now been four days since the end of our stay and five days since we complained.Is it only wealthy people with a few thousand lying around in the bank that will be able to stay in hotels in the future? We are both students and this was our short holiday break on a budget. Obviously the Holiday Inn does not want our custom in the future, and I would recommend you avoid them also, as such ridiculous policies should be discouraged from spreading.

    Fine hotel in great location

    from

    The Holiday Inn Metro Select is a fine hotel with very convenient access to the Place D'Armes metro station. Additionally, the Palais De Congress Montreal, Vieux Montreal, Chinatown and the Underground City passage are all very nearby.

    Very pleased

    from

    We bid for a downtown Montreal on Priceline and got a room for $65 US.

    We had not stayed there before and were very pleased. The room and furnishings were solid and well maintained. We were on the 6th floor and had a nice view over old Montreal. The location is in Chintown (try fantastic Dim Sum at restaurant Lotte just around the corner on Clark Ave) and convenient to old Montreal and waterfront.

    Long Time Ago.....

    from

    Granted, we stayed there a long time ago, 2000, but we found it to be a great experience It is within walking distance from Old Montreal, they have an awesome Chinese restaurant, and the ambience is great--you feel that your are in an outdoor courtyard. The food matches the ambience

    The room we wanted was gone, so they upgraded us to a conceirge floor, where we had wine, Chinese, "snacks" and lots of good company. We were very happy there and would go again.

    Very Feng-shue

    from

    Nicely appointed, nice location, tastefully decorated with an impressive reception area. We had no view. The self parking is underground. Located in china town and near the old city. While we enjoyed the stay, for the money I think I liked where we stayed earlier in our trip - Hotel-Suites Le Faubourg

    Worst trip ever!

    from

    I planned a two day trip in Montreal. When I arrived the manager told me they overbooked and I did not have a room. Why was I the one bumped??? I called Thursday night to confirm (just two days before I was due to arrive) and was told my room was reserved. Why would I be told my room was confirmed and then get bumped??? Is the the way all customers are treated. You did book me at another hotel, but for one night. So I had to worry what was going to happen the next night. I was only staying two days. Why should I have to spend my two days in Montreal worrying where I was going to stay? Also, why should I have to pack and unpack twice in two days??? Finally, your manager expected me to walk to the other hotel he reserved for me. I had to ask for a cab. Sincerely, Al Croce

    Not suitable for young children

    from

    Because of the lay-out of the Reception area, Bar & restaurant the hotel is not suitable for young children. The only dining facilities offered by the hotel are in an area beautifully interspersed with canals filled with carp! Very attractive, but, with little or no rail around it, potentially very dangerous! We stayed with our 3 year old grand-daughter who constantly wanted to watch the fish and could quite understand why we were so nervous!! Hardly the relaxing break it was supposed to be. Parents beware!!
