... then went back to her place. A few tiny snow flakes drifted down on us as we got off the bus- but that's nothing compared to the predicted snowstorm. Oh yeah, on the way to the pub Cammie pointed out some giant baubles (frosted glass with colored lights inside) hanging from the trees. She told me that their color can be changed via an iPhone app! How cool is that- setting the street lights to your personal preference! (Until the next person with an app comes along that ...

I popped into a chapel and saw the big Notre Dame from the outside, but I didn't go in. I had a whole other day to explore more the next day – or so I thought. I ended up back at the hostel at 6 just as the other three had arrived from their day. They had just booked – woe – ...

One day, the media powers-that-be will decide to give me my own travel show and pay me millions of dollars to traipse around the world getting rich and famous.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Germain Montreal
A very classy lovenest
We were fortunate to spent 9 days at Le Germain in summer 2004, and with its exquisite apartment style it became our home from home. I have never found it so hard to leave a hotel: the ambience, the luscious cotton sheets, the photographs on the wall, the leather couch, and that sensational bathroom. .....all will be revealed to those who venture there.
We had been told Le Germain was a stylish boutique hotel and this was true. The lobby and rooms were decorated in that favorite modern palette of dark brown, beige and cream. Our room was enormous and comfortable.
An excellent experience
My wife, 15-month-old son and I recently spent a long weekend at Hotel Le Germain in Montreal. The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly. The concierge was especially help in recommending restaurants and walking tours. Our room was large (ask for a room ending in 06 when you check in) and comfortable. We would definitely stay here on our next visit to Montreal.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Le Germain from August 15 to August 19, 2004. We loved it! It is located in the heart of downtown Montreal, close to the metro, the restaurants, and all the other downtown attractions. The staff were very attentive and welcoming. The room was beautiful - big and nicely decorated. It does not have a feel of a typical hotel room.
Loved the Hotel Le Germain!
We stayed at Le Germain last summer with our two teenage sons. The staff was excellent! They set my husband and one son up on a white water rafting afternoon! Each evening the concierge made reservations at the most wonderful restaurants in the city with the best tables in the house! Our rooms were spotless. The music on the stereo welcomed us each evening after a long day of sightseeing. This hotel has managed to do the impossible......to please both parents and teenagers! Bravo!
Having hear a lot about this place maybe I was expecting too much...
room was dirty: carpets, desk chair, bed sheets had finger prints on them, restaurant. Restaurant staff quite abrasive. Great location, but I don't get what all the hype is about.
Le Germain was the perfect spot for a truly relaxing Montreal weekend, with superb service, amenities and a great location. The understated decor, the truly comfortable, sumptious beds and beautiful, well-appointed bathrooms made for a great retreat.
Hot, comfy, great sevice, all you want for a beautiful stay! I travel a lot and that's a must! 2 times bravo!
Great Service, Great Location
I am a regular traveller to North America and am often disappointed with the service at expensive hotels. I have found an excellent one though in Montreal. This hotel was the best I have stayed in ever. The staff are fantastic, the location is great and the arty decor a joy to be around. I will definitely stay there whenever I am in Montreal and will seek out their hotels in other locations as well.
