Historical Traveler Reviews Auberge Bonaparte Montreal
I have never stayed in a place as wonderful and beautiful as this place.
Auberge Bonaparte is a spotless, very tastefully decorated inn in the heart of Old Montreal very convenient to the Metro, Notre Dame (a must see, even if you're Jewish like we are!) and the port. The desk staff is AMAZING. Very friendly and helpful, even printing out computer generated maps to eateries and attractions. I can't say enough about the desk and housekeeping staffs. Only two things prevent a 5-star rating.
1) Very smoky lobby area, which discourages hanging around in the very nice adjacent sitting room
2) Service at breakfast was nothing less than painful. This wasn't the leisurely French pace that is expected. It was inattentive and downright rude until we made our feelings known on our last day. If you can tolerate a dark dining room, sullen waiters who serve cold coffee with grounds in it, ignore what you order and bring out anything the cook dishes out, you'll be okay. The croissants are to die for, though.
Other than these two relatively minor annoyances, I highly recommend this beautiful inn to anyone who wants a great Old Montreal experience.
Give Francois at the desk our best wishes from Tennessee.
A Pleasant Surprise
After reading other reviews and deciding to stay one night as we past through,I am pleased to say our expectations were exceded.The employees were pleasant,helpfull and courteous.We found the room to be spotless and very charming.The only surprise was the parking.I was told parking was not available at the Inn,and was directed to a private lot one block down the street.When booking the room I was lead to believe parking was available at the rear of the Inn.The parking lot attendant then proceeded to tell me that I would have to pay for 2 days parking if our vehicle was there past 6:45 A.M.When I explained to him breakfast was not served before 7:00 he was not concerned.The cost was $22.00 for 1 night,when the sign said 10.00 a day.Be Prepared.
The room was beautiful and totally comfortable - everything was just perfect. The "Bonaparte" breakfast was superb - croissants are to die for. To top it all of, what a great value during the labor day weekend - $196 CAD with tax and parking per night.
Exceptional Hotel for the Sophisticated Traveler
The Auberge Bonaparte was even better than I expected. The rooms were beautiful and complete with a large marble bathroom. I really appreciated the large gorgeous floral arrangements that greeted you at the front desk. The best part was the delicious breakfast served in the Restaurant. Freshly cut orchards were cleverly displayed on each table and illuminated by a single beam of light. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I strongly recommend this hotel to the sophisticated traveler who appreciates the finer things in life.
Great Hotel and Restaurant
We loved this hotel! Located on quaint street in Old City near shops, metro, Notre Dame...The rooms were spacious, clean, with nice views. Jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was delicious and included in the room price. Staff was fabulous in helping with information on restaurants, tours etc. The restaurant for dinner was amazing. A great get away from the big hotels.
Great room great breakfast great location
The room was huge with a spacious bathroom and whirlpool tub. The breakfast was fabulous. We will definatley stay here again!
Great Value + Wonderful Food
We visited in Aug - Sep 2002. The room was marvelous - spacious, well furnished, view of Basilica Notre Dame. Bathroom was @ five star level! The breakfast that goes with the room is varied, tasty and filling! But best of all is the very helpful, cooperative and customer-priented staff. Would go back in a heartbeat. Location is excellent for sightseeing.
Beautiful room in the heart of the old city. A full breakfast included and a helpful staff. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
Stayed at Bonaparte for 5 nights. Medium sized room but spacious, 3 windows, nice furniture, breakfast included. Hotel staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast is in the restaurant downstairs and is worth the room price alone! Great location in the heart of Vieux Montreal. Definately recommended.

I'm home! Back in the cold and snow -- erm, freezing rain. Anyone miss me?
Free upgrades are awesome
My trip home began yesterday evening in Cancun. I got to the airport just after 6, and checked in. When I booked this ticket, I somehow scored a free business class upgrade for my return flight. Hey, not complaining. Anyway, that gave me access to the business lounges. The one in Cancun was crowded and didn't have any food except peanuts, but it had free ...
... in itself when you're carrying your luggage with you. Up and down multiple flights of stairs, we also had to get through a turnstile. Apparently I'm more uncoordinated than I thought, and in the one revolution you get when you tag onto the system, I only managed to get my luggage through (and not myself). I ended up having to jump the gate, which almost had me fall flat on my face. Luckily I didn't fall and no one got that on tape, so all is right with the world.

... our destination—St. Louis. Time to head to the Bag Claim area and see if the bags arrived—hurray our bags came with us—and if they arrived without any major damage (mine now has some broken plastic edges but nothing significant). You may ask why we would worry—well the airlines do seem to take great pleasure in damaging baggage—one sees many bags arriving at their destination with huge tears and broken pieces on them. What are they ...
... still to make it 3 out of 3 overseas trips that you join me on!! Montreal was a nice place to have spent my birthday - especially with a dorm buddy being shocked at my age and saying he thought I was 29! Result!! In final summary then, I thought it would be good have some criteria on which to judge each place along my route. So here goes (1-10, 10 being highest): PICTURESQUE: 7 FRIENDLY: 6 (8 if you're a fluent French speaker!!) STUFF TO DO: 8 SOCIAL: 7 TOTAL: ...
***Today we find out if our hero can overcome the winds, the weather and the road to make his anticipated and magnificent return to Montreal in time for the skate demo at 6pm. He will have to brave the treacherous and wild onramps of highway 40 to even hope to achieve his goal. His fate is in god's hands now, and no person, priest or prophet can tell if he will complete the journey in time. Can he, nay, WILL he do it?! Let's listen ...
