... for a French-Canadian team. The first person to refer to the Canadiens as the 'Habs' was the owner of Madison Square Garden who thought that was what the 'H' on the Canadiens jersey stood for - this was an error - the logo (C rapped around H) actually stands for 'Club De Hockey Canadien'.

I think one of the very best experiences of travelling is meeting new people. In Montréal we have been so fortunate to stay in a beautiful apartment full of fantastic people! To say nothing of the most amazing location! If we had tried, we could never had created the experience we have been gifted with over the four days we have been here. Thank you to Julien, Audrey, Caro, Jon, and Caro for welcoming us so warmly ...

Historical Traveler Reviews W Montreal
This hotel is definitely the place to be for the trendy, young, and well-to-do crowd. The atmosphere is awesome, the staff are all super-friendly and super-helpful. It also helps that they're mostly the same age and the guests in the hotel.
I invited my girlfriend for her birthday and we stayed at the W Montreal for one night. The room was nice and spacious. About the bathroom, nice design, actually there is a glass wall who separate the shower and the bedroom, so you can see in the room easily. We appreciated our room and the hotel. If you want to have a wonderful night try the W.
W hotels consistently have service issues, and this one is no exception, from the rude bell staff that pointed at the concierge when I asked for the nearest ATM to the ridiculous overbilling that I am still trying to resolve, W just does not know how to treat its customers. The rooms are interesting but not up to the level of other Montreal boutique hotels like the Gault or Germain. There is no wall between the bedroom and the bathroom, just a bright blue curtain that provides no privacy. The beds, as always, are fantastic. But great linens do not make a hotel. To the inevitable wannabe-hipster criticism that always follows a negative review, about how it's creative and I should just go wrap myself in a floral bedspread at my local Holiday Inn, you're missing the point. Modern design and good service can go hand-in-hand, evidenced by the hotels I mentioned above and a number of other Ws, Sofitels, and Park Hyatts. W Montreal misses the mark in a big way. In Montreal, stay at a boutique hotel or try the Sofitel on Sherbrooke.
We just returned from three days at the W. My husband, two sons and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was beautiful and the view was great. It was a large room but not very private in respect to bathroom facilities. ( I am the only girl in the family and it would have been nice to close the bathroom door!) As it is the only divider between the main bathroom area and the living area was a curtain. I love nice linens and I have to say that these were very comfortable.
W montreal - not worth the price
Stayed at w last saturday night. was not impressed with level of service. yes its very trendy and high tech (staff wears head sets and most look under 25 yrs old) - but you want to relax not feel like your in a club. restaurant otto was hyper expensive while food was mediocre.
rooms are nice yet have a cold feel. Wouldnt stay there again.
I lived in Montreal for 6 years - and the thing I have missed most about the city since I left is the down-to-earth, beautiful people who are interested in meeting people and just having a good time.
One of the Best Hotels in Montreal
I just went to the W this past new years the weather happened to be quite nice for that time of year. This W's lobby surpased any other that I have seen of course it is trendy and hip and not always to everyones liking but it was wonderful. The staff is estute of the area and pays much attention to you while the concierge is very nice and helpful too. The room is gorgeous but very open(not quite a family hotel room) the only thing that seperates the room from the bathroom is a seethrough blue curtain even if closed u can see through a hole on the left wall when u walk in to your hotel room. The view is amazing it is of the buisness district and accross the street from the metro Square-Victoria. All in all it was a great stay.
We just spent the Holiday weekend at the new W Montreal and had a wonderful time. We spent last Christmas at the St. James (truly outstanding!), but thought we would try the W this year since it is new and we're always up for something different. We have stayed at many W properties around the world and are generally underwhelmed by the service. The W Montreal, on the other hand was exceptional. Everyone was extremely friendly and accomodating, from the valet to the front desk and management. We spent the weekend in an "urban suite," which I guess is the equivalent of a junior suite. The room was huge and on a corner with large windows all around. It was remarkably warm for a W room and the bathroom was great with a huge soaking tub, large separate rain shower (with blue tinted glass "voyeur" wall looking into the bedroom), double vessel sinks, separate toilet and Waterworks towels.
Excellent service, sometimes exagerated, room was big, nice impecable king bed, beautiful white and soft sheets, bathrooms were also big (like another room) and well designed with aveda products. TV,DVD,VCR,CD player all in perfect condition, room service also excellent. The Hotel just opened so the Spa wasn't working and the Gym wasn't totally ready (understandable but they should say that on their web site). Staff was very helpful, sometimes it seemed that they were trying too hard to be too nice. The lobby and the bars were very modern (over the top), no Restaurant was working at the time, but they had a good continental breakfast instead. In general the experience at the "W" was very good, the staff should just relax a little be more. About the price... remember it is a "W"!!
What can I say... BEAUTIFUL!!! BREATH TAKING!!
My room was PERFECT, every detail was attended too. The bed was heaven!!! The decor very BOUTIQUE!!! WOW, WOW!!!!
