Our last morning in Quebec City, we headed for a buffet breakfast at the Vielle Maison de Spaghetti. The prospect of 'all you can eat' appealed to more than one of our Eagles! The fresh air and hiking up and down the hills of Quebec City certainly whetted some appetites.
After breakfast, it was just a short walk over to Place Desjardins, …
Was in Montreal last month to watch the Canadian GP and Wow - Grand Prix weekend in Montreal is a blast! It's certainly not a weekend for the faint-of-heart. This is the weekend when the F1 and its entourage come to Montreal for the Grand Prix du Canada. This entourage consists (allegedly) of hundreds of thousand of F1 crew and tourists along for …
Who says Friday the 13th is bad luck? The Globetrotters don't believe in bad luck, so we weren't a bit deterred about continuing our discovery of the lovely city of Montreal today. After walking around the underground city yesterday, we decided to tackle the city by Metro today. We figured there wouldn't be many sites to see since the Metro runs …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Montreal
I have 3 complaints about this hotel.1-The concierge gave some questionable advice, that was undoubtedly aimed at serving the status quo, and which we discovered was probably outdated advice. We asked him for the name of some great steak restaurants and we were told that one of them was Moishes Steakhouse. Well, a hundred dollars after visiting this great restaurant (not!) we were extremely disappointed in the concierge s advice. It seems he needs to revisit this place and see for himself what you get for the prices. One big slab of bleeding meat (they don t even serve prime rib at Moishes!) and you have to pay extra for any small portion of vegetables. Sorry but where we come from (Alberta) you can buy much better quality of beef and they throw in the vegetables for free (wow eh?) and it s a third of the price, at least! All this to tell you NOT to trust the concierge s opinion on matters of fine dining. Also must mention that the concierge (Ivan) was himself a rather snooty fellow, which I found out later when I complained about:2-the charges for useage of their in-house computer. I had used their private computer room for two days before I noticed the miniscule signage hidden below the monitor (looked like legalese print). It said the charge is $15 for 30 min of useage/Internet browsing. So much for courtesy services in a hotel! It was a frustrating experience, because no one bothered to mention the charges to me when I inquired about their courtesy computer. I had to go thru the assistant manager in order to delete the two days worth of charges I had unknowingly incurred.3-Lastly, when we booked the hotel room, we had asked about the firmness of their beds, and they assured us we would have their firmest beds. When we arrived, we got a queen sized bed and, this is no exaggeration, we lay down and almost sank about three inches. It reminded me of something you would get at a cheap roadside motel. When we asked the front desk about their beds, they then told us that all their beds were of the same quality and we could therefore not find a better bed to transfer to. What a disappointment.The best things about this hotel were that it was centrally located and in the same building as the Baton Rouge restaurant. Stick with the Baton Rouge, if you are not looking for snooty waiters or over-priced food, but just want a tasty meal at a good price. Next time, I think we will stay somewhere at which we will be made to feel more welcome and which doesn t nickel and dime you for courtesy services .
To start, the Wyndham was very recently sold to the Hyatt corporation and the outside signage has changed, so you aren't lost if you get there after booking through Wyndham and finding a Hyatt. The hotel itself is in an ideal location, directly across from the Chinatown area, approximately 6 blocks from Old Montreal and directly over top of the Metro. Perfect for a tourist to explore the entire city on foot and by metro. A great starting point. The hotel is above average but not sparkling new....I'd say close to 15-20 years old interior but well kept. The pool area is nice and relaxing with lots of sun shining through. Make sure to check the hours though because they aren't as long as I expected. The rooms are a nice size and well laid out but I warn you now....don't order room service without looking at the cost. I looked it up in the menu and a basic bacon, egg, toast, and coffee was somewhere in the $15.00 range plus service fee for delivery or some such nonsense...HIGHLY OVERPRICED!!! Who would order it??? As well unlike Wyndham, you must pay for internet access, local phone calls, and those little extras usually offered to Wyndham By Request members. A bit disappointing but oh well.Front desk was very accomodating and friendly, with everyone we came across knowing english quite well. No complaints about the staff behind the desk or the pool personnel. Very knowledgeable of area.The "bad" part of the review has to do with the hotel allowing a group of teenagers (17 and 18 year olds) to stay there unsupervised for 3 days during our stay in late Dec. 03. They ran over the hotel, just causing a great deal of grief with late night parties in the halls and such. After complaining to the security detail, it was stopped but I just can't believe they would allow a "frat" type booking to even occur. They had to know it would happen. Caused some problems with getting elevators in a timely fashion because of monopolization by large groups and I'm sure they did some damage to the rooms as well....ugh....just really not good to allow that much unsupervisation with the lower drinking age. Just asking for trouble.Lastly, the parking is not cheap....they over price this as well but know people will pay because of the area. I paid $18.00 per 24 hours in the underground or if you wish to have it valeted, it will cost $24.00 per 24 hours! But with valet, you have in and out privleges. Depends on what you have planned I guess.So in conclusion, great location, overpriced in some areas and bad booking while we were there but overall would certainly return.If you have questions, don't hesitate to email me.Kelly
I have been a frequent visitor had the Wyndham for over 10 years. I stayed both on business and leisure and have had anything but good experiences. It's always been a great hotel; "Le Méridien", the prestigious european chain, until 1996 then it was shortly owned by the Desjardins movement 'til 1998 (that owns the complex) and finally taken over by Wyndham in 1998. Since that, Wyndham has invested over 20M $ in renovations I believe and I can tell (having stayed there when it was a Méridien) that when they refurbished the public areas and guest rooms in 2000, they certainly did a great job. The staff is not especially "friendly" but sure does the job. The location is, in my opinion, is the very best in downtown Mtl because it is within walking distance of the Old-Port, the Resaturants on St-Denis and has direct access to the subway system without even getting outside. It's very clean, not exceptionally luxurious but still, quite "chic". The only con is that their prices have gone up dramatically in the last 2 years and apart from business travel, I stay elsewhere because of that. But sincerly, neither the Queen Elizabeth, the Sheraton Centre or the Crowne Plaza beats the Wyndham's location. And curiously, all the rooms I got had Mini-Bars/Fridge so maybe you have to ask.
We stayed here in june 2003 paid $59 thru priceline . once you park here no need to drive hotel sits on top of a mall. in bad weather no need to go outside room very nice good pool and hottub . front desk staff somewhat rude. DONT EXCHANGE CURRENCY AT THIS HOTEL> they charge a premium to do this. so much for customer service. for the money all in all a good deal
I got a great deal on Hotwire ($62 US) a night for the Wyndham and was so pleasantly surprised at the quality of the service and the hotel itself that I had to write a review.The staff was friendly and catered to our every need..one day in fact housekeeping called to see if we wanted our room cleaned and when we said we didn't they said well how about we just tidy it up when you are gone. Room service was friendly and efficient. In fact they even call as soon as they dispurse the delivery so you can be prepared for it.Location was amazing..Large mall underneath the hotel where you could spend a lot of time shopping, eating or grabbing a cup of coffee or even a drink. Around the corner were outdoor cafes, 2block walk into town where all the shopping was and 15 minute walk down to the Port where the art galleries and Fine restaurants were located. 10 minute cab ride ($15 Canadian) to the Casino.I had an amazing stay in Montreal and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away for a while but yet doesn't have a lot of time to spend traveling far far away.The Wyndham was amazing and I would definitely go back there again.
I recently stayed at the Wyndham Montreal, after finding a fantastic (US$62/night) rate on Hotwire.
The Wyndham Montreal might just have one of the best locations for a hotel in Downtown Montreal. It is within walking distance to Chinatown, Old Montreal, and is situated right on Jeanne Mance and St-Catherine.
Comfortable hotel in a great location
The Wyndham is not a luxury hotel, but the rooms are large and comfortable. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to major museums, shopping areas and the Old Port. The hotel has a nice indoor heated pool, perfect for relaxing after a long day of walking.
Wyndham, very good
The hotel was just fine. Clean, quiet and room equipped with what you may need, but no mini bar. eventhough advertised. Fabulous breakfast buffet and restaurant staff was polite and professional. Front desk had one sour apple. The gift shop was better than most. Hotel has a small, uninteresting mall below and the Baton Rouge restaurant in the mall was great for a quick bite and stays open very late. Taxi service is available and attendent friendly and helpful. If you are going to a concert or show at Place Des Arts, you can walk underground. If I had to stay there again it is fine, but I prefer a little more luxury.
On our first trip to Montreal 9/12/02, we stayed at the Wyndham (all the good boutique hotels were booked). For a rate of approx. $88 a night, the hotel is a great bargain. Situated well, at the corner of St. Catherine and Jeanne Mance, right across the street from the Modern Art Museum, and part of the Complexe Desjardins (a large underground mall), the hotel is comfortable and clean! Rooms are nicely decorated (although there are no mini-fridges). The staff is friendly and professional and I can't say enough about the Concierge desk (Ivan and Francine) who made our stay so enjoyable with all their help with reservations, information, etc.
