Historical Traveler Reviews L'Appartement Hotel Montreal
Great hotel, great location
Stayed with 2 children for 5 nights in August 2004 in a 1 bedroom suite. Found the location very handy for metro and bus access and easy short walk to St Catherine's Street and city centre. Very good supermarket about 5 minutes walk away as well as small convenience shop a block or so further on. The staff were all excellent-courteous, friendly and very, very helpful. The breakfast room was lovely and bright and the variety of breakfast food and drinks was fabulous. The suites were spotlessly clean, the kitchen was wonderfully equipped including brand new toaster, coffee maker etc. Roof top pool and terrace were lovely. We would definitely recommend anyone to stay here as it is wonderful value.
Very happy w/L'Appartment
We stayed here for four nights in August, 2004 with a family of six in a two bedroom. Room had two bedrooms + pull-out sofa. The room was clean. The front desk staff was very helpful. About two blocks to subway (McGill) and St. Catherine St. is close by. The continental breakfast made it easy when getting ready for a day of sight seeing and the breakfast staff were very nice.
Fantastic hotel, a great choice!
A really great hotel in a great location. We stayed there for over two weeks while relocating to Montreal. I highly recommend the small price of upgrading to the 1 BR suite from the studio, althought the studio was also very nice.
The kitchens were very handy but with all the great and affordable restaurants nearby, you'll be hardpressed to find yourself cooking that often!
The staff were very accomodating and friendly and I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to the great city of Montreal, my new hometown!
The only thing keeping this hotel from being 4 star is the lack of an in-house restaurant, but again, this is a foodie town anyway. The pharmacy located next door is very handy too!
Wait for renovations and ask about AC!!!
We stayed here based on a trip advisor review which compared this hotel favorably with the Delta across the street where we usually stay. This is NOT the Delta. We followed a reviewer's advice and asked for a renovated room which, we were told, was not guaranteed. It also did not happen. The 4th floor one bedroom suite we got was shabby and dark (twilight in the bathroom) More importantly, there was a barely functioning air conditioner tucked behind the desk in the livingroom and no air conditioning in the bedroom. The ceiling fan did nothing because it worked correctly only on the winter setting where hot ceiling air is forced down. In the summer position it shook and clicked. Also, the advertised high speed internet connection did not yet exist.
We complained to the desk clerk (manager on duty?) who remained seated off to the side throughout and simply told us that because of the Jazz Festival there was not a better room anywhere in the hotel for the full 5 day duration of our stay. Without checking he insisted the same was true with other sister properties in the city.
The next day, when we approached his superior, no fewer that three options suddenly opened up and we were first offered a downgrade to a studio (but on a renovated floor) and a renovated 1 bedroom. We couldn't use a studio and, since all one bedroom suites here lack AC in the bedroom, we didn't want to re-pack just to move to another hot room so we declined these offers. We were then offered a two bedroom suite on a renovated floor. Two bedroom suites here consist of one air conditioned bedroom and one with just a ceilinig fan as well as generous air conditioned living and dining areas and a fully equipped kitchen. We accepted. The suite was bright, roomy, and cheerful. Our overall opinion of the hotel would have been completely different if we had started here and had not had to deal with the indifference of the first manager on duty. While his marching orders might well have required him to deny the availablity of other rooms, he could have shown more concern merely by getting out of his chair and approaching the check in counter to deal with a dissatisfied client.
I would stay here again only if a renovated suite was available and guaranteed. The pool was slightly cloudy throughout our stay and the elevators are shabby, slow, and cramped, but overall the suite was nice enough to make up for this (Far nicer than similarly priced accomodations at the Delta) The hotel would be wise to renovate the elevators next so that at least the guests on renovated floors get a more consistent impression of the property.
The hotel has recently added a continental breakfast which is nicely stocked and well-tended in a bright, comfortable room next to the lobby. Other that my first day experienced, the staff (including the first gentlement) was friendly and helpful for the duration of the stay.
Our 'new' favourite hotel
Just got back from a wonderful 6 nights at L'appartement Hotel. We have always stayed at the Delta Montreal on President Kennedy and decided to try L'appartement this time. (It is across the street from the Delta on Sherbrooke.) I liked the layout of the rooms and the fact that all rooms have kitchens(I like to cook breakfast). The room was quite large comfortable and clean. The kitchen was very adequate for my needs, and the balcony overlooking Sherbrooke was a great place to sit and watch Montreal go by. One surprise was that while we stayed at L'appartement, our car got to stay at the Delta! The parking was full at L'appartement. The staff were very friendly and attentive to the only problem we encountered during our stay. I was impressed with how quickly the problem was taken care of. The only warning I will pass along is this: To properly adjust the water temperature in the shower, it is advisable that you have a Master's Degree in Fluid Thermodynamics!Will we stay here again?Absolutely! Would we recommend it to others? You Bet! Sorry Delta, we have a new favourite.
Great place to stay!
We loved staying here! We have had a studio and a 1 BR apt. The inside parking is a great way to go, and you can beat the price for all the convenience. Everything was very clean and you can't beat the location.
The staff is more than helpful.
You can't do better in the budget category!
My cousin and I stayed there last summer (2003). The room we had was extremely clean, had a nice balcony that looked over Sherbrooke (a tony shopping street in a safe area) and was walking distance to just about every neighborhood I wanted to check out. I'm a walker though, so if you aren't inclined to mile-long strolls, feel free to take one of the inexpensive taxis or the clean public transit. We were on a modest budget and appreciated the spotless kitchenette, where we fixed two meals a day so we could splurge on the third. (Montreal is a great foodie town!) After a day of running around I took a sauna and a swim in the rooftop pool which has a nice view of downtown. I loved this hotel and I love Montreal. It's closer and cheaper than Europe is right now, and the people/restaurants/bars there are super. Go Canada!
This Place Rules!
I have stayed in literally 10 different hotels in Montreal and this one is by far my favorite! We always get the 2 bedroom suite. It's like your own little condo with a small kitchen and dining area. Two private bedrooms with a nice comfortable Queen size in each, (maybe their King I don't know). The living room is great. A reclining chair, and a couch that pulls out into an extra bed. Up to 5 or 6 people no problem. The rooms are always clean and nice. Keep in mind this is not 5 star luxury, more like 3 1/2 stars. But the rooms are great and the prices are excellent! I have stayed here several times and never had a problem.
A good choice
Stayed here for 3 nights in July 2003. We had a one bedroom apt, which was clean and comfortable. While we did have a few minor complaints, i.e. noisy fridge, no container to make juice, hood fan over stove didn't work, that kind of thing, over all it was a good accomodation.
The staff were very friendly, and the view from the roof top patio was beautiful. The room was a nice place to come back to after a long day of sight seeing. there is a Provigo supermarket just a few blocks away to buy groceries at, McGill University campus is a few blocks away, Metro is close by, VIA rail train station is a few blocks away.... in other words, the location couldn't be better. The Four Poins Sheraton is right next store and the Hilton is across the street.
The place for me! (and you)
This apartment hotel is a find! The location on Sherbrooke street is great, easy access to Metro and restaurants/shopping. The hotel is 17 stories with an indoor pool and sauna on the top floor. There are a few workout machines like treadmill, etc. For long-term guests there is laundry facilities. The rooms are described as 1 1/2, 2 1/2, 3 1/2 but are actually studio/1 BR/2 BR. Each have a kitchen with full size stove, fridge, microwave and everything else you might want down to the salt/pepper and a corkscrew. Coffee pot, toaster,dishcloths and detergent come along as well so if you are a family you cannot go wrong here. The 1 and 2 BR units have full living room and dining area. Units on the front of the building open onto a balcony on Sherbrooke St. Bath is well ventilated and has plenty of towels. Staff at the reception are excellent. Biggest complaint would be the 2 small elevators that you have to share with the maids and their carts during the morning hours. There are rate reductions for stays longer than 7 days. All the comforts of home. Try this one for sure.

went up into the skyline car and sat in hope of getting some interesting photos
looking along the roof of the train as it snakes its way along the track.
However the line in this area is not very interesting at all and was simply

We tried some maple syrup products at a small maple syrup museum. The taffy was great - served on crushed ice. You wrap it around a paddle pop stick or it can be put into vanilla ice cream. We tried it over the ice.

There was a fascinating exhibition on Napoleon and his personality cult, I saw some Picassos, Monets, Rembrandt's, Van Dongen's, Van Dyck's and more. I concentrated on the permanent exhibition and decided against seeing the temporary Rodin exhibition.

The morning was a bit rough but I made plans with Scott last night to go rock climbing with him. I met up with him at the gym which seemed like miles away. Kind of expensive too- $17 for bouldering and shoe hire.
Wow I'm weak compared to how I used to climb, but it was so good to finally get back on a wall. We climber around for as long as we could before he had to go to work and I had to stop because I was just out of puff.
