Noreen dropped us off to catch the bus to Ottawa Cenral Station giving us plenty of opportunity for some people watching as the commuters made their way to work. The train journey to Montreal was less than 2 hours with nothing special about the scenery on which to comment. Upon arrival, the sun made a welcome appearance making the short (in my …

... going to a hot country I'll pack a more comfortable pair of walking sandals, too, since I find it uncomfortable to do any serious walking in flip-flops. The optional ones are the little black heels. Hey, I'm five foot one, so sue me if I like a couple of inches of extra height now and again. If I know I won't have much occasion to dress up, I'll skip these and just manage with the flip-flops or hiking shoes.
... was plenty of snow to tube on. Skiing - no lessons available, Ice Skating - embarrassed to say I've never tried! Only thing left - Snow Shoeing. Both Linda and I rocked the snow shoes! We were wondering why we didn't invest in a pair for this entire trip. We hiked our way off the recommended path and over to the Cimetiere de Notre-Dame-Des-Neiges. Even covered in snow the cemetery was breathtaking. Of course, I could not go all week watching the fluffy, white snow ...
... be Little Italy week in Montreal so the street had vendors and everything Italian there including a bunch of old and new school Fiats. Our itinerary had us going back here tomorrow.
Back at the hotel, we were looking at our dinner options. The concierge suggested a quaint restaurant in Old Montreal called Les Pyrenees. We were expecting more classic French cuisine but this restaurant had more of a Spanish flavor. My meal ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Candlewood Suites Montreal Centre-Ville
En general, este es un buen hotel si quieres una cocina y salir por Montreal sin coche. Las habitaciones son espaciosas y tienen una cocina agradable. La cocina tiene los platos y utensilios de cocina mínimos, pero no mucho más (por ejemplo tráete tus propios filtros de café, sal, pimienta, etc.). La habitación que conseguí era la que llamaban: suite de un dormitorio, pero no tenía ningún dormitorio, sólo una habitación grande con 2 camas, escritorio y cocina. ¡Lo odio, cuando los hoteles etiquetan aparentemente como suites con habitación, pero sólo son habitaciones grandes normales de hotel! La ubicación es muy buena. Puedes caminar tranquilamente al casco antiguo de Montreal, al barrio chino y a 2 estaciones de metro, dichos metros recorren la mayoría de la ciudad. Hay un gran almacén de alimentación a dos manzanas de distancia para coger comida y suministros, porque el hotel no tiene restaurante. La vecindad circundante parecía un poco deteriorada, pero no se sentía peligrosa.
Overall, this is a good hotel if you want a kitchen and want to get around Montreal without a car. The rooms are spacious and have a nice kitchen. The kitchen has minimal plates and cookware but not much else (such as bring your own coffee filters, salt, pepper, etc.). The room I got was called a 1 bedroom suite but it had no bedroom. Just one big room with 2 beds, desk, and kitchen. I hate it when hotels deceptively label rooms as suites with bedroom but are just a large regular hotel room! The location is very good. You can easily walk to Old Montreal, Chinatown, and 2 Metro stations where the Metro covers most of the city. There is a large grocery store 2 blocks away to pick up food and supplies since this hotel has no restaurant. The immediate neighborhood seemed run down, but it did not feel dangerous.
Primero, lo bueno. Una habitación espaciosa, con un una cocina americana, una cama cómoda y un cuarto de baño nuevo e intachable. Es difícil imaginar una habitación mejor en Montreal para el precio.
First, the good. A spacious room with a kitchenette, a comfortable bed, and a new, spotless bathroom. Hard to imagine a better room in Montreal for the price.
The suite is fully furnished, with great bed, nice kitchen and living room, and big bathroom. Very confortable. Everything was new and clean. It doesn't have ammenities as breakfast or room service, but if you don't mind making your own meals and doing your bed its ok. The nearest subway station is about 5-10 mins walking (St Laurent), you can also go by walking to Old Montreal (10 mins) and to some great streets full of good restaurants (10-15 mins).
The front desk employees were all very nice and helpful.
Excellent Value and Great Room
Excellent experience at fleabag rates! Spacious, clean wonderful room with stunning view of fireworks over old Montreal. Highly recommend. Only odd item was that we had the strange experience of a middle of the night fire alarm, which was fortunately a false alarm. But all was well and we slept in later.
Easy walks to Old Montreal, Chinatown, and St Catherine Street.
We stayed for two nights on the end of a two week family vacation . What a great place for a family. If we ever go back to Montreal again , we will be staying at this hotel. We have three children (ages 16, 13, and 11) . The hotel provided a roll away cot for our 16 yr old, the 13 and 11 yr old shared the large sofa bed, we had the separate bedroom with a huge comfy bed. Compared to the other hotels we had stayed in during the vacation, this one was by far the most roomy and comfortable.
I will definately stay here again. The hotel has been recently renovated, the rooms are very spacious, clean and come with a fully equipped kitchen. The 5 of us stayed in one room and it was very comfortable. The service was great too! All this for an unbeatable nightly rate of $99!
We were a couple of gay friends who stayed here during the outgames in montreal after we were warned off another hotel at the last minute. We paid AUD$160 pn for 10 nights and it was good to be able to have times when we could cook for ourselves. I wouldn't recommend if you are only in town for a couple of days, but is good for longer stays. The furnishings were fine and the aircon was particularly welcome. The rooms were not serviced every day. Hi speed network cable was great for my laptop and the location was close enough to everything. Would recommend for people who are needing longer stays and who don't mind fending for themselves a bit. The desk staff in the hotel were generally hopeless (unaware that there was a guest laundry) and the reality is that the place is run as an adjunct to the Holiday Inn next door. Having said that I would stay there again if I was in montreal for more than a week, but if shorter - would go to a hotel.
We stayed on August for 2 nights into a very spacious apartment very clean and nice decorated with a fully equiped kitchen. Overall a very good value for the money we spent. It is located in downtown Montreal probably a good location for someone who would like to visit this part of the city. Staff very friendly. Breakfast is not included and in you cannot even buy it because there is no restaurant within this hotel. However, there are lots of places around where to take it. One inconvenience in my opinion is that they have only Valet Parking (in fact this is within the Days Inn hotel that shares the same building with this hotel) and even if you only need something from your car, you have to ask them to bring it in front of the hotel and then to take it back in the undergorund parking (and tho bring your car depending how many are waiting in the same time might be a 15 minutes wait). If you plan to use multiple times a day your car, might be a serious inconvenience.
