Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Maritime Plaza Montreal
Not as bad as these reviews say...
The funny thing is I read these reviews before I left for Montreal, but after I booked the hotel. I was a bit nervous afterwards and was about to cancel the reservations but decided to check it out. The outside of the hotel doesn't look as nice as the DRAWN out picture they show, but then again, this picture was DRAWN, soo... The parking was pricey... It was $38.50 canadian money for 3 nights. The hotel lobby, bar, pool area was definately smaller than I imagined, but then again, I wasn't there to hang out in the hotel lobby! The elevators did take a little while, but you deal... The rooms are okay, the beds are comfortable and we were happier then we thought we would be. PLEASE exchange your money as soon as you get there or you will be ripped off.... Lastly, you are right in between St. Catherine and Rene Levesque which is a great location for shopping, eating, dancing, bars and all of that good stuff.. Actually, we were soo happy with the location of the hotel, we just booked another trip in March (We just got back 1 day ago). I would say this hotel is alright, no Hyatt, Mariott or timeshares, but not a bad place to spend for a couple day...
Not as advertised...
Hotel was OK at best. The online pictures were all of these fancy rooms with plush white comforters... well, not what we got. Instead of the single queen bed that was requested, we unexpectedly got two double beds, which was a pain. THe "comforters" were anything but, a couple other amenities were left out, and a couple unexpected carpet stains were included free of charge. The location was fine, but some of the hotel staff members were downright mean at best. By the way, bring your own bath robe because it's $80 to get one from them (and they won't be nice about it)! All in all, the hotel served our purposes for the weekend, but on my next visit to Montreal I'll be sure to find another place to stay! Only +... the parking was decent... for $25 i could go in and out as much as I wanted over 2 days, and though it was a tight garage it was at least warm and had an elevator to the hotel lobby/room floors.
Recommended to friends
I have recommended this hotel to two friends who came to visit Montreal (one from Boston, one from New York) and am recommending it to another friend coming from Nova Scotia. I was shocked to see the negative reviews. Both my friends and I found the accomodations and amenities top-quality and the rates excellent. Will continue to recommend it highly!
This was the best hotel i have stayed in for a long time. They had no rooms left except for executive suites, and they upgraded me with no extra charge. Staff was also very friendly.
Please don't waste your money.
The hotel had no parking, the staff was rude and the rooms were very small. My husband and I had a very bad experience overall. The hotel picture on the website looked nothing like the hotel when we arrived, they claim to be a 4 star hotel, which I believe was a 2 star.
Please don't stay here
My terrible birthday experience at this hotel
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for my birthday and it was the worst experience. The hotel the parking was full, we had to go to the sister hotel. The gentleman that gave us directions, gave us the wrong directions to the parking lot. After a long night of driving, that is the last thing you want to deal with!!!Married couples!! Do yourself a favor, save yourself a fight, don't stay at this hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!It is not tourist friendly, the staff is extemely rude! When we talked to the manager he was very indifferent. Overpriced for a small room!
Good Location if you like to walk to downtown locations...ie: Rue St.Catherine. Planitarium, subways stations. Parking at the hotel was a bit on the pricey side. Staff could have been a bit friendlier. Overall the rooms were very nice and worth the money. We'd stay there again.
Give me a break
This was my first visit to Montreal and I'm not sure who the "anonymous" guests are, but my stay at the Maritime Plaza was marginal at best and I was forced to move to a different hotel after only one night.
There was only one elevator working during my stay, which was shared not only by all guests, but by staff including housekeepers, janitors, etc as well. Yet there was no sign of anyone working on the elevator nor was there any attention given to its demise.
My room was clean but small - especially for an "Executive Level" floor. The amenities were limited, though there is a small workout room on premises and a fairly decent restaurant and lounge.
The location was adequate -- not in the "center of Montreal" as I believed. The staff at check in was only mildly accomodating and not once did I receive a smile. Neither I nor my significant other felt truly welcome.
This hotel is fine for a budget hotel, but I moved to another hotel downtown for the same price and received a much better deal.
Good location & value
We visited Montreal late Sept. 2002. The hotel is a comfortable 10-12 minutes from the Via Rail Central Station. The staff was friendly and fluently bilingual. We stayed on the 4th floor and the room is nice and cozy although it's not quite "deluxe executive" as the description on ther reservation said. The bathroom is clean and spacious but lacks ventilation. The indoor pool and exercise room is good for workout. The location is excellent for shopping and dining. It really is good value and comfortable for $119 CAD per night.
Good sized rooms and well equiped with good furnishings.
An excellent hotel.
