Hotel Maritime Plaza
Travel Blogs from Montreal
Stayed at the Hotel Maritime, nice Queen Anne style room, most luxurious mattress and pillows too, shabby pool. Right in the city, walked around the shops, lu bought his Diesel shoes there. -30 degree weather so we were popping in and out of places to keep warm, responded in English to everyone so they would switch from French to English but I now …
Taking advantage of a long weekend we again saddled up and hit the highway for French Canada!!
Its a weird situation to get across as it is the same country but then it's completely different. You would think (well we did) it would be primarily or at least more of a mix or blend of Canadian and French, and there is mix but it is mainly …
We stayed at the Maritime Plaza Hotel. We booked the hotel online and was for a great price and in a great location. It was also easy to find from the highway. After checking into the room we changed and headed out to Rue Crescent which was a block away. There was a street festival taking place that day so there was plenty to do. We walked around …
... for next bus to Arlanda - 8:45. I'm here all checked in, last couple of things bought, waiting for them to open the lounge and its 10:45. Very good flight...we left about 30-40 minutes late. Ate dinner, watched Hunger Games, read and tried to sleep. MC was waiting with a lovely sign....and balloons at the house. Great to be ...
... viewing point. This was brilliant, we could see the whole of Montreal and because the weather was so glorious the view was so clear. By this point we were getting a bit peckish so we headed back into the city to grab some lunch. We left the park via another entrance/exit and back into town where we found a pub to get some food. It was a French Canadian style place which brewed its own beer on the premises. Deej, Rachel and I ordered the blonde beer in a tankard. Shellie ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Maritime Plaza Montreal
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...
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.
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.
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.
