Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn by Marriott - Montreal Downtown
We had a great stay in at the Residence Inn in downtown Montreal. The rooms were very nice, and you can't beat the hot breakfast buffet! The staff was very friendly. Also, the candy and cookies for the hotel guests was a very nice touch.
Great location close to metro. Healthy walk up to top of the lookout.
Laundry facility, pool and nice roof top patio. Lots of interesting restaurants and clubs within walking distance. Price was reasonable in April 2003. $125 per night US. this included a hot breakfast bar.
Overcourse the exhange rate is much worse a year later.
Stayed at this hotel from Jan.26/04-in the Feb2/04.The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean.Would recommend this hotel to anyone.two in the
We stayed at this hotel for ten nights at Christmas. It is a wonderful location between Sherbrooke and Catherine Streets and one block to the Peel Station and underground city. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our one bedroon suite had everything we needed with a full kitchen and living room combination. The buffet breakfast was a great convenience and there are snacks at night during the week. The hotel has a nice laundry room, pool and exercise room. We encountered no problems using the three small elevators. We had a great time and would definitely stay at this hotel again.
No complaints (and I'm pretty critical). A reliable choice for a very good price. Good location, convenient walking to lots of great restaurants, Place de Arts, 1 block from the Metro, short walk to Mont Royal Park, and fairly convenient walking to Old Town. Parking was about 3 levels below the building, so we just parked when we arrived and didn't use the car until we left. The free breakfast had plenty of choice.
Good hotel with a few problems
Have stayed in Residence Inn several times over the past two years. They have a free hot breakfast, clean rooms albeit a bit on the small side, tiny bathroom in studio, nice cozy lobby, pool is small but nice, could have been heated more. Negatives - last time I stayed, had to ask to be moved to better room-worn sofa, walls needed paint, etc. Reception desk gave a new room but was not very cheerful about it. Horribly small, slow elevators - used by cleaning staff all morning and partly in afternoon. But overall value good and location is great.
Very good value, Residence Inn-Montreal
Just returned this past week from my trip to Montreal and stayed at the Residence Inn downtown. It was ideally located within a block from the underground city and the metro. The hotel provided us with a clean mini-suite (kitchen, dining area, couch, bed and bath). Each morning, a good breakfast is provided, including hot foods at no additional cost. Monday to Thursday, a snack is provided from 5PM-7PM. We were there from July 26th to August 2nd and the weather was fantastic, in the 70's - 85 during the day and going down at night to 60. Was able to rent a car from Avis a few blocks away to take side trip to Quebec for the day. If you have never been to Europe, see Quebec.
Nice place, nice price
I spent a quick weekend (apr. 4-6, 2003) at the Residence Inn Montreal Downtown and had a fine stay. The hotel is in a great location, on Peel just off De Maissoneuve in the middle of fantastic Montreal. The lobby is quite small but nicely decorated. I had a studio queen room with a kitchen that was spotless, spacious and nicely furnished. The kitchen (even though you probably won't use it in cuisine-rich Montreal) features a stove, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Bathrooms are small, but stocked with plenty of towels and amenities like soap and shampoo. THe hotel serves a decent breakfast buffet on its mezzanine level (though the huge breakfasts at EggSpectation are just a couple of blocks away)My only complaint is about the elevators - there are three of them in the 22-story hotel and they're really slow. Again, the location is incredible - less than 1/2 a block from the Peel metro station and a block and a half from the stores and carnival-like atmosphere of St. Catharine's street. Great restaurants ranging from French to Indian to Deli (smoked meat sandwiches) to steakhouses are all around.The Residence Inn, though lacking the extra frills (restaurants, room service) of your typical downtown hotels, is a fine place to stay in an incredible city. Oui!
We spent 5 days here. This place is perfect for families as each room has a full kitchen, and nice living area. Studio was fine for two, but 1 BR would be best for more than 2 people. Very much a business hotel, with nice staff. Includes free breakfast, afternoon snacks, and has a nice rooftop pool with small patio. Parking was $12 CDN per night. Quiet street in the heart of the business and shopping district just steps away from McGill Univ. and art attractions.
This hotel is very well planned. Bright spacious rooms, beautifully equipped kitchens, helpful staff, excellent complimentary breakfast and little snacks all day. The 23rd floor laundry and roof terrace were nice touches. We would definitely stay here again.

So I went to Montreal for the wedding of one of my good friends. I met her in Quebec City when we were both participating in a month long French language immersion program at Universite Laval circa 2005. We've been friends ever since. Transportation Getting there I took greyhound there and back from nyc. Not a good experience on the way there. I …
... Lots of people were jogging, cycling and walking along the canal and we also spotted a few rowers. There is lots of open space but it is still quite industrial although this seems to be changing with lots of apartments being built near the canal. The day was a bit overcast so the pictures are also a bit more dreary looking but we were glad it was a bit cooler by the end of the day as we were pooped! The bike path runs for about 15km (one way) and after getting a bit lost on the way ...

In other words, I may not be the all-inclusive type, but even I need a break sometimes.
Anyway, I'm pretty excited about this trip. Mexico is a huge country, but this is sure to give me a pretty nice overview of what I'm told are some pretty nice places. I'll be spending two weeks travelling overland from Mexico City to Playa del Carmen, with lots of interesting stops along the way.
Follow along with me, why don't ...
... we get to Victoria and I think this group will be together until the end.
Drove into Montreal yesterday afternoon stopping along the way at Exit 91 Truck Stop, the reason I tell you this is because the guy behind the counter was chatting me up and Gail thought it was hilarious. At least I got coffee and a muffin for free!!!! Sad thing is I didn't even realise until Gail pointed it out!!!! and she got her ...
