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.

... of downtown streets in Montreal become pedestrian markets from May through September, and we came across a couple of other such markets in our day. Unfortunately my sore big toe allowed me to only walk (bikes had to be walked) for a few blocks of these markets. They were a tiny bit disappointing in what they were selling… no produce or anything else particularly special, but rather the product of the particular shopfront… so ...
... if required! We actually have no real plans here so far, so wii be winging it a bit for the next few days. We're pretty sure we can find something touristy to do... And if not, the local beer here is about a hundred times better than American beer, so in the very least, we will get our fill before heading back into the States to Chicago in just over a week's time. We will bore you silly with photos of ooh and aah inspiring things in the ...
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.
... on double dates... only to realize later on that we were with the wrong person. Ahaha! anyways, He had taken his two weeks off work to take the Greyhound to BC from Montreal and back again, just so he could attend Canada's largest festival. SHAMBHALA!
He couldn't stop raving about his time in the beautiful mountains at this mind blowing festival.
All he wanted to do was to return for the next year, but ...
... as well. I saw lots of cards with pictures of Montreal in Autumn & winter. I am taking some of those images and will hopefully be able to take similar photo's. They are my inspiration. I am looking so forward to exploring Montreal. I feel so fake when I speak in French. The only problem is as soon as I say bonjour, people think I can speak French. I then have to say "English" I'm such a ...
