... of Season 1 Boardwalk Empire which kept me entertained. We were surprised as we came into land as it was snowing, every thing was bathed in white, it looked so clean. We had a 2 hour wait so we went to the transit area to get comfortable. The snow soon became our enemy as we noticed cancelled flights popping up all over the board. Then the inevitable happened ours was cancelled. We found a Swiss staff member ...
We were hungry and tired so we decide to go eat somewhere that's easy -- McDonald's! Though this wasn't any ordinary McDonald's. I was actually looking forward to this on the trip. Travel Channel had a show profiling the ten most unusual McDonald's in the world. This McD's in Montreal made the list. It was unusual because there was a cafe (McCafe) right next door. According to the show, the cafe had really good coffee, pastries, ...

It felt like we were on a school trip as Russ led the way to the nightclub with backpackers following two by two. The club was on a few floors playing music from different decades. We went to the 80’s floor and Russ bought us all a drink. It wasn’t long before he was displaying some crazy dance moves.
Everyone else in the club was about 18 and we think it was probably a student night. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Montreal Airport Hotel Dorval
Won't stay again
We chose to stay at the airport location since it was convenient for where we needed to be in the Montreal area. I had booked online and when we arrived we were not given the room we had booked and paid for, we wanted two doubles, not a king room. After we changed rooms, we found the room to be extremely hot, we were over the steam room. An engineer came and said nothing could be done, there was actually a second air conditioner and it cooled off somewhat but was extremely noisy. There are major renovations going on and our room was not one that had been done yet, the halls were a mess.
Breakfast was good, but expensive. Staff was nice but slow. I usually like staying at a Hilton but this one is not up to par with most I have stayed in and never again will I stay there.
i was kind of forced to stay here for a convention and i hated it, though a breakfast was decent and the housekeeping staff was pleasant
My recent stay at the Hilton Montreal Dorval Airport over Memorial Day weekend was possibly the most disappointing and disgusting hotel stay that I've had. I'll just list a few reasons for my dissatisfaction below:
Stuffy Furniture, Noisy, Given Handicapped Room, Parking Fee
I just came back to NY from a 2 night stay at this Hotel. My husband & I asked for a King size bed but were given a Queen & a handicapped room. This was not requested. Parking at $9.50 a day was a surprise. There was a country dance contest & the hotel was full. Very noisy at times. The bed box was broken.
We checked the room next door & discovered some rooms have more updated furniture & nicely appointed bathrooms. Ours looked like a hospital. The 60's furniture was dated.
We discovered that updated rooms were available at extra cost.
Although this hotel is very convenient to the airport ,has adequate rooms and services, if you are a non-smoker I would not recommend it. I stayed here for 4 nights the week of April 4, 2004. From the moment I walked into the lobby there was strong cigarette smoke. Smoking including cigar and pipe is allowed everywhere in the hotel, including the executive lounge. Being a diamond member I was given a room on the top floor (executive level). Supposedly my room was non-smoking, but it smelled as if a lighted cigarette was constantly burning . I complained and was given an air filter, which did help a little.
Quiet place but lots of extra charges
Very close to airport.....and very very quiet rooms.
Disappointed to find $9 per day parking charge and $9 per day high speed internet charge not listed on website info. Laundry service is only avail M-F, not 7 days as listed. Lobby area is nice; rooms and hallways are a bit rundown. Great water pressure in the showers. High speed internet service was not reliable, required several phone calls to service provider to reconnect to high speed. Room service was good.
Convenient for early flights
The hotel isn't particularly impressive. The guest rooms are spacious, but the appointments and furnishings weren't anything special. But there is high speed internet ($9.95 CAD). They tried to sell me an upgrade to a nicer room on check in, saying that I had paid a "really low rate" (over $100 USD), but I didn't bite...
The key thing that makes this hotel convenient is frequent airport shuttle service, close proximity to the airport, and an abundance of ground floor rooms - so it's easy to get up and catch an early flight.
I have no idea where the other two folks that reviewed actually stayed, but I just got home from the Dorval Hilton in Montreal and I found the accommodations very comfortable and the staff excellent. These folks will bend over backward to help you. I was in a wedding party and can't express my gratitude enough to Guillaume and Jean-David for all their help in making the occasion for the bride and groom the best it could be. As far as the rooms go, I want to thank Terry for his help and consideration when my room needed to be changed due to a plumbing problem. Also Concierge Austin is a very helpful and kind young man. He aided a friend of mine as best he could in providing directions to the hotel. And thanks as well to Brigitte and the girls at the desk. Should I ever have a reason to travel to Montreal again, this is the place I would want to stay. Thanx again all and keep up the good work.
Tranquil oasis as airport hotels go
I was expecting an anonymous pretty run down place for our 4 day stay, but wanted to be on the west of Montreal in any case. My first disappointment was that they charge 9$ ca to let you park your car in what are OCEANS or car park...this certainly wasn't mentioned in any information I had read in advance about the place. Other than that..It is worth asking for a room with a view of the pool and grounds as this is pretty tranquil. The whole hotel was very peaceful and quiet. The leisure club was enjoyable as we had unseasonably warm October weather and the gardens were a delight, although the outdoor part of the pool had closed. Didn't eat here, didn't try room service. Bit disappointed the bathroom was a tad run down and the tub took an age to drain... hey ho!
