TravelPod Member ReviewsMarriott SpringHill Suites Old Montreal
Marriott-brand suite hotels have me completely spoiled. Finally a hotel where I don't have to sit on the bed to relax. Free full breakfast with plenty of protein. Free wi-fi. Valet Parking (not free but certainly reasonable for 24 hour downtown parking). Clean and well maintained, newly refurbished rooms, excellent customer service. The Springhill Suites in Old Montreal were certainly no exception.
While the hotel is a bit difficult to find because it is down a narrow street (which itself is well marked) and has no sign protruding over the street, it is ever so centrally located in the Old Port. With the help of our GPS and a heads up about the narrow street, we had no trouble finding the hotel, even with all the construction and re-tasking of streets in the area.

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott SpringHill Suites Old Montreal
Good location, price, staff, room
Very nice hotel, excellent location, and convenient car parking gives this hotel a thumbs up. Furthermore, the spa and pool are an added bonus. The staff was curteous and helpful and the breakfast was very good overall. High speed internet was free, and fast. I had stayed there during the montreal grand prix, 2004. Will stay again
Spent 2 nights, 1-3 July, 2004. Lovely little hotel. Cutely decorated lobby, small breakfast area, but more than adequate spread, coffee available at breakfast area throughout the day. Rooms basic, adequate size, kitchenette with a microwave and fridge only, no utensils or cutlery, except for glasses and coffee mugs, stir sticks. Perfect for families. Location excellent. Highly recommend if you require the microwave and fridge for preparing a quick meal. Close to Metro. if you want to stay in the Old city, you will not refret this choice. Note it is not of the same calibre of a boutique hotel like the Nelligan , but a great choice.
Can't wait to give praise!
I just returned yesterday from staying 3 nights at the SpringHill Suites in Old Montreal and couldn't wait to write to Trip Advisor about my wonderful experience. From the moment my friend and I walked into the lobby, we knew it was going to be a wonderful experience. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and pleasant, as were all the other staff that we met during our 3 day stay. Everything that we requested was delivered and any problems taken care of (with the exception of a noisy air conditioner when running on high.) I minded the lack of any view until I walked around Old Montreal and realized that very few buildings anywhere had a view!
The room was just great, and the beds were very comfortable. There was plenty of room, including a lovely little living room area, complete with a nice couch and a lovely chair which I would have loved to take home with me.
The buffet was bountiful and delicious. We ate and ate! The staff attending to the breakfast area were very polite and did a great job of keeping everything well stocked. It was nice to stop by later in the day and have hot tea on the mezzanine.
We had a salad and lots of bread at the attached restaurant (meals were beyond our budget), the Auberge St. Gabriel. The staff there were so gracious, including the manager who shook my hand and kissed my cheek as he welcomed me to Montreal.
I highly, highly recommend this hotel. Everything about it was superb. It was a great start to our vacation. Even the weather cooperated. Sunshine every day! It was our first trip to Montreal, but it won't be our last.
After much deliberation as to where to stay in Montreal...so many great hotels. We decided to stay at the SpringHill Suites by Marriott in the Old Montreal by the waterfront. It was a gem indeed! Very quite hotel, even though they were 85% full. Great service by the front desk and housekeeping as well as the valet attendants! The valet guys gave great directions to anywhere we wanted to go! Parking at the hotel is 18$CD. The front desk was very helpful with restaurants and things to do. The room was a bit tight for the four of us. But if you are a family of only 3 or just the two of you, it would be fine. They do have suites. We had a king bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed only fits one adult. We requested the top floor and and a corner room and we got that! Nice view of the harbor, you can see the ships and boats. There is a microwave, small sink and fridge there. Very helpful to keep baby's things as well as some beer/soda and snack foods. Housekeeping is very fast with your requests which was great.
The hotel does have a restaurant connected to it. I heard from many that it was very good, but we did not have a chance to try it out. The guys did go to the restaurant bar, typical hotel prices for their drinks. There is a small indoor pool and Jacuzzi which the baby loved! Also a very small gym. There is free continental breakfast available each day, which is ok, but gets old after the first two days. But you can go to the bakeries and cafes right around the corner and across the street for some great breakfast food! They do have free Internet available as well as a small business center with Internet service and fax machine. Which we did use one day to get driving directions to our next hotel. This hotel is close to everything! The water is only a few feet away, tons of shops and cafes and restraunts around the corner and across the street. You can walk all of Old Montreal in about 25 minutes! We did walk to downtown which is about 2 miles away. But it does not seem that far at all. You can grab a cab or take the convienent subway a few blocks away to everything in downtown. Even though it's a Marriott, you get the feel of a boutique hotel, because of it's size and atmosphere. I would recommend it highly especially for the $85 US rate I got!
I just want to agree with the others who have reviewed this hotel favorably--it's really a fine choice. Our hotel room was very quiet, clean, with an extremely comfortable king size bed. The hotel is new and in really tip top shape--everything works and looks nice. A very substantial and good continental breakfast is included in the room rate, along with the high speed internet access mentioned by other reviewers. Everyone who works at the hotel was very nice to us, and the location in Old Montreal is perfect--easy walking distance of all sorts of sites, great restaurants, but not in the crowds and noise of Sherbrooke. We didn't try the connected restaurant (went there just for drinks st the bar, and we liked Chez Brandy down the street a lot better.) For restaurants, do try Stash's Cafe Bazaar just down the street (great Polish food and an excellent pianist, really fun) and Troika on Rue Crescent (delicious French/Russian food.)
Better choice than full-service Marriott
Stayed here because at 119 Canadian it is half the price of the full service Marriott in town. Plus there is some sort of labor action there...a lockout that has been going on since February.
The Springhill is wonderful. Very clean, great staff, big rooms, big bathrooms and right in the heart of Old Montreal. Rate includes a continental breakfast. Excellent for families, seniors and business travellers. I stayed there April 10-15, 2004 over Easter. Would definitely return. This is like a boutique hotel. If you have stayed in other SHS the lobby doesn't look the same, nor do the rooms. But they have the same equipment-high speed internet, fridge, microwave, 2 TVs.
Check it out-you will love it!
Stayed 2 nights. Picked the location so we could walk to Cirque de Soleil. Great location - right in old Montreal, walk to Chinatown!
Great room - Nicely decorated, new, clean, very large room with king size bed, living area with recliner chair, small kitchen area & windows that open. Buffet breakfast. Underground parking a bit expensive, but convenient. Would definitely stay again.
The best kept secret in Montreal!
We stayed at the Marriott SpringHill Suites in Old Montreal in july during the Jazz Festival, what a great location not too far from the action and still in the middle of historical sites, service was excellent, suites are very spacious, perfect for the family! Thanks to Etienne for making our stay so special, we can't wait to return next year.
Just returned from a luxurious 2-night stay in Vieux Montreal. Valet parking a real blessing after battling heavy city traffic. Great to abandon the car as the hotel is located one block from the city bus lines and about 3 blocks from the Metro. What a surprising experience to waltz into sparkling new accomodations in the oldest neighborhood in town. All the charm of street performers, boutique shops, creperie nooks, flower carts, open air dining, IMAX, and waterfront activities awaits outside. The hotel is a calm, elegant hide-away with tasteful rooms, a small pool/whirlpool area, and a first class spa on the mezzanine floor. Everything is so new and spotless clean. The front desk staff is exceptional, very helpful and easy to talk with. Ask for a room on any of the five floors in the lower numbers, (ie. 301-306). They are closer to the piers and offer a little better view extending beyond a parallel building. I never made it to the continental breakfast offering, only lasts until 9:30am and I was still snoozing away. Never heard a sound! If your able, be sure to book any treatment at the Gibson Spa. I had a massage and a facial. The angels that work there are incredibly skilled and very professional. Peaceful perfection allowed for a memorable, pampering, and rejuvenating visit.
Best hidden secret!!
I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights with my 2 children. The rooms were large, 2 queen size beds and a single pullout. Small living area with couch and recliner, desk and chair and mini kitchen area with sink, fridge and microwave. The bath/shower and toilet are separate from the sink area, which is very useful and there are 2 TV's. Breakfast is included in a buffet style. The hotel is situated right in the centre of Old Montreal and has underground parking. It's really a home from home and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Just planning another trip today!!

... looked like a typical French house similar to ones we have stayed in before in France. However on closer inspection the kitchen was to say the least decidedly grotty much to Lees disgust. It also had a strange basement that gave Bella and I the chills. It didn't seem to bother Freddie at all even with the spooky pictures of long dead inhabitants on the walls and the empty cot in the corner. Aaah!!! After a ...
... We decided to also try the smoked meat that every restaurant in the area also advertised and so we split a sandwich and an order of poutine. For those that do not know what poutine is, it is french fries, cheese curds and hot brown gravy. It was delicious. We tried it before years ago at an A&W (we were sure it was one of the gourmet poutine restaurants) and weren't impressed. This was so much better. The cheese curd was different than the stuff we ...
... you know what I am having tonight don't you!!!!). Then through to the bedroom with the biggest King Bed I have ever seen, a beautifully comfortable chaise lounge and another wardrobe. We had cake and compliments from the manager on a small table in the entry on arrival. I guess you can imagine that we were both speechless and also delighted by our good fortune....... We also have access to Club Continental which has breakfast, canapés & cocktails in the ...
... I was not sure what we did wrong. It turned out one of the girls was pouring beer into her cup behind the bar, so we all got kicked out. In true Canadian fashion, she apologised a hundred times and we went off to find another place to drink.
A few beers later we ended up back at the hostel at 4am. It was a crazy night - trying to speak French is fun when under the influence of Alcohol. It was an interesting way to celebrate my Birthday.
... if I could find a job. I was lucky to be hosted by amazing family and friends - my cousins Jane Henry and Willa Henry and the Notman family took me in and let me stay in their homes during my time there. Eventually after a month and a half of searching for a job I have found work at an engineering consulting firm in Vancouver. As we speak I am in the process of moving my things, having shipped my worldly possessions including my car to Vancouver. It is ...
