Our last few days in San Francisco were relatively uneventful. Just walking about in San Francisco, romantic sunset takeaway meal by Golden Gate bridge, and a nice steak dinner by Masterchef Johnny Choi (a.k.a. MasterMischief Johnny by his in-laws... but that's another long story). Then on the morning we were due to bid adieu to San Francisco, a …
Today started off well. I had an email from the vet and Jessie is doing ok, & just got another email letting me know Jessie has gone back to cat haven. I went back down to Vieux (old) Montreal. I went back to The Notre-Dame Basilica (church) and went in side. It is stunning inside. Spend a bit of time thinking about all the things I am grateful for in my life. There is a lot of gallery's so I enjoyed going in a looking at all the brilliant paintings. I wish ...
... me to Montreal had been the best that they could do to accommodate that wish. I was booked on a flight for Thursday morning, the 9th, to Winnipeg. This would mean I'd have to again try and change the West Jet flight, leaving today at 8:45pm, and the Fairmont booking in Vancouver. I took the printout, got my stuff together, and went to find something to eat, as it was now midday and I hadn't eaten anything significant since the day before. Nothing in New York had been open, ...
... photos and kept walking. By now I was getting tired, so I headed towards the main road and jumped on a bus back to town. It took me to the train so I took it back to the stop near the hotel. Back at the hotel I had some food and started to repack my bag. Then decided I would go for a walk to see where the airport bus leave from. It's just around the corner. Awesome. I kept walking for a bit. Wandered the shops. Then went back and finished ...
... sharing a dorm with people that I didn't know felt a bit strange but we soon adapted to it! Our first night we had a weird guy in our dorm, he was Swiss and reminded me of a trampier version of Indiana jones, but for the rest of our stay we had a lovely French girl and a French boy in our dorm which Sam loved because most mornings he woke up to her bum in his face (the French don't care too much about nudity)!!! The best ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel St-Denis Montreal
Writing this from the hotel room (wi-fi works great by the way). I was looking for a hotel under $100 a night and I am pretty pleased so far with what we've got. The location is central, there's lots of restaurants up the street. Stumbled across a very nice dessert shop when looking for a place to eat last night (Juliettee st Chocolat, turn left out of the hotel). Getting here from airport is easy. Take the 747 bus from the airport and get off at stop 10. Room has a big king sized bed. Bathroom is clean. Everything you'd expect from a 3-star hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel St-Denis Montreal
I stayed at this hotel with 5 friends during the Jazz Festival. Parking was convenient and the front desk staff all very friendly and helpful.
Worst hotel I have ever seen!
Don't be fool by the nice website and cheap price! You don't want to stay in this dump. You see prostitutes just steps away from the front door. As soon as we got to the hotel I realized I won't stay there. We just left our luggage for about an hour before I could look around and find another hotel. They charged us $60 for that 1 hour!! I was ready to pay more to get rid of that
A friend of mine recomended me this Hotel. For a very good price you get a very clean room, quiet at night, very professional employees and a restaurant-bar downstairs. I must say the resaturant looks very hip and artsy, I really liked it. The food is good, but to be honest is not the best compared to other restaurants around the area, but still good!
The waiters and waitresses are very friendly and quick to serve you.
I highly recomend this Hotel to someone who wants a good Hotel for a good reasonable price.

LOVE IT!!!!This is a great hotel for 20 ish to 40ish crowd!!!!!
My boyfriend and I have stayed here on our past two trips to Montreal for the Jazz Festival. The hotel is very basic, without lots of frills, but the price makes up for the lack of luxuries. The rates are great, parking is right around the block, and the front desk staff is always quick to help with any directions or suggestions you might need. There is a great restaurant downstairs, with the BEST breakfast in town. It's in a perfect location, right near the metro station, and walking distance from the Place Des Arts and the Village. The majority of the guests seemed to be around our age (25ish), but it was very quiet and low key, nonetheless. We brought friends with us this year, and we all agreed that for the money, Hotel St. Denis is the perfect place to stay. We will definitely be back for 2004!
I stayed there the first time in 1983
It is very close to Berri UGAM metro station.It is the center of the city.St. Denis street has some very nice restaurants.The Dupuis Mall is just around the corner.It has an excellant food court.I have stayed there about 15 times in the past 20 years,it almost feels like home.

I found the hotel to be very clean if basic but the point is to get out & see the city not hang out in the room. It covers all of the necessities, including shower & TV in the room without having to pay for the mint under the pillow. It's locat ion was great, short walks to the old quarter and St. Catherine street (Turn right for the gay night life, left for the straight night life). The city is well worth the visit and St. Denis is well located to make it a pleasant experience.
Basic, inexpensive hotel in a fun area
The hotel is in the Latin Quarter, close to a Metro stop. Lots of places to hang out withing walking distance, and it is very easy to get to other parts of Montreal by Metro. Management was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very basic, but clean. The room I stayed in didn't have a shower in the bathroom, instead there was a shared shower in the hall. Still, it was very clean and I never had to wait to use it. Other rooms have pprivate showers, I think. If you want a inexpensive hotel in a convenient area, I recommend here.
I highly reccomend a trip to Montreal, especially for people aged 16 to 25. What I must warn you of however is a rathole posing as a hotel named the hotel st. Denis located on St Denis street. This is one of the worst "hotel"'s I have ever stayed at. To start off with we were advertised a reduced rate on their website, and they acted ignorant to the offer when we checked in. Next, the maid stole my friends clothes right out of the closet, than when we reported it a day later she snuck back in and hung them up on the closet. The scum bag owner didn't even care and he would not accomodate us when our toilet overflowed and spilled onto our rug. Stay away from this hotel at all costs it was a shitty touch to an otherwise cool trip.
