Travel Blogs from Longueuil
Right, we arrived at Montreal in the afternoon and headed straight for the Mont Real - the mountain that gives the city its name! The view over the city was beautiful but the weather wasn't so great so you couldn’t see as far as normal. Next we headed in to the city centre and had a walk around the older part of the city.

We went inside and found our seats. They played the national anthems of the USA and Canada and we all stood, before the game commenced.
The home crowd was nearly 20,000 strong, and Montreal Impact had an impressive 2-0 win over the Portland Timbers. The Impact dominated the game from the get-go and had several good ...

Next day went on a walking tour of old Montreal and felt like I was walking through France. Was interesting seeing the french and anglo buildings next too each other and seeing the contrast between them. A few of us went down to the port, china town and explored the city by foot a bit more.

Put our skates on and spent a good hour practicing our skills! I even managed to try a little crossover on the corners. There were a lot of people there, but we were pleasantly surprised that we were not the worst there, and were actually rather good considering!

5 hours of exploring on foot and the jet lag set it, an afternoon nap was well welcomed before hopping up and venturing out to China Town to get some dinner.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sandman Montreal Longueuil
Nice Hotel. Spent 3 nights with a family of four. Very friendly staff. Great value. Nice pool. Room was OK.
Desk clerks were extremely friendly, spoke fluent English and immediately switched to English when we said "Hello". They also were extremely helpful with directions and suggestions on what to see and where to go. Subway system is right next door and made the traveling into the City very easy. We ate at the Hotel's restaurant for breakfast and dinner, both meals were excellent, although a bit pricey, as were all reastaurants in Montreal. For the rate, the room was average and clean: a good deal for moderate travelers, non smoking, two queen beds. Maid service was excellent. Toilet running a long time after flushing was minor inconvnience, we did not report it. If we ever go back to Montreal, we would certainly stay at the Sandman again. We were here for 5 days. EVERYONE we met in Monteal and Quebec was friendly and helpful and made our stay delightful. Thank you to the French Canadians for making our vacation a pleasurable one!
Excellent and Reasonable
My wife and I stayed here while I was attending a conference in Montreal. I took advantage of a special Expedia rate (which required pre-payment) of US$100 per night, including taxes. With the free parking at the Sandman, we thought this to be an excellent rate. Our room was nice, the gym useful, and the hotel very convenient to Montreal via the subway system. Downtown Montreal was a 15-minute Metro ride away; each trip cost under CND$2.00.
Just returned from a business trip to Longueuil, Quebec. We stayed at the Sandman Hotel. The hotel was clean, staff was very courteous and helpful and madt the stay overall great. One of the 3 nights we were there, we had had some drinks and were socializing in 1 of our rooms together.(6 of us) Obviously, we were a little loud and one of the other guests complained about the racket. Instead of the usual "Quiet down or else", one of the hotel staff visited our room and told us if we wanted to keep partying, they would be more than happy to give us a conference room downstairs to party in all night at no charge.
Overall a great experience and great staff to complete a great trip. Next time I stay in or around Montreal, this hotel will be my first choice.
Sandman Longueuille is the BEST!
We stayed at Sandman Longueuille. It's just across the river from Montreal. You step out the door, take a left and there is the station for the metro, trains, buses. It's very convenient.
The hotel met my absolute requirements: Clean, quite, comfortable, a good value.
We even enjoyed our meal at the restaurant! I don't often expect much from hotel food, but this was excellent. We were tired when we arrived and were happy to be greeted by such a friendly staff at the hotel and the restaurant.
Convenient, clean and relatively innexpensive
We stayed for three nights at this hotel in August of 2005. The staff was friendly and curteous, always switching instantly from French into English when we indicated we couldn't speak French. Don't be scared by the fact that they are technically outside the city of Montreal, they are located mere feet from the subway station which shoots you into downtown Montreal in a few short minutes. It really was very convenient. The only negative aspect of the stay was that the hotel stated the restaurant stayed open until 10pm, but when we arrived at 9:30 to order a piece of a cake, we were told that everything had been packed away and there was no cake to be had. Boo. Otherwise, clean and well staffed. Feels just like any chain hotel in the US.
We just came back from our vacation in Montreal and we stayed at the Sandman Hotel in Montreal (Longueuil). We did enjoy our stay at this hotel. We stayed in a non-smoking room and they have comfortable beds/pillows, the room was a nice size, as was the bathroom. There was also plenty of towels in the bathroom, plus a hairdryer. They also have free parking and the parking lot is very big. There is a nice restaurant by the lobby of the hotel where you can get the buffet or order something from the menu. We didn't try the buffet but we did order bacon and eggs one morning and the food was very good. They have packets of different kinds of jelly on the tables for your toast and even packets of peanut butter! There is a small gift shop in the lobby of the hotel also. The staff of the hotel were very helpful and friendly. You have to take the Metro (Subway) to get downtown or to Old Montreal but the Longueuil Metro is right outside the door of this hotel and they are only a short ride away. Inside the Longueuil Metro Station there is a small grocery store and a convenience store so you can buy snacks to take up to your room. The grocery store even sells ready-made sandwiches, salads, fruit cups, and lots more. We would stay at the Sandman Hotel again if we ever vacationed again in Montreal.
I stayed at the Sandman this week-end (late March) as I had some major problems at their other location in downtown Calgary and therefore, they entitled me with a free night so I could "enjoy their usually high standards". I would also like to point out that I'm not a fussy traveller (I need a comfy bed, a clean room and a place to shower) but I do take into consideration the quality vs price ratio. Therefore, this is why I rated the Sandman as "average" as there is nothing bad or great about it. It's just a generic, typical suburban chain-hotel. Enough about the overall impression.
Exceptional service at Sandman Longueuil
I travel on business a lot and really appreciated the four star service I received from everyone at the Front Desk.
I found the business center very convenient!
Very close to Metro (but nothing else)
Very close to metro. Good value given the proximity to downtown (5 min subway ride). Not much is within walking distance of the hotel, but downtown and rest of Montreal is pretty accessible thru highways & metro.
