    The hotel looks nothing like the photos on their website. Someone touched up those photos with PHOTOSHOP! It's also not the cleanest place either. The only thing good about this place is the location

    Unique Quality: If you book online you get better deals on a room and pretty good deals on free breakfast and parking..

    Directions: centre ville

    On the Small Side

    by

    We stayed at the Maritime in the summer of 2003. It is a very small hotel with very small rooms. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was comfy.

    If you like room service don't pick the Meritime. My husband and I attempted on several occasions to order room service but each time we were told that the kitchen was closed. The Kitchen seemed to always be closed regardless of the time of day.

    There is a nice Indian Restaurant next door and you are within walking distance of many shops.

    We had a great stay. The staff was very leaneant about things if we were getting a little roudy they didnt mind as long as nobody complained. They helped us find what ever we needed and gave us directions to where we needed to go.

    Unique Quality: Awsome pool and wait room

    Directions: Downtown

Much Better Than Some Reviewers Indicate

by TripAdvisor Member Dcubita

Overall my wife and I had a pleasant experience at the Maritime Plaza Hotel. We also stayed at the Fairmont (5-star rating) during this same trip, and a room there costs upwards of $200US. The Maritime Plaza's amenities are a couple of notches down, but the rooms and location are comparable.

Staff/Service: the Maritime's staff is friendly and welcoming. They provided good restaurant recommendations and worked efficiently to ensure lines did not build at the reception desk. Even the parking attendants were personable and informative.

Rooms: the rooms are above average in decor, comfort, and overall quality. The bathrooms are nice with strong showers. I would say that the hotel is more European than some Americans are used to, so the rooms may seem a bit small. However, nothing is cramped, and space is used effectively.

Location: the hotel is within walking distance to most downtown places of interest, including St. Catherine Street, Crescent Street (for restaurants), and Mont Royal Park. It's probably a 30-40 minute walk to Vieux Montreal (old Montreal), where much of the tourist-oriented shopping and sites are. We rented a car and had no trouble finding the hotel or parking.

Some other reviews point out that the pictures of The Maritime Plaza on some booking sights are drawings. While this is true, the hotel looks very similar to the drawn pictures... they do not mis-represent the exterior or interior.

We did not try the hotel restaurant.

In summary, we would recommend this hotel as a good value within the $100 - $120 US price range.

Misleading website photographs!!

by TripAdvisor Member SMMV

This hotel does NOT look like the photos on the website. Very misleading. Its much older and worn in real life. The rooms are very small, and you couldnt even swing a cat in the bathroom. However, they are clean and comfortable and the beds are brilliant - best feature. Its also in a good location for sightseeing.

Not bad, nice sundeck!

by A TripAdvisor Member

The hotel lobby looks like a Vegas casino at first sight, maratime themed in blue everywhere, but the rest of the hotel is much less interesting and the staff were in no horry to check people in. However, our room was high up and had a nice view, very clean and comfortable. The pool and sundeck area on the mezzanine is great if its hot- you can swim/ lay in the sun after coming back from sight seeing! Rue Crescent is nearby, great selection of bars- but very very lively! St Laurent is probably a nicer area if your over 30, but this hotels not really in walkable distance to that (took about 45 mins).

Not A Four Star Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

I think the canadian goverment should pay close attention to the hotel ratings. This hotel has a nice lobby but they should put more effort into the rooms. The carpet in the rooms are old with a scent of mildew. The bed look comfortable until you sleep on it to discover the struggle of trying to keep your body from rolling to the middle. The washrooms need re-grouting to keep the mildew from growing and the staff needs severe training to teach them the fundmentals of hospitality. My two night stay in August will be the last I see of this hotel.

Just Brilliant

by TripAdvisor Member Midnighthour

My wife and I recently returned from a holiday in Canada, which included Montreal.We were rather apprehensive about the Maritime Plaza, having read a number of adverse reports after having booked there. However, there was no cause for concern as we found the hotel to be exceptionally good, well situated and the staff helpful at all times. We do a considerable amount of travelling and are firmly of the opinion that this hotel ranked with the best that we have stayed.

Small Hotels--- The Village or Quartier Latin Areas

by singltravlr

First trip to Montreal and as usual, where to stay. Am looking at Hotel l'Abri du Voyageur, Hotel Jardin Antoine, Hotel le Bourbon, or Bienvenue B&B. Anyone have any knowledge of these or any other recommmendations along with web site addresses if you have them. Would like to stay under $100US/night with private bath. Really appreciate any suggestions anyone might have.

Thanks!

Hotel le Bourbon is a gay hotel, with a very noisy bar below it. Not a great place to stay. Had a friend stay there and he said it was noisy every night.

I understand you are seeking something cheap and close to everything. Lets just start by stating that L'Abri du Voyageur is a "hot" hotel, unless you want to stay in the "red light district", in the hotel the pros use, you should not even consider it (I would certainly question the cleanliness of the place). Second, the later reply is right, Le Bourbon is a gay hotel right in the center of "The Village", hard to sleep at night... for people are not only partying in the bar under, but also running from room to room upstairs also (again I would question cleanlyness of the place)! :) ...Not knowing the Bienvenue B&B, I think the Jardin d'Antoine would be your best choice, as it is close to all festivals and the most central metro station, in a great relaxed and charming area of the city "Quartier Latin" (allthough lots of students and ...drugs) nevertheless, you're best bet. Have you consider looking into other B&B? ...Try www.bbcanada.com if you haven't: good prices and lots of choices, provinding you are not too late for reservations. Also downtown hotels that are pretty cheap (do not carry so many stars either) include Novotel, Park Hotel, Best Western Downtown, Taj Mahal Hotel and Hotel Maritime Plaza.
Have a nice time in Montreal!

I would definitely say Hotel Jardin Antoine very good choice. We have stayed 4 times and have been pleased. St Denis street is great. Also try hotel st Denis if it is booked as that is 1 block down and next to metro station, prices also good we just stayed last weekend and it was 140 USD for a room for four.
