Hidden Architectural Gem
We almost stayed here, but for what is worth, I particulary visited this site because of its architectural elements.
More about Hotel St Paul
Location, location, location
The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and accomodating. The parking across the street certainly made life simple. We enjoyed the location, as it was not only easy to walk uphill and get to the center of the old city but also easy to access the highway to go out to Ile d'Orleans and St. Anne de Beaupre.
We found it to be very appealing
This was our first time to Montreal. My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night and absolutely loved it! It was a bit pricey, but it was worth it. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The design was so modern and appealing. It was definetly a stress-free night. My only complaint is that there is no hot tub!
Stayed at the hotel for four nights in early June. When we arrived at hotel, we were greeted with soft lighting, classical music, truffles and a selection of sparkling and flat water in our room.
Decor - stark, minimalist, no clutter; did not find it cold at all
Room - had a superior queen, which was very spacious; I found the bed a bit hard but my boyfriend loved it. The bathroom was spacious and very clean. The tub could fit three people.
Food - excellent selection and quality both at breakfast and at lunch; did not eat dinner at hotel
Annoyances - had to request a shower cap, which is standard in most high-end hotels. We had a business meeting arranged in the breakfast room. We had to clear our own tables and even wipe them down while three hotel staff just watched us do so!
Ambiance - the hotel was not very busy, so we really didn't get a vibe; there is always soft music playing in the hotel - electronic, jazz, bossanova. Had a few drinks at the bar one night but they were nothing special.
Location - best in town. Close to shopping, entertainment and Old Montreal.
Overall, would go back if the price was right.
Perfect Hotel for us
For two graphic designers on their honeymoon, this hotel was perfect. We loved the decor, the simplicity, the friendly staff and the lovely breakfast provided every morning at no cost. It was relitively quiet (except for the occational morning construction down the street). There was good sushi near by, but other than that, not a lot of restaurant options right on Rue McGill. Old Montreal, Notre Dame Basilica and a view of Habitat '67 were a short walk away. Hotel St. Paul is a few blocks from the subway, which was no problem for us, but I could see how it could be too far for some. We loved our honeymoon in Montreal largly due to our stay at Hotel St. Paul. We would stay there again.
Chic AND friendly
The Hotel St. Paul in Old Montreal is a wonderful place. It has the usual chic, high design look that is the norm in boutique hotels these days, with the added attraction of an incredibly friendly staff (I think we can fairly say this isn't always the norm in such hotels). The room was beautiful and comfortable, the breakfast was great (lots of fresh fruit, about 5 or 6 kinds of cheese, and various rolls, breads and pastries), and the location is perfect for a romantic weekend in a great little city. You're right there in the old city, a very walkable old place filled with restaurants and cafes, nice places to shop, etc. We never made it to the gym so I can't comment on that, but we did find a great trail that runs along the canal that is perfect for a morning run or stroll. I highly recommend this hotel.
My second visit and WOW!!
Ladies and Gentlemaen, this hotel is what 5 star service is all about!! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted and welcomed. It was like the movies. He was waiting for us with an umbrella and took care of all the baggage and said that it would be in the room shortly. The service at the reception was phenominal!! It was quick and painless. And they also gave us so much info about the events in the city, festivals, and things to do. We were then pointed in the right direction to our room. The room, you must know, is clean and impeccable!! Some may say they are cold, but if you are openminded, they are beautiful! What you see on the website, is what you get. Shortly after we settled in, the doorman arrived with our luggage and an envelope from the concierge. He had gone to the trouble of printing out 5 or so restaurants around Montreal. The staff took care of all our reservations and transportation. Excellent service! The two nights at Hotel St-Paul were absolutely wonderful! It you want a hotel that treats all their guests like kings and queens, look no further...BULLSEYE!
Modern, Elegant, Refreshing
The St. Paul Hotel was true class. My husband and I went for a 2 day weekend and were extremely pleased. We arrived at the hotel on Friday night at 9:30pm. From the moment we arrived, we were pampered. The doorman welcomed us with a smile and eagerness to serve us in any way. The reception staff was wonderful! Very informative and attentive. We were so hungry after a 7 hour drive and Eric presented us with 4 restaurant menus and when we chose, he called the restaurant to make the reservation for us. We at at the Mondavi on St. Paul and it was incredible!
Our room was on the Penthouse level. It was spectacular from the moment we entered. The decor was truly modern minimalist. It was not a cold atmosphere but, serene and soothing. The 13 foot ceilings, giant floor to ceiling window and view of the city was a cosmopolitan delight. The marble bathroom and giant bathtub was a treat. The room was large and streamline. The designer, Ana Barello, is absolute talent. She transformed an old historical building into a modern oasis. We looked forward to being in our room as much as visiting beautiful Old Montreal.
The location was perfect! We were on the very last street of Old Montreal which meant it was located outside of the bustle but, just a 5 min walk from the historical buildings, shops and marina. Old Montreal in the summer is just beautiful!
I would recommend the St Paul to anyone. The price is right. You will be happy you visited.
