Short money and great location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 16, 2008

I have stayed at La Tour Centre-Ville for many of my "guy's" trips to Montreal. I stayed there once again last week when I was in town for the Radiohead concert. Price was $99 per night (stayed Tuesday and Wednesday night). The rooms are quite dated, still partying like it's 1969. Despite the aged look of the room it was quite comfortable with a queen size bed, dining area, separate seating area and kitchenette. There is a come-and-go parking garage beneath the hotel, which we hadn't previously known of, at a rate of $16 per day. Quite a deal considering we always parked blocks away and had to leave the car else pay again to park.

Unique Quality: Fairly nice view of south Montreal, if you look at least two blocks past the hotel. The view from the small kitchen window is quite comical, and better than TV in my opinion, as you look at countless windows in an office building, watching people diligently working...or not. The garage is a fantastic accommodation. Other than the price, my favorite aspect of this hotel is the location. Once arriving in Montreal after the 4-5 hour drive from Boston, the hotel is only minutes away on Rene Levesque. It's a few blocks from Quartier Chinois (Chinatown) and it's wonderful restaurants. Two blocks from St. Urbain and one street south of St. Catherine, La Tour is strategically located and an ideal locale. If you can get past the ancient rooms, the elevators not always working and the internet being down, it's a great place to stay. I'd definitely stay again if I was going to Montreal with friends.

Directions: Once Route 10 becomes University, take a right onto Rene-Levesque Blvd. Ouest. Located in Centre-Ville between Rue St. Alexandre and Rue de Bluery.

The name says it all…

If you’re looking to stay in downtown without breaking your budget, then this is the place for you. I booked this place in the last moment, because I didn’t have many other choices at that time, but I couldn’t have made a better choice.

The room was HUGE, with a fully equiped kitchen (I didn’t even ask for this), and stunning views of the city. The personell was very friendly, curteneous, and room service was always on time. The hotel is just minutes away from the convention center, the financial district, the great cafés and boutiques of Saint Denis street, the restaurants of Saint Laurent street. And, if you’re interested in this, it is right across the street from the US consulate.

The only draw back was that parking was not free. Still, they have a heated garage, which turned to be absolutelly necessary, during our stay, when temperatures dropped below -20 degrees. Overall, a great place at a great price!

Directions: * Bonaventure Highway will change name to University Street in Downtown Montreal.
* On University Street turn right on Rene-Levesque Boulevard.
* La Tour Centre-Ville is at the corner of Rene-Levesque and De Bleury.

Apartment Style Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

This hotel was amazing. Split between 5 people it barely cost anything, and it was located right downtown so everything was either within walking distance or a cheap cab ride away.

Unique Quality: Our room had a bedroom with a king size bed, a pull out couch capable of sleeping two more people, and an extra cot. It also came with a kitchen (oven, fridge, sink etc.)

If you would really like to see your money stretch, go to the grocery store like we did and cook yourself a couple nice meals instead of going out to eat. You'll feel a lot better AND your wallet will still feel nice and heavy (until you go out to party that is...)

Directions: Right on the corner of Rene-levesque and Bleury. Can't miss it.

Go to 'La Tour Centre-ville' ...

by written on August 24, 2002

Go to 'La Tour Centre-ville' It's cheap, clean, very spacious, and in an incredible location. I believe it was renovated in 1998
On average, the larger suites (1 berdoom w/2 twin beds, a kitchen, bathroom, and living room with a full sized hide-a-bed) cost about $80 Canadian dollars which comes to about $50-$60 US dollars depending on the exchange rate.

Unique Quality: Where else in the world can you get a suite that will sleep 4 people for around $50-$60 US per night?

Directions: Place des-Arts is pretty much the center of Montreal. Stay near there and you'll find all types of things to do within walking distance.
