Crowne Plaza Montreal Centre: The Crown Plaza- not so royal.

I booked this hotel over the internet because the pics looked good and I got what I THOUGHT was a deal of about $100 a night during the peak summer season. Although the location is decent, on Sherbrooke East near Rue St. Laurent, the hotel did not come close to living up to expectations. It has an overall dingy feel to it, threadbare carpets, non-functioning elevators, musty rooms. Luckily, we did not spend that much time there but you can find Much better accomodation in Montreal for about the same price.

We own a 3 bedroom house we can exchange: House exchange...

We are experienced home-swappers and are expecting the same from you. Two adults and one child are part of our party; our house can accomodate 5 people (of a same family). It is situated in the heart of Montreal, in a residential area called Rosemont, near the 1976 Olympic Complex and Botanical Gardens. Metro, buses, stores, restaurants and all conveniences within walkable distance. You will also find a fully equipped kitchen, a washer and dryer and a nice shaded garden in the backyard.

We are open to offers for periods of three to four weeks, starting 2006, but will only answer to the ones coming with over 6 months delay prior to the exchange date for the months of July or August. We will require references and provide ours, and ...a bathtub and phone in your house! The exchange of a car is NOT included in our offer. No smoking is permitted in the house, neither are animals. For more details and complete description of the house and facilities, you can contact me: Vibi68 on my VT mail adress and consult my Montreal page.

Motels: there cheaper and nice like hotels: If you want to save avoid downtown

Montreal's hotels are very clean and well situated but can be very expensive. Since there is many mode of transportation for a cheap price I would suggest that you stay in the surrounding of Montreal like Laval, the wset of the Montreal Island (Dorval, Pointe-Claire, etc.), The south shore of Montreal Island (Brossard, Longueuil, etc.) You will find the same quality as in downtown but for about $20 to $75 cheaper. And make sure that you verify if your breakfast is included in the price of your room because some times it is but they hotel concierge does not always tell you. Also many place are called motels but are very nice, clean a nd cheaper than hotels. Don't be afraid when you see motel (but I have to admit some motel are not decent at all but if you shop on the web the nice place are not afraid to give you avirtual tour).

Auberge Alternative: Old Montreal on the Cheap

Spent the last two nights of our vacation here and would definitely come back. The location is very good with a nice view from the bedroom windows (my bedroom, anyhow.) The door has a coded lock for those of us who stay out late and my traveling companion claims that they have a very big breakfast (nominal fee) in the cafe on the reception floor (I slept late.) Everyone was superfriendly-- guests, reception, even the housekeeping staff.

But...it is a hostel, which means there has to be flaws. Starting with the stairs--six flights of metal stairs, no elevators. Also, of the three bathrooms on our floor, two lacked locks. And while our room was very nice (two sets of bunks with lockable luggage space, big windows and lots of breathing room,) there were bunkbeds set up in open hallway-like areas and people stuck sleeping on lone mattresses because of overbookings. Lastly, we lost our booking the first weekend because I forgot to confirm nearer to the arrival date (I'd booked months early.) My fault, yeah, but keep in mind that you aren't booked here until you confirm the reservation!

B&B is the way to go!

To stay in Montreal, with it's old world flavour, I recommend staying in a B&B. It's a great way to meet some locals and find out where THEY go to eat and have fun and relax.

The architecture in many of the old buildings is also not to be missed.

I stayed in the Plateau area, above (north) and west of Parc du Fontaine (Park of the fountain).

Parc du Fontaine was the best, as it has the Theatre Verdure within, opens about 9 every night with a different entertainment - ballet, films, orchestra, jazz bands, shakespeare plays. All free! Just wear long sleeves or mosquitoe repellent.

There are lots of B&Bs in the area, just ask if they are in the Plateau neighbourhood.

B&B Square St. Louis: Victorian Charm in Latin Quarter

This beautiful victorian home which is featured on many Montreal postcards, is situated on Square St. Louis in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Your hosts Margaret & Drew, prepare a gourmet breakfast each morning which is enjoyed in an elegant victorian furnished dining room. Square St. Louis is bordered by the popular and fashionable Rue St. Denis and is just 1 block from the Sherbrooke Metro station. The city is easily navigated, and your hosts are very knowledgable in the local favorites as well as the tourist attractions.

The downstairs front bedroom features a king size bed and bay window overlooking the square. You also have the advantage of a private entranceway.

les appartment du centre ville: stretch your dollar and your stay

This place doesn't have the highest profile as other more well known hotels in Montreal. But when you compare the price to other hotels in Montreal it's a great deal. I liked this place because it was in a nice area quiet street and it served my needs. I don't need anything fancy just a clean place to sleep. The most basic of rooms are like little studios that come with kitchenette and if you're lucky like I was you can get a room with a fabulous view. I was on the 20th floor.

There's a pool but it was so cold. I never had time to swim I was too busy enjoying the city.

"Hotel de Ville"/City Hall: Hotel or Public Building?

When you look on your English language tourist map, you'll notice the "Hotel de Ville" and you may be a bit puzzled. Well, don't make the mistake that I made and assume that this is a hotel! This magnificent building at the crest of Place St. Jacques-Cartier in the heart of Old Montreal is actually City Hall. I walked in the lobby and it looked impressive, but I'm not aware if you can tour the building.

Auberge Alternative Hostel: Cheap sleeps

A hostel experience is unpredictable. One night, you may experience peace and quiet and a good night's sleep; the next night you might have a party with total strangers.
This hostel is located in a cool building on the west end of Old Montreal and offers private rooms as well as dorm room beds. I stayed in the "Big Blue Dorm" and paid $19 Canadian (around $12 U.S.) per night.

I definitely would consider at...

I definitely would consider at a B&B for the convenience of being close from the center and living with a local. Our guest Belva was very nice and her breakfast 'copieux'! The Downtown B&B network is a very useful link to keep in mind. The prices are really moderate, even more if you come from the US and are used to the idea of paying over 100 US $ per night. We paid 60 CAN $

Stay with friends

I stayed about one week with a friend of mine, therefore I have no special accomodation recommendation. The advantage of staying with local friends is that you get an insight in teh life of the locals.
