Holiday Inn-airport: Priceline boo boo

I was booking my hotel only about a month in advance and Priceline wasn't yielding any hotels for what I was seeing as normal rates on Bidding for Travel so I chalked it up to the fact that the Jazz Festival for going on. At one point I added in the airport area because we were getting in so late at night, what I didn't do was check the regular rates, I ended up only saving $9US.

In any event, I got the Holiday Inn at the airport for $80 per night plus $20 in taxes. As with most airport hotels, the Holiday Inn is not convenient to downtown Montreal so I suspect that most of their customers are airline personnel, business people and travelers with early or late flights. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to claim the GST refund since Priceline doesn't itemize taxes but I submitted it and it was refunded based on my calculation.

When we arrived 2 hours after we were supposed to, the place where we rented the car from was already closed so I remembered that the Holiday Inn had a free shuttle, we called from inside the airport because it was so late, I assume they run regularly but you might want to check this out. You can catch the shuttle just outside arrivals, look for the numbered signs with the hotel listed on it. They were nice enough to deliver us to the off site car rental location the next morning.

The room was a standard business type room with a king sized bed, an in room safe, TV, air conditioning.

The bathroom had minimal toiletries, plenty of hot water, decent towels and a hair dryer.

We didn't have a chance to use the pool but it looked nice and it was in the interior courtyard so it was covered in case of weather.

Check in was quick and friendly, no mention of Priceline and no need to even leave a credit card imprint.

Bed and Breakfast: Homey Atmosphere Away From Home- Chez Ileana

Excellent atmosphere. Very homey. I stayed in Chez Ileana for 3 nights very comfortably.
SERVICES
First thing I liked was the service of the owner herself, Ileana. From the time we arrived in her house, she gave us time to take a little rest and made us feel comfortable in our room. She then gave us brochures, maps and information we need for all the places in Montreal that we want to visit. The information she gave us was very useful and she even recommended us attractions that she does not want us to miss.

FACILITIES & AMENITIES
There are 2 bedrooms available in Chez Ileana, these are:
Queen Room: Shared Bathroom, Queen Bed, Books to Read, Air-Conditioning
Double room: Shared Bathroom, Double Bed, Television, Air Conditioning

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
If you want your stay in a B&B with a personal touch and well presented continental breakfast, then call Ileana, book a room and she will be more than happy to accommodate you.

Chez Ileana has a charming facilities. You will enjoy your scrumptuous breakfast in a delightful dining room or on garden deck. Ileana is bilingual and can provide helpful tips and guidance to activities. It is situated in antiques row which is approximately 15 minutes walk to the City Centre and 20 minutes walk to Old Montreal. Lachine Canal , bicycle and jogging paths is only 2 blocks away. Indoor swimming pool just across the street.

Chez Ileana: Cant recommend this place

I felt very unwelcome here, the inn keeper was a grumpy lady who i am not sure why she even has guests, i guess just for the money. Webpage says " enjoy scrumptious breakfast" but a scrumptious breakfast was simple cereal and fruit and medicore coffee and juice. The place was very tiny upstairs, three bedrooms all near eachother and a phone right outside my room that rang into all hours of the nite. I unplugged it once at 11:30 pm because i couldnt deal with it disturbing my sleep anymore. The innkeeper just plugged it back in the next day. Innkeeper had no regard for comfort of guests. Also i felt unwelcome, she always had a nasty expression on her face. In morning, she said " could you please sit out in living room while i am preparing breakfast, you make me uncomfortable in here when i am making breakfast". There is an eat in kitchen here, so its not like i was close to her, i stay in the table area, but she kicked me out! nasty lady. Then after feeding me cereal and boring fruit, 15 minutes later i would smell eggs and bacon and a real breakfast she cooked for herself and her daughter who was staying with her. Overall the lady just didnt seem to like guests, so not sure why she even opens her home. Too many rules too: make sure you wash water off the walls after a shower, no shoes inside( that i understand though), etc. Just not a pleasurable stay.

Additionally, the bed linens didnt smell fresh... the closets were filled with a bunch of junk and old clothes belonging to owner. It was clear she was not in a position to receive guests and obviously is in it just for the money without regard for the guest experience...

Old victorian brick home, good location because you can walk about 10 minutes to Georges vanier station....or maybe 10-12 minutes to bell center metro station area...15 minutes to st catherine street and maybe 20 min walk down notre dame street to the old city.. its a good walk but if its cold and you walk all the way to old city, walk around and then walk back, it could be a little brutal if its too cold... it was getting cold when i was there, so on my way back , stopped in the metro super market ( really nice by the way) and got some cookies and ended up bringing them back home because i didnt finish them all..... but i needed a break from the cold and stopped in this store..

Hostellerie Pierre du Calvet: A part of history

A nice romantic hotel for those of you who want to treat yourself. This is a unique chance to stay in an typical historical building at the heart of the Old Montreal. Staying there, you'll think you are a king or a queen. The architecture and furnitures are absolutely marvelous and the service is impecable.

You won't find another place like this...

Very well located in the middle of the Old Port (also 5 minutes of walk from Quartier Latin district, 10 minutes from the downtown area) and so gorgeous.

Auberge Pierre Du Calvet: A Historic Victorian Inn In Old Montreal

I've never been, but every time that I pass in front of it, I just want to go in, and live there.
It is so beautiful, small and quaint looking, you won't be able to resist either, if you love old victorian historic houses, that is. They even have a gorgeous victorian greenhouse they serve breakfast in. And a dining room where you half expect Sherlock Holmes to come down to, with his pipe in one hand and a glass of brandy or sherry in the other.

In fact, even if you don't have a room there, you can always make a reservation for their restaurant at +1(514)282-1725, where they serve refined French cuisine. Table d 'hote at CND$, $30 to $40 or a la carte $20 to $30. They also have a group menu available from 45$, for a 5 service menu.
Private dining rooms and conference rooms are also available if you wish so.

And their rooms are so romantic, they are totally restored with antiques, in an nostalgic European way. And they have a library that looks like the one I have always dreamed of owning, I'm so much in love with everything that is old and books!...No one ever wants to enter a book store with me anymore, without my firm promise of staying only 20 min.

Look up their web site, they have pictures there, of what it all looks like. Even if you are a Montrealer, you'll want to go there for the weekend!

Gorgeous victorian mansion, as much inside than outside. With a cosy and relaxed atmosphere.
They offer: Fax and copy machine service; In-room modem lines; Dry cleaning and laundry; Meeting rooms/conference rooms; External parking; Restaurant, French cuisine; Room service; Air conditioned; Radio AM /FM; Turn down service; Victorienne greenhouse and terrace; Library and smoking room.

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.

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.

La Maison du Prêt d'Honneur: Summer season hotel

This is a new and modern student apartment building that's used as a hotel during the summer season. The rates are quite reasonable, and you get relatively large rooms with clean bathrooms and a kitchen. We stayed there for about a week in August 2005 and found it quite OK. The location is fairly central (although it seems to me that Montreal doesn't really have a proper "centre"), close to Chinatown and not far away from the old town. The Metro is also in walking distance, about 5 minutes.

All the employees seem to be students on summer jobs, which means they're friendly, but often clueless and not really interested in offering quality service. The maid services are supposed to work every day, but in our experience, they came about every other day. Sometimes they changed the towels, sometimes not, sometimes they made one of the beds but not the other...

As so often in North America, the air conditioning is loud and blasting away at full power even when there's no reason for it. The only way to stop it is to open the window (at least that's possible).

Nice view, good location, good prices, apartments with proper kitchen, laundry room, 24 hrs convenience store and café in the building.

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 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.

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.
