“Old Montreal or Vieux Montreal is the oldest part of the city. Rue Notre Dame and Rue Saint Paul are the main streets of the area. Old Montreal is a must visit for romantics.”
“The tourist areas of Montreal are mostly near each other, essentially downtown encompassing rue Sherbrooke, rue St. Catherine and Rene Levesque Boulevard....and Old Montreal. Old Montreal is very lovely, with smaller boutique-style hotels.Whichever area you choose, they are within 20 minutes walking distance from each other.”
Some reviews about the hotels and the locations:
Le Place d'Armes Hotel & Suites: “Phenomenal hotel with fabulous service!. Spent a few nights in this luxurious hotel a few weeks ago. This was a beautiful hotel in a great location in the old part of town. We enabled great views of the city. This hotel had been recommended to me by a friend and I would have no hesitation in passing on that recommendation.”
Hotel Nelligan: “This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. There is a fantastic terrace on the rooftop that has a spectacular view of the river and the top of Notre Dame. Close to Notre Dame and great restaurants and in the heart of beautiful old Montreal. Comfortable, convenient, luxury. The location was great, right in Old Montreal, near the canal. Easy walk to metro, running/biking trails, bike rental stations, and of course all of the charm and fun of Old Montreal.”
Le Saint-Sulpice: “This is a great hotel in a perfect location. The rooms are suites, with a living room, bedroom and separate bathroom. The staff was very welcoming and very professional. Great location right in the heart of Old Montreal. The location was perfect, we spent a lot of time walking around Old Montreal, which is beautiful, and it was an easy walk to the convention center/theatre area where the Jazz Festival was going on.”
Auberge du Vieux-Port: “Romantic and lovely. We definitely loved it better this time around in the height of summer, with the lovely horse-drawn carriages and all the bustle and beauty of Old Montreal. The staff have been wonderful, cheerful and helpful.”
Hotel Dauphin Montreal Downtown: “Excellent location with reasonable prices. This hotel completely suited our needs and would return here if I traveled to Montreal again. The hotel is very modern and clean. We were impressed with our first walk around. The location is great and is only a 10 minute walk to the Old City district, in which there are plenty of great restaurants, bars, and gift shops.”
Embassy Suites Montreal: This was my second stay at Embassy Suites Montreal. The hotel had a great location about 4 miles from the race site and Montreal Casino. Check-in: Flawless, the bi-lingual staff are eager to help, knowledgeable, and friendly. Each night of your stay comes with two free drink coupons for the managers reception, and a breakfast pass. Room was ready as promised.”
Marriott SpringHill Suites Old Montreal: “The location of this hotel was perfectly located in the heart of old montreal, tucked in a little side street. The location to St.Catherine's street or the shopping area maybe ok for some people to walk but is a long walk. Overall, a good hotel in an excellent location.”
Hotel Zero 1: “We were impressed when we arrived at this boutique hotel. Ideal position,close to Metro, buses and airport express next to hotel. Central to downtown, old Montreal and very walkable. Zero 1 is centrally located, it was so easy to walk to everything I wanted to see. I travel here yearly and was very impressed at the changes to my favorite hotel,in my favorite city. I will definately be returning.”
Holiday Inn Select Montreal Centre-Ville: “A Great Choice in Downtown Montreal. We recently stayed here for the second time. The location is excellent, right on the edge of Old Montreal, as well as right on the edge of Chinatown, as well as being right across from the Metro. We would definately stay there again. The hotel is in a nice location for a downtown hotel and there are restaurants within walking distance.”
Travelodge Montreal Centre: “We spent a couple of nights in this hotel. It is well suited for people who don't look for exceptional comfort and look for a place to stay in downtown Montreal for a reasonable price. The hotel was a little below in terms of our cleaningness rexpectations, but overall it was acceptable.”
