The hotel is in a very good location- you can walk to Chinatown and the Old City with little difficulty. The staff at this hotel was incredible and very friendly! They didn't have the room we requested available, so they gave us a free upgrade without any questions. The rooms are awesome! Very clean and very comfortable. Great stay!
Suite was better than expected, very clean, but still pretty basic. The super-nice staff, terrific location, and reasonable price are the reasons to stay here, if you want a suite hotel. Good grocery and take-out food options just a couple of blocks west (at Complexe Desjardins) and restaurants of Rue St. Denis a couple of blocks east; less-expensive parking at the Bibliotheque Nationale, a few blocks to the northeast; subway stop a couple of blocks to the southwest. Walk south to Chinatown and Vieux Montreal, walk north and west along Rue. Ste. Catherine for lots and lots of shops. Even McGill, the Musee des Beaux-Arts, and the trendy Plateau neighborhood are within walking distance on a fine day.
Staff very friendly and helpful when asked directions and places to eat. Bed was above average in comfort and room was very clean and comfortable. Hotel was in easy walking distance to cruise ship pier. Lot of interesting things in area to observe. Only two blocks from china town with lots of shops. Evening entertainment consisted of lots of sport bars but not much else in close area.
I really liked the location in Montreal near the old town and waterfront, and near the Metro stations to get to the rest of the island. The parking was fine and I felt my car was secure. The kitchen in the suite was much better than anticipated.
We stayed here in May despite some doubt because of some of the previous reviews. Well the place was perfect for us. Our unit was a mini apartment on the 13th floor facing the big street Rene Levesque that the hotel is on. The views of the city were great! Including the thousands of protesting students that passed in front for over an hour and a half. The room was split into four parts, a bedroom with a big closet, writing desk and air conditioning unit, the good sized bathroom, a small kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, sink, dishwasher, toaster, dishes and ample counter with breakfast stools and an adjoining living room area with lamps, a couch, coffee table and a big flat panel HD telvision. All was clean and tastefully done. The hotel had free wifi, a business center with computers and printers, a pretty good snack bar on the honor system, a laundry room with free washers and dryers, an excercise room and underground parking. There was a grocery store two blocks away and since we had a refrigerator we stocked up on food and saved money as we enjoyed our sandwiches, salads, drinks and snacks as we relaxed after a day of sightseeing and touring. The staff at the front desk was alway courteous and helpful especially Chad. They gave us great tips on what to see and do. The hotel was very secure in that it took your room card to access everything including the elevator. The hotel was great for all the above reasons plus it was in a fantastic location within walking distance to Old Montreal and the port, Chinatown and St. Catherine Street. Great place to stay even though your room is not done every day.
BED BUGS. DIRTY. AVOID. THERE WERE BED BUGS!!!!!!!!!!
We enjoyed our stay. We go to Montreal often and would definitely stay at this hotel again.
This was a nice hotel for the price. Great location and easy to get to.
While the hotel looks OK in the pictures on the website, it actually wasn't all that impressive. For the price I paid, it should have had more frills and amenities. I felt like I was staying at the YMCA. The only hotel parking was in their garage and it wasn't free. The valet looked like the smelly valet from the classic Seinfeld episode, and I absolutely refused to let him touch my car. I insisted that I drive it into their lot, and they raised a big stink about that (no pun intended). I eventually won that argument but they didn't like it one bit and treated me like [bleep] afterwards. What were they planning on doing with my car?, I had to wonder. I wouldn't let them keep my keys either. They said they needed it in case they had to move it. Why? I parked it in a spot where it was impossible to be blocked in or block anyone else in. Again, I suspect they were planning on taking it for a joyride (I own a very fast car). Not happy with them, but again, I insisted and no one was going to take my car from me. The hotel staff was terrible and when a problem with my bill arose that was not my fault, they insisted that I was the one that was wrong. I had to eat $80 because their website lacked the details about certain things. What a rip-off. You could probably find any place in Montreal better than this one to stay.
Room was clean, spacious and with a comfortable bed. Pillow were not usual flat hotel pillows...nice touch. Service was excellent. After 7 years of travel to Montreal, we have finally found a hotel that is up to our standards with breaking the bank.
Excellent location, walking distance to just about everywhere you would want to go. Staff was great. Rooms aren't totally modern like picture indicates, but good for the price. Tried to find off-site parking for cheaper, but with red light district just around the corner decided to spend the $ a night.
My husband & I visit Montreal frequently and for the past 5 years, we have attended the annual Canadian Grand Prix races, cringing at the increase in hotel prices that occur for this particular weekend. I'm happy to report that our 3-night stay at the Candlewood Suites was fantastic & impressive! I would describe the price as 'BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK'. We paid $142/night Cdn (taxes in) for the three nights. We stayed in a Queen Studio that included a stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and 4-cup coffee maker. The suite was L-shaped making us feel like we had a bit of privacy for the bedroom & it included 2 large TV's. The bedroom TV had a DVD player attached to it. A clock radio was missing from the bedside table but one phone call to the Front Desk resulted in a prompt delivery of this. The suite was clean, included 2 closets (small front hall closet & large bedroom closet). There were 2 dressers (one in bedroom, other used as TV stand in family room area). The underground parking is located at the hotel next door (Holiday Inn Express Suites). The Front Desk Staff as well as the Parking Valets were all very friendly & well-informed about activities occuring throughout the city. We were advised that this hotel is geared for 'long-stay' travellers and therefore, housekeeping is offered once/week. I wasn't sure if I was keen on this. However, when we needed some fresh towels, we picked them up from the Front Desk and left the dirty towels in the Trash Chute/utility closet area down the hall on our floor. It was very nice NOT to be disrupted by Housekeeping knocking on the door waiting to clean the room on a daily basis. We'll definitely stay here again!
