Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Montreal Bonaventure Hotel

Pleasant Stay at the Hilton

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family stayed here Aug 17 through 21. The front desk staff was friendly. We had a lovely room. Very clean. The buffet breakfast was wonderful. (Nice staff) The kids enjoyed the gardens and the pool. It is a perfect hotel for families with children. The concierge was right on in her recommendations of restaurants for families (ranging from quick bites to elegant family-friendly spots.) The location is convenient to the metro and for walking to the Downtown and even old Montreal. Warning: There is construction noise most evenings from about 5 pm until 8:45pm. It didn't effect our stay because we were out for dinner at that time. Overall, a nice stay.

Well located helpful hotel

from alanreynolds
I stayed Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 August 2004. The hotel has a wide drive in from Gauchetiere (street) and splendid entrance leading immediately to lifts to the top two floors of the skyscraper. Reaching the hotel from the bus terminal or train station (both serve Dorval Airport) is easy as the hotel is linked to Montreal's extensive underground walkway system. My HH Honors card gave me an upgrade so my room 1338 may have been better than average. It had a huge bed, desk, armchairs and was generally well equipped. Bathroom was on the small size, as the door opening inwards almost touched the WC. Everything was spotless for my arrival and during my stay. Reception staff were friendly and helpful with answering several questions. There is an outdoor heated pool about 15 metres long open from 06.30 every morning. Business Centre closed at weekends: nearest internet access is coin machines in railway station or at Chapters Bookshop. I had one dinner in hotel. A restaurant is closed for refurbishment. The kitchens were under pressure due to a wedding reception and though the service was again friendly, I would rate the food as average only. Overall I would certainly stay again for the hotel's location, friendliness and outdoor pool.

May not come back!

I recently spent 4 days at the Hilton Bonaventure. The hotel was OK. It did not deserve the 5star rating granted by some websites. The rooms could use some upgrades. The Executive rooms were not any better than the regular rooms. Compared to the Hilton Millenium in New York or the Hilton in Beijing, Hilton Bonaventure was like a Motel 6. The front desk staffs were rude at times. The location is pretty good though. The Executive lounge was closed when I was there. It was supposed to be re-opened during my stay but got indefinitely delayed.

The room could use some updating

from Jerri_Blank
The room I had was small, but had a great view. Your on top of a high-rise directly over train tracks, but no noise. The lighting in the room was really bad, made the rooms decor look worse than it was. The room service was very good. The front desk service was not.
It's also rather hard to find, the outside of the building has no big Hilton sign or anything. Just a tiny placard by the front gate. Also, when I was there the 1st floor area was under construction, and the signs to the actual hotel lobby were misleading.

Hate the service!

from Eti22
We went there 4th of July weekend. I chose Hilton because of its reputation and most importantly it had an outdoor pool.
It was definitely an unpleasant experience for us. The receptionist was very unpolite and unhelpful, the room was extremely noisy and after the first night I asked them to change it, at least they were fine with it. The hotel was extremely crowded, probably because of the festival. It was impossible to go into the pool, because of the families with kids (tons of them), they also had a dining area right next to the pool which made the pool area extremely crowded and noisy.
Needless to say I had no fun at all. Plus the check out person was really unprofessional and I had to report her. The manager was responsive though. I had one of my worst vacations in a 5 star hotel. The service we received was definitely not even 1 star. I would never go there again.

Great hotel

from ccbjupiter
Beautiful hotel. Grounds were well kept. Trees and waterfalls give you a feeling you're anyplace but on top of a building in Montreal. Only bad feature was just one restaurant was open and not necessarily at convenient times. My husband is diabetic and we could not find anything open in the immediate vicinity on a Saturday late afternoon. The staff overall were wonderful - except in the restaurant. They could use some "friendly" training.

Great Weekend at the Hilton

from A TripAdvisor Member
I arranged a trip for 2 couples to go to Montreal for the Canada Day weekend. The jazz festival was on and we had a wonderful time. I have stayed at the Montreal Bonaventure Hilton Hotel many times before and it has never failed to please. Both rooms were clean and quiet. the staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice hotel in a great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We really liked this hotel, although there were some minor problems with our reservation. However, they quickly resolved them to our satisifaction. Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The location was great and the pool was really nice. We didn't notice the construction noise that the previous reviewer mentioned.

convenient, but beware of construction noise

from BusinessTraveler00
We booked thru Priceline and were happy to see that we got a 4* Hilton in a good location. The Hilton is in a very convenient part of downtown with nice ammenities. We didn't use the pool, but it looked great. The room was large, bathroom upscale, and the mini bar was big enough to store some bottled water we'd bought during the day.

One BIG downside was the drilling/pounding noise that went on each day when we were in the room from about 6-8pm. After walking for many hours, I was looking forward to some quiet time before heading out for the evening. No chance. When I called the front desk to inquire, they said it was construction going on 17 floors down, that it affected all the rooms of the hotel, and that the construction permit allows them to go until 9pm --which it did each day, giving me quite a headache.

The hotel is very nice, but you may want to ask about the status of the construction.

Hilton Bonaventure was good

from MP817
The Hilton Bonaventure was a very nice hotel. The management was very friendly, and best of all, we had very nice weather. The hotel was NOT in a "seedy" area, but in the Metro underneath the hotel, a bunch of beggars hung out there. The hotel was not completely Non-Smoking, so some parts smelled bad. The Hilton does offer Non-Smoking rooms, so we took advantage of that. The room service was ok, but they really don't care about taking your plates back to the kitchen to get washed, (If you had room service.) Our plates sat outside our room for two days with caked on food. After talking to the front desk about it several times, nothing happened. The maid was the one who actually called the room service personel to pick it up.
The bathroom is very clean and has a wide variety of bathing oils, etc. The shower head is a Grohe, (sp?) and had many nice settings. A nice touch that I LOVED, was that the TV speakers are hooked up to the bathroom too, and you don't have to miss your favorite show's audio. The beds are comfortable, and all of the lights are florescent, so they are energy efficient, and very bright. The only bad thing about the room though, was we had to ask to get the heat turned on, even though it was summer (The AC was on for who knows how long?)
The Hilton has a "HotSpot" by the pool area, so if you bring your wireless router card, you are in luck, and you have free internet. If you don't, you can get High Speed Internet for $10.00 a day, and like $5.00 for dial up. The rates may change though, but that is what my rates were. All in all, come to the Hilton Bonaventure, you will have a good time!!!

Top Local Tips for Montreal

Pintxo (Spanish Tapas) Is A Must!! Located a quick five-minute walk from the Sherbrooke Metro station, at 256 Rue Roy (2 blocks west of St-Denis), Pintxo was the highlight of my recent dining tour of Montreal. The tapas are exceptional and reasonably priced. The grilled calamari over an onion confit was especially memorable, as was the mushroom caps stuffed with duck confit. The service was also friendly. Just be sure to make a reservation, even on a week night!

Swartz`s Go To Swartz`s for a montreal smoked meat and pickle

Bring lots of cash... Lots of moolah would be really helpful.
