Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn Select Montreal Centre Ville Hotel

An OK stay in Chinatown

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just got back from a stay at this hotel July 29-Aug 1, 2005. Overall, an average hotel - booked though Priceline for $72 USD a night, so it was a bargain - but didn't get anything exciting. Checked in late evening, had requested two beds but were told this was not available. Were provided a cot at no charge.

The room was OK - the hotel is a U-shape, so a lot of the rooms face inwards. We found the hallways and public areas dark and a little dingy. The room was the same, and actually even had cigarette burn marks near the sink. Not so nice. The rest of the room was clean and tidy, but nothing exceptional. Bed was a little lumpy.

Overall, an average stay. I wouldn't recommend paying much more than what we paid for this hotel.

Great location, friendly staff, great room.

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here: 7 july 2005 - 8 july 2005
Easy to find coming from the highway, and located near the old city this is a perfect place to stay. It's situated in Chinatown, the reception is on the 2nd floor and is surrounded by a bar, restaurant and chinese inside-garden. There is also a parking for only CA$16/24hrs.
On arriving we immediately got a larger room without asking on the 6th floor. This was a nice upgrade, larger beds, a desk, very large room and extra seats and table. The only thing was it was quite a long walk to the elevator. There was free WiFi available throughout the hotel.

This hotel comes at a fairly cheap price, offers a lot, friendly staff, and a great location near the old city and subway. What else would you want. I would certainly stay here again.

Disappointed

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at this Holiday Inn recently for a week and was disappointed. While the amenities were nice enough, the price paid ($199/night) did not result in the kind of service desired.

The room was okay, but the key card had to be reset after every use, very annoying during a six day stay. There was a great deal of difficulty in confirming the reservation and ensuring the proper credit card was charged. Also, while I provided my "Priority Club" membership on check-in, it was not entered until check-out, so any perks due were not provided.

avoid this hotel if you can

from A TripAdvisor Member
The only good for this hotel is the location. The service is bad. Staff is not friendly. The carpet is old. Overcharge on my credit card and get no response from hotel about this issue (the hotel staffs never return the call although they claim they will). Have to escalate to Head office to resolve this issue and get my overcharge money back. Avoid this hotel if you can

Not impressed

from A TripAdvisor Member
Wasn't very impressed. Many little things added up to me wanting to stay clear in the future:

- two lights were broken when I arrived, bulb blown in one, and the switch missing on the other. The service man replaced the bulb but said there was nothing he could do about the other. How about replace the lamp?? When I checked out two days later the lamp was still just an ugly ornament in the room
- noise carries... there must have been a school group in the hotel as at 2:00 AM both nights I was woken up with a lot of loud chatting in the hallways
- remote control was old and hard to use
- the hotel is very dark and dreary. Not a very cheery atmosphere at all. I think it is quite old. Time for a reno.
- the view from the window was of the inner portion of the building which was a bed of rock on the roof of the restaurant. Uuuuuugly!!
- when checking in they neglected to give me the breakfast coupon that apparently I was entitled to.

Oh, well.

Age showing

from FamilySixPack
At one time I would have given the hotel a 4 rating but as time moves on it has moved down to a 3.5 rating. We visit Montreal at least annually (7yrs+ now) and make it a point to stay here because of its convenient location and staff. Counter to another review we find the hotel to be very child friendly with its uncrowded pool and serene fish pond which fascinates the young ones. Our first few visits ensured our return stays as the hotel was new and the staff extremely friendly and helpful (same staff over these years) , but over the years the rooms have started to show their age and the service has declined slighty as people have moved on and given these changes we may move onto another hotel as well...

Comfort, Good Service, Great Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We are a family of four with two young children and had a very good experience here during a winter weekend in Montreal. The pool is small but perfect for young children. The lobby is delightful as you can walk on bridges over a shallow pond that is the home of a group of koi fish. The location of the hotel is excellent -- right next to Chinatown and walking distance from Old Montreal. The subway is right across the street. The staff responded quickly to special requests for extra pillows and a sewing kit. Parking is a bit expensive at $16 per night, but you have in/out privileges. We got a good price thru Priceline and found the Holiday Inn to be a comfortable place to stay while exploring the city. Special recommendation: Try "Eggspectation" for a great breakfast. Go to the one on St. Jacque, only a few blocks from the hotel.

Nice Hotel

from utica1999
Nice Hotel, right in China Town area. Quiet and great reception area with fish pool and waterfall. Parking was 16 dollars per day though. There was a cheaper garage one block up $12 per day. Lots of Chinese Restarants within short distance. Aviod the large buffet though (forgot name), not quite the quality that most American Chinese Buffets are. I got a great price on hotwire so overall I was very happy with my stay. Feb 2005

Good location

from rizzop
My family of four stayed in this hotel on October 7, 2004 for one night. We got a good rate through the Entertainment book.

The Holiday Inn Select is in Chinatown and is close to some tourist attractions. The room itself was nice with a view of the Old Town part of Montreal. I'm not sure about the other room views. There was some graffiti noticed on nearby buildings on the other side of the hotel.

There was a pool, hot tub and sauna that we used both at night and in the morning. The water was a little cool and the pool seemed small, considering how many people stay in the hotel. No one else used the pool while we were there so maybe it is big enough. The exercise room is in the same area (on the third floor) and it seemed pretty good.

We did not take advantage of the spa nor did I eat at the restaurant so I cannot comment on those things. Holiday Inns don't usually have a continental breakfast. We did get an overpriced pizza from room service. The ad said something like "pizza from $6" but we paid a total of $18 for a medium pepperoni. The parking fee is $14 and though the guy at the front desk said that it was validated, the amount was charged to our bill. It wasn't a surprise thanks to comments I read here before I arrived. There are signs everywhere telling patrons to take your parking ticket to the front desk before attempting to depart the parking garage. Anyway, I'll reiterate that you need to add that in when calculating the cost of your stay. Also, note that a concierge controls the carts that bring your luggage to your room.

The lobby area is very nice with the fish swimming in the ponds and the whole Chinese bit.

One of the people that worked behind the desk rides his bike to work and lent us his air pump to blow up some inner tube ring bathing suit attachments so our pre-schoolers could swim unaided. That was pretty helpful.

I'd consider staying there again in the future but would check alternatives.

No privacy

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed in this hotel for few times. Here are my experiences

a) There was no privacy at all, the cleaners just opened the doors without knocking (happened everytime I stayed)

b) One time, the bathroom light was burned out, the hotel would not fix it due to no one worked after hours

The only things I liked this hotel were close to ChinaTown, good underground parking

Top Local Tips for Montreal

Museum and Metro Pass A 3 day pass gets you admission to over 30 museums for $35. This is a great bargain. Many museum admissions start at $5-$8 and up to $15 each. For an additional $10 you get a 3-day Metro pass good on public train and buses. Ask info centers for the bus and metro map for all the routes available.

Have to try the Montreal bagels! They are delicious, especially when warm. There's a great bakery on Rue St. Catherine across from 3 Amigos (a great Mexican Restaurant). The bakery has a large viewing window so that you can watch them hand make the bagels in an open oven.

expensive It seemed to me that the food and drink in Montreal were extremely expensive. Our hotel was a pretty good deal but we made up for that in what we paid for food. More expensive than New York City in my opinion.
