I found the rooms to be quite charming, clean, with everything we needed. People were just fine, hotel was nice and quiet. We walked to everything we wanted to do. The only negative aspect was the parking garage underneath - difficult to drive into and small spaces inside.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Maritime Plaza Montreal

Maritime great value at any price!!!

from temptsboy
Its very simple this hotel is very very solid. I am not saying its perfect but the place is very nice. Decent pool, very very nice room and beds. My only gripe is that the ac doesnt blow out really cold air but its ok for the price you pay. All of these complainers are a bunch of cheapos who payed pennies and then expected the Ritz Carlton. I would recommend this hotel to anybody. Very very solid.

You get what you pay for

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband, 7 month old son, and I just returned from a weekend in Montreal. The hotel was not in the best location - but was only a block and a half from the Metro, which will take you most anywhere you want to go. Our room was clean, the airconditioning was intermittent, but the staff was very helpful and friendly, giving us good recommendations for restaurants and better places to go to exchange our money. We spent $25C on parking for two nights. On our next trip to Montreal we'll spend a little more money and stay in Old Montreal, but for what we paid, we were happy.

THE WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE EVER?

from A TripAdvisor Member
I will make this brief because I am wriitng this as my phones at work are ringing, and my client is waiting at reception. I am writing this review becuase YOU MUST BE WARNED ABOUT THE MARITIME HOTEL. I stayed there with a friend during the jazz festival and was horribly DISAPOINTED. The AC in the room didn't work, the ammenities were as bare as can be, the hotel DID NOT CHANGE THE SHEETS EVERY DAY, the ELEVATORS HARDLY MOVED, the sorounding Area was shady, far, and dirty. The staff had little to no idea how to direct us to events, and places. The parking was expensive, and the parking attendent even DRAINED THE BATTERY OF OUR CAR when we werent there. For some reason, a random cleaning lady kepT coming into the room early in the morning EVEN THOUGH WE HAD THE DO NOT DISTURB SIGN ON. Even a local girl said to me "your hotel is ----". You can get a REAL hotel with a spa, pool, and RECEPTION And Valet in a real nice neighborhood for $10 more a night. BUT if you still want to stay here, have fun, but dont use HOTELS BECAUSE THEY WONT LET YOU LEAVE... - GOOD LUCK TO YOU

Hotels.com * you on this one:

from A TripAdvisor Member
Look, if you’ve picked the Maritime you probably opted not to go to the nicest place to save some cash. You probably don’t know much about Montreal and you don’t want to spend the time researching where to go. So you checked out hotels.com. After all, you’re not there for the hotel but to see the city. That’s why I can ignore the fact that the amenities were weak, the air conditioning wasn’t working, and even the room didn’t look anything like the one pictured on hotels.com. But for a few more bucks you can stay at a much classier place like the Sheraton. I stayed at the Maritime for the jazz fest and I was so far from the action that the cabs I had to take back and forth would have equaled the difference in price between the Maritime and The Sheraton.

Plus The Maritime’s neighborhood is shady at night, seeing how these two haitian guys wanted to rob me and my friend. We had to sprint back to the hotel. I will admit that the people working there were cool, like the guy who works there who is the most valued customer at Woody's Strip Club. Listen, don’t be another American scammed by hotels.com!!! Do your homework. To quote a guy from montreal when asked about the Maritime, “It’s REALLY not cool.”

very seedy!

from Sumitup
The pictures available on line are misleading....our room was dirty, sheets were stained, towels frayed and rust stained. The hotel staff are very rude and not accustomed to providing any level of customer service. When speaking to some locals in Montreal, the overall message was - you are better off staying at the YMCA - certainly safer!!! I couldn't agree more. We had 4 nights booked, and vacated after one night!
It is not worth the money! Do not stay at this hotel.

Awesome Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights last summer and it was great!! Everyone was very friendly. The people at the front desk gave us directions to places and were extremely helpful. It was a wonderful hotel experience. The restaurant in the hotel was a bit pricey, but there is also a full bar which is convenient!!

Quite Pleased

from A TripAdvisor Member
I needed a place to stay in Montreal for the Grand Prix du Canada, and had a hard time finding a room at a well known hotel, and the Maritime Plaza seemed to be a good alternative to a "sure thing" hotel like a Marroit, Sheraton, etc. All in all, I can't find any reason to say the stay was not well above average, and I would stay there again. My room, which was on the executive floor, was tremendous. The furniture was as nice as any room I have had, including rooms at places such as the Ritz-Carlton. The place was very clean, and although some reviews mention only one elevator working, they were both working when I stayed.

This is a former travel lodge or some other type of "econo" hotel that over the years has been transformed into what can only be described as a paradox of a hotel. The hotel was designed with efficiency in mind, and so this place will never be a show place or a "destination" hotel. The lobby, while nice and clean and internesting in its current state, does not have the ability to leave the impression this is a top shelf hotel. It was not designed with that in mind, and so it does not say "this is a fancy place" when you walk in. The chandilier, and the mirrors amd the tile work are all ver nice and do the most that can be done with the structure, but it just is not a hotel that was designed to impress you and tell you that by enterring the doors, you "Have arribed." However, in the room, one has the feel that they are in such a hotel. The bathroom, although a bit smaller than one might expect in a true top shelf hotel, has the fixtures and accomodations one would find in such a hotel. The hallways are not the spacious hallways of a fancy hotel, and there is no room for fancy decorations and furniture in the hallways, but at least on my floor, the carpet was new, the place was spotless and the use of smoking and non-smoking floors was nice.


The restuarant is obviously a dinner or coffee shop in design, and now the place has a fancier use for it, but I never ate in the place, except for breakfast opn my last day in town, when it was raining. The breakfast buffet was fine, and I found the breads and sweet rolls to be very good.

The staff was helpful, and friendly.

The location is great. Two blocks walk to the metro station, and a few blocks walk to hundreds of shops, places to eat, drink, etc.

This is not a destination hotel (not the Intercontinental, etc.), no one would go there for the cache the place has, or its reputation or to spend the weekend AT the hotel, eating room service, eating at the restaurant etc. but if you want a place that is not so famous, in a great location, and has rooms that will blow you away for the price, try this place.

Good Location But Not a 4-Star Hotel

from KayLondonUK
The Hotel is adequate and basic but certainly not a 4-star hotel standard by any means. I travelled during the Grand Prix season so it was very expensive (even by London standards!). Paying around $CAD2,000 for 7 nights (inclusive of taxes and "charges") I thought at least breakfast would be included - no it wasn't. This puts me off travelling then to "developed" countries when you get no value - I paid for a flight, 4-star hotel (including breakfast) to Cuba for a week which cost me much less in what I paid just for this hotel in Montreal for a week.

The rooms are basic and nothing very grand. The only advantage is the location as major streets are within walking distance. This was my first visit to Montreal and my last. Next time its Costa Rica and those countries that need tourist $$s not rich countries like Canada and then you get no value and quality! Here you dont get what you pay for!!

Only one working elevator in 14 story hotel.

from A TripAdvisor Member
Hotel is OK but management is saving here and there. And it shows.

Just back from two nights and the elevators are still under repair. So crowded was the one working elevator that a sign was posted warning only 10 people allowed at any one time.

Only one elevator working in a 14 story building with long lines (people coming off of tour buses) in the lobby waiting to get on.

All in all just fine

from sitemaid
For the price the hotel was fine. The lovely comforters and multiple (different firmness) pillows were great. A tiny bit chintzy on the towels, but then I didn't ask for more. Location great if you don't mind and are able to walk several blocks. Only experience with restaurant was breakfast buffet, which I found overpriced and mediocre.
The pool may have been heated, but it was on the coooool side. Staff was friendly. Still only one elevator working. I probably would go back if I don't find a better deal at a 5 star hotel.

Top Local Tips for Montreal

Use the Subway Stay in a Hotel next to a Metro Station. It gets you where you need to go quickly. If you are there for the weekend, get a 3 day pass (it works for the subway and the buses).

Museum of Archeology Definitely worth the trip to this museum, if you like to go to museums. The visit will start with a cute movie outlining the history of old Montreal, and then you will have the option of a guided tour through relics of old buildings- I would take the tour. It is helpful and is included in the fee you pay to get into the museum.

Hard Rock Café Be sure to visit the Hard Rock Café for an excellent meal in a great atmosphere. Only a short walk from the hotel
