We like everything about the Hotel Sofitel in Montreal..... the warmth of the hospitality, the comfort and appearance of the rooms, the terrific dining room. We've stayed there twice and recommend it highly.

Stayed at the Sofitel in Montreal during the Grand Prix weekend in June 2004. The hotel was very modern with large rooms and large upscale bathrooms. Staff were very nice and accommodating. Hotel is centrally located for all the events that go on that weekend. Best part was as this is a European hotel this is where virtually every Formula 1 team was staying for the weekend. Had the opportunity to have casual conversations in the lobby with many of the mechanics, engineers and also saw several of the drivers. An F1 fans dream hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Sofitel Montreal Hotel

Great 5 star stay, however...

from 4Thomas
I stayed with my wife Aug 10-14, 2004. Great place, excellent location, superb and friendly staff. Note that if you like a firm bed and your partner a soft feather-like bed you must ask for two beds -- if not, one of you is going to have an uncomfortable night. The room was nice, clean, and with lots of amenities. In one word --great!
However, in selecting a room, bear in mind that rooms xx14-xx20 (we stayed at xx19) have a direct and unobstructed line of sound to the ice-maker... and one can hear when someone gets ice and the machine refills... Late at night it is noisy. The machine is located in a cubicle with NO doors and open to the elevator lobby and rooms.
Unless you have a very generous expense account, stay away of the Renoir and room service -- very, very expensive. If you are into steaks, you must visit L'Alouette on St. Catharine St. For breakfast and snacks, visit MBCo on Stanley St.
Tax refunds: You only are refunded the federal taxes, and each receipt has to be over Can$ 50. But the total amount of your purchases has to be over Can$ 200. (Easy w/ your hotel bill!) Use only the official Customs Form (red booklet) that can also be downloaded. They'll mail you a check in US$. You have to stamp your receipts at the Custom Office (just by the same place you exit when arriving). There is an ubiquitous "Tax Free" bluish form from a private company. You get the money at the airport, but they skim 15% of your refund.
Beyond the local places, take time to visit St. Anne de la Bellevue, about 45 minutes of travel by commuter train west of Montreal. Very nice town by the lake and locks, with very nice boardwalk restaurants.

Sofitel Was Fabulous!

from scooter0304
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Sofitel from July 16 - 21. Everything was absolutely wonderful. The service was great. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The room had a fabulous view of the city. I would definitely stay there again the next time I visit Montreal!

My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel for seven days from June 21-28. We were treated like royalty from the minute we stepped out of our car. We were greeted with a "Bonjour" and a smile by the bellmen, the concierge, the registration attendants and everybody that walked though the lobby. The $26 parking fee (per day) which includes valet service is steep but reasonable compare to public parking throughout the city.
The rooms are just as portrayed in the website- light and bright and spacious. We were on the 3rd. I wish I had requested a city view, though. We had a partial view of the city and the little I could see was enchanting. Montreal is more beautiful at night.
The Renoir, the hotel restaurant was inviting but the prices were outrageous. We had most of our meals in local reaturants. I would recommend either "Chez Cora" or "Eggspectations" for breakfast. They are about two blocks from the hotel- walking distance. They are both very affordable ($4-$8 us) and you get so much food for your money. We could hardly finish our plates.
We decided to take a tour of the city to give us an overview of the city. We then decided to go back to points of interest.
Old Montreal was the most romantic part of the city. The Caleche ride on the cobble stones though the old country was relaxing. I was not impressed with the restaurants but the pastry shops and coffee shops are a must.
There is so much to do in Montreal. The West side is prettier than the East side, by the way. The Sofitel is two blocks from St-Catherine St. (shopping galore).
Have a great time, eh!
I would return to the Sofitel without hesitation.

Guest Treated As a King

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed with my wife at the Sofitel Montreal on June 19-24, 2004. Beautifull Lobby and Reception, Excellent Room in size and comfort, King Size Bed with goose feathers, fantastic view, bathroom with everything you can imagine for your comfort. If you request any service, the answer will come in minutes, the quality of the staff is ten stars. My special appreciation on Mr.Neto for the general quality of the service. It's one of the best hotels I've been in the last 30 years. I'd stay again and recommend it for everybody.

Very highly recommeded

Treated like Royalty

from A TripAdvisor Member
I spent five weeks at the Sofitel and enjoyed every minute of it. It is definitely upscale and I was working all hours of the day and night and entering the room was a joyful experience from the flowers to the chocolate and CD relaxation disk, fruit bowls, etc. Everyone knew my name and I felt just great about the whole experience. My personal applause to Marie-Pierre and her whole staff for a job well done!
Best Regards...Bob//

Terrific - Boutique Hotel Feel

from gwpm
Fabulous hotel from the first contact with staff to the beautiful comfortable rooms. Upscale without being stuffy, the staff couldn't do enough to help us. Chic decor and the location is perfect.

Really GREAT Hotel-3/19-3/21, 2004

from bobodl
Just came back from a wonderful stay at the Sofitel. The service was out of the world. Everyone was extremely friendly and easy to deal with. The concierge was able to offer us all sorts of information for the city-even printed out some descriptions for some nightlife. As for wake-up calls, they even offer to call us twice on their own initiative in case we can't get up the first time. The parking was a little pricey ($26 CAD for 24hrs), but well worth the valet service and very convenient. I have to say that everyone at this hotel goes above and beyond the call of duty. And, the rooms are really nice-especially the beds and the downcomforter. I was able to get a room with a king size bed for $80 US. The hotel quoted us $99CAD for an additioanl nite which is equivalent to $76 US.

Best in Montreal!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've done more traveling the first two months of 2004 than I did during all of 2003, and among all the hotels I've stayed at, this place was the best. Having stayed at the Sofitels in Philly and Manhattan last year, I was eager to try the more "French" version of modern French luxury. My stay was near perfect; I got the one-bedroom King suite with the soaking tub, and aside from the small, modern padded luggage"love seat", the suite was beautiful. TIP: Book online. I paid 1/3 of the rack rate for my suite. Sofitel does their beds a bit differently; there's a big, fluffy down duvet on top, with a warmer blanket at the foot of the bed. There is only one sheet, resting (not tucked in) on top of another big, fluffy mattress cover. The duvet acts as top sheet/blanket all in one (it's so warm, you don't need anything else), and the mattress cover layer is so soft, you begin to feel as if you're being hugged. Heavenly. If you're not in the mood to be gouged by room service, call the Clef d'Or Concierges and they'll be more than happy to hook you up with Montreal's finest (or cheapest) take-out and delivery. There's this pizza place around the corner that makes their crust like a French baguette. Mmmm. At the hotel, the food was quite expensive, but the breakfast was exceptionally good. I liked the croissants so much, on the day I checked out I ordered a basket of nine for the drive home. They even packed an array of spreads for me in there...that's the thing about Sofitel. The little touches and personal, first-name service set them apart from big American chains, and it's the key to their appeal. From the practical (extra wood hangars and a Sofitel umbrella in the closet) to the cool (orchids and candles in the corners, and a staff member at your door every evening with 2 bottles of evian and tomorrow's printed weather report), I was constantly impressed...and I'm a tough cookie when it comes to hotels, especially when criss-crossing the eastern seaboard like a madman.
C'est tres formidable, Sofitel: you've earned a customer for life.

Best value for the money

Top Local Tips for Montreal

Mikasa Sushi Restaurant Great sushi restaurant, really nice atmosphere and decor. One block away from the Sofitel Montreal.

Ethnic food Although it sounds strange, there is great family-run portguese restaurants in Montreal. Cannot go wrong with any restuarant on St. Laurent.

Taxi service at airport is the WORST in the world The taxi service can mean a wait for up to an hour, You go through narrow passages. Its like going into Ellis Island in the 20's, you're expecting someone to come up and take you top the de-lousing station.
