Just stayed one night. The hotel is in the Latin quarter and if that is where you want to be try it out. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and the rooms are comfortable and fairly large.
The reception area is small and access is a little difficult from the street for those less capable. Also the elevator is old and small (there are four floors). There are no dining facilities but there is a great restaurant right next door on one side and a cellar bar on the other side.
Parking is around the corner at an underground public lot. The inconvenience is having to return the parking pass to the hotel after exiting the park as it is not possible to turn back on to St Denis.
For a reasonable cost ($89) if you want to be in this part of town, it is worth a try, but don't expect the Ritz.

Historical Traveller Reviews of St Denis Hotel

Loved it!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My Boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel for 3 days in early April, and had a wonderful stay. The front desk is VERY helpful whether we asked for directions or reccomendations they never seemed fussed to answer us with the best of their ability. The hotel is VERY centrally located as well. Right by the UQAM metro station (which is a major hub on the metro line), as well as Old Montreal. St Denis Street houses so many restaurants and cute cafes and bars we couldn't choose where to eat!
The hotel is very clean and the complimentary breakfast next door at the connecting cafe was delicious and very accomoadting before a day out in the city. EVERYONE spoke English so there were no language barriers to overcome or slow down our trip. Our only disappointment was that there was no mini-fridge, however, we managed without it!
I highly reccomend this hotel.

Great Location!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at St. Denis and loved it! The room was clean, and the hotel staff was friendly. There is an amazing bar and restaurant attached to the hotel, so that was great. We had an amazing time and would definitely stay there again. Enjoy!

Friendly clean hotel, with wonderful stafrf

from ArthurFinkPhoto
Staff were particularly helpful, rooms were simple but very clean. There's a delighful restaurant next door. The continental breakfast included was minimal, but full menu was available.

nice room, in the heart of the city

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were pleasantly surprised, when we came to Hotel St. Denis. The room we had was clean and quiet, the price was excellent, and we were right downtown close to everything we wanted to see. The little cafe attached to the hotel was really nice, and the breakfast they served us which is included, was excellent. Not just your plain old continental breakfast. The hallways look like they need some work but the room was stylish and very comfortable. The one draw back is that parking is behind the hotel in an underground garage, that isn't attached to the hotel. We had to run with our suitcase in the rain from the garage to the hotel lobby, but it wasn't that far. We really liked it here and would definitely stay again.

Fantastic Hotel

Six of us stayed at the Hotel St Denis during Comedy Fest for 5 days. It was probably the best vacation we have ever had. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were very nice, even when we rolled in at 5 o'clock in the morning.!!! The resturant had really good food (and I am fussy).

If you go to the resturant in the afternoon I suggest the Cheese Plate and ask the waiter recommend a wine to go with it !!!!

We are definatly returning.

A great Montreal find

from A TripAdvisor Member
I booked this hotel based on the positive TripAdvisor reviews of it that I read, and I was very pleased with my stay. My boyfriend and I were there for one night in August, and we loved the price, location, friendly service, complimentary breakfast, and underground parking. We stayed in a queen-sized room, which was on the small side, but quite comfortable for our one night and had all of the amenities that we expected. The breakfast was served in a bistro adjacent to the hotel and there were excellent choices. There were also Montrealers at the table next to ours, which I take as a good sign that it's more than just a place for the hotel's tourists. The hotel has a great downtown location, very close to a major metro station and a popular stretch of St Denis St., and within reasonable walking distance of many terrific neighbourhoods and attractions. I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone because I think that it is such a great deal.

For the money, it was a good buy

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed in this hotel because of the cheap price. The room was clean and we didn't seem to have the same issues that previous guests had. Each stay comes with free breakfast in the French Resturant. We like the resturant so much that we also had a dinner there. It was the best meal we had all week! The only thing we didn't like about the stay was the location. It was in the more bohemian section of town and we actually got verbally assulted by a strung out kid hanging out in front of the hotel. We would recommend this for anyone looking for a low price place to stay, however when we go back we will choose another part of town to stay in.

this hotel needs new shower heads!

from A TripAdvisor Member
shower pressure too low. when they changed the shower head, the pressure was too strong! I am NOT a picky person, but I'd like to take a shower in august!!

A mixed bag

from GrillGirl007
We stayed at the Hotel St. Denis in April 2004 with 2 other couples. We are all in our late twenties or early thirties.

There are some good things about this little hotel. The rates are a great deal. We found the staff to be helpful and friendly. They pour a great Stella downstairs at the bistro, even washing the outside of the glass before giving it to you. The rooms were fine, nothing exceptional, but certainly comfortable and clean. The location is good in that you can walk to lots of great parts of the city.

It seems like this hotel is alot nicer than its immediate surroundings. We did actually see prostitutes near the hotel, certainly not going into the hotel. We found the room to be a little stuffy so we tried to regulate the heat by opening the window. Unfortunatly, our window opened up to a side street/alley where we could hear bottles smashing and people yelling until dawn almost. It certainly wasn't a good night's sleep. You may want to ask for a room in the front of the hotel.

We were there in April and noticed that there didn't seem to be any airconditioning. They may put in window units for the summer, but I would call to find out for sure if you plan to visit in the summer.

All in all, I am not sure I would stay here again, although I don't regret staying here. I didn't feel unsafe, but I am an urban dweller and probably have a little more tolerance for the type of neighborhood the Hotel St. Denis is in. Finally, it looks like the area the hotel is in is sort of up-and-coming-area. Perhaps in a few years the area surrounding the hotel will be a bit nicer. Of course, if that is that case, the hotel could easily charge alot more money.

You get what you pay for!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
When it comes to cheap hotels, Hotel St. Denis is above average. The staff are REALLY nice and helpful. The breakfeast was at a very cute bistro downstairs. But the rooms are rather dark and dingy... and don't go south of the hotel.... very shady area!!!! Overall, it was ok, although I'm not sure I would stay again. But if you're on a budget, its decent!!!

Top Local Tips for Montreal

Getting to the Hotel, and traveling around I wanted to take the bus to the hotel however with the bags I had it was too much. The cab fair is worth 35 CD which is less in American. I would suggest if you want to vist more then two muesums you should go to the first muesum and get the 3 day tourist package. You get to go to all the museums and get a train pass for 45 CD. You do not need a car in this place. To food is great by the hotel and the people are all nice. The great thing about the location is that you are close to the train so when it is cold or anything it is a quick block up to the train and underground city.

RES = Underground City Signs reading "RES" indicate entrance to Montreal's vast underground city complexes.

Change your American $$$ on St. Catherine's downtown. The American $$ has fallen dramatically - like 10% - in 2007. There are a bunch of great money changing places downtown(Peel/University area) on St. Catherine's.
