Historical Traveller Reviews of W Montreal Hotel
W is for WOW, WONDERFUL, WICKEDfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Then there's the bar downstairs, super kool design with (5 star) bar staff. Basically they deserve a thank you from their boss, THAT's how good they are. Intentive to the guests and very kind. The place was a blast on a Sunday night. Amazing DJ, playing everything from Chemical Brothers to White Stripes, and the crowd rocked because they were fun and were there to party. Great drinks, great service. I mean we ran out of ciggarettes, so the bar tender gave us his pack and said have as many as you like, but save me one. Just really really nice people.
Let's just put it this way, the worst room in the W is better than the best in others. I've stayed in a Suite in the Ritz Carleton in Montreal which has a dinning area that is huge with high ceiling in the room, nice bathroom and all, it was incredible, but I'd still pick the W over that one. I've stayed at the Queen Elizabeth suite in Montreal that was like three rooms connected, with its own little front hall, annnnd I'd still go to the W next time again.
You can't go wrong with the W.
Loved the Wfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The most fantastic hotel everfrom A TripAdvisor Member
a fantastic roomfrom Luke63
Comments on points to improve: not enough water pressure in the beautiful shower, the cascade feeling fades away / toilet paper so thin it makes you laugh / AC in the room making clicks every 30 seconds, annoying to fall asleep / staff at the entrance of the hotel more bouncer like for night clubs than for hotels (still friendly and smiling)/ inexisting sheets turndown and towel change service/ strong noise when you open the water evacuation of the bathtub/ a bit more light in the beautiful lobby would not arm.
As it is a recently open hotel, those small details, I'm sure, will be corrected.
To summarize : GO TO W MONTREAL AND ENJOY THE STAY.
Hotel W Rocks!from Jackismet
Great Service - Great Valuefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The location is very good, right on the edge of old Montreal with a metro stop out front in Victoria Square.
This is a new hotel that is just establishing itself so value rates will probably decrease as it becomes as it builds clientele.
If you are looking for a quaint Vieux Montreal botique hotel, this is not it. After all, its a W and follows the W modern format. However, if you are looking for a great hotel, that provides a different experience than a standard high end hotel, to support you during your business or vacation trip to Montreal, we highly recommend the W Montreal.
Our entire visit was very positive.
Save your money and stay elsewhere!from k2skicutie
Even with the compensated night, I found the W- Montreal extremely over-priced, obnoxiously pretentious and a huge disappointment. Yes, the room was new and sleek, but the vibe of the entire place is anything but what I experienced the last time I spent New Year's in Montreal (at LeGermain).
There are placards in the rooms championing whatever/wherever. What they don't tell you is that it will cost you dearly. There is no continental breakfast or even a set-up in the room to make coffee (which is standard in other W's).
The killer for me was their self-proclaimed New Years Eve party. For $55 plus tax, it was stated in all of their advertising that there would be food and champagne. The staff at the place hyped this non-event as the epicenter of hip revelry for 2005. They went through the trouble of segregating people by armbands (so that $55 payees would not mingle with Wunderbar payees) and hired lots of beefy bouncers for “crowd control”. Instead, you got a balloon along with miniscule bites of raw shellfish that were distributed once an hour, and one glass of cheap sparkling wine! There were more hotel staff at the “party” than patrons. It was miserable.
In fact, I un-enjoyed my stay at the W so much that I it has shied me away from future stays at any W.
Great choice for the trendiest taste.from Relaxseeker
My room was a standard room, is not big at all but very organized, feathered bed, Tv and DVD not to mention that you can see whe whole shower from the bed, So I watched my girlfriend all the time.
The location was just in the middle, 4 blocks to st. catherine and almost the same distance from Old Montreal and barely 5 minutes walk from the convention center.
If you lack of taste and you are not young or trendy don't stay here.
The WUNDERBAR is one of the hot spots in Montreal.
exceeded my high expectationsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I highly recommend the W Montreal, especially those looking for an exceptional boutique hotel.
Top Local Tips for Montreal
Olive et Gourmando Best Boulangerie this side of France. Went three times a day. Located on St. Paul St. in Old Montreal. If tis doesn't make you feel like you are on the left bnk in Paris--nothing will!
Metro & bus When you buy a ticket to use in the metro or on the bus, they give you a transfer ticket which gets you entrance to the metro or bus later on. This ticket does have a time limit but is a great way to get around for less. If you're staying in Montreal for a week or more and intend to explore a lot using public transport, you can save money by buying a weekly transport pass (approx. $20) available at metro stations, large pharmacies and some newspaper stores.
AWAY Spa - Spa AWAY The Away Spa was awesome. Since I work a high stress job in the States, I really value a good massage and steam bath to relax. I received a massage from a nice woman by the name of Yolanta Busz. She's of Polish decent and makes you feel relaxed. She's very strong, which I think it has alot to do with her being a strong Pole. She passed on her business card to me and now I'm passing this information onto you. Even if you're not to stay in the W Hotel, please ask for Yolanta Busz. She's very kind and enjoys casual conversation. Again, you'll be sore, but afterward, "refreshed", indeed!
