Downtown Montreal Hotels

Please let me know about some of the best hotels in Downtown Montreal. So far I am looking at The Queen Elizabeth Hotel, the Westin Mont Royal and the Wyndham Montreal. Please tell me which one of these is the best choice.
If you happen to be familar with any other good hotels in Downtown Montreal please make sure you let me know.

Andrew: I'm making my first trip to Montreal in a few weeks, and my travel agent highly recommended the Ritz. All the travel guides I've looked at have also given it a high reveiw. Check questions #31 and #46 here, also. They review several of the better hotels. Hope this helps. Janet

It all depends on what you mean by "Best". We love the Ritz (especially for Sunday brunch). But, lately we always stay at Hotel de la Montagne. We love the location, the service, the rooms, the restaurant, the nightclub, the cocktail lounge with the live music, and the roof (in the nice weather). Especially enjoy the friendly service and the reasonable prices. Would rather spend the difference on shopping and fine dining. We also love the location.

I've never even heard of the Wyndham. The Queen Elizabeth is huge, in the very center of town, and a first rate hotel with one of the city's best restaurants, the Beaver Club, located in it. If you have a Monteal map, it's over top of Central Station, and it's connected to the "Underground city" referred to in another message. The Westin is a former Four seasons, in a slighlty fancier part of town about six blocks away, is modern, efficient, and a fine place to stay. Not onyour list but worth considering are the marriott, next door, more or less, to the Queen Elizabeth, and the Intercontinental, several blacks to the east of the Queen Elizabeth. The Bonaventure Hilton, immediately south of the QE, is another top-quality Montreal U.S. style hotel, as is the Crowne Plaza on Sherbrooke Street. And the Delta is fine, with large rooms, good service, and a location in themiddle of lots of interesting things to see and do. Delta's generally are a little bit better than their price might suggest.

The Ritz Carlton, mentioned by someone else, is a Montreal institution, and has a feel to it significantly different from the other hotels.
If I had to pick a hotel for a movie star to stay in, it would be the Ritz, or the Loew's Vogue, which is smaller, more avant garde, and would be more memorable.

All these are downtown. All are fine. All have good dining rooms within, and lots of great restaurants nearby

I agree with the last para of the last posting - these are all fine hotels and I do not think it is worth a lot time trying to distinguish between them. If you have no locational preferences, go on price/features/specials.

Brian might know the Wyndham as the former Le Meridien in the Complexe Desjardins, across from Place des Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Another fine hotel under its former management and I presume still so.

The one I would choose is the Radisson Hotel des Gouverneurs across University from the Bonaventure, but only because I stayed there in June and found it excellent in every aspect - but I imagine that would be true of most of the ones described.

We stayed at Le Sheraton Centre on Rene Levesque and we loved it. Excellent staff, good food and drink; especially the 36th floor executive suite for cocktails; and top notch location. We will stay there again next summer.

If you want something very cozy, in Old Montreal, and significantly cheaper than the Ritz and Westin, try a B&B called: Auberge des Sans Soucy. Located on St-Paul Street in Old Montreal.

I am planning a trip to Montreal and know nothing about the city. I generally like to stay in B&B's but with most of the modern conveniences such as a bathroom in the room. Does anyone have any suggestions? I got the one on the Auberge des Sans Souey but want to have a few options.

Planning a trip to Montreal and am interested in access between the hotels and the casino. Is it best to stay in Old Montreal or another section? Any hotel recommendations that are close by taxi or walking? From what I can tell, the Hotel Intercontinental would be close but I'm not sure. Any help would be much appreciated.
