The entire block of the hotel and related space is rather imposing and uninviting but once you are inside the hotel it is quite warm and attractive. For the age of the property it is in great shape, clean updated rooms, nice pool and bar area. The concierge staff was incredible, especially for English speakers. They definitely went above and...

Nice and clean, lovely view of city. Pool was great, clean and no issues of crumbling anything as was mentioned in other reviews. Staff was great,... More

This is a very lovely hotel located in the downtown area of Montreal. It is an elevator ride up to the lobby area. Staff were very nice at checkin. The hotel is spread out over a long area. There are some steps required to get to rooms. Our room was was very comfortable and clean. The outside pool was clean... More

This hotel was everything you would expect of a fine hotel as far as quality of room and staff but something really fun was the Rooftop Pool and Garden. As you walk around the hotel they have glass hallways so you see the lovely garden areas and when you want to go for a swim it is a lovely pool.... More

The Bonaventure is probably the ugliest building in Montreal, but as soon as you step inside the lobby of the hotel you know you should not judge a book by it's cover. It's an oasis in the middle of a busy city. Lovely green trees and flowers surround a great rooftop pool. It's location with it's own underground/metro stop and... More

We chose the Bonaventure because it was close to the train station and we were taking the train the next day. It was right across the street and accommodated us with late checkout. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable.

Stayed one night in Montreal with family and lived it up at the Bonaventure primarily for its rooftop pool. My kids LOVED it - swam for hours. The decor and cleanliness were outstanding. The friendliness of the staff was outstanding. Rooms are decent sized. The standard drinks poolside could use some work on taste (margarita and piña colada) lacked. But... More

Quick weekend trip to Montreal with my son. The Hotel Bonaventure is well located in central Montreal, within easy walking distance of the old city, Rue Ste-Catherine and McGill University. Check in was quick, the room very nice (and very clean), and the pool/garden area was excellent--great place to relax in between our adventures in Montreal. Parking was great--we valet... More

Stayed here with my mother for 4 nights last July (2014). C'est incroyable! The convenience of the food courts in the underground city saved us money on food, so we were able to spend it on great experiences and even better food! Haha If you are into luxury, try the Bota Bota spa - it's a 4 level spa that... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
