I pondered several different hotels but so, so glad I chose this one. Where do I start? Well, right from the beginning...the quality and care started with my first call to Hotel Le Crystal and just escalated from there. First off, the location...is fantastic, just below St. Catherine Street and across from the Bell Centre. The suite... we didn't want to come home - the Superior Suite was so spacious with a great view, separate bedroom and a King sized bed, a living room and an extra large bathroom with a rainshower along with a hand held shower. The separate soaker tub was relaxing (yes, I indulged) and the double sinks were very contemporary. We were provided plush robes which we used when we made our way up to the 12th floor outdoor hot tub with a spectacular view of Mount Royal...followed by a dip in the indoor salt water pool and a sauna. We love this hotel! We didn't want to leave our suite but we did want to do a little sightseeing and eventually we also had to eat. Concierge Melyne was so helpful and provided great sightseeing, shopping and restaurant ideas. She offered to make us reservations for dinner at Bevo in Old Montreal (where we received a complimentary dessert courtesy of Melyne) and another front desk staff made reservations for brunch at Vieux-Port Steakhouse (and we received complimentary Mimosas courtesy of our hotel)...and when it was raining, the Bell/Valet Staff offered up umbrellas. We were able to arrange a late check out as we were catching a late train and as we were getting ready to bid adieu, Rudy, the limo driver, offers us a complimentary ride to the train station (it wasn't too far but the gesture was welcomed)...wow, what a fabulous weekend in Montreal. Thank you Hotel Le Crystal and all the staff...Yohann, Mathew, Lucas, Rudy, Anthony (lifeguard), Housekeeping (the rooms were spotless) and of course MeLyne and the others whose names I can't recall. Keep up the great service.
The Grant's will definitely book this hotel again and highly recommend it, especially if you're looking for accommodations that are truly different and special.
