Indeed, Auberge du Vieux Port deserves top billing. The location, staff, décor, comfort and well…overall experience (!) were outstanding.
We booked a King premier room…wow. Big exposed beams, hardwood floors, beautiful furnishings and a sleek, modern bathroom. AND….completely spotless (if you’ve read any of my reviews you know what a clean freak I am!).
The bed was huge with divine white bedding, the towels and bathrobes were fluffy and generous. In the bathroom we had a big walk in shower with multiple settings and spray options, but the best was the huge tub with jets. Although we were in Montreal in April we still managed to hit a big snow storm and being able to hit that huge soaker tub with a the bath salts provided was a great way to end the day and get ready for a night on the town.
The staff were amazing….friendly, bilingual, knowledgeable and all had a great sense of humor too!
Breakfast (provided as a hotel guest) was no ordinary “free breakfast” we were able to eat continental or order off the menu….I highly advice the crepes and Quebec maple syrup.
The location was fantastic, shops and restaurants within a stones throw and the ambiance and quaintness of Vieux Montreal were at our door step.
This gem of a hotel is a must for travelers who enjoy the “good things in life”! 5 stars…two thumbs up.
