“Good location and great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2007

I stayed at L'Appartement from Oct. 17th to Oct. 23rd in one of their studio suites. For $133 per night plus tax, I was able to get a clean, comfortable suite in a good location in downtown Montreal.

In addition to the usual things one would expect from a hotel suite, the studio suite included a kitchen and free in-room Internet access for those with a laptop computer. Network cords are available from the front desk if needed.

Other facilities available in the hotel include an infrequently used pool on the top floor with views of the city, several exercise machines and a sauna. On the main floor, guests can also avail themselves of both a buffet-style continental breakfast (M-F 6:30-9:30, weekends 7:00-10:00) and a one-computer business centre at no extra charge. Service was consistently polite.

The McGill Metro station, McGill University, Parc du Mont-Royal, Place Ville-Marie, the stores on Rue Ste.-Catherine and the McCord Museum are all within a brief walk. A Provigo supermarket is just down the street and around the corner on Avenue du Parc if you need groceries. The L'Aerobus shuttle stops here, and other tourist shuttles either stop here or at one of the three neighbouring hotels.

The only negatives were that the walls were a bit thin, and my swimsuit still smelled strongly of chlorine even after rinsing. But those are just minor things. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

Family of 3 recently spent 3 nights at this wonderful appartment hotel in downtown Montreal.
We walked in after we didn't like the rooms at the nearby Best Western on Sherbrooke.
We stopped on Sherbrooke at this location where there are 5 hotels - the Marriot Courtyard,The Holiday Inn,The Delta,the Sheraton 4 points and L'Appartment.
We started here and never got to see the rest! We got a one bedroom suite for the price of a studio - the rooms are large and airy'with a modern shower/bath and a great kitchen with all mod cons.
We paid 139 CAD + Tax + $18 per day for garage parking for our rental car.
Definitely a great find in pricy Montreal!

Had a very pleasant stay at this hotel for four nights.

No, it's not a luxury hotel at all, but of course the price indicates that. What you get here is a clean suite, a balcony, the option of parking, continental breakfast, free internet and convenience when it comes to the metro and downtown attractions.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Internet service was reliable. The room was clean. LOVED having a well stocked kitchen if only for the convenience to pick up a few snacks at the supermarket (which is just down the street).

The location was perfect. 5 minute walk to two metros. Easy walk to the shops on Ste Catherine. Nice walk to restaurants on St Laurent. Comfortable walk (minus the hills!) to Mont Royal. Even walked back to the hotel from the Old Montreal one evening.

The one downside was the continental breakfast. Montreal is known for great bagels and croissants, why serve regular old supermarket bagels when you have access to Fairmount and St. Viateur? Croissants were equally unappealing. Juice is obviously from concentrate or juice crystals. The breakfast works if you like a mediocre carb fest in the morning.

Would stay there again in a flash. Check the montreal tourism board website for any special promotions. That's what we did and got an even better deal!

Booked 2 two bedroom Suites for my bachelor party, and it worked out real nice. We stayed in Rooms 1109 and 1209, and while the beds were a little small -- 11 people fit in the 2 rooms just fine.

There were plenty of towels, and the fridge was a regular size, perferct for storing beer.

Location was top notch -- everything was with 10 blocks and definately walkable.

The staff was very friendly (and only charged us at the room rate of 2 people per room).

Lastly, breakfast was included (and is open to any one/group who has a room key to get into the breakfast room.) While it wasn't spectacular (mainly toast, cereal, muffins, starch, etc.) it was the right price.

We were very pleased with this hotel and have nothing to criticise.

The entrance is rather formal and the desk staff are very professional, (though friendly and helpful) so you would think you were in a business hotel as you go in.

Our room was spotless, well appointed and perfectly large enough for us two. The kitchenette has everything you need.
We had a balcony that looks out onto Sherbrooke Street west. It was nice to have but small, and, I found, a bit vertiginous. If you want to sit outside its better to go up to the penthouse where next to the pool there’s a rooftop deck with views over the City and nearby Mont Royale.

A good continental breakfast is provided. It’s plentiful, though not very varied

The hotel is certainly in a popular spot. There is a Sheraton next door, a Holiday Inn and a Marriott across the road; and a Hilton is going up next to that. It’s an easy walk to the subway, McGill University, the underground City and the information place on Dorchester square – and only a moderate walk to the waterfront and the Old city. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and a supermarket. We parked in the basement for 18 dollars a day (plus taxes, of course).

Free internet access and computer are provided in the breakfast room which was very convenient for us, on vacation.

I stayed with friends at the L'appartement Hotel in July, and was extremely happy with the hotel's amenities and location. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite, complete with kitchenette, queen bed in the bedroom, and double sofa bed in the living room. The suite was huge and very clean with nice views of Montreal. The Metro was a 5 minute walk, and we were in walking distance of the shopping and restaurant districts.

Very pleased with the property, the location, and the service. Would be a great bargain for a family at $120 a night, but note that that price doesn't include taxes, and in the end we payed almost $200 a night. Still a good deal for what you get.

I so very much wanted to love this hotel. Last year we had a wonderful experience at the (jointly owned) Square Phillipe, and I had these grand ambitions of single-handedly raising the TA ranking of this poor overlooked hotel. However, after our 3 day stay, I agree that this hotel is really just a 3 star hotel.

Our 2 bedroom suite was easily 600 square feet and had a beautiful view. However only one of the bedrooms had air conditioning (and a small window unit at that) There was also only one television, and that was in the living room. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed (A grocery store is a short 2 block walk) and the dining area was large enough for a pack-n-play for my toddler. We slept 5 people no problem. (I thought the pull-out sofa was uncomfortable but my 9 year old didn't mind it)


The biggest con of this hotel is the elevators. There are only 2 very small elevators to service 17 floors. Our wait at peak times was often 10 minutes or more.

I found the breakfast to be very adequate (bagels, cereal, coffee, juice, muffins, fruit) for a continental. Additionally the breakfast room had a computer with internet and a printer available 24/7 for guest use. The rooftop had a small inddor pool and laundramat which was also a nice added feature.

I also liked the location very much, a short walk to the metro, the contemporary art museum and some very nice restaurants. However I would choose the Square Phillipe over LeAppartment next time.
