“Art in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This small boutique hotel in the heart of Montreal's Old City is perfect. The rooms, hallways and lobby are filled with contemporary art - signed originals, prints and sculpture from world class artists. The hotel rooms are spacious with high ceilings and antique furniture. Excellent breakfast buffet and a staff the caters to your every need. Great restaurants nearby. Valet parking. This quiet hotel was just right for our winter get away.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the named rooms or suites. They are named for particular artists, whose work is hung...

We could not have chosen a nicer hotel for our Christmas visit to Montreal. Terrific location, amazingly helpful staff, and wonderful art throughout the building. (there was an original Andy Warhol sketch in our room)

My husband and I stayed here in October and loved it! The rooms are big, the service is great, the hotel bar is amazing and the breakfast was the best buffet breakfast I have had. I look forward to going back.

I just got back from a 4 night stay at LHotel in Montreal. The hotel is right at the Old Port area so a lot of restaurants and the water are all within walking distance (and it's on the orange Metro line which is quick to get to the great shopping area of St. Laurent and St. Denis, and the amazing Atwater market!).

The hotel was super clean, had really nice and knowledgeable staff who spoke perfect English and French (I am from the states and don't speak french). The hotel also had this super fun design - bright colors and cool paintings everywhere. The street was quiet and we even got a free upgrade to the Executive Suite! I will definitely go back to this hotel when I visit Montreal next.

(They have a $15 breakfast that is just continental so we went out to have breakfast but they have a bar in the evenings open until 2am or so.)

A colleague and I stayed at the amazing L Hotel in May/June 2012. We were there for a few days on a business trip. From the moment we checked in through our departure, Manager Nicholas and his team at L Hotel provided us with first class, professional service and attention!! Where else can you be treated to freshly-based, mouth-watering, toe-curling pain au chocolate, a huge sumptuous hotel room with loft-like ceilings and a multi-million dollar art collection that rivals the collections of most museums!! We learned L Hotel's owner is the co-founder of the saucy, sexy clothing line Guess and Guess Marciano. The hotel decor reflects a style that combines modern with sumptuous Paris bistro, with little touches of Elton John glam! It's beautiful, warm, spacious, fun, and comfortably elegant. A visual treat with spaces that showcase an eclectic collection of coveted classical and modern paintings, sculptures, and installations from Chagall, Warhol, Miro, and Robert Indiana. We found the hotel within easy walking distance of great restaurants and Old Montreal. Loved it!! Will stay there again without a doubt!! Thanks Nicholas for making us feel special!!

II stayed here on business for four nights in November, the ruins are large and well appointed, the art in the girl is probably worth as much as the hotel. Staff are friendly and the bar its open till 3 am :-)

Very close to the old town and the Cathedral.

Breakfast seems fairly basic and there is no room service to speak of, mainly a cheese lure fruit platter, but to be great there are great restaurants all around. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in September. The stay was nice and the hotel is well looked after and close to most attractions. However, it would be lovely to only be charged for our stay once and not three times. We prepaid our room and were asked for a credit card for accidentals. On our return to Australia, we received our bill and there was a charge from the hotel for $600 odd dollars. I contacted the hotel to be advised that they are unsure what happened but it appears there was another guest with the same name as me and they must have put our details against their file. Please note my name is not a common name and seems a little far fetched that there would be someone with the same full name as me at the same time. The hotel was good about apologising for the inconvenience and refunded the money immediately,. You would think that would be the end of it.. well no my credit card bill came in the mail today and once again I have another charge for my stay.
