“FANTASTIQUE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Please contact me if you find better! This suite style hotel is perfectly situated downtown. This hotel includes a beautiful roof top indoor pool, the best "continental" breakfast I've ever had, large immaculate rooms with ceilings that give a very grand feeling to each room, and kind/respectful/helpful staff and valet parking. I truly doubt you will find another hotel that can beat this one!

This is my new "go-to" hotel when I need to be in Montreal.

Very, very good hotel! Where will I start?
Location: very central, right in downtown and the hub of activity. Very close to McGill university. A few blocks from Metro and bus stops.
Appearance: the lobby is so nice I did not think that this is a suite-hotel. The concierge and the front desk people are very helpful.
Rooms: very spacious. The alcove suite we got is bigger than a 2-double bed room we get in other hotels. It has a spacious kitchen with enough equipment to make simple meals.
It is a few dollars more expensive than a regular king-bedroom but it will make up for the meals that you can cook and eat in inside the suite.
Breakfast is ok. But can be improved. Maybe add a hot meal to it?
The only problem I had was the laundry room. Can it be outside the gym or even have a door outside the gym? It is very inconvenient to go around the gym and open again another door to have access to the laundry.
Overall, I would stay here again when I visit Montreal.

We booked this hotel for a one-night stay in Montreal, while traveling by train from Quebec to New York. It was an easy walk from the train station, and we found the Phillips Square area to be delightful: lots of pedestrians, shopping, restaurants, and a lively vibe, and pretty much in the center of things (though we did not have much time to explore this big city!).

The hotel could not have been nicer--large, clean room; friendly and helpful staff; everything sort of up-to-date (example: table lamps with extra outlets for charging phones and tablets). Indoor pool on the rooftop and self-serve laundry. We only wished we had more time to stay longer!

Top aspect for me for this hotel is the situation. It's very convenient for the central rail station and for the shopping on Catherine Street being just a minute or two from each. Yet it's on a quiet road and was peaceful at night. For me though the place just lacked the x-factor. Rooms were spacious but dour, the pool was nothing special (indeed I saw two families turn away disappointed when they went up there). The place had no bar or even café so didn't become a haunt at all while we were there.
Decent value for money though and it was certainly clean. All in all then it was 'ok'

Hotel Phillips Square is located walking distance from the Central Train Station and large portions if the "undegeound city". 3 couples took a train into Montreal and easier walked to the hotel. We conquered the city with convienence to subway stations, nightlife and great restaurants. The service was great and the rooms were spacious and come with full kitchen. Rooftop pool and terrese made it even better. Will definitely stay there again.

My friend and I stayed here for a week in late September (2013) in a two bedroom suite (we were in Room 720). A large master bedroom, with a decent-sized second bedroom. An enormous living/dining area, twelve foot high ceilings with huge windows, and a full kitchen, including full-size fridge/freezer, oven and four-burner cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, and plates/cups/glasses/utensils. The room was clean, with ample closet space. The beds were comfortable. There were plenty of towels. There's a rooftop pool/gym, with an area where you can enjoy the sunset with a bottle of wine; there's also a laundry room there. The expanded continental breakfast consisted of multiple types of breads and muffins, cold cereals in several varieties, instant oatmeal, coffee and tea, and six kinds of fresh fruit. There's free internet and a printer near the lobby, but the wifi in the room worked pretty well. The concierges can't seem to do enough for you.

The hotel is well-placed, as it's about 4 blocks to the nearest grocery store and several blocks to either of two metro stations. It's about 3 blocks from the nearest pharmacy and across the street from a bank. If you're into typical shopping, there's a lot of that within easy walking distance. We were both woken up by early-morning trash collection a couple of times, but overall street noise was minimal and we almost never heard any of our neighbors. This hotel is deservedly popular with families and business travelers; many representatives from an international aviation conference were here during our stay. The staff are polite and professional. One caveat: stay out of the adjoining restaurant on the ground floor, Trattoria Zia. It isn't part of the hotel; it just happens to be next door, and it's overpriced and utterly mediocre.

My friend and I were so impressed with Le Square Phillips that we returned here after a week elsewhere in Canada for our last night in the country, even though we had originally planned to stay elsewhere for that night. If I have to suggest an improvement, it would be nice for the bathroom to have a fan. Otherwise, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and I would stay here again without hesitation.

Overall this was a great hotel and we would stay here again. Great location. Clean, spacious and quiet rooms with great city views. Staff was professional and accommodating. On arriving one of the managers wheeled out a wagon full of toys and had my two kids each pick one. A nice start to a nice trip.

Roof top deck had great views of downtown. Pool was on the small side, but the kids didn't mind. Free breakfast was a carb fest (bread, bagels, waffles, muffins, cereal, croissants) with some juices, coffee and fruit. Breakfast room was nice but crowded. But it's included, so no complaints.

Only problem was they had the wrong rate on the bill. It was fixed in less than two minutes with apologies.
