“Superb Service-- We'll be Back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2005

I rarely feel the need to write a review of a hotel, but this property is fabulous. Right in the heart of Old Montreal, it has been completely refurbished and is not only modern but comfortable and cozy. The loft room that we had was huge and there was even an area for my 1 year old to play. The bathroom tub could fit 3....and the decor was perfect for a city with dark wood, cushy beds, and exposed brick walls. Very trendy. Our rather inexpensive rate (just about $225 Canadian) included b-fast as well as a wine and cheese reception. The staff was overly helpful...and I have never been treated so well... We will return next year!

My husband and I just returned from a 4-night stay at Hotel Nelligan which we chose based on recommendations from this website. We were looking for something anti-Holiday Inn and this is an excellent choice for an upscale, somewhat homey yet sophisticated hotel.

Hotel Nelligan is located in an artsy, charming, cobblestoned-street neighborhood (old Montreal--old-world european feel) with narrow winding streets. It has character and charm as opposed to downtown.

The Nelligan has a sophisticated yet relaxed feel, with big soft leather couches and a fireplace in the lounge/reception area. It's a great place to enjoy the free 5-7pm wine and cheese (and grapes and baguette) every night, which is a really nice touch. The free breakfast was also great: hard-boiled eggs, muffins, croissants, tri-colored diced fresh fruit salad (cantaloupe, honeydew pineapple, with some watermelon thrown in), cereal, toast, yogurt, OJ and coffee. The guests of the Nelligan in general appeared upscale, definitely not the Holiday Inn crowd.

We had a room with a king-sized bed that was comfortable, a jacuzzi tub, and the walls were exposed brick, which made for a comforting feel. The room was spacious, aesthetically pleasing and while not really luxurious, was far superior to the standard chain-type hotel.

The front desk made some excellent restaurant recommendations for old montreal--try them! The first was L'Epicier-- a few blocks walking distance from Nelligan. It's innovative, bold and adventurous french food by a celebrity chef. Totally worth your $ and time if you appreciate fine food and an artsy and visually appealing presentation. 2 or 3 blocks the other direction down St. Paul street is Les Pyrenees, also fabulous french/spanish food in a warm, casually sophisticated setting you should not miss. Also there is Le Petit Moulinsart which we tried. The restaurant served mainly mussels and was a little less sophisticated than the others. The main courses were good, just not the salad and french onion soup--I would go to L'Epicier or Les Pyrenees for dinner instead if I were you. For dim sum, go to Ruby Rouge in Chinatown.

If you want quality shopping, take a cab to Ogilvy's or Holt Renfrew department stores for about $6 plus a tip (or walk 20 minutes there). (Check their websites out for more info on what type of shopping they offer)
The underground malls are close by but seem to offer more gaudy and junky looking clothes, although there are some decent boutiques scattered here and there. Brown's right there on St. Catherine has great shoes, especially boots. In general, Montreal is definitely the place to go for warm, stylish winter clothing, jackets and boots--much better selection, quality and variety of styles than what I've ever seen around the States.

I would stay at the Nelligan again in a heartbeat. The staff is knowledgeable, helpful and you can't beat the location.

Just stayed in this lovely hotel and it rates among my favorites. All the personnel couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. It is in a very good location, the Vieux Port, and is any easy walk to most shops and restaurants of interest. I highly recommend it to anyone. I would be happy to answer any questions regarding my stay.

My husband and I spent only one night at this wonderfull hotel and our only regret is we did not plan another night here. We have both traveled quite a bit in US and Europe and have never stayed at a hotel quite as nice as Hotel Nelligan. From the lounge to the bar to the rooms this hotel is gorgeous. Staff were wonderfull-very pleasant,helpfull and professional. We had dinner at Gibby's on the recommendation of Roberto-excellent restaurant.
Would most definately recommend this hotel to everyone. Should we happen to be in Montreal again would only stay here.

My husband and I just took our first trip to Montreal and we stayed for two nights at the Hotel Nelligan. Montreal is a wonderful place to visit and the Hotel Nelligan couldn't have been better. The decor was beautiful, the rooms were spacious and inviting, and the staff at the hotel were very accommodating. Everyone of the staff members we encountered during our stay were more than happy to answer any of our questions, help us with directions etc. I would highly recommend the Hotel Nelligan.

This is my favorite hotel. Whenever there is a long weekend with the possibility of getting away, Montreal and the Hotel Nelligan is my first choice. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, the 5pm free glass of wine is a nice relaxer, and the restaurant is very good, and the location is simply the best.

Truly world class. Outstanding staff, fabulous building. Bedroom was a decent size and nicely kitted out. Breakfast was really good and the bar was always busy with a good atmosphere - sitting in the window was good for people watching. Good restaurant but slightly pretenious and service not quite as perfect as the hotel. Great roof terrace bar.

Super location. Vieux Montreal is the place to stay and the Nelligan is right at the heart of things. Navaje (?) has live music while you dine and the food was pretty good. Restaurant du Vieux Port (same group as the Hotel) was good food and good service. La Maree on the main square was so bad we got up and left. Jardin Nelson does a good value lunch - long queues for the garden yet the terrace was great for watching the world go by.
