“Great value near sights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This small hotel does almost everything right: friendly staff who went out of their way to find me an umbrella on a rainy morning, a great breakfast serving up real Fairmount bagels (the ex-Montrealer in me certainly appreciated them but the quality may have been lost on some other visitors to the city who did not clue in that these are the best of the best), comfy beds and sheets, nice walk in showers, desktop computers in the room, WIFI, iPod dock (couldn't quite get it to work though), and much more. The only thing lacking for me was a full length mirror. Certainly I got great value for money. Thank you, Dauphin!

Location wise, it is very near the Jeanne Mance stop for the airport bus #747, so getting in from the airport was cheap and easy at $8. (I bought the $16 3 day pass so got 3 days of transit including my return trip to the airport). It is steps away from the Palais de Congres and just a few more from old Montreal. Place des Arts was also just a couple blocks away.

Lovely, quiet, spacious room in a small hotel at a great price. Pleasant, helpful bi-linqual staff. Modern decor, generous continental breakfast from 6:00 to 10:00 which very well suited our lazy schedule. Conveniently located a block from the convention center and Place d'Armes Metro. Easy walking distance to Downtown and Old town. Even at 65, we didn't need a car or even a cab during our four day stay.

We stayed at the Dauphin as an alternative to more expensive hotels suggested by a medical conference. The location was great, two blocks from the Convention Center, and a short walk to Old Montreal. The bed was very comfortable, and the breakfast was really nice - bagels, croissants, cereal, yogurt, cheese, hard boiled eggs, coffee and juice. We spent the savings on great restaurants in the area - all within walking distance. One suggestion - the hotel should install towel racks in the bathroom - people will be more likely to reuse towels if they have a place to dry them out!

Stayed at the Dauphin for 3 nights. The hotel was really clean. I did not like the feather pillows that are provided as the ends poke you in the face while you are tossing around and the towels in the bathroom were a little bit on the cheap side.

Room Tip: Try your air conditionner before going to sleep as it can be noisy.

Easy waking distance to Old Town, chinatown and main shopping areas. Staff were very helpful in showing how to find things on the map they provide. Breakfast included was also a nice benefit as Montreal can be quite expensive.
Room included a computer and free wifi.

Stayed here from Sept. 7 to Sept. 13 for a business trip. The room I stayed in was up to date with walk in shower, computer (Very SLOW), and flatscreen television. The free breakfast was very basic with muffins, begals, and fuit. The staff was very friendly and was helpful when my keycards stopped working. Note: It was a bonus to know they have computers in the room however, they were very slow and needed updates.

You do not need a car if you stay here, everything is within walking distance except of course the Olympic Park and Botanical Gardens. You can unload the car in front of the hotel (at a small cost for parking) before parking your car up. 20 Dollars per 24hrs at their recommended lot, around the corner (100m) or cheaper at others if you are prepared to walk further and keep it outside. Underground/Metro is close by, though we didn't use because as mentioned before all we wanted to see was within easy walking distance. We only spent the one night, but it had all we needed, including a nice bathroom with shower (no bath). PC in room with free wi-fi throughout the hotel. Rooms were comfortable with wooden floors and medium to hard beds. Staff were willing and enthusiastic and always helpful. Breakfast was the weak point, very basic offerings (toast, jam, cereal) and more likened to a school dinner room than a hotel breakfast room. Still, being central there was plenty of other places to take an early morning coffee and bite to eat.

For location alone we would stay here again, but not sure if would so if it was for an extended period as the hotel is more functional than warm and welcoming.

Room Tip: Try to take a room that does not overlook the street it is situated on.
