I stayed in Chez Swann for two nights over a busy weekend (end of Jazz festival). I was slightly worried about my stay having read reviews re odd smells, loudness etc. But I still wanted to give it a try as I liked the interiors. My worries were totally unfounded. I had an excellent stay from A to Z. I... More

My wife and I had a couple of days of R&R in Montreal after a family reunion trip in upstate NY. I found Chez Swann on Hotels.com, where previous reviewers had remarked on the service and the arty vibe. Although we arrived early in the morning, the manager was kind enough to store our bags while we went out for... More

Got a deal when we booked, and for what we paid, it was a bargain! Really nice and new hotel, smaller room, but great location. And the breakfast, wow, really good! And the hotel is located in the same building as a really nice restaurant!

This place is a hidden little gem. The rooms were tastefully decorated and well appointed. Comfy bed and linens and all the niceties are there. The location is also very good if you are doing business or sight seeing downtown. I would highly recommend it.

Absolutely fabulous little gem of a boutique hotel, great location down town Montreal, walking distance to all the best places: Montreal Art Museum, shopping, Crescent st (restaurants & bars). Beautiful, thoughtfully designed modern space, interesting modern art in the lobby; the hotel is adjacent to a very good French restaurant (a simple breakfast of coffee service, bread, croissants, yogurts &...

The colours and the random abstract art pieces add to the cool factor. Even the rooms maintained the 'out-there' theme -- while providing basic comforts. The washroom with the the black and white tiles was very cool. Bed was also very comfortable. Please note that the restaurant downstairs is very lively and there is a constant buzz coming into the...

We recently stayed here for a long weekend - having travelled from Europe. This is a very well located Downtown Hotel - close to the main shopping areas and universities. It's also got Rue Crescent right around the corner for lots of restaurants and bars. As noted by others ... don't let the outside put you off ... once you... More

Excellent hotel. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Good location in the heart of downtown. Good size room, but a lack of hanging/wardrobe space and no fridge in the room. Breakfast is included but is really not worth it. Pop round the corner to Starbucks or indulge yourself a few yards further on at Eggspectation

Great location, cool hotel! We stayed in room 207. It was a corner room with two large windows; one window had an area with a mattress the size of a day bed and had pillows on it.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
