My partner and I recently visited Montreal for a combination of business and pleasure. Le Petit Hotel was a great choice and we found it to be very comfortable and in an excellent location. The best part of the stay was definitely the young, friendly, helpful and unpretentious staff. They were great. If you want a formal concierge in a silly uniform, don't stay here. If however, you enjoy honest opinions and ernest, helpful answers, Le Petit Hotel is a very good choice.
We stayed in a large room at the front of the hotel with lovely french doors that opened up toward the street. The weather was nice so we could open the windows and do a little people watching from our room. It was a lively weekend on the street since it was a holiday weekend (Canadian Thanksgiving), with many nicely dressed young couples and families strolling through the street. We were glad that we had spent a little bit more for the larger room.
If there were any downsides, we were a little surprised at how small the lobby was when we arrived, and there was some street noise during the night - to be expected since it is located in the hub of activity. Neither of these were of much consequence for us, and the positives of our experience outweighed any inconvenience.
Breakfast was included and my partner was crazy about the bread, a multigrain that looked homemade and delicious. I made my daily habit a croissant or two, and some yoghurt with fruit. The staff offered up your choice of a special espresso drink or fresh juice. Plenty of additional coffee in pots for those who require more than one cup of coffee.
Prior to our arrival, the hotel made several restaurant recommendations, including L'Original, a stylish restaurant on a quiet street near the hotel that served a delicious menu that included some unique entrees of venison or pheasant. While we splurged on several nice meals, this was the best one of our trip. Better than L'Espicier, also in the historic district.
We truly enjoyed our stay at this nice boutique hotel in historic Montreal.
