“Black & Blue”
Reviewed October 28, 2008

Used this hotel when visiting Montreal for the Black & Blue weekend. Hotel is clean and well located for all the activities of the weekend, plus only a short walk into the old city. Rooms are basic and large and well serviced. Staff courteous & friendly. We used the restaurant for breakfast which had a good selection and reasonably priced. Hotel is not considered a luxury hotel, however well located and clean and meets all the needs for weekend plus well priced.

We stayed here during the annual strike season of hotel staff and the hotel seemed pretty unaffected by it all except for the somewhat casual dress of the employees (trainers and t shirts).
Our room was large and comrfortable, with excellent freebies - I liked the mouthwash!. Slghtly old fashioned but it was fine.
Breakfast, served by suprerfriendly staff was an excellent hot buffet.
The hotel is pretty convenient for the old town IF you know where you are going. Turn left and then next right if you want to catch the metro - or walk into town to the Vieux Port. It's about a 10-15min walk. If you turn left and left into Catherine Street, you hit the Village - the gay centre - which is fun but can be rather seedy.

  • Liked — Friendly staff and comfortable beds and excellent pancakes!
  • Disliked — Bit of a trek to the centre

I stayed four nights here at a special rate (first two nights regular rate, third night 50% off, fourth night free). This even included a wonderful breakfast buffet on the first three mornings.

Pluses:
- Staff: wonderful, friendly, efficient
- Food: hearty breakfast, loved the pastries and fruits
- Location: conveniently located at the Berri-UQAM metro station
- Airport bus: stops one block from the hotel, runs every 30 mins

Minuses:
- The rooms are clean but the hotel is starting to show it's age
- Rue Ste Catherine Est is a bit seedy during the day but the gay village livens things up on weekend nights.

Tips:
- 1 or 3-day metro pass. It takes you to all the major attractions and shopping areas.

- Internet access. The hotel has wifi or you can purchase 24 hour access to their business center. There are internet cafes along Rue Ste Catherine. Also, there's an Apple store in the shopping district on rue Ste Catherine Ouest.

- Dining. Lots of choices in the area. I ate at Echalote, which offers Thai and Szechuan dishes. There's an indoor food court between the hotel and metro station. At Place d'Armes you'll be near Chinatown and also fine restaurants around Notre Dame. I has a great meal at Bonaparte on rue St Francois Xavier. Their lunch menu ranges from $15-25.

-Shopping. From Notre Dame it's a pleasant walk down rue St Urbain, past Chinatown, then left on rue Ste Catherine Ouest. You'll come across La Baie (The Bay) and Simons which has its own line of clothing at good prices.

-Museums. I learned a lot about the history of Canada and Montreal at the McCord Museum and Pointe-a-Calliere which is built on top of an excavation site.

-Discount tickets to Parc Olympique, Biodome and Botanical Gardens are available at the hotel front desk.

-Day trip to Quebec City. You can book it at the hotel. It's well worth it. The Frontenac is awesome.

-Many public signs including the metro are in French only. So it may pay to know open/closed (ouvert/ferme), east/west (est/ouest) and exit (sortie).

I found people in Montreal to be warm, friendly, and very proud of their French roots. You will often be greeted with "bonjour" or "bonsoir." Montreal is a lovely city rich in culture and history.

I wanted to stay at the Queen Elizabeth, which had impressed me on my last trip to Montreal, but since the staff was still on strike, I had to look elsewhere. The conference proposed a choice between the Hyatt and the Gouverneur, and the Hyatt's pool being closed for renovation, we opted for the Gouverneur.
Some reviewers complain that the hotel is in a somewhat shabby part of town. I must say that the area is totally safe, and found the latin Quarter with its student atmosphere and bars and restaurants a welcome change from the more sterile business district.
The hotel itself provides good value for the money: the rooms are large and well appointed, the bathroom facilities well maintained, and I liked the view (although I would have preferred a room with an even room number, to have the city view). The pool area is excellent, with a gorgeous view (in the queen elizabeth the pool is downstairs on the parking garage level), and I found the bar cozy. I very much appreciated the no-fuzz internet access. I'll definitely consider the Gouverneur on my next trip to Montreal.

I was just in Montreal the past weekend and stayed at the Gov. Place Dupuis. I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel. The price was excellent, the rooms were well appointed, the staff was helpful and friendly the entire step of the way. If you are looking for a great hotel that centrally located (you even have Metro access from the hotel building itself) then stay here!

My friend and I even got $10 off the Sunday brunch for being guests at the hotel. Great buffet and service. I will definitely stay here again in Montreal.

This is the worst hotel we have EVER stayed at. I don't know who decided to give them three stars but they don't deserve even 1/2 a star. The electricity went out twice in our room, the lady at the front desk pretended like she don't speak English, they can't give you an extra pillow. Our room was directly above the ballroom, and there were loud death music playing till 3AM on a Wednesday night, and the hotel refused to switch us to another room. I guess there is no such thing as service to any English speaking tourists at the Gouverneur Hotel. Do yourself a favor and do not stay at this hotel, I hope they go out of business soon! They're so rude I think I'll avoid going to Montreal period in the future!

  • Liked — Not a thing!
  • Disliked — No service at all, refuse to switch room when ballroom music can be heard/felt till 3AM!
