“A Good Bet for a Family's Montreal Stay”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The front desk was slow, but once we got to our room, everything was extremely enjoyable. Rooms were clean, roomy and modern. We (two parents, two kids) had transferred over from the Queen Elizabeth Hotel and found the Intercontinental's rooms bigger, cleaner and fresher. The QE's health club and pool are nicer than the Intercontinentals though but I'd rather have a better rooms at the Intercontinental. The Intercontinental pool is just fine, but the sauna smelled a tad musty and there was no steam bath. Our family loved the location adjacent to Old Montreal. Metro is close and kids ride for free on the weekends.

This hotel is perfectly located adjacent to Old Montreal so that all of those sites are within walking distance.

The property is old, but not worn down or dirty. In some ways the age is very comfortable, like in the large marble bathrooms with the quaint soaking tub and small shower stall. Our room refrigerator wasn't very cold, but it was cold enough. The in-room liquor options were gone, maybe something the hotel no longer does, and we were fine with that as well. Beds were clean and comfortable. Everything in the room was in good repair. Our room was quiet and comfortable.

The hotel has an exercise room and a lap pool. The locker rooms were clean and everything was open and working during our visit which was great for my son. All hotel staff are fluidly bilingual. My only complaint would be the food cost at this hotel. A pot of coffee should never cost $14, and room service dinner for two was always over $70. (Tim Hortons is within walking distance.)

Room Tip: Some rooms have a nice view of the St. Lawrence River.

Stayed at the hotel for a week during a conference. The location is excellent being directly across the street from the convention center. The hotel restaurant was excellent. The hotel bar was also nice with absinthe being the item they used to set themselves apart from other local hotel bars. I had breakfast every morning in the café downstairs which offered a nice variety. I will say that the lobby is somewhat dated and appears quite beat up for an intercontinental Hotel. I was actually surprised they haven't torn out the carpet and refreshed the check-in desk as this is one of the first and most visible parts of the hotel that just see when they arrive. However that is only a minor quibble. Wi-Fi is free in the lobby. In the hotel rooms you have to pay $18 a day for wi-Fi unless you are a member of their loyalty program, which is free to join. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Housekeeping service was prompt and efficient. The concierge was friendly and helpful in getting dinner reservations. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The location directly across the street from the convention center and two blocks or three blocks away from Old Port/ Old Montreal was nice so that we could essentially walk everywhere we wanted to go. All that being said, I might try a different hotel the next time I visit Montreal though.

Great Location, very good stuff, convenient parking, comfy spacious room and great breakfast. Close to everything in Montreal. It was nice to get a swim in the indoor pool when it was 21F outside.
I would definitely return there.

The best part of our stay at the intercontinental was the exceptional concierge. The concierge was always willing to assist us with restaurant recommendations, directions, mailing certain items, and various inquiries such as Mass times at Notre Dame. The rooms, lobby, and decor were very nice. The hotel is connected to a type of mezzanine area that is beautifully appointed in seemingly original mosaic tiles and artwork. A 5 minute walk from the old city but still far enough into the business district to be relatively quiet on the weekends, the Intercontinental was very pleasant and relaxed. The room with two doubles was of typical size with a nice flat screen; also had a nice view of the city. The other perk to staying at the intercontinental is that the building is very distinct and easy to spot from the street. The only negative to this hotel is the lack of free wifi, otherwise, it was a truly great stay and we will be back!

We did have a wonderful 3-day stay prior to a cruise, but nearly 2 weeks later I realized I arrived home without my Kindle e-reader. When I called the hotel they were quick to ask the dates and room number for my stay, then said yes they had it and also the charger! It's on its way to me, which prompted me to write a review.

Besides the honest folks working there, the hotel has a great restaurant/bar where you can unwind and relax after a day out and about. Location is also perfect for exploring the old town area. We traveled as part of a large tour group, yet we were treated as individuals by all of the staff. Definitely would stay here again.

The hotel was nice, lobby was beautiful. Pool was small but we were the only ones there so it was okay. However, the check out process took at least half an hour. I guess they were having technical issues or something, but it was really irritating. We had prepaid for the room so when the guy gave us our receipt we asked him a couple times to ensure we do not get charged for the room again. Sure enough, two weeks later we saw the room charge on our credit card. Had to call them and they were pretty apologetic, but we would not stay there again. Poor service.
