Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Selected this hotel for a long weekend based on the good reviews here and wasn't disappointed. The facade of the hotel doesn't do the inside justice. The lobby, hallway, and rooms are all nice and clean. We were on the 4th floor facing the opposite side of the street. The king bed was soft and provided for a good night sleep. LCD TV with a ton of channels and free WIFI. The folks manning the lobby are all helpful (thank you!).

The location of the hotel provides walking distance to the subway and a list of restaurants (Vietnamese, Spanish, etc). Montreal is a bit like Boston in the sense that a lot can be reached by walking (if a 15 - 30 minute walk doesn't scare you). The subway is a block away and combined with a public transportation pass there is really no need for a car.

A tip to save $40 back to the airport: the 747 bus to the airport departs on block away. We happened to have used a 1 day public transportation pass the day before and had some time left on it which allowed us to take the bus to the airport in the morning. Takes about 40 minutes. A great public transportation deal.

Hotel St. Denis is an exceptional value. It is far from the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at but look at the price and clearly it won't be as nice as a place that's $2-300 per night. It is charming and clean. My room was given a free upgrade so I had a suite. The second room was odd because it featured a couple of chairs, mini fridge and large whirlpool tub (thanks but no thanks). Still the room had everything we needed, plenty of space and faux hardwood floors (much better then a typical hotel carpet IMO).

Parking was close by and reasonably priced. It is close to the Metro station but everywhere I needed to go was within a 2 mile walk and I don't mind walking to explore the city. The neighborhood is not the best but not the worst either.

If I return to Montreal I would definitely look to stay at Hotel St. Denis again.

Good location. 1 block away from the metro station. Only 4 metro stops from central station. Lots of shops around the hotel. Walking distance into the shopping area.

The rooms are comfortable & spacious. The cleaners do a good job cleaning the room. Wifi signal is strong in the room.

Room rates are affordable.

I would have to say I would defiantly go back to this hotel if I went back to Montreal. The room was very clean. Its a basic room for a great price. Plus the location was great. Everything seemed close by i.e. Old Montreal, greyhound station /Berri station. I have no complains.

We just got back from Montreal and needed 2 rooms for 3 nights. For the first time travelling with our three teenage sons, we got a room large enough that they weren't tripping over each other, and 3 real beds- no cot! What a pleasure! Our room was spacious with a large king bed. The hotel is on the last block of a very cool student-filled area with loads of little restaurants- its just at the edge of the 'hood but no problem. 2 blocks from a great Metro with connections everywhere. Front desk was pleasant. When you are in Montreal there is too much to do to stay inside a hotel- but this one is clean and reasonable. Will definitely stay there again.

Hint: We booked through Venere.com and were able to make last-minute changes of dates with no penalty. Yay!!

very convenience to connect YUL by taking 747 and getting-off at Berri Terminal.
Room clear and comfortable, especially for 1-2 visitors.
Metro (Berry-UQAM) nearby (20 meters), very fast connection to the whole city underground.

This is a basic, clean hotel (like noted in many postings). There is someone at the front desk at all times - nice and attentive people. Very helpful as well. The room we had was a bit strange (old building) and for a family of four yet ample space. We were towards the middle of the building so we did not experience street noise issues. The shower and the sink/commode were in separate rooms/odd locations - seems like a retrofit to an old room. The sink/commode was small - just enough room for one person. TV/cable box were old and cumbersome to operate. This is just a description - not that we care to watch TV while traveling. If you care for clean, affordable, well located place, this is it. Metro station is just around the corner, walking to Vieux Montreal area is very doable - 20-25 minutes (can be a challenge with people with impediments). Via train station is close by - taxi ride was below 20USD. Pack light and compact.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street.
