The location is great. The room was old deco and very nice and large. The staff was great, particularly the night stuff (when usually they don't know anything), they were super helpful. Would recommend and come back

Very unique hotel with great service! The front desk helped make us a great reservation at a near by Bistro which was a great choice. Thehotel is located in the perfect part of town, very close to attractions, the water, and some historic streets. Very cool art and rooms are interesting, something you wont see again! We had a fat man and a horse painting above our bed- hahah.

I booked this hotel for my boyfriend's birthday.
The room was clean, but a little small.
We loved the complimentary breakfast, lots of choice.
The location is very good, if you want to visit the old Montreal.

I loved the lobby and the hallways - not only the art but the colorful carpets, large windows, and light-colored walls, but the room was disappointing. It was large but a bit dark; the walls painted dark green and the floor covered with mirky brown carpets. The room was so big, it could easily accommodate a king-size bed, but only had a queen-size. The furnishings were also dark and a bit gloomy. The bathroom was small, with no counter space and a tiny hairdryer attached to the wall. I don't understand why the owner of all this art would not splurge on better hairdryers! The toiletries were also not of the top quality.
This is really a 3.5 star hotel, not a four-star. I would have rated this hotel 3, not 4, were it not for the beautiful lobby and the art in the hallways. If you stay here, make sure you visit all the floors and check out the art.
A big plus for this place is that it is located very close to the wonderful Olive and Gourmando bakery; a big minus is that the front desk staff was not very helpful and that they do not have a concierge. The first night we arrived in Montreal, we stayed at another 4-star hotel up the street, and LHotel does not measure up to that one.

We wanted to visit Montreal because we had heard that it felt like Europe. In order to get this full experience, we made sure to book a hotel in Old Montreal, which is the area with the lovely architecture. This area has been featured in many movies posing as somewhere in Europe rather than Canada. Our favorite is the Benji/Chevy Chase movie, "Oh Heavenly Dog", and we were able to find many of the locations used in the movie by walking around the Old Montreal area. In searching websites, we found L Hotel, and booked it as it had good reviews. A lot of reviewers commented about how they loved the art on the walls. I really don't care that much about art, but it was at least interesting to walk down the halls. I care about having a nicely decorated, visually appealing, immaculate and comfortable room.

We drove up from Brooklyn to Montreal on Canada Day, which was a bad idea. The border was packed and due to a few detours in our drive up from Brooklyn, we did not make it to the hotel until close to midnight. But we were able to check in quickly, as the front desk already had been expecting us, which was a nice touch since by that time we just wanted to get to our room. We had them valet park the car and when I asked "what we should do with the car?", the smart-aleck front desk person replied, "put some gas in it and drive it around sometimes." Being that it was midnight, we accepted the $22 a day parking, although others on the hotel review site have said there are cheaper options close by. So if you arrive at a reasonable time, that is something you should look into finding.

The room we booked was a nice sized room with 2 queen beds, a desk and a lounge chair. It was comfortable for the three of us, with the exception that they only had towels, cups and bottled water for 2 people. The TV in the room was a bit small for the size of the room. There was a fridge in the room, which was convenient to have, but it made a lot of popping noises. The air conditioner was also loud when it came on. So bring some earplugs if you are a light sleeper like me. The shower water pressure was weak and controlling the temperature was difficult at first. The beds were very comfortable, and the air conditioner worked well, which was essential in the hot temperatures we experienced during our stay.

The next day, we asked the front desk for extra towels and they made sure that we got them. But it seems like the front desk should have realized that there were three of us, and ordered three of everything else. But I suppose we also could have told them and they would have provided three of everything. But we had no foresight to ask on that day, but at least on the last day we put a note (in what I think was probably incorrect French) for the maid service and apparently they understood as the maids left us three cups and three bottles of water as well as more towels. So thankfully their maids are very attentive.

The hotel was close to a lot of tourist attractions and nice bakeries. We enjoyed the breakfast pastries from Olive et Gourmando best. Using the subway (closest to orange line, Victoria Square) was easy and convenient to get out to locations like Plateau Mont-Royal. All in all, we would definitely stay here again.

The hubby and I stayed one night at the L while visiting old Montreal. Big room, yellow walls with red oriental accents and wood furnishings. High ceilings, tall window with street view. Requested a single queen but we got a room with 2 queen beds. Room has Keurig, mini fridge, air conditioning, free wifi, flat screen tv; bathroom is small but has a nice jetted tub. Lack of place to put toiletries was a pain. Beds / pillows were very comfy and the room was quiet. Hotel is decorated throughout with art and prints from well known artists. There is also a small fitness center and a nice bar area. You can purchase breakfast at the hotel or get breakfast nearby. The food is expensive everywhere so you won't save a lot by going outside the hotel; if you are in a hurry, the hotel if fine and convenient.

Location is great and everything is within walking distance. If you drive, it seems easiest to just pay the $24/ day to have the valet park your car. You get in/out privileges but will probably not need a car at all for the old town area. There was a public parking ramp just down the street with a $16 per day rate. Not sure if its safe or if you get in/out but might be worth looking into.

While in old Montreal, check out the maple syrup stand a bit past the square near the market. It's a family farm and the syrup has a unique and delicious oaky flavor. Good prices and options; great souvenirs!
