“Ordinary hotel despite the good reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We've stayed in this hotel for a couple of days. The GPS has some problems getting you to the correct place since it is located near a square with the same name, but it is easy to find when you are close to the square. The rooms are good, ordinary rooms and clean (very important). The lobby has not much to see. The location is really in the middle of Montreal hub, just in the downtown, so for business men it will be ideal and a good value for money. For couples like us, it is as mentioned just an ordinary hotel but does provide all you need.

I spent a couple of nights in Montréal, first at the Embassy Suites and then at the Square Phillips. I booked the latter because of it's high score on Tripadvisor (#4 at this point) and was very disappointed. The room was dull, the building old, and I had a view on a parking lot... It seemed like management wants to save where possible. Breakfast was also disappointing, with a large queue for the buffet and even the food was not tasty. Only nice thing was the pool and the view from the rooftop terrasse.
As said, I would rather recommend the Embassy Suites, which has the same rates and far bigger and more modern rooms, friendlier staff and better overall quality.

This hotel is a perfect base to explore Montreal with a subway stop on the Orange line about a block and half away. The room was large and spacious and the kitchen fully equipped. Nice tub in the bathroom and minimal noise -- usually I only heard someone when they were literally walking by the door, and that was it. Great rooftop views and being in the lap pool while the sun was setting was gorgeous. Front desk reception service was excellent, and every member of the staff was polite and professional. Old Montreal is about a 20 minute walk downhill -- it's the uphill that might exhaust you a bit on a hot day, especially coming up McGill. Great shopping in area, though honestly, I didn't do any of it -- too excited to get on the train and explore. Would definitely stay again, without hesitation!

Room Tip: While breakfast is adequate, there's a Tim Horton's across the street. If you want groceries...

Selected this property based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. It is modern, clean and has a very large room/s. Breakfast was a bit of a struggle at times with the queue for the toaster and no hot food. Very close to shopping precinct.

Stayed for 5 nights with my wife. Spotless, modern, extremely comfortable. Every employee I met was friendly and kind. Breakfast was high quality but simple. Lots of nice restaurants nearby. Great rooftop pool, gym and outdoor seating area. Excellent bedding and A/C. Ideal location for exploring the city by foot or Metro.

Room Tip: Junior Suite was really, really nice.

Very convenient hotel for people arriving by train. We stayed here with our baby and found the facilities well-suited to a young family. The kitchen was well-equipped, but we had trouble finding a grocery store nearby, and our wine came from a sketchy depanneur -- next time I would come better prepared. The included breakfast was more than adequate. The hotel is located in a converted building (used to be a warehouse, I think). It would be interesting to see more of this featured in the design, beyond the few architectural drawings in the halls.

Our family of five stayed at the Le Square Phillips for three nights. We were upgraded to a corner two-bedroom suite. It was beyond perfect. Plenty of space just steps away from Rue Saint Catherine shops and the Metro, yet just a short walk to Vieux Montreal. There is even an indoor pool/gym area and an outdoor rooftop sundeck for relaxing after walking throughout the city. Definitely where I'll stay on my next visit to Montreal!

Room Tip: Book early!
