“Great for a business trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Stayed at this hotel for a full week early December 2012 for a business trip.

Rooms are great, big, with high ceilings, and cleaned daily. And there is everything you need: Brand new iron, ironing board, safe, fridge, microwave and even a stove and dishwasher, although I did not use those last two items. The hotel is very quiet (I had one of the back rooms on the parking lot, where there is no traffic at all).

The staff were wonderful. Reception and concierge were polite, helpful, professional. Checking in and out was a breeze, concierge service was flawless (luggage, calling a cab, etc). Everyone in the hotel is bilingual, the people manning the breakfast room were nice and friendly.

Wifi: This was actually some of the more dependable and powerful wifi signal I have had in a hotel in a long time. We connected a laptop and two phones and I did a full day's work on my corporate network via VPN without any problems at all. Reception simply gave us a login code good for the 8 days.

This hotel, in addition to the remarkable value (the price was very reasonable) comes with a number of unbelievable conveniences. For example, I believe that the person who designed the laundry room next to the gym deserves a Nobel prize. The laundry room is very clean, the appliances new and obviously well-maintained. You take your stuff upstairs for a wash, you get a 60 minute workout in the process (30 for the wash, 30 for the dryer). I was very impressed by the gym: Three sturdy and very modern treadmills, cross-trainers, a full free-weight set, and a weights machine. There is also a small size pool (there's pictures online) and you get to work out on the top floor, offering a breathless view of downtown Montreal.

My recommendation for the hotel would be to provide a laundry dispenser of some sort. You have to bring your own.

Depending on what you're looking for, the hotel is very well situated: It was close to downtown and my company's Montreal office on Sq. Victoria. Chinatown is also walking distance, as well as St-Catherine, which is right there.

Access to public transportation is the best part. The numerous bus lines that run on Rene Levesque (including the amazing 747 bus that takes you directly to the airport for 8 dollars) are half a block away. Square Victoria metro (orange line to Plateau) is a block away, and the McGill stop is 2 blocks. Basically, there isn't really anywhere in town you can't get to with a metro pass.

There's a few (very minor) negatives. To me, these are so insignificant, that they are barely worth mentioning. They are more recommendations for improvements for the hotel: (1) My shower always leaked on the floor. I'm not sure how it happened, it's like the curtain was not water-proof. (2) Sometimes, there is a faint smell of stale tobacco on the floor (my non-smoking room did not smell at all or I would have moved to another one). (3) The continental breakfast is free and included, which is great. But it does lack variety (after 5 days of being there, I decided to go out because I got bored of cereal and waffles) (4) my TV reception was weak and the remote didn't work very well.

Nothing to call home about.

I come to Montreal for work about three times a year and will be staying here from now on.

Room Tip: Many options: Views, quietness... Ask reception.

Le Square Phillips Hotel is unique in that virtually every room comes with a fully equipped kitchen. Its location is in the shopping district, but it is within walking distance of Old Montreal, the business district and the Plateau area. The rooms are adequate and incredibly clean. This hotel appears to be more of a business traveler choice, as evidenced by the fact that I have never been able to check in before 3pm on a weekday. Weekends appear to be much slower. If you are traveling for a "romantic getaway" or a special occasion there are far better choices. However, if you have to spend a week or two in Montreal, I could not recommend a better hotel. The junior suite king that I stayed in on the last trip was a full, spacious, one bedroom apartment that had all of the amenities of home and a hotel.

We stayed for a family shopping trip and found this hotel to be very well located with a very quiet and hugely spacious room. We chose a family suite which accomodated the 6 of us quite well.
The bathroom was fine, but is a bit dated.
There is a full kitchen and dining area if you want to prepare a meal there.
Continental breakfast was included and was fine also.
DO NOT PARK in the lot next door as you have to pay for the next day at 4 A.M.

I stayed here during my recent visit to Montreal. I like the fact that the Valet Parking was secured and cheap at $22/day with in and out privileges. Simon the concierge was very nice and good to talk to. The exercise area on the top floor was cool, although you can only use one elevator. The kitchen was useful although I wish they had supplied oil or a non stick pan. The beds were firm. The external hall way noise was minimal, the room was spacious and the room was clean. It is close to pretty much everything. A 10 min walk to the Bell Centre, 2 min walk to Saint Catherine's shopping, 15 min walk to Metropolis.
Con's the shower leaked everywhere and the television was less than HD. The shower had three problems, one the shower curtain did not prevent the water from leaking out, two the edges where the tiles and tub met allowed for water to leak out and there was no drainage out of the tub. Solution 1 would be to have better design of the tub, a better shower curtain or have stoppers to prevent the water from leaking out of the shower. There is free continental breakfast from 0630-0930 but I never made it.

Room Tip: Book Early about 139-149/night

This is a fantastic property which offers lots of facilites ie the heated pool and the gym also the laundry these are particulary helpful for longer stays. Being able to cook for yourself but still be near lots of restaurants make for a more comfortable visit.

The staff are extremely helpful and accomodating. The color scheme is a bit dull but the rooms are large with high ceilings and the price is not bad. Breakast is included in the cost.

We have stayed here a couple of times and happy to return again

Room Tip: A higher floor and a front room has a better outlook

This hotel has a great central location in Montreal right next to Rue Saint Catherine the main shopping strip, close to Chinatown, Old Montreal and Rue Saint Lauren where you can find a lot of bars and night clubs. The room was large and clean, great wifi and breakfast was included in the price which was a bonus.
