My partner and I stayed at the Nelligan whilst on a conference.
The hotel is located in the old part of montreal, near cathedrals, art galleries and the like. Great area for strolling around.
The Nelligan is all about style. It has a hip funky vibe that would appeal to well to do twenty and thirty somethings as well as some of the older set. It has an understated but somewhat high end boutique atmosphere. In other words, I wouldn't stay there if I was looking for a bargain hotel just to sleep and shower. I also did not see any children during our stay and I wouldn't think it to be suitable for a family trip. It is, however, the perfect spot for a romantic decadent weekend away for a couple. Much of the appeal is the elegance of the surroundings.
We had a standard room with a king sized bed. The room had beautiful quality linens and furniture , a wellstocked bar and fridge, a nice sound system (that will be playing relaxing music when you arrive) and a stylish bathroom (soaker tub, beautiful sink and lighting). All of the accessories were in stylish stainless steel.
The hotel had impecable service from all staff. Quick helpful front desk, fast vallet and great bar staff in thier adjoining cocktail bar and rooftop bar. The bar area is perfect for a few decadent martini's before you hit the town or retire for the night (be warned - high prices but with luxery brand names and obvious detailled prep work involved. The cucumber martini was surprisingly delicious and refreshing as was the watermelon mojito.) The rooftop bar had an awesome view and great ambiance. The bars appear to be moderately popular on weekends which do add to the noise factor if your room is facing the interior courtyard in which the bar is located (we didn't find it to be excessive).
Food - Breakfast is included in the stay and is quite pleasant for a complimentary continental setup. Fresh pastries and breads, cheeses, boiled eggs, fruit salad and much more and excellent coffee. There are stainless steel trays of green apples everwhere for the taking at the Nelligan which add to the funky vibe of the place. There is also a complimentary wine and cheese social each night also included with the stay, which includes some excellent french cheeses and a decent glass of wine. We found staff happy to replace the cheese tray with fresh if you noticed it getting empty. We didn't try the restaurent service.
Overall if you are interested in a hip yet classy place to explore Montreal from and cost is not an issue, you will love the Nelligan.
