“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2008

Our stay at The Hotel Nelligan was exceptional in all ways. First, the property is beautiful. Set in the middle of old Montreal, The Nelligan has fabulous decor throughout. The lobby/bar/dining area is very well appointed, and the rooms are the same. We stayed in a standard room for three nights, and then upgraded to a suite for the last two nights of our trip. The pictures should speak for themselves as to the elegance of the rooms. On top of the property details, The Nelligan offers many other ameneties that really make it a premiere hotel. First, the breakfast served each morning is wonderful. Second, we LOVED spending time on the rooftop bar, enjoying the glass of wine and cheese provided each night. There was no better place to get a view of the Old Montreal streets than from the rooftop. Finally, I must rave about the service at The Nelligan. Everyone was extremely helpful, no matter what our need. The front desk had wonderful suggestions for dinner and made reservations for us. I can't imagine that there is a better place to stay in Montreal!

  • Liked — Everything! There's not a single thing about the Nelligan that wasn't above par.
  • Disliked — not a thing!

Stayed at the Hotel Nelligan for a business trip to Montreal and couldn't have been happier with this wonderful hotel. Upon arrival, I found out that the hotel had overbooked, and their solution was to upgrade me to their 2 bedroom penthouse suite which was superb. The style and decor of the hotel is simple, funky and chic, the showers are amazing, and all of the little touches the hotel provides made my stay unbeatable.

Unfortunately, my penthouse stay was for one night only, so it was awfully difficult to pack my things and move into a standard room but once I was settled, i was (almost) just as pleased. The hotel is unbelievably quiet - I don't believe I heard another guest the entire 4 nights I was there. The rooms were immaculate and the housekeeping was stealthy - I never saw them and my room was magically perfect every day.

One of the nice little touches provided by the hotel is the mini-bar, which included actual sized bottles of wine and liquor - at incredibly affordable prices. After my stay in the penthouse, my traveling partners and I consumed both bottles of wine and several of the non-alcoholic beverages and much to our amazement, the charge was around $70. I thought for sure we would pay $50 per bottle of wine - not so. We later joked that the Nelligan is the cheapest place in Montreal to drink.

There is also something to be said with regard to the lovely Old World Montreal neighborhood that the hotel is situated in. This was my first visit to Montreal, so it was very nice to have a hotel in a neighborhood with as much personality as it does - cobblestone streets, funky little shops (a few tourist traps) and restaurants / coffee shops.

The staff at the Nelligan was fantastic - very polite and helpful when I did need some assistance with the DSL line in my room - 10 minutes after I called to inquire about having it fixed, I was connected.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Montreal, whether it be for business or vacation - I couldn't find a single fault and hope to someday return.

We returned to the Nelligan in August, around the Jazz Festival weekend. The hotel remains consistently excellent. The concierge, and desk staff, are delightful - always willing to provide assistance, and graciously accommodated our need for some last minute restaurant fixes. We will continue to return to the Nelligan when in Montreal - have even found their bedlight supplier for work we intend to do in our home in Boston.

We've been to the Nelligan 3 times before and I must tell you, there isn't another place in Montreal that can offer the comfort and attention you get here! We have travelled extensively and LOVE the Nelligan! We introduced my brother and his wife to this hotel this time (they met us for a family bday) and although they have stayed in MANY MANY hotels worldwide, they acknowledged they wouldn't stay anywhere else in the future!!! Our friends from Northern Ireland swear by this beautiful boutique hotel too! The rate was very very reasonable but the extras made it incredible!! We'll be back....thanks for making hubby's bday trip so amazing....even in the winter and cold!!! Our walks through Old Montreal made the cold sooooo tolerable!!! The Christmas decorations made it a dreamlike wonderland!Thanks to the staff at the Nelligan!!! Your efforts are always recognized! See you next time! Joyeux Noel les amis!

The reception staff were great - there were always several of them available, so you did not have to wait to be served. They could not have been more helpful with directions, taxis, etc. There is a PC for customer use behind reception where we were able to check in for our returning flights online. The hotel is in a great location in the old quarter - very easy walking to nearby restaurants, Notre Dame & the other sites. Our room was gorgeous; huge & with an incredibly comfortable bed. The bathroom had a large shower cubicle & spa bath. The bar can be very busy early evening, due to people waiting for the restaurant & the wine/cheese promotion. Would definitely recommend this hotel & would stay here again.

Hotel Nelligan went beyond our expectations. From the second we walked in we were impressed with the great location, service, lobby, hallways, and our room was just amazing. We were suppose to leave on Sunday but stayed another night, we just did not want to leave. This was the first trip my boyfriend and i have taken together and we could have not asked for a more perfect experience. Montreal the city is also so great! We went to the botanical gardans, great food (especially Gibbys) and walks around the Platau (stay away from st catherine/cresent), laval street is nice but they were doing lots of road work, so not a good time to hang out there.

We picked this hotel from Trip Advisor and just loved the location in the old part of Montreal. It was a beautiful time of year with warm days and brilliant fall colors. We had a wonderful room with brick walls, king size bed and view of the Notre Dame Basilica from our window. Everything was great and we loved the breakfast in our room every morning which was more than we could eat. The staff were great and spoke excellent English and French. Overall, it was a great experience which we would highly recommend.
