“Hugely disappointing room! Great location!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We booked 4 nights here for our 10th anniversary in a king superior room. We did a prepaid reservation with Travelocity.
The hotel is very nice. Great location. Terrific bar downstairs and on terrace.

However I think we were given the worst room in our class of room. You would think they could have done better given the reason for our stay.

The sad little room we were in had little light and no view. It was next to the public bathroom for the terrace restaurant and bar. The bathroom was adequate, but only a shower no double jacuzzi tub. The room needed repair. The carpet wasn't laid properly and there was a ridge from the foot of the bed to the bath which you tripped in at night. The rain shower had a slight leak and chirped all night.
What could have been a flawless visit to Montreal which we would repeat was sooo disappointing! Management should be more aware!

There is a lot to like about the Nelligan.

It is very much a boutique hotel with a rather luxurious feel. It is ideally located in Old Montreal and it is an absolute delight to wander straight out into the narrow streets and explore the shopping and dining opportunities. The hotel is a very modern re-creation in an older building and the new decor really works. The rooms are really well presented with an excellent bed and shower/bathroom and overall facilities with the feature brick wall being an outstanding feature. There is an excellent sound system which I found to be wonderful for background jazz!

Some rooms face onto an atrium style central void which gives a nice window perspective but can also make the room a little dark because of the need to close the blinds. However, there are excellent lighting options which contribute to giving the room a comfortable and relaxing ambience.

There is an inviting outdoor Terrace Bar and Restaurant on the top floor. We enjoyed a really great lunch on a beautiful day with excellent service and really good food and wine by the glass. It was very hard to leave! The main bar adjacent to the Entry Foyer is also a nice spot for pre-dinner drinkies and the complimentary drink voucher is a nice touch.

The staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient and really compliment the overall package.

It is worth noting that the ground floor bar, the internal atrium and the Terrace Bar can be a bit noisy if your room overlooks the atrium. Sounds seems to rise even though the rooms seem to be well sound proofed! This is not a major issue if you are an inner city person and accustomed to the the sounds of the city however if this is not your scene there are rooms which are a little more secluded.

However, my overall impression is that this is a very classy hotel with excellent presentation and it "feels" like a nice place to stay. The staff and facilities complement this feeling and the "Terrace" is not to be missed on a sunny summer afternoon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the atrium if the sounds of the city are not for you.

Superb hotel with excellent location at a good spot in the old city. Excellent food and concierge staff (Melissa, Nathalie and Maude) who were exceedingy knowledgable. Easy to access museums and botanical gardens on foot or by Metro.

A nice "regular" cozy room with a view court. I love the decoration and also a lot of small details in my room , details who make the difference as the music and the tv set with jazz music at the entrance, the iPhone table , the very good quality of the beauty products in the bathroom . Also the paintings exhibition in the lobby and in the corridor. The staff was also very professional and welcoming.
A nice address to remember

We chose this property because of its #1 Ranking on TripAdvisor. This gives credibility to Tripadvisor and the hotel. Location - in the heart of old Montreal where there is amazing night life, tourist attractions and wonderful food. Room - large, comfortable, and unique - probably the coolest room I've ever stayed in. Service - friendly, pro-active, and a concierge who was incredibly knowledgable - she made our great vacation perfect. I like to experiment with hotels but would not risk trying anywhere else in Montreal. AWESOME!

I just returned from a week long stay at the hotel Nelligan for business. I have to say every aspect of our stay there was wonderful. The location is excellent, right in the heart of Old Montreal, within walking distance to the waterfront, shops, galleries and a host of fantastic bistros and restaurants. My room was labeled a "junior suite" which was a large roon with a desk, king bed huge bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower (great water pressure!). The bath soaps and shampoos were wonderful smelling - like a spa day every day! the meeting spaces they afforded our group (about 25) was unique, spacious and comortable. The food offerings (breakfast and lunch each day for the meeting, plus 2 cocktail receptions) was by far the best "meeting food" I've ever had. The space for our receptions (penthouse suite) had a fantastic private rooftop balcony with views overlooking the river. Staff was gracious, friendly and accomodating. I would definately recommend this property for a business meeting, but also would stay there again if I ever find myself in Montreal for pleasure.

I had my wedding at Hotel Nelligan recently in July and most of our guests (including ourselves) stayed there. The wedding coordinator Marie-Pier was wonderful, she was very organized and helpful every step of the way. The venue was beautiful (our cocktail hour was in the terrace and the view was amazing), the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was good.
Our room was beautiful (backdrop of some of our wedding photos) and we couldn't be happier about the entire experience.

Thank you Hotel Nelligan in making our special day extra special and memorable!!
