“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

My husband and I spent 3 nights in this delightful hotel, ideally situated in the old town. The welcome and service are warm and efficient, the room large and comfortable. We recommend the signature restaurant where we had a superb dinner.Breakfast is served with a smile and is delicious too. A very pleasant place to stay , especially in the summer , where there will be more activity around.

We spent 2 nights at Hotel Nelligan, in a Petit Suite, for my spouse's birthday. We had a package that included continental breakfast, valet parking, and free internet. Price was reasonable for the area and quality of the room.
We pulled up in front of the building and someone came to the car right away. Check in was fast and easy.
Staff was pleasant and spoke both French and English. Special mention to Maude, the concierge. She was very friendly and helpful.
We ordered ice and it was at our door within 5 minutes. My spouse received a card and chocolate covered strawberries for his birthday. Nice touch.

We chose to have "quiet" rather than the view, so our room looked at another building. That was a choice we made. We had no issues with noise during our stay.
We loved the exposed brick walls. The bathroom with double jacuzzi with separate shower was large and clean. I wasn't a fan of the toiletries. To me, they smelled like Vicks.
The bed and pillows were superb. The fireplace looked great but was a bit of a let down. It may have had fake flames at one time. It had a light, or you could have a tiny red tinge to the fake logs. It did throw heat though.
Room was spacious and very appealing. It was cozy, romantic and modern.
Turn down service was good with yummy Lindor chocolates and bottled water. Although we were out most of the morning and part of the afternoon, our room wasn't cleaned until mid-afternoon.

The common areas, including the elevators, were nicely decorated and pleasing.
The only "not so great" area for us was the lounge area, although very cozy. Perhaps they were short staffed during our stay, but it was next to impossible to get any service. Although it wasn't busy, after 15 minutes of waiting, we went and got our own drinks at the bar. A couple came in off the street to have food and drinks. After sitting with the menus for a longer than necessary amount of time, they made a complaint and left. It seemed to be that way throughout the weekend.
The location is terrific.
Overall, a very good experience. I would recommend this hotel.
We would stay here again, and I would still take "quiet" over the view. The streets are very narrow so I'm not convinced the view would be worth the noise that comes with it.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Always a pleasure to help a fellow traveler.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are quieter.

All I can do is concur with the other reviews of this delightful hotel. Merveilleux is marvelous in french and this hotel and staff are exactly that. All staff speak french but gladly transition to English which we needed. From the front desk,concierge, and restuarant staff all were quite enjoyable and friendly. Kind of a hip vibe with exposed brick and different ceiling heights in the common areas. The exposed brick continued into the spotless and fully equipped room. Great water pressure and plenty of hot water too. Superb location and would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arose.

Room Tip: If want a view request it as some have limited views.

My wife and I recently spent a weekend in Montreal and stayed at the delightful Hotel Nelligan in the old port section of the city. First off, the location is fantastic, tucked in behind the Notre Dame Basilica on Rue St. Paul, a narrow, winding, cobblestone street packed with dozens of fantastic restaurants, bars and boutiques. You could basically spend a week and never have to venture farther than a few hundred yards from the hotel. But Montreal is very walkable, making this an excellent location for seeing the whole city. The hotel itself is beautiful, having undergone a recent multi-million-dollar reno. Lots of exposed brick walls and wood beams from the original building mixed in with modern design finishes. The lobby is very inviting and the bustling bar and restaurant give the place a very "happening" feel. The staff were all extremely friendly and efficient and greeted us with vouchers for complimentary drinks at the bar. Our room was lovely: spacious, spotless, quiet and very comfortable. The rates were also very very reasonable given the quality of the accommodations. Because of the time of year, the rooftop bar was closed, but I gather it's a real neighbourhood hotspot during the warmer months. We hope to get back again soon to check it out.

We spent an evening in old Montreal and decided to book this place for one night.. This is a very nice hotel close to many restaurants and bars. Very charming, the rooms are great! Old brick walls, fireplace, nice bathroom. Ipod station, nice entertainment system and free internet.

A very romantic hotel! Highly recommended for romantic escape! :)

As quaint as the Hotel was, as perfect as its location was, as romantic was the room, the staff still made the experience. We received nothing but the best treatment by every single member of the staff. Courteous, outgoing, helpful, they gave great recommendations and explained everything perfectly for My wife and my first trip to Montreal together. We had a few in room meals that hit the spot perfectly and even the bartenders were helpful. We couldn't ask more for a romantic getaway and I can't see a reason to ever stay anywhere else in Montreal

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Nelligan for our 3rd year Anniversary and it was amazing. This was our first time visiting Canada and wanted to stay in Old Montreal. The reviews on this hotel were fantastic and decided to book it, especially since they were running a special where you get 50% off your second night. When we got to the hotel we were greeted by valet/bellhop/door men who took our bags and parked our car for the duration of our stay. Parking is a little expensive, but it is totally worth it. The concierge and all of the hotel employees were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel room itself was amazing!!! We got a petite suite, which had an extremely comfortable king size bed, a fireplace that was just what we needed after walking back to the hotel after dinner, and an amazing shower and large jacuzzi tub! Everything was better than we expected during our stay at Hotel Nelligan. We also got two $11 vouchers at the hotel's bar, which was a nice little incentive to get drinks there. The hotel is also in a fantastic location and is within walking distance to many bars, restaurants, cafes, museums, shopping etc. We are so happy that we chose this hotel to stay at and the next time we visit Montreal, we will be sure to return. If you stay at Hotel Nelligan you will not be disappointed.
