“Very "hip" vibe, but short on a few touches.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Very nice hotel, with an extremely hip vibe. The hipster, party vibe is so strong it is a turn off if that is not what you are looking for in a hotel. The rooms were ok, but again a bit too hip at the expense of being comfortable: Non-traditional bathroom with blue curtain only to separate sinks, tub and shower from bed. Also the rooms and halls are dark, but that is common at W hotels. The hotel is loud on the weekends. I ate in the restaurant for breakfast, and it was very good, but room service was extremely expensive and poor quality. The concierge and front desk were very hospitable and helpful, which is a plus. Next time I go to Montreal, I will likely try a different hotel...but for some I could see this being a prime choice.

Room Tip: Get a very high floor since the noise from the clubs on the ground floor and the mezzanine is very l...

The best thing about this property is the location, great access to public transportation and walking distance to many sites. Also it is dog friendly. Otherwise it's typical of any W hotel, which is very nice but often lacks personal charm.

Luxurious, trendy, darkly-lit, well-located, and comfortable. I wouldn't expect any less from the W. In addition to the obvious, here is a more personal list of pros and cons.

Pros:
- We ordered room service twice and both were excellent. The individuals who brought our meals were pleasant as well. I also liked the candy canes that came with breakfast.
- There's a club on the ground floor and for those worrying about sleepless nights and drunk guests, it wasn't a problem for us at all.
- Excellent reading material (newspapers, magazines, coffee table book) in room and around the hotel.
- Right across from Square Victoria metro stop
- We got 2 free drinks at Bartini with our reservation and the bartender was very friendly and accommodating.
- The Bliss face wash was heavenly.

Cons:
- No pool (although I'm sure plenty of people don't care about this)
- I've also never been a fan of how all the Ws have bouncers and velvet ropes at the entrances on the weekends. I understand why they have them (several late-night establishments on site) but I find them intimidating since I'm not usually dressed to impress. Although I love the W, it just doesn't provide the same intimate, "homey" atmosphere of a boutique hotel.

Other:
- Not a problem for us but the room looks into the shower and there are no blinds or curtains

Overall, an excellent hotel and I would stay here or any other W hotel again.

Based in New Zealand, where there arent any Starwood hotels, so staying at a W is a treat. The W Hotel in Montreal does have the Wow factor with the design led hotel room, good space and nice touches like the Acura car service (free one way trip around the city), excellent city centre location right next to a subway stop and close proximity to the old town. Door staff were very welcoming and the concierge was helpful in finding us a number of local restaurants to eat.

We had a great time travelling around Canada and the States and the W Montreal was our favourite hotel on our trip

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend away in Montreal. Located right on the subway and on the edge of Old Montreal we where able to explore the city easily. My wife had a massage at the Away spa with Mike and she said it was the best one she has ever had. The staff looked after our every need and the swank room was perfect for the quiet get away we needed.

Room Tip: Corner suites of course have a more windows and a way better view of the city.
