Suggestions for hotels and b&b

These are general suggestions for hotels from someone who never stay there, just heard things from people who have.... By the way, if you are staying in Montreal for a week or more, you should check out moreMontreal apartments, it's our apartment rental site that also has a short term rental section that list fully furnished apartments in many different Montreal neighbourhoods. For more complete lists of suggestions, you should check out Tripadvisor , Frommer's , etc.
  • Best business hotels : both the Hôtel Inter-Continental Montreal in old Montreal and the Delta Montreal have special business services. The Inter-Continental is located in the finance district and the Montreal Stock Exchange in old Montreal and the Delta is downtown near the business district. The The Queen Elizabeth Hotel also have business services (downtown).

  • Best overall hotel : the Hotel de l'Institut has a very good reputation, it's actually an school for hotel and restaurant workers and chefs so the service is good and the restaurant is said to be excellent.

  • Best "old-style" hotel : if you are looking for an elegant hotel with full service, there's the Ritz-Carlton Montréal (of course) and the The Queen Elizabeth Hotel. The Loews Hotel Vogue is a relatively new hotel but also have that tradition of service (they have a good reputation).

  • Best family hotel : that's a tough one, most hotels that cater to families are large chains of hotels like the Hotel Plaza Howard Johnson or the Quality Hotel Downtown.

  • Best small hotel : the Auberge de la Fontaine in the Plateau Mont-Royal district has won awards, the other small hotels maybe cheaper but sometimes you get what you pay for.

  • Best b&b : the Gite du Sans-Souci on St-Paul street west in old Montreal look like one of the nicest b&b in town (altough is more like a very small hotel). I'm still looking for its exact address though.

  • Best dorm rooms : the new Auberge Alternative du Vieux-Montréal looks good, is inexpensive and located in old Montreal, what more would you want?

  • If you plan on staying more than two weeks, a good idea is one of those appartment/hotel which charge by the week, it's less expensive that way. La Tour Centre-Ville is a good example.
