I had the pleasure of being a guest at the Le Mount Stephen Hotel back in May for 3 nights as part of a wedding. We had booked the Sky Loft Suite w/ Terrace since we were traveling with our 2 young kids. Overall we were extremely impressed. Coming off of its extensive renovations, the hotel looked brand new. From furnishings to fixtures, to large contemporary bathrooms, to hallways and other spaces, the hotel did a tremendous job with its transformation. Overall the Sky Loft Suite was a great option with an open space, bathroom, couch and table, desk and plenty of space and the bottom floor. Then a stairway up to a top floor bedroom with large soaking tub by the window and separate shower that even had mood lighting. Although I would definitely book the overall suite again, it wasn't the best with our kids since we had assumed that the couch downstairs would fold out as a bed, which wasn't the case and there was no real way to block out the windows or light for anyone that wanted to sleep in the dark. For sleeping for the kids, the hotel was quick to make up the couch for one of our kids to sleep and provided a roll-away for the other. From a service perspective, everyone was incredibly friendly, customer service oriented and went out of their way to make you feel welcome. And a very special thank you to Hazel, the incredible house keeper that continued to go above and beyond to make sure we and our kids had everything we needed. Even finding super small slippers for the bedside for our kids which our girls actually loved. The hotel restaurant and bar, Bar George, was truly one of the best places to grab a drink in the city, and food in the restaurant was outstanding. We would absolutely recommend a stay at the Le Mount Stephen and will certainly visit again. Read less

I have to admire the ambition of this place. The renovated original building is beautiful and they have incorporated the bar and restaurant perfectly to make the most of the architectural features. The modern building is striking from the outside and comfortable. As for the decor of the new building, the reception area is a horror. Tacky and glitzy It is totally at odds with the older building and a more minimalist approach would have gone a long way here. The rooms, by contrast are elegant and tasteful. We had a junior suite and connecting deluxe and they were both very comfortable. The junior suite was spacious but curiously under furnished. There would have been plenty of space for another armchair and a coffee table. But everything was of high quality and worked well. The bathrooms were very high tech. Staff mainly excellent. Young engaging and professional. The guys at breakfast knew what they were doing and are a credit to the hotel. Location is great for shopping but is a 30 min walk from the old town/port. As we were on vacation, We spent a fair amount of time getting between the two. If going back, I might be tempted to find somewhere closer to the old town. Read less

A great historial building with lots to look at; well trained staff; and excellent food. Highly recommend a visit. Chef's tasting menu is worth the experience when available and a stop at the in-house bar before or after your meal is a good plan.

Booked a last minute trip trip with my wife to Montreal, Canada. Before getting to the review, I have to say the people of this city are incredibly friendly, making our trip that much more enjoyable. Now, onto the hotel.... As you may be able to surmise from my other reviews, my wife and I have stayed at some of the best hotels throughout the world. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. While the Hotel portrays itself as a luxury, 5 star property, it is not. We chose the hotel for what we thought would be a great location, with modern style. The exterior of the building is beautiful, an old, stately mansion, inconspicuously attached in the rear to a modern structure. Upon, closer inspection however, the red carpet on the entry steps are worn, and the building is in need of a good, old fashioned cleaning. Upon entering the building, the entryway is adorned with beautiful ornate carvings, with original wood floors, unfortunately they are covered by a path of industrial, gray carpet. I can only liken the experience to walking into a home, turned museum, where visitors are kept to a path so as not to wear down the property. Turning towards reception, you suddenly enter the Las Vegas Hilton. Glitzy and sparkly in all the wrong places, with modern crystals hanging from the ceiling, wall paper that appeared to made of corrugated card board paper and an LED screen, lit up directly behind the reception desk. The trip down the long hallway to our room added to the over all Vegas theme, with sparkly navy walls and cheetah inspired navy and gray carpeting. Our room, dubbed a suite, by reception, was spacious, modern, if not generic. A large rectangular room with oddly placed furnishings and a sink and small closet crammed into a corner. The bathroom, the best part of the room, was well lit, boasting a new fangled, electric toilet with all the niceties, and a chromotherapy shower. If you are visiting as a tourist and not in Montreal on business, many sites that make Montreal a charming unique city, are located in Old Montreal. While the hotel notes on its website it is perfectly located at the crossroads of old and new Montreal, it takes a 25 minute walk to reach the old city. There you will find a wonderful waterfront, art galleries, cafes and old world charm. In fairness, the hotel is located near the art museum, which was wonderful, and much of the shopping you can find in any modern city. This was a particularly hard review to write. On paper, and on line, the hotel appeared to have everything one would expect from a luxury property. Old world charm, modern amenities, a spa, (not much of one, merely two rooms located on the lower level for treatments), but something feels askew, a bit run down. If you visit Montreal and fancy being near the museums and shopping, stay uptown at the new Four Seasons, it's beautiful. If you really want the feel of what sets this city apart, stay in Old Montreal, where all of the action, and may great restaurants seem to be. Even the concierge suggested a visit to the new William Gray Hotel, in Old Montreal for " the best roof top bar in the city". That hotel appeared chic, hip and modern in every way a discerning traveller would expect, with an unbeatable location. In short, visit this wonderful, friendly city. I'd stay in old Montreal to soak in the unique history of the city. If you want Las Vegas, head to Nevada. Read less
