Best Western Ville-Marie Montreal Hotel & Suites
Ranked #35 of 165 Hotels in Montreal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 April 2012

This hotel bills itself as a 'luxury 4 star hotel' but in reality it's a low-end BW with a few frills which gives it the 4 star rating. The rooms of a 2 star quality at best.

I stayed in room 1806, which was somewhat decaying. Peeling wallpaper, UGLY bathroom, hot water that took several minutes to get to an acceptable temperature and not enough electrical outlets. On a positive note, the bed was comfortable and the view from the window was good. The room was also cleaned to a satisfactory level though by no means was it 'sterile' like most other 4 star hotels.

Only 1 elevator serves floors 16-20 and although it's faster and larger than the other 2 it sometimes took a while to get up there.

Overall, I'm not sure I would return until the rooms have been renovated.

Stayed: April 2012

This downtown hotel right next to McGill University is close to everything, St Catherine, Museum of Art (free but opens late at 11am), Parc Royal. If you want your stay to be within walking distances of all of that, this is the hotel for you. Valet parking at $25 a night is standard for city hotels. Free wifi is a plus. Cleaning service is so so. It's a no frill hotel. We asked for a higher floor room and got 12th. Not noisy but the heating is very old so even if it's turned off, the room is still unbearably warm. Rooms could use a facelift. I noticed a lot of business travelers there too.

Location, fantastic. Room, simple but nice. Wi-fi, useless. Hot water situation at night, iffy. I would have graded this hotel as good between average and very good if that was a rating option. If you are in Montreal for shopping, concert, or sightseeing, this is an affordable option. Not for business traveller because I was unable to do any work with the Wi-Fi.

The hotel is very well located in the city of Montreal directly below the Mont Royal. We stayed for two nights at the beginning of April 2012. We arrived by taxi directly from the Montreal airport and the service at the reception desk was very friendly. Our room was a king size bed room located at the 10th floor. The room was quite and on the backside of the hotel. The cleanness was okay but could be better. Some old hairs in the bathroom as well as old carpet and old curtain have shown the age of the hotel. So in total the hotel is an old hotel what could and should be updated in the next year(s).
What we really can recommend its the location of the hotel. You can do all downtown sightseeings without a car. The hotel is so well located that all interesting points are in a walking distance.
So we would recommend the hotel for a short stay in the centre of Montreal if you don't expect a 4**** or 5***** service. The hotel offers a good 3*** standard.

This hotel is great for people who are in Montreal to have fun and go out to bars because it is located downtown, not too far from the action.

If you're looking for a quiet hotel for a weekend, I do not recommend you stay here because this is where people stay when they come to party in Montreal. There's noise in the halls around 11pm before the partyers go out and then more noise again when they get back at around 4-5am.

The hotel is decent, very well kept. It obviously does not have higher quality finishes and the rooms are a bit dated. Good value hotel if you don't plan on sleeping much.
