My partner and I were in town to see U2 in concert. I knew the trip would cost a little bit of money so I took a chance and used Priceline.com for the first time in my life and put in a $100 bid. The Chateau Versailles accepted and for weeks, I was agonizing over the decision: will it be close enough to downtown? Will we be away from all the action?
We were both astounded at the location- you are only minutes away from Crescent Street and St. Catherine, the two streets that are notorious if you want to have a good time...and trust me they live up to their reputation. You are also a 2 minute walk from the Guy-Concordia Metro as well. Yes, you do have to pay for parking- but we didn't use the hotel parking lot, instead we used the parking lot just up the street from the Hotel (it's across from the Regency and overlooks a football field) and we only paid $12 a night. I thought it was a great and safe parking lot- I drive a 2006 Toyota Rav4 and the car was just as good as I left it.
We stayed in Room 122 where we received a standard bed which was comfortable enough for two people to sleep in. The whole hotel has a very romantic atmosphere which makes the stay very enjoyable. Let's just say this: it's the only hotel I've stayed in that provided an intimacy kit. We were right next to the exercise room and saunas but we were so busy with our weekend that we did not get a chance to use it. As a young couple who likes to have a good night out, we arrived during the last 20 minutes of the free continental breakfast and were still served well. You will find cottage cheese, yogurt, croissants, chocolate croissants, cereal, granola, assorted cheeses (including my favorite- brie!), cold cuts, bread, wonderful fruit juices, and very fresh fruit- my partner and I take our fruit very seriously (we're dorks) and those had to be some of the best apples I've tasted. The coffee isn't that bad either!
Now- I've got to say- the staff was incredible. Stephanie made us feel so welcome and was full of suggestions about where to go out in the city. Anytime we needed help with anything- places to see in the city, any question with our room- they were so quick to help us. They even let us use the fire exit when we checked out so we could easily take our bikes back to our car! We enjoyed the city of Montreal so much that even hours after we checked out and realized we forgot to print out directions back home (word to the wise: Verizon will charge you like crazy if you attempt to use your smartphone data plan outside the US, so you can't rely on your GoogleMaps app), Stephanie let us go back into the hotel's computer lab so we could print out directions back home.
I've got to say- I don't know when I will be back in Montreal (I hope it's soon though!) but I would definitely stay in the Chateau Versailles again. Great location, great food, and great staff- you simply cannot beat it if you're looking for a boutique hotel.
