“Great location, hotel was meh.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We were in Montreal for the Osheaga music festival, and with this hotel a 2 minute walk from the Beri-Uqam metro station, it was a fantastic location to get to the parc every day. We arrived early on Friday but there was already no parking left in the lot so had to park in the lot next door. I wouldn't recommend if you can find other parking, as they had to keep my keys all weekend to keep moving my vehicle, and the attendant gave me a hard time when I told him I had pre-paid til Sunday night, and I had to argue with him for 5 minutes.
I ate breakast at the hotel restaurant on Sunday morning. The toast was dry (not buttered) and the sausages were not good at all, so I wouldn't recommend the food.
The staff was friendly, but there was a funky smell in our room from the fridge, and the air conditioning wasn't the best.
So the location was great, but the rest of the hotel was only so-so.

It's not the most fancy but since we were only looking for a good location, clean and comfortable to use as a home base, the Lord Berri certainly was all that. Situated near a Metro station and transit, getting anywhere only takes minutes. We never used our vehicle once in three days! Walking to The Village, Old Montreal, Chinatown and strolling down Saint Catherine is not a problem. Much to see and do. The hotel room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Air conditioner filter needed to be changed though. Underground secure parking is limited so book ahead.

Room Tip: Very quiet with a room on back of hotel (but no view)

The Hotel Lord Berri is a so-so place. We checked in and had our room switched to another even before we could get back from the parking lot next door to the hotel. While the room was relatively clean, it was also a bit musty.

DO NOT PARK IN THE PARKING LOT NEXT TO THE HOTEL! The hotel parking was full and we foolishly parked at the lot next to the building. Even though there was a full-time attendant, when we came down the next morning we found the right rear window of our car smashed to bits. Nothing was taken by the vandal. This, and the effort required to have the window replaced in an unfamiliar city, pretty much spoiled our visit to Montreal.

Will not be returning.

I've stayed at this hotel at least a 1/2 dozen times over the years and never had any issues. The parking is limited so I just park at Place Dupuis which is right around the corner. The rooms are "institutional" but everything works fine and the bar / restaurant in the lobby is a gem. It's a great place for breakfast and also for a night cap at the end of the day. It's popular with hotel guests and locals so it was nice to chat and mingle etc.

It's pretty much my "go to" hotel in Montreal.

We stayed here during the Montreal grand prix with a group of 40 other people, and even though the hotel was full nothing seemed like to much trouble. There was never a long wait for service at the reception desk or at breakfast.
You would have thought that the prices would have been increased for that weekend, but we thought they were very reasonable.
Location is also brilliant if you don't have a car, if you do there is parking but there is a parking car. The metro is down the road and runs pretty late, but a lot of places are in walking distance anyway.

The staff were all fluent in French and English and were happy to talk to you in either language. The reception desk were very helpful when asked for advice on places to go for dinner or directs to attractions.

The room was a good size, and clean. Sounds strange, but the housekeeping were brilliant as they cleaned our room without disturbing any of our various bits we had laid out around the room.

Breakfast was also very good, for the grand prix weekend the hotel offered an 'American style breakfast'. I don't eat meat and the kitchen were happy to put together something for me, and then remembered so I didn't need to ask for a vegetarian option every day.

This hotel looks to be a very good choice for who is traveling by bus, since it's one block away from the main Montreal bus terminal in Rue Berri.

My room was quite big and has everything I could need: refrigerator, coffee machine, tv (of couse) and a quite big bedroom.

Staff was quite helpful too, helping me and finding me a room since I booked mine with wrong dates.

Was a good stay, even if for only one night.

The front desk are nasty, seem like they dont really want to help us or answer to any of our question. We ask to book another room and she told us it would be 109 with tax. Which is the same price as the room we already booked. The next day we went to check out. It was 124. Okay fine. Then the night we went to check in and i ask the lady if i can have the room closer she said with the big "No"with the nasty attitude. If this have no star i would give them no star. And both room we book have this nasty smell. If we got to montreal earlier i would have ask for refund and go for a another hotel. Whats is the piont of paying for a hotel and u have to clean the bathroom your self. Also doesnt the manager ever care about customer services? I would never come here ever again and i wont suggest anyone to come here.
