Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

Hmmm... Not the best Hilton I've stayed in. This place has a real 70s feel to it, and the huge Bonaventure Centre it's attached to is a real Soviet-style concrete thing.

There's also lots of concrete inside the hotel, which is pretty gloomy in general. The layout is confusing and unattractive, and just working out where the lobby is gets a bit strange. Prepare to have to carry your luggage up and down stairs to you room.

Staff are not the most friendly I've encountered, and check-in/out is very slow. Too few staff on reception.

Breakfast was good, but there was never anyone at the "wait here to be seated" sign and I was left hanging around each morning.

Room was OK but nothing special. Nice and clean. Hot water for shower takes forever to come through.

Overall, an underwhelming experience. Expensive hotel for what it is.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled on business

Thank you for your review. Designed in the Brutalist style, the exterior walls of our building are poured-in-place, ribbed sand-blasted concrete, with the interior walls sand-blasted concrete or brick. The complex houses our unique 395 room rooftop hotel, Hilton Bonaventure, featuring a 2.5 acres outdoor garden with trees, flowers and waterfalls. Over a dozen of ducks and many koi fish use our lovely ponds. Our rooms also have windows that can be opened for some fresh air.

We hope that we will have the opportunity to provide you with a much better experience on your next visit!

Its on a plaza and not its own entity. Parking is a night mare underground and so you have to use valet. If you park in underground parking lot you have to use 3 elevators to get to your room and loose 10 lbs. So you have to pay $5.00 every time u need your car . poor sighns to direct you to Valet parking lot and most people end up parking underground. Once your there you have to pay to get back to valet parking.

Nice hotel...8 nights maybe too long for 2 kids and a small hotel room. If have kids, recommend a room right near the pool. Great location with everything in walking distance or even a cab. Had breakfast at the restaurant every morning. Very good spread.

Room Tip: Walls were kind of thin...could hear voices in the next room over.

There was an attitude with the staff at this location. Though location was good for us. It seemed very dull & dark all over the hotel. Too much cement structure.Good protection for noise but Lacked colorfullness / brightness

Had to pay for wifi, $11.00 for a beer,2.00 for a coffee. Noisy fan in heating/ac system in room. Nickel and dimed to death. 1.50 charge for room to room. no robes for pool. No help with luggage on arrival. Doorman not helpful unless you ask. Beggars everywhere in Montreal unreal worst city ever visited for this.

Thank you for your review. I am truly surprised to read that you had to pay for Wifi and for a room-to-room (call?) as they are both complimentary. We have been offering free Wifi and wired internet in our guestrooms for the past 2 to 3 years. Wifi is also available at no cost in our lobby. On top of that, the computers in the business center are at your disposal also.

I will follow-up on your comment about the lack of proactiveness from our doorman.

We hope to see you again soon!I

Check in and check out, slow. I still think when you book online hotels should have a quick check in! Room clean. Not extra clean. The shower walls were not clean, they needed a scrub. There was some yorky yellow dry spot left unattended! The remaining room clean. Bed comfy. room 3415 has a nice view on the CN parking lot. It was quiet. Except in he corridor, my 12 yrs old made a big fun of some weird noise we heard coming from rooms! But we had a nice quiet night. Cold room. And difficult to adjust. It was getting cold set at 21C 74F then I raised it in the middle of the night at 23C 78F it got really hot so I dropped it down at 21C and it was freezing under the blankets, draft coming from the window. But the bed is comfy. Its a convenient location for business at Place Bonaventure or to walk to Ste-Catherine and around. Heated pool we didn't use but looked inviting. There is a nice bar downstairs also inviting with great finger food.

The garden and the pool are amazing. The location is also perfect and connects direct to the train station. Also near commerce and downtown. This hotel is not only family friendly but also dog friendly!
