We stayed here in 2011 and previously in 2009; each time for 2 or 3 nights. Both stays were great experiences.
To start , this is a beautiful old building loaded with great modern artwork.......Warhol , Frank Stella; too many to mention....every floor. Location , right at the old city and a short walk to the metro.
The rooms are incredible.....12 ft ( ?) windows, the furnishings are top quality. Immaculately clean. On our second visit, when we arrived , they asked us to move to another room, which was an upgrade at no extra charge. An hour later, they apologized and asked us to move back to the original room....knocked about $25 off the price and also through in breakfast for every morning we were there.....a $12 charge normally per person. They also offered staff to come to our room and repack our bags for us.
Everyone who works here is extremely friendly, competent and helpful.
We wanted to get a reservation at Au Pied de Cochon, which ,on the short notice for a Fri night seemed unlikely. But the concierge called and then asked " Would you mind sitting at the bar ? " Me, " Oh, you mean where Anthony Bourdain sat when he filmed his program there ?.......well, OK "
The breakfasts at L'Hotel are really good. the chocolate croissants are cooked here and you can smell them and the coffee as you enter the very cool breakfast room.
We were traveling with our good road bikes , so they offered to lock them in their vault.....this building was a bank at one time. they also helped load and unload them from our roof rack.
Everything about the place is great.
We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Montreal. Worth every penny.
I can't come up with any negatives at all.
