I travelled to Montreal for a girls' weekend and the W Montreal was great for that. It's a hotel with a very slick, sophisticated appearance and sleek, sophisticated staff to match. You step through the door into a high-tech atmosphere that is a bit disorienting - am I Montreal? Singapore? Tokyo? The Centre of the Earth? Wherever I am, they have great food and drinks, so it's okay.
Surprisingly, they charge a fee for internet in your room. You an get free access in the lobby, but I am surprised when I encounter a hotel that doesn't include it in the room. Especially when the hotel looks as technophilic as this one.
A very convenient location for people who want to go shopping or check out local sightseeing (including the jazz festival). The hotel has an elevator that will take you right to the subway concourse. The gym is quite nice.
Much is said about hotel rooms that are open-concept so your roommates keep you company while you shower (thankfully, not while you use the toilet!). We had to get an accessible room because one of us had an injury and our room was very well set up for someone who had a mobility impairment and seemed well laid out for manoeuvring with a wheelchair. The shower was private and had a device that allowed the injured person to sit while showering. No bathtub.
I would highly recommend W Montreal for an adults-only trip. Its very dark in the hallways in rooms, so if you have a visual impairment, or if you are hoping to do work in your hotel room, you may want to find a place with better lighting or windows that don't look into a neighbouring office building.
There's a spa but it was completely booked, so I didn't get to try it out.
