Very nice hotel and excellent serviceComment of J. Soeren Leon Metz , Denmark the 2016-08-20
"Location location location "
If your in town to catch a game or a show it's really the place to be, great location and very walkable from there! The only flaw is it a 50 year old building and its starting to show, service and staff great but building can use a little love, great price point for our stay.
"Great location, price, and building"
The location is fantastic. You can get on the subway without ever going outside. It's a short subway ride to all of Montreal's top destinations. The building itself is well maintained, rooms were clean but in need of some upgrades due to age. Staff were friendly and helpful, the concierge in the lobby can help make any arrangements. Price was comparable to other hotels in the area.
"Good but needs improvement"
As others have said the hotel is centrally located. It is a big advantage being directly above the Bonaventure station. As a Rewards member I travel a lot and stay almost exclusively at Marriott Hotels. The Chateau Champlain has one of the more friendly front desk, housekeeping, and concierge lounge staff. The fitness center is typical for a large hotel. I guess my main complaint is the concierge lounge. I have stayed at dozens of Marriott hotels and this has one of the smaller lounges. It is also the ONLY one that doesn't serve cooked eggs. Very strange and quite disappointing. A few years ago they stopped serving smoked salmon at breakfast. Wish they would bring that back. Oh well.. Hopefully someone is reading this review and will take some action.
"A poor rating because of price"
Stayed Feb 18th - 20th. It was a last minute surprise trip to my husband for our wedding anniversary. The hotel itself is nice, rooms a little small but they have floor to ceiling window which was the saving grace....making the room seem larger. The best thing, as others have mentioned, is the location being so close to the train station (which is how we arrived and why I booked it) as well there is a metro stop accessible right through the hotel. So very convenient!! That's really all though. We have stayed at other Marriotts and are a reward member....other lesser ones like the courtyard Marriott made us feel more welcome and "special" I know it's a large hotel but for the high price they could do a little more. It's the little things that make a difference and are what makes me loyal to a brand. I looked forward to this hotel but was disappointed. I did book directly on their site...for the best rate...but I'm thinking because it was last minute is the reason for the extremely high price. There are so many fabulous places to stay in Montreal that you don't have to settle for just okay. I'm sad to say this Marriott did not make a good impression on me and I would not go back...even for the convenience! Now if you can find it for a better price (like under $200 Canadian a night...) maybe you could give it a try but really they would have to do a lot more to win my business back in the future.
"Perfect location with the property forgoing improvements out of architectural integrity"
That's a long review title, but it's true. The property was designed by a Frank Lloyd Wright protege to coincide with Expo 67. We loved the historical details like the big, curved windows in each room (drafty as they were). The room bathroom and closet layout was a little odd too, but the centre ice location (no pun intended with the Bell Centre nearby) and very friendly staff made up for any deficiencies. Word of warning though: if you have a big vehicle, you may find the underground parking tight.
