This chic 101-room boutique remains one of Montreal’s most cherished stays because of its intimate vibe, attention to detail and staffs’ passion for sharing the city’s best with guests. Loft-like digs radiate Zen vibes, with furniture designed and crafted in Quebec and dark woods set against earthy creams, silvers and whites. The requisite technology is all here too: flat-screen TVs, iPod/iPhone docks and wide working desks with plenty of outlets. Glass-enclosed showers provide a bit of a tease, but keep it classy with a shower shade if you’re so inclined. On-site restaurant Laurie Raphaël Montréal is the sibling of the same-named Quebec City mainstay, but it more than holds its own with wonderfully authentic Quebecois fair served in a seventh-floor dining room with sparkling city views.
In the Area
Take a stroll down Rue Ste-Catherine, right outside the hotel’s door, to shop in Montreal’s most stylish luxury boutiques. Take in a concert amidst archangels and apostles in Bourgie Hall, a 107-year-old church that opened as a performance space in October 2012. Then move on to dinner at Martin Picard’s cult eatery Au Pied De Cochon (“the pigs foot”), a carnivore favorite where even the French fries come topped with foie gras. The century-old Parc La Fontaine is rife with bike trails, jogging paths and ski and snowshoe routes in winter. Waterfalls, fountains, playing fields, tennis courts and an open-air theater are sprinkled throughout.
How to Get There
Check-in and Check-out in a minute. The bathroom set was complete. I reserved two rooms and the rooms were near each other. Just the breakfast needs to be improved because it's very basic and underneath to the general Hotel value.
Not my first trip to Montreal but decided to chose a hotel afresh looking at ratings vs price. Choosing a boutique hotel can be risky but the location of Le Germain was great, price reasonable and ratings good. I was not disappointed. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful including those assisting with the free included breakfast - pretty modest offering but adequate. Room was well appointed and comfortable - good bathroom (no bath). Will opt for Le Germain again.
Le Germain is a great boutique hotel very centrally located. Rooms are well appointed but the key to its success is the team of staff who work there. Everyone is very friendly and service minded from the doormen and breakfast staff to the concierge. Well worth the visit.
I have travelled across Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec over a two week period and this was by far the best hotel! The room was lovely and the breakfast whilst limited compared to other hotels (i.e. The King Edward in Toronto) was enjoyable. The Molton Brown in the room was an excellent touch that both my wife and I appreciated. The attention to deal throughout the room was notable and as such get our top rating for Canada.
this is rated as a four star hotel but it should be a 5 star , the staff is unbelievably helpful and nice , the rooms are clean and spacious , the hotel is centrally located , this is a real gem in Montreal . I am so impressed by the level of service , I will go back for sure , the breakfast is good and the spread is very well presented.
