How to Get There

Hotel Nelligan
106 Saint-Paul Street West
Montreal, H2Y 1Z3 Canada


Duped and disappointed by the room upgrade

My wife and I were told that we were being upgraded to a "petite suite" when we checked in. I had originally booked an inside-located room. The "petite suite" was located in the front of the hotel, directly above the main street outside.

Our room was extremely noisy. We could hear the people partying on the streets until 3 am.

I was extremely disappointed by our hotel room.

I feel duped.

Outstanding!! Can I give it 6 stars????

Of all the hotels I have ever stayed at in my life, this was probably the most enjoyable one from start to finish. And we were here for 6 nights, so it was no fluke.

It started with emails to their concierge weeks ahead asking questions and arranging things for this trip with my wife. They were very responsive to all my questions, including arranging for a personal driver to pick us up at the airport, and for another driver to take us to Quebec City at the end of our stay.

We were put into Room 203, which was perfect. It was near the elevator, and quiet. The chamber maids cleaned our room at least twice a day, leaving us bottled wqters and little chocolate candies!

The doormen were all gracious and quick to help. My wife needs to use a cane to get up and down stairs, And as soon as the doorman saw us coming he rushed to open the door, and help her up or down.

When I went down the first night to get some ice, I was told, just call the front desk and we will have ice brought to you. I will say I did that every day for our 6 days at Hotel Nelligan, and I never waited more than 3 minutes for the ice,

We simply had a marvelous time in a marvelous hotel, that was located in a marvelous section of Vieux Montreal. We were a block away from Notre Dame, a block away from the riverfront, and close to several great restaurants and dep cafe type places.

We te at their rooftop terrasse for lunch one day. It was very good - and very crowded. Seems like a lot of people come here.


I have been going often to Montreal for years. We usually stay in the McGill/Sherbrooke area. This was our first time trying the Nelligan although I have eaten there, gone to the bar and had friends/family stay there before.

The staff is super helpful and friendly. You feel right at home after checking in.

When we checked in the clerk knew that we had requested a bath and proceeded to tell us as gold reward members we had been given an upgrade to a suite and that they would be sending up a bottle of sparking wine to welcome us. What a great way to start a stay!

The room was LARGE, well appointed, dark with lots of brick and felt very original. The bed was amazingly comfortable, the pillows were perfect and the comforter was cozy. I slept beautifully. Loved thw view of the busy street and when I opened the windows I could hear the noise of a busy night

We were fortunate to be given a room on a WONDERFUL huge jacuzzi big enough for a family of 4! There was also a separate SHOWER.

There was a NESPRESSO coffee maker in the room. As a tea drinker I was not thrilled that there was no tea kettle for me : ( Free bottled water in the room. Lovely housekeeping department, front desk staff and valet.

I'd be happy to go back again!
