This 26-story property attracts plenty of business travelers, thanks to its location next to the Montreal Convention Center, but it’s a great bet for tourists, too, as Old Montreal is only a stone’s throw away. The contemporary guestrooms feature large windows overlooking the city, work desks and marble bathrooms stocked with Agraria bath products. Work up an appetite with a trip to the hotel’s fitness club, which includes a saltwater lap pool, then head to the Osco! brasserie for dishes like lobster bouillabaisse. Afterward, make your way to the bar, Sarah B., for handcrafted absinthe cocktails delivered to cozy banquettes warmed by a crackling fire.
In the Area
The hotel concierge recommends a morning visit to Bota Bota, a spa housed within a converted ship on the Saint Lawrence River that offers an extensive Nordic Bath designed to eliminate toxins and release stress. Spend the afternoon exploring Old Montreal, where horse-drawn carriages still travel down narrow cobblestone streets. Two must-sees: the Basilique Notre-Dame and the Marché Bonsecours, where visitors can shop for artisanal crafts and dine at Café des Arts, overlooking the Old Port.
How to Get There
We booked this hotel after our booking at the Marriott fell through. I was very happy it did this was a great last minute choice. The hotel facilities and rooms were excellent and it’s in a great location. Great view from my room.
Also glad we opted for breakfast as this was also really good plenty off choice as it’s buffet style. The bar is also worth a visit not overly priced.
I will stay again if I return to Montreal.
We held our year end corporate party at the Intercontinental, December 2018. Our theme was 1920's and the room called ``Les voûtes`` was where it was held. it was absolutely perfect. From cocktails, where everyone had to give me the password to access the cocktail room through a giant door, to the 4 course delicious dinner. We also hired a murder mystery theater group who had previously worked that room and were aware of the space and how to use it. Sandra is the representative who took care of our event and from booking to the actual event - she's was absolutely FABULOUS. I do not see how anyone could regret holding their event at the Intercontinental!
I held an event at this hotel, and my every need was catered to. All facilities were first class, the staff was beyond amazing and there were no issues. I will use this hotel again and again when I am in Montreal - this was one of the best meeting experiences that I have ever had.
As a Gold Ambassador of IHG / Intercontinental i visit many hotels. This Intercontinental located in Montreal is not meet the standards of the chain therefore is not have any
added value for the money.... at the reception the service was always slow due to few employees over there. the special desk for Ambassador was always empty. Breakfast was less than average regarding the variety or the quality of what they offer - looks more
like Motel Breakfast. Omelette station always not opened in time . nothing to compare to others Intercontinental hotels! also the GIm is not meeting the standards. very small and only 2 treadmills - I was very disjointed and i will sure take others offers next visit in Montreal
-Great location with many options within walking distance.
-Friendly front desk staff.
-Comfortable bed and clean room.
Could be better:
-Hotel is nice but starting to show its age. In need of updates in rooms.
-Fridge in room makes odd noises. Didn’t hear it till it woke me up in middle of night.
-$30 breakfast with reduced price to $21 if you get voucher from front desk. That’s solid motivation to eat breakfast elsewhere.
