This hotel immerses guests in Montreal’s cosmopolitan vibe, with downtown views and a sophisticated sense of style defining this sleek stay on the corner of De Maisonneuve Boulevard and Rue Mansfield. Seventeen floors rise above a backdrop of sparkling city lights, with views of Mont Royal and the city’s top attractions — from Parc du Mont Royal and Vieux-Montréal to the Musée des Beaux-Arts — are minutes away. For couples and singles in town for a weekend, the hotel serves as a perfect base for exploring the city’s vibrant nightlife, luxury shopping and culture.
Bed & Bath
Minimalism meets comfort in each of the 123 guestrooms and suites. Dark furnishings tastefully balance the cream and white motif of the rooms, with pleasing design perks like graphic modern art and animal print blankets. Grand Luxe rooms have a separate bath and shower behind sliding doors. Le St-Martin stakes its name on its rooms’ views, guaranteeing you won’t spot a back alley during your stay. The windows on the lower floors open up to the bustling street, while the higher floors show off the city skyline and Mont Royal.
A highlight of staying here is dining at Bistro l’Aromate. Not only can guests taste inventive Mediterranean-inspired specialties, either on the main floor terrace or looking out through huge windows from the mezzanine, they can also sip cocktails at the chic bar, a cool nightspot in itself.
How to Get There
We have stayed here in the past, a beautiful hotel with comfortable beds, nicely decorated rooms and a cool outdoor (small) but neat pool. More expensive than many of the nearby hotels but worth the extra
The welcome at reception was no better than average with no information about breakfast etc and was definitely not warm and welcoming. Room pleasant and clean. No movies on the tv. 2 Nespresso pods, no tea , no complementary water, no easily accessible electric sockets. Bathroom excellent. Compare this with other boutique hotels in this price range. Pool is more of a water feature. Location excellent. Room was quiet. Overall we were happy. But they could easily do better and there are some better places nearby. With some minor changes this hotel would be a gem... But not yet
The room was nice, the location was good for me. it is also near a metro stop and McGill University. I don't recommend the breakfast in the hotel, as it is quite mediocre. Drying eggs, Sausage, perked coffee from a pot, serve yourself, and chopped fruit in sugar water. Fixed breakfast price advertised as $20, but about $27 after taxes and mandatory service fee. Also, the hotel required that I post a credit to the full amount of the hotel stay, despite the fact that the room was being direct billed to my host's corporate account. Breakfast bill had not arrived when I came to check out, so they just sent me away without clearing the credit charge. I suppose they have had people leave without paying, but I don't like hotels that treat you like a criminal, then expect you to trust them with your money.
When we arrived at the hotel the check-in was great. The room was lovely and we were very happy. Subsequent to that things went rapidly downhill. The morning of our first day we needed to get help on what to see in Montreal. I stood by the concierge for minutes whilst the guy did not even acknowledge me. I moved from him to the reception to be told by the receptionist that she was a bit busy with her paperwork and could I could back later. There was nobody else around so I have no idea why she was so busy. Eventually I did extract help from her but it was done with great reluctance and made me feel bad. On another occasion when we went to reception the same girl ignored us to talk to a member of staff, but the other person corrected her by pointing to us as guests waiting to be served. The worst bit was that they held $CAN 450 from us per room (150 x3 for 3 nights day) as a deposit, and never released the money after we checked out. Despite many calls and emails over the holiday (we had moved on to Toronto) the only way we could get our money back was to complain to the General manager. This was 5 days later, by which time my traveller debit card was empty so I had to top it up again. They were so unhelpful. I would not recommend this place at all. There are many hotels in Montreal, try a different one. BTW Montreal is a great place.
This hotel is completely nice. It's not amazing, but it delivers all the essentials. There was a fireplace in the room that we did not use. The bathroom was good but the water pressure in the shower was quite low -- something I have experienced elsewhere in Montreal. The location is good if you want to be near McGill and the bottom of the mountain. Everything was tidy and clean and the room was average size.
