Located in a glass tower in the historic Golden Square Mile district, the Sofitel Montreal has serious modern style, true French flavor and excellent downtown views. The rooms may not be large (Superior Rooms are just 240 square feet), but what the hotel lacks in space it makes up for with a comfortable and sleek approach. Each room has floor-to-ceiling windows, rich wood paneling, large closets, goose featherbeds and pillows, and marble bathrooms with rainfall showerheads and L’Occitane products. The on-site Restaurant Renoir has a sunny, open atmosphere and serves classic French dishes, which you can enjoy alfresco on the outdoor terrace during the summer months. With its oh-so-chic urban decor and somewhat corporate vibe, this hotel is slightly more formal than a casual guest may prefer. The staff is more business than play, but you’ll still find the Sofitel an excellent home base for exploring everything Montreal has to offer.
In the Area
Check out the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montreal, Canada’s oldest museum, housing lots of Quebecois art, Mediterranean archaeology, decorative arts and European masterworks (including handsome Picassos, Rembrandts and El Grecos). Those looking to stay active should visit the century-old Parc La Fontaine, which offers bike trails and jogging paths (you can even cross-country ski or snowshoe in the winter); it also has waterfalls, fountains, playing fields, tennis courts and an open-air theater. Want to get in touch with nature? Head to the Biodome de Montreal, which has walk-through recreations of a tropical rain forest (complete with monkeys dangling overhead), a Laurentian forest, the St. Lawrence marine system and a polar environment. When you’re ready to flex that plastic, take a stroll down Rue Ste-Catherine to peruse the stylish department stores and luxury boutiques; head to Rue Sherbrooke for international and Canadian fashion boutiques and galleries.
How to Get There
Having stayed at the Sofitel in Chicago several times, I thought it was reasonable to expect good things from the Montreal version. I was not disappointed. This was a 3 day sightseeing trip for
husband and wife and hotel was well located near the downtown and river attractions, alhough
Montreal is a large spread out city and long walks/taxi rides are unavoidable. Staff very helpful and rooms were modern and clean.
They changed the control so that it is not possible to change the temperature in the room. I need to speak to the front desk and then they told me that they closed the drapes to keep the air cooler. Not so good.
Stayed here for the second time in June 2018 and for the second time it was excellent.
Rooms are extremely comfortable. Location is very central. The food at both breakfast and dinner was also of very high quality.
I would happily stay here again.
Fabulous for a weekend getaway. Comfortable quiet rooms, friendly helpful staff. Lovely view of Mont Royal. Only thing I would have done differently was to request hypoallergenic bedding - which I could have done through the website.
Not my first stay at this hotel, and will definitely come back.
Hotel and rooms are clean, nice, more than comfortable (I need wheel-chair accessible rooms), staff was extremely nice, always ready to help or do anything.
