Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location in Old Montreal
  • 24-hour concierge, a member of the renowned Clef d'Or organization
  • Charming details like exposed brick
  • Sleek, modern bathrooms with plush robes
  • Free morning shuttle to downtown Montreal
  • Lovely rooftop terrace restaurant and the chic Suite 701 lounge
  • Excellent farm-to-table Quebec fare at Aix Cuisine du Terroir
  • Spa with hammam and numerous paramedical aesthetic treatments

Cons

  • Many rooms have tube TVs
  • Pricey parking (typical for Old Montreal)

Bottom Line

This 133-room boutique, located in a historic building in Old Montreal, blends contemporary design with old-world charm. The large lobby, with a pool table and modern leather seating, is stylish yet cozy. The rooms follow suit, with crisp white bedding, hardwood floors, and upscale bathrooms; some have extras like exposed brick and big soaking tubs. There are a few flaws, though -- outdated tube TVs in many rooms, some visible nicks and scratches on the wood furniture, and some rooms with tight quarters. But perks like free Wi-Fi, a free downtown shuttle, and an excellent Clef d'Or concierge add value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Old Montreal

Old Montreal is home to the city's largest concentration of historic sites and museums, and is lined with pedestrian-friendly cobblestone streets.

With a history dating back to 1642, Old Montreal is, well, old. This well-preserved neighborhood might be one of the prettiest and most fascinating quarters of the city. While summers give way to lively street festivals and restaurant terraces brimming with energy, winters offer a much more mellow and relaxed pace.
