Bottom Line

The contemporary, three-and-a-half-pearl Courtyard by Marriott Montreal Downtown is a good choice for leisure and business travelers alike, situated only a block from the convention center and an easy walk to the subway station and Old Montreal. Its 210 rooms are spacious and clean with large, modern bathrooms. The rooftop indoor pool and fitness center are a big plus. But rates can be pricey on certain dates, and downtown Montreal has many comparable hotels from which to choose in equally convenient locations. Some, like the Embassy Suites by Hilton Montreal, could offer better rates so it might pay to compare before booking.

Oyster Hotel Review

Courtyard Montreal Downtown

Scene

Classy and comfortable property that's modern and business-oriented 

The Courtyard exudes class and comfort from the moment guests enter its contemporary, airy lobby that’s highlighted by an imposing, modern chandelier with illuminated rectangles hanging from the second floor. Tan marble floors and dark-wood paneling line the walls and frame three front desks. Clusters of comfortable upholstered chairs and couches with throw pillows frame glass tables and patterned rugs of brown and soft orange highlights. Other seating areas for quiet conversations are tucked away in the large lobby, including a secluded area around a gas fireplace. Bar stools line a long white table with laptop plug-ins, and computer stations with printers are nearby. Dark wood tables and walls and circular booths highlight a tastefully decorated restaurant. A small rectangular bar is tucked into the corner. On the top floor, meeting rooms have great views and ample natural light. The rooftop fitness and pool area gives another spot to take in great downtown views. Unsurprisingly, the property gets its fair share of business travelers, although couples are also drawn to its location and amenities.

Location

Central downtown location one block from the convention center, short walks to subway and Old Montreal

The Courtyard is centrally located in the downtown business district, surrounded by high-rise office buildings on a busy street. It's a seven-minute walk to the convention center and Place d’armes subway station and about an 11-minute walk to the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal. The heart of Old Montreal is about a 15-minute walk away, with its restaurants, shops, and 18th century buildings. The airport is 12 miles away, approximately 22 minutes by car or taxi and 30 minutes by public transportation.

Rooms

Spacious, clean and modern rooms with large work desks and free Wi-Fi

Continuing the hotel's modern, businesslike look, guest rooms are dominated by dark brown and tan decor in the furniture, patterned carpet, drapes, and accent walls. Dark-wood headboards are framed by lighter brown tile on accent walls behind the bed. Families praise the availability of Double Queen Rooms that can accommodate four. Those spacious rooms have a large desk with work space that can double in size thanks to a rolling second table tucked underneath. They're paired with ergonomic desk chairs. King Rooms offer additional space with a full couch and coffee table. All rooms offer mini-fridges, one-cup coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, free water and Wi-Fi, electronic safes, and speakerphones with voice mail. Tan-tiled, modern bathrooms are spacious and well lit with glass-walled showers, magnifying mirrors, and Paul Mitchell toiletries.
