Bottom Line

The upscale Hotel Le Germain Montreal is a four-pearl, 101-room property with sophisticated, modern decor and a business-friendly vibe. The hotel is located in downtown Montreal, right across from McGill University and within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, and public transportation. Guest rooms feature simple but stylish modern decor, goose-down bedding, Nespresso coffeemakers, minibars, and Tivoli sound systems. The hotel has a bar and gourmet restaurant, which serves up a free daily breakfast buffet. Free espresso is available in the lobby, and room service is offered during limited hours. The hotel's 24-hour fitness center is small but functional, but there's no pool and spa services are only offered in-room. The Omni Mont-Royal Hotel, which is just a block away, offers a large, seasonal outdoor pool, extensive fitness facilities, and an on-site spa, but Wi-Fi and breakfast cost extra.

Hôtel Le Germain Montréal

Scene

Sophisticated business hotel with stylish, modern decor 

Housed in what was once an office building, the 13-story Hotel Le Germain Montreal has a concrete-and-glass facade. Inside, the lobby is sophisticated, modern, and spacious, and natural light from the front windows contrast with dark-wood accents. A large modern art  piece hangs near the reception desk, and there's a leathery brown tufted couch and upholstered chairs around a round rug in front of a huge fireplace. Other intimate seating areas are dotted through out the lobby, and a 24-hour espresso machine offers a free caffeine fix for weary travelers. The gourmet Le Laurie Raphael restaurant and bar are situated at mezzanine level and feature wood accents, a painted ceiling, and "floating" pendant art. The hotel attracts an upscale business crowd as well as leisure travelers and visitors of McGill University, which is conveniently located right across the street.

Location

In downtown Montreal across from McGill University

The Hotel Le Germain Montreal is located in Montreal's Golden Square Mile and occupies a central spot directly off the main road that runs parallel to McGill University. The popular Saint Catherine shopping street is just a three-minute walk away and Crescent Street, known for its restaurants and pubs, is eight minutes away on foot. The location is also in easy walking distance to Montreal's downtown business center. For sightseers, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is a nine-minute walk, while the Quartier des Spectacles entertainment district and Mount Royal Park are each about a 20-minute walk. Old Montreal isn't really in walking distance, though guests can get there in about 10 minutes by car or 25 minutes via public transportation. 

There's a bus stop at the end of the street, and the closest metro stations (Station Peel and Station McGill, both on the Green Line) are about a four-minute walk from the hotel. Attractions such as the Montreal Convention Centre, Parc Lafontaine, and the Olympic Stadium are a straight shot on the metro, 20- to 25-minutes away. The Montreal train station is a 10-minute walk from the hotel, and the Montreal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport is 20 minutes by car or 35 minutes via public transportation. Guests coming by car can find indoor valet parking at the hotel, for a daily fee.

Rooms

Chic, modern rooms with Nespresso coffeemakers, Tivoli sound systems, and minibars

Rooms at the Hotel Le Germain Montreal have simple but sophisticated, modern upscale decor. Dark wall-to-wall carpeting meets white walls while, dark-brown wood accents add a homey feel. Angular pendant and sconce lights create a warm glow, but most of the room's light comes from the large windows along one wall. Rooms have individually controlled air-conditioning and beds have Egyptian cotton sheets, goose-down duvets, and feather pillows. Though there have been occasional complaints about noise, most guests find the rooms quiet. 

Even base-category rooms are thoughtfully laid out, with wall-mounted desks and ergonomic chairs, small sitting areas, and wardrobes with safes and fold-out ironing boards. Each room has a flat-screen TV (42-inch minimum), a Tivoli audio system, a minibar, and a Nespresso coffeemaker. Hypo-allergenic bedding, humidifiers, daily newspapers, cribs, and pet beds are available on request. The largest unit in the hotel is the extravagant Apartment Suite, which has a living room and fireplace, a full kitchen, and a washer and dryer, among other extras.

Bathrooms in all of the units are spacious, with brown tiling, wooden vanities, and large walk-in showers with transparent glass walls (and blinds on the bedroom-facing glass). Bathrooms include cotton bathrobes, magnifying mirrors, and hairdryers, along with Molton Brown toiletries.

Features

Gourmet restaurant with free breakfast buffet and 24-hour fitness area, but no pool or spa

Hotel Le Germain doesn't check every box for an upscale hotel, but it does offer some nice on-site features, particularly when it comes to dining. The on-site Le Laurie Raphael restaurant offers modern takes on traditional dishes, though servings are small and items are pricey. However, the daily buffet breakfast is free to hotel guests and offers a satisfying selection of fresh fruit, cereal, baked goods, and eggs. Quality tea and espresso are also available 24/7, and room service is offered in the mornings and evenings.

The hotel has several small meeting rooms and can help organize events. Babysitting, dry cleaning and laundry, and car services can also be arranged. Indoor valet parking is available for a fee, while Wi-Fi is free throughout the property. The 24-hour fitness center is clean and modern -- though not exceptional -- with cardio and weightlifting equipment, free weights, and exercise mats. There's no on-site pool or spa, though in-room spa treatments and massages can be booked through the concierge. Pets are allowed, for a fee.
