Bottom Line

Located between Old Montreal and downtown, Le Westin Montreal, an upscale, 455-room property, is a great choice for business travelers and tourists -- the Palais des Congres is across the street, and Notre-Dame de Basilica is within a five-minute walk. Rooms range from Traditional King/Queen doubles to Presidential Suites, and include the signature Westin Heavenly Beds with 300-count bed sheets, iHome radios with iPod docks, mini-fridges, free Wi-Fi, and Starbucks coffee for in-room coffeemakers. Le Westin Montreal also has a spacious fitness center with a full range of cardio- and weight-lifting equipment, a glass-bottom indoor pool, and ample event space that includes a terrace with skyline views. Rooms, however, have the streamlined corporate feel of a chain hotel, albeit a high-end one. Guests seeking a quirkier boutique-style vibe might want to check out the Auberge du Vieux-Port, but rates can be higher.

Scene

Classy and modern, with lots of space and artistic touches

Le Westin Montreal is a sleek, modern property with 23 floors and a location between the old and new city: Old Montreal is directly behind the hotel, while the front doors open onto the downtown area. Neon-blue-and-purple lighting accent the charcoal-gray facade at night, a hint of the contemporary, arty decor to be found inside. An eye-catching, snowflake-like sculpture hangs from the lobby's ceiling, and modern abstract art in bright rainbow colors and soothing grays align the dark-wood-paneled walls. There's a lovely, soaring atrium space near the elevator bank, and a business-style seating area done in browns, dark grays, and beiges. The Gazette restaurant is a more stylish space, with a trendy, vaguely-Scandinavian aesthetic replete with light-wood paneling and subtle neon-pink lighting. Guests include a mix of business travelers and tourists seeking sophistication, chain-hotel comfort and amenities, and easy access to tourist sights and the business district. 

Location

Bridges Old Montreal and downtown

With front doors opening onto the bustling, modern downtown and the back of the property leading to the quaint shops and restaurants of Old Montreal, Le Westin Montreal is conveniently located for both business travelers and tourists. Palais des Congres, Montreal's largest convention space, is across the street, and Notre-Dame Basilica is about a five-minute walk away. A bit farther are Christ Church Cathedral, shopping at Underground City, and the Old Port -- all within a 15-minute walk. Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport is a 20-minute drive, or about 45 minutes away by bus, depending on traffic. 

Rooms

The earth-tone classic decor of a modern, high-end chain hotel 

Guest rooms range from Traditional King/Queen to Presidential Suites. Dark-wood furnishings mix with heather grays and browns, and the clean, white bedding of the Westin's signature Heavenly Beds. Nice touches include coffeemakers with Starbucks coffee, backlit bathroom mirrors, and iHome clock radios with iPod docks. All rooms come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs (32-inch and 42-inch), mini-fridges, safes, and executive work desks. Premium Queen/King Rooms have separate sitting areas, which include sleeper sofas and a second flat-screen TV; Deluxe King Rooms have two walls of windows and walk-in showers with dual showerheads; Deluxe Suite King Rooms have a separate bedroom, a living and dining area, and two 42-inch flat-screens; and Presidential Suites have two living rooms and two bedrooms, each with their own 42-inch flat-screen TVs, and walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads. Bathrooms are beige and modern, and include bathrobes and glass-wall stall showers or shower/tub combos.

Features

Large fitness center, glass-bottom pool, French bakery, and event space 

Le Westin Montreal has a nice selection of amenities for business travelers, including 39 meeting rooms totaling more than 45,000 square feet of space, which includes two ballrooms and a ninth-floor terrace with Montreal skyline views. There's also a large business center with a printer and three separate desks, each with a desktop computer. The indoor pool has a glass bottom, and there are also hot and cold tubs available. The Westin fitness center is spacious and modern, with many cardio and weight machines, and guests can rent gym clothes and sneakers for a daily fee. Gazette restaurant serves farm-to-table cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and has an extensive wine list; Reporter bar is open for tapas and cocktails, though there's nothing too creative about the menu. Guests can also grab French pastries and sandwiches/paninis at Les Moulins La Fayette, a bakery and cafe with a direct entrance from the hotel. The hotel has a mini-market for snacks, too. Pets are permitted for a fee, and Wi-Fi is free throughout the property. Parking is valet-only for a fee.
