Hotel Review by Hozpitality:- Holiday Inn Montreal Centreville Downtown, Canada

If you would like to see best of Montreal on foot, stay in heart of the town!

We were lucky that we decided to stay at Holiday Inn Montreal Centreville Downtown which is certainly one of the best located hotels in Montreal.  The 240 roomed hotel offers the best of two worlds, western comfort with a touch of the Orient. We were told that the Asian themed hotel was owned by Chinese government and was renovated in 2015. The hotel is designed with geomancy principles (Feng Shui), and we loved the built-in pond with carps and fish in the lobby. The hotel also has a parking garage on site with in/out privileges.

We were looking for the ideal hotel in downtown Montreal and the Holiday Inn Montreal CentreVille Downtown was the best choice. The hotel is a landmark offering easy access to historic, cultural and shopping attractions in the city. We loved the hotel's location which is next to Chinatown and 1 block from Old Montreal's attractions and shops. Holiday Inn Montreal CentreVille Downtown is across the street from the Palais des Congress-Convention Centre and Place d'Armes subway station, nearby businesses and 20 minutes from the airport. The hotel is walking distance from the waterfront and the famous Notre Dame Basillica right across the street.

Our check-in was handled very nicely by the Front Desk associates. The reception staff took time to explain us about the area, places to visit while staying in Montreal. We also met Louis –Philippe Lajoie, the hotel’s Director of Sales & Marketing who explained us about the facilities of the hotels and the areas nearby. He also gave us insights about the hotel’s history and background. The Restaurant staff was also very friendly and took very good care of us.

The room offered to us was renovated, "smoke free" and large enough to accommodate 2 queen beds. Since we were a group of 3 adults and 2 kids, we were offered one extra cot in our room. We feel the room was small with an extra bed and we should have booked a suite for ourselves which has over 850-sq ft of gracious living with separate bedroom and living rooms, two bathrooms and upscale amenities.

The amenities in our room included a work desk with chair, Coffee maker, Flat screen TV and Ironing facilities. We loved free high speed Wi-Fi access. There is usually no fridge in the room, but the hotel was kind enough to give us one upon request.

The Restaurant Chez Chine and Bar offers the finest authentic Chinese cuisine in Montreal. The seating is under the pagoda in the Chinese garden surrounded by the miniature pond, or in the private dining rooms. We did not get a chance to try the restaurant for meals except Buffet Breakfast which is also served in Restaurant Chez Chine. The breakfast buffet menu was basic and could be revamped as it is not normally included with the room cost for everyone.

The hotel has 16 meeting rooms, 10 with natural light and free high speed wireless internet.

There is a smaller heated indoor pool and a whirlpool in the hotel (which we did not have a chance to use). The pool looked clean with guests enjoying the facilities.  There is a complimentary Fitness Center with Rower, Stair Stepper, Treadmill, Elliptical Machines, Free Weights and Stationary Bicycle.

The hotel is a short walk to Notre Dame Basillica and Old Montreal. We could also head down to the river for some great family entertainment and restaurants. The hotel is very centrally located between the old Montreal and downtown Montreal providing the best of both experiences.

There is so much to see in old Montreal including Notre-Dame Basilica and Place Jacques-Cartier, Old Port, La Ronde Six Flags Amusement Park, Mount-Royal Park, St. Joseph's Shrine, Saint-Laurent Blvd, Olympic Park including Stadium, Planetarium, Biodome, Insectarium and world reknown Botanical Gardens, Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal Casino, Latin Quarters, Underground City and Palais Des Congress (Convention Center).

Also, shopping on St. Catherine’s Street and walking on the cobblestoned streets of Old Montreal leading to Place Jacques Cartier where local arts and crafts abound.
