“Perfect Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

We recently stayed at the Hilton for the Civic Holiday weekend arriving by Megabus. The megabus station is now located conveniently on the building right beside Hilton Bonaventure. We were in Montreal for the Osheaga festival and Hilton is the perfect place to stay. The subway station is located steps from the hotel along with all other shops, restaurants and night life. It is a great combination of relaxation and action. Their rooftop pool is the best seller of the hotel and offers the much needed zen from the past paced city life and from standing the whole day at the festival. The front staffs are attentive and very nice. The hotel is very unique with art and paintings hung on the wall in the hallways. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Recently I stayed here on a trip with some friends. After finally finding the place (attempting to read french signs with no help from the locals) located between downtown buildings, we arrived. The hotel is lovely and we were lucky enough to have a room very close to the front, elevators, and pool. The rooms were maintained every day and the beds were extraordinarily comfortable for hotel beds. However a few big downfalls is that because the Pool can have members who are not staying in the hotel, it is constantly packed. Of my 4 day trip, I never got a seat in the sun, that is the honest truth. People would "save" seats with towels and belongings on the chairs and not be there for hours. It was completely unacceptable and new rules should be implemented. Not being able to enjoy the pool was completely disappointing for me. Some highlights were that it was an easy walk to a lot of attractions or a short cab ride. Be advise, know exactly where you want to go and know how to pronounce it. The cab drivers are expensive, get lost easily, and do not care (majority of them) for Americans. I say all this to say, overall Montreal is lovely, but next time I would stay elsewhere.

The hotel takes up the top two floors of a concrete brutalist 1960s block with dedicated lifts that take you up 9 floors (do not believe their claim of 17!!) in 30 seconds. It is not, therefore, a place for people with claustrophobic fear of lifts, like one of our party, and the only stairs are emergency exits that do not let you back into the hotel once you have gone through them. So hotel staff had to be asked to be on hand to open the doors for my friend - something about which they were not always particularly sympathetic.

However, once you are inside there are good things. The reception and central facilities are on the top floor and are surrounded by large roof gardens where you can sit with ducks swimming (I think their wings ave been clipped) on channels of flowing water, pools with waterfalls, mature trees and attractive planting - but not under the stars: the gardens are locked quite early. Below are the banquetting/conference rooms. There is an outdoor as well as an indoor swimming pool. The rooms (at the periphery of the layout) are on both floors and are spacious and comfortable and have free wifi.

But the common facilities are less than you would expect: there is only one small central bar and it has no casual seating, only tables and chairs at which food is served. Indeed, there is a dearth of (indoor) places where a group of friends can sit and chat informally. The restaurant (as distinct from the bar) is not always open. Food in both places is overpriced and not always good: I had some watery fish and chips but a good duck magret. The service is sometimes slipshod and at least one bar waiter virtually insisted on being tipped for producing a couple of beers.

And this is yet another hotel that hypocritically boasts its green credentials with a claim that towels left on racks will not be replaced - but invariably replaces them anyway.

I was told at 5:00pm on August 12, 2012 that I would not have my room cleaned. This is supposed to be a good hotel, I checked in yesterday and they desk chair had feces on the seat and the refridgerator in the room did not work. Today, no housekeeping. There have to be better hotels in Montreal...but maybe not!

My sons and I stayed at the Hilton Bonadventure in Montreal for two nights. Previously at the Delta (Montreal) which we enjoyed very much, the Hilton Bonadventure on the other hand left a bit to be desired. First impressions, it's very dated,it had a musky,damp smell to it, probably from the carpets, my son said "it smelled like Grandpa's house".. Lol. The rooms are small, although we stayed in a 2 double bed room, I found it small especially traveling with children. There was no balcony and there was no view from the window.It wasn't very clean, there was dandruff on the sofa..ewwww, my son even found a piece of broken glass on the rug. In the washroom the taps and shower head didn't look like they were even cleaned, there was hair on the floor from previous guests. The doors are old and paint was peeling off of the ceiling. There were random dials and switches on the wall for nothing which don't work, another something left from the 70's I'm guessing .I'm very 'picky' when it comes to hotel cleanliness I feel that if you're paying a couple hundred dollars a night, the least you should be getting is a CLEAN room.
On the positive side, the pool is a plus, although it rained the whole time we were there, it is a nice place for guests to enjoy. The gardens on the other hand, not that great, smelt like stagnant water, did not look well kept at all.
The staff was friendly and helpful. It's relatively close to the downtown area, and Old Montreal about a 20 min walk either way. Conveniently located right in front of Via Rail for easy train access.
Overall, the hotel for me was just Ok. It could definitely use updating and renovations. Maybe Paris Hilton could go without a few pairs of shoes and invest it in updating the family business. I wouldn't stay there again if I didn't need the pool.
