Rated 4 out of 5 by LandedSPG Best of the low budget options
I've stayed here many times over the years, however staying here once or a bunch of times makes no difference to your experience. Everything is always the same. Which is not a bad thing, in this case.
To all the Platinum guests I want to say expect nothing from any Alofts, this being no exception. There is no free anything (other than internet) and the hotel only has rooms so no suite upgrades either. Also, you only get 250 SPG bonus points at check-in. If you can get over these things, then you'll have a clean ROOM at a decent price (sometimes) and a friendly staff with a nice little lobby with a cool bar and a pool table too!
Also it's a 5 minute bus ride from the Airport which is good and bad (noise) but once you are in your room you can barely hear it with the TV on! :)
So, stay here if you are either in town for a night or don't want to spend too much money. However you are a 20 minute drive from downtown via highway. So if you plan on taxing anywhere, it will cost you.
This hotel meets the category 3 expectations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elizabeth17 Great airport proximity.
We use your hotel because of the airport proximity, when we have an early flight out in the morning.
We go to The Bifteque restaurant for the good food.
We thought that the parking was going to be free, like the Sheraton, but it is safe and close parking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by airchick This hotel had lots of amenites
For an airpot hotel this hotel had lots of amenities including a pool, gym, and bar. There was lots of space to sit in and around the lobby as well. It had good access to highways for both downtown Montreal and outside.

I stayed at this hotel twice in one week and feel less than satisfied with both my stays. I have stayed at Alofts in the past so I had a reasonable idea of what to expect when I reserved this hotel. The first room I stayed in had 2 wireless phones that did not work. It was impossible to call to set a wake-up call and calls to my room could not be answered. Also, I am annoyed when the thermostat is set in Fahrenheit- we are in Canada, metric is the standard...but more to the point, the heater in both rooms could not warm the room adequately. I felt uncomfortable in both rooms I stayed.
Also, would it hurt to provide two bars of soap instead of one? One for the shower and one for the sink? The other thing I would suggest is to properly seal the glass door in the shower. Every time I took a shower there was a huge puddle of water on the bathroom floor. Yes, I had a towel on the floor but it's a real annoyance to walk into the floor afterwards wearing socks and have wet feet.
I am a platinum member with SPG and have been for the last 7 years. I like Starwood properties because they get the little things right- but this Aloft property really missed the mark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Limoguy007 Best Hotel in North America!
Imagine the show Cheers, where everybody knows your name. This place makes you feel like you never left home.
I just love this place. The word no is not in anybody's vocabulary. From the Manager "Andrea" to Front desk "Dara" big Kudos to everyone. When I come to Montreal this is my choice Hotel even if they have no suites to accommodate Gold and Plat members! It's all about Service, 2 thumbs up!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by 8886654 Good choice if you're driving
If you're driving to Montréal, this is a good choice because of the parking lot. There's a parking fee, but it seems that everyone in the area charges that. Collusion, whatever. Pay the fee and move on. At least there was no fee for WiFi and it was reasonably quick. When I checked the other hotels in the immediate area, they charged for WiFi. The room was quieter than I thought it would be, since it's right next to the airport, and the shades really block all the light. As with most hotels, you can unplug the refrigerator to prevent it from cycling on and off all night. Since you're driving, you can drive approximately 15 minutes to downtown and park all day in one of the numerous garages for a reasonable price. Bonnes vacances
