Rated 4 out of 5 by Sperry8 Great hotel in a great locale
Came here for a trip with friends and the hotel didn't disappoint. Staff was very friendly as well.
1- Was upgraded to a corner deluxe room as room as Platinum customer (no Suites avail). Room was quite spacious and bright. Bed was comfy too and bathroom was large enough although not big by any standards.
2- Small but usable gym and pool area.
3- Taxis right in front of hotel and Uber exists in Montreal as well.
4- Nice area in old town with chinatown and it's yummy dim sum nearby.
5- Fruit plate left as in-room Platinum amenity, nice touch.
1- Only one bottle of water provided in my room. Had to call down multiple times to get more free water.
2- Free breakfast buffet provided to Platinums but it is quite a poor spread and barely worthy of giving up the 500 point Platinum amenity to get it.
3- Ate in the restaurant and the food was substandard. No sir, this will not do. They need a new chef. Do not eat here.
4- Worse still they were vacuuming and cleaning noisily at the restaurant at Noon while I was there. When I complained about the noise and choice of time such loud cleaning occurred the waitress said they had no choice since they have to clean the restaurant sometime after breakfast. Ridiculous. The time to clean and make loud noise is NOT in the middle of lunch time when the restaurant is full.
I'd definitely stay here next time I am in Montreal (which is an amazing city!). But I definitely would not eat at the restaurant again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JOttawa Great staff, but some improvements needed
We stayed two nights recently at the Montreal Westin. I had stayed previously at the Westin in Vancouver and had been very impressed with my room and the feeling of comfort and luxury. I was a little surprised that Montreal's Westin didn't quite have that same feel. While the staff were lovely - helpful and responsive - the room wasn't quite as nice. Our fridge did not work (it was replaced quickly, but was very unbalanced and made a loud noise every time we opened it. There were dirty dishes on the floor outside our room that stayed there for a day. Our shower had heavy water pressure that wasn't comfortable. I find it's the little details that make the Westin feel so comfortable and luxurious. Unfortunately, we missed a lot of these details in out stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SPGguest101 Wonderful stay
Stayed for a family vacation. The pools were certainly the attraction and worth staying for. Location is great and the staff were very responsive. The Family package was nice, but seems rather expensive to change $38 for parking a day and there was not much savings in the coupons relative to packages at the attractions themselves. Food at the breakfast buffet was decent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusinessTravelerfromNY I LOVE this hotel
I stayed at this hotel weekly on business for several months in 2015. I cannot express how much I loved staying here. The staff was always so kind and attentive, the rooms were comfortable and quiet, and the location was ideal. The restaurant has delicious food and a well stocked bar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GoldStarwoodCustomer Westin Restaurant
Staff in the restaurant for anglophone customers is not responsive. Examine your breakfast bill carefully. I stayed in this hotel twice within a 6 month period and both times, the staff default instructions are to charge for the hot buffet. Both stays, I ordered the continental breakfast buffet and was charged for the hot buffet. Both stays, I needed to get an adjustment. PCI compliance is not acceptable. At least twice - once with room serivce and once in the restaurant - the server walked away with my Visa to process a transacation that was out of sight. Not acceptable. Caution also with room service between service fees, tips etc. is excessive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Accomod8 Typically a great hotel...
I have visited this hotel on numerous occasions, and it has always been a terrific stay. From the accommodations and staff, I have had no complaints.
However, during my stay last week, one of the water pipes burst as I took a shower, flooding the washroom and soaking the carpet. The staff were quite responsive in examining my complaint, however, I was left in my room trying to get ready for my meeting with the floor soaked and with almost no feasible access to the washroom. I am not sure what could have been done (maybe a room change?) and even as I was checking out and explained my experience to the staff, they seemed somewhat indifferent to the incident.
Like I said, this is one back experience amongst many good ones, so I would stay at this hotel again. However, I definitely believe much more could have been done to make my stay more enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 46Mark46 Great location
The Westin Montreal is located on the boundary between downtown and Old Montreal. Notre Dame is an easy walk. The restaurant is quite good for a hotel restaurant. As is always the case with Westin, the bed was wonderful. We had a corner room overlooking the St. Lawrence. It has a very well equipped health club.

Overall, this is an excellent Westin!
Location: A 3 minute walk to Notre Dame, 5 min to China Town, 7-10 mins to Old Port. Excellent restaurants in the vicinity.
Hotel: Clean, updated hotel. Friendly staff. Wish the tv in the room was a bit bigger but not a big deal.
There were a few things that could be improved. 1) I got an email from Westin Experiences a few days before checkin asking if I needed anything. I requested restaurant recommendations for Christmas Day (checkin day) and it took 24 hrs to get a response which said it was passed onto the concierge. I never got recommendations and ended up eating at the Gazette. 2) Being platinum, I had access to the high speed internet, which wasn't very high speed. 3) At checkin, I was told breakfast was until 10am when in fact it was until at least 11am (and sometimes later, as told to us by the restaurant). Didn't appreciate being rushed. I did tell staff at checkout and was told only sometimes it goes past 10am (which doesn't match what the restaurant said).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mitch123 This hotel is great but not this trip!
I like staying at this Westin in Montreal for use of the pool/pools. They were closed but no one told me that upon reserving a room. I also reserved my room in plenty of advance notice and i am SPG.....however I was not given an upgrade and instead I was shuffled off to some tower i didn't know existed. Food menu is outdated; same as the last 3 years anyways and doesn't have much to choose from. Wine list is terrible. Staff are ok but don't get the concept of this hotel. Big waste of money to me....I will of stayed at the W Hotel or Sheraton next time. Or perhaps a competitor.

Everything about Le Westin is excellent. It's spotless, the staff is super friendly and helpful.The room was clean and comfortable.Beautiful big bathroom.The bed was heavenly. After walking all over the city it was a pleasure to just relax on this bed and sleep was pure joy. When I asked for something for the room, they sent it up within 10 minutes. Location was perfect to walk almost anywhere. Great hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FranBeth Is this really a Westin?? And Why be a Starwood Member??
Two couples checked in together I am a Starwood member my sister is not. I was given a terrible room dark, small- looked out on a wall. She was given a huge light room. I was happy for her but wondered what being a member of Starwood Preferred guest means after that. When I complained about my room they changed it to a better room than I had but unequal to hers. In addition, both our rooms were not cleaned well- things left on the floor bathroom not cleaned properly - no toiletries in my room or water at check in (my sister's room did have- so that is how I knew I should have had them) Also the room 2 doors away had a dirty tray left in front of the door both days- from early morning til late afternoon. For the amount of money we paid for our stay, we were highly disappointed. In addition my sister called the desk, with ample 1 hour warning, to ask that our car be in front at a certain time- not only wasn't it there ( that can happen) but it then took an additional 1/2 hour to get it.We travel very frequently and this was one of the worst "good hotel" experiences that we encountered. My impression is that there is not enough
staff to accommodate the number of guests.

Was looking forward to our stay at the Westin. The pool was quite small having occupancy of 10, 6 and 6 for the pools. Floor around the pool had clumps of hair and the pool was murky with a bandaid in one of them. We mentioned it to the attendant but it was not cleaned while we were there.
Another issue was the bar - it was never open. Our coffee maker did not work and it was quickly replaced.
Great location for old Montreal.

Every staff member that I encountered was professional and friendly. The rooms were large and comfortable. We were celebrating my son's 18th birthday and had 4 rooms, all were clean and well equipped. Anthony at the bar was full of information and great humor, we had a great time and can't wait to return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Base10 Wonderful experience overall.
I had a wonderful experience staying at this hotel - the facility was very accommodating and the location was perfect.
It was walking distance to everywhere we wanted to see and experience in Montreal; whether it was shopping at St. Catherine Street, experiencing the sights and restaurants in Old Montreal, dining at China town, and to top it off Comiccon was taking place across the street at Palais des congress (got to see a lot of interesting costumes). It was a wonderful experience overall.

Great service staff at Gazette, both breakfast and dinner crew!
Not enough wardrobe space when you stay for a week with a baby.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rt13 It's in the details
Was not impressed with this westin. The bed covers had stains or burn marks, the availability of outlets on the bed side tables or desk were inadequate. The shower drain cover was loose, leaving the drain pipe exposed,and the ac unit made a horrible sound when the fan was turned on. The hotel set up and elevator layout was poorly marked and quite a distance from the check in.
On the plus side, the valet and staff manning the driveway and door were very courteous.
Usually I am happy with Starwood properties but this was a below average stay.

Overall good experience at this hotel. The king suites at this hotel offer amazing space, especially if traveling with family. Unfortunately my room didn't have a view and my room was facing a brick wall. I was upgraded to SPG member floor. Hotel has a fantastic pool with glass bottom overlooking entrance. Really convenient to convention center, old Montreal, and underground city. If not for poor view this would have been a five star stay. Overall a good hotel for exploring Montreal and attending an event at convention center.
