I had booked this hotel using a $95 Team Buy voucher for 1 night and 1 bottle of sparkling wine (Spanish cava).  I stayed two nights and that was probably 2 nights too many.  It shouldn't be listed as a 3-star because it is more like a 2-star.  If it was accurately rated, I would've either expected less or elected...

Centrally located is the only good thing about this hotel. Our room was filthy with an overwhelming dusty old smell. The carpet had obviously not been vacuumed in months. The one chair was so stained and dirty I could not bring myself to sit on it or even lay a jacket on it. The bathroom door did not fit the...

Centrally located although the area was a little frightening at first. Lots of graffiti around as well as a open area next to the hotel full of garbage. The hotel staff at front desk were very nice and the breakfast in the morning was simple but ok for a little snack in the morning. The room was ok and comfortable,...

I rarely give a harsh review but for this, I would not be doing visitors any justice by sugar coating it. This place needs to be avoided. I wanted to like it. This hotel is located in a very central area, close to the metro, shops and restaurants. The price is great and they even offered free breakfast. It was...

From the moment we walked in, a slo-mo train wreck unfolding... First, too expensive for a place this dodgy. Then they want to charge extra for the third person in our party. What we thought was a $125 room was actually a $170 room. The guys behind the counter seemed to be on drugs. It seemed to take peculiar effort...

The hotel is overall a decent hotel, but the location is amazing. The Jazz Festival was only 2 blocks away. This hotel was also very close to downtown and chinatown, and if you go up the street of saint laurent, there are other popular places, like Schwartz and other restaurant. The hotel staff is friendly but the rooms were decent....

This is technically a 3 star hotel but I gave it 4 stars because it met so many of our needs for this stay. Yes, the breakfast is very basic but my husband and I don’t eat a huge breakfast so croissant and coffee was perfectly acceptable for us. They also frequently had a pot of tea in the lobby...

The location is good, the hotel is clean and the breakfast is nice, no lines even when the hotel was completely booked. Friendly staff. I stayed twice and both times the experience was positive. On my second time they only had smoking rooms. I booked a smoking but thankfully, didn't smell anything resembling a cigarette. I am extremely sensitive to...

The hotel suited our needs as we were only there one night, wouldn't have stayed any longer. The room is very clean but has a musty smell (almost like old smoke and dampness). The smell is not in the lobby or halls but just the room. The floor in the elevator wasn't the cleanest. There was free wifi and complimentary...

I stayed here when it was an Econolodge and it changed names while I was there. Anyhow, I was there with a friend for 3 nights. It was too long. I'm not sure if they still offer the breakfast but it was bare bones of one. There was cold cereal and coffee... The rooms were well used, that's for sure....

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
