Updated Jul 3, 2014
Overview
The Aloft Montreal Airport Hotel is located in Dorval, a 3-minute drive from Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL), making it an ideal option for air travellers.

The hotel has 136 rooms, with either one king or two queen beds. All rooms feature 9-foot ceilings, extra-large windows, platform beds with plush bedding, as well as an ergonomic work space, a 42" flat-screen TV and a connectivity station for laptops, cell phones, MP3 players and other electronic devices. The bathrooms feature an oversized walk-in shower with a frosted glass panel, but no bathtub.

Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout the hotel, and parking is available for $10/day. There is also a free shuttle service to and from the airport, which runs 24 hours a day in 15-minute intervals. The hotel has a gym, an indoor pool, an outdoor terrace, as well as indoor lounge with a pool table. There is no on-site restaurant, but the hotel has a bar-lounge, which serves drinks and snacks from 5:00 pm until midnight, as well as a 24-hour self-serve snack counter. (Dining is available a short walk across the street at the Sheraton.)

The hotel is a 3-minute drive to both the Autoroute 20, an east-west highway that will take guests downtown in about 15 minutes, and the Dorval terminus, which has a VIA rail station and a stop for the 211 bus, a 20-minute express ride downtown. The Dorval Gardens, a small shopping centre that has a bank, a grocery store and a few restaurants, is also a 3-minute drive from the hotel, while Plaza Cote Vertu, a larger mall, is about a 15-minute drive away.

The Bad
While many reviewers enjoyed the design, comfort and atmosphere of the hotel, there were a few comments in the reviews from guests who felt the hotel was lacking in some areas.

Some guests found it inconvenient that there is no on-site restaurant at the hotel, although there is a bar and a 24-hour snack counter, as well as several delivery menus for local restaurants. One guest recently solved the problem of no on-site restaurant by highlighting that guests could walk next door to the Sheraton for a larger meal.

A couple of guests noted that the hotel could use a little TLC with regard to maintenance and that the minimalist design appeared a little spartan in some areas.

A few guests complained that the hotel charged an extra $10 for parking.
