Editor's Analysis
Updated Aug 23, 2012
Overview
The Fairfield Inn and Suites Montreal Airport by Marriott is located in Dorval, a 5-minute drive from the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.

There are 131 rooms at the hotel, all of which feature a work desk, an LCD HD TV, a mini-fridge, a coffeemaker, an iron with ironing board and a hairdryer. Guests can select a room with either 1 king or 2 queen beds, a studio with either 1 king or 2 queen beds and a sofabed, or a suite with 1 king bed, a sofabed and a separate living area. Pets are not permitted.

The smoke-free, 9-floor property provides guests with free shuttle service 24 hours a day to and from the airport. It also offers free Wi-Fi and a free continental breakfast. On-site parking is available for $12/day. Guests can enjoy access to the hotel's amenities such as a fitness centre and indoor pool. The hotel's restaurant, Napa Lounge, is open for dinner every evening.

The hotel is a 3-minute drive to Autoroute 20, an east-west highway. Guests driving that route from the hotel can reach downtown in about 15 minutes. There is a small shopping centre, the Dorval Gardens, which has a bank, a grocery store and a few restaurants, about a 3-minute drive from the hotel. Plaza Cote Vertu, a larger mall, is about a 15-minute drive from the hotel. The Dorval terminus (home to a VIA Rail station and public transit) is also a 3-minute drive from the hotel. Here, commuters can board the 211 express bus, which goes to the Lionel Groulx metro station downtown in 20 minutes. (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

The Bad
Overall, there were very few negative comments about the hotel in the reviews used for this analysis.

Of those, most were focused on the breakfast and the airport shuttle service. Some reviewers found the hotel's
complimentary breakfast to be insufficient, offering no hot food items. The hotel's general manager responded online on August 13, 2012, stating that they have received the complaints and will soon be offering more of a selection, including hot food items. 

As well, a few reviewers commented that the airport shuttle service gets crowded quickly, and that while the drivers were quick to return, guests might want to factor in a wait time when planning their trip to the airport.

"There were a lot of bugs crawling in the first roon we were in, we later switched to another room but it had insects crawling everywhere too. Other than that..the breakfast was really good each day and the service was also attentive. It's about 1/2 hour away from the city and main attractions which isn't too bad."
