Editor's Analysis
Updated Mar 21, 2015
Gouverneur Hotel Montreal is attached to a mall and is ideally located in downtown Montreal only a 1-minute walk from the Berri-UQAM Metro station, an important hub for accessing much of Montreal, including the airport and train station. It's popular with guests seeking a more affordable stay in downtown Montreal close to many amenities, attractions and restaurants, both above and below ground.

There are 352 rooms in this 30-floor property. Guests may choose a room with either 1 queen bed, 1 king bed, or 2 double beds. All rooms are air-conditioned and feature cable TV with pay-per-view movies, a work desk, an ironing board with iron, and a hair dryer. The hotel also has junior and executive suites on its top floors (the 29th and 30th), which offer a whirlpool tub, a separate living room, and more space in addition to the standard amenities.

Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout the hotel, and parking is available at the hotel's indoor lot for $19.50 per day. Amenities at this hotel include 14 meeting rooms, a business centre, an indoor saltwater pool, a fitness centre, as well as a restaurant and bar. The restaurant, Le Vignoble, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner while L'Imprevu Bistro Lounge serves drinks and dinner. 

The hotel is a 1-minute walk to the Berri-UQAM metro station, which is the centre for 3 of Montreal’s 4 metro lines, as well as the Greyhound bus station, and a stop for the 747 airport shuttle bus, which takes travellers to Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport for $10. Gare Centrale, the Montreal train station is 4 metro stops from the hotel at Bonaventure station.

Many of Montreal's popular downtown neighbourhoods, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and other attractions are within walking distance of the hotel. Chinatown and Old Montreal are about a 15-minute walk and the lively bars and restaurants of St. Denis Street and St. Laurent Boulevard are about a 10-minute walk from the hotel.

**Guests should note that the indoor pool is closed afternoons from noon to 5 pm on weekdays but open full hours on weekends from 8 am to 10 pm.
The Good
The majority of reviews read for this report were favourable toward the hotel which obtained good scores overall. The hotel was considered to provide a clean and comfortable room at an affordable price in an excellent location.

Most of the positive comments were directed towards the hotel location, which one reviewer described as “the crossroads to everything". The highlight for many guests stemmed from being attached to an indoor mall that provided nearby access to groceries, a drugstore, a food court for a $5 breakfast, shopping and restaurants. Another very important aspect was that the hotel was connected indoors to the major transit hub, Berri-UQAM Metro station which connects travellers to much of Montreal, the train station and the airport. Guests said they could travel in the winter without donning winter clothing to access attractions.

Some guest reviewers also commented on beautiful park and skyline views from their rooms, particularly on the higher floors. Guests also found the rooms to be clean with comfortable beds, although somewhat dated.

Overall, guests were pleased with the staff at this hotel, and found them friendly and conversant in English.

Some guests found the indoor pool and free Wi-Fi to add value to their stay and the general consensus of opinion was weighted in favour of good value at this hotel for the room price, in the reviews read recently for this editorial.
The Bad
The major beef about this hotel had to do with the tired state it was in overall. Several guests pointed this out in the reviews that were read for this report. Some guests focused on the bathrooms and said they were aging, one guest said the finishes were dated and another pointed out stained walls, peeling wallpaper and cracked tiles in the bathroom. A couple of guests added that the furniture was old, TVs were not HD and there was no mini-fridge in the rooms.
