Editor's Analysis
Updated Apr 13, 2015
The Hotel de Paris is located on Sherbrooke Street, east of the downtown core, in Montreal's vibrant Plateau neighbourhood. The Plateau is an area full of cafés, restaurants and nightlife, popular with locals and with travellers wishing to have a more authentic experience in Montreal.

The smoke-free hotel is housed in a 100-year-old converted Victorian mansion. Its 34 rooms were renovated in January 2012 and feature new carpets, furniture, fixtures, TVs and linens. Rooms are all equipped with a private bathroom, air conditioning, and cable TV. Guests may choose a room with 1 double bed, 1 queen bed, or larger rooms with 1 king or 2 queen beds. There is also a family room available, which can accommodate up to 8 people. 

Free Wi-Fi is provided in all the rooms and common areas. There is also a computer workstation with Internet in the lobby which is available for guests 24 hours a day. Complimentary continental breakfast is served every morning in the hotel's on-site restaurant which is also open for lunch. Local calls are free from the hotel.

There is also an outdoor terrace, overlooking Sherbrooke Street, which is open throughout the summer months. Due to the age of the building, there is no elevator in the hotel. Parking is available in the hotel's indoor parking lot, for $15.25 including tax per day. There is also free parking on the street, and front desk staff explained that there are a three free spots in the lot behind the hotel. Pets are welcome in specified rooms at $15 per night.

The hotel is a 7-minute walk to Sherbrooke metro station, and a 10-minute walk to Berri-UQAM metro station, which is the centre for 3 of Montreal’s 4 metro lines. The Berri-UQAM station is also home to the Greyhound bus station, as well as the 747 airport shuttle bus which takes travellers to Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport for $8. The train station is 4 metro stops away, at Bonaventure station.

There are many attractions, restaurants, shops, and nightlife options within 1 to 2 km of the hotel. Parc Lafontaine is a 5-minute walk from the hotel, and St. Catherine Street, Chinatown, and Old Montreal are all within a 10-minute walk of the hotel. Also within a 10-minute walk are the Grande Bibliothèque, Montreal's largest library, and the lively restaurants and nightlife of both St. Denis Street and St. Laurent Boulevard (all travel time estimates: Google Maps).

Many guest reviewers found the hotel to be well-located near the metro and tourist attractions. And although many reviewers acknowledged that the rooms were small, many said they were clean and comfortable. 

A few reviewers who had stayed in the hotel before and after its renovations in March of 2012 commented that the rooms had greatly improved and they were impressed. There were some suggestions that the larger rooms with balconies, and the family room, were particularly comfortable and worth the extra cost.

There were also many comments in the reviews that the hotel staff members were very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

The Bad
Although many reviewers found the hotel to be comfortable and well located, there were some negative comments in the reviews read for this report, mostly concerning the rooms.

Some reviewers found the rooms and bathrooms too small, and that the hotel price was too high for the lack of space. There were a few comments that the hotel felt more like a hostel.

A few reviewers found the hotel's complimentary continental breakfast to be lacking in variety and substance. 

Limited on-site parking was an issue for some guests as well but they often mentioned that the staff were helpful in finding a spot on the street.
