Updated on Jun 28, 2012
Overview
The Residence Inn by Marriott is located on Peel Street, in between Maisonneuve Boulevard and Sherbrooke Street, in downtown Montreal.

This 24-floor hotel features free wireless Internet in all its rooms and common areas, as well as free wired Internet. There is no restaurant, but the hotel offers guests a free hot and cold breakfast. The hotel also features an on-site fitness centre, a laundrette, and a rooftop patio. There is an underground parking lot on the corner (not attached to the hotel, guests must go outside to access it) at a cost of $25/day.

There are 190 rooms divided into four types for guests to choose from: studio with king-size bed and sofa bed; studio with two double beds and sofa bed, one-bedroom suite with two double beds and sofa bed; and one-bedroom suite with king-size bed and sofa bed. All rooms include a kitchen with stovetop, fridge, and microwave. The rooms also all come with a flat-screen TV with pay-per-view movies and air conditioning. 

The hotel is located up the street (about a three-minute walk) to Peel metro station, and about 2km from both the bus and train station (an approximate 10-minute drive). The Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport is about 20km away, and travel times vary depending on traffic conditions. 

The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from the shops and restaurants of St. Catherine Street, as well as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts on Sherbrooke Street, and both Concordia and McGill University. It is about a 20-minute walk from Parc Mont Royal, as well as the Quartier des Spectacles at Place des Arts, home to some of Montreal's outdoor summer festivals, such as the International Jazz Festival. Old Montreal and Chinatown are about 3km away, a 10-minute drive or 20-minute metro ride from Peel station (all distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps).

The Good
Overall, this hotel received consistent praise for its staff, rooms, location, and overall value for money in the guest reviews used for this analysis. 

The hotel's staff members were praised in many of the guest reviews for being welcoming and helpful. There were numerous comments that the front desk staff were helpful in answering questions and giving directions and were attentive to guest's needs. 

The hotel's rooms were praised in many of the guest reviews for being spacious, clean and comfortable. Guests particularly enjoyed the kitchenettes, with some guests commenting that buying groceries and cooking was a great way to save money. Several guests said that their rooms were cleaned regularly by housekeeping staff and that the beds were comfortable. One reviewer appreciated that there were only eight rooms on her floor, which kept noise from the hallway and elevator to a minimum. 

The hotel's location downtown on Peel Street was praised for being convenient and accessible, particularly to Montreal's universities and the business and shopping districts. 

Many guests also enjoyed the hotel's amenites such as the generous free hot and cold breakfast, the rooftop patio with views of the city, as well as the extra touch of home baked cookies at the front desk.

Numerous guest reviewers wrote that the hotel was excellent value for money and that they would stay there again on future trips to Montreal. One reviewer described the hotel as "simply perfect" and that it felt like a "home away from home". 

The Bad

A few guest reviews noted that the air conditioner was noisy and did not work well, and a few others found the parking lot inconvenient and expensive, as it was $25/day and located beside the hotel, rather than inside or attached. 

There were also a few comments that the bathrooms and elevators were small, and a few guests mentioned in their reviews that they would have appreciated a pool or hot tub.

Henry from Toronto, ON CA rated Residence Inn by Marriott - Montreal Downtown 7 out of 10 on July 31, 2011 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Pretty good value, but a few weaknesses"
"Elevators were too small and few in number. Air conditioner in room too loud. Could have used a cot, but none available. Parking setup should be more flexible regarding in/out privileges, especially since it is an extra charge. Free breakfast was appreciated but not exactly gourmet quality. Downtown location was very convenient. Staff were very helpful. Exercise room bright and spacious, kitchenette very well equipped. Towels were new and plush. Room was clean but a bit stuffy as is common with hotel rooms. Club across the street noisy at night."

"The hotel was in a great location. Very reasonable price considering breakfast was included and there was a kitchenette! Only issue: we found a used condom wrapper that was in a folded blanket in the closet. But the hotel itself was very clean!!! Someone just missed it..."

"Hotel was close to McGill and a great Japanese restaurant next door to the hotel. I was very comfortable, and the staff was friendly and very helpful. I was close to the metro and the underground shopping. I would go back."

"Did not get any sleep from 5:30-8am because of an alarm of the room next door that was not shut off. When we called the front desk they said they'd send someone to check it out. An hour later when the alarm was still going off... we called again and they said they'd check again. Which they apparently didn't cause we called a third time before they came up to the room only to find out that there were no guests in the room and the alarm had been set a few nights earlier. Frustrating that the first time we called they didn't verify like they said that they would. Otherwise a very pleasant place. Take advantage of the 24th floor heated pool with a neat view of montreal."
