For our recent trip to Montreal, we stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel. We had a great stay, and I would definitely recommend this hotel. It was very pretty. I love staying in luxury hotels for the service and the design. We usually never eat in the restaurants of nicer hotels or order room service, however, due to the cost.
We were greeted warmly at the reception desk upon our arrival and were surprised when he upgraded us to the Tourelle suite, even though we had booked an ordinary room. He also gave my daughter her own Intercontinental bag, which had crayons, coloring sheets, and her very own teddy bear. The teddy bear was especially appreciated since all the toys we had packed were in our lost luggage.
The Tourelle suite was spacious with a bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, and hallway. We had two TV’s, a separate shower and bathtub, and lots of seating. The towels were large and fluffy and the bedding was comfy.
The location of the hotel is very convenient. Not only is it in easy walking distance to both Vieux Montreal and downtown, the building is connected to the World Trade Center. That means that we could walk straight to a food court (during business hours) and to the metro, without even walking outside.
Our suite was conveniently located right next to the pool and terrace on the dixieme etage (10th floor). My daughter and husband swam several times in the lap pool. We had to go buy new swimsuits at the mall since we were without our luggage.
