Walk everywhere from this central, downtown location..to Vieux Montreal, Bell Centre, up Mont Royal, shopping, great restaurants! Outstanding cleanliness, good breakfasts included, plus a kitchen in the room. It does not get better than this for the money.
Candlewood Suites met me and my brother's needs perfectly for a weekend trip up to Montreal. Here are the reasons I would recommend booking this hotel for anyone considering:
1. The friendliness/helpfulness of the staff
- The staff were very helpful throughout our stay. Everyone spoke perfect English to me and answered my questions about parking, how to get to the room, and where to go to convert cash. The woman who checked me in that first night even converted 40$ USD to CAD at the front desk, which was awesome as the exchange centers were closed by the time we got up there in the evening. Everyone I spoke with was approachable and did not seem bothered when I asked them questions.
2. The room
- I honestly wasn't sure what to expect about the size of the room given that we had booked a single queen bed, but it was large! The room had a full counter stove, sink, refrigerator, eating bowels, and utensils all in the room. The bed itself was nice and firm (while not being overly so) and comfortable for both my brother and I to get a good night’s sleep. Everything in the room was really clean, including the bathroom, and the sheets on the bed were freshly washed.
3. The location
- This hotel is located a 5 minute walk away from the Complexe Desjardins where restaurants, an IGA grocery store, a metro stop, and an RBC bank for converting money are located. Place Des Arts, Chinatown, and Old Montreal are also nearby within walking distance.
The only negative thing I have to say is there was a ceramic tray holding shampoo etc. on a shelf behind the toilet. The shelf was slanting forward and even though we didn't knock it, the tray slipped to the floor and broke. I understand the bathrooms are being renovated so that is a good thing. Otherwise our stay was wonderful and considering there was a full kitchen, our next stay in Montreal will probably be there!
How happy we were when we arrived at the Travel Lodge to find a wonderful destination waiting for us. Friendly check-in, spacious, clean and quiet room. The cleaning staff was friendly and helpful, the couple of times we had to ask a question. We felt very satisfied with our stay and we would visit again, and of course, recommend to friends! Thank you, Travel Lodge!
