Great location, room very clean and warm, no street noise. Priced reasonably. Downside to hotel - lots of stairs. Lots. If you have a big bag you might find it a challenge if you are not fit. Not sure if there is disabled access.

They gave us a room in an small apartment rather than the hotel building unexpectedly. The rooms smelled cigrette. It was supppsed to be non-smoking. I think these reasons are sufficient not to stay in such a hotel.

First. Unexpectedly, they gave us an isolated room with long stairs in another apartment separate from the hotel building. The room smelled cigrette smoking. However, they kindly offered to change the room. Second. The price was unexpectedly higher compared to Frenchized inns. Rooms were clean. Service and hospitality was poor.

We wanted to stay in downtown Montreal, in a hotel close to downtown, and the Old City. This hotel, from what we read online, was ideal, and the price was right. Unfortunately what we didn't learn until we got there, was that the hotel's check-in desk was on the Second Floor, up a very, very long flight of stairs. And... More

Our budget boutique hotel is located on the second floor of a centennial building and there is no possibility of an elevator. We realize that there are numerous stairs to contend with and that it can be difficult for some guests. We indicate this situation in several locations on our website to help prevent any issues. I am pleased, however,... More

A perfectly located off-beat hotel in Montreal's theater district, proximate to downtown and Old Port of Montreal. The rooms are spacious and clean, each unique in its orientation and decor. Helpful staff and, really, everyone in the hotel seemed to be having a wonderful time. The stairs really are long, so the hotel is not suitable for those with limited... More

My husband and I were recently in Montreal on business and stayed at the Hotel Quartier des Spectacles.

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
