My husband and I stayed at the Relais Lyonnais over Memorial Day weekend. I selected the hotel based purely on the reviews on Trip Advisor and they did not deceive. This is a charming modern hotel in a lively neighborhood. It is right next to the Berri-UQAM metro which provides access to three different metro lines. Our room faced the...

We just had a wonderful stay at Le Relais Lyonnais. We agree with everything positive that has been said on TripAdvisor. Albert and his staff could not have been warmer or more accommodating. Lovely, lovely place to stay in Montreal. Breakfast next door was outstanding!! Note: there is no elevator - if stairs are difficult for you.

We loved this wonderful hotel and the surrounding area! The service was great and we were even notified that we were getting bumped up to a larger room prior to our arrival! If you are looking for a great hotel, in a lovely area, close to a major subway line STAY HERE! You will not regret it.

Le Relais Lyonnais is a jewel in the whole tripadvisor/user reviews system. I found this hotel on Tripadvisor; and now I'm just trying to pay it forward. I was a long-time resident of Montreal, years ago, and I was delighted to discover this hotel right on St-Denis. You'd think it would be too noisy on such a busy nightlife street,...

I chose this hotel solely based on the reviews that I read on TripAdvisor. Let me tell you.... Le Relais Lyonnais is not No.1 on the list for no reason. After a long haul from Toronto, we were very pleasantly greeted by Albert, where he not only gave us vouchers for free breakfast, but also upgraded our room to a...

We found our long-anticipated trip to Paris derailed due to volcanic ash - and so we visited Montreal as a VERY last minute change of plan. We managed to snag a cancelled room reservation at Le Relais Lyonnais, and it was the best thing that could have happened to us. M. Albert did everything in his power to make us...

Great boutique hotel, clean, well appointed, nice furnishings, great bed and service that is second to none! What more can I say?

What a great hotel - everything was just lovely and Albert a delight. The room was spacious and immaculate, the bathroom was wonderful. Since it was our first time in Montreal, Albert recommended and made reservations for us at several restaurants. It's in a great location. Since rue St Denis is a very happening street, it can be a bit...

This place is my ideal hotel experience. Simple, contemporary, understanded and welcoming. I stayed on the street side my first time there and although the street traffic was busy, the room was quiet enough. Not perfect, but good enough. My second time there was at the back overlooking the atrium. Nice and Quiet - near perfection for a busy downtown...

All the great reviews about this hotel are dead on! This hotel is very quaint but modern and in a great location. It was very close to everything we wanted to do. The room was very nicely furnished and extremely clean. The hotel has a nice restaurant downstairs with great pastries and breakfast. But, what really made this hotel such...

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.
