Montreal’s Hotel Le Germain
Hotel Le Germain is a fun, fresh, and fashionable boutique hotel located in downtown Montreal. With more than 100 rooms and suites, Hotel Le Germain’s concept is to allow guests to enjoy beautiful views of the city while pampering them with signature bedding and décor accessories made exclusively for the hotel by fashion designer Marie Saint Pierre. The warm, inviting staff, complimentary espresso bar, and Molton Brown products should also not be overlooked. With extra attention to making your stay memorable, Hotel Le Germain offers a program called Elite Extras that features special offerings such as relaxation, romance, or a night at the movies. Finally, and possibly the best, is Hotel Le Germain’s perfect host concept, “Gtails,” which means taking care of the finer details. Hotel Le Germain wants to meet all its guests’ needs but also anticipate them. ELITE. PAMPER. FASHION. What’s not to love?
Mary Anne is an easygoing traveler who loves a hotel that offers convenience and great amenities. The first thing she looks for in her room is slippers and a robe, and Hotel Le Germain did not disappoint as it supplies a 100-percent cotton bathrobe for after the shower or relaxing in her Superior Room. The room itself offered plenty of space, with a work area and a revolving bedside desk with power plugs close by for charging devices. The in-room goodies at the minibar were nice little treats for late at night before bedtime. Her other favorite aspect is downstairs, adjacent to the lobby: a complimentary library and cappuccino bar, which, if you’re a coffee addict like Mary Anne, you won’t be disappointed. Overall, Hotel Le Germain is a terrific hotel for families on vacation or business travelers who need a great place to meet with clients.
If there’s one thing Erin can’t live without, especially while traveling, it’s Wi-Fi, and she could not have been more pleased upon arriving at the Hotel Le Germain. While other hotels might offer free Wi-Fi to guests, it can often be a complicated process involving passwords and login names, all while still managing to be an unreliable system. However, the Hotel Le Germain is ahead of the game, which is a welcome change from the norm, especially for business travelers and travel writers. Here, no passwords are necessary, and a reliable Wi-Fi connection is easily accessible just by choosing the hotel’s network. Plus, that connection is constant and strong. It’s any traveler’s dream, and on top of great service, beautiful rooms, and comfortable beds, it’s just icing on the cake.
Lola is a “Hotel Junkie.” Traveling to great getaways and always looking for the fun, Lola believes if you pick the right place to stay, then the rest will fall into place. Hotel Le Germain is a bit unexpected. Of course, it’s a great spot to rest your head, but you can feel an underlying cheekiness to the place. Lola’s favorite thing about Hotel Le Germain was the playful “flower” arrangement in the lobby. It was tall vases with simple tropical greens and tiny fish. You might even miss the fish—it was like a playful secret.
Serving primarily the business traveler, Hotel Le Germain makes it easy to start your day by grabbing a quick bite or a coffee on your way out. Since Montreal is only a five-hour car ride up from Boston, it makes for a perfect short trip. Hotel Le Germain is a great boutique hotel for those who want style, comfort, and to be in the heart of downtown.
Mary Anne, Erin, and Lola were lucky guests of Hotel Le Germain and, as three well-traveled divas, they think it is an all-around great hotel. They liked the convenience of the hotel’s location but also that it seemed as though it was in a quiet neighborhood, even though Hotel Le Germain is right in the thick of things. Although they were treated to their stay, their opinions are still THEIRS.
