On a cold March weekend, stayed at one of the lofts. Every single one of the staff members was extremely courteous and professional. Enjoyed the spacious accommodations to cook a couple of special meals; lofts are well equipped. Just down the stairs to all kinds of entertainment. Love the cache and look forward to returning.
Great location. Hotel lobby was a bit tricky to find. Room rate was a bit pricey considering our room didn't even have a view. The suite itself was very nice , spacious, modern style with a mix of old style, exposed brick or stone walls. Their shower with the jets was awsome! I would recommend this hotel if you are staying longer than 2 nights as it has a kitchen. We only stayed for 2 nights so it felt like we didn't need all the Amenities that are provided within the rooms, perhaps thats why it is more on the expensive end. But overall very nice place. No parking, you have to get Valet.
We had a wonderful time but have some words of caution. First, the map marks the Auberge du Vieux-Port hotel, but its loft spaces are in other buildings nearby. We had a 500 sq ft loft, which was on the 3rd floor (stairs) over the restaurant Modavie, on Rue St. Paul & Boulevard St-Laurent (a couple of streets from the hotel). If you drive, you must fend for your own street parking or pay for the Auberge to park for you (recommended). Décor at our loft was just okay. Our check-in was more stressful than necessary, as we arrived during the night when there is only one staff member - so we had to find our place by ourselves, on foot (we left the key for parking), in the snow. At that point, I was regretting not taking a room in the main building. Here's the upside: we had a big, puffy bed with crisp white linens in a corner loft with exposed-brick and large windows, and woke up to a beautiful, snowy scene outside. Instead of hotel with lobby, it felt like we were local residents for the weekend, which we liked. The view was, in fact, probably better than any of those in the main hotel which face the water - we faced neighboring brick buildings full of galleries and cafes.
We checked into the Auberge Montreal. They have 6 other buildings with town house style lofts. It was two block walk above Montreal steak pub house. Stainless steel kitchen, sitting and eating are. Two person jacuzzi tub and water fall shower. Not to mention the views of the cobblestone streets of St. Paul st. It was perfect. We found our new go to hotel in the middle of Old Montreal. Unfortunately what ruined it was screaming bar patrons walking passed you building. Honking horns. 11:30-3:30. It was like they did it on purpose to annoy the upper class neighbors that reside in those beautiful buildings.. it just ruined our trip andtho it's not the hotels fault, I wouldn't stay at this location on St Paul st.
We have had a wonderful stay this year again in the Lofts du Vieux Port over the holidays. Our loft was awesome and the staff made us feel special. A great start to the year 2017! Looking forward to our next visit this summer.
The Lofts du Vieux- Port in Montreal provided the best stay I've had in this city. i usually stay at hotels, but the Loft was so much better! you are largely left alone, but assistance is just a call away. Situated in the best part of Montreal for sight seeing and restaurants, the Lofts offer a spacious apartment with cooking facilities. I will definitely stay there again!
We stayed at the Lofts du Vieux Port in January this year. The 2 b/r and 2 bath apartment #605 was huge with full kitchen. And the 'decor' is suitably eclectic and rustic which reflects the history of old Montreal. But whilst appearing to 'have it all' there were some significant issues that made the stay less than desired. For 4 people, the kitchen was poorly stocked with cutlery, mugs, glassware. There should have been 4 mugs (minimum) but there were only 2 - when I asked for 2 more they were delivered in a timely manner but they were tea stained and one in particular looked very old (ans from the Auberge's own bistro?). Whilst the kitchen had 2 microwaves (why?) there was no serving spoon, no tongs, 1 wooden spoon, the salt shaker was empty, there was one towel that was supposed to be the hand towel/tea towel/oven mitt (but which did not dry anyway), and one dishwasher tablet. If Auberge wants people to use the kitchen for cooking during extended stays then it is necessary to equip it more generously. There was no soap dish in one bathroom, the ensuite had no towel hooks (as there is NO service of the lofts with stays less than 7 days, where are you supposed to hang the towels that you are required to reuse?), hot and cold taps were back-to-front in both bathrooms, there was no body lotion in either bathroom (but provided upon request ), and the doors creaked (fixed with WD40, also upon request). In the main bedroom, there was a huge skylight which let in lots of natural light during the day. But (as the apartment was on the top floor), there was no retractable shade or blind over the skylight so that external building lights made the bedroom very light and difficult to sleep in all through the night. And to top it off, there was a loud generator on the roof of the building that hummed all night and cut in during the night/morning. On check out, the staff did not enquire as to how we found our stay, whether we had enjoyed our time in Montreal etc etc. Perhaps he already knew the answer or wasn't interested in finding out. I was properly informed of the short walk to the loft and was told there were "some stairs" to climb. However, even though we are still able and fit, I did not think that there would be a total of 67 stairs to the top floor loft. There was assistance with the baggage up the stairs (and down when leaving- but, again, this was not automatically offered but provided upon my request) which was just as well. So some suggestions for the Auberge to make the stay of future customers in the lofts better: install a shade over the main bedroom skylight; provide a welcome pack which would include some T-bags, milk, coffee for the machine, and a list of nearby supermarkets with directions; equip the kitchen more generously; install towel hooks in the ensuite.. We felt quite abandoned by the Auberge and appeared to be treated like the Auberge di Vieux Port's poor relatives. I suspect the loft was not in the same class as other appointments and amenities in the hotel.
This was my second time at the Vieux-Port hotel, but my first staying in the Lofts and what a great decision that was. We stayed in the Deluxe King Suite and it was exactly as the photos had advertised. At check-in the bellhop and desk attendant were extremely helpful and friendly. We arrived in our room to find chocolate-covered strawberries and a hand-written card from the staff, a very nice touch on our anniversary. The apartment itself was large, clean and beautiful. The bed was a dream and the exposed brick and beams felt very Old-Montreal. We wished we were staying longer and were sad to leave. This is our favourite hotel in Montreal and we plan to be back in the new year!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lofts du Vieux-Port and would not hesitate to stay there again the next time we are in Montreal. The front desk personnel at both check-in and check-out were friendly, professional and helpful. Likewise, your valet parking personnel (Matthieu at check-in) were extremely helpful, with Matthieu helping with our luggage and also running back to the front desk to get us new door keys when the original ones failed to work. Room 704 was much bigger than we had expected and made us feel like we were staying in a condo, not just renting a hotel room. Truth be told, I think it's bigger than the last one bedroom condo I owned! While we weren't staying long enough to use the kitchen, having a full kitchen was most impressive. The more than ample closet space would have been plenty for anyone needing to stay for a longer period. Despite Saturday's rain, we had a wonderful mini-vacation and look forward to our next visit.
The check in for this Loft is around the block at the main hotel. The bellman takes you right to your room and the valet parks your car. They even deliver ice to your room. Great fast service! Staff was very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend this loft and hotel.
