You know you are in Montreal when your hotel serves afternoon tea. The Chateau Versailles, a former 19th century home, is ideally located in downtown Montreal. Shoppers will be happy to know that this boutique hotel is located within the Golden Square Mile on Sherbrooke Street West, home to high-end retailers, jewelers and fashion houses.
Rooms reflect Quebec design
The 65 rooms are brightly colored, reflecting the Joie de vivre of Montreal and the collaboration with Quebec artists, furniture makers and designers. Rooms are available with single beds, queen and king beds. My room, #309, is a deluxe queen and rents for $185, including a complimentary deluxe continental breakfast. Check the website for AAA rates and package deals.
Breakfast is served daily in Le Boudoir from 7:00 – 10:30 a.m. However, individual coffee service from Keurig is available in room, as is room service.
Additional amenities include afternoon tea, served from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. in Le Boudoir, cotton robes, Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries and access to a business center.
Keeping fit on the road
The Chateau Versailles offers a fitness center and sauna for its guests. Additionally, the property is pet-friendly for those who prefer to travel with man’s best friend. As of this review, the dog fee is $17 additional, per night.
Chateau Versailles offers complimentary wifi on the property and in the bedrooms. With my impending hip replacement surgery, I look at hotels from a different perspective. If you have trouble negotiating stairs, be aware that Chateau Versailles does not have an elevator. You’ll want to request a room on the first floor.
