The Delta Hotel Montreal is just a block away from the Hilton Garden Inn Montreal and shares the same good location. The Delta brand has been bought by Marriott two years ago. It was one of Canada’s biggest hotel chains. So far the Delta hotels are partially integrated into Marriott Rewards – you do receive the benefits based on your Marriott Elite membership. However you can’t earn Marriott Rewards points yet or redeem for stays. This is supposed to change soon. As with Marriott’s integration of Protea we may see some great Category 1 redemptions coming up.
The Delta Hotel Montreal became my favorite hotel during my time in Montreal because it does the basics very well. I checked in early and the front desk was extremely friendly and had no issues letting me check in early. The room was in excellent shape – a wide triangular space with a huge bed. I loved the bed comforter – it was warm but not overly so. The bathroom was huge and the shower pressure fantastic.
The free Internet clocked in at 10Mbit+ and allowed me to work just fine. There was a work desk and chair that could serve as an office. In addition there was a patio and great view over Montreal.
I even liked the breakfast somewhat – it had a few higher quality items like good bagels, fresh grapefruit and a number of made-to-order egg dishes (since I do not eat eggs most American breakfasts are a though affair for me).
For my late check out I had to negotiate a bit back and forth and finally got a complimentary 1.30 PM checkout. Granted this is certainly not a published benefit for Marriott Golds but in a hotel that was maybe 20% full that’s a lot of hand- wringing.
Given the depreciated Canadian Dollar rates are often just around $120 per night.
