Good value hotel in Montreal?

I'm planning to spend a few days in Montreal. Any recommendation for a place near a subway station for $120-$150/night?

Thx.

Do you want to be downtown? Looking for nightlife or tourist activities?

Is downtown close to Old Montreal? Yes, it'll be tourist activity. It'll be my first time going to Montreal.

The downtown area is right next to old Montreal. You won't get a nice hotel downtown for under $150 CAD. If your pricing was USD, then your upper limit is $200 CAD which gets you out of the 2 star properties and has some options from smaller boutique hotels.

Here's a good thread discussion the Marriott options in Montreal. I would expect them to be $250+ CAD Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Montreal [Merged threads]

Maybe in winter or you have a corporate rate. Summer hotel rates are 2x/3x winter.

I just got back from Montreal, and stayed at this new hotel:
https://www.marriott.com/hotels/trav...real-downtown/

Got a rate of $150 CAD per night. It's within a 10-15 minute walking distance from old Montreal and many restaurants, a short cab ride from the downtown core of Montreal. A very nice hotel, brand new & spacious rooms. Not the greatest neighbourhood, saw a few panhandlers on the streets, nothing different than other parts of downtown Montreal. Not really an issue for me since most of my time was elsewhere in Montreal.

L'Appartement Hotel and Chateau Versailles are too mostly good non-chain hotels that should fit the budget of the OP, except perhaps for festival weeks in the summer.

A couple I've stayed at in the past 12 months at $150 or less tax-inclusive:

Le Meridien Versailles - $126+tax (weeknight, July) - they had good promotional rates throughout last summer and I decided to bite. Small, but comfortable rooms. Near Guy-Concordia station.
Candlewood Suites Montreal Downtown Centre - $88+tax (weeknight, April) - semi-mattress run for an IHG promo when I was in town visiting a friend. Very basic, but also very cheap. Near Champ-de-Mars station.

Err, new hotel? A quick check revealed this property was re-flagged from the "Lord Berri". While I too like the area (UQAM, Saint Denis) its a 15 mn walk east of downtown. Convenient for travelers near the central bus station and Berri Metro

Correct, it used to be the Lord Berri, but they completely gutted the building, and now it is a "new" hotel post renovation. It is actually quite nice inside, arguably one of the best Fairfield Inns I've stayed in for quite some time!! Felt more like a Courtyard.

Chateau Versailles

Chateau Versailles (NB not the Meridien) has a promo rate through Tourism Montreal which includes breakfast:

I just checked the rate for June 11th to 14th and I'm getting roughly C$220/night with taxes. Am I not better off going with other hotels at that price?

For some out-of-the-box ideas for the summer, consider summer accommodations at McGill University (La Citadelle, Carrefour Sherbrooke, New Residence Hall) from ~$120/night + tax or Airbnb. For more traditional hotels, I think the Best Western Ville Marie is reasonably priced for how good the location is.
