Does anyone an email address for the Doubletree Montreal? An email address for the customer care people would be great but a general email address would work. Thanks

Just booked a stay for next year & they mentioned a remodeling project of public areas (should be done by June). Do GOLD members get free breakfast? Is the area pretty central. This will be our first visit.

The area is perfect - right across from Place des Arts.

It's a pretty good location. Access to underground is great especially in winter. It sits on top of a shopping complex with a couple restaruants, a supermarket, bank. A couple of blocks from Chinatown. Metro station is a block away. Old Montreal is within walking distance (especially when temperatures are good).

It was my go to until Hyatt couldn't keep it as a Hyatt. I would switch to Hilton it it guaranteed late checkout.

Gold Members are entitled to Free Continental Breakfast at a Doubletree, unless you get an upgrade to the Executive Lounge.

Do they serve breakfast inside the lounge now?

It never served breakfast in the lounge as a Hyatt; breakfast served at restaurant.

No idea where they serve breakfast at this property, I was just reminding the OP that the T&Cs for Gold Breakfast at a Doubletree limit full breakfast to Executive Lounge upgrades. - sorry for confusing things.

This hotel also doesn't have an "executive floor." The lounge itself is in the lobby. So in theory, getting "upgraded" to executive floor is arbitrary; one day it could be 20 rooms with club access and other days 50 rooms etc (not saying they are doing that but they could).

When it was a Hyatt, they would play around with award inventory by classifying rooms as club access rendering the base room award as unavailable.

I booked a room here for my brother and his spouse during a visit earlier this year. Before they arrived, I ensured an upgrade and inspected their room and the rebadged property's public spaces. I thought it was quite acceptable. The EL is, as mentioned upthread, on the lobby level. I was told the EL's evening service included complimentary beer and wine. My brother and spouse didn't partake, but they did enjoy their breakfast served in the EL.
