Family-friendly hotels in Montréal

Summer is just around the corner, school will soon be out and you and your brood need a vacation. With its wall-to-wall festivals, countless attractions, parks, sports, and general good times going on, Montréal makes the perfect family getaway. To help you figure out where you and your crew can camp out—whether you’re on a budget or will be splurging—we’ve put together a list of family-friendly hotels in the city.

Old Montréal

History, architecture and culture are just some of what Montréal’s old city has going for it. What about a zip line, street performers, the Montréal Science Centre, an IMAX theatre, rappelling, remote-controlled sailboats, cruises… hey, there’s not enough room to write it all in! But most important, here’s where you can stay while getting in on the action:


Le Place d’Armes Hôtel Suites: Let everyone enjoy a little ooh-la-la in the luxury establishment. Get 50% off a second room when you book a room or suite and enjoy breakfast with room rate. Other perks include a welcome gift for kids, in-room movies and popcorn, tuck-in service with milk and cookies, free extra cot or crib, mini-fridges in rooms, WiFi, on site restaurant and babysitting services. Liking it, parents?

Marriott Springhill Suites: Parking it here comes with a Montréal Family Pass, a fun gift bag for the little guys, pop corn, beverages and other surprises, a free in-room movie, full buffet breakfast, Wi-Fi and the access to the indoor pool. Yes!

Lofts du Vieux-Port: If creature comforts, space and privacy top your family vacay list, these swanky lofts, with old stone walls and warm woods, are a lovely alternative for smaller families.

Le Saint-Sulpice: Families of up to four get to slumber in high style here, and kitchenettes come with mini-fridge and microwave. Breakfast included in room rate, cribs available and on-site restaurant (with outdoor dining), a handy alternative when the little guys get hungry. Board games and babysitting too, plus the Notre-Dame Basilica is a mere hop and skip away.


SpringHill Suites Old Montreal: With buffet breakfasts, an indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi, the SpringHill Suites Old Montréal will be a hit with everyone. Sleeping options accommodate up to five, and you can enjoy connecting rooms too. Other perks include kitchenettes with microwaves and mini-fridges, cribs, babysitting arrangements and coin-operated laundry, ’cause sometimes travelling with the tykes gets messy.


If you like to be at the heart of the action, Montréal’s downtown hotels are for you. Festivals, shopping, museums, restaurants, people galore and so much more will keep everyone, from tots to teens, absolutely bedazzled.

Ritz-Carlton Montréal: If your collective style is swanky and downtown, you’ll love the Ritz-Carlton. On top of 50% off your connecting room, kids 13 and under eat breakfast for free, plus you receive the Montréal Family Pass (for up to 3 adults and 6 children). And in the totally-cute category, babies receive a snuggly stuffed lion and adorable sleeper.

Hôtel Le Crystal
: The Crystal lets families choose from Deluxe, Crystal, Executive Suite or Penthouse rooms, and they can enjoy breakfast at its La Coupole restaurant. Surprise gifts, cookies, milk and popcorn, plus access to the 12th floor saltwater indoor pool with certified lifeguards and games for kids. Ahhhhh!

Le Centre Sheraton Montréal: See Montréal’s top attractions with a free Family Pass, snack on homemade cookies and milk, and when you order an adult meal at the restaurant, kids 12 and under eat free. Plus, you can take advantage of complimentary upgrades, an in-room fridge and sweeping views of the city.


The Omni Mont-Royal Hotel – Goodie bags, 24-hour room service, on-site café with kids’ menu, plus rooms that can sleep four and help with babysitting arrangements are all part of the package at the Omni.

La Tour Belvedere Apartment Hotel: With affordable rates, spacious rooms and fully-equipped kitchens, this is a great option for families on a budget and who like to cook together.

Candlewood Suites Montréal: With rooms where up to six can snooze, fully-equipped kitchens (the Desjardins shopping mall with supermarket is three blocks away) and coin-operated laundry, the Candlewood is a great bet for you and your busy crew.


Marriott Residence Inn Downtown:  Furnished apartments, fresh and free buffet breakfasts, fully equipped kitchens, a fitness centre and you can bring along Fido (it’s a pet-friendly hotel). The kids will love it!

Marriott Residence Inn Westmount: Located on a sweet residential street on the west end of downtown Montreal, the Marriott Residence Inn Westmount is a home away from home with its full kitchenettes and comfy rooms. The subway, shopping, restaurants—everything for you and your gang is easy to get to.

Trylon Apartments: Cozy, peaceful and secure, the Trylon Apartments offer families affordable accommodations just next to Montréal’s major festivals. Other perks include fully-equipped kitchenettes, an indoor saltwater pool, sauna, fitness room, lounge area and rooftop terrace.

Quartier international (between downtown and Old Montréal)

Situated between Old Montréal and downtown, the Quartier international lets you live the best of Montréal’s historic and dynamic worlds, and is home to some of the city’s most spectacular monuments, statues and sculptures.


InterContinental Montréal: Offering a suite with a separate room (so parents can catch some Zzzs and get a little privacy too), the Intercontinental features surprise gift bags, a special menu for kids and a teddy for toddlers.
