Background and Location

I stayed at the Montreal Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel for a 1-night stay during a connection. The property is directly connected to the airport, so no shuttle is needed which is nice. It’s right next to the U.S. departures, but not too far of a walk from the other departure areas as well.

Rates for the Marriott Montreal Airport (In-Terminal) start at approximately 350 CAD per night or 30,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points but can vary depending on the specific date. I work with a travel agency, Fora Travel, and can assist in booking hotel stays. Feel free to email me at or fill out the contact form at the bottom of this post if you have any inquiries.

Takeoff Points

Pros: Excellent rooms, a decent concierge lounge, one of the better airport hotels I’ve stayed in.
Cons: Perhaps the insulation to the airport could be a bit better, and the curtains could have blocked out more light.
Takeoff Point: A solid option if you need to be at the airport with comfortable rooms, a concierge lounge, and even a pool, along with direct access to the airport terminal.

Arrival & Lobby

After getting off my Air Canada Jazz flight from New York and clearing customs, I wasn’t exactly sure where to go, but I asked a friendly airport employee and she told me to walk down towards the left direction until the end. Simple enough. Once I started my walk, then signs started popping up showing the Marriott.

Once you arrive at the part of the terminal for U.S. flights and see their check-in decks, that means you’re almost there.

Entering the Marriott

You’ll arrive at the ground floor mini-lobby, which features the valet area, and you’ll want to take the escalators/elevators to the 4th floor, where the actual lobby is.

Upon arriving in the 4th floor lobby, there is the front desk which is also in front of the guest room elevators. I was quickly helped by a friendly associate and the Platinum Welcome Gift I chose was the USD 10 food credit. I was also informed that I would have Concierge Lounge Access on the 9th floor.

Dining and Events

To the left of the elevators, is the main restaurant, Bijou Resto Bar, which is open from 6:30 AM to 11:00 PM. I ended up using my $10 credit to go towards some Pork Belly Tacos. The tacos were quite tasty but on the pricey side!

Behind the front desk is a small sundries store, as well as Café Illy, which is a Starbucks-like coffee bar that features sandwiches, salads, baked goods, and snacks. Room service is also available from 6:30 AM to 11 PM.

Towards the back of the lobby is plenty of conference space.

The Room

Guest rooms are located on floors 5-9, and my room was located on the 8th floor and had a Runway View of the airport which was cool.

Upon entering the room, there is a wide entryway and a closet to the right. Inside the closet was an iron/board, as well as 2 robes and slippers, which were nice touches.

Next to the closet is a counter with a Nespresso machine. That also pleasantly surprised me, as I don’t think I’ve stayed at a Marriott with a Nespresso. Capsules are provided, as well as tea bags. There is also a mini fridge for personal use, though there is a bottle of champagne in there for purchase. There are also 2 wines, Kit Kat and Pringles for purchase.

To the left is the bathroom, and it’s quite spacious for a standard three-piece bathroom. There’s a large countertop and a standup shower. A plus is that the water pressure in the shower is quite good. The only con was that the glass wall was a bit short, thus allowing water to splash onto the bathroom floor. Also, there is a frosted glass wall separating the shower and bedroom, but at the very top the glass is transparent, which I found a bit odd.

Toiletries (Shampoo, Shower Gel, and Conditioner) are provided in refillable bottles, in the standard Marriott scent from This Works. There is also a bottle of lotion by the sink. Additionally, there were also cotton swabs & rounds plus a shower cap. I was also pleasantly surprised by the new hairdryer that was provided. There was still one of the accessories in plastic wrap, and the hairdryer itself felt like no one had ever used it.

Continuing towards the room, it’s quite spacious, with a king-sized bed and long sofa lounger.

There is also a huge bench underneath the TV area for seating or storage of items. Next to the TV, is a large desk with an office chair. A total of 4 small bottles of water were provided, which was appreciated.

I did find the see-through glass at the top of the shower to be an interesting/odd design feature.

I had a view of the runway and airport gate, and while it was fun to see the planes, if you are a light sleeper, you might want a different room. When planes would turn on their engines and/or take off, you could hear the engines.

Overall, for an airport hotel, the room was quite nice and exceeded my expectations. The room was quite clean and felt fresh.

Concierge Lounge

On the 9th floor is the Concierge Lounge. Online, it says that the concierge lounge is closed on the weekends, but it actually is open every day of the week currently. Breakfast is served in the lounge from 6:30 am to 10 am, and there are hors d’oeuvres from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm and an honor bar from 5:30 pm to 10 pm. The lounge itself is open 24 hours, and you can make a tea/coffee or grab some bottled drinks.

I visited for breakfast and found it to be pretty good for a lounge breakfast. Hot offerings included scrambled eggs, a frittata, bacon, and waffles. There were also pastries, breads, cereals, deviled eggs, smoked salmon, fruits, and more. I also enjoyed the Violet Blueberry Banana Milk Smoothie they had.


For an airport hotel, the Marriott has a nice amount of amenities.

On the 8th floor, there is a 24-hour fitness center, and also it shares an entrance to the Spa. Altispa offers massages, facials, body scrubs, and more.

Also, there’s an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool that’s open from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM.

A cool feature is that there is a flight simulator experience called AviaSim, that’s open Tuesday-Sunday from May 8, 2024, to November 8, 2024. It features an A320 flight simulator where you can learn to fly in a real-size cockpit with the support of a professional flight instructor. A one-hour package starts at 139 CAD.

The Verdict

Overall, I found the Marriott Montreal Airport to be great for a one-night stay during a layover. It’s one of the better airport hotels I’ve stayed at with nicely appointed rooms, a good concierge lounge, and an array of amenities like a pool & spa.
