Novotel Montreal Aeroport Hotel Review: A mere six miles from Trudeau International Airport and a fifteen-minute taxi ride to downtown Montreal, this hotel has the sleek, contemporary design that Novotel hotels are known for. The most frequent guests are, of course, travelers looking for a good night's sleep before an early flight. That said, this is not your run-of-the-mill airport hotel. The ground floor sets the tone for this urban chic hotel. A lounge area features a stone fireplace, book shelves, a long modernist sofa and a warm ambiance. On the same floor are the hotel bar and restaurant, Trio. The bar sports flat-screen TV sets, cushioned bar stools and a granite bar, while the restaurant serves Quebec-inspired fare at both booths and open, airy tables. Rooms have the same contemporary flair, though a bit more low-key. The multipurpose headboard doubles as a night stand and large flat-screen TVs face beds. Walls are painted in complementary shades of gray and beige. Bathrooms feature glassed-in showers, bathtubs and unique, tabletop sinks. Wireless Internet is available for free. Due to the hotel’s airport proximity, the clientele is largely international and constantly coming and going.
