    La Tour Centre-Ville Hotel

    Hi! I am going to visit Montreal for 8 days around late-August. I have never been to your fine city. Just in case I would get lost in Montreal, so I booked with La Tour Centre-Ville Hotel for my initial stay in the downtown area. I will probably find another hotel to stay after I can get around the city. But thatí»s not a sure thing because my goal is to see at least 10 ladies during my trip. So I would rather invest my money on ladies than hotel. And here are my questions. Is La Tour Hotel a bit run down? Is it SP-Friendly? Will SPs refuse to come to this hotel because it is obviously a low-budged hotel? Other than outcall services, I would love to pay a visit to some incall places. But I caní»t speak any French. Would that be a problem to book a session? Could you guys recommend a few reputable outcall and incall services? By the way, which strip club has hottest girls? Thank you very much!!

    I`ve never stayed at La Tour Centreville but if you want a decent hotel and to save money at the same time, use Priceline or Hotwire and bid for a 3* downtown hotel; hotels in the category include the Holiday-Inn, Delta Montreal, etc.

    You can`t get lost in downtown Montreal unless you have a really bad sense of direction but pick up a laminated map to get your bearings; I like the orange coloured ``Montreal Fastrack`` by MapArt, only CAD 7 at the local convenience store.

    I do outcalls only, its safer, more comfortable and IMHO that`s really where the quality is. For the most part, I use Asservissante but other reputable lower priced agencies include Fantasme and Betterhalf. It might also be a good idea to include several appointments with the higher end escorts, check out AllissaMontreal, companions and of course, the indys at French Kiss Society.
    I used to be schizophrenic, but we're OK now.

    La Tour Centre Ville is a bit run-down. Not a bad location, but it has more of a dormitory feel than a hotel. I have never had an escor trefuse to meet me there, but have stayed there only a couple of times, and I am not sure I would return. There are better values in Montreal. One of my favorites is the Wyndham accross the street, where rooms for C$130 can sometimes be found. Also there is a nearby Travelodge, on Rene Levesque, that looks pretty good. One of my favorites is the Radisson in Longeuil, right off the metro line, but it is on the South Shore, and some ladies will impose a surcharge of $20 for the extra cab fare (surcharge should be C$20, NOT C$20 per hour). I don't like priceline or hotwire, because you don't know which hotel you will get, and it is more important to me to get a hotel where the lady will have no trouble getting up the elevator (some hotels have security that prevents that, soem lock their doors at 11PM, etc.).

    I used to be worried about not knowing which hotel I would get using Priceline and Hotwire but after using these sites for quite a few times, I have come to realise that my worries were unfounded. None of the 3* Montreal hotels that use Priceline or Hotwire have the keycard or locking of doors problem, in fact I believe among all the downtown Montreal hotels, only the Loews Vogue and Best Western Europa have such policies. BTW, the Wyndham Montreal is the 3.5* hotel on Hotwire so you can't really go wrong there.

    I would love to stay at Wyndham. It is one of few hotel chains that always offer better values. But I called them the other night. They quoted me C$200+ tax per night. That price is hard for me to swallow. The rate I got from La Tour is C$105+tax. ThatíŽs almost $100 differences. As for La Tour Centre Ville, I found a few pictures of the hotel. It seems to me they have an extremely small lobby and everyone has to pass through the front desk to access the elavator. When a SP come by, I would think itíŽs hard not to get noticed by the hotel staffs. By the way, I am very interested in Travelodge you mentioned. Do you know the rate? Thank you for your valuable info!

    Becareful with AllissaMontreal. I would not characterize this agency as a high class provider because you may not get the girl you see in the picture on the website. Be very suspicious about those blurred pictures posted on its website. I would not recommend it. Please review the ``Montreal Trip Reviews`` thread.

    Speaking of hotel, my friend once stayed at Travelodge on Rene Levesque street. He said that it`s a crappy 2 stars hotel that looks like a run down dormitory. Its external appearance doesn`t look appealing to me at all as I walked by it. He said he would not return to it next time. He liked the MariTime hotel which he stayed during the Thanksgiving weekend for $79CAD. It costs more in the Summer though. One hotel no one seems to mention is the DuFort hotel which is a 4 stars hotel at a reasonable price. It looks very appealing. You may be able to get a room with as low as $99CAD. I stayed in a 2-double bed classy room there on Friday few weeks ago, and I paid $129CAD which is less than $100U.S. This is a very service provider friendly hotel in a sense that no one questions anyone, and no one knows who is who when you walk into the elevator. The main entrance is 24/24, and there is only one hotel staff working after midnight. Yes, you have to kind of walk pass the main counter, but no one would recognize who is who anyway because there are 100s of people walking in/out. Further more, the staff is not always present at the counter, and not the same staff is working at the counter everytime. The provider can walk in and out as if she is staying there. I never had the keycard problem. This hotel is almost right on St. Catherine street and few blocks away from Crescent street.

    I agree with the other gentlemen about priceline and hotwire. You don`t know what hotel you`re going to get. Once you`re booked, you can not change it. I prefer to use travelocity.com or discounthotels.net. You can change your booking or cancel it 24 hours in advance without being penalized.

    latour centerville

    twisted,
    this is a really nice hotel for the price. It has a pool and workout room upstairs, and a full kitchen in each room. This can save even more money for women, as you can buy food at the grocery store and cook for yourself, saving money on restaurants. They are very s.p. friendly, and you get all this for about $75 dollars american per night. I have never stayed at the wyndham, and I am sure it is quite nice, but it is a little pricey for my taste. The travellodge on rene levesque is a dump compared to the latour centerville, and the price is about the same.

    Maybe I should have indicated from the start that, given my general preference for independents, I have never used the services of AllissaMontreal or companions before and was just merely giving a list of reputable agencies. However to be fair to AllissaMontreal, this agency has received many favorable reviews in the past and many highly regarded escorts like Emma, Giselle, Lauren, Melanie, Racquelle, NikkiBlueEyes, Caitlyn have all worked for that agency at one point of time. Also, the two recent negative reviews of AllissaMontreal were of the same escort, Lila who seemed to have gained one too many pounds since her last photo shoot. So while I agree that one should exercise some caution when dealing with this agency, I wouldn`t write it off entirely.

    I`ve taken a look at the Hotel Dufont and I`ll be hardpressed to describe it as a four star hotel. At the very most, it would be a 3* star hotel at the level of the Holiday Inn Centreville or DeltaMontreal, the worst hotels in the Hotwire and Priceline 3* category. Anyhow, I digress, my point really is that you don`t have to worry about the quality of hotels that you`ll get under Priceline or Hotwire so long as you choose the 3* or better categories although the Loews Vogue has been known to appear occasionally in the 4* category on Priceline but what the hell, if I can get the Loews Vogue for USD80 at this time of the year, I`ll meet the escort at the lobby.

    Obviously, there is less flexibilty in terms of cancelling when booking with Priceline and Hotwire but don`t forget how much $$$ you`ll be saving. I ran a check on the 3.5* hotel on Hotwire which is the Wyndham Montreal for late August and its going for about USD55. Even if you use sites like Travelocity or Expedia, the best rate you can get on the Wyndham would be around USD 100. Stay for eight nights and you save USD 360 or a nice two hour appointment with a high priced escort. Furthermore, the Wyndham goes for a higher price on Hotwire because its kinda obvious which hotel it is esp. with all the customer reviews which they post on the Hotwire site. Bid up to USD80 on Priceline for a 4* and I suspect that you`ll get at least the Hilton and possibly the Omni or Sofitel. Personally, I would recommend staying at a 4* hotel. Even if you are not that picky about your surroundings, the escorts appreciate it and when they`re happy, they`ll make sure that you`re happy too

    Bottomline: Hotel quality for Priceline and Hotwire is not really an issue for 3* and better categories but you have to make sure your travel plans are confirmed before booking with them.

    Let me pipe in, you are foolish not to use Priceline. I have done it three times: I put in $50. US for a 3 star hotel, and got the Holiday Inn select for my asking price. It is a great hotel, and never had a problem with SP.

    Downtown Montreal is small. You can't go wrong if you pick the a 3 Star hotel or better.

    The only reason you should not use PriceLine is:

    1. It would freak you out to wind up in a smoking room.

    2. You are traveling with a Male friend and under no circumstances would you be comfortable sharing a bed.

    3. There is a chance you would have to cancel your reservation with your hotel.

    Holiday Inn Select has the elevator on the ground floor, but the reception desk is on the 2nd floor.
    So there is no chance of an SP being stopped by anyone.
    I have used it twice (through Priceline) wihtout any problems.

    Thanks for all your inputs. Sorry to bug you all. But I have some other questions about Montreal SP experience. What if the SP I booked dosn't look appealing to me after her arrival, am I allowed to send her back with a small tips? What is a reasonable tips in Montreal? I am very interested in Asservissante and Fantasme outcalls. How do they handle such situation? And what is your backup plan would be when you encounter such situation? Simply call the same agnecy to send another SP?

    By the way, I came across a message from placestostay.com. Right now they have a special rate for Travelodge Montreal Centre-ville. The rate is $32USD per night during late Aug. The rate is so low it's hard to believe to be ture. Do you guys know any about placestostay.com? Is this a scam? Thank you!

    For the lower priced agencies, CAD20 would be sufficient. But its best to ask about their cancellation policy when making the appointment but you shouldn't have any problems should you decide to cancel, just be polite and tell them that you changed your mind. Also, even if the escort is a 0 when the agency promised you a 10, be a nice guy and let the girl in the room before you tell her that you have decided to cancel. Don't embarass her and yourself by conducting the conversation in the hallway or with the room door open. [/B][/QUOTE]

    I don't know what date you're booking but if you look carefully, it says the starting rate is USD32, this is highly misleading since the actual rate can and often is very different. To get the actual rate, you have to click on the "Book It" icon. Anyhow, just read the fine print on the site, confirm the reservation with the hotel and you'll be fine. Assuming you're on at least fairly good terms with your credit card company, you can always dispute the charges shoud they try to scam you.

    travelodge

    I agree that you should check the details of the reservation. I noticed some travel sites offering specials for the travelodge, but it is a pre-paid, no cancellations, reservation, much like priceline or hotwire.
    Also, having stayed at the travelodge, I'm not sure if $32US is that much of a bargain! I think the rate I paid last winter may have been in that range (with a standard reservation). The room I stayed in was very small. Even the bed was not a regular bed, but was built so that it was right on the floor, with the tv being mounted at an angle on a bracket on the wall near the ceiling, so that you had to be laying in bed in order to view the tv. Bathroom was also tiny. All that being said, it provided basic amenities at a good location. I think they even provided breakfast at the hotel restaurant in the price.

    Marriott Chateau Champlain
    Loews Vogue
    Omni Mont Royal
    Hotel Sofitel
    Hilton Bonaventure

    3 Star

    Sheraton le Centre
    Novotel Montreal
    Wyndham Montreal
    Delta Montreal
    Holiday Inn Select
    Crowne Plaza

    I don't understand why Le Centre Sheraton is a 3* hotel on Priceline, seems more like a 4* to me. Maybe I'm a little biased since I got free munchies and drinks in compensation for the housekeeping staff taking a tad bit too long to clean my room or was it the nice, spacious room w/ a great view of Mont-Royal and an in-room safe large enough to fit a laptop? In any case, its a great place to stay at with really speedy elevators (think there were six of them) which were a good distance away from the reception and if I remember correctly, there are four entrances, one on each side of the hotel allowing the escort to easily bypass the front desk. Good room service too, they guarantee service within 30 mins or its free. Only thing I found odd was the big bird, think it was a parrot near the fitness room but who had time to hit the gym anyway?

    For some reason, the hotels sometimes assigns a smoking room to Priceline customers even when there are non-smoking rooms available; actually it seems to happen quite often. So, one way to maximize your chances of getting a non-smoking room is to call the hotel once you get your confirmation from Priceline. Make sure that the hotel puts you up for a non-smoking room. They will usually agree and if they refuse for any other reason apart from the hotel being fully booked, call up Priceline and the good folks there will make it right.

    Yes, I have had priceline automatically reserve a smoking room. The irony, is their site claims by default all rooms are non-smoking. I had no problem changing the room the first two times. However, the second time the hotel was booked, and I had to take the smoking room. Not that big a deal.

    But yes, always call the hotel directly after the reservation. They will give you the hotels reservation number, and give you an opportunity to book the best room possible prior to arriving in Montreal.
