Review: The New York EDITION Hotel
I had about 24 hours in Montreal, as I was arriving from Tunis on Tunisair in the evening, and leaving the following evening to Munich on Lufthansa. Given that I was tired as heck and was just planning on working, I decided to stay at the Sheraton Montreal Airport. The paid rate for my one night stay was ~120USD.
The Sheraton has a free shuttle that picks up every 30 minutes. On the outside roadway the shuttles pick up under sign #9.
The shuttle arrived within five minutes of when I got there. It’s shared with the Aloft, though stops at the Sheraton first. The ride from the airport to the hotel took just a few minutes. I was surprised that the hotel was only a few stories, given that airport hotels are often built more vertically than this.
The lobby was modern, and reception was located to the left. There was about a 10 minute queue to check-in, though once it was my turn the process was quick. I always enjoy traveling through Montreal, as it feels like being on a different continent. Typically when I land in North America I always think to myself English will be the primary language, but that very much isn’t the case in Montreal, and I sort of love it.
The elevators were located on the opposite side of the lobby of reception, and my room was on the second floor. I took the elevator up a level, and then had to walk past all the conference rooms in order to get to the area where my room was located. Almost every time I walked through there they had either a breakfast, lunch, or dinner spread for one of the conference rooms, so if your room is in this direction and you’re hungry… 😉
After walking through the conference hall I turned right, where my room, #249, was then located on the right.
As you can see, the hotel is in a donut shape, and is surprisingly big.
I had been upgraded to a suite, which is pretty rare at airport Sheratons, in my experience. Inside the entrance was the unusually shaped living room, which featured a couch, chair, and dresser with a TV on top of it.
In the corner of the room was a desk with a comfortable office chair.
My room had a view of the airport in the distance, though since I was only on the second floor, views were somewhat limited.
There was a welcome amenity waiting for me next to the coffee machine, including sparkling water, popcorn, and fresh fruit.
The room had two full bathroom. Clearly this suite was originally designed to be two separate rooms, but was later converted into a suite. This bathroom featured a sink, toilet, and a walk-in shower.
Back in the living room, a door led into the bedroom. The bedroom had the typical Sheraton signature bed, which I find to be really comfortable.
There was another TV, another desk, and also a chair in the corner by the window.
This bathroom featured a sink, toilet, and a shower/tub combo.
Overall it was a perfectly serviceable room that was pretty typical of an airport Sheraton. I’m of course appreciative of the extra space thanks to the upgrade I received. The wifi in the room was fast and free.
As an SPG Platinum member I had access to the club lounge. The club lounge was located on the ground floor, just down the hall from reception.
Eligible guests could access the lounge using their key card, and then there was no registration in the lounge itself.
Here are the hours for the Sheraton Montreal Airport club lounge:
The club lounge was a pretty nice space, especially for an airport Sheraton. It featured a variety of seating options, including couches, dining tables, communal tables, etc.
There were also two PCs with a printer.
I only had the chance to check out the lounge for breakfast, and found the selection to be decent.
There was Starbucks coffee in canisters, an espresso machine, fresh fruit, hardboiled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, pastries, bagels, toast, and two hot dishes.
I’d say that’s slightly above average for North American Sheraton properties.
In terms of the hotel’s other facilities, there was a good size gym, though it was pretty full when I visited. So I just got a picture of the treadmills, which as an avgeek have the best views of any treadmills I’ve ever seen, as they face the Montreal Airport runway.
The hotel also had an indoor pool, plus an outdoor deck that I imagine is pretty seasonal.
Sheraton Montreal Airport bottom line
Airport Sheratons are pretty consistent for the most part, and this one was no exception. The rooms were clean and well maintained (though not especially modern), the wifi was fast, the club lounge was nice, and I found the staff friendly. If overnighting near Montreal Airport, this is a great option, in my opinion.
