The Delta Hotels Trois Rivieres Conference Centre, by Marriott, was finally reviewed. We were not disappointed.
We didn’t know Trois-Rivières and enjoyed spending some time there, especially since the atmosphere was rather festive in the city despite COVID-19, while Montreal was a bit gloomy.
We booked our room at the Delta Hotels Trois Rivieres Conference Centre by Marriott a few days before arrival. The hotel belongs to the Delta Hotels branch of Marriott and is a Category 3 hotel.
Due to the low rate at this time, we chose to pay for our room in cash using the Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card to get 5 points per dollar.
The Delta Hotels Trois Rivieres Conference Centre is ideally located, as it is central, and near the St. Lawrence River.
The closest international airport is Quebec City’s Jean-Lesage International Airport, which is 120 km away, while Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport is about 150 km by road.
Around the hotel
Being in the regional capital of the Mauricie region, we weren’t sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the lively and friendly atmosphere in the city centre, especially in this special context.
The surrounding area is full of restaurants, microbreweries and bars. On the cultural side, the diversity is interesting, with the Old Prison of Trois-Rivières, the Pierre Boucher Museum or the Ursuline Museum with its garden in the old Trois-Rivières.
Finally, the walk along the harbour park is relaxing and pleasant.
Reception at the Delta Hotels Trois Rivieres Conference Centre,
The reception hall is large and very bright! No chance of it getting too crowded. What’s more, the mirrored black ceiling accentuates this impression. Two large columns and a large suspension light frame the three reception counters.
Direct access to the Congress Centre is possible from inside the hotel. Different lounges are set-up on either side of the hall, some more suitable for groups…
… others for lonely people. Everything is tastefully decorated and the materials are of high quality.
Two high tables are also available with electrical outlets. There’s something to suit everyone.
Our room, number 1008 is located on the 10th floor. The style is modern in the corridors, we liked it, and they are well lit.
When we enter the room, the first thing we see on the right is a closet with a few hangers.
Right next to the closet, on the right side, is a cabinet with a fridge at the bottom. On the counter, a Keurig coffee machine with its accessories, and a wrapped ice bucket. I appreciate the extra milk pods in big quantity, as I like to have lattes!
A large long mirror follows as well as 3 coat hooks.
For this time, no upgrade – you can’t win every time – but a room with two queen size beds, separated by a single central coffee table hanging on the wall.
There are 2 free bottles of water, a clock radio, a telephone, as well as a power outlet and two USB sockets on the wall.
Finally, a 3-in-1 stylish cabinet completes the room. It is a desk with a classic chair (not the most suitable for working, but suitable for a short time sitting), a flat screen TV and a drawer to put a suitcase.
Finally, the view of the city from the room is unobstructed, especially since the weather was beautiful that day!
The bathroom is located at the entrance of the room, facing the wardrobe. Its design, in shades of wood and white, gives the room and space a feeling of “clarity”.
The sliding shower door opens on one side only. Small inconvenience, since it is easy to get water out of the shower especially with children. It seems to me that installing the shower head on the right side of the wall, opposite the shower door, would have limited this.
The hotel services
As the parking is not free (12$ CAD/d), we preferred to look around for a public parking space. It only took us a few minutes to find one, even though it was crowded in the main street.
Our Titanium Elite status allowed us to enjoy a free continental breakfast.
The entrance to the restaurant is located right next to the reception counters on the ground floor. We waited for a member of staff to come and welcome us and seat us.
Although a little dark for my taste, the mix of modern and baroque decor with its black tones and wooden materials give a warm and cozy atmosphere to the place.
The tables are distanced as required by current health regulations. Our waitress brought us the menus. No buffet but an “à la carte” breakfast with extra options for children. The offer was quite satisfactory for our family.
With children, the swimming pool becomes a must for us in hotels. The measures in place allowed for a maximum of 5 people in the room. So we had the opportunity to enjoy it as a family.
The swimming pool is heated and overlooks the outside. Wrapped towels are provided. A few tables and chairs are available and a changing room is available for you to change. There was also a large jaccuzi on the side. I had found my spot.
Spa and fitness room
The Delta Hotels Trois Rivieres Conference Centre offers access to the Millenia Urban Spa for a wide range of services.
The gym is equipped with weights and a variety of modern cardio training equipment. The measures in place required those using a machine to put the sign back in place after use so that it could be disinfected again.
Meeting rooms and other events
The Delta Hotels Trois Rivieres Conference Centre is a perfect hotel to stay at for conferences or events since the Congress Centre is located next door, decorated in the same spirit as the hotel is very modern.
