My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel over a weekend. The location of the hotel is great because it's so close to many attractions and a short drive to downtown Montreal. The lobby area looked very nice and the service was prompt and professional. I was getting very excited about this hotel from the way it looked from... More

I had an excellent experience here.. very comfortable bed and a nice room. The tub was large and deep for running a nice bath. It was a great location for the Botanical Gardens and to get public transportation to city center.

We had a superb weekend! Our group of 40 or so stayed in the hotel August 22-24th and a had a blast! We went with the most high end, recently renovated rooms and they were, for the most part tidy and well-kept, at very competitive prices. Free parking, free wifi (not always super reliable but I was told by the... More

Hotel has a great location, and free parking! Free Wi-Fi. Walking distance to the metro station and Botanical Gardens. The rooms are a bit dated, the indoor pool could have been cleaner and the gym was very basic. They are doing renovations in the indoor pool area. Comfortable stay and quiet at night.

Stayed from 2-5 Sep for work. Good discount with federal government. Rooms are older and the one I stayed in (228) had a slight musty smell. Hotel is currently undergoing some renovations on the first floor by the gym. Olympic Park - Biodome, Insectarium, Olympic Tower, Cineplex theatres, Big O and Saputo Stadium - all within 5 minutes walk. Air... More

Basically, a solid hotel not far from downtown. Located close to the subway and within walking distance to the Olympic Stadium, botanical garden, Biodome and planetarium. Our room was recently renovated and reasonably clean with the usual amenities. One drawback is the lack of good restaurants in the area. We wanted to get simple coffee and rolls for breakfast and...

Don't let the outside appearance get you - it did for me - and to my surprise - the inside was different - better! It looks like this hotel is going through some progressive interior renovation - to meet model / contemporary décor - so there seems to be a mix feel. Location: Great for a family of 4 with... More
