We arrived by limo taxi from the airport. Most of the tourist attractions can be reached on foot from the hotel - it's a pretty central and convenient location. City buses run right past. The nearest Metro stop is 2-3 blocks away (5-10 minute walk). The main railway station (with car rental offices) is also 2-3 blocks away. We didn't need it, but the hotel has a parking garage.
There's loads of useful facilities around the hotel... a small snack and 7Eleven place right next door. Some good restaurants across the road (more later). It seems a pretty safe area even we we returned late at night.
The staff are friendly and helpful. We had a bit of a mixup on arrival - having requested a twin room and got given a double - but they quickly changed it and reissued keys.
The rooms are pretty standard issue for a chain like Novotel. Everything was comfortable and worked as it should. The rooms have free wirless/wifi internet access. They also have two internet terminals in Reception.
The bathroom was a decent size and had shower in bath.
We only ate breakfast at the hotel (included in our rate). Good selection of hot and cold buffet items, some local Canadian things and something different every day. For evening meals theres some great options across the road - The Keg Steakhouse is quite pricy but the food was amazing. The Old Spaghetti Factory has a wide range of family friendly meals at fair prices. We also had a round of beers at the BierMarkt. Loads more options at St Lawrence Market just down the road.
We made use of the indoor, heated hotel pool and jacuzzi (on one of the upper floors).
