The value of our hotel stay was unparalleled in our visit throughout Canada in August, which included Montreal, Gananoque and Niagara Falls. We debated for weeks over what hotel to book, and we were looking closer towards Old Montreal. But the location of the Hotel Crystal was superb for shopping and sight-seeing and touring McGill for our high school junior. The room was lovely and the staff was superb. The pool and the hot tub view were our highlights, and the lifeguard staff was the best we've had. As other raters stated, it was also extremely quiet! We highly recommend this hotel.
