This hotel is well located to see many of the sites in the downtown area. Nice looking pool on the top floor but we did not have time to use it (maybe next time). Lots of small ethnic restaurants in the neighbourhood. Easy walk to The museum of Fine Arts, McCord and Redpath museums as well as other sites in the downtown area. just up the hill from the festival sites at Place des Arts. If you are driving, be sure to park in the pull off area out front and register first. You need your room key to get the garage door to open so you can drive in. Indoor parking is nice and seems secure and well light. Even room to lock up your bike.
