This is a modern hotel located in the heart of Montreal. It is centrally located, putting you within walking distance of most of what there is to see in the city.
The room was sparkling clean, large, and in excellent condition. However, there was no view to speak of, but being downtown it is not to be expected.
The staff, at all levels and in all departments were friendly, helpful, and first rate, going out of their way for guests.
Most impressive was the small restaurant that I would rate on par with one in a luxury hotel. The food and service were exceptional. Everyone working there takes pride in the restaurant, and it shows. I had breakfast and dinner there. I also had an off-hour, mid-afternoon lunch with the food and service being well above average. Breakfast was great.
In short, this is more like a boutique hotel than a chain hotel. I was very impressed.
The only reason I do not give it 5 stars is that it simply does not have the appointments or amenities of a luxury hotel.
