“Room small but nice, but you can hear everything in the hallway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We stayed here the weekend before and through New Year's Eve. The staff were friendly, the room was nice and clean although small - unfortunately when we booked the only room available was a single queen bed. The only problem was the 6 or 7 rooms fully of rowdy 20-somethings staying on our floor. Every night they bought huge cases of beer, cranked up the music, and partied in the hallways from 6-7 pm until around midnight, when they finally went to the clubs. The walls are thin and we could hear every drunken word. Security came up multiple times every night, but they were just laughed at. I guess that's the biggest disadvantage to any reasonably priced hotel! Also, they turned off our access to the Wi-Fi at midnight the day before we checked out, so in the morning we had to call down and get a new code. As someone else mentioned, the most convenient parking is the two outdoor lots nearby which are $20 cash per day. The hotel doesn't have a space in front where you can park your car when you check in, so we had to pull into one of these lots and pay before checking in. Otherwise we would have purchased the indoor parking for only $13+tax that the hotel offers! And on the plus side, the hotel is convenient walking distance to many interesting areas of Montreal. I would probably stay here again... but not on NYE!

It was a good Best Western Hotel. Great location, only a block or so from great shopping on Rue St Catherine and smack-dab in the middle of downtown. Parking is an extra 20 dollars a day. Nice breakfast at the Chez Cora restaurant. No room service. There's good food within walking distance, in case you're snowed in, on Rue Bishop--try Mango Bay for Carribean, http://www.mangobay.ca/, as well as Charlies (American) and there's also Lebanese, Irish and Indian food on Rue Bishop. Brasilian? http://www.restomontreal.ca/fr/1078/Le-Milsa. Free wifi. Little to no treet noise, I heard sounds from the hallway occasionally, including doors closing, that sort of thing. There is a restaurant on the 2nd floor but it was not open during the three days I spent in Montreal, because of a holiday and a snowstorm, perhaps. Overall, 3.5 stars. Marlena--Mango Bay was closed@!

Room Tip: As far away as you can get from the elevator. I don't know what part of the building it was, bu...

Great place to stay in downtown Montreal. Unlike other reviewers we chose the King business room which gave us more space. Very clean room with free Wi-Fi. At check-in we were given a breakfast voucher for 2 at Chez Cora because we were in Montreal to celebrate my husband's birthday. Walking distance to everything we had planned. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: King business rooms have considerably more room than the standard Queen.
