My wife and I are Hilton Gold Card Members which gives us an opportunity to stay at all levels of Hilton properties on our vacations and business travels. This hotel in one the best that we have stayed in from the quality of the room, the staff, the front desk was excellent.
The front desk helped with walking maps, points of interest and restaurants. I highly recommend this location if you are going to Montreal.
Don't even worry about not speaking French or using your HS French, everyone speaks English.
