Steps to old Montreal, it is a good location for that. Metro is close by, underneath the attached mall. Walkable to popular establishments like Schwartz (25mins), shops of Saint Catherine (10min). So location is good.
The hotel was renovated 2 years ago, so it looks and feels better. Room service was quick. Free to use gym and pool. The corner room offers good views and quite spacious. Pillow was too soft, had a hard time sleeping.
My only beef is the public parking below the hotel. It's $3.50 for 20mins. We parked for 1.5 hours and it somehow came to $18. If you are driving, use the valet service, $32 + tax. This allows you to go in and out freely for 1 price. And you don't have to drive down to P9 to park!!!
