Convienet to the Old Montreal Area. About a 1 1/2 mile walk which is easy as it's senic walking through Chinatown, St. Catherine's street, etc. Lots of shops to stop in on the walk.
Hotel room is small, nothing special. The bathroom is very small. Cannot be used by more than one person at a time. Nice big bay windows. There is a bit of construction going on near the building so you may choose to ask for a room away from the construction.
Hotel is a bit dated but it's clean and comfortable. Price seems a little high for the quality but we did stay during the jazz festival.
The concierge room is nice but small - I counted only 28 seats in the room that you could actually use to eat. Breakfast is your traditional continental style, fruit, pastries, cheese, yogurt, etc. The evening snack is nice.....one night had beef stroganoff which was better than the lunch that i paid $50 for outside the hotel earlier that day. the concierge room closes at 12 noon on Friday so the hotel lets Gold and Platinum Members have a discount to the buffet which is a great deal! The omlet station was great. Made almost like a crepe...delicate and artistic quality to the omlet. Traditional sides like bacon, sausage, oatmeal, fruit, etc. Bit of chaos on Sunday with only 2 waiters. Our table was "stolen" by another couple while we were at the buffet so we had to be reseated.
We did try the hotel bar for a quick sandwich one evening. We were too tired to go back out and find a restaurant. The club sandwich and fries were very good.
Pool area is very wet and slippery so make sure to wear your rubber soled shoes. nice hot tub to relax in after touring the city.
Convienent to get on the Red Double Decker Gray Line bus tour. Picks up at 10 a.m. about 2 blocks in front of the hotel. Great way to see the city....allows you to hop on and off as you'd like. we did pay $5 extra to tack on the evening tour but the traffic was so bad, the bus was at least 40 minutes late in picking us up so we ended up walking back to the hotel. We couldn't wait anymore as it was almost 10 p.m. and needed to get back to catch an early morning flight.
Overall, not a bad hotel but I probably will try the new Courtyard that is being built once it is opened. It's convienent to jazz festival's entrance and in walking distance to all the sites.
