I stayed at the Hotel Chez Swann for the second time last week and I enjoyed it even more than the first time. I had a suite this visit with an enormous bay window overlooking Rue Drummond and de Maisonneuve. The room was huge, with a comfortable bed and a shower built for two. The housekeeping staff were very friendly, and the front desk staff excellent, particularly Reza who seemed to really care that we had a good visit - not only to the hotel, but to Montreal. The location is excellent with great shopping all around the neighbourhood. My favourite department store - Ogilvy - is minutes away, and Simons, another excellent place to shop is a hidden gem down the block. There was a delicious burger place across the street called M:Burger, and a fantastic chocolate shop called Suite 88, also across the street. The Montreal Metro is a block away. Cab drivers may have difficulty finding the property...tell them it's attached to the delicious bistro called Le Pois Penche at the corner of Drummond and de Maisonneuve (which still has the best fig jam at breakfast). I will return!
