Location: walking distance to Rue St.Paul (half pedestrianised street full of restaurants, cafes, shops and art galleries. Always buzzing and packed at the weekend!), Place St.Jacques, the Old Port...
Hotel: really unusual due to the art about the place - nice! The bar area was really nice too though we didn't stop for a drink there. The gym is very basic - 4 cardio machines, very light weights and 2 swiss balls. Towels and water provided but no mats to do floor exercises. We didn't have breakfast here (try Cafe Veritas for a healthy breky or Olive et Gourmande - both yummy and within walking distance) but the dining room was really cool (boutique style.)
Room: really big! Clean and airy. Large flatscreen TV and tea/coffee making facilities as well as everything you'd expect to get in the bathroom. (Nice Gilchrist and Soames toiletries!)
Service: staff were always smiling and friendly and keen to help you in any way they could. Check out was excellent - as we checked out early in the morning we settled the bill the night before. The woman who dealt with our bill had communicated this to her colleague so in the morning he knew that we'd already paid, our taxi was waiting for us and there was coffee if we wanted it - fantastic! You can also keep the keys as a souvenir - lovely stuff!
Montreal: we really enjoyed Parc Mont Royal as it was lush and totally away from the city. Beautiful views too. We didn't enjoy Parc Jean Drapeau - it wasn't really a park, more of an island with lots of roads, construction, litter...not relaxing or pretty. We used the Bixi bikes - really nice way to get around but you need to 'check them in' to a bike station every 30mins. OK I guess but if you go a minute over you get charged more so watch out as it gets more and more expensive the longer you have the bike! There are lots of stations around happily.
