but it's not quite Carling.
You have to bear in mind what seems to be the Pur's stock-in-trade – business-types and the “It's Tuesday, it must be Quebec City” tours, in for a night or two.
They get blown away by the spectacular view from those rooms facing St.Joseph's (as we were!) and don't get to feel the weaknesses. We stayed for 5 nights and they began to tell.
When travelling on business, usually staying for a week or two, I found the singlemost irritating thing a hotel could get wrong was not having enough drawer space, the same goes for the Pur, the excuse for drawer space was laughable.
The interior décor was stylish but let down by poorly-made cheap mdf units (covering an old, wind-tunnel a/c unit), for example.
The lobby was all 'stylish' (but uncomfortable) grey slabs - clearly the interior designers, in their quest for minimalism/modernism, didn't quite get round to stylish chairs!!
This said, the view from 1410 was spectacular (especially late at night)– how we would have loved a nice comfy chair to sit in to really savour it; the bathroom excellent, with shed-loads of linen.
Overall the Pur is nice enough, but not somewhere you can settle into and chill.
