We stayed in room 201 for 3 nights for our honeymoon. The auberge is located in the old city, not far from the train station (where we arrived in Montreal). We were greeted very warmly both by the desk attendant and the doorman. We were able to check in easily and the doorman helped us with our luggage to our room.
The room is absolutely beautiful. Exposed rock walls and wooden beams, two enormous windows that looked out onto a park and the St.Lawrence river (we were told this is the only hotel to offer such a view). Really, it was everything the pictures promised. There was a large mini-bar available and robes and slippers as well.
From 5-7pm they offer free wine and cheese to guests, which we took advantage of each day. The bar/restaurant was outfitted in dark wood and dark walls which set a nice mood.
And the breakfast! Guests are led to the basement, again with exposed rock walls, and treated to a continental and hot breakfast. We munched on croissants and chocolate muffins and fruit until our crepes or eggs arrived. We were blown away by the generous meal and the staff were very friendly, being polite when we tried our bad French with them.
The auberge is close to museums, restaurants and an art market. I don't think I have anything negative to say about the hotel or our experience. I gave the room 4/5 only because I wished it had a bathtub instead of just a shower. Even the toiletries were great (provided by a spa that the hotel also owns). We definitely plan to go back to Montreal and stay at this hotel again next year.
