I chose this hotel based on reviews here, as well as a glowing review in both Frommers and Fodors. I am glad that we did. I contacted them a little late (1 month before our trip) and initially they didnt have a room for the whole 4 nights of our stay. They offered two different rooms to patch it together. But a couple of days later they had a cancellation and she e-mailed us that one was open the whole time. We have a 3 month old, and they provided a crib (pack and play) for us at no charge. It was waiting in the room for us when we got there.
The room itself is not all that large, but it is well lit and comfortable. Very clean and nicely decorated. I don't expect a large room in a historic building in old Montreal. The location is amazing. Just around the corner from the Basilica, an easy walk from the river and from the Metro station. You are in the middle of it all there. The breakfast is included and very nice.
What really makes the difference is the staff. The front desk staff is absolutely amazing. They have great suggestions for where to go to eat, and then they will call ahead for you, so there is a table reserved when you get to the restaurant. They really went above and beyond for us. Like I said, we have a 3 month old. We brought her crib soother (box that makes lights and music and movement) because that is what seems to work to calm her down. However, we did not bring some back up batteries. They found 4 C batteries for us in the basement, and then there was an issue getting the battery compartment open (it required a phillips head screw driver). We were on our way out to get dinner, so they said leave it with us and we will fix it. When we got back, the soother was all re-batteried and in our room. The staff was so helpful and nice, they really put a good place over the top to great. If we are lucky enough to come back to Montreal, we will be staying here again.
