My husband and I stayed at Ruby Foos for the F-1 race weekend, and plan on returning to this hotel next year! The hotel is very easy to get to from the highway, parking is free and plentiful in a gated lot. The metro station is a very easy 5 minute walk and then a 30+ minute subway to get to the track and other points of interest downtown. We were very happy to enjoy all the fun of the weekend all day, then retreat to a calmer (and cheaper) part of the city There are many restaurant options available, in both walking and short driving distance, in addition to the hotel . (we chose to eat at the hotel, the wood fired pizza is wonderful....about $17 for an artisan pizza that was enough for both of us). There are many stores around, including a Wal-Mart, which we appreciated when we needed to buy a few race day items that we forgot to buy before we left. There are many fast breakfast options available; Tim Horton, McDonalds, Burger King, etc., but we chose a diner-type joint. For about $7 p/p we had a bottomless cup of coffee and full breakfast that was a bit under seasoned but filled us up for the day (about a block from the hotel, on the way to the metro station). The rooms were very spacious and clean, the bed comfortable and soft with an abundance of pillows. The bathroom was also spacious with ample counter space and excellent water pressure. I appreciate little things the hotel provided like shower caps and body lotion, which many hotels do not anymore. Overall The proximity of the hotel to the metro, reasonable price, clean rooms and convenience to shopping make this an excellent choice visiting Montreal.
