“Smelly and old, avoid the restaurant!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Not too impressed with this property. The hotel looks quite dated and feels old. It's as though they tried a reno but fell short. They tried but it's just not good enough.

The front desk staff do try and help out though I wasn't happy with my stay. The food is absolutely horrible and the bar manager is an absolute jerk!!!

If you have to visit Montreal (considered among the coldest major cities in world) during the winter (and any season), want a pleasant hotel that is fairly priced, don't want the hastle of navigating or parking in tightly cramped downtown Montreal, Ruby Foo's is an ideal place to stay. Its rates are moderate, the rooms are newly renovated and pleasing, beds are high quality, parking is a cinch and access to just about anywhere in Montreal is easy because of hotel proximity to Decarie BlVd - which takes you along the north-south axis of Montreal. Nearby are food treats for the Montreal foof junkies, people who relish Montreal old favorites, including the Snowdon Deli, Dunn's, Orange Julep and others.

Room Tip: Ask for a romm that does not face the main road.

We stayed there for a family reunion. The hotel is located not too far from the airport and several businesses. It is not really for tourist, since it is far from downtown. However, the metro is about a 3 minutes walk from the Ruby Foo's. Our room was large and clean. The bathroom is also large and clean. The bed is super comfortable. I love their blind systems, a wooden rack that slides. It makes the room very dark.

I was visiting some friends so I wasn't sure if I wanted to stay downtown.
I ended up staying at Ruby Foo's hotel.
It ended up being very convenient for my friends.
This hotel used to be a really good restaurant but don't expect the same food from their kitchen.
The rooms are reasonable and clean.
Like I said it's very central.
This is a good choice and I would come back again for my next friends visit to Montreal

Nice room, clean comfortable, great idea for a curtain black to room out lovely.
Breakfast was good, staff were friendly and professional.
And even better you can walk down to Tiffanie's for breakfast.
And if you like it you can cross over and go the the Orange Julip

We had a long term stay during renos and stayed in a suite, which had a kitchenette. The room had a queen bed, a sofabed, lots of closet space, a half-size fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, three burners and a small oven. The set up made it really easy for us to live mostly normally.

There's free parking and internet, though the WIFI is really spotty and not that great when you do catch it.
Otherwise, it's a really convenient location - lots of restaurants, gas stations, stores within walking distance. There's even a European supermarket around the corner.

All the staff were super helpful, especially one of the concierges who has been working there over 25 years. We had a chat about the history of the place. Everyone is super friendly and helpful.

We were really impressed by the quality of the rooms and the service of this place. Family members are repeat customers, and I can see why- it's near a Metro station and an awesome Indian restaurant. Everything was super close.
