The hotel wasn't bad at all. It was in a great location. Located at the corner of Boulevard Rene-Levesque Ouest and Rue. Crescent. It was just a one block walk up Rue. Crescent to Rue. St. Catherine (which is the main shopping district).
The room was huge. I stayed in a private single room (with one double bed and a private bathroom). The price was $195.00 plus tax, which came out to about $230.00. I was expecting something a bit dinky, but the room was very big (bigger than my bedroom at home). I was in room 717 which is just as you get off the elevator on the 7th floor. The room was cold, which was understandable as the heat was turned off. What I didn't understand is that when I arrived and turned the heat on, only cold air came out of the ventilation system. This was true for the entire trip.
There was also a bit of trouble with some of the electrical outlets. Some worked and some didn't. They were working and then they wouldn't work five minutes later. You had to alternate which outlet you plugged the TV into.
The cleaning staff was great. They came at around 10 or 11 am every morning to ask if you would like your room serviced. I found it a bit funny, that the staff spoke only French or Spanish (as opposed to English which is one of the national languages). They couldn't even understand basic terms in English, but they did understand my butchered French.
The decor was a bit outdated, but all in all, it wasn't bad. It was a bonus that I was able to check into the room early. I arrived at 11 am and check in wasn't until 3 pm. I went to the hotel to store my bags, but they did one even better. They told me the room was ready and allowed me to check in early. *Note* When you are making your reservation online, the hotel is not actually charging you for your room. You actually pay when you check in, and the price is a bit more expensive than the price on their website (as it includes the tax).
The staff was very helpful when I was asking directions and there was always someone there who was friendly.
