My husband and I stayed here for the 5th time last weekend. It was okay. Our overall impression was that they need to step up their cleaning, their professionalism, and the overall impression of the hotel. First, let me say that in the past the place was spotless, the service was impeccable, and we absolutely LOVED it. Something was different this time. When we first walked in, it just didn't smell clean. There were fingerprints on the glass, and the floors looked a bit shabby. We went out Friday night, slept in until 10 on Saturday, and then went out until about 4 pm. Why do I tell you this? Because between 10am and 6pm our room was not made up. In fact it never was. I mentioned this to the front desk and they did not seem surprised. I asked them to bring fresh towels to my room and they told me I could pick them up and bring them myself. It was just..... odd. For $400- for two nights (with tax) I expect a clean room and clean towels. I expected someone to say "oops-- let us give you a free night" or something-- but no.
Breakfast was pretty good. The snack kitchen is great-- cheeses, cookies, etc. are all for the taking.
This used to be our favorite place. It is right on the bike path, across from a great park, and near Mount Royal St. which is funky and fun to walk and shop. We love the Plateau area and will probably return to that area, but most likely not to that auberge. We have recommended this place to many people.... but won't again unless they prove themselves and don't just rest on their laurels.
