Visited in May (single male traveler) and have to say that this really is a great bargain. I stayed in the suites section and had a large bedroom, kitchenette (with all appliances and conveniences - for those who want to shop and eat in occasionally), private bathroom and plenty of space. Portable air conditioner, TV included, no telephone and no internet capability in room - some kind of intercom was on wall but didn't have to use. Room was very clean and quiet for the most part. Not straightened up one day during my 9-day stay. Finding hotel was easy once you understand all the one-ways and maneuver the traffic (which is menacing). Arrival was hurried as parking in front of hotel is limited, then you walk up flight of stairs and quickly check in. Suites are around the coroner, and parking (private but very inexpensive) is a block behind. Once you get parked, you have to bring luggage back to the suites (roadwork going on and confusing entrance). I had a room on the 3rd floor and the climb was daunting. If you are elderly or have problems getting around, this is not the ideal setup for you. Parking was okay on weekends, however, weekday parking filled quickly with people who worked in the area. Sometimes have to leave key and have attendant park when space opens up. Not a big deal though. Conveniently located in "center" of town within walking distance to China Town, Old Town, and most "tourist" sites. Walking distance to all kinds of restaurants and major malls nearby. Yes, the area does look kinda seedy, but I felt pretty safe, and I wandered about all hours of day and night. Rental car came in handy because I wanted to visit Quebec, otherwise, the metro system and buses are everywhere.
