I spent 4 nights in a superior room on the 7th floor and loved it. Walking in, you put your keycard in a switchbox on the wall and all the lights come on, including a lighted crystal rock in the bedroom the size of a small side table. I immediately heard the faint sounds of classical music and was bummed I could hear noise from another room until I realised it was from the small stereo sitting by the window.
There is a separate desk area between the bedroom and bathroom which gives a roomier feel. This was a central area for me to connect with free wi-fi and flip through the reading material of things to do and eat! In this same area is a wall of closet doors with a light that came on when opened. The right side of doors had lots of wood hangers, a built-in set of drawers that were low enough for me to hoist my rollerbag onto, and an iron and ironing board. On the left was the minibar fridge that luckily isn't sensored so you can use it for the cheeses and wine you bring back! However the area seemed a bit hot so you probably wouldn't want your wine to sit on top too long.
The bathroom had everything you could need. Robes hanging behind the door, toiletries and glasses under a clear box (while others make fun of it I like the idea of keeping these items protected from the elements!), lots of towels, and a fluffy bath mat rolled up under the sink (careful since it doesn't have any grip on the bottom), and a hair dryer. The bath/shower is substantial with an adjustable shower head.
The bedroom area has dark hardwood floor, lots of nice lighting, a chair and stereo by the window, full size mirror, and TV. The queen sized bed was very comfortable and don't recall any noise disturbing my sleep.
There is a restaurant called Hambar off the lobby which will also deliver to your room. The hotel is in Old Montreal, which is a nice area to walk around and to get away from the rest of the city. The ATM is a few blocks away near the closest Metro.
But the one thing which stood out the most? The staff. From the guys at the front door, the cheery housekeeping, to the helpfulness at the front desk, including the wonderful gentleman who arranged a seat at the bar for me at a hot restaurant which normally required reservations a month out. It was the most amazing meal and unfortunately I didn't see him again to thank him. Someone tell him I love him!
I recommend staying here.
