“Great Establishment!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I have stayed here for three annual consecutive Osheaga weekends... and a few "getaway" weekends, too. This hotel fills up quick... so you need to book early, too!

The rooms are clean, spacious, and all-around good! The front desk staff has been always helpfull, and outgoing (it has been the same guy... and he is great).
It's in an older, yet renovated, building and you have to deal with the "quirks" of building. If your room is facing St. Denis... you WILL hear all of the street noise... until 2-3-4AM. Especially on weekends. Also (on every occasion)... hotel cleaning staff will start vacuming, and cleaning rooms around 8am. So... it the street party keeps you up until 4Am... and the cleaning crew wakes you up at 8AM...................... this probably isn't the place for "sleep". The hotel cleaning staff is "obnoxiously" LOUD too.... which is my biggest "pet-peeve" at this place.

There is "limited" parking. This area is, also, notorious for car break-ins. (TRUST ME... on this one! Seriously!) The hotel will charge you for parking.... but park elsewhere. The underground Grande Biblioteque, has seemed to be the safest... but add another $12 CAD to your expenses!

Anyways... It's a good hotel! It depends on what yoy are looking for... and your expectations.

Room Tip: Any rooms fronting Rue St. Denis.... are NOT quiet during the "weekend hours". Cleaning st...

I say that only in that it's not part of a chain, or a 40 story mega-hotel...

.. but other than that, it's top of the line, as far as quality, service, staff, rates and location !

I've recently had to start going back to Montreal more regularily these past few months and this hotel has become an even better deal now, than it was when I'd last went there about 5 years ago. With the recent renovations, completely (and very nicely !) redone rooms, hardwood floors and so on, the place just looks, and is, superb and is very comfortable to say the least.

The location is as central as can be, just a minute's walk from the main subway station (which can then get you anywhere in the city in a flash) and loads of very good and varied restaurants, bars, clubs, concert venues, parcs (you name it) within a stone's throw of the hotel.

But despite it being located so "centrally", worry not, it's on one of the more quiet blocks in the area.

All the staff is very curteous and helpfull, notably, from my experience, Nancy and Oriana on housekeeping, Sebastien at the front desk and the manager, Catherine.

The only bad point ? My not being able to go there more often !

We stayed here for 2 nights as I wanted us to have a different experience from staying at Vieux-Montreal for our last 3 nights. This hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and it is centrally located. Albeit the Plateau and Quartier Latin aren't for us, it was nice to have lots of restaurants and shops located just steps from the hotel.

My only complaint is the noise from the Rue St. Denis. We like to sleep with the windows open to let the cool air in, and, as clubs let out at 3am, it sounded as though there was some kind of riot outside.

I stayed here for 5 nights whilst at a conference at the Palais de Congres, which is about 20 minutes walk away. Nice hotel, I had a good room with coffee maker, complimentary coffee and free wifi. No breakfast available, but there are cafes very close by. Good location for Montreal sightseeing. I'd stay there again.

Spent 3 days there. Great deal, good price, near good restaurants, walkable to lots of things to see and do.
We had a car and went to the Olympic park, up the tower, walked old town, took loads of pictures. A real good time.
Would recommend to all. Weather was changeable so either wore or carried layers. No problems with the French language, all knew English or we could make ourselves understood. Very friendly people, felt respected.

Ideally located in the middle of the various neighbourhoods you want to visit (old town, blvd st laurent, downtown, mont). Friendly staff and nice rooms. Would recommend for anyone wanting to explore the city and the night life.

Stayed here for three nights when in Montreal for the NASCAR races at beginning of August.

As it was an event weekend hotel prices were high. I found a great deal online for this hotel online. It was a lot cheaper than any other decent 3 star hotels in Montreal.

The room was large, basic but very clean. Perfect for our needs.

Hotel in a great location for main train station, bars and restaurants.

If you want a clean hotel in a great location for downtown Montreal at a reasonable price then this is a great choice.
