My partner and I (both late 20's) recently stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while in Montreal.
The hotel is on Rue St. Denis which is a wonderful street filled with charming cafe's and adorable botiques. There are tons and tons of places to eat and shop all along the street. Traveling left out of the hotel, you can walk to the Latin Quarter, as well as Vieux Montreal within 30 minutes. I am from Philly, so I am comfortable walking the streets usually- Montreal, and this section in particular felt very safe. There are always crowds on the street, and you hear people speaking both French and English (when asked).
We were in Room 31, which is located down the hall from the office, facing St. Denis. There was a jazz club downstairs, I did not find the noise to be overwhelming, and at no point did it wake me up, or cause us trouble. In fact, the hotel has installed double sliding windows in the room which really did a good job of blocking off noise from the streets.
The room is SMALL, when the bed is folded down there is about 2 feet on each side of the room. There is also a 13" TV with cable, mounted on the wall. This room felt very European to me (if you know what I mean). It was a nice room, just very small - but well thought out and efficiently designed (again very Euro).
When we walked into the room, the bed was folded down; it made the room look awkward. Then I discovered that the bed folds up into the wall and a dining room table appears with a loud SNAP of the legs. This made a big difference, on how the room could be used. It gave us a landing spot for all of our laptop and "stuff," then at night it would just fold down into comfortable (though low to the ground) bed.
There was a full kitchenette that had all you needed to cook a complete meal. A fridge, a microwave, toaster oven, 2 burner stove, dishes, pots, pans, soap, towels, bottle opener- everything. We did not use the kitchen, however if we were to have stayed for more than 2 nights, I would have definitely taken the opportunity to make something home cooked. Also, coffee in REAL mugs is nice, over the usual styrofoam cups.
As mentioned, each morning you get 2 fresh croissants hung on your door in a cute red bag. There was butter, jelly and coffee available in your room as well. This was a nice, inexpensive way to start the morning, so you can hit the ground running and explore the city.
The bathroom was clean, the sink was cracked- but no big deal at all. There were towels, soaps, shampoos, etc. - the typical hotel stock.
There is NO parking AT the hotel however they provide parking in a lot that is 2-3 blocks away, off of the street, and down an alley. The parking is $6 a day, and is payable in Canadian CASH only. There was someone there when I brought the car in, but not when I left the first time, so I had to pay only the second day (sorry!). When you first pull up to the hotel, a single spot is available to unload your bags.
I was able to use the AAA rate which was only $95 a night - I would say well worth it.
I met 3 people from the staff, all were very nice younger women who did their best to help provide me information, or give local advise. There was someone in the office at all times from what I could see, but I believe the staff leaves at 12 midnight. You are given a key to get in later if needed.
There was ample travel information available in the hall, I found the "Official Guide 08-09 a la Montreal" (there is a printed kiss / red lips mark on the cover) to be the most helpful. This provided walking "circuits" A,B,C, etc. as well as detailed and easy to ready maps.
Wireless internet was included with this room, and I was able to get a good signal 100% of the time.
I would suggest this hotels for younger folks, who love the nightlife and can spend an evening walking from bar to restaurant to coffee shop. If you are looking for a slower, quieter place this is not the right hotel. I would consider staying at this hotel if I were to wander back into Montreal.
