Spent 3 nights at Hotel Dauphin as we were passing through Montreal, and thought the hotel was a great value for its location and amenities. Our room on the 8th floor offered 2 queen beds, a refrigerator, a safe and a flat screen TV. We could occasionally hear our neighbors as well as the room above us, but it did not disturb our sleep. I did find the bathroom a little small, with just one sink and a glassed in shower - there was no way both my husband and I could be in the bathroom at the same time.
The location of the property was great, with 2 different Metro stops located within a 10 minute walk and both Old Town and the Latin Quarter within walking distance. There were not a ton of restaurants close to the property, but there was a supermarket in a nearby mall that allowed us to stock the refrigerator with goodies. Parking was a bit of an issue as we were there during Jazzfest, but we were able to find a space in the convention center lots for $25 a day. Left the car parked the entire visit as many streets were either closed for festivals or construction, and it was much easier to negotiate the city on the Metro.
Did not try the hotel breakfast as we were usually still full from dinner the night before, so not sure how that was. Also did not use the laundry facilities, but it is a nice feature for the hotel to offer.
There were a few little quirks that prevented me from giving the property 5 stars. Our first morning there the automatic shades in our room decided to open themselves at 8 in the morning, which was both noisy and bright. They are operated by a push button next to the bed, and I have no idea why they chose to rise on their own. It was an unexpected wake up call! Also, the air conditioner was pretty noisy whenever it turned on, and sometimes made it difficult to fall asleep.
Overall we had a good stay at the property, and thought it a great value for its location and offerings. Would definitely consider staying here again if we ever return to Montreal.
