We two seniors (67 and 72 plus our grand children 5 and 10) stayed at the Holiday Inn Express from July 30 to 31.2011. The Room was renovated and clean. The bathroom was modern. The “Mini Pool” should be considered a “Big Jacuzzi” more for Adults. When we booked (by phone) we were told that there would be a shuttle going down town and that it was free of charge. What the Holiday Inn reservation and the front desk did not tell us was that there is a hotel organized shuttle going down town, but that it is leaving already at 8:15 a.m. and is only returning at 6:00 p.m. The front desk let us believe (or lets just say that they “forgot” to tell us about this fact) so we went at 8:30 to the bus stop only to find out that the Desjardin Bus Line 400 starts only at 10:00 a.m. and thereafter every 15 minutes (cost 3:00 $ per Adult plus 1.50 $ for Kids over 6 years old). We had to find this fact out from the very friendly and attentive and helpful front Desk of the Best Western Hotel (next to the Holiday Inn) they gave us even paper based instructions and a city map. One more comment. Don’t expect a well furnished Buffet Breakfast at the Holiday Inn Express, but rather “Industrial Croissants and Pancakes” with plastic teaspoons, knifes and forks, a cheap minimal buffet style – this maybe o.k. for North American Tourists but probably not for Europeans. For European Tourists with kids we recommend to book (if you can) at the Best Western Hotel – there is a real pool for kids and the Hotel is European Style and the front desk seems to be much more attentive to their guests. The Room price is equal or less. The Bus Line 400 stop is just across the Best Western Hotel. One positive comment, they let us in the room already at 10:30 a.m. (when we asked if we could leave our luggage somewhere) normal check-in time is 3:00 p.m.
