not what you expect

This hotel is not a 4* star hotel at all. Maybe, maybe a bad 3 *. The hotel is old, nothing modern,far away for the city center. I will not stay at this hotel again, it was a very poor choice.

Ok for the price

It was not like it looked on their website. It does look like they have some upgrades scheduled which seems to be the room picture they have on their site. However, the room we had was not the one pictured or close to it. That being said, The common areas were nice, and the room, even though a bit dated, was clean and staff was friendly. It is within a short walk to the metro and parking was ample so it was a good home base to see the city from for a reasonable price.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the metro, for a five minute walk it is easier than having to worry about parking in the city. Even not speaking a lick of French we were able to figure out the routes with minimal trouble.

Good hotel - would recommend

Very nicely located, especially if you have a car (we didn't try the Metro so don't know about that). Ample parking. Near all the major highways (turns out Montreal is a pretty small place after all), nice fast-food and restaurants nearby, on main road that runs the length of Montreal, so very easy to drive around and then find the hotel again. Tiny indoor pool (but clean), decent jacuzzi and sauna; large outdoor pool but too cold to swim. One downside: no exhaust fan in bathroom-plus-toilet - with folks sharing the toilet, this was ridiculous!!

Great location, but the room was shaby

The first room we got had no dial tone of the phone. We were send for a second room where the refrigirator is not cool enough for any food at all.
