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!!

Use this hotel if you will be based in Montreal but may want to visit Quebec, as we did.

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.

OK, not Great

Some of the reviews I read before I booked said "great location" - which it is if all you want to see is the Olympic Statium. It's a big distance from downtown or Old Montreal and even the Metro is a hike if you are a Senior Citizen or disabled. Cabs are expensive. The Gray Line bus wouldn't pick us up or drop us off for a day trip to Quebec because it is so far from downtown. Service in the hotel was excellent - really nice people. The Reception area and rooms were spotless, the corridors less so, especially around the elevator. The food in the restaurant was not very good, but we made do with bar food which was reasonable and very tasty. We didn't use the pools, but the outside one looked OK. In short, this is probably equivalent to a three star hotel but not a four.

Not great, not terrible. Free parking!

Good value. Clean quiet room. Outdoor pool great, indoor pool small and very odd color. Free parking and metro about 10 min walk. Approx 5 stops away from city center.

Excellent hotel

This hotel is amazing! We loved the location and the convenience to the subway. The hotel desk clerks were very accommodating and went out of their way to help us when we asked anything. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The common areas were well kept and very fancy. The outdoor pool was very nice and warm!! The lifeguard was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay there again.
