Great location

If you are going to the Biodome, Olympic stadium or the botanical gardens this hotel is right around the corner. Also the subway is close if you wanted to go anywhere else.

Great Hotel near great attractions

The hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. The best part though was the walking distance to the botanical gardens as well as the biodome. Would stay again.

lack of security

it was really a great visit for me except the fact that someone broke into my car and stole my GPS. though it was written outside on the billboard when coming in, but the hotel staff suppose to remind you when you are checking in, because my mind has escaped it, to remove the all items in the car. and that was my first visit to montreal, i think the hotel lacks security. maybe they need to put more light or have someone to stay at the parking lot or the staff shoud always confirm if anyone has anything in the car that will atttract the thief to remove it, some might not even have the time to read it outside. am planning of coming Aug again and i pray if you guys take action on that issue, except that am very okay with the service.

great location, friendly staff

The front desk staff was very friendly. We got to the hotel a little early, and attempted to checkin two hours before the standard time, since that wasn't possible, they offered to provide us with free internet access. We then took a 5 minute drive to the downtown shops & street vendors, to do a little shopping and eat. The food tasted great.
