This hotel compliments the character of "old montreal" perfectly. Situated along the river and only a few steps from the "main drag" of the historic Vieux Port, the hotel is located in an authentic historic building. Original interior stone walls create a warm and charming atmosphere -setting the tone for a cozy and relaxing get-away.
It was about a five minute walk to the subway station and, after touring Montreal for a couple of days, I would not be able to suggest a better location as a base for exploring this city.
The room was spacious and clean and well appointed. There were exposed beams and brick which gave the room an historic feel that was in keeping with the rest of the building. Some of the furnishings were not quite at the five star level but the overall quality of the decor was excellent. I had a huge king bed with one of the most comfortable mattresses I have slept on. The bathroom was very well appointed and was finished with natural stone and marble features.
The size of the hotel was perfect-small enough to capture the essence of my idea of "boutique" yet large enough to support sufficient staffing and amenities. The restaurant and gastropub which is separated but accessible through the lobby served excellent food and was a wonderful social gathering place.
The best part of the stay was the staff. All were warm and welcoming. The check in was efficient and the entire crew was friendly and enthusiastic. The outstanding concierge skills of the front desk helped me to make the most of my short stay. All the staff was kind enough to encourage and help me with my attempts to speak French, although they were of course perfectly fluent in both languages!
I will definitely stay at this hotel the next time I visit Montreal. I especially recommend it to those who seek to get in touch with the local history and culture.
