What a nice hotel and primo location. We walked from the cruise ship to the hotel, although we were apprehensive at first. Along the ship's long dock to the street,,, Along the street on the side walk,,, Not more than 15 to 20 minutes total. Yes our suitcases were on rollers. Yes we could have taken a taxi (but the taxi line was culturally typical, one taxi at a time only allowed to enter the area and pick up disembarking passengers) and we became impatient. And we aren't that young.
In any event, all the other reviews as to the high quality of the hotel are correct. It is an elegant inn and the panoramic views from a lot of the rooms are terrific. We enjoyed walking the street to the back of the hotel, Rue St Paul, which we could access through a back hotel entrance.
Lots of little restaurants, including a deli, Marche de la Villette at 324 Rue St Paul Ouest, a find. Far out glass frames at Bar a lunettes on 401McGill, found a frame for my wife.
We highly recommend this hotel and this area.
