The Universel is next door to the Montreal Olympic Park, about 5 miles from the city centre. The building is showing its 40-ish years, despite refurbishments. Quite dark, limited elevators. My room was one that has been recently revamped, at least the shower room had. My colleague raved about how much nicer my room was to his older version upstairs.
Saying that, the rooms were large, clean & comfortable. If you don't have your own transport, it's about a 15 minute walk to the Metro. Dine at the hotel or a limited number of eateries within short walking distance.
Location fine if you are visiting local attractions or working in adjacent industrial area. No real complaints-just nothing to enthuse about either.
