If you are staying here you either have business in this part of the city, or like us, cant find a hotel in the heart of the city. Like the olympic stadium across the street, this hotel needs a serious retrofit. It must have been built to accommodate the Olympics, and it hasn't seen a paint brush or tlc since. Beside the olympic facility and the park across the street, it is located in a food manufacturing area of the city. The only redeeming quality to this place was the friendly staff. If you like very basic 30 to 40 year old decor, bath tub taps that don't work at a relatively cheap price, this is the place for you. You will need a car to get around(free parking), not much in the way of amenities nearby, but you can pick up discount crackers and cookies at the Christie's bakery a half block from the back door. The subway (metro) to downtown takes about 15-20 minutes to the McGill station and is a short 5-7 minute walk from the hotel just around the corner from the Maurice Richard arena.
