The location is great for business and is close to the trendy galeries like the Fonderie Darling, the activities on Place des Arts, Chinatown and the quaint streets of Old Montreal. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, from the lifeguard to the concierge to housekeeping to reception, where I saw a manager efficiently assist a couple who'd left a passport in their previous hotel before joking with me about our shared first name. Housekeeping was also very good about locating and returning something I'd left in the room after I checked out.
The gym was adequate, the pool looked nice, though its position outside the reception windows was a bit odd. In fact, the layout of the hotel spread out pretty much in a single layer the length of a city block is a little labyrinthine, with a fair amount of walking to get from one place to the other. In its architecture (concrete and glassed-in green terraces) is very much a reflection of a lot of Montreal's boom between Expo 67 and the Olympics in 76, giving it a slightly dated feel, rather than the Austin Powers cool it might have once had.
My standard room was a decent size. Again, no bells or whistles, just staightforward, clean, and sufficient.
For my taste, I'd pick something with a little more personality, but it's a chain and for the convenience of a chain it was absolutely fine. No complaints here.
