A little late on my review but better late then never. Good place to stay. Clean, pleasant staff (even helped me with a little French, of course make sure you ask when it isn't busy). Good location although my agenda made me drive everywhere but that's not due to bad location. Night club in a high rise across the street brought interesting people into the area, also because it was a long weekend people were out playing. Parking was available at $25 a day. I tried my luck and parked on the street but the morning of the last day (labor day, monday holiday) I got a $150 parking ticket. OMG! 1) I guess parking restrictions apply on this holiday 2) there were separate signs for this restriction at 6-9 am aside from the other sign for restrictions for the rest of the day and don't forget the signage for the parking spot # and where to pay. 3 signs for one set of parking spaces. 3) the ticket was 5 minutes after 6 am so they must have been just waiting for us tourists to mess up, I wasn't the only one. 4) $150!!!! even in NYC isn't as steep.
Not the hotels fault but shame on you Montreal!
