This is a nice hotel in the heart of downtown Montreal. Very well located if you want to be downtown, close to the metro and many great attractions. We were there for the Jazz festival and it was a nice close walk to the festivities. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms themselves are spacious. But be warned as to which room you stay in. We were on the 2nd floor (there are only 3 levels) and right above the very large restaurant that the hotel basically sits above. The music, specifically the bass, coming from the restaurant was quite annoying. I noted that others have complained of this, and an off site manager has said they had the speakers shielded. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to shield bass. The music started early in the morning and went until at least 130 am most nights.
The other issue was the noise from upstairs. The floors in the hotel are hardwood - and sound from people walking around on the floor above us was very loud. Overall, if you are looking to sleep in at all (or go to be early!), this hotel will make it challenging.
If you choose to stay here, ask for a room on the 3rd floor and as far from the restaurant as possible.
