I was very impressed with the hotel. I was going to Montreal for a wedding and wanted to splurge and get something different and "cool". I booked this hotel mainly because I heard the shower was really cool. Check in time is 3 so I asked at the time of reservation if I could get an early check and they said 1 was the best they could try for but couldn't make any promises. We got there at 1 and the room wasn't ready - the wedding was at 2 so we went downstairs to the bathroom and changed. They held out bags for us. When we returned later that night the bags were already in the room and I couldn't believe how HUGE the room was when I walked in. They said it was a suite. I immediately fell in love with the giant window sill. The steps were a little weird and the floor was black so it was hard to see them. I never tripped but thought I was going to a few times. There was a small rug but it was uncomfortable to walk on so we just walked around it. The shower was cool and lived up to expectations. Not sure why I didn't look at a picture beforehand. We didn't even try the breakfast since we'd rather pay to get a better experience. We walked around the corner to eggspectations and it was awesome. There's a parking garage right around the corner as well which we found and parked before we even know the hotel gave a $4 discount if you park there.
I can see how it might not be as good for families, or maybe I lucked out and got the best room, and I live with hardwood floors anyways so that doesn't bother me. My boyfriend and I had a lovely time and when I checked out they remembered who I was and what room I was in before I said anything. I thought that added a nice personal touch. Maybe that's easy to do when they have so few rooms?
