I wish I could award 4 1/2 to this hotel. It has a superb location right next to the Notre Dame Basilica in the heart of Old Montreal. There is an ample selection of restaurants and nice shops within easy walking distance of the hotel.
The room itself was spacious, modern and had a nice Nespresso machine to use free of charge (picture included). We were right over the entrance of the St.Sulpice, looking over the cobblestone street. The staff was very friendly, and the concierge was particularly helpful in our selection of restaurants that were appropriate for two teenage boys.
Now, the only downside. The WiFi didn't work. At all in my experience, briefly for one of my boys. The network constantly seemed overwhelmed. When I went to the lobby to see if it was better, there was another guest walking around with his laptop. He and a staff member were trying to find a stronger signal. Does this matter on vacation? It really shouldn't, but I had failed to make a printout of a reservation for a bike tour, and I could not retrieve the location from GMail. Fortunately, there was a lobby computer I was able to use. However, if you need to VPN into work while on business this could be a big issue.
Otherwise, this is a superb hotel. If they fix the WiFi it will be hard to beat.More
