I was very pleased with Hotel St. Denis and my experience there this past weekend (Remembrance day weekend) with my sister. I had read positive reviews here on tripadvisor and decided to book it while taking advantage of their 2nd night half off promotion.
Pros: 1) Super excellent location, close to everything and the metro which takes you pretty much anywhere in no time. 2) A great staff and service! Very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and helpful in every possible way. 3) The rooms were great for the price, very basic but with everything you would need on a basic level and very CLEAN (including washroom). The best part was the bed, it was super comfortable (we had the king bed booked). Our room came with ironing and blowdryer facilities. Decent WIFI. 5) They have nice promotions from time to time, we had booked our room with second night 50% off plus received a great coupon book with many attractions and dining options available to us for cheaper prices! 4) They have a really nice common room too, complete with a vending and ice machine, newspapers and brochures for different attractions, TV and sitting area. 5) Some people have said that their key cards did not work properly, we had no problems with it. It swiped just fine each time.
Cons: These were really negligible for us. 1) Noise. We had requested for a quiet room and it was indeed at the back of the building on the 3rd floor, but still experienced some noise whether from the staff cleaning up in the mornings outside the doors, or people walking and talking by, and the outside noise from the back of the building (garbage trucks). The walls are somewhat thin and since the hotel is in one of the prime areas (latin quarter), you cannot expect it to be 100% quiet. This may be an issue for light sleepers but it was no big deal for us. Overall I found the hotel to be very quiet and comfortable. 2) Small elevators. 3) The heating from the radiator made the room super hot, it was hard to control the temperature in the room, this was my only real complaint. 4) bathroom soap, lotion, and shampoo are provided, but no slippers or toothpaste so be prepared to bring your own.
I would definitely come back to this hotel again when in Montreal. It was a very good experience for a low budget affair.
