In total I spent 5 nights at the hotel in November 2011. It was a wonderful experience.
The hotel location is excellent, a few blocks from Rue Sainte Catherine, Montreal's main shopping street and a 20 / 25 minutes walk from the Vieux Port, one of the Montreal's main tourist attraction and Basilica Notre Dame. Rue Sherbrooke itself where the hotel is located is a trendy area of Montreal with luxury shops and nice restaurants.
External design of the building is sleek and modern as is the lobby which - but it is a minor point - is not very large.
Room decoration is very nice using soft colors and modern furniture. I appreciated the Bose iPod dock as it is always nice to listen your favorite music outside home. Room size in the so called "Superior" rooms is sufficient but some additional square feet wouldn't hurt. The luxury room I occupied during the first 4 nights is much larger and looks like more a junior suite. It corresponds more to the size of teh rooms you expect in a hotel of this category.
However, the strongest point of the hotel is undoubtedly the service. Whether it was in-room breakfast (as I had to leave the hotel before the opening of the restaurant), bringing office staples to the room while I was working in it or taking my luggage to the taxi staff was extremely forthcoming and diligent. Everything I requested came extremely rapidly with a smile.
Breakfast at the Renoir restaurant is great. It is served at the table with a lot of options and always the same quality of service, efficient and professionalism.
Quality of the food served for dinner is also very good.
Not only wouldn't I hesitate to recommend the hotel but for sure I will pick it up again for a stay in Montreal
