My spouse and I had a stay in a standard room at this hotel many years ago and were not particularly happy then about being placed in a tiny room right above the lounge (we had to endure loud music / bass and yelling outside the window late night and a water shutdown in the morning).
This time around I decided to reserve a Junior Suite in the second building (Banque du Peuple) that was available through the Montreal Tourism site (Fall Sweet Deal) and I am glad that we chose to give this hotel another try. The location is great (if you want to stay in Old Montreal), walking distance to plenty of restaurants and shopping. The room was very spacious and cozy (w. fireplace and a comfortable sofa!), the bathroom roomy and clean (the water pressure in the shower was ok, not great). Some people may consider the suites dark but I loved the dark wood and decor and the multiple options of lighting that allowed us to set whatever ambiance we wanted. Internet connectivity was not bad but we decided to upgrade to high-speed for the last day (since we tend to travel with a lot of mobile devices).
Staff at the door and the desk were welcoming and very helpful. There was a confusion with my payment after the trip which was resolved promptly and efficiently via email by the Front Office Manager.
