You can't get any better location, service, breakfast, or atmosphere than this hotel. We can't wait to go back! The bed was so comfy I actually ordered their sheets (never done that before!), the rooms preserved their historic past with hardwood floors and enormous window seats--but the furnishings were simple modern chic. Huge bathroom! We felt very luxurious, but the price is reasonable for the city. Breakfast was amazing--the best croissants and bread and fruit and yogurt and cereal . . . we stuffed ourselves so much we barely wanted the wine and cheese at the evening reception (but it was free, so we went and enjoyed the surprisingly good wine!)
They're located right next to a metro station, which is great for getting to the gorgeous, massive Botanical Gardens and to other places we didn't have time to see--next time! You can't hear the metro at all, and we could see the Cathedrale across the Square/Piazza/Place from us--nice view! Lovely soundproofed windows in the rooms--hotel very quiet despite the room right next door containing a family with young kids--we were surprised to see them coming back from bkfst, never heard a peep inside the room. Hubby borrowed a CD from the front desk to play in the room's cd player--nice touch. And after dinner one night, we asked the front desk person where to buy water--he told us everything was closed, but he went and brought us back several bottles of water for us to take with us the next day on a bike ride! (We used the tasty faucet water in the room to refill them).
Highly recommend the bike ride along the Lachine Canal up to the Lachine Market. The farmer's markets here are amazingly stocked and if you ask the vendors what an unknown fruit or veggie is, they let you taste it! And the bread is delicious everywhere you go.
Back to the hotel (sorry for the tangent): they have great lounges with free pool tables and a fire in the fireplace (yes, even in August--it was for looks only) and flat screen tvs and neat modern sofas. The spa looked nice, as did the rooftop bar--great views of the city and plenty of people watching! The breakfast room is gorgeous: ornate mouldings from the original bank building, tall tall ceilings--lovely setting. Seriously, this place is wonderful, and a 5-minute walk to train station, 10-minute scenic walk to Vieux Montreal and the waterfront. Enjoy!
(Sorry no photos--had to delete from camera cuz ran out of memory while at the gardens!)
