We were heading up to Montreal for a concert and a couple days of fun and wanted to stay at a nice place. We booked the W through the Starwood website - got a really good special rate.
Check in: Very easy and proficient. Staff very friendly.
Room: We had a "wonderful" room. Typical sized hotel room IMO. Room was very clean and well appointed. Definately dark...lighting not so good in my opinion. The voyeaur shower was definatley interesting (I thought it was really cool). If you plan to stay at this hotel and share a room with someone, make sure you know them REAL WELL because you'll be seeing all of them.
The concierge was very friendly and helpful.
We did not eat in the hotel restaurants or go to the bar(s).
Location is good. Central between Old Montreal and the St. Catherine St. area. Direct access to the underground/metro station which is a plus, especially in the winter.
We used the valet parking which was a bit steep at $40/day. Valet staff was nice and they got our car quickly when we wanted it.
Overall we had a great stay and I'd stay here again.More
