The Hotel Elegant gave me everything I needed and expected for my recent trip to Montreal. Compared to other budget hotels in the Latin Quarter area, I was pleased that I was able to wheel my luggage right up and through the front door and then take an elevator up to my 4th floor room. Having air conditioning in my room was also essential, however it would have been nice to have control over it. There were times when it was either too cold or had turned off and we were forced to accept whatever it offered.

Having internet access was extremely useful. This room didn't have wireless acess, so fortunately they lend out internet cables. The outlet, however, is by the phone, which is on the nightstand. So forget working at the little table while sitting in a chair unless you bring your own, really long cord. You'll also need to bring your own way of telling the time, as they don't provide any kind of clock. But I did get a room with a little refrigerator, which was pretty handy. Now I just wish they get around to acquiring coffee makers and maybe microwave ovens, as we had no way of making anything hot to eat. While they offer a continental breakfast, it is served from 8 am to 10 am and we always had to leave by 8 each morning.

The beds are on the too-firm side and the room is not well lit, but the bedding is fine and we had no problems with noisy neighbors (perhaps because the hotel wasn't full). The main switch controls wall-mounted lights over each bed and you can't opt to have one of them off. Then the little bedside lamps are not much better than night-lights. This leaves the dresser side of the room pretty dark at night.

Since the hotel was newly constructed, everything is clean and functions well. There was a hairdryer in the bathroom. At the time of our stay, there was a major construction project across the street, with a fancy new building going up. It's not pretty right now, but there is nothing about this section of the street (Rue St-Hubert) that I'd call "sketchy" (as per another review). Our walk out to the nearby Berri-UQAM metro station or area shopping and restaurants was just fine at all times of the day. OK, there are panhandlers in the neighborhood, but they're everywhere else in Montreal as well. And Rue Ste-Catherine heading east from St-Hubert happens to be the heart of the gay neighborhood, so there were couples and singles cruising for action. But you don't have to walk that way if you're just headed to the metro. Since Berri-UQAM is a main hub station, we had easy access to both the orange and green lines that got us everywhere we wanted to go in just a few short stops.

The service was great. We were able to check in early. And then for our departure, they handled ordering a taxi for us the night before and the taxi was right on time. In all, the Hotel Elegant provided a comfortable and care-free place to stay at a low price.

This hotel is fairly new and very, very clean. It is a good economy budget hotel that has the bare basics, but you are getting good, clean accomodations and service for the cheaper price. The room had a telephone, tv, closet area, big window and full bathroom. There is wireless internet access if you have a computer. Some rooms have mini fridges, but because the hotel is newer they have not finished putting them in every room yet. There is VERY limited parking in the back of the hotel, but a nearby parking lot charges $7 CAD a day. The hotel provides a small breakfast daily (big muffin or croissant, jelly, tea or coffee, glass of OJ) and has a couple drink vending machines. The location in regards to being near exciting/tourist-friendly parts of Montreal is good, but the street itself looks like it may sometimes get sketchy. The street is full of budget hotels and new constructions. We were there during the jazz festival, so the people around the street were okay for the most part, but it definitely looks like the late night crowd during an off season or certain week nights could be very questionable. Still, it is close to the subway, St Catherine and St Denis (exciting streets with stores and nightlife), a 20 - 30 minute walk from McGill and Mount Royal, and a 15 minute walk from the jazz festival and underground mall. The only downside is that the walls are pretty thin, so if there are noisy guests nearby you will probably be able to hear them. We could occassionally hear showers running in adjacent rooms, but enjoyed our stay well enough nonetheless.
