My lady came to Montreal to see me and we had already had a lousy experience with an Old Montreal hotel. The Plateau Royale is located on a main but quieter street (Park Avenue), maybe 20 minutes walk from downtown, very close to buses and subways, and what I thought were extremely good rates. (I agree that if you have a car this is not the hotel you want,. But we do not.) The breakfast is absolutely nothing special and we skipped it most days.
The rooms were basic, but the first one had a working TV, decent space, comfortable bed, free wifi, and only a few stairs to go down. (NONE of which were included at our last hotel.) When we decided to stay a third night, we moved across the hall into a room that frankly was not ready for visitors (no shelf in bathroom, no closet, not even a dresser for our clothes, and a poor view if a parking lot and we should have had a discount for that inconvenience). Still, the staff was courteous, helpful and friendly, lending us a DVD player, helping fix a broken toilet, providing us with extra sheets and towels, and certainly accommodating.
Because of the rates/location, I will very likely stay at this hotel again. I agree that (at least in the second room) the walls were thin enough to hear what was going on in the other rooms but not so distracting as to keep us awake when we went to sleep. And for a couple's getaway, you are either in bed, sleeping or not, or not in your room. For what WE needed, the price and service were just short of excellent (WOULD have been excellent had we been allowed to retain our room). YMMV
