We spent 4 days there at the end of July and found the location just perfect, just outside the old city on the Rue St Jean. Everything was a maximum of 15 walk away. The Hotel is under renovation and in general is in good condition.
We had a suite on the 3rd floor and found it spacious, comfortable and with all the necessary amenities. However it could have done with a serious touch up as it was looking a little tired. All suited overlook the atrium pool and have a small balcony. We were a bit too close to the action and could touched the bathers heads!
Noise can be an issue you need to be careful with room selection if you want peace and quiet. The daytime noise from the pool especially with all the kids playing - can be a nuisance and as a result we never the used the balcony. Having said that, many balconies were constantly in use so some must find this attractive. In winter it would probably be quite quaint. On the other side we were far enough away from the Place D'Youville and its nightly music.
The service ranged from top drawer to total disinterest but overall was quite good. For example when we first asked how we could purchase Celine Dion tickets, we were told to look it up on the internet! On the next day we tried again and that concierge walked us outside and pointed out a ticket vendor down the road
We availed ourself of the breakfast package and frankly that is not a good option as it is not a buffet but more of a breakfast "blue plate special" The money can be applied as a credit to other items on the menu so all was not lost. There are many really nice alternatives in the neighborhood which would have been good to try.
Overall a stately old dame which left us with a good feeling. We would definitely go back but would check out the noise issue thoroughly beforehand
