The hotel also offers a complimentary hot/cold breakfast every morning, as well as tea and biscuits every day from 4 to 6 pm. There is a small exercise room with a few cardio machines and a sauna that is open 24 hours. Valet parking is available for $27/day, with in and out privileges.

There are also suites, which feature 1 king-size bed, electric fireplace, sitting area, and bathroom jacuzzi tub. All rooms come with a 32-inch LCD flat panel TV, an in-room safe, a coffeemaker, bathrobes, a hair dryer and an iron with board. Some rooms come with a desk, so guests requiring a workspace may want to request one when booking. 

The hotel is a 4-minute walk to Guy-Concordia metro station. The bus station is 3km from the hotel and the train station is about 2km from the hotel. Both are easily accessible by public transportation. Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport is about 20km from the hotel.

The Bad
While the hotel received many positive comments for its charm and elegance, there were some comments from reviewers who found the hotel to be too old for their preferences.

A few reviewers said the hotel was in need of upgrading, and that the décor was dated, rather than charming. Some found the rooms to be a bit small and others said they could hear everything in the rooms beside theirs due to the hotel's thin walls. As well, there is no elevator in the hotel, and some guest reviewers said the staircase was quite steep. 

There were also comments from a few guests who were disappointed their rooms did not have desks or work spaces, and that they were unaware they had to request a room with one.
