The Good
This hotel did not fail to impress guests who left highly positive reviews online.

The staff were a major component of the positive guest stay. They were highly skilled and attentive in providing excellent customer service. Guests loved them and often planned to return, feeling so well cared for.

Guests enjoyed the rooms. They liked the clean lines and large windows with pleasing modern design. Some mentioned enjoying the terraces and views from them and others spoke of their enjoyment of modern showers with plenty of hot water, heated bathroom floors, and comfy beds with quality bed linens. One recent guest wrote, "Our room was a picture out of Architectural Digest."

The location was considered perfect by many guests. It was an easy walk to just about everything one would want to see and do in Old Montreal, art galleries, museums, boutique shopping, historical sites, summer festivals, restaurants and cafes.

Wi-Fi was excellent according to guests.

Many thought the hotel provided great value.

The Bad
There were a few nit picks in otherwise very positive reviews.

Although good, a few guests felt the breakfast was a little pricey with limited menu choices. 

No coffeemaker in the room, or free coffee in the lobby was a disappointment to some guests.

A few guests noted that there was inadequate lighting at night in the guest room, as the lamps were spotty and irregularly placed.

No plates, glasses or utensils in the kitchenettes, according to some guests.

Open layout bathrooms, had glass showers not securely closed off from view, according to some guests.
