The Good
Overall, the hotel received extensive positive feedback in guest reviews online. 

The staff's service played a large role in the hotel's overall success. Their warm and cordial interactions with guests made guests feel valued and befriended and many wanted to return to this comfortable and cozy place. They also took steps to ensure guest satisfaction, making customer service a priority.

Guests really enjoyed dining on site. They were typically pleased with the continental or a la carte breakfasts, the steak at Mechant Boeuf and the trendy terrace which offered nice views in summer evenings along with good food and drinks. Guests often thought the prices were decent for the quality and quantity of food served.

Guests thought the rooms were great. They offered plenty of space, large well-equipped bathrooms, comfortable beds and a cozy ambiance with exposed brick or stone walls.

The location was also second to none. It was an easy walk to so much of Old Montreal--the port, the shops and restaurants, Chinatown and Metro.

The Bad
There were some complaints found online in the reviews.

Some guests were bothered by noise. They cited the rooftop bar music and guests laughing until 3 am, music from Mechant Boeuf restaurant on site, the club across the street on Rue de la Capitale, street noise (honking horns, night life, garbage pickup, deliveries), and the atrium which channelled noise upward to the rooms which overlooked it. 

Some were disappointed to not have coffeemakers or tea kettles in the guest room.

A few mentioned no views from their rooms.
