"Only hotel close enough to walk to Botanical gardens, Biodome, etc. About 10 kms from downtown, so it's a bit of drive, especially in traffic. Front desk very helpful; pool warm and clean. Bed comfortable. Room size is just okay. Restaurant is average at best. FREE parking which is very cool. Allows dogs, I guess, because I heard one. Quiet two nights. The A.C. couldn't be set lower, so the idea that you control the climate is not true. Overall, good experience. I couldn't afford to stay in Old Montreal and wanted accessibility to at least some of the stuff we wanted to visit. Thank you."
