Editor's Analysis
Updated Dec 10, 2014

Its location near the Palais des Congrès convention centre and near the many attractions of Old Montreal make it a popular choice for guests visiting Montreal for either business or sightseeing. 

The hotel offers many amenities for its guests. Its dining and bar options are well-known and popular with locals as well as many visitors. Its award winning restaurant, Aix Cuisine du Terroir, specializes in Quebec cuisine and is open for dinner every day from 5:30 to 11:00pm. The hotel's other restaurant, Suite 701, also doubles as a bar/lounge, and is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Late at night it turns into a nightclub and is open until 1 am on weeknights, and 3 am from Thursday to Saturday. There is also a rooftop terrace, the Terrasse Place d'Armes, which is open every day for lunch and dinner and until 3am from Thursday to Saturday. There is also a spa and fitness centre. 

The hotel offers indoor parking with valet service and unlimited in-and-out privileges for $32/day plus taxes, and free wireless Internet is available in all rooms and common areas. 
There are 81 guest rooms and 52 suites in the hotel. Guest room options are: c

All rooms feature brick walls, hardwood floors, a walk-in rain shower or bath/shower and upscale bath amenities, and plush goose down duvet and pillows.

For guests requiring more space and amenities there are different suite options: junior suite, junior suite with balcony, executive suite, and penthouse suite. In addition to the standard amenities, all suites feature a jetted tub and electric fireplace. The executive and penthouse suites also feature a separate living area.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Place d'Armes metro station which is in a complex that also houses the  Palais Des Congrès convention centre. It is about 20km from Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, and a 10 minute metro-ride to both the train station (at Bonaventure metro), and the bus station, (at Berri-UQAM metro).

The hotel's location in Old Montreal makes it within 5 to 10 minutes' walking distance of the area's many attractions, such as its renowned restaurants, the Notre-Dame Basilica, the Pointe-à-Callière Museum of Archaeology, the waterfront area of the Old Port, and the Bonsecours Market. It also a few minutes walk to Montreal's Chinatown district and to the restaurants and nightlife on St. Laurent Boulevard. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk to the downtown core (all distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps).
The Good
Overall, the hotel received abundant praise from nearly all the reviews consulted for this analysis, especially for its atmosphere, rooms, service and location.

Numerous guest reviewers praised the hotel's "contemporary and elegant" design and atmosphere. Many reviewers appreciated the blend of old and new, with one remarking that the hotel was "a nice combination of modern luxe and old world charm". Several guest reviewers enjoyed the lively ambinece of the hotel's bars at night and the service and quality of the food and drinks overall. 

There was ample praise for the rooms and suites as well. Like the hotel itself, many reviewers enjoyed the blend of old and new in the rooms, with comments such as "chic and comfortable" and "luxurious but still historic". There were many comments praising the rain-showers and "luxurious" bedding and linens. One reviewer on holiday with his wife wrote that, "the hotel and room was so beautiful we didn't see as much of Montreal as we wanted because we felt like staying in the room!"  Another reviewer said that "our room was phenomenal, so much so that I panicked thinking we had accidentally booked a suite."

The staff service was also described numerous times as being excellent, courteous, helpful and friendly. Front desk, concierge, restaurant-bar, cleaning, and valet staff all received many positive comments in the reviews analyzed.

Numerous reviewers also enjoyed the hotel's proximity to the city's nightlife and dining options, as well as the many cultural attractions of Old Montreal.
The Bad
Overall, there were very few negative comments about the hotel in the reviews consulted.

There were a few guest reviews that described incidents whereby the rooms were not as clean as they would have liked, or remarked that some minor maintenance issues needed to be addressed. And while the hotel's rooms received mostly glowing praise, a few reviewers who had stayed in the standard rooms housed in 'Building One' found their rooms to be too small. 

A few guests travelling with cars found the hotel's $28/day valet parking service a little expensive.
