The Good
Overall, the hotel received ample praise for its appearance and atmosphere, attentive staff and central location.

Guests typically enjoyed good sleeps in their spacious rooms. They were often described as clean, with upscale design, enjoyable showers and comfy beds.

The location was a definite highlight. Guests found it convenient to Metro, the Bell Centre, St. Catherine Street, Mount Royal, Dunn's on Rue Metcalfe for Montreal smoked meat, the train station, the airport and McGill University.

The staff were very well liked overall. They were helpful, kind, knowledgeable and provided quick check-in service.

Guests who spoke of the lounge or restaurant invariably enjoyed it. One recent guest wrote, "Great bar for a night cap and great buffet breakfast in the morning!" And another said, "Wonderful restaurant with fresh healthy meals."

Adding value to the stay for some was the well-equipped fitness centre.

Many seemed to feel that the hotel offered very good value.

The Bad
Weaknesses at this hotel surrounded the Wi-Fi service for the most part, which guests gave low scores to, although individual reviewers sometimes commented positively on the Wi-Fi.

Occasionally guests missed having a pool or were disappointed that there was no free breakfast at the hotel.

A few guests missed having drawers for clothes storage in the rooms.

Occasionally a guest judged his room to be a little dated.
