Hotel review by guest is Negative
Linda from North Bennington, VT US rated St. Paul Hotel Montreal 5 out of 10 on October 26, 2003 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"The staff and the restaurant were outstanding. My so-so rating had to do with the rooms - way too small, particularly for two people. The closet was a joke and there was little room to move around. The bathroom size was ok, but there were no towel rakes for hand towels or bath towels and no stopper for the sink. The room was clean, but the lobby was not and it looked shabby and in need of some tender care, and perhaps some personal touch - flowers, or a picture or something. The "chic" in the description was carried too far."
