This 26-story property attracts plenty of business travelers, thanks to its location next to the Montreal Convention Center, but it’s a great bet for tourists, too, as Old Montreal is only a stone’s throw away. The contemporary guestrooms feature large windows overlooking the city, work desks and marble bathrooms stocked with Agraria bath products. Work up an appetite with a trip to the hotel’s fitness club, which includes a saltwater lap pool, then head to the Osco! brasserie for dishes like lobster bouillabaisse. Afterward, make your way to the bar, Sarah B., for handcrafted absinthe cocktails delivered to cozy banquettes warmed by a crackling fire.
In the Area
The hotel concierge recommends a morning visit to Bota Bota, a spa housed within a converted ship on the Saint Lawrence River that offers an extensive Nordic Bath designed to eliminate toxins and release stress. Spend the afternoon exploring Old Montreal, where horse-drawn carriages still travel down narrow cobblestone streets. Two must-sees: the Basilique Notre-Dame and the Marché Bonsecours, where visitors can shop for artisanal crafts and dine at Café des Arts, overlooking the Old Port.
How to Get There
The hotel's facilities are fine although you can see the hotel's been around a while. Cleaning staff are particularly corteous and are comfortable conversing both in English and French. The restaurant is somewhat small and gets easily congested. The breakfast menu is too narrow. For all the 12 days I spent at this hotel, the breakfast remained the same and has very few options e.g. only pork sausages and no beef or chicken. Also the muffins seemed not fresh. Also, the lighting in rooms was quite darkish and I had to asked for additional lights, which were promptly granted. The guest services dept is very responsive and friendly. Location-wise, the hotel is well-located close the Montreal Convention Centre, restaurants and the Place D' Arms metro station.
Very nice and cosy. Neat and very friendly staff.Location was very perfect and close to the Palais de Congress. Also very central and breakfast was also good.
Very nice shower and towels were nice and fluffy and neat. Room was big and bed was also very comfortable.
The hotel remain a solid choice for both business and leisure travelers. The hotel is well integrated into the underground city and makes it easy to get around the city even in winter.
The hotel bar never disappoints and remains a great place to grab a drink or two before calling a night. Service does get slow when the bar gets busy.
