We'll be back, for SURE!
Posted Oct 10, 2016
I booked this hotel via Expedia on relatively short notice - just two weeks - but we did get a decent deal on our room. On arrival, we elected to use the Valet parking to expedite our check-in. We had calculated that the Valet parking was the best deal in the area. At $32 per day, we had good security, in-and-out privileges and covered parking close at hand. Trust me on this one, you CANNOT do better than this deal, in any metropolitan centre that I am aware of. The service was warm and efficient, with our bags transferred swiftly to our room after we checked in. The room itself was comfortable and well appointed with a King-sized bed. We were located on the 8th floor, facing North and overlooking the Montreal Gallery of Modern Art and the square beside it, with the magnificent colours of Fall on Mount Royal beyond the downtown core...by night, the lights of the Gallery and the city are gorgeous, too. There are numerous restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity, with very easy walking access to Rue St. Catherine for all kinds of mid to high-end shopping. The Old Port of Montreal is a 10 minute walk away, to the South, and I would feel safe walking throughout the whole area, day or night.
The Staff REALLY made our stay...they answered all our questions swiftly and enthusiastically, and were superb ambassadors for their beautiful city. Both my wife and I felt very welcome, and will be returning to this excellent hotel for a longer stay.
