Very happy with my recent 6 day stay at the Le Square Phillips. The hotel is in a good location downtown, the staff are friendly, and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. Some hotels will have a larger selection at the breakfast buffet but I thought it was fine: You get bread, croissants, waffles, cereals, yogurt, eggs, juices, coffee, tea - certainly enough to start my day with a full stomach.
Only two minor gripes: I asked at the reception for a duvet after my first night but that never materialized. The A/C unit is installed right next to the desk, meaning you are sitting in a stream of air when you work at the desk. I partially blocked it with the hotel amenities binder. Problem solved. :-)
As for things to do nearby: The highlight of my trip were the two cat cafes in Montreal (each about a 25min walk from the hotel): Le Cafe des Chats and the Cafe Chats L'Heureux. If you love cats, be sure to check them out.
