Staff excellent. Room not ready when we arrived but they were very nice, friendly and accommodating. Here for a short stay.
Rented a 2 bedroom suite as we were with my 90 year old mother and she needed to rest privately during our stay. Parking is tight and challenging for a larger vehicle, but not unusual for Montreal or other older Eastern cities like Ottawa. Cost for parking about normal range. Since Montreal has terrific cab service, we parked the car and travelled by taxi. One can walk 2 blocks to St-Catherine, the busy shopping area... lots of restaurants, stores, etc. Starbuck 2 blocks down on St-Catherines.
Nice view of Mont Royal from living room...balcony a little scary with metal rail....not crazy about heights. Room is quite old, but had newer furniture.... the lay-out is old style, with bedrooms in a row down a narrow hallway...but very large walking closet. Full kitchen, dining, living room, etc. Bathroom a little small but good hot shower. Lobby is very modern and attractive, elevators newer. Breakfast good.
I read issues with elevators... it is because there are only 2, and they are quite small....and in the morning you have people going down for breakfast, or returning to their suites with food, and people checking out all around the same time... very busy so slow service...otherwise at other times, no problem.
Overall great stay, would stay there again....and have stayed at many Marriott Residence Inns all across North America. Many way more modern.
