This hotel with the funny sounding name is a lovely hotel located in a part of Montréal known as The Triangle. It is on Boul. (Autoroute) Décarie, a major road. There are many restaurants nearby as well as a Walmart.
It is about 20 minutes from Old Montréal. The Metro station is about 5 minutes walk and cabs are plentiful. If going to Old Montréal it is best not to drive because the roads are one big traffic jam and the narrow streets in Old Montréal discourage on-street parking.
There is also a quaint shopping district called Monkland Village about 10 minutes away with metered street parking and a variety of stores and restaurants.
Hotel parking is in a lot adjacent to the hotel. It is ticket access controlled but the desk clerk will provide a ticket which gets you in and out during your entire stay. Parking is 22$ per day. Luggage carts are provided.
The hotel has two restaurants but we didn’t use either. There is also a swimming pool open until September.
Our room was nice sized and the lighting in the bath area was excellent. Not so much for the room itself. There is a vanity mirror that swivels which my spouse loved. She has already told me I have to get one for our master bath at home. Bath towels are large and very absorbent. There is plenty of hot water.
The bed is comfortable. The TV has several channels but is slow to go from one channel to the next and there is no program guide to tell you what shows are on. A fridge is provided but no m’wave.
Vending machines are on 3 of the four floors but the selection is poor.
The entire staff is very polite and helpful. A Concierge is available.
We spent four nights here. This is a definite spot for us when we return.
We spent 2 nights here prior to a cruise. The hotel itself is very nice. Our room was clean, comfortable. If you are a tourist, however, you are very isolated. This hotel is not near the downtown area or Old Montreal. ..
The two on site restaurants are outrageously expensive with poor quality food.
