Handy and quiet, with large rooms and underground parking—all rarities in Old Montréal—this fairly basic all-suites hotel attracts families, government employees, and business travelers who want standardized service in an old world location. The rooms all have flat-screen televisions, iPod docking stations, upgraded Wi-Fi, and a wavy-patterned carpet that can be a little hard on tired eyes (renovations are planned for early 2015). The gym, located beside the saltwater
pool, has an inspiring nature mural. Busy rue St-Paul is a block south, the Vieux-Port is a five-minute walk, and Place Jacques-Cartier is three blocks east.
