An icon from the 1967 Olympics, this 36-floor skyscraper overlooking Place du Canada attracts business guests and families alike with its electronic gadgetry, indoor links to the métro and Underground City, and great views. Distinctive half-moon windows give the rooms wonderful views of Mont-Royal to the north and the St. Lawrence River to the south and east. While the lobby and halls could use a full renovation, the cozy rooms have been completely updated, with "plug
and play" desk consoles for electronic devices and an extra privacy door for the bathroom. Free Wi-Fi was also added, and each room has climate control. Convenient underground passageways connect the hotel with the Bonaventure métro station and Place Ville-Marie, but opt to spend one night in at the gastro-pub restaurant in the lobby, run by Executive Chef Richard Edwards.
