Located between St-Jacques and Notre-Dame Streets, this square dates from the late 17th Century. Surrounding it are many of the original buildings from subsequent historical eras, including Notre-Dame Basilica and the St-Sulpice Seminary. At the center of the square is a statue of Paul de Chomedey, the "Sieur de Maisonneuve" and founder of Montreal. Most tourists today also know the square as the place where they can find a calèche ride through the streets of Old Montreal.
Loved it first time.Second time 2007 housekeeping was not as good. It was somewhat disappointing.
It lacked the sparkle from 2006 & that's just a year.
This was our 13th year for Visiting Montreal and overall it was, for the first time, a bit of a downer.
My husband and I spent 4 nights here in mid-September. The location was great - one block to Notre Dame, 3 minute walk to Old Montreal and the Metro stop right down the hill. We heard complaints of noisy rooms but we were lucky enough to be put in the building furthest from the restaurant/bar. We were also lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite! The room was large, clean and comfortable with a modern feel. We had a TV and a DVD player. We loved the rain shower head in the bathroom. The elevators and staff (i.e. housekeeping) were painfully slow by our face-paced standards, but we were on vacation so we weren't in a hurry. Parking is also expensive but we could not find any place cheaper to leave our car in the area.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. And I would suggest you look on the hotel's internet site for the best rate (and scroll ALL THE WAY to the bottom of the page for the cheapest rate). We found it cheaper to go directly to the hotel's site rather than use a travel website.
The room was not ready at the 3 pm checkin time. Told us to come back. The TV did not work in the room. Hardly any electrical outlets. I didn't have children with me but I can see how they could get hurt on so many things here. I will not stay here again.
