2 Floors Short of a Penthouse!
This is a good quality bottom-end up-market hotel and if you can get a room here at a reasonable price then go for it. Rooms are cosy with comfortable beds, immaculately clean (tho' I didn't have a soak in the bath and so no chance to check under the sink etc ;)) and with all the bits and bobs expected of a 3* plus establishment - I reckon that they only get 3 and a half stars 'cos they only provided one bathrobe in our double room! Service is friendly, bi-lingual and generally helpful with check-in and out swift and hassle-free. The hotel has 106 rooms over its 12 floors with floor 12 being the "presidential" suites and 14 the penthouse both of which can only be accessed if your keycard is duly programmed - ours wasn't and so we only got as far as the 10th :(
The hotel offers a fine-dining restaurant with room service, a mini-bar and an interesting tray of combestibles in the room but the glaringly obvious lack of price lists for any of these always makes me a bit wary and so the six-pack from the Depanneur round the corner, which incidentally fitted neatly into the unused space in the mini-bar fridge, solved that dilemna.
A couple of little minor niggles included the grey-ish decor (not that I particularly took notice) and that the advertised internet access throughout the hotel wasn't available - according to the duty manager it should have been up and running the week before but he did offer us use of the facilities at the hotel's upmarket sister across the road (Chateau Versailles) and so neither of these were major gripes.
Unique Quality: What is excellent about this hotel is its location on the north-west periphery of downtown allowing easy walking access to pretty much everywhere including the main shopping street of St Catherine's, the Museum of Fine Arts and most other noteworthy sites. As equally excellent is that it is just out of the way enough to also allow easy access to the local shops, bars and restaurants the exploration of which could have kept me quite happily occupied for a tad longer than a 2-day break ;)
Directions: Just over a block north of Guy Concordia Metro and then either just around the corner to your left or another block to your left depending on which exit you take!!
Le Meridien Versailles
Le Meridien Versailles sounds ritzy and exspensive, and it was, except that we were fortunate enough to land ourselves an excellent per night rate via the internet, something I recommend if you'd like to stay here. This is a European-syle boutique hotel. It is on the small side, allowing them to offer personalized service in a warm, comfortable atmosphere. They have a gym as well as a restaurant with full room service and the option for breakfast to be delivered to your room each morning. You receive your choice of an English or French language newspaper daily.
Le Meridien is located on Sherbrooke St. in the heart of the "museum mile", just down the road from the famous Ritz Carlton. There is a metro station only 1 block away and it is within walking distance to St. Catherine & Crescent Streets and all of their fashionable restaurants, shopping, and clubs.
Unique Quality: They have a long list of ammenities available for guests here. Among them are babysitting, valet parking, dry cleaning, and turn down service. Children under 16 are free.
