This hotel was fine...comparative hotels in Montreal start at 100.00 per night + tax. I didnt see one prostitute on the door step and it was quiet.....this was during gaypride and other festival weekends. Others like to complain for the sake of complaining I think.

This hotel should advertise as a "by the hour" establishment. In fact, at night, prostitutes are positioned on corners around this hotel. It is on a street surrounded by sex shops and you have to be buzzed into the lobby through a security gate. The room we were shown was dirty (used plastic utensils in a drawer, food crumbs on a table, furniture that hadn't be dusted in God knows how long, and the extra blanket that was provided was filthy- this was after we had to wait to check-in so that the room could be cleaned!). Walking in the room was like going into a slum apartment in NYC, and you are expected to pay upfront-- probably so you feel locked into staying there rather than fight for your money back. Private bathrooms are optional and we chose a room that had one. It looked fairly clean, but the light switch also turns on the fan which sounded like a small plane taking off. The air conditioner that was in the window was 1/2 the size of what it should have been and the open parts of the window were not covered. After telling the person at the front desk that we didn't feel comfortable staying there as it in no way was representative of the rooms that were pictured online, we were shown another room--the hotel's "VIP" suite. The second room was easily twice the size of the first and was somewhat better furnished (although, there was still no phone in the room) and appeared to be clean (I wasn't in there long enough to thoroughly check), but we were expected to walk through a construction site to get to it! I was told that the hotel is in the middle of remodling and that this is their best room that usually goes for over $200 CAN a night. I thought it was ridiculous to have to pass under a worker who was plastering anytime we wanted to get into our room and told the front desk guy as much. I then had to fight with the manager on the phone to get a refund of the money that I had to pay upfront for our stay. I have never been treated so disrespectfully by the manager of a hotel before. He advised me that their 48 hour cancellation policy would not allow him to refund the full price I had paid- he said he would refund all but two days. We didn't cancel! We showed up and the place was completely unacceptable and not at all what was presented on their website. After some more fighting, he refunded all but one day (which I'm currently disputing with my credit card company since we did not cancel, but left because it was disgusting). I can't imagine any age group or type of traveler that would feel comfortable staying there. The website shows a kind of "barebones" place, but it wasn't even as good as that! I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who would be remotely concerned with hygiene or personal safety.
