Pros: Great location next to metro and on bus routes, and the only Marriott property close to gay village Cons: 1) After checking in we found a large stain in the bed sheets 2) elevators always stunk like sweat and barf. We were disgusted each time we stepped a foot in the elevator and covered our noses the whole ride 3) their breakfast was not good. I understand everyone has a different standard for food, but what they made with eggs and all their sausages were bad. Their pastries were stale, making us eat breakfast out every single day 4) walls are so thin you hear neighbors. And doors close heavily, so each time a neighbor was closing their door at night, we were jumping from sleep thinking someone entered our room. And worse, housekeeping would use their loud vacuums in the hallway from 8 in the morning, so if you'd like a good rest while you're on vacation, this is not the place for you 5) their king bed rooms most definitely don't have a king mattress. Our mattress was queen at most 6) when I asked for shower gel, they asked me to go to reception and get it. This is not a big deal, but you'd expect hotel staff to bring basic amenities to the room 7) way overpriced for what it is. An Inn disguised as a 3star hotel that charges more than the fancy 4star hotels just couple blocks down, at the heart of downtown. I was in Montreal for marathon and stayed at this hotel, away from my buddies, so i can be closer to gay village. What a mistake, will never go back to this place again 8) they made a billing error and charged me extra and during check out I pointed that out and they corrected it. But after a few hours they reversed it and charged me incorrectly again. 9) if you are used to bonvoy perks, expect absolutely nothing in this "hotel"

Parking was off-site but the walk to the parking is a short enjoyable 5-6 mins walk. The parking is in the underground of the library and it’s $13 per day.The staff were very helpful. Breakfast was decent. We stayed there for 4 nights and they changed few hot item’s every single day! The hotel is close to major tourist attractions and close to many restaurants. Overall experience including the customer service was worth a 5 star rating!
