St. Paul Hotel  Not exactly practical but I liked the copper colour and velvet effect sofa which gave the uncomplicated room a much needed lift.

Highs & Lows

  • Good location if you’re after Old Montreal.

  • Bed was mighty comfy!

  • Views of the town were nice.

  • 10th floor is too noisy due to the outdoor air-con.

  • Mini-bar charges $5.50 for a Snickers bar! Steer well clear.

  • Cannot open windows.

  • The telephones are from 1970’s. I swear!
