We stayed here from August 4 to 7, 2017. We have stayed in a previous Quality Hotels before and I found them to be very reliable in terms of cleanliness, affordability, safety, has free wi-fi, and comfortable. We got to Quality Hotel Midtown in Montreal by 5 p.m. and checked in. The check-in process was easy. I was impressed with how big the lobby and foyer were! I liked that they had free vehicle parking for guests. However, we did notice that their parking lot was quite small. It was a good thing that we had arrived early on a Friday before the Civic holiday rush because I’m not sure how other guests that checked in after us would have gotten a parking spot. Perhaps the hotel gives them a parking pass to park on the nearby side streets or something?
Our room was a standard one with a queen-sized bed, TV, drawer, desk, complimentary toiletries in the bathroom. We had a window overlooking the highway actually. Thankfully even though we were near the highway it wasn’t noisy from the traffic. I believe there was a mini-fridge in the room as well.
There was a complimentary breakfast provided on the ground level in the kitchen and adjoining large dining room. This Quality Hotel was so much larger than the other one we’ve been to. Breakfast in the morning was a bit of a scramble with a lot of guests stopping in for breakfast too. The space was large though so there were plenty of tables to sit at. The food offered were the standard scrambled eggs and bacon, toast, fruit, yogurt, etc. We ate here for breakfast on the last day before leaving and the breakfast was good.
They have a small gym in the lower level (the basement, I guess). They also have a microwave downstairs too (so handy). The first time we attempted to use the gym, it was occupied with a whole family and their kids taking over the gym (Civic holiday busyness). Thankfully, the next morning we were able to try out their gym when it was empty. They have a rowing machine in there!
This hotel is located close to the Plamondon subway Metro station, about a 10-minute walk. There’s also a bus that you can take to the subway station since there was a bus stop right outside of the hotel.
The hotel is right off of the highway in a residential neighbourhood.
My suggestion is that if you are visiting Montreal, you should check out the local spots that you want to visit and then find a hotel that’s close by. Every day, we “commuted” to the Mont Royal subway station since that’s where most of our interests and attractions were. It wasn’t bad and I believe we got a good deal considering our stay was during the Civic holiday and hotels weren’t cheap during high seasons.
