Positives: It was elegant and clean nice king sized bed good location to good restaurants, CN tower, etc.

Negatives: All the extra service fees, hotel parking should be free, $20 a day is too much. The hotel cost is enough and things in fridge too much.

Comments: Very nice lobby and rooms but, our room smelled of cigarette smoke and was a non smoking room that was not a pleasant smell. All in all very nice we stayed at Novetel in Montreal and were looking forward to the flat screen TV and updated bathroom. Bar was nice and friendly. Breakfast buffet was really nice.

Positives: Convenient to Downtown and nice pool.

Negatives: Cleaning staff wake you with loud talking out side room so they could get into clean knock on your door several times.

Comments: I like the hotel. The parking should be free as my clean car was covered in dust from construction in parking garage, fine cement dust not good for paint job. Cleaning staff noisy and made you feel you had to get out of your room so they could clean, after three knocks on room even though we where staying another night.
