We arrived extremely early for check-in and were greeted with delicious flavored water and smiling faces. Our room was ready and waiting for us.
The room was more like an apartment than just a hotel room. It had so much storage space I didn’t even know what to do with it all — a bedroom with closets, hallway closets, and dressers throughout the bedroom, hall and bathroom.
The kitchenette was well appointed with everything you might need including a mini fridge, coffee maker, kettle, microwave and dishes.
The hotel was so comfortable, everywhere from the modern lobby to the room to the rooftop. Actually, I think the rooftop might be the best spot in the hotel. Even on cold winter days the pool, sauna, spa and gym should keep you warm inside. The hot tub is perfectly situated just outside the door so there’s minimal time out of the hot water. I really enjoyed the view of the park and rooftops. It was great for sunset watching.
Overall, this is a great place to stay if you want some separate space from your travel partner, a quiet place or just a lot of storage. It is about equal distance to walk to Old Montreal and to McGill University and Mount Royal Park. Both are great places to wander and enjoy the old architecture. Hotel Le Crystal staff are also very helpful to tell you about areas and restaurants to choose for whatever you are looking for including a healthy meal, which is something we asked for and they certainly delivered.
