This former student dormitory turned part hotel, part luxury downtown Montreal apartment is an interesting concept in itself. Apparently not only can you purchase a condo of your own, but if you really like your hotel room and should feel so inclined, you can make an offer and own it as a little pied a terre in the city. One of the nicest features is located at the center of the lobby, an open air patio accessible all year long and heated in the winter is a pretty sweet place to kick back for a few minutes while using one of the rentable lap tops. The rooms are a little funky, minimalist, but not lacking anything; not sure if I would buy one to live in, but for short stopovers it would certainly do the job. The outdoor terrace facing the Montreal SAT offers a pretty good view of the Main and even though there is no restaurant, the proximity to China Town ensures there are always good eats available.

This is a NICE hotel. Super new and newly renovated. Hotel Zero-1 looks like it was once a hostel but is renovated to be a full service hotel. It is conveniently located on Rene Levesque and St. Laurent, so the Airport express bus stops very close to it, and you can easily walk up St. Laurent to get to anywhere that matters in Montreal.
The lobby is very hip and the check-in staff are very helpful and down to earth. Each room is very nicely furnished with modern furniture, colourful lighting but the rooms have a dark finish that is more night clubby. Each room has its own kitchenette with a sink, microwave and fridge so you have a place to heat up your leftovers and even entertain.
The IP phone system means you can make free long distance calls anywhere in the world. I asked the staff if they would ever change it and they said "we figure the cost is covered when you come to stay here next". Great philosophy. The technology support is great. Each room has its own wireless router, although upload rates seem quite slow.
Breakfast is great too. Complimentary assortment of fruit, yogurt, and pastries. The Muffins are some of the best muffins I've ever had, seriously.
There is a gym, but it's not much to write home about. I wouldn't ding them for it but I wish they had some free weights. There's a nice deck with a great view on the 5th floor. South facing rooms have a much better view of the skyline of Old Montreal. Ask to be put in one of those.
Just awesome awesome value. I'm a huge fan.
