After the Ottawa city tour, it was another 2 hours’ drive for us to reach Montreal for our dinner before heading to our “home” for 2 nights – Holiday Inn Express Hotel Montreal Airport, which is about 5 minutes from Dorval-Trudeau International Airport (YUL).
The hotel decor is modern and clean, so different from the previous night’s accommodation at Toronto! Check out my photos below. 🙂
We were so glad to enter a spacious, clean and modern room after a night of bad experience at Toronto Don Valley Hotel. A pleasant surprise too when we saw the microwave above the coffee maker, although we did not make use of it. With a full-length mirror and a cushioned chair near the door, the hotel management seems thoughtful enough to think about its convenience for guests to sit down comfortably to wear their shoes and check the mirror for the last time before leaving the room. 😛
The complimentary toiletries provided in the bathroom (shampoo, conditioner and body lotion) were fragrant and I thought the conditioner did quite a good job in making my hair smooth too. 🙂 The gym and indoor pool on the left side of level 1 were cool too, and we saw jacuzzi and sauna facilities too at the indoor pool area. Of course there was free and stable wireless internet connection throughout the hotel. 😉
Breakfast for the next 2 mornings were also a delight for me. Although it may not boast a scenic view of the Falls like Sheraton on the Falls, or provide unique food such as eggs benedict, I think it can be considered as the next-best breakfast (after Sheraton) I had during this trip haha.
I think the breakfast was good because of the crepe maker (actually I would call them pancakes instead of crepe :p) hehe. I had fresh hot crepes for both mornings and I love the cool machine that could produce 2 fresh crepes within 2 minutes just at the click of a button! The other food and beverages provided such as bread, hashbrown, different types of tea bags etc were also quite nice. Thus this was one of the rare breakfast places where I would take more than 1 serving lol.
Thankful that we stayed here for 2 nights so that I could enjoy myself at this hotel longer!
