Location is a big draw for the Best Western Ville-Marie Hotel & Suites, which is situated in downtown Montreal, next to McGill University, and adjacent to the shops, cafes, and shopping centers of Saint-Catherine, one of the city’s largest commercial districts. The heart of downtown is just a short walk away. There's a Lebanese restaurant downstairs as well as a lunch cafe, popular with locals who work in the area for a quick sandwich or Wi-Fi. The large rooms, with their standard, chain-hotel style, are in definite need of a visual update, and possibly the occasional mechanical one; some guests have complained of noisy plumbing. Overall, though, it's an affordable and well-situated option for those who aren't looking for a distinctive aesthetic experience.
