Good location.....but not a Plus.

This place is located well. St. Catherine Blvd. is one block away. The visitor's center is a quick three blocks. City tours generate from there. Fine restaurants are within walking distance (Reuben's for smoked meat sandwiches) The Underground is easily accessed, and McGill University and museums are blocks away.
Now for the hotel. Our room, 507, was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The housekeeping staff did clean late in the afternoons sometimes, but we had a 'do not disturb' sign on the door in the morning until 11.
I am turned off by plastic cups and paper cups for the in room coffee machines. Why can't Best Westen provide glass instead of eco unfriendly waste?
There is a restaurant located on site, so there is not a complimentary breakfast.
There is a bar located on site, but it is not affiliated with BW. We asked to borrow two wine glasses, but that was not 'allowed'.
There is a bell man who sometimes is at the front door, but he is only allowed to take your luggage from the curb down three steps or elevator to the lobby, he can't take your things to the room. (!?)
Parking is on the next block in a garage. It cost us $71 for four nights, with no in and out privileges. (Luckily we didn't need a car in the city)
Huge construction site across the street was very noisy during the week, make sure you request a quiet room away from Drummond Street.
We paid a premium price for this room, but I don't see why it should be called a Plus.
Weigh your options before booking this hotel. less
