    Hotel Universel Montreal, Montreal
    Unsightly Morning after Party
    The room was fine and clean; however, Sunday morning the hotel lobby, elevator and bathrooms were just filthy after a party that was hosted at the hotel. There should have been cleaning crew on site early in the morning before guests get up in the morning.

    Early AM garbage dumpster noise
    Nice hotel in great location. Great staff. But right outside the window of our room was where 3 dumpsters were located. Easy enough to overlook, close the shade. Until it’s 6am and there’s a garbage truck out there slamming then up and down to empty them. You would think a hotel would not allow their dumpsters to be emptied at that time of day. Garbage truck work all day long.

    Not the most modern
    Hotel cleanliness had a lot to be desired. Restaurant in the hotel looked like the carpets were n ever cleaned. This entire hotel needs to be updated to today's standards.
