There's many things to love about this place. The physical space is open, light and airy. The balcony overlooks a public garden space and a view of the colorful neighbourhood. The gay village is really the best place to be, as it is central to the other main neighbourhoods such as the Plateau and downtown. The village itself is a great place to be - full of restaurants, bars, clubs, and great cafes.
The metro is a 3 minute walk away (Beaudry Metro), and will get you anywhere you need to go.
