Visitors to our Montreal hotels can expect a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city that blends the energy of New York with the romance and charm of old world Paris.
Take to the streets of downtown Montreal and explore the museums, mansions and upscale shops of the Golden Square Mile. The Musée des Beaux Arts is one of the most prominent museums in Canada, displaying high-profile exhibitions and an international collection of contemporary art. Francophiles will feel at home among the cafes and bistros on the Rue Saint Denis, while Chinatown offers unique crafts and exotic cuisine. Guests of our Montreal hotels will find the Underground City a welcome refuge during Quebec’s cold winter months. This network of subterranean walkways and shopping malls features restaurants, entertainment venues and more. From the Underground City, you can easily hop on the Métro and tour the unique murals and art installations of Montreal’s subway stations. The orange line will take you to Old Montreal, the historic and cultural heart of the city and a must-see attraction during your Montreal hotel stay. Many of the streets and buildings date back to the 17th and 18th century and juxtapose the modern museums, art galleries and attractions also found in the district. Be sure to stop by the Pointe à Callière (Montreal Museum of Archeology and History) and the spectacular Basilique Notre-Dame. If you’re traveling with children or just young at heart, you’ll enjoy the Montreal Science Center and Cirque du Soleil. Top it off with dinner and drinks on the lively Place Jacques-Cartier.
If you have the opportunity to venture out during your stay in our Montreal hotels, plan a day trip to Parc Jean-Drapeau, the site of the 1967 World Fair. In the summertime, this large green space is an ideal spot for outdoor activities or a concert in the park. It’s also the home of Canada’s Formula One Grand Prix venue, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, and the Montreal Casino. Try your hand at a game of chance or enjoy a decadent meal and the impressive skyline views from one of the casino’s restaurants.
