Hotels in Montreal

Whether you’re heading to Montreal on a family vacation, weekend getaway, or a business trip, hotels in Montreal are waiting to welcome you, help with creating new memories, and leave you ready to plan your return trip. The island in Quebec is the second largest city in Canada, and is primarily French speaking, although most restaurant, hotel, and attraction employees know English as well. Montreal makes for a great day or weekend trip from the northeastern U.S. states, like Vermont and New York, or a quick flight from major cities.

Attractions

In the summer of 1976, Montreal held the Olympics in their just-completed Olympic Park, which has become a landmark and a popular attraction for visitors. The Montreal Tower, leaning at a 45 degree angle, welcomes guests to the summit to get a new perspective on the city! The Stadium, with over 50,000 seats, hosts events and offers guided tours. Next to the ParcOlympiquede Montreal is the JardinBotaniquede Montreal, or the Montreal botanical gardens, a beautiful place for a picnic. There’s a metro stop, Station Pie-IX, right at the corner of both the stadium and the gardens, making it a convenient trip from any of the hotels in Montreal.

A popular stop on many visitors lists, and a regular part of a local’s week is the Notre-Dame Basilica church in Old Montreal. The beautiful detail and breathtaking interior supply those who visit the opportunity to experience the raw talent of architectural greats. The original chapel was completed in the late 1600s and has undergone multiple additions to bring it to it’s glory that visitors can enjoy today. Guided tours are available for a small fee, along with an exciting light show that displays the history of Montreal and the creation of the Basilica – perfect for all ages.

If you’re looking for an afternoon walk, early morning run, or evening stroll, head to Mount Royal Park. Open year-round, and free to all, the Park sits nearly 760 feet above ground level offering stunning views of downtown Montreal from the highest point in the city. Don’t forget the camera for this adventure.

Old Montreal

If there isn’t a specific business or attraction you need to stay near, consider hotels in Old Montreal; or at least visiting. This is one of the oldest areas in Montreal and is filled with charming restaurants and boutiques. The Embassy Suites by Hilton Montreal, InterContinental Montreal, and the Marriott SpringHill Suites Old Montreal are all hotels in Montreal near the Old Port area that are ready to be your home while in the city.

Strolling down the cobblestone streets, visitors are taken by the old European feel, with unique architecture. Walking tours and horse and buggy rides are great ways to take in as much of what Old Montreal and the Old Port offer. Place Jacques-Cartier is a nice location to experience all of this, a sunny square where people have been enjoying the weather and each other for generations.

While there are countless stores and dining options all over, Marche Bonsecours is a heritage building, and a must-see attraction, filled with 15 boutiques selling local crafts, clothes, and a variety of other products. In the summer months, restaurants welcome guests to enjoy local produce on patios!

Museums

Montreal has an interesting history and has built a beautiful city. This is evident in the amazing way it is presented through numerous area museums. This includes the Pointe a Calliere, Montreal’s museum of archaeology and history, the Museedes Beaux-Arts de Montreal, showcasing the loveliest fine art, and the Biodome Montreal, that shows four ecosystems, and helps visitors learn more while sparking an interest in protecting the environment.

If you’re interested in visiting museums while in Montreal, how about purchasing one of Montreal’s museum passes. There are three options that include two choices for a three-day pass, one with public transportation included and one without, or for those who visit the area often, a year long pass is available. Check in with your front desk or concierge at your choice of the hotels in Montreal.

Day Trips From Montreal

Fill a backpack, grab a snack, and head out from your hotel in Montreal to hang with the animals, ride some rides, or float down the lazy river at one of these day trips. About an hour away from downtown Montreal is the Aquadome in LaSalle, an indoor water park with fun for the whole family- regardless of the weather!

La Ronde Amusement Park is a great day trip, filled with rides and events that are fun for the whole family. La Ronde is owned and operated by Six Flags, located on Ile Sainte-Helene between Montreal and Longueuil. The station Station Berri-UQAM’s yellow metro line 4 leads right to Station Jean-Drapeau, which is on the island itself.

For animal lovers, the Zoo deGranby is about an hour to the east, another day trip option when staying at a hotel in Montreal! Home to 1,000 animals, visitors can spend the day learning about exotic animals and loving the traditional zoo experience.

Festivals

Montreal, but specifically Parc Jean-Drapeau, is known for hosting numerous festivals throughout the year. Parc Jean-Drapeau is an island between Montreal and Longueuil, accessible by metro. At the end of July, Osheaga Music Festival and Arts brings thousands to the Parc to present new artists along with well-known internationally famous bands.

Through the month of July, the Just For Laughs Festival presents the biggest names in comedy, where the audience gets to laugh for days, and newer comedians get discovered!

The Montreal International Jazz Festival is by far one of the most widely known and attended, with over two million attendees at the worlds largest annual jazz festival. Thousands of artists fill the city with music coming from the blocks around 400 Boulevard deMaisonneuve in Downtown Montreal.

Night life

Montreal night life is not something to miss out on while you’re in the area. One place to check out would be the nightclubs and bars on and around St. Catherine street, an area known for having a variety of clubs, with something for everyone, like Upstairs Jazz Bar and Grill on the corner of Rue St. Catherine and Rue Mackay. Rue Saint-Denis also has numerous late-night venues, like Bar Le Saint-Sulpice. Check out the surrounding blocks for more fun not far from the hotels in Montreal!
