O’er The Saint Lawrence
Some hotels will get you close to one or two landmarks. Others will give you a chance to get away from it all while being near a major highway into the city. The hotels near Jacques Cartier Bridge in Montreal will give you a little bit of both, plus a whole lot more. Instead of just sleeping the night through near a highway, freeway, or byway, these hotels will give you direct access to the steel expanse of the third busiest bridge in all of Canada. Though the bridge was dreamt up as early as 1874, its official groundbreaking didn’t occur until 1925 and it took five years to open it to public traffic. In the end, it took 33,000 tons of steel to construct and measured over 11,000 feet in length. It runs from Montreal Island to the south shore of Longuiel, Quebec and in its travels over the historic Saint Lawrence, it stops off at Ile Sainte-Helene, home to the Parc Jean-Drapeau and La Ronde amusement park.
Not only is the bridge a very convenient, and popular way to get from one side of the river to the other, but also is an excellent stop between attractions. It’s a beautiful icon of the city, a tourist attraction in its own right. That means that not only will you be getting excellent convenience with your room or suite at the hotels near Jacques Cartier Bridge in Montreal, you’ll also be getting the chance to witness the marvels of modern construction in the province. In fact, its design influenced other great bridges, like the Story Bridge in Australia and the J.C. Van Horne Bridge in New Brunswick.
