Had a nice walk around the old port of Montreal, this morning before we headed of to find the infamous Schwartz smoked meat deli where they officially make the best sandwich on the planet before we all headed back to the old town for the fireworks and the countdown to midnight !!! We meet up with all the friends we made in Toronto who had also come up to Montreal for New Years, so we sat in our mates hotel room and had a few drinks before we headed out ...
... cathedral I have ever visited.
We could have got the Metro home but we decided to walk and this meant having to leave the comfort of the underground tunnel network. So we walked for 30 minutes or so in the pouring rain and got very wet. It was ok though as we knew soon we would be home and could take off our wet clothes.
The day finished off on a high weather wise thanks to an impressive rainbow, see photos.
Our final full day ...
... power Canada has got stuck in when it mattered. Backing up the British in WWI made their name as an independent state internationally, but they've also got their hands dirty in most conflicts since. I skipped through these sections quite quickly as I already know a bit about them. Even so, within two hours of being there calls that the museum was closing meant that there was plenty I hadn't had chance to see. Having walked past and looked through the windows I know ...

After our look around, we made our way back down to downtown. We went to Firegrill for a late lunch around 3:00. We shared the 18oz steak with scallops and vegies, and we were very stuffed when we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Auberge du Vieux-Port Montreal
So So Stay at the AUBERGE
We stayed for one weekend in one of the suites they have available- @ a separate location from the main hotel. While the room was spacious and well equiped, the bathroom was dated and small. Great fireplace, clean sheets, air control in room, furniture really nice. But the smell from the restaurant downstairs was horrible! Nothing like burnt onions too ruin your stay. I had my husband buy air freshener from across the street. Valet parking great. So other than a few glitches it was a pretty nice stay. Reasonably priced too.
Great place. Excellent rooms and service. Breakfest was terrific and staff friendly attentative and helpfull. Only problem is they would not take a reservation for next summer yet.
My wife, son and self stayed here two nights last April 2002. Liked it very much HOWEVER the valet parking service managed to scrape and dent the side door (to a tune of c. $500 U.S. damages.) First, they did not tell us and we didn't notice it until we got near home. A call to them, then two subsequent letters went UNANSWERED. Don't they have insurance for this sort of thing? (Lucky it was only a Ford and not a Rolls or Jag!) These accidents do happen. What we disliked was their IGNORING our appeal which was reasonable. Consequently, we don't recommend you go to this otherwise friendly establishment unless you walk. A case of good staff, bad ownership/management we guess.
Had a wonderful week-end. Great place to relax!
Great Hotel in the Historical Center
I went here with my best friend and his family a little less than a year ago for the opening of a new Cirque show. The hotel was a big part of the experience. The whole hotel has this beautiful cinnamon scent and it is tastefully decorated. A very welcoming environment that is highly complimented by the friendly and very helpful staff. The rooms are spacious with wood floors, medium sized bathrooms and nice views of the old city. Their breakfast service is good and their dinner menu is one of the best in town. Our stay here was amazing and I can't wait to return.
Most charming hotel
I had planned a huge suprise for my girlfriend on the weekend of January 17th. I took her to this wonderful charming hotel to propose. Thanks to all the wonderful staff who coordinated my weekend, our stay couldn't have turned out more perfect. We have now planned to make the Auberge du Vieux-Port a yearly visit. EXCELLENT!!!!!
A very nice old Inn in the nicest section of Montreal. The service is attentive and friendly and the staff are more than willing to help with any arrangements such as dinner reservations or city tours.
This little inn is perfect for a weekend getaway. Friendly service, great food (breakfast and dinner) and cozy room.
A very unique hotel well located right on the water in old Montreal. Convenient to the metro and other parts of the city.
The rooms are very comfortable with a decor much different than the typical chain or tourist hotel.
The staff is very attentive and friendly.
Breakfast is pretty good (included with the room) with lots of choices, although the quality of some of the cooked items could be a bit better.
Only disadvantage is that our room (overlooking the water) was a little noisy from the hardwood floors above us and morning train and delivery trucks outside the window.
Overall a great experience that we highly recommend.
What a great experience
This was one of the best places we have stayed and we can't say enough about the service. I can't wait to go back!
