... walked to the top of Mont Royal (which Kate complained nearly killed her, but that was before she met Quebec City). Kate had her first and then second poutine, and we both tucked into some delicious blueberry pancakes at a delightful diner called Beauty's.
All in all I think we did well in Montréal. Highlights for me were the Jardin Botanique and the Biodome although both had very hot and humid areas that I did not care for so much. The only major tourist thing we did not ...
First leg was flight from Fredericton to Montreal - two airports that share one thing: they're terrible. For an international airport PET is like a ghost town. seems like there are more workers than travelers. Depressing. Battled the depression with a bottle of Torrentes from Argentina. Two more hours and hopefully we are off to Chicago. There's nothing like five hours in a lousy airport to make you wish you could drive everywhere.
... headed back up to the pool deck for cocktails & hors douves and to meet certain members of the crew. We were also entertained with a cabaret number from the entertainment contingent, it was great. Light rain began to fall, but we all maneuvered ourselves under the sails on the deck and had a very enjoyable introduction to ships life and crew. While we were doing this, the ship slipped its mooring and we departed Montreal for Quebec City with little fanfare up the ...
This morning was fine but grey, cloudy and cooler, but nothing stops the intrepid group from walking around the grounds of the Parliament buildings, statues and other monument to the key historic moments in Canadian history. Also some great views and photo opps from the rear of the complex across the lower part of Ottawa. Then we walked over the canal and locks to the market place where in too short a time we browsed some of the stall and had M/T at ...
... I have no affiliations with God, but wow. An hour later I'm looking down over Notre-Dame and the rest of the city from Mont Royal. The views are good and the exertion even better. I return to Notre-Dame after the hike as the organ player (40 year veteran) is practicing for a coming concert. Trading the gothic organ for something more lively I head to Place des Festivals to see whats on offer at the Jazz Festival tonight. Shaky Graves is a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de la Montagne Montreal
My wife and I recently spent a long weekend at the Hotel de la Montagne after a four year lapse. It was as wonderful as ever in all respects!!! So four for four is evidence of the continued tradition of excellence this hotel maintains-
I stayed at this hotel based upon reveiws from Tripadvisor. It was quite lovely and very European feeling. But, a few things needed some work. I am not one of those over-the-top, picky, snobby travelers who will give a Four Seasons a 1 star rating. What idiots! I am a normal business traveler so you guys can trust my reveiw!
I would go back for sure!!!
I travelled to Montreal for 3 nights (Oct.27,2004) I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who likes a classy, clean hotel. The rooms were huge and very nice.This hotel was located close to all the hot spots.(walking distance) There was no need to drive anywhere which in good considering that the parking was $25 a night! I had no complaints at all.
I booked in on a business trip on Saturday Oct. 2nd. The room was far better than I expected, very spacious, clean with everything I required to continue working if I needed too in the evening. The breakfast Buffet was excellant, the piano bar nice to relax in and Thursdays bar was always popular and the bar staff friendly and informative. I would definately recommend the hotel and shall stay there again in future trips.
We discovered the Montagne about 12 years ago and loved the "experience". It had a wonderful piano bar which travel guides always promoted: "Even if you don't stay at the Montagne, a visit to the piano bar is a must" (Fodors). The clientele was mixed in age, but all had great fun. And, most importantly, the staff was outstanding. Now, apparently, the owner is catering to a very young audience that is loud, poorly mannered, and low class. The piano bar has been replaced by a "caberet" which isn't great. Instead of a business clientele in the lovely diningroom at breakfast, you will see men in tank tops and flip flops. At our last stay, a crowd of young people filled the room next to ours at 2a.m. and partied for hours, even though we called the main desk and complained twice. What was once a favorite hotel of ours, cannot be recommended. So sad!
It was great
The rooms at Montagne were very nice, clean, certainly more than I had hoped for. Very spacious wth lots of amenities. Breakfast was included and you could order off a complete menu so you weren't limited to the standard continental breakfast of a croissant and juice. The staff was great, locations couldn't be beat. I would stay there again.
Hotel with personality
Hotel occupies a converted apartment building on Rue de la Montagne between Ste. Catherine and Maissoneuve right behind Ogilvy's, the upscale department store. Crescent Street with its bars and clubs is right around the corner. Rooms are large, with good beds and bathrooms.
Furnishings might be described as a little dated and tired but not tatty. Charming lobby with bar. V. gd restaurant on 2nd floor. Private entrance to hotel owned club Crescent Street. A bit pricey at full rate but sometimes offers v. good week-end deals which is what I watch for.
Have stayed 4 times over the past 7 years. European atmosphere. Never a problem - always enjoyable.
This is a hotel in the heart of Montreal. Being surrounded by Sainte Catherine and Cresent, you will find shopping, restaurants and bars.
Had a great weekend at the Hotel De la Montagne
Had a fabulous time at the Hotel de la Montagne. Great atmosphere! The daiquiri's at the pool bar were the best.
It is a great central location, close to the malls, metro and just a subway ride away from the Festival of Laughs.
We had a great time downstairs in Thursdays during our stay, the girls and guys working there were awesome, really friendly.
Can't wait to go back next year!

We spent 5 nights and had a blast! We had stayed at the Hotel Vogue (across the street) on our previous trip to Montreal and it is also very lovely but in a very different way. The Vogue is very quiet, classy, upscale, and a bit stiff while de la Montagne is MUCH less expensive, just as clean, more "fun", but the furniture's just a bit outdated.
