... there 15 years ago with one of our first Maritimes tours.
The base of our Canada by Train visit next year will be Old Montreal. Just outside Old Montreal, the Lachine Canal is an historic 19th century shipping waterway punched through the southern half of the island in the St. Lawrence River on which Montreal sits. Last year’s Canada by Train group did some walking along the canal and the St. Lawrence to the west. Our new route, ...

... in the world) in summer so Montreal in the winter is no joke for sure.
So I chose what I like best while traveling ( since road tripping is not an option right now ) and that is WWoofing . I have found a super nice farm in New Brunswick , The Flying Shoe farm , where I can go next week and hopefully learn a lot of new things and skills. There are also 5 other WWoofers so I will have some company . I'll keep you posted!
... provided us with views of the North East side of the city. The olympic stadium with its prominent tower and viewing platform which is sort of in the shape of a massive ski jump or slippery dip, were lit up in a vibrant blue hue. The olympic stadium was built for the 1976 Olympic games and is currently in need of some extensive repairs which according to Rish , is causing a lot of talk around town due to the cost associated with such repairs and the potential ongoing use of ...

I wondered over to another stage where I bumped into my click from the hostel. The festival was so big that the chances of finding them was very unlikely but I managed to luck out. We walked around the festival grounds listening to a soul should and swing/jazz improv band. While I had not heard of any of the acts ...

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.
