... it worked!) So...those extremities were sorted...but as I had a pair of shoes and socks not designed for the cold....my tootsies were very uncomfortable....Warm thick socks were required and shoes that would offer some protection. If any of you have been to the snow or skiing you may know what I mean...in some ways this was unexpected but I should have known better. Anyway....enough whinging. We went back down the side of the mountain and walked through parts of the ...
So, in theory, getting at plane at 6:45 am on a Sunday morning sounds like a good plan, and a great way to save a couple of dollars. In practice, however, it's a good way to lose your mind.

... pro jeans. Some people dislike them on such trips because they're bulky and take a while to dry. But I love them. I basically live in mine; they go for ages without needing a wash, and they are far more versatile and stylish than those horrible zip-off specialty travel pants that scream 'tourist'. Jeans work well for day or evening, city or wilderness, dress up or dress down. I never leave home without them. I limit myself to one ...
... rent bikes from Ca Roule Montreal On Wheels. We briefly considered using the hop on off Bixi bikes but thank god for Chris and his love of reading the fine print which showed that the rates were actually higher than what the advertised if you didn’t swap bikes every 30 minutes to get a new one and you weren’t guaranteed there would be a place to drop your bike off near where you wanted to stop thus incurring huge additional fees and day rates.
... Jet Lag! [We had a wonderful time at Chez Maurice, each day Maurice prepared us a different breakfast and filled us to bursting-point. In the afternoons we watched a televised golf tournament with him and his adored cats. It was with deep sadness that we heard in early December 2012 that Maurice had died from complications following surgery.]

Historical Traveler Reviews W Montreal
This hotel is definitely the place to be for the trendy, young, and well-to-do crowd. The atmosphere is awesome, the staff are all super-friendly and super-helpful. It also helps that they're mostly the same age and the guests in the hotel.
I invited my girlfriend for her birthday and we stayed at the W Montreal for one night. The room was nice and spacious. About the bathroom, nice design, actually there is a glass wall who separate the shower and the bedroom, so you can see in the room easily. We appreciated our room and the hotel. If you want to have a wonderful night try the W.
W hotels consistently have service issues, and this one is no exception, from the rude bell staff that pointed at the concierge when I asked for the nearest ATM to the ridiculous overbilling that I am still trying to resolve, W just does not know how to treat its customers. The rooms are interesting but not up to the level of other Montreal boutique hotels like the Gault or Germain. There is no wall between the bedroom and the bathroom, just a bright blue curtain that provides no privacy. The beds, as always, are fantastic. But great linens do not make a hotel. To the inevitable wannabe-hipster criticism that always follows a negative review, about how it's creative and I should just go wrap myself in a floral bedspread at my local Holiday Inn, you're missing the point. Modern design and good service can go hand-in-hand, evidenced by the hotels I mentioned above and a number of other Ws, Sofitels, and Park Hyatts. W Montreal misses the mark in a big way. In Montreal, stay at a boutique hotel or try the Sofitel on Sherbrooke.
We just returned from three days at the W. My husband, two sons and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was beautiful and the view was great. It was a large room but not very private in respect to bathroom facilities. ( I am the only girl in the family and it would have been nice to close the bathroom door!) As it is the only divider between the main bathroom area and the living area was a curtain. I love nice linens and I have to say that these were very comfortable.
W montreal - not worth the price
Stayed at w last saturday night. was not impressed with level of service. yes its very trendy and high tech (staff wears head sets and most look under 25 yrs old) - but you want to relax not feel like your in a club. restaurant otto was hyper expensive while food was mediocre.
rooms are nice yet have a cold feel. Wouldnt stay there again.
I lived in Montreal for 6 years - and the thing I have missed most about the city since I left is the down-to-earth, beautiful people who are interested in meeting people and just having a good time.
One of the Best Hotels in Montreal
I just went to the W this past new years the weather happened to be quite nice for that time of year. This W's lobby surpased any other that I have seen of course it is trendy and hip and not always to everyones liking but it was wonderful. The staff is estute of the area and pays much attention to you while the concierge is very nice and helpful too. The room is gorgeous but very open(not quite a family hotel room) the only thing that seperates the room from the bathroom is a seethrough blue curtain even if closed u can see through a hole on the left wall when u walk in to your hotel room. The view is amazing it is of the buisness district and accross the street from the metro Square-Victoria. All in all it was a great stay.
We just spent the Holiday weekend at the new W Montreal and had a wonderful time. We spent last Christmas at the St. James (truly outstanding!), but thought we would try the W this year since it is new and we're always up for something different. We have stayed at many W properties around the world and are generally underwhelmed by the service. The W Montreal, on the other hand was exceptional. Everyone was extremely friendly and accomodating, from the valet to the front desk and management. We spent the weekend in an "urban suite," which I guess is the equivalent of a junior suite. The room was huge and on a corner with large windows all around. It was remarkably warm for a W room and the bathroom was great with a huge soaking tub, large separate rain shower (with blue tinted glass "voyeur" wall looking into the bedroom), double vessel sinks, separate toilet and Waterworks towels.
Excellent service, sometimes exagerated, room was big, nice impecable king bed, beautiful white and soft sheets, bathrooms were also big (like another room) and well designed with aveda products. TV,DVD,VCR,CD player all in perfect condition, room service also excellent. The Hotel just opened so the Spa wasn't working and the Gym wasn't totally ready (understandable but they should say that on their web site). Staff was very helpful, sometimes it seemed that they were trying too hard to be too nice. The lobby and the bars were very modern (over the top), no Restaurant was working at the time, but they had a good continental breakfast instead. In general the experience at the "W" was very good, the staff should just relax a little be more. About the price... remember it is a "W"!!
What can I say... BEAUTIFUL!!! BREATH TAKING!!
My room was PERFECT, every detail was attended too. The bed was heaven!!! The decor very BOUTIQUE!!! WOW, WOW!!!!
