Marriott-brand suite hotels have me completely spoiled. Finally a hotel where I don't have to sit on the bed to relax. Free full breakfast with plenty of protein. Free wi-fi. Valet Parking (not free but certainly reasonable for 24 hour downtown parking). Clean and well maintained, newly refurbished rooms, excellent customer service. The Springhill Suites in Old Montreal were certainly no exception.
While the hotel is a bit difficult to find because it is down a narrow street (which itself is well marked) and has no sign protruding over the street, it is ever so centrally located in the Old Port. With the help of our GPS and a heads up about the narrow street, we had no trouble finding the hotel, even with all the construction and re-tasking of streets in the area.

The first day in Montreal was really only half a day. My flight from Edmonton allowed me half the afternoon to explore part of Montreal Vieux (Old Montreal). My hotel is almost centrally located in the neighborhood so it's easy to get around the area. After checking in, I made my way to Notre-Dame Basilica and Place d'Armes. From there I went east …
... looked like a typical French house similar to ones we have stayed in before in France. However on closer inspection the kitchen was to say the least decidedly grotty much to Lees disgust. It also had a strange basement that gave Bella and I the chills. It didn't seem to bother Freddie at all even with the spooky pictures of long dead inhabitants on the walls and the empty cot in the corner. Aaah!!! After a ...
... We decided to also try the smoked meat that every restaurant in the area also advertised and so we split a sandwich and an order of poutine. For those that do not know what poutine is, it is french fries, cheese curds and hot brown gravy. It was delicious. We tried it before years ago at an A&W (we were sure it was one of the gourmet poutine restaurants) and weren't impressed. This was so much better. The cheese curd was different than the stuff we ...
... you know what I am having tonight don't you!!!!). Then through to the bedroom with the biggest King Bed I have ever seen, a beautifully comfortable chaise lounge and another wardrobe. We had cake and compliments from the manager on a small table in the entry on arrival. I guess you can imagine that we were both speechless and also delighted by our good fortune....... We also have access to Club Continental which has breakfast, canapés & cocktails in the ...
... I was not sure what we did wrong. It turned out one of the girls was pouring beer into her cup behind the bar, so we all got kicked out. In true Canadian fashion, she apologised a hundred times and we went off to find another place to drink.
A few beers later we ended up back at the hostel at 4am. It was a crazy night - trying to speak French is fun when under the influence of Alcohol. It was an interesting way to celebrate my Birthday.
