... it seems as if it is either wait for long periods of time or race full speed to get from one to the other--there's no middle ground, why is that? The airport here does provide 30 minutes of free wi-fi so Becky and Pete go on with their iPads and I with my MacAir and we checked e-mail, FB, etc.
We were on the plane late and left a little after 11 (almost 30 minutes late). The flight is about 7 hours long so we will be in these seats for some ...
... d'Orleans, a visit to an amazing copper craft workshop among a few other stops. The 3 hour train trip is a treat in itself and an extremely good service, ViaRail Canada, gets top marks for everything. Back in Montreal, on the 9th floor,we finished our exploration of Old Montreal and Mont Royal and visited one of the beautiful modern art galleries which has many old masters and we spent several hours taking it all in.

... however, not embarrass myself by trying to speak too much French with Sam (a dorm buddy from Paris) on the day trip we did. Highlights from this beautiful city? The Parc Mont Royal is a mountain set in the middle of Montreal which offers incredible views of the city - very much reminding me of the vistas from Barcelona's Montujic. The old city has some incredibly beautiful architecture and combined with people, this place is more traditionally French ...

After walking through the market about 10 minutes, I decided to buy a bottle of pure maple syrup which is very plentiful in eastern Canada. I certainly got my walking exercise.
After returning to the ship, I found Peggy in the library sipping a chocolate mocha latte and looking at a catalog of Holland America cruises. She ...
... In many ways, Montreal retains an appealing sort of old-world flavor, and one of the most obvious ways is in its bustling local markets. The biggest of these is called Jean-Talon, nestled in the residential Little Italy neighborhood. Marché Jean-Talon occupies an entire city block in a covered area ringed with restaurants and shops, and is open year-round, a mix of farmer's market, florist, and artisanal bazaar. It's extraordinary: ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Omni Mont-Royal Montreal
A very large nice room and a welcome change from the bland and tasteless rooms of most hotels. Decent but pricey breakfast, we were lucky after a moan about one or two issues with housekeeping to get vouchers for two freebies. Roadside rooms rather noisy.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Omni Mont-Royal Montreal
The best in Montreal
I stay at the Omni every time I travel to Montreal and it feels like coming home. I am a Omni preferred guest so my keys are always wainting at the front desk. Service is top notch, a great health club with workout clothes provides and those great views of Mont Royal. I will never stay anywhere else.
Omini Mont Royal Just Right
I chose the Omni Mont Royal based on writeups from this site and was in agreement with the majority of the very positive opinions. It was a great find and met all our needs and more. We had 2 adjoining rooms for 3 teenagers and myself. Rooms were a very nice size and well decorated. The staff was truly excellent. The conceriege desk pointed us to a restaurant in Old Montreal named Mondavie that served absolutely great food in a neat atmosphere. Also key for us was the hotel's location, just off the shopping district. For our 2 night stay, I don't think we could have done any better than the Omni Mont Royal.
Great weekend getaway
We spent a three night weekend at the Omni Mont-Royal in March. The staff was always extremely gracious. The concierge staff was very helpful in directing us to sites and restaurants (Toque was tremendous if you are willing to pay for it) of all price ranges. The health club is great to get refreshed for the evening. We were given a large corner king room on the 4th floor at no upgrade charge. No complaints, no regrets......
Can't beat the Omni
We stayed over the weekend of 3/8 for under $85/night through Expedia and believe it one of the best hotel values ever. The service, rooms, and excellent health club, not to mention the location made our visit to Montreal. For comparison purposes, I priced the Sofitel right across the street at $150/night. The staff was also very accomodating in providing room with on the 28th floor with a great view of the city.
Here Is the Scoop
Omni used to be a Westin and before that it was a magnificant Four Seasons Hotel. So, the building itself is very functional and the location is amazing. Request a room facing Sherbrooke Street if possible. Often they can upgrade you from a Deluxe to a Premium room, which only give you more closest space and a bigger sofa, but worth it on long stays. Just ask - you never know! The Presidential suites are amazing, if you can work the dough! Many hollywood and music stars have stayed in those rooms. Outdoor pool also available in the winter months as it is heated to 90F. But you are crazy to use it if you ask me. Enjoy! I'll answer any other questions if you need!
Great hotel great location
We stayed at Hotel Omni Mont Royal Dec. 26 - 28, 2002. We took the train from Toronto and we walked to the hotel using the underground shopping centres. It was very cold but it hardly affected us. We stayed on the 14th floor. The room has a king size bed and was beautifully decorated. The bathroom was very nice but needed ventilation. The bedding was so comfortable. The staff was polite and the check in and check out was efficient. We really enjoy the stay. We had a really good deal this time (two night for the price of one night). But we'll like to stay there again next time when we visit. In addition, the gym is so great. The hour is long and the staff was super nice. You can sign out a gym bag for workout in the room. That is really great. The hotel is only few minutes walk to underground shopping centres. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel.
Oui to the Omni
Just got back from a long wknd in Montreal (nov 1-4, 2002) and had a great stay at the Omni Mont Royal.
The hotel features an elegant, understated lobby with marble floors and elegant furniture.
My single room featured a king-size bed and the generic upscale hotel room look (i.e., taupe everywhere). The bed was very comfortable, the furniture was classy and comfortable.
Bathrooms were fairly roomy with Swiss Institute toiletries. They also featured white terry bathrobes.
The Omni has a good restaurant - Opus II - but is surrounded by great places to eat. It's on Rue Sherbrooke - Montreal's most elegant shopping and hotel row. And it's a block from the Peel metro station, and two blocks from lively St. Catharines street with its carnival midway mix of shops, shopping plazas, strip clubs, fastfood places, movie theaters and great people-watching.
OK Omni, Better at the Bonaventure
Nice hotel but not spectacular. Pool area was a bit dismal compared to the Bonaventure which is far and away a more interesting place to stay. The concierge was spectacular with great dining ideas and very charming.
A wonderful stay!!
We had a terrific stay at the Omni. We received a free room upgrade thru AAA and spent the weekend in a lovely junior suite. We spent much more time in our room than we have on other get-aways. We ate at the Zen Chinese Restaurant one night - great food and atmosphere. Had drinks at Opus II - our only surprise were the 9 dollar beers - even with the exchange that seemed expensive to us. Still Opus II was a great place to sit back and relax. Great decor and service. Nice to have valet parking - worth the 23 Candian dollars per night. Room was very clean which is very important to us. Great views of Mont Royal and of Montreal. Overall, probably one of the best hotel experiences that I can remember. We will definately be back again.
An excellent place to stay
This property was formerly the Four Seasons, an outstanding hotel chain. Often used by discerning businessmen, the hotel offers great weekend rates. The service in impeccable, from the friendly doorman, Pierre, to the front desk. As former Montreal residents, we love to return to this locale, in the heart of downtown, 2 blocks from McGill University, shopping, fine restaurants, the Museum etc. Easy access to the Expressway. The rooms are attractive and oversized. A great hotel!
