Where I stayed
Walked all over the city to the 'Crescent St' area, Latin Quarter, Old Port, and St Laurent St. My favorite was the St. Laurent Street, which was a trendy/fun area. I also enjoyed a terrace or two in the Latin Quarter. The best part about Montreal, as far as I'm concerned are the terraces in the restaurant/bars and the botanical gardens. The gardens were amazing. I especially like the lily section and the magnolia trees.
We also went to the Biosphere. Do not go here unless you are unusually interested in Buckminster Fuller (bucky balls guy) or ecology. Some interesting things, but overall a disappointment.
Other things to note about Montreal - although it is a French Speaking city, the restaurants do not serve dinner late. make sure you find a place to eat by 9pm. Shops close at 5pm, even on Saturday.
