Traveling to Montreal next weekend (april) and considering staying at either Le St Sulptice hotel in Old Montreal (dog friendly) or an apartment at Amherst/St Catherine. Would like to walk the city with dog and be near restaurants/cafes/shops. Need a park/green space for dog nearby also. Hoping April is even decent walking weather up there. First time to Montreal so would appreciate any ideas/suggestions. :)

Hi, I am going to Montreal soon and staying at Holiday Inn Midtown. Does anyone know what is the best way to get there from the airport?? This is my first time to visit Canada. Sooooo excited!!

Need to book 4 nights in Montreal for later this month. So many mixed reviews for the hotels I'm looking at that I'm wondering if I wouldn't be better off renting a private apartment or studio. Same price, and they look a lot nicer.
Whenever I'm in a new city the first thing I like to do is take a comprehensive guided tour by bus. I find it's the best way to get a lay of the land and it serves as a good starting point for further exploration.
Any recommendations in Montreal?
Just got a quote from the shuttle company that goes from YUL to Mont Tremblant. Round trip for 2 adults and a child they want374. That's a car payment! Yikes!

Hello, I'll be in Toronto for biz on the third week of Feb 2013. I'm thinking about driving up to Montreal. I have never been to this part of the country before, not to mention in the middle of the winter. I was wondering what the drive on 401 north would be like at this time of the year, and how much time should I give myself. I know I should avoid driving at night. Do they maintain the highway well? Are there many gas stations or places to stop along the way? Also, if someone could tell me where I should stay (I can afford100 a night), and what site or thing to do that I should not miss. I'm planning to stay 2 or 3 days there. Thank you in advance.
Hi! I'm traveling for a 1 week business trip (in offices) at the end of this month. What is normal office attire in Montreal? What type of coat should I purchase? Please note that I am from San Juan, PR, so anything below 70 is cold for me!!
Hi VTers, I'm planning to go to Montreal next summer on exchange program but on a tight budget. How could one get a budget accommodation for approx 4 months? Ihave checked the Concordia University student accommodation rates but they are way over the top. Probably because of the meals included but I plan to cook my own meals as such don't intend to spended that much on housing. Could find short term single room rent for500 or below? With basic furnishing as I don't intend to shop for furniture. Cheers!
My family will be travelling to Montreal the first week of December.We have been given a couple of ideas but would like more. We will be staying downtown Montreal. Thanks in advance.

Hi all, My boyfriend and I are planning on traveling to Montreal in late August. We are newbies to the area and my boyfriend prefers to do stuff that's more off the beaten path, while I prefer to see the sights. Any suggestions on what to do? I realize that we are both going to do some compromising. We plan on being there maybe three or four days tops.
I'll be in Montreal from August 3rd to the 10th, ostensibly to spend 3 days at an XML computer conference. I'm bringing the wife and 3-year old, and was wondering if anyone could give advice of what they could do during a few weekdays while I'm learning stuff. Also, we always like to meet up for dinner with VTer's when we travel...
We are only in Montreal for 24hrs, and we are staying at the Marriott Hotel Champlain. We want to try an eatery near our hotel that will leave us with good memories and not so empty pockets--the food doesn't have to be 5 star since we are more into ambience and uniqueness of the eatery over price/quality etc. Anything remarkable we can try within a 1/2km distance or so? For example, in Italy we went to a 'happening' little spot for apperitivo and it was so wildly designed inside and the finger foods were awesome and we got well fed for under 15euros each. Anything like that?
Is the Just for Laughs Museum closed? The English Wikipedia page on this museum does not mention it being closed but the French Wikipedia page says it was closed on November 3, 2010. Most of my guidebooks still include this museum.
Hello! Coming in to montreal for the day only will be flying back out at 6 pm. Have a room booked at the Delta in downtown montreal..are they close to old montreal and the casino? Will I be able to see the clock tower as well? How much time does it take to get back to the airport from there, please let me know! Also looking to find out where in old montreal I should go and not to miss Thanks Guys!!!
If our flight gets in to the airport around 1245am, is there public transport still running at that time to take us to the Marriott Champlain downtown? We are trying to decide whether to crash in the airport for a few hours until the cheapest public transport starts up in the morning (the Cheap Option), or take other means (i.e. taxi @40 flat rate or shuttle if it's running at that time) direct to the hotel to check in early (upon availability) at 3am or so and pay around100 for the opportunity to check in at that time or we can store our bags there and go to an all-night restaurant nearby and come back to check in around 9am & then it's free). We are 2 older women (75 & 44) so we are balancing price with comfort....Ideas?
My French is okay and I always speak the language when I am in France. How about Montreal? Will the locals immediately peg me as a foreigner and helpfully switch to English or will they tolerate my attempts to speak French?
Hello there! I was just wondering how much money I should save up for my trip to Montreal? I plan on staying there for a month to improve on my French and to check out the city and a university or two. Thanks in advance!
