    • Day trip from Montreal?

      by Crayter132 Online Now Aug 22, 2015 at 3:13 PM


      We are in Montreal for 7 nights, spending 3 days here. One day we will be going to QC, and one to Ottawa. I am wondering if there is anywhere anyone recommends visiting for a whole day trip within a few hours drive?

      Our French is fairly limited so remote areas may be difficult.

      Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

    • 24 Hour Bus Pass

      by MapleMoose Online Now May 7, 2015 at 8:09 AM

      I am trying to understand the STM website re the day pass or 24 hour pass (are they the same thing?). If I land at the airport and get a pass for $10 does that include my shuttle downtown plus the Metro for the day? Do I need to have an Opus card for this? I saw a reference to paying exact cash using coins only? Can anyone pull this together for me? Merci.

      Any wineries that also do food and accommodation?

      by Vince1974 Online Now Jan 25, 2015 at 2:49 PM

      We'll be staying in Montreal for 3 weeks in the summer and would like to visit a nice vineyard. It seems like most of them will serve you a few little taster glasses and try to sell you a few bottles of wine. Are there any that have more of a restaurant/hotel set up where you could actually stay the night?

      Anywhere within say a 2 or 3 hour driving distance from Montreal would be suitable to us.

      Booking a hotel room as a minor

      by jgoncalo Online Now Nov 10, 2014 at 8:30 AM


      I'm going to Montreal in December and I'll spend both Christmas and New Year there. Me and my girlfriend planned, with our parents consent, that we would spend the New Year out in the city and then we would sleep in a hotel that night, from December 31 to January 1.

      I'm Portuguese and she's French, but she's a Canadian permanent resident. I'll be 16 and she'll be 17 by that time.

      This are the hotels we were thinking about:

      - Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth

      - Sofitel Montreal Golden Mile

      - InterContinental Montreal

      - Hotel Le Crystal Montreal

      - W Montreal

      The question is, since we are both minors will we be able to book a room? Should her parents call the hotel before the reservation? I've seen people saying that our parents can book it and be there while we do the check-in and check-out and that we'll have no problems since they won't know that they won't be staying there with us.

      I'm from Porto, Portugal that means my parents won't be there, so her parents are responsible for me (I have a letter recognized by the notary stating that) will that be enough for her mother to write a permission to let us stay in the hotel if required?

      Area to Stay

      by riorich55 Online Now Jul 22, 2014 at 3:29 PM

      The plane tickets are bought, the itinerary is set, and the days off have been approved. Now onto the next stage of planning. 4 days in Montreal from Tuesday through Saturday in October. Now looking at places to stay. Requirements are easy enough to access from airport (any suggestions welcome), probably close enough to main train station, as we will leave Montreal by train headed into New York. Price range probably around the $125 to $160 per night range.

      Getting ready to start booking for October trip which will start in Montreal and end up at the VT meeting down in Washington D.C. First question for this trip for VTers is on Porter Airlines.

      They have some great deals from Chicago to Montreal via Toronto. Has anybody flown them? Looks like you pay a little extra for some things like bags and seat selection, but that's not unusual.

      Will this impact my ability to use the metro?
      Any suggestions about what to see first? I will probably stay downtown and want to go to Old Montreal and enjoy that part.
