      Booking a hotel room as a minor

      Montreal 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?
