We visited the museum and really enjoyed the exhibit. Saw art from someone from Camden, New Jersey. What are the odds of something like that happening. Really great hotel to navigate and see everything without being crowded!

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
