We got there at dusk and spent the evening. It was a great night and beautiful when everything is lit up.

October is not the month to visit Old Port as nothing is open. It’s a nice walk and I think the there would be much to do when it reopens in the spring through September.

We enjoyed walking around the old port at night. It was beautiful to walk by the water and look at the lights and old church towers in the old town area. The observation wheel is also very pretty, especially reflected in the water. We also...More

Pleasant walk to the Old Port from the Hotel Gault. Wonderful views of the river and the City. Great seating along the river. Worth the walk.

Thoroughly enjoyed our short visit. We crammed in as many sights and experiences that whaling would allow. The contrast of old and new next to each other is fascinating and works. The choice of eating venues is extensive covering many cultures. Would definitely go back...More

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

I went with my 5 years old. He did the small ones for children and both the 13 feet tall. It was very fun. He couldn't go on the higher ones but i'm sure a teenager can.

Garage parking is best, although metered on-street parking is also an option. Meter maids are very thorough and will be sure to ticket any lapsed meters, however, so a garage may be best. Most hotels offer garaged valet... More
