I imagine this place is totally different in the summer but I love the cold & the snow and this area was fun to walk around, stopping in and out of shops and cafes. Didn't take full advantage of all the things on offer, but...More

First fun trip to Montreal in 30+ years and absolutely wonderful city. Everyone we met spoke English and was very helpful. Highly recommended

Some really nice views to be had here, as well as a good people watching spot. The free wifi is also particularly useful! It was super windy when I went (I almost lost my bag!) so make sure you are better prepared than me haha.

Collectively with my visit to Old Montreal, the Old Port area provided a nice place to relax and stroll by the river with the old city in view. There was plenty of places to walk about with a few decent places to take some photos....More

This is a great active port for cruiselines, fishing and touring boats and an active park and trail. It is vibrant and alive.

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
