This is one of the places in Montreal where you can just take a sit and enjoy the good weather, looking at the mixed architectures - there's a feeling of harmony between the very new and the very old that is rarely found elsewhere. Also, here you can take a horse-driven coach for a tour of the city.

Excellent organization, very good food, excellent service (Ricardo made us feel special), good music (although jazz is not our "first love") so even if far away from home we enjoyed the evening and stepped in the new year hopeful and cheerful.

The large square ha the Basilica Notre-Dame at one end and is surrounded by some of Montreal's oldest historic buildings. There is the Seminary, Bank of Montreal head office, New York Life Building to name a few of the old buildings around the square. There are some interesting statues in the square - the most significant being that of Maisonneuve.... More

I walked past this square many times during my 6 days in Montreal and enjoyed the commentary on its historic significance on the tours I undertook whilst in the city. The Place d'Armes is literally where Montreal was founded. The highlight for me however was on my last morning in Montreal prior to boarding the Maasdam for a 7 night... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this luxurious hotel. Perfect Old Town location. Nearly across from Basilica Notre Dame and carriage rides. Had it's own restaurant..good food and service. Interesting small chandeliers inside bird cages above bar.

WE LOVED THIS HOTEL. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Montreal. Beautiful rooms - BATHROOMS ARE NOT TO BE BELIEVED. I cannot say this enough. I wanted to spend my whole vacation in the beautiful, well-appointed bathroom. The staff was exceptionally friendly, spoke both English and French, and chatted with us whenever we passed the desk....

Very trendy, and well located. Directly in the Old Montréal in walking distance of the Cathedrale. And for whom who are going for a congress at the Palais des Congrès, not even two minutes walking distance. Upon my arrival in my room, I had not even finished unpacking that the manager called me and ask if I wanted to be... More
