My 7 year old and I recently traveled to Montreal and also brought our dog. We stayed within walking distance of Laurier Park and loved it. Playground, pool (we didn't try it, but it looked inviting), dog park (bring your own water bowl), small fountain, Wifi, plenty of restaurants nearby for picnic dinner, and lots of green space. A great... More

I am torn about this hotel as the location just outside the walls of Quebec city is great, and the staff could not have been more helpful. They also have an arrangement with some merchants to offer a substantial discount to people staying in the hotel, and this is really helpful. The room was only OK, the lighting was really... More

Many fantastic restaurants and very classy street. It is not for the beer pocket it is expensive and the looks are plentiful. Some of the most fashionable women shop this street. It is amazing for shoes and great looks. I go there often to find things. There are wonderful places to have a coffee and croissant and it is a... More

One of the main streets leading up to and perpendicular to Mont Royal Avenue. Lots of activity here even though MRA was pretty dead when we finally got there... There was a lot of street art - a big citywide exhibition, as opposed to graffiti - on corners and in carparks around Laurier, Sant Denis and Rivard, if memory serves.

We got off at the Laurier metro stop, walked towards Parc Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and could see what all the hype was about. A couple of decent coffee shops but not expresso heaven. Maybe the other direction was better but there was no indication.

Laurier St is an emblematic street in Outremont. Lined with cafés and great shopping. Don't miss having a café on the nice terrace of Toi, moi, café. I also recommend the following restaurants for a great typical dinner in Outremont: Chez Levesque ( typical bistro cuisine and decor), Lemeac ( very nice terrace, great cuisine)

There are a few cafes and uninteresting shops. Complete waste of time. This is not a "Rodeo Drive" in Montreal.

Loved the uniqueness of the shops and restaurants. L'Emouleur, the cutlery store was a cut above the rest. (Sorry, I couldn't help that one). Juliette et Chocolat for when you need a rest. Fabulous window shopping!

We just love to walk on Laurier. Nice boutiques, great restaurants and variety groceries. Make sure to shop at Gourmet Laurier for Fine products and eat pastries and cappuccino at La Gascogne

One can't visit Montreal without picking up a travel guide that recommends this tony shopping district on the outskirts of the Plateau neighborhood. Don't waste your time. Parking was impossible. Public lots have as many as a dozen spaces. Not only is the parking expensive but once on the street you really can't buy anything for under $1,000.00 US. Typical... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
