Weekend getaway for a couple from Montreal in winter

I want to take my gf on a w-e trip to take her mind off things. We don't drive, or skii, or have passports so I was thinking a really nice hotel with a spa and casino accessible by shuttle? If anybody has some other ideas or knows the ins and outs of the aforementioned trip I'd be grateful. Thank you.

If you dont drive or ski or have passports your best bet would be to search out a great hotel in Montreal and surround yourself in luxury and fine dining for the weekend.

Maybe one of these

The fact that the Fairmont appears on that list is disconcerting. On that basis alone I would not trust that list.

Not in the same league as the ritz or the st James. The Fairmont is in serious need of renovations. The service is ok. The best thing about it is its location. It is like the royal York. It lives on its past glory.

MatthewR - why don't you take the train to Quebec City, and book into a small hotel in the old town there? You may not get the spa, but the city itself is lovely and romantic.
