My wife and I are coming to Montreal for 4 nights in the spring-time (Apr 26-30) enroute to New York for 6 nights. Very excited as neither of us have been to either city before.
We've already gleaned alot of info from TA and I see that there are experts in this forum that seem to know as much about New York as they do about Montreal!
So here is our plan: We'd like to stay in Old Montreal and are thinking about either the Hotel du Fort or maybe the Ritz-Carlton Montreal? We'd like to stay in a place that has a historic charming type feeling. In New York we're looking at the Belvedere? Upper West Side about 5 blocks south of Central Park. We'd like to try and keep the nightly rate around the $225 CDN range...
Also wondering if a quick day trip to Ottawa would be worth the time or if three solid days in Montreal would keep us occupied and amused?
