Montreal is a city in the province of Quebec and the second-largest in Canada. A captivating blend of urban and outdoor attractions. Stone-walled taverns, candlelit drinking dens, wild festivals and a cutting-edge arts scene that made Montreal a UNESCO City of Design.
Visitors of our Montreal hotels can stroll at the Parc du Mont-Royal perfect for cycling, jogging, horseback riding, and picnicking. Enjoy panoramic views from the Kondiaronk Lookout near Chalet du Mont Royal or from the Observatoire de l’Est, a favourite rendezvous for couples. A stop at the Fairmount Bagel, one of Montreal’s famed bagel places shouldn’t be missed before heading to Montreal’s famous landmark – the Notre-Dame Basilica. Built in 1829 that is home to a famous Casavant organ and the Gros Bourdon, said to be the biggest bell in North America.
A must for art lovers, the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Montreal or the Museum of Fine Arts has a collection of numerous millennia worth of paintings, sculpture, prints, furniture, photographs and decorative arts not far from our Montreal accommodations. Some notable historic attractions include Place d’Armes, an open square framed by some of the finest buildings of Old Montreal, and the Oratoire St-Joseph, the largest shrine ever built in honor of St. Joseph that was completed in 1960. Before heading to your hotels in Montreal, make sure to sample the Schwartz’s meat, considered the best smoked meat in Montreal, choose from duck, brisket, chicken or turkey, all piled high on a sourdough rye bread.
