Your city centre hotel is just next door to the famous Mount Royal park mountain. Officially inaugurated in 1876, the mountain is a favourite with lovers. Its wooded trails and the untamed wilderness of its landscapes whisk you away from the bright city lights. In winter, the frozen waters of Beaver Lake are perfect for a spot of ice-skating. The nearby pavilion offers hot chocolates and a chance to catch your breath. Walking back up Mount Royal Avenue, you'll soon find yourself in the hip Plateau district. Its many bars and restaurants ensure a fantastic night out on the town with friends. Not too far away is Mile End, Montreal's ultimate trendy neighbourhood. Come and tuck into a delicious plate of fish and chips, or sample Saint Viateur Avenue's famous bagels.
With its plethora of cultural events, Montreal is one of North America's top cities. And its vibrant city centre is living proof. A stone's throw from your hotel, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Place des Arts are two of the Montreal art scene's must-see sites. If shopping is your thing, head to the Eaton Centre or the Les Ailes complex. Heading down the iconic Saint Lawrence Boulevard (known as 'The Main', locally) takes you to Montreal's historic centre. On the shores of the Saint Lawrence River, the Old Port is home to a number of history museums. The Notre Dame basilica on Place d'Armes is renowned for its sound and light displays.
