Parking near UQAM/Quartier des Spectacles and U-turn?  (1 Answer)

We are driving up to Montreal from Boston and will be staying near St-Denis and Rene Levesque intersection. Plan to park the car for the couple of days and walk/metro it. Any opinions on the parking under the Great Library? Can cars be left untouched for two days without having to feed the meter and such? Any alternative parking ideas?

Also, are U-turns allowed in Montreal and under what conditions? Thanks in advance!

Central digs, or otherwise ?  (2 Answers)

Hello ! Two of us will be in Montreal later on this year. It has been many years since I was last there, and my partner has NEVER been there. I am having great difficulty with 'deciding' WHERE we should pitch a tent: Downtown (Central) or vieux Montreal or Quartier Latin or The Plateau. I understand that with Metro (we will not be driving) we will be able to access all areas in reasonable time. We are budget travelers; but prefer something 'above' a bed in a dorm (inexpensive hotels / B&B's are fine) I am well aware that there are many options in the St. Laurent / East of 'The Main' neighbourhoods- but I read conflicting reviews on various travel sites. Is it worth it to opt for Central accomodation- and then rely on Metro for access to neighbourhoods where there are fantastic options in respect to dining, clubs, shopping, arts & culture, etc...? Whatever help / tips / advice any of You are able to provide will be much appreciated. Thank You.

A few recommended towns and B&Bs in Eastern Townships, Please

Wow!! Thanks for the info. I have spent many hours looking at all the wonderful places in the Eastern Townships to visit, but would like some advice on specifics. Two youngish senior couples that like food trying to decide between Magog, Brome, Sutton, and other towns for 2-3 days in July. One commenter said Magog is quite crowded in the summer. We are from NY and Cape Cod so that may not be an issue. So, any one town to be our base???.. Looking for a nice B&B, say between $100-150 (US) per nite with a good breakfast, that is near good restaurants and interesting sites. We have a car so that makes getting around OK.

We are in Montreal for 7 nights, spending 3 days here. One day we will be going to QC, and one to Ottawa. I am wondering if there is anywhere anyone recommends visiting for a whole day trip within a few hours drive?

24 Hour Bus Pass  (7 Answers)

I am trying to understand the STM website re the day pass or 24 hour pass (are they the same thing?). If I land at the airport and get a pass for $10 does that include my shuttle downtown plus the Metro for the day? Do I need to have an Opus card for this? I saw a reference to paying exact cash using coins only? Can anyone pull this together for me? Merci.

Any wineries that also do food and accommodation?  (4 Answers)

We'll be staying in Montreal for 3 weeks in the summer and would like to visit a nice vineyard. It seems like most of them will serve you a few little taster glasses and try to sell you a few bottles of wine. Are there any that have more of a restaurant/hotel set up where you could actually stay the night?

Anywhere within say a 2 or 3 hour driving distance from Montreal would be suitable to us.

Booking a hotel room as a minor  (17 Answers)


I'm going to Montreal in December and I'll spend both Christmas and New Year there. Me and my girlfriend planned, with our parents consent, that we would spend the New Year out in the city and then we would sleep in a hotel that night, from December 31 to January 1.

I'm Portuguese and she's French, but she's a Canadian permanent resident. I'll be 16 and she'll be 17 by that time.

This are the hotels we were thinking about:

- Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth

- Sofitel Montreal Golden Mile

- InterContinental Montreal

- Hotel Le Crystal Montreal

- W Montreal

The question is, since we are both minors will we be able to book a room? Should her parents call the hotel before the reservation? I've seen people saying that our parents can book it and be there while we do the check-in and check-out and that we'll have no problems since they won't know that they won't be staying there with us.

I'm from Porto, Portugal that means my parents won't be there, so her parents are responsible for me (I have a letter recognized by the notary stating that) will that be enough for her mother to write a permission to let us stay in the hotel if required?

Area to Stay  (4 Answers)

The plane tickets are bought, the itinerary is set, and the days off have been approved. Now onto the next stage of planning. 4 days in Montreal from Tuesday through Saturday in October. Now looking at places to stay. Requirements are easy enough to access from airport (any suggestions welcome), probably close enough to main train station, as we will leave Montreal by train headed into New York. Price range probably around the $125 to $160 per night range.
