The best hotels in Montreal, Canada
Often considered as a link between the Old and the New World, Montreal is the second-largest city in Canada and the ninth-largest city in North America. However, its European-style architecture allows it to retain a kind of small-town, old-world feel which makes it popular both with those who live there and with tourists. Recently named a UNESCO City of Design, it is an important centre for culture and design, as well as commerce, finance, and technology. It was furthermore named leading host city for international events in North America in 2009. With such a resume, it is clear that tourists who wish to visit the city will have no problem whatsoever in finding a hotel that is suitable for their needs. Why a hotel? Well, if you are looking for a more comfortable accommodation, one with extras such as room service, or you are booking for a large group of people, then a hotel makes more sense than a guesthouse or other such establishments. All you need to do, therefore, is choose your destination on our search bar, and browse the hundreds of hotels we have chosen especially for you. Still undecided? Read other guests' reviews to help you make up your mind.
Statistics show that one of the factors people take into consideration the most in choosing where to go on holiday and when is the country's weather. This is particularly important when you are thinking of visiting a country which is subject to extreme temperatures. Montreal, in fact, features very cold and sometimes long winters with wind, snow, and ice (late October to March, sometimes April). Spring (April and May) can be pleasant as well as cold, while fall (September to late October) tends to be more stable weather-wise, as well as wonderful from the scenic point of view. Summers (June to early September) are generally warm but humid. As for events, Montreal is one of the locations of the Formula 1 Grand Prix, held in June. Dates are flexible, however, and need to be checked year by year. Also in June is the Montreal Beer Fest where beer lovers can meet with the brewers and attend conferences and workshops as well as tasting new brews. Also towards the end of June is the Montreal Jazz Festival, while the period going from February to April features a particular event: Butterflies Go Free. Held at the Botanical Garden, the event turns one of the largest greenhouses into a butterfly aviary, where butterflies can fly around freely to reproduce, while visitors are allowed to walk among them in an atmosphere that is truly magical.
Montreal is often referred to as "Canada's Culture capital" and the title is well deserved. The city is in fact a great venue for festivals but even for concerts and theater events, as there are three orchestras that call Montreal home as well as an opera and a ballet company. However, it is not only events Montreal is well-known for. The city features four Roman Catholic churches: the St. Patrick's Basilica, the Mary Queen of the World Cathedral, the St. Joseph's Oratory, which is the largest church in Canada, and the Notre-Dame Basilica, a grand and very atmospheric church located in the beautiful neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal). In Old Montreal is also located the Pointe-à-Callière Museum of Archaeology and History where you can see the findings of archaeological excavations in the area and the Chateau Ramezay, an old house which shows you how people lived there in the past. Apart from the museums, however, the neighborhood of Old Montreal is well worth a visit to enjoy the atmosphere. Worth your time is also the Botanical Garden, located in a different area of the city. Both the greenhouses and the grounds are divided in thematic areas where you can admire many botanical species from different environment (particularly noteworthy are the Chinese and Japanese gardens, as well as the orchid house).
