Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
Arrived in Montreal on a rainy day so went for an indoor activity. The museum was beautifully organized, easy to navigate, and diverse in beautiful presentations. The Calder exhibit had just opened and we found it to fascinating both from artistic and educational perspectives.
This was right next door to my hotel, so after admiring the exterior for a few days, I decided to take a moment to check out the interior. I’m so glad I did! The inside is ornate and stunning, but not overdone or gaudy. It was not crowded with tourists either, so it was even more breathtaking and serene.
Clean station and fast metro service to get one all over the city. Just a couple of stations did not have a life for baggage assistance but all in all a nice way to train el about. A three day pass is a great value.
Being in Montreal was a dream come true for me. As a life-long Canadiens fan, I've always wanted to actually see the building my Habs play in. Luckily my hotel was just a couple blocks away, and I could walk around to my hearts' content. There were no games during my stay there, but I was happy with just walking...
This is one of the oldest, if not the oldest Ritz Carlton’s hotels, but with its recent makeover, it a real treasure. Hotel is located in “Golden Mile” area of the city, close to many shops and restaurants and about 15 or so minutes to the Old City. It’s also only two blocks from the Musée des beaux-arts Montreal, which...
The hotel is in a great central location. I could easily walk to my meetings. The staff is helpful and friendly and go out of their way to meet any requests. I plan to stay there on any future trips to Montreal.

Manfred, the concierge on duty when we arrived, gave real 5-star plus service and a very warm welcome to us. From the moment he found us trying to park and check in to the entire first day, he made everything easy. After our hectic travel day starting at 4:30 AM, it was a real relief to have his help..
Location is downtown - near metro station (McGill) and very near the Rue St. Catherine, which is full of shops.
We had a very spacious 1 bedroom suite (king bedroom, sleep sofa in living room, queen bed in alcove off living room; full size kitchen with eat in area and supplies for up to 6 people). Spacious bathroom, thick towels....
Check-in and Check-out in a minute. The bathroom set was complete. I reserved two rooms and the rooms were near each other. Just the breakfast needs to be improved because it's very basic and underneath to the general Hotel value.
