    Welcome to hell !!! stay away !!!


    Worse hotel I have ever stayed at, had to leave after 1 night, old sheets on bed, not a complete set, pillows old and flat, dirty looking towels, no face clothes, 1 hand and 1 bath towel only. No glasses or cups in room. Defitinely not a 3 star hotel. This Hotel is more of a university dorm, they advertise apartments for rent. Paid for 3 nights only stayed 1 night, no personel on duty when we arrived, room left open. Manager was of no help. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE.

    Unique Quality: The only outstanding point is , how in 2013 the owner manage this place like hell. The stuff are rude, and helpless. They even dont know any basic knowledge about customer service and customer satisfaction.\

How do I get there (hampstead to airport )

by afraidofdrivers


I work at the airport and would like to ride my bike to work, does anyone know how I would get from Decarie and Jean Talon to the airport in Dorval.

Re: How do I get there (hampstead to airport )

I take a similar route. It's not pretty, but it's functional. I assume you want to get to the airport terminal itself. That's longer and uglier, but if you just need to get to Base Road, it's not quite so bad.
Anyway, here's the scoop. Turn in to the Walmart and follow the road through the back to Blue Bonnets, then zip out the right side onto Devonshire. Follow Devonshire until it ends, then cross the track at the pedestrian crossing just after Kraft Foods. This gets you essentially onto the 40W service road. Follow it until the Cote de Liesse interchange, then cross over to your left as if to follow Cote de Liesee, and not HWY 40. You have to be very careful here, and it's best to wait for a red light so the traffic slows a bit.
After you cross under the 40, bear right to get on the Cote de Liesse service road. It's pretty safe there, except for a few trucks and buses. You can just continue on the service road (yuck) all the way to the airport.
However, if you're heading for the Base Road, it's much better to turn right just after Cavendish and zigzag through Ville St Laurent to Cote Vertu. In fact, if you're going there, I'd avoid Cote de Liesse altogether, and take Alexis Nihon to Cote Vertu.

Travel Tips for Montreal

Visit Vieux Montreal (old...

by Lilymaid

Visit Vieux Montreal (old Montreal) and see the Montreal Museum of Archeology and History on Place Royale. This is a fascinating place!!! You can learn about the whole history of the city. Very interactive, great exhibits. Give yourself at least 3 hours. This is a pic of me in Vieux Montreal... which looks like I imagine Europe does. Walking around Montreal in the downtown area on a Friday night... it was party central every evening. The weather was lovely, the people were nice and totally out of a good time. There are lots of things to do and see... great for the crowd aged 16-35 years. Tons of restaurants, bookstores, bars, clubs, etc. Right along the Rue St. Catherine and that area. There are about four colleges in a very small area so if you go, expect to have a great time with a few hundred people!

Truly Canadian

by VTShounen

I fell in love with Montréal the first time I went. But it really struck me on my third trip. Was there with friends in the summer, in the old port area, and the sights and sounds of the raw and spontaneous urban life really made an impression on me. The seemlessly fluid switching between languages, the sipping coffee outside at cafés with no hints of pretention, the beautiful buildings, the great weather.. everything just conspired me to have one of those 'moments'. That really cinched it - I love this place!

Hudson Bay Company Store (1891)

by yooperprof

This red sandstone "monument to capitalism" was opened in 1891 in Phililps Square as Morgan's Department Store, then the largest retailer in Montreal. (It became a HBC emporium in 1959.) The architect/designer was John Pearce Hill, who recycled some of the stones that had been part of Canada's first Parliament buildings, which were located in Montreal in the 1840s.

It's a prominent landmark on Rue Ste. Catherine Ouest (west) - at 585.

Interesting trivia: the family of CSA (Confederate States of America) President Jefferson Davis lived on this site during the period of the American Civil War in the early 1860s - Davis had sent his wife and children here to Quebec for safety.

It's all about respect

by phillemieux

I've worked in the tourist biz in old montréal for the last six years and I can assure you that you will have little difficulty getting around most parts of montréal, with very little or no knowleadge of french.

Nobody here expects american or european tourists to speak french. This being said, a minimal attempt is always appreciated. Most people, after hearing your honest but clumsly attempt to speak the language will save you further embarrasement by politely switching to english. (This can be quite a problem for people who actually want to learn french :)

This being said, if you encounter someone whose knowledge of english is minimal or non existant DO NOT get upset and start complaining. This is considered quite disrespectful and will get you angry glares from others who may have offered help.
