Discover Montreal

Montreal is a beautiful city located in the province of Quebec, Canada. Known for its rich history, stunning architecture, and lively culture, it's no wonder that millions of visitors flock to this city every year. If you're planning a trip to Montreal, there are plenty of things to see and do that will make your visit unforgettable.


One of the best ways to discover Montreal is by taking a stroll through its charming neighborhoods. The Plateau-Mont-Royal is a trendy district filled with colorful houses, quaint cafes, and vintage shops. This area is home to Mount Royal Park, a beautiful green space that offers spectacular views of the city. Another must-see neighborhood is Old Montreal, where you can explore the cobblestone streets, historic buildings, and stunning Notre-Dame Basilica.


Montreal is also a city of festivals, with events taking place throughout the year. The Montreal Jazz Festival is one of the largest jazz festivals in the world, featuring over 500 concerts in 10 days. The Just For Laughs Festival is another popular event, featuring top comedians from around the world. And during the winter months, the Montreal en Lumière festival transforms the city into a winter wonderland with light displays, ice sculptures, and outdoor activities.


Of course, no visit to Montreal would be complete without trying some of its delicious cuisine. Poutine, a dish made of french fries, cheese curds, and gravy, is a Quebec specialty and can be found at many restaurants throughout the city. Montreal-style bagels are also a must-try, with their distinctive sweet and chewy texture.

Hôtel St-Denis

This is our favourite place to stay in Montreal.  Just steps from St Catherine Street and our FAV place to eat is next door ... although there are MANY fine restaurants that we have enjoyed ... all within walking distance!


Hotel St-Denis, then known as Hotel Pensylvania, opened on July 3rd, 1929. The opening was celebrated with a grand evening buffet during which the mayor at the time, M. Houde, sang " À la claire fontaine" . The owner, then M. Irwin N. Rollman,  gave his guests an automatic golf shot calculator. The hotel was well-received in the lively francophone neighbourhood for its modern installations and numerous (100!) rooms.

The vaulted basement of he hotel was once a famed bar by the name La cave des moines. It hosted several wild nights as well as union meetings in the 1970s.

BEST Italian Food we have ever tasted ... same owner's for 40 years ... Eduardo still eats there and he was the most charming man when we recently met him! And did I mention you can bring your own wine with NO corkage fees!!
