It's sad how many times I've been to montreal (my grandparents live there) and yet I dont really have much to recommend hehe. If ure not a veggetarian & u like montreal smoked meat (or uve never tried it) then you definitely have to visit a resaurant called Schwartz which is incredibly famous for their sandwiches (i wouldnt recommend going at a popular time though b/c the line ups can be horrendous!) I remember one time I went in the mid of january and it was literally about 40 below and I had to wait in a line up to get in....not fun let me tell you. That's another thing. when do you plan on going? cuz it can get bloody cold! Oh, & since you're driving I would be slightly weary of the drivers in montreal hehe they so some of the most random things, generally w/o signalling & it can be pretty interesting. other than that, you should have an awesome time, there's some pretty good night-life there so you shouldn't have a shortage of a good time

btw, glad to hear of another torontionian!

I have been to Montreal a bunch of times. I like to stay at the Novotel....its on Crescent Street, one block down from St. Catherines (the main drag) and very close to the Molson Centre (the big hockey arena). I am not sure what you wanted to spend......its kind of a mid-range hotel - pretty nice facilities for the price. Also, it is right on Crescent, which has a ton of bars, restaurants, etc right there. My favorite Irish Pub up there, Hurley's, is one street over, you can cut through a parking lot to get to it. Plus, the hotel is close to the Metro. You could also stay down near old Montreal, which feels much more European, with cobblestone streets, sidewalk cafes, etc. I don't have a good name of a hotel down there, though. I usually just take the Metro down from the Novotel. Old Montreal is a great place to check out, though. Hope this helps.
