    Thanks BBBrenda - it's helpful to know which areas to stay away from! What downtown hotels would you recommend we check out?

    Pricey but one of the best is the Fairmount, Sheridan , hotel de la montange(S) I forget the one Tigger was at but it was on peel street very nice and not expensive. There are more I can look it up if you want to wait a day or so tell me the dates and I can get some prices for you. All Motels are out of the city so dont bother looking at them or anything near the airport is too far for comfort.30 min to get downtown.

    Hotel de la Montagne, Montreal. My first & only choice. We stayed for Christmas one year & it was fabulous. The location meets all my requirements. I walk everywhere except for Port/Old Montreal & the Red Light district. Both those I just get a cab outside the hotel.

    The Sheraton hotel is really good. The first one was mentioned by BBB and Kitty. The other, I believe is further down, but only by a couple of blocks. Both are very close to a couple of metro stations.

    I don't go to any of the restaurants in Old Montreal, but there are some awesome artists up and down St Paul street at the Old Port.

    As for vegan/vegetarian restaurants, there is two cafes that I know of, but they're both in the neighbourhood of Notre Dame de Grace (N.D.G. for short). They're only blocks away from the Villa Maria metro. It's a bit pricey though.

    The first one is called Cafe Juicy Lotus and is 5568 Monkland ave. and the second one is Harvard Gourmet and is 5688 Monkland (the first one is owned by a young woman and the second is owned by her mother). I have their phone numbers if you want me to zmail it to you. Monkland ave. is also a trendy street, so if you are looking for cafes and restuarants and bakeries outside of downtown/Old Montreal, you can go there as well. And like I said, alot of these stores are very near the metro, and is not a long ride from downtown.

    Thanks for your input. With Old Montreal I thought you might not have a recommendation for the area. I do agree that the artist are worth the visit.

    I'm sorry I don't have many recommendations for Old Montreal. I mainly go to kosher restaurants. But there is no shortage of restaurants and cafes, and you could ask the desk attendants for advice.

    Also, if you like Indian food, or are willing to give it a shot, at the very least, there is Buffet Maharaja. It's on Rene Levesque, I believe, in downtown. I love Indian food, which is why I recommend it, and it does have a wide variety of vegetarian food, as most people in India do eat vegetarian meals.

    No problem Student. I really did not think you would come up with one. I have eaten in many of them & find them to be expensive but it is about the ambiance not the food.

    Dh loves Indian. I have added that to the list. Thank you!

    I can't remember who said not to go to the Red Light district. We do but by cab in the evening. Not only do we find it very entertaining & talk about it for years. There are some very good restaurants there. Beside the great restaurants many ethnic, they have stores & China town is very close. Also you will see many policeman in the businesses plus on the streets.

    I said not to go to the red light district at night, there are enough places to visit other then the seedy area of town. If you want to go , go in the day time and yes China town is just a few blocks south and I did reccomend it. The restaurants are not that great in the red light district but Chinatown is very
    good.

    They have been cleaning the area up but I still say avoid it at night. There is a vegitarian place at the corner of McGill and St Catherine street and its very popular, your conceirge at the hotel will tell you what restaurants to go to.

    As I posted we have only gone at night by cab with a destination. One area of Montreal follows quickly into another. China town, St-Laurent street hosts much of the famous nightlife, entertainment/restaurants are very close to the Red Light district (St-Laurent and Ste-Catherine street). Yes it is still seedy today but much better then it was in the 70's.

    I am fortunate that my Dh's family moved from Ontario to Montreal for business. So Dh grew up in this town. When Dh & I married I started accompanying him on business trips. I have seen all of the City of Montreal in the last 39yrs. The trendy, Crescent Street, Ogilvy (department store), the Gay Village & yes the Red Light district.

    Montreal has a huge selection of restaurants and eateries. Be it French, Italian, Greek, Chinese, German, Lebanese or Jewish cuisine, you will find an authentic restaurant in this city to suit your taste.

    I have traveled to many areas of the World but some of my best stories I have to tell, happened in Montreal.

    Place des arts holds the entertainment venues now, there isnt anything on the main as it was in the 70s/80s most are closed, A few strip joints are still there but the rest have closed. St Laurent north of Sherbrooke is where its trendy now Tons of Restaurants of all kinds and the action starts after 10 at night here.Here it has taken over from Crescent street a young hip crowd.
    Duluth street or Prince Arthur is great for food and most are bring your own wine.St Denis is good as well, more French speaking at that end of town but everyone speaks Engish For St Denis get off at the Sherbooke street Metro and walk up towards Mont Royal. This metro is good for Duluth, prince arthur and st laurent as well.Its a 30 min walk from downtown not power walking but uphill a bit so wear confortable shoes. Nice boutiques as well

    Place des Arts is very nice but offers nothing more then I can see in Toronto. Now the Montreal Symphony Orchestra is on my list.

    Quartier des Spectacles shows great possibility when it is finished.

    Night life here does not start till 10pm same as in Montreal. That gives us lots of time for dinner first.

    We think we've narrowed it down to 2 hotel choices - both meet the criteria of being close to a metro stop, and close to bakery & coffee. They are the Marriott Chateau Champlain and the Le Place d'Armes. I love the idea of not staying in a chain, but the Marriott has a phenomenal-looking bakery nearby, and access to the underground shopping area. Any thoughts?

    Oh, maybe 3 choices -- adding in the Auberge du Vieux Port to the mix. icon_smile.gif
