As a native Parisian living in New York, I can ensure you that my trip to Montreal was undeniably one of my biggest city crushes! After 18 months away from home I felt so close to this city but not only because most of the natives speak French but because of the richness of it’s habitants, as well as the art, history, culinary scene, festivals, culture and nightlife. The hospitality of its inhabitants really makes the difference and you feel so comfortable there that the stress of your daily life just melts away upon your arrival.
Montreal is the biggest town in the province of Quebec, Canada. It is located on an Island of the Saint-Laurent’s River which has been named after the Mount Royal, the iconic hill with the three peaks overlooking the city. The « arrondissements » of the city used to be indepedent cities that are now characterized into different neighborhoods, such as: the French Old-Montreal, Notre-Dame’s Basilica, and the bohemian Plateau-Mont-Royal.
Discover the wonderful city of Montreal while staying at the AC Hotel Montreal Centre-Ville, a lifestyle brand from Mariott that reflects a modern decor with a European flair. Perfectly located in the dynamic and vibrant heart of downtown Montreal, the hotel is located only few minutes away from some of the major cultural monuments such as: Montreal’s Convention Center, The Quartier des Spectacles, Old-Montreal and more but also in close proximity to some of the best culinary restaurants, boutiques, hidden speakeasies and other exciting scenes to discover.
