    Montreal and Quebec City Hotels

    So I'm planning a little vacation for next month as a graduation gift for my fiance. We're going to drive up to Montreal for 3-4 days then make the trip up to visit Quebec City for another 2-3 days. I'm wondering if any of you have had good/bad experiences at any hotels in either city. We're looking for hip/fun hotels not really business type hotels or flea traps. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated. Also if you have any tips on bars, restaurants, things to see/do.

    Thanks,
    Botz

    On a serious note, you'll love Montreal, one of the best cities I ever visited. Wished I could remember the name of the hotel I stayed at. Just remembered it had circular windows and a great view of the city.

    When I visited Quebec City, I stayed in a hotel right near the mall with the skating rink. Don't remember the name of the hotel, but it was nice and wasn't too expensive.

    I don't know about the hotels but just be careful about where you park your car. I won't name any names, but I hear cars somehow get lost.

    Re: Montreal and Quebec City Hotels

    Been to both cities - Montreal twice and Quebec City once. The better of the two hotels I stayed at in Montreal was the Marriott Chateau Champlain. It may be a somewhat generic Marriott in terms of rooms and layout but it was clean, the service was good and beds were comfortable. When I visited Quebec City I stayed at what was supposedly the nicest place there, La Chateau Frontenac. Simply put: overrated. Save yourself a couple of hundred bucks per night and go somewhere else. There are several brand-name hotels nearby, all of which cost much less than the Frontenac.

    By the way, when in Quebec City I highly recommend drinking the many outstanding beers the city has to offer. Good stuff!

    Re: Montreal and Quebec City Hotels

    I love both cities. I have no hotel to recommend, I've just gone with the best rate out there. That said, the Queen Elizabeth in Montreal is good if there is a discount rate. Agree that the Frontenac is over-priced, but I had to see it. Too many bus people....I hate bus people (apologies to those Yankee fans who do bus tours).

    Quebec is a walking city--like Paris, but filled with NICE French-speaking people. Spend one day meandering UP through the city towards the battlefield/park on top of the mountain, then take the cliffside boardwalk DOWN back to the center city. Another day, ride the funicular down to the lower city--great restaurants down there.

    In Montreal, I recommend the Botanical Garden--one of the nicest I have seen anywhere. You can tack on the view from the Olympic Tower, the Bioshere, (both worth doing) and a peek at the worst venue to host a baseball team EVER. (It's at the base of the tower and comes free with the other stuff). Check out St. Cathereine at night--but don't try to park there. I ran up a few hundred in parking tickets--now I can't go back in that car. Of course, you have to do the old city and the waterside--consider boat trip. If you ride bikes, rent some down by the boat docks and ride along the river and the canal (go with wind along river and against coming back on the more sheltered canal--spectacular! Very bike-friendly city--get the special bike map the city puts out.

    Next time, add a few days, and go further down the river--stay at a B&B in La Malbaie (Auberge sur La Cte is great), ride bikes on Isle aux Coudres, see the whales at Tadoussac (spectacular) and check out the artist colony at Baie St. Paul. Gamble at the Chateau Richilieu if that's your thing. Just bring your French--although you can survive without it. I love this area (the Charlevoix).

    See if there are any promotions or specials at the Chateau Frontenac. I stayed there about ten years ago, truly nothing quite like it.
