Hotel in Montreal in February

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow Fodorites. My pregnant wife and I will be driving to Montreal and Quebec City from NYC for Winter Carnaval 10 days from now. I have a tentative plan, but I've been nervous about it and I'm hoping for some guidance.

Montreal 2 nts--Westin--we would prefer to stay somewhere with more charm, but thought it would be preferable to be in a hotel with a direct entrance to the RESO. Of those that are, this one seems best. I've never been to Montreal before, can you tell me if I'm overestimating the importance of this feature?

Quebec City 3 nts--Fairmont--while I'm told that Montreal has more to do, it will be the weekend of Winter Carnival so we thought that staying here a bit longer would be a good idea. Would love some feedback.

Montreal 1 nt--Westin again, same question. The reason for splitting the time like this is that from NY it's 6 hours to Montreal and another 3 to QC. We want to avoid a 9 hour drive either way.

Another question, if you please, we have a Ford Fusion sedan and thought we would drive that to Montreal and rent a 4wd to go to QC with. Any thoughts on whether this makes sense or whether it would be necessary to rent the 4wd for the entire trip or not at all?

Leaving soon so any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks much.
