Delta Montreal questions...

Thank you in advance, I am a first time visitor. Is the Delta Montreal within walking distance of things to do (such as shops, museums, restaurants and how far is it from the airport? Hoping that a cab will do, or perhaps the hotel has airport transers. Thx again.

Assuming you are referring to the Delta on President Kennedy, it is about a 5 minute walk to the downtown core. Ste Catherine street, Sherbrooke street, the "underground city" are all within walking distance. Since, however, it is in the downtown core, you should not have a hard time finding a bus or shuttle. It is right near the orange line metro stop - MCGILL -- which can get you access to all of the sights Montreal has to offer.

The Delta is ok but there are plenty of others in the downtown core. Here is the 1-800-268-1133 or go on their site: www.deltahotels.com Ask them about arrangements to the airport. Remember that you can claim your tax back from the hotel. You can ask in advance for a form either from the hotel or pick one up at the airport! Other hotels:there is also Cantlie Suites Hotel-www.hotelcantlie.com 1-800-567-1110 which is on Sherbrooke St. which is one of the nicest streets. There is also B&B montreal; Chateau & Hotel Versailles-www.versailleshotels.com If there is no traffic you are about a good 30 minutes from the airport to downtown. Any of these places are right by shops, museums and restaurants.

Just behind the hotel (depending on which way you are facing)is Ben's, a one of the classic Montreal delis, and well worth a visit if you want to experience Montreal in the 50s.

Walking the other way (north) gets you to Sherbrooke Street, and heading east from here on foot takes you to St. Laurent Blvd. North on St. L takes you to interesting stores, many restaurants, and lots more to do and see. And you get to Swartz's Deli, which is another Montreal eating experience; very casual, very crowded, very good.

Walking the other way on Sherbrooke takes you, in perhaps ten-fifteen minutes, to Holt Renfrew, where you can spend a fortune on good clothes, and to the main Montreal museum.

I've stayed at the Delta several times. The outdoor pool is badly placed, and is mostly in the shade in the afternoon. Other than that, it is a fine hotel.

Just make sure what Delta you are at. There is another Delta on University St. that is in a less intersting area.

Thanks, it is indeed the Kennedy one. The Delta Montreal. The other one I believe is the Delta Centre.
