hotel near Montreal-Trudeaui, QC

How far from city? We get on a cruise ship the following day and wonder if we should stay in airport or go to city---it will be about midnight. How far is airport from cruise terminal?

You will have more hotels to choose from at the airport, mostly branches of chains for travellers. The cruise terminal sits in the industrial port.The neighbourhood is picturesque by day, not so much if you are strangers at night. Fewer hotels to choose from in the immediate vicinity. I'd favour a sleepover at the airport and taxi to the ship in the morning's daylight.
I should say that you can use Google Maps to see hotel choices at both locales.

There is no "cruise port " in Montreal.
There is the Iberville terminal, and there is a temporary Holland America Terminal, about 4 miles out in the East End slums.

I think there are storage facilities at the Iberville terminal (Grand Quay) for cruise passengers. If you can confirm this, it might make sense to stay overnight near the airport (especially since you are arriving so late) and take a taxi or bus to the terminal area in the morning. You could explore Old Montreal from there.

"Old" Montreal sits adjacent to the docks, or at least some of them. There are no specific boundaries, only approximates. The area is certainly walkable during the day. I repeat my suggestion of using Google Maps to orient yourselves.

We have a hotel in Old Montreal---are you suggesting we do not stay there but stay near airport for a reason? Is there a safety reason fir driving to Old Montreal?

I only thought the airport would be closer and less expensive. You are coming in late and won't get much benefit from a hotel stay in Old Montreal. I am not sure what your question about safety and driving to Old Montreal is. Are you thinking of renting a car? That would certainly add additional time and hassle.

Hi--here are my thoughts. We have most of a day to see Old Montreal, so thought it would be more convenient to get up in the morning, keep luggage at home, and walk around Old Montreal until 2:00 when we board ship. If that does not make sense for some reason, I can always change t airport---what do you think? No, we are not renting a car.

I read your post again about storing luggage at terminal.... does that make most sense?

I think either hotel location would work. Old Montreal would certainly be a more charming area to wake up in.

Since you have a day to explore your best option would be to stay in the city and leave your luggage at the hotel until you need to go to the cruise.
We have booked a hotel for an upcoming trip at the Holiday Inn Centreville - technically in Chinatown area but only a short hop from Old Montreal. / 10min walk to the quay.
