Montreal Hotels

We are planning a long weekend(Friday through Monday) and were thinking about the Chateau Royal Hotel Suites on Crescent Street. Any suggestions? We are looking for something a little upscale near restaurants and nightlife. Also, I haven't been able to find too much info on the casinos is Montreal and would like to know how far downtown Montreal is from the Casino de Montreal. Any information would be appreciated! Thanks!

My husband and I go to Montreal for a weekend every summer and we have always stayed at the Chateau Royal Suites on Crescent. I wouldn't say that it is upscale but it is nice and in a good location. Lots of nightlife on Crescent and walking distance to shopping, Mont Royal, the Old City, the University area.

I can't help you re the Casino but if you are looking for an upscale restuarant that is out of this world, make a reservation at Toque on St. Denis (a bit of a hike from the hotel but worth it) - if you search the term Toque you'll find lots of other endorsements for it on this forum.

The casino is very close to downtown Montreal but not walking distance. It's situated on Ile Notre Dame across from Old Mtl.It's wise to cab it as parking is difficult, especially on weekends & holidays.

We've stayed at Chateau Royal as well and would agree that it cannot be described as "upscale", but the value for the rate is excellent. Rooms are nice enough, though very plain (with kitchens), and there's no lobby to speak of, or restaurant(s) within. You can always wander across the street to Hotel de la Montagne for dining (two fabulous choices, a fancy romantic restaurant, with moderate prices, and an "upscale" bistro which is positively gorgeous - and dining on the balcony there in the nice weather is magnificent, especially Sunday Brunch - resevations recommended), cocktails (disco or VERY comfortable cocktail lounge with live mellow music). There is dining and nightlife up and down Crescent. Of course, you could STAY at Hotel de la Montagne, where for a few dollars more, your room key will get you to the front of the line, in the nice weather, to the rooftop nightclub, where you can dance under the stars to live music with glorious panoramic views of the city all round. You can get to the casino (which is on an island in the river) via metro and bus, but it's easier to just take a taxi (prices are reasonable).
