Downtown Montreal, a popular destination for business travelers and tourists alike, is the lifeblood of the city. With both the Saint Lawrence River and Monteregian Hills as backdrops, this area of Montreal offers stunning views, not to mention a fast-paced nightlife, some of the city's best museums, and tall skyscrapers. It's also the home to McGill University, founded in 1821 and referred to as "the Harvard of Canada."
Downtown Montreal has a wide selection when it comes to hotels. For party-seekers, Rue Crescent and the surrounding streets -- which have some of the city’s best nightlife -- would be the best bet. Budget travelers may want to look around the McGill University campus, while families may prefer to be close to attractions like the Montreal Planetarium on Saint-Jacques oust, or the Underground City (accessible by the green and orange metro lines).
