Not within walking distance of main tourist attractions
Area lacking in restaurants and nightlife
The 198-room Hotel Ruby Foo's lies about 10 minutes outside of Montreal's downtown area, next to a major highway. The hotel's modern, Asian-inspired decor emphasizes rich, dark colors, giving the rooms a sophisticated (if not luxurious) feel. What the hotel lacks in location, it helps compensate for with with amenities: a day spa; restaurants; salon; and large 24-hour gym.
About 10 miles outside of Montreal's downtown, in Cote-des Neiges
Ruby Foo's is located right next to a major highway, within walking distance of public transit stations and several restaurants (though the area isn't exceptionally pedestrian-friendly).
Cotes-des-Neiges is a multicultural, mostly residential neighborhood that's home to both students and immigrants, and located 10 miles outside of Downtown Montreal. Although it has a few tourist attractions, like St. Joseph’s Oratory, Universite de Montreal, and the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre, this area only offers a taste of what the rest of Montreal has to offer. The main attractions downtown are a 15- to 20-minute drive away.
