"Meetings in Montreal"
Score 5.0 / 5
Montreal is the French speaking cultural center of Canada with some 250 theater and dance companies, more than 90 festivals and fascinating neighborhoods. Compact and pedestrian friendly, the city is easily navigable by foot or by public transit (bus and metro), both offering safe and clean ways to explore. You’ll see that above ground or below, at any time of day or night, getting around the city is secure and simple. It features some of the most exciting food scenes in North America with fine dining as well as wonderful cafés to relax in the afternoon. Summer marks peak season and hotel rates increase along with the temperature. Numerous events like the Formula One Grand Prix make booking a hotel room far in advance necessary. Another great time to visit Montreal is March May. Temperatures start to climb and hotels show higher availability and lower rates. Located downtown and linked to 4,000 hotel rooms by the city’s underground pedestrian network, the Palais des congrès de Montréal (Convention centre) features 551,520 sq. ft. of exhibition surface area, making this a perfect meeting space, regardless of climate.
