In Montreal, my hotel of choice is Le Meridien Versailles, located on Rue Sherbrooke, just a few blocks from Rue Sainte-Catherine, one of the main commercial streets in the city. The hotel has easily become my home away from home with the credit belonging to the staff, from those who work at the front desk, to housekeeping, to the valet, Robert. The hotel’s location is ideal as it’s a few short blocks from one of the 747 Bus’ predetermined stops, although please note, the walk from that stop is uphill. As you travel southeast from the hotel’s entrance, you will find yourself in a charming residential area, perfect for an early morning stroll; northeast along Sherbrooke, you will discover a number of cafes, retail stores, the Musée des Beaux-Arts and McGill University. And, one of Guy Concordia’s metro station’s two entrances is right around the corner from Le Meridien on Rue Saint Mathieu.
