We just returned from another great trip to Montreal (jazzfest)and stayed at the Residence Inn Westmount. It is in the residential neighborhood of Westmount, steps away from the Atwater metro and a block away from St. Catherine, Maisonneuve or Sherbrooke. It is walkable to Place des Arts where they have the Jazz Festival. The property was an old apartment building, so at first glance it doesn't look like a typical Residence Inn. The lobby is newly remodled and the breakfast room is quite big and nice. The front desk is very helpful. The rooms could use a little updating, but overall they were spacious, quiet and clean! We stayed on points and it was a bargain compared to how much the other properties wanted during prime jazz fest time. Take a walk to Atwater Market or Westmount Sqaure for a nice stroll. The Lachine Canal tour was also really interesting. There is so much more to Montreal than just the Old Town!! This is a great place for families visiting the city. Ask for the self parking option - it is only $9 per day.
