Old Montreal – Vieux Port Montréal Trips

Posted on 11 February 2010 by admin

Montreal, and especially, Old Montreal (The Old Port) has long had the image of a romantic city with couples making special romantic getaways and even honeymoons there. The rich history and culture of the city make it seem a world apart for many tourists and visitors from central Canada and the US.  Cobblestone roads, quaint souvenir shops, trendy lounges, boutiques, French bistros, luxurious hotels, port side patios and much more make Old Montreal an excellent destination for a little taste of Old Europe in North America. From bed and breakfasts, hostels, boutique hotels and luxurious suites, visitors can find accommodations to suit their needs quite easily. Whether it is just for a weekend or even for the whole week, Old Montreal is definitely a city to experience.

Founded in 1642 by European settlers, Old Montreal today is one of the most memorable tourist destinations in North America. It has succeeded in maintaining its European influence and flavour. Old fashioned street lamps and floral arrangements, sidewalk cafes, horsedrawn carriage tours, art galleries, cobblestone streets and buildings maintaining their original facades lend to an “old world” and festive atmosphere.

Some attractions include Place Jacques Cartier, lined with sidewalk cafes and terraces where visitors can enjoy a drink while listening to romantic music and enjoying some crowd pleasing street performances. History buffs and architecture aficionados will enjoy a visit to d’Archéologie et d’Histoire de Montréal. At the port, know as le Vieux Port, dockside areas and parks offer scenic paths for roller-blading, cycling, walking and much more (along with the many ice cream stands)! Boat tours and jet boating are offered at the harbour for those wanting to get closer to the water.

Notre-Dame Basilica is a grand cathedral that was once the largest church in North America. It is a fine example of the old French architecture and environment of the 17th century.

Lounges like Le Quartier and Suite 701 offer trendy places for get-togethers with friends and a small break from the old world charm to a more modern setting.

To make your visit to Old Montreal even more pleasant and different from vacations to other cities in North America, be sure to book your stay in a boutique hotel. They offer old world charm, amazing service and beautiful accommodations. Chic hotels with a European flair, boutique hotels really allow you to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Whether in the summer or winter, if you are planning for a getaway but can’t make it to Paris, make sure to take a drive to Old Montreal, where European flavour is at every corner.

Hotel XIX Siecle Old Montreal Boutique Hotel

Posted on 09 February 2010 by admin

L’Hôtel XIXe siècle is full of old world charm and located in the heart of Old Montreal. You’ll find all the modern amenities of Montreal hotels within a beautifully renovated “French Second Empire” building.

The Old Montreal boutique hotel has elegant, spacious rooms with high ceilings and large windows. Each room is unique and has been furnished with panache in Louis-Philippe style. Amongst Montreal hotels, the XIXe Siècle distinguishes itself thanks to its unparalleled commitment to service.

The architecture of the building is pure Second Empire, inspired by the French Renaissance. Inside, the restoration of many original architectural elements, such as the ceiling  friezes in the Entrance Hall and the staircase leading to what was once the vault and is now the library, help to preserve the spirit of the 19th century all the while maintaining a modern Montreal hotel commitment to quality.

All just a stone’s throw away from the Palais des Congres Convention Center, downtown Montreal  shopping on Ste-Catherine street and the business district.

In Old Montreal you’ll be able to admire one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival style, the Notre-Dame Basilica built in 1829, as well as countless museums, monuments, art galleries, cafés, shops, and more.

L’Hôtel XIX siècle is proud to be a part of that glorious Victorian past. Built in 1870 and designed by Michel Laurent, our building was originally the head office of the Montreal City and District Savings Bank. In 1945 the bank began renting office space and attracted many law firms, including that of Jean Drapeau – who would go on to become Montreal’s most beloved and controversial mayor for three decades, building the Metro system and Place des Arts and bringing the 1967 World Exposition and 1976 Olympic Games to Montreal.

After 3 and a half years of renovations, l’Hôtel XIXe siècle opened its doors in May 2001.
