Downtown Travel Guide

Hotels in Downtown

Opened in 2002, Sofitel Montreal’s floor-to-ceiling windows, wood panels, and fresh flowers give warmth to a space that was built as an office building.

Restaurants in Downtown

In 2004, when chef Normand Laprise moved his acclaimed restaurant from its neighborhood haunt up in the Plateau to this airy space downtown, he might have been sending a message with his choice of décor: red carpet all the way.

Things to do in Downtown

From the same owners as Whiskey Café, Dominion Square Tavern serves a French-Canadian menu and house-made items by chef Érik Dupuis. The original chandelier and terrazzo floors have seen the space used as everything from a 1927 hotel restaurant to one of the city’s first gay bars.
