The train station itself is quite nice, spacious interior, easy to navigate & find your track. However, when I walked from my hotel to the train station, there were no signs guiding you to the place. I walked by it and had to turn back.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and

restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
