My girlfriend and I took an off-season weekend trip to Montreal in January. Needless to say, we knew what we were getting ourselves into with the temperature in single digits. I chose the W Hotel based on it's solid reputation and also because they were offering some pretty good deals being, again, that it's January. The Hotel is nicely located near Old Montreal, a five minute walk from Notre Dame, and a short cab ride from just about every other neighborhood. Working in the food industry, our Montreal itinerary consisted mostly around restaurants, eating, and drinking. I had only 1 or 2 places I knew I wanted to visit in advance. 1. The amazing restaurant, Au Pied Du Cochon, and 2, Dieu Du Ciel! Brewpub. With only two solid stops I knew I needed back up. We approached the concierge and asked for advice. My girlfriend are both in our mid-20's. At first glance the Concierge told us all about the club scene, outdoor parties, etc..However, once he found out we were serious about the food scene ( a la reservation at Au Pied Du Cochon I made a month in advance) he pulled out all of the stops. Right away he gave us a LIST of local brewpubs and microbrasseries along with his beer recommendations (all of which were spot on). Followed by a LIST of amazing 'foodie' restaurants. As far as the Hotel itself, exactly what you would expect from the W. Clean, hip, trendy, comfortable. Montreal, in my book, one of the most underrated foodie cities, and that's coming from a resident of the NYC suburbs..
