HELP! visiting montreal and need advice
I suggest you use www.priceline.com to get a hotel, as you can get a hotel for a much reduced rate; you don't choose the hotel, just the star level. Go for a 4 star hotel; they are all in the downtown area. Start your bids at $80. Read the rules as to when you can bid again (higher) in case your bid gets rejected. As long as you are not planning to be in Montreal during Grand Prix weekend, you should get a room at a reasonable rate.
