Located in the heart of “Canada’s Cultural Capital,” near Mount Royal Park, McGill University, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, there are several quality establishments for dining, shopping, and entertainment. Hotel Sofitel offers French cuisine with an international appeal at Restaurant Renoir, as well as cocktails in the cosmopolitan lounge atmosphere of Le bar.

All guests must carry a valid passport. Passports must be valid for at least six months after your return date of travel.

Give one copy to someone you trust – a friend, family member, or assistant – in case you need to contact them while on your trip. Keep the other copy with you. If it’s printed, put it in your carry-on (not your checked luggage – that could go missing). If it’s an electronic copy, make sure you have access to it when you leave the U.S. (on your mobile device, or in your e-mail, for example).
