Stopped by here in late March and it was pretty bleak. Looks lovely in spring/summer photos though! Would wait until then to go.

While I'm sure this is an excellent asset for residents of Montréal, I'm not sure I would recommend going out of your way to visit. We rented a couple Bixi bikes and it was all interesting but the views and experience were not anything special.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
