We are planning a trip to Montreal this June for my birthday. Where are good places to stay, and go to eat?  We've never been there. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Hotel Universal is supposed to be really nice and afordable.. I suggest making the trip to old quebec, it is so nice there. As for food, i am not sure, a friend of mine goes to a rib place everytime they are there... says it is the best barbeque ribs they have ever had...

If you love sushi go to the Sushi St-Denis. You pay like 20$ and it's all you can eat and the menu is big! Go to the Ste-Catherine street, it's a big street with alot of stores and restaurent.
Lots of thing to do at Montreal : Planétarium, Biodome, La Ronde, Le Vieux port, Le Centre Bell , Le Stade Olympique, etc :)

Definitely check out the Old Port (Le Vieux Port) it has beautiful architecture and is a really nice area.

Happy Birthday! Enjoy this beautiful city!

The downtown core has a number of hotels you can stay in, however if you're looking for a more economic option, Auberge Royale Versailles is decent and you'll have easy access to the subway system which will take you pretty much anywhere you want to go (the hotel is right across the street from the station).

If you're into museums, there are a number of them in the downtown area. If you need to choose just one because of time constraints, go to the Fine Arts Museum. There's a free admission area as well as featured special exhibits which you pay for. You get to see artwork by impressive artists like Da Vinci, Monet, Picasso, etc... for free, so well worth the trip! McGill University also has a free museum called Redpath and at the same time, you can enjoy a walk throughout the iconic campus. The McGill metro/subway station will also lead you to the underground city which has shopping malls, as well as a wax museum called Grévin, much like Lady Tussauds in New York/LA. You do have to pay for admission.

Like the ladies mentioned above, the Old Port/Old Montreal and the Downtown core are a must to visit. Lots of places to eat and shop there. Chinatown is in between these two areas and should not be missed either! You can easily walk from one to the other or hop on the metro again if you get tired.

Top spots to eat: If you really want to treat yourself and don't mind splurging on a fine dining experience, Le Bremner in Old Montreal is a renowned spot mainly because it's owned by chef Chuck Hughes (Food Network celebrity). However, if you're looking for authentic Montreal eateries, check out Shwartz's Deli (smoked meat sandwiches), La Banquise (poutine), St-Viateur Bagels, just to name a few.

The Botanical Gardens, Insectarium and Biodome are also great to visit. All three are connected so you can get a complete pass or just choose the one you like.

Another iconic spot is the Jean Talon Market (farmer's market), also easily accessible by metro/subway.

I hope you enjoy your trip! Have fun!!
