From a seat at the revolving Tour de Ville restaurant, you can enjoy a sweeping view of Montreal as you slowly twirl above it. Perched on the 30th floor of the Delta Centre-Ville hotel, the Tour de Ville is the only revolving eatery in the city. While you check out the scenery, you can dine on tasty entrees such as smoked salmon and jumbo shrimp. The hotel stands in the center of the city, near the harbor and within a five-minute walk of the Old Montreal historic district. Delta Centre-Ville is also connected to the subway and Montreal’s underground city—a 20-mile-long subterranean labyrinth of shopping malls, museums, and other businesses.
Each Delta, Mode, and Premier room is spacious and stylish, featuring decor in soothing earth tones. Classic Delta rooms contrast with newer, edgier Mode accommodations outfitted with chic wooden furniture and pop art on the walls. The Premier rooms are situated on the hotel’s higher floors and consequently boast gorgeous views of the city. During your stay, you can sample the breakfast, lunch, or dinner buffet at the Bistro Bar Chez Antoine, take a dip in the indoor pool, or have a relaxing massage at the Centre Terra.
Montreal, Quebec: Canada's French-Speaking Cultural Capital
Located about an hour's drive from the northern border of Vermont, Canada's second-largest city is home to nearly 2 million inhabitants, the majority of whom speak French as their primary language. Montreal is renowned for its music and arts scene. Occupying an entire square block downtown, the Place des Arts is a huge complex of theaters and concert halls where opera, ballet, symphony, and jazz shows all take place on a regular basis.
Cobbled streets, historic architecture, and horse-drawn carriages fill the Old Montreal area, which is located within walking distance of the hotel. A popular spot is the Bonsecours Market, a domed plaza where local merchants have been selling their wares for more than 100 years. As you stroll through Old Montreal, make sure to check out the iconic and elaborately decorated Notre-Dame Basilica, one of the city's most famed churches. Built in the Gothic Revival style, it houses a fascinating crypt filled with archaeological treasures.
