The Ritz-Carlton, Montréal is the Coolest Place to Stay When Visiting Canada

Positioned in the middle of everything worth seeing, the Ritz-Carlton Montréal was a pretty perfect choice for a recent trip to Quebec's Metropolis. Using the hotel as a luxurious home base, I set out to explore the city over the course of three days, soaking up a sampling of French Canadian culture, chilly weather and delicious Québécois cuisine. 

First time visitors will be pleasantly surprised by how French everything is. It feels like a little slice of Paris, and is in fact the second largest French-speaking city in the world. As you navigate the city you will notice that, unlike in Paris, residents will speak to you based on how you greet them. Say hello and you will generally receive an English reply. Bonjour will invite a flurry of French. On the flipside, the most common greeting among Montréalers is actually BonjourHi, highlighting just how bilingual residents are.
