We don’t have rail stations in Hawai‘i so it’s always exciting for us to get on a train. We arrived early and it was easy to figure out. We grabbed a snack for the train at the many delis there. Sat in the handicapped area...More

This station is a destination in itself with lots of places to eat, especially breakfast and lunch. It's also a great rail station and we were very happy with the train service to Ottawa. Splurge and go business class - it's not that much more...More

Always enjoyed going there to grab a quick bite to eat. Choice is not what is missing. From pastry to steak you can get it all. A bustling place. Great for people watching.

The train station itself is quite nice, spacious interior, easy to navigate & find your track. However, when I walked from my hotel to the train station, there were no signs guiding you to the place. I walked by it and had to turn back.

Our most recent trip was a non stop flight to Montreal followed by a cruise from Quebec to Boston. I chose to travel by train rather then fly between the 2 cities. The 3 hour ride was very pleasant offering some very picturesque fall scenery...More

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
