Can anyone recommend a nice timeshare in either Montreal or Quebec City? We have access to both RCI and II. Our kids are 7 and 10 so kid-friendly is a plus. We'd like to go this summer as the exchange rate is very favorable right now. Thanks!
Marriott has a very nice SpringHill Suites in Old Montreal which is almost like a timeshare.
Suggest you also check www.vrbo.com for both Montreal and Quebec city...I checked and saw some 2-4 bedroom suites for as low as $100 a night.
You will love the food there too as well as the sites. Fairmont is very nice, historic and well located, but it's a hotel room.
We stayed at Club GeoPremiere at Auberge du Lac Morency a few years ago. Its about an hour north of Montreal near Saint Hippolite.
Nice area. There are older cabin like buildings which we stayed in as we did not have many points at the time. While they are fully modern / heated / insulated / fireplaced / wifi inside we felt crampped in there. Then there are also newer condo like buildings which I bet are pretty nice. When we go back sometime we plan to get these newer units with our Wyndham points which work directly.
The Concorde has closed... no longer a hotel. I recommend the "Clarendon", an art nouveau hotel just across from the Basilica and Hotel de Ville. Prices more reasonable than the Chateau Frontenac and it's right in the middle of everything.
Ironwood,OutSkiing, we are there right now ending our week. We are up the hill in one of the newer condo buildings. The one bedroom condo we are in is nice but not luxurious except for the view overlooking the lake... it's a magnificent wilderness vista. We've had a very pleasant week. Only complaint is the poor quality mattress and bedding. But, it's too far from Montreal for anyone considering this location as a base for visiting the city. For one thing the 20km road out from the lake to the AutoRoute to Montreal is a backwoods winding trail that you can't drive any quicker than the posted 50 km maximum.
