My big trip to Montreal

Hokay... more details.

Apparently I am going to "Greenfield park" area. ( I dont know where that is AT ALL) anyways, if anyone is familiar with that area, are there any good motels there?
Have to start making reservations now and what not.

The main street where you'll find at least two dozen hotels is Taschereau Boulevard. What is your budget like? Will you have a car? Greenfield Park is a small family oriented town on the south shore of Montreal (one town over from mine). About 15 minutes from Old Montreal and 20 from downtown (when there's no traffic on the bridges). If you need any help finding places or getting around, let me know, it'd be a pleasure to help out.

I will have a car with me. And I would prefer to be a bit away from the major hustle and bustle of everything.

Taschereau Boulevard is where you'll find all the hotels and motels from low to very high prices. You can also look anywhere in St.Hubert and Brossard (the nicer ones you'll most likely find here), all within several minutes of GFP. Or if you want to get a little further away, there's St. Lambert (quite pricey) or LaPrairie. Tashereau is really the only major street that transverses all these towns where you'll find everything.

So far the only place I found that allows pets for an extra 10$ per day. The room is on the first floor and also used for clients who are smokers. May not appeal to you if you're a non-smoker. I'll keep looking.

Im only coming with Nikita ( shes the friendliest of my bunch really) Puppy would never make the trip sitting in a car that long, and well, Bailey is way too dog aggressive to even consider making friends with others... Meiko has some form of anxiety attacks when in the city so he too is a no go.
Just Kita, Guy and myself ( not 100% sure about Guy though)
I plan on driving around alot and seeing different areas, so we're all gonna have to make some arrangements to meet up!

I live about 3 minutes away from this hotel and it's the best one you'll find in this area. The rooms are nice and clean and your located right at the highway that brings you directly into downtown Montreal. Just behind the hotel there's the Champlain Mall, which is quite large if you're into shopping. Not to mention that it's just down the road from Greenfield Park.

Sounds like a good hub for a visit, Erykah! Let me know if you are passing through Cornwall-even if my store lease says no animals, if it's through the day that you'd be stopping by, well, I won't tell the landlord if you won't!

(Kita's a service dog, right? Your helper dog? Can't refuse to let a service dog in the store, now can I? )

Just so you know, all Holiday Inns and Quality Hotels allow pets, at least I have never found one that doesnt. Quality Hotels don't charge extra, but I think Holiday Inn does.

When we went to Kelowna last month I emailed the Chamber of Commerce there and asked them for a list of motels that accepted pets. They emailed me back with a list of about thirty in all price ranges. You can also get maps of the city from them.

Erykah, is this a pets.ca related trip for the purposes of meeting dogs and people? Or do you have other business there?

Cause I truly think we should have some sort of pets.ca meet and greet, maybe Cornwall or Kingston or Belleville are good halfway points for those of us in the eastern portion of the country. I'd be willing to help with the planning. Sorry for the veer off topic.
