After a long 6 hour road trip we finally reached our destination. We were staying at the Westin Hotel.
The Westin Hotel is a pretty classy hotel right across the Palais des Congres where they held the Bal-en-Blanc festival. The hotel also has a wicked pool with a glass floor where you can see cars pull up to the hotel lobby.
The church's Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues.
At night we party hard on Saint-Laurent's clubbing district. We also dropped by the W Hotel and Time Supper Club.
Other notable places are; Les 3 Brasseurs who serve some epic beers, Chinatown although not recommended on a cold day and Le Steak Frites across the Westin Hotel.
