Subject: Montreal
Hi everyone,

I have a dear friend who finds herself unexpectedly having to stay in Montreal for 3 nights before going to meet with relatives in upstate New York. For most of us this would be a treat but this friend is not comfortable at all about travelling on her own and is considering simply staying at an airport hotel for the 3 nights and taking a shuttle into downtown for a few hours here and there.

This may not be a bad idea but I feel there must be better alternatives. So I'm hoping for your suggestions of the best area to stay for this 60'ish friend and any specific hotels would be great (mid price, I should think) Also I'm assuming that there's a shuttle from the airport to downtown.

Any help would be much appreciated. Best regards, Judy Abbotsford BC
