MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) - Summer is a time for swimming, ice cream and, if you're Montreal, a slew of hot-ticket events. As this Francophone city prepares to welcome a bevy of A-list stars and organise some of its biggest annual festivals, travellers are realising that the Residence Inn Montreal Airport is one place where they can catch all their favourite events and still feel like they're on a luxurious vacation.
Hotels near the Dorval Airport have long appealed to business travellers who appreciate the short commute to the airport, as well as to those on vacation who want to explore nearby amusement parks and golf. Now, it turns out, Dorval Montreal hotels are also ideal for blockbuster events happening downtown.
One of the biggest advantages is the distance. The Residence Inn Montreal Airport, for example, is just 12 kilometers from the downtown area, which makes it convenient without being claustrophobically close. And with names like Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Michael Bublé, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie all coming to town this summer, the crowds promise to be appropriately big. The annual Just for Laughs comedy festival, which features some of the best comedic talent alongside up-and-comers, is also scheduled for two sidesplitting weeks in July. And the International Jazz Festival has been entertaining audiences, often for free, for 30 years with more than 800 concerts representing some 30 countries.
With so much talent and so many performances to see, it will be easy to spend several weeks in town on a long holiday. And among Dorval hotels, no place makes extended stays more comfortable than the Residence Inn Montreal Airport. Not only does this property offer a range of studio and one- and two-bedroom suites that are ideally suited for groups, but its renovations to the lobby and all 169 guest suites will be completed in time for summer visitors.
Also unique among Montreal Dorval Airport hotels, this property offers a range of complimentary amenities that make its guests feel right at home. Parking (for both cars and busses), daily hot breakfasts, high-speed wireless Internet access and regular evening socials, for example, are all included in each guest's stay. And when visitors want to meet up before or after a show for dinner and drinks, the hotel's trendy YUL Restaurant & Bar is just the ticket. Its renowned, internationally-inspired cuisine is as delicious as the restaurant is stylish.
There's never been a better time to visit Montreal than the summer of 2014. And this extended-stay Dorval Airport hotel is quite possibly the only way a traveller can improve upon an already star-studded vacation experience.
