We couldn’t have asked for a better stay while returning back from our tiring trip from Quebec and Montreal and on our way back to Toronto. The hotel is just a 40 minute drive to the center of the action in Montreal. We highly recommend this very crisp, clean and modern Holiday Inn Express. We stayed here to avoid the downtown traffic while returning to Toronto- what a great decision!

Only 25 minutes from Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport and less than 40 minutes from the bustling city of Montréal, the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Vaudreuil-Dorion is conveniently located by the Trans-Canada Highway (40) and in proximity to the 30 and 20.

For the business traveller, several industrial parks such as Joseph Carrier with companies like Kraft, Ericsson, Winpak, Norampac (Cascades), Immunotec, Quadra, Canadian Helicopters, to only name a few , are just minutes from the hotel.

Our check-in was handled very nicely by the Front Desk associate. The reception staff took time to explain the area to us and places to visit while staying in Vaudreuil-Dorion. In the morning we had an opportunity to meet Michelle Elfassy, Director of Sales, who took time to take us around and show us the different rooms and facilities the hotel has to offer to its guests.

The modern guest rooms featured laminated wooden floors, bamboo fiber mattress and independent A/C-heating units. There was a 42” flat screen TV, 9′ ceiling; luggage bench with storage drawers; mini-fridge and soft and firm pillows.

The rooms were spacious and very chic in design, having a very European style to them. The beds were very comfortable and provide a good night’s rest. We were a group of 3 adults and 2 kids and we managed to accommodate comfortably in the room with 2 queen beds and an extra sofa-bed.

The washroom was well lit, with a main light, a timer-controlled heat light, and LED lighting all around the perimeter of the large mirror. The shower/bathtub had one of those newer arched shower curtain rails that gives a person that little extra space in the shower.

The eating area is large and spacious, and the food selection even includes a buffet-style service of scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage. Of course, the standard offerings of buns, toast, cereals, coffee/tea, juices, etc. are also available.

The dining room is huge and very bright, and there is even an “internet station” in the lobby, where 2 PCs are available for guest to use.

The hotel has 2 meeting rooms and free high speed wireless internet.

There is a smaller heated indoor pool in the hotel (which we did not have a chance to use). The pool looked clean with guests enjoying the facilities.  .

There is a complimentary Fitness Center with Treadmill, elliptical, recumbent bike and free weights

Sugar Shacks in Quebec, Sucrerie de la Montagne

On the third day of our trip, the Holiday Inn-hotel advised us to stop over at the Sugar Shack, they insisted that we should visit there and we would love this place, and to our surprise it was truly amazing, glad we did it. La Sucrerie de la Montagne is nestled in the forest of Rigaud. If you have a chance to stop by, if not for a full traditional Quebec meal, at least for a coffee, pancakes and homemade maple syrup or sugar pie. The site is authentically unique as is the owner, Mr. Pierre Faucher.

Our review of the place can be seen at https://vandanarajbhatt.com/2016/08/15/nestled-in-the-woods-you-shouldnt-miss-this-sugar-shack-while-driving-to-montreal/

There is a zoological park on your way to Montreal. It is the only zoo where you will find only animals indigenous to the Province of Québec living in a natural environment.  It is educational and fun for all ages. www.zooecomuseum.ca

There is also Arbraska Rigaud which offers adventures in the Forest for children 5 and older.  Activities and games from trees to trees!  www.arbraska.com
