Place des Arts is a major performing arts centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Located in the eastern part of the city’s downtown, between Ste-Catherine and de Maisonneuve Streets, and St-Urbain and Jeanne-Mance streets, in an area now known as the Quartier des Spectacles, the complex is home to the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and the Opéra de Montréal.

Place des Arts was an initiative of Mayor Jean Drapeau, a noted lover of opera, as part of a project to expand the downtown core eastward from the concentration of business and financial activity in the centre-west part of downtown. The Corporation George-Étienne-Cartier, named in honour of George-Étienne Cartier, a Father of Confederation and opera lover, was set up to build it, and the first part of the complex (including the Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier) was inaugurated on September 21, 1963. The other theatres were added progressively. The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal was added to the complex on May 28, 1992.

I’ve stayed here twice, and I’ve enjoyed both visits. The location is easily walkable from the subway, and is in the Latin Quarter which has lots of fun cafes, restaurants, and boutiques nearby. In the summer, I also utilized the bixi bikes nearby for transport.
The staff are friendly and very helpful, too. I’ve opted for private rooms both times I’ve visited, and I really love the renovations that they have done recently. There is also free wifi, and the croissants served at breakfast are very tasty.

Je suis allé deux fois, et j’ai apprécié les deux visites. L’emplacement est facilement accessible à pied du métro, et se trouve dans le Quartier Latin qui a beaucoup de cafés amusantes, restaurants et boutiques à proximité. Durant l’été, j’ai aussi utilisé les vélos BIXI à proximité des transports.
Le personnel est amical et très utile, aussi. J’ai opté pour les chambres privées les deux fois où je suis allé, et je l’aime vraiment les rénovations qu’ils ont fait récemment. Il ya aussi un accès wifi gratuit, et les croissants servis au petit déjeuner sont très savoureux.
