Montreal - Day One: Land of the Evil Cow

Two weeks ago, we went on a 3-day trip to Montreal. It had been a long planned trip, and we were really looking forward to a brief escape from real life.

We had a direct flight from Dulles to Montreal, which was easy as pie, and immediately made our way to the Montreal Marriott Chateau Champlain. What a great hotel. I love Marriott, as you will soon come to learn, and this one was perfect. Was it the best hotel in which we've ever stayed? No. BUT, it was nice and located right next to the metro, which was perfect! As our custom, we relaxed for a few and then headed out to eat dinner. On the advice of the concierge, we went to a restaurant in the Old Town area called the Mechant Boeuf, or Evil Cow. For meatlovers, such as ourselves, this was perfect. We started off with poutine, which will be a separate post later on, followed by a super fancy burger for me a beer can chicken for Scott. It was a lot of food and we couldn't finish it all, but it was a great evening. It had been a long day so we strolled around for a bit afterwards and then went back to the hotel for a nice nights sleep.

This was our brief first day. More to come!
