Two seasons in particular stand out as the best times to visit The Ritz-Carlton Montreal: summer and winter. In the summer, guests can enjoy meals and drinks on the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's stunning central terrace, take in the sights from the rooftop salt-water pool and see the ducks that famously live in the pond of the courtyard. There are also several internationally renowned festivals for guests to enjoy in summer, including Just For Laughs and the Montreal Jazz Festival. However, this doesn’t mean one should shy away from Montreal in the winter: A network of underground tunnels makes the most of the downtown core and there are festivals (including the Montreal High Lights Festival, an art and culinary extravaganza) during the colder months as well. And of course, what would be more romantic than cozying up under a blanket for a horse-drawn carriage ride though Old Montreal?
