  8. Montréal Hotels Open Rooms For Private Indoor Dining

    In normal times, any hotel that offers hourly rates would be considered a bit low-rent. However, anything goes in a pandemic! In Montréal, the beautiful eastern Canadian city known for its vibrant dining scene, three hotels are hosting private dining experiences for guests that are just looking for a few hours out of the house, and not a room for the evening.

However, there is some good news, in the form of financial assistance for restaurants. Continue reading →
