Style Beaux Canada
Setting Stylish streets of Vieux Montréal
Why this week? The outdoor season of fast cars (Canadian Grand Prix, 7–9 June), music (International Jazz Festival 28 June to 7 July) and fashion (Mode and Design Festival 31 July to 3 August) is underway. With a little planning, you can take advantage of 15 per cent off your stay when you book seven days prior to your arrival.
