It is important that you make your hotel reservations as quickly as possible because Montréal is a tourist mecca in the summer (see Montrealplus.ca
for all sorts of useful information about Montréal).
Here are some suggestions for accommodation which include prices and distance from the conference venue École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). All are a walking distance from the conference venue or with easy access by bus or subway.
