One of the last posts I did back in February was about my essentials for a girl's weekend away. I am happy to report that two of my best gals and I had a fantastic weekend in Old Montreal at the beginning of March, so I thought I would share some of the fab spots we visited. A little inspiration for your next weekend with the girls!

Beauty Sleep: We stayed at the Hotel Place D'Armes, steps away from Notre Dame Cathedral and less than a 10 dollar cab ride away from all the shopping downtown Montreal has to offer. For a decent rate we got a spacious room, complete with fireplace and rain shower. I loved the little perks the hotel had to offer, like a complementary happy hour beverage at their bar, and coffee to start the morning.

Beautify: After a hard day of shopping on Saturday, it was time to re-charge at our hotel's spa. I don't think there is anything more luxurious then throwing on a robe in your hotel room and padding one floor down to the spa. Rain Spa offers an array of treatments that also include access to their hammam, a giant, peaceful Turkish-style sauna.
Brunch: On Sunday we hit up Le Cartet for brunch. Bright and airy with communal style dining tables, it made for the perfect place to fuel up before our trip home. Not to be missed is their boutique where you can pick up gourmet chocolate and other foodie gift items.
