Filed in Canadian F1 Travel Guide by on 2 Comments

The best places to stay in Montreal for the 2017 Canadian Formula 1 Grand Prix on June 9-11.

It’s hard to avoid the ‘F1 surcharge’ for accommodation on Grand Prix weekend in Montreal, but the good news is that it’s a big city and there are still plenty of options for fans on all budgets, though it still pays to book well in advance. With an efficient metro and public transport system, most central areas of Montreal are worth considering for your Grand Prix accommodation. Our picks below are located in the lively downtown area, where you can easily get to the Gilles Villeneuve circuit by public transport each day in around 30-45 minutes.

Reserve your accommodation with our partners via the links on this page – you won’t pay more and you’ll be supporting the future development of this site.
