"Montreal -- Place Viger Hotel: Amongst its many good hotels, Montreal has the Place Viger, erected and operated by the Canadian Pacific Railway. This imposing structure in named in honor of the first mayor of Montreal. Although located amidst historical, quiet and restful surroundings, the hotel is only a few minutes' walk from the business portion of the city and the steamship docks. Behind the hotel is Place Viger Station, terminal of Canadian pacific lines to the Laurentian Mountains, Quebec, the North Shore of the Ottawa River, etc."
