Thread: How late does everything run during F1?

  1. #1

    How late does everything run during F1?

    I am visiting for the F1 weekend June 11 - 14.

    My flight into Montreal arrives at 12:14AM. Allowing for time to collect bags and clear passport control and customs, I expect that I will enter the city around 2 AM.

    I am considering whether I could A) sleep on the plane and B) stay up for the next 9 - 12 hours. I would check into my hotel around noon or 2:00 PM (hopefully).

    Is there enough to do between 2:00 AM and 2:00 PM in Montreal?

    On the flipside, I leave Monday morning at 6:00 AM. Could I avoid a hotel room on Sunday night? If I allow for 2 hours as I am returning to the U.S. and this is technically an international flight then I am leaving for the airport around 3:30 AM? That seems like I could push it, save a night in a hotel and enjoy MOntreal a bit longer.

    I can afford hotel rooms for all three nights but this is a guys' get away weekend and I like to save money.

    I appreciate everyone's response.

    Among the could head over to the Chablis St. Jacques, a destination any cab driver will be familiar with. They rent rooms for four hours for about 50$. Arrange with an agency to deliver you some company around 2:30. Assuming that she arrives on time, she leaves around 3:30, leaving you 2.5 hours to sleep before you have to clear the room.

    Many of the agencies in town operate until 4 am, among them both Devilish and Girls on Fire.

    Now 6 am, you head off to breakfast, and there are many options in all parts of town, and are occupied until nearly 8 am. You've now killed off half the time until your room is available, had some fun and a good meal.

    That would be a good suggestion for most of the year but on Grand Prix weekend, hotel rooms are fully book in Montreal and around.

    How late?
    2 hours, that's how late, and I was just the second appointment.
    It didn't get better for the next guy as she overstayed 15 minutes... we were in the middle of "something".
    (my indirect questionning suggests I didn't get bumped, but it was really traffic hell back and forth)
