After many sleepless nights, and we finally came down to deal with it. My wife and i stayed at La Centerville hotel right across from the consulate office where 1 min walking distance. We got there around 5 after 7 and couple mins later, a lady showed up and follow more ppl gathering in front of the door. The security didnt open door until 730. They checked us in and make sure we have no metal, cellphone or any electronic devices, no big bag, so we used our shopping bag to carry our documents and pictures. We went down stair and waited for another security to escort us up to 19th floor. we waited again until they called us to their window, we gave them 2 passport pictures and all the requirement docs. The interview was so quick by a nice gentlement, he asked us couple question such as how do we met, my wife have any problem when crossing the border, any criminal records, living any country other than the one listed. And he said to us congratulation and gave her welcome letter. Everything was quick and easy, more than what we could think of. good luck with everyone have interview this months and any months follow that. thanks VJ alot, this really helpful and gave us a lot of inf

Congratulations on the approval and thanks for helping people like us, with interviews coming up in near future, feel more relaxed about the interview. Was teh hotel you stayed in reasonably priced? Does it have a shuttle bus from the airport?

MTL Hotel reviews: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/90924-hotel-reviews-montreal/


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

it is 69 dollars if you book with the hotel or you can google and find the website with good deal around 65. This includes internet, but it is kind of slow, they dont have shuttle bus but you can take a cab for flat rate 38 dollars from airport to anywhere in downtown. the room is decent, no fancy, dont expect too much about it. My room has fridge, stove and microwave. Medisys (medical exam) is 10 to 15 mins walking distance aways from the hotel. The waiting for medical exam is not long and the results return in 3 days, good thing they put x-ray film in the cd so you dont have to carry the big one around. Making sure that you have all the shots records(vaccines) in the vaccines book. If you have those flu shots, MMR, Influenza which are important, you should go to near medical clinic (or family doctor) ask for it and keep the record. They will be cheaper than at the medical exam clinic.

I stayed there back in 2004! It surely was not a modern room. Was clean, had the fridge for my beer, so i was happy! The room itself was stuck inthe 70/80's,lol! if my wife had been there, would have preferred something a bit more modern, but for me--Tv for hockey, fridge for beer, good to go!! As well a few yrsd back there was a bed bug incident, but really, it happens to them all, even 5 star hotels! happenes everywhere! Has even happened just this week at the cdn winter game in Halifax at the athletes village!!
