Yup! I never miss it - it's fantastic. However, you're going to have a very, very hard time booking anywhere to stay. The city is absolutely packed for those 10 days. I suggest you start looking as soon as you finish reading this!

You can try some hotels and motels more up north in the city. A friend of mine came last year around this time and couldn't find accomodation anywhere downtown. He managed to get himself a motel room around Sauve metro station, which is a little far from Jazz Fest, but still convenient enough to get to it within 30-45 minutes by subway.

Another option is to check hotels on the south shore - specifically Longueuil, as it has a Metro station that will take you straight downtown without having to worry about crossing the bridge by bus or (horrors!)car. I'm sure both Expedia and TripAdvisor will have listings for Longueuil.

Are you coming in by train?
