Holiday St & Rue Plateau, Pointe Claire, QC

It should be in the north east of that intersection.

I found you have to change "Trans Canada Hwy" to "autoroute canadienne" or something like that. Google maps and MapQuest have no trouble finding it once you change the hiway name.

I run into a similar problem around here. There are three names for a given stretch of pavement - the numbered street, a common name, and hiway number if it happens to follow that street. And map software will recognize one designation, but not the other.

EX: I was looking for a bank and the 800 # said SW 150 99th Street. Yeah, but the map software only recognized the common name of Old Dixie Hiway. Well, I find the street in question and on the sign is "Old Dixie Hwy, SW 99th Street" (Name on top, number in small print underneith).

'nuf babling, I'm off

Try putting this in on GoogleMaps:

6700 S Service Road Pointe-Claire, QC

...and it'll show up!

I can't take the credit for this as I found this address in the aerial photo NathanMSL posted of the hotel (where he pointed out the 'dragstrip' in the front). Until I punched this address in I too had trouble mapping the hotel location out online. Hope this helps!
