MONTREAL--(Marketwire - Mar 29, 2013) - With a location so close to the airport, guest safety at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Montreal Airport hotel goes hand-in-hand with that of the millions who travel through the airport each year. When the hotel was approached by the Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) Airport Canine Patrol about offering space for K-9 training, there was no question.

"When they first approached us to request help with the dog training, I did not hesitate a second," says Maxime Lamoureux, general manager of this Montreal hotel near Place Des Arts. "It is very important to know that a place such as the Montreal-Trudeau Airport, which welcomes 14 million visitors every year, can rely on a well-trained team to assure constant safety."

The K-9 unit specialises in discovering explosives, and plays an important role in airport safety. By teaming up with the hotel, the unit not only has a space to train but a training location that's convenient to the airport.

A convenient location is just one of the perks this hotel offers guests of the human variety. With a 24-hour round-trip shuttle, visitors can travel between the airport and the hotel with ease. Upon arrival, settle into a comfortable room offering everything from free Wi-Fi and a desk to luxurious bedding and an LCD HDTV.
