I'm an American planning a trip to Montreal. I'll be there in the next few weeks, and I'm looking for some specific advice.

Having never traveled to Canada, forgive me if some of these questions seem ignorant.
I'd like to stay in Montreal, get drunk and stoned and be able to get back to where I'm staying without driving (obviously). Where should I look to stay? Are there certain districts I should pay most attention to? Conversely, are there areas I should avoid?
How late are bars open? Do I need to change my money? I'll be by myself -- 24/male -- any good singles hot-spots?
How big is the city compared to, say, Boston V. NYC -- the two cities I'm most familier with. How much should I expect to spend on hotel/motel accomodations? What's parking like? Is there anything else I'm overlooking. And, finally, does anyone want to hang out?
