Jean Vauquelin (February 1728-10 November 1772) was a French naval officer who came to Canada as part of the naval force innvolved in the Seven Years' War. He arrived in 1759 in commander of the frigate Atalante. He is commemorated by Vauquelin Square, a small square located in Old Montreal.
A brand new thirty room hotel has been constructed, almost overnight, in the middle of Jean Drapeau Park in Montreal, Canada.
Along with the Igloo shaped hotel, there is a restaurant, bar, conference center and even a chapel.
