    Yes! Last October, my wife and I were in Montreal and I was able to connect to our hotel's wifi just fine.

    Enjoy your trip!

    Settings> Wireless & Networks> Mobile Networks> Data Enabled -- make sure this is unchecked. Now turn on WiFi and ONLY use WiFi. Also, since any call you make will be HORRIBLY expensive, if you can even get a signal (and foreign networks might charge even for connecting to it), you might want to consider running with WiFi hot and Airplane mode turned off -- unless you have a foreign calling option with Verizon. :)
